kbshimmer: hand, body and cuticle creams


kbshimmer's logo refresh along with these beautiful new scents has me like woah! Even the little dots are color coordinated holo to match the scent, simply magical!

Tide Me Over
Waves crashing against the shore, a glass of fresh coconut water and sandals lay next to the hammock where relaxation and daydreaming are the norm. Tide Me Over invokes the feel of those shore side days, starting with notes of fresh coconut. Then creamy shea butter softens this blend along with notes of sensual sandalwood and sea salt. (tinted light blue)

On my skin: Coconut is predominant in this blend, the sandalwood elevates it to a more realistic coconut beach scent (no plastic here). Sea salt in fragrance is usually a light fresh/clean scent, in this is it subtle and blends very nicely.

A creamy, thick, moisturizing lotion to keep skin soft and supple even in the harshest of climates. The non-greasy formula absorbs fairly quick and doesn't leave a shine after fully absorbed. It's also vegan - enriched with jojoba oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and olive oil. My skin felt smooth and almost silky feeling after application. With continued use, I've noticed improved overall softness as well. :)

The diptych below shows Tide Me Over on the back of my swatching hand as I apply the lotion. Hopefully the thickness/consistency shows in the photos, the lotion definitely stays put before being massaged in.

I also tried a few new scents in the Picture Perfect Matte Cuticle Cream. I have almost exclusively used this to shoot photos since the logo refresh, if you want to look back at some image examples.

Picture Perfect Cuticle Cream is enriched with jojoba oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and olive oil. When applied it soaks in and leaves behind a silky matte finish for immediate photo taking and shareing of freshly manicured nails. Not only is it a great moisturizer and perfectly purse sized, this cream is also a time saver for those that swatch and take photos back to back.

Blushed Orchid
That first flower plucked from the garden, that prom corsage nervously pinned on, those lush orchids blooming in windowsills with shades of peach, pink, purple and white. Blushed Orchid is the ideal floral scent for those that want a hint of freshness and nature, without smelling like a nursery. Sweet orchid notes lift this dainty scent up, while hints of pear nectar perfectly blend with sandalwood and soft amber for a sensual scent that anyone would love.

On my skin: Definitely floral but not overbearingly heady, a bit powdery and soft. Feminine, reminds me of springtime bouquets and oddly, white chocolate.

Just Beachy
Fresh from the market, juicy watermelon, sticky cantaloupe, and pure sugarcane blend in this beachy scent. With its fruity sweet succulent notes, Just Beachy is the perfect blend of frozen drink and tropical island with blooms of lilies and orchids, salty ocean breezes and pure white sand rounding out this breezy luscious scent.

On my skin: Definitely fruity, but there's a note in this that I'm not fond of (personal preference). My guess is the lillies or white sand note; but it must be a top note because after I've worn it for a bit I no longer detect it quite as much. I definitely get the melon and a strong floral.
