With summer right around the corner, odds are you're looking for a way to get a healthy glow. Well, look no further. Frank Body's Shimmer Scrub is just as incredible as the packaging makes it seem. Think: a healthy glow and moisturized skin all before the hot water runs out. The name might sound intimidating, but there's nothing scary about this shimmery skincare item.

When I first heard the words "Shimmer Scrub," I have to admit that I was somewhat hesitant. Don't get me wrong, I love glitter just as much as the next person. But the idea of rubbing it all over my body is neither appealing to me nor entirely wearable for everyday. Since I love every other product that Frank Body makes, I decided to give it a try. And, boy, am I glad that I did.

This product is hands-down the best coffee scrub that I've ever used, and I've tested a lot of them. Not only does it exfoliate the skin, but it leaves you feeling super moisturized and visibly glowing. The brand wasn't kidding when they described that as highlighter for your body. The shine isn't glittery at all, but it leaves the skin with a healthy sheen like I've never seen before in a skincare product.

There are a few big differences between the limited-edition Shimmer Scrub and other Frank Body Coffee Scrubs that I've used. First off, this one smells like a sugary cappuccino instead of just straight coffee, which, despite not being a fan of sweet-smelling scents, I absolutely loved. The second big difference is that it looks like sand rather than coffee grounds.

Also unlike other Frank Body Coffee Scrubs, this one isn't dry when you apply it. Although you should still use it in the shower with water, you can feel the moisture in the product as soon as you put it in your hands. It's still natural and vegan, but this time it has mica powder in it, which, according to the brand, is what gives the skin that shimmer.

It was hard for the camera to pick up the shine of my skin, but it's clear to see how healthy it looks, and the effect lasted all day. I noticed it whenever the light hit my skin, and it made me feel like a goddess. It's safe to say that I'm obsessed. I will be buying backups when the Shimmer Scrub comes out on May 1, because I want this kind of glow all spring and summer long.

Between the natural ingredients, the stunning holographic packaging, and the skin benefits, you really can't go wrong with this product. Unfortunately, it is limited edition, so you'll want to stock up on this item as soon as you can. Because something this great is sure to sell out fast!
