Rated 2 out of 5 by Mellieha Disappointed
It is not usual for me to be disappointed with anything from QVC but on this occasion , unfortunately I was. This body cream was sticky and therefore did not absorb very well. I found that a lot of product was needed to achieve a sheen on the body and in addition to this I did not like the smell. The price was too high , I feel, for such a poor product. I will be sticking with Gatineau from now on and forget the' sheen ' methinks!

Broadly speaking, it does what it says on the tin, the texture of the body butter is nice and moisturising without being sticky. It adds a very subtle luminosity, but I found most of the shine ends up on my hands rather than on my body when applying.
My problem is largely with the coconut scent. It is very hard to get the fragrance of coconut right, and unfortunately this product is on the tacky end in terms of smell.
And like other reviewers, the product is very expensive when compared to other body butters in the range which are sold in duos at a very similar price. Will be returning mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by joshabba Wanted to love it...didn't!
I have been looking for the perfect product to achieve that 'Celebrity' leg sheen which is a healthy, glossy, moisturised finish therefore the combination of good for you ingredients and the thick butter texture got me excited!
When seen on screen, this appeared to meet my expectations however in reality, this was another product that just applied shimmer/glitter but in a rose gold colour.
Admittedly, it does moisturise and I love products that do good as well as look good AND, it did initially give a good moisturised sheen to the skin HOWEVER.... once the moisture has been absorbed by your skin, a rose gold fine glitter is left on the skin #which reminded me of a version of a sun protection brand on QVC but was a more concentrated glimmer#.
If the sparkly glimmer is what you are after, then this could be for you but I believe I can achieve this look with much cheaper products #plus I used quite a bit of this in one go so not great value for money#.
Really wanted to love this but it's not for me...sorry Josie :#

This smells okay, thought would smell fresher. Doesn't spread very well, quite claggy! The shimmer is okay although I would rather the other aspects were better & have no shimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TruthfullyFair devine sheen and delicate coconut scent
This is so lovely to use - it really is a lovely whipped texture - more like meringue mix than whipped cream - it's devine. The scent is delicate and lasts on me.
Unfortunately the packaging is the standard whipped argan oil one, not the illuminating one that you see on the internet - but it DOES contain the Rose Gold, toasted coconut, illuminating product. Sort this out QVC please.
The other reviewer might want to repurchase for her coconut loving friend :-)
The particles are so fine, it does make your skin glow. I think it almost makes my skin look like I've put an oil on it - if that makes sense - it's that kind of sheen you get. When you look up close you see the rosey tinted shimmer it has. Think it will flatter lots of skin tones and shades.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lourdas Not toasted coconut
I ordered this for a relative who loves all things coconut. The product is actually the whipped argan oil body butter with no mention of coconut anywhere on the packaging so not suitable as a gift for a coconut loverI have looked into this and there is a different Josie Maran product with a rose gold tint and toasted coconut as the product name but this is not it and it does not appear to be available from QVC in the UK.
