This past fall, we were deep into building the new KBShimmer. We ordered hundreds of scents, blended, sniffed, and narrowed it down to about 20 we loved. But it was a heated debate here at KBShimmer, which scents should stay, which should go, and what new scents we should bring in. We narrowed it down a bit further, and then sent samples out to our fan group volunteers and bloggers. They ranked each scent, and the results were tallied. Below are the winners and 7 scents you will find available on KBShimmer.com. Click the titles or pictures below to shop each scent.
A crisp cotton t-shirt, fresh eggs from the farm stand, tomatoes ripe from the vine. Sometimes you just want good quality products without all the extras, pure, simple, and oh so good. KBShimmer Barely There is just that, a way to make your skin just so good without the extra fragrances and colors that can be harsh on sensitive skin. Barely There products have no scent or colorants added. Any fragrance you smell is from the ingredients themselves, the shea butter, the cocoa butter, the olive oil. Not plain, but just right for those sensitive to fragrance and colors.
