Review: SunFX Body Shimmer Lotion

I had never heard of SunFX before BeautyArmy honestly. When I saw that everyone was getting tan things and things to help keep their tan, I knew it was probably a company I would not be interested in. Reason being is I don't try and keep my tan. Living in Florida, I don't need to try and keep my tan. Its kinda easy, so I don't redily look for tanning products or products that enhance the look of your tan.

When I saw the Body Shimmer in my selection to pick, I figured that I would give it a shot. A little shimmer on the body is never a bad thing, especially for a night out. So I chose it and when I got it, the first thing I did was smell it (like I do with everything) and it smells AMAZING. This has Macadamia Oil in it, I personally don't know what macadamia smells like, but let me tell you this lotion smells AMAZING! The smell honestly reminds me of when my Mom used to use those tanning oil's to help keep her tan and everything. Thats what it reminds me of.

The lotion itself is white, but you can tell there is some serious shimmer in it that makes it look a silvery white. I didn't notice this the first time, because I didnt look extremely close. Now let me tell you, be careful with this stuff. When I applied it, I put it on my legs first after I shaved and didn't really pay close attention to them, because... well they are my legs. Now when I looked at my hands I was like .. o.O maybe the shimmer just stayed on my hands, kinda weird but okay. So I went and washed my hands and went on my way. Well, this kind of sat in my box of things that I needed to review, so I tried it again and I instantly wanted to walk out into the sun and scream "I AM EDWARD!!!", unfortunately for me it was 10pm, so that was out of the question. I literally had looked like I rolled in glitter, it was absolutely horrifying! I instantly ran to the shower to wash it all off.

That is the reason that I would stay away from this honestly. The moisturizing aspect of this is amazing. I really enjoy it. Its not too greasy, but it helps my skin stay and feel moisturized. So that is something good about it.

I know a lot of people really love that shiny covered in shimmer look, for me personally. I don't. I thin kthat this is an amazing product, just for me, I felt like I was something straight out of Twilight. That is really the only downfall I find with this product, if it didn't has as much shimmer shoved into this, it would be perfect! Personally I am not into self tanning, I never was and honestly probably never will be. Why this ended up in my selection window, Im not sure, it kinda feels a bit random to me anyways.

The "deluxe sample size" of this is 65 ml or 2.2 fl oz. This is a HUGE "sample". The full size of this is 200ml or around 6.8fl oz (dont quote me) and it retails for $24.95. The full size itself is huge!

You can purchase this HERE or on BeautyArmy's WebStore


  1. The same thing happened to me with a moisturizer from Burt's Bees-it said it could be used on the face, so I did, and my mom told me the casting calls for Twilight were over. Glitter was everywhere! I don't get the glitter craze lol xoxo

  2. Oh my goodness! That is insane! I would have been horrified. Oh goodness! Haha, I don't understand the glitter craze either. D: Its a little overdone, especially when its ALL OVER your body
