Sadly, the only other lotion I currently own is Victoria's Secret shimmery sparkly glitter lotion in tasteful Eau D'Streetwalker.
[I do actually possess a small bottle of somewhat expensive face creme, but I'll be damned if I'm slathering half that tiny tube on MY LEGS.]
This lotion is bad. I think I got it a year or so ago for my birthday. It is possibly 10% lotion, 90% glitter. Its "girlie" scent somehow combines a flower garden with a sleazy club bathroom. And did I mention the glitter?
A couple weeks ago, in a rush, I shaved my legs with this before visiting the boyfriend. This was at a point where I was still pretty allergic to his moms cats (I adapt over time/exposure, just like a deadly bacteria!) and I waited outside for him to collect his stuff. When he came out and saw me in the sunlight, he said:
"Why are your legs sparkling? They hurt my eyes. You look like Ke$ha threw up on you."
Yes. One slather of glitter lotion and I turned into "Ke$ha Thighs."
Sometimes glitter in moderation is appropriate - say, your six-year-old sister's princess birthday or a Twilight fan fic (scratch that, Twilight is never okay). I do love most other VS products - the Lacie is probably the best underwear out there. But in this case: bad. Very, very bad.
When it comes down to prickly, fuzzy awkwardness or shiny, shimmery awkwardness, give me the glitter any day. Maybe my legs will blind passerbys tomorrow so I don't have to field stupid questions and poor attempts at flirting from freshmen orientation boys while on my lunch break.
