Smells like grandma.

No. No. NO. Do not want. The smell is way to strong, The price is all wrong, and it's super oily. The shimmer is lovely but not worth the price or greasy skin- which by the way is not sensuous at all.
shimmers, all natural, moisturizer, long-lasting shimmer.
greasy, strong scent, not worth the price.

extremely useful review
I love the scent of Amber. Love it. But you really have to do it right, otherwise it will smell like some cheap Avon product your grandma uses.

I hate whatever it is that they did here.

The Simmer Cream comes in a clear plastic 1.25 oz jar with a black screw off lid. The cream is a thick consistency similar to a night face cream, with a light golden shade and visible shimmers. Once applied the shimmers are long lasting and do not rub off. The tinted cream fades once dried leaving you with a faint shimmer adorned throughout your body. The smell however, well that's another story, and we will get to that in a minute.

The Shimmer Cream is tested on people and not animals and is made of all natural ingredients.

The ingredients are:
Organic Sunflower Oil: has smoothing properties.
Distilled Water: also known as Aqua, H20, etc; it is used as a solvent in which it dissolves many of the ingredients. It also helps to form emulsions thus combining ingredients.
Beeswax an emollient, as well as a skin protective and helps with the over all consistency.
Shea Butter is a classic skin conditioner.
Vitamin E: is used as a classic skin conditioner.
Grapefruit Seed Extract: is a moisturizer. It has mildly astringent qualities, which help to tighten and tone the skin.
Cosmetic Sparkles: fine warm toned glitter
Carrot Oil: skin protection, conditioner and firming agent.
Premium Amber Scent: that smells like grandma.

Most of the ingredients are emollients and skin conditioners. Most, if not all of these oils, have anti-aging properties. Oils are great for your skin as they help relieve dryness and itching caused by these conditions. They also increase collagen production in the skin. You are also giving your skin a nourishing treat via massage, Vitamin 'E' being the most predominant.

I do not recommend this product for the delicate facial area.
The Shimmer Cream goes on easy and a little bit goes a long way. The sparkles aren't large enough to be irritating, and cannot be felt. But it's super oily, and takes a while to soak into your skin. Even after it does soak in, it feels similar to Carmex once applied. It takes a while to not feel sticky.

If you have sensitive skin, do not use this product since it could cause skin irritations, possibly even clog your pores. It is not made for facial use and could irritate if applied to delicate areas, such as the face.
The scent is strong, and fades with time, but for an hour or so you will smell like a senior citizen bar fly.

Here you can see the creme applied to the top of my hand.

If the 'Vroom' rating worked for scents it would be a 5 in terms of intensity. The shimmers are also long lasting and don't seem to rub off, so I guess it has that going for it. But since there is not a lot going on with this product it's hard to weigh the pro's and con's when there are so very few of both.

Bottom Line: The smell is incredibly strong and seriously smells like an old woman, it is a complete deal breaker for me.
It isn't the warm amber I am used to but more of an rich earthy, sultry amber. I can't pin point the scent exactly and is all relative to what you like. What's not for me could very easily be something that you love.
