bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream ($35.00 for 6.0 oz.) is a shimmering body cream that’s supposed to be “ultrarich, non-greasy.” It’s a thick body cream–somewhere between a more typical body butter and a whipped body butter, as it’s fairly solid and isn’t going to drip out of the jar, but it spreads well and doesn’t have to be scraped out by a legitimate block o’ body butter.

I’m a big fan of bareMinerals’ recent skincare range, so I was eager to try this body cream, which apparently also came out last year for the holidays–it’s limited edition again this year–but I was surprised to see it was available for $28 last year and has been bumped up to $35 for this year. SkinStore is still selling it for $28, though, if it’s something you wanted to try. I’m not a fan of limited edition skincare products (why!!!), and the significant increase in price is definitely off-putting. I do like the product; it’s a good, solid body cream. It’s not the very, very best I’ve ever tried, but it’s nice. Despite its thick, rich consistency, it absorbs within a minute or less. It spreads easily across the skin, and a little goes a long way. It leaves skin feeling softer, more hydrated but not greasy or oily.For normal-to-dry skin, I think it should provide an appropriate level of hydrating, as it was perfect for my arms, but on my desert-like legs, it didn’t fully hydrate.  It has a slightly earthy, herbal scent, but it’s not too strong, that is similar to the rest of the bareMinerals’ skincare range.  There is a fine gold shimmer that sits on the skin after application, but it will rub off at times (I sat cross-legged, and I saw the heel of my slipper was dazzling!). It’s a nice veil of shimmer–not sparkle–that would work well on decolletage and legs for the holidays.
