I have played around with making shimmer lotions a couple of times & not been totally pleased w/ my results. I want to add micro mica to some of my lotions for the Holidays but am wondering about ratios. I am useing an awful lot & not geting the shimmer I am wanting. I am useing the 'city ligts' & the "stellar white" micas. Anyone make shimmer lotion with great results? What ratios are you useing? Is there a better shimmer option than the mica? I don't want to do glitter, just shimmer.. or do I? Thanks!

What about using glitter that is sold by soap making companies? I am if it's sold as soap safe, what about lotion safe. The company would know.

Every Holiday season I hav the same question.

I noticed WSp has added a couple of shimmer products to use as an additive, Anyone try them yet?

That's about a tablspoon for 16oz? Wow that's a lot of mica!

Winter Frost... that sounds delightful!
