Let’s face it: We’re living in a time when unicorn nails, graffiti hair, and holographic makeup rule everything. The fact that out-of-this-world trends have gone mainstream proves that peeps are open to experimenting with their beauty routines. But, if I’m totally honest, I’m not one of them. So, as someone who’s typically not a fan of over-the-top glitzy beauty products, I was skeptical (to say the least) when the buzzy Frank Body Shimmer Scrub ($20) landed on my desk to test out.
Despite my concerns (will I look like a walking glitter bomb? Will it turn everything it touches into a shimmering mess? Is it wearable?), I was proven wrong after giving this new product — that currently has a waitlist with 50,000 people on it — a dedicated try. I now am obsessed AF with it. Here’s why.
It makes your skin feel silky-smooth. Don’t let the dreamy holographic packaging let you forget that this is a legit skincare product. Packed with sugar, salt, ground coffee beans, and vitamin E, this scrub gives your bod the best of both worlds: a solid exfoliation and a surge of moisture. It’ll gently slough off dead, dull skin while revealing insanely soft skin that actually feels hydrated, a characteristic I’ve never experienced with a body exfoliator.
It’s perfect for summer or parties — or both. This is what I consider a special occasion beauty product. It might not be practical for everyday wear because of the shimmer, but it’s made to sport at fun events. I use it when I want to kick my vibe up a notch for a night on the town, a bachelorette party, a music festival, or even a sunny day that calls for endless rosé by the pool.
It’s fun. Something about using an exfoliator that makes you feel like a unicorn can’t be missed. While it’s totally understandable to turn to a basic body wash day-to-day, mixing things up with this glimmering addition will put an instant smile on your face.
It gives your skin the perfect amount of gleamy glitz. There is no need to worry about looking like you bathed in a pool of glitter after using this magical creation.There’s definitely a noticeable amount of glistening going on, but it’s actually wearable. The formula is packed with tiny gold and silver particles that give off a sun-kissed, sparkling look that’s extra gorgeous when the sun (or light) hits it.
