Review: I first heard about this product from Erika on Instagram (@missglamerika).  Of course, I asked her how she felt about the product and then, BAM! I added it to my Sephora cart and never looked back.  The packaging is a bright yellow box with brown typography and teal colored accents - totally summer and tropical vibes.  I tried out the smaller jar first which is $20 for 2.5oz and then purchased the large one for $45.  The smell is amazing - it is a mix of almond, coconut and all sorts of beautiful beach scents.  This is not a weight-loss cream as I have received a lot of questions of whether it slims down certain areas of the skin or body parts.  No, this product does not do that.  It is a moisturizer that helps firm the skin, that is all.  It does have some shimmer particles in it but it is not noticeable unless the sun hits the skin.  I honestly like that it provides shimmer and moisturizes and firms at the same time.  I am always outdoors during the summer (well, pretty much all year) and this also keeps my skin hydrated and retains its moisture.  

Would I repurchase? Already did. Twice going on third time.
