My first Body Shop review! Whooo! I've been leaving near this shop forever and it's the first time that I'd purchased something from this shop. Srsly, what was I thinking? They have such a nice range of product and their product quality are waaaaay better than the place where I work (which is Fruits&Passion). Plus, the prices are rather affordable compared to my work.
Okay whatever back to our subject. :)
So today I'll be reviewing two new products from The Body Shop : White Musk Breeze smooth satin body puree & the cooling chiffon body mist. First of all, I'm a total sucker for package. Like if I see some product
I'm the kind of girl who doesn't like over-scented things. When the smell is too strong, like perfums, it makes my nose itch and then I sneeze like a mad chick. I hate it when I walk across a person and she/he smells very strong (like wearing too much perfum here?). I mean, a spray of it to have this light/subtle scent is pleasant but when you're putting half of the bottle each time.. there's some issues. Maybe you loveee this perfum but maybe the guy/girl sitting next to you in the bus will be suffocating you know? That's why I don't wear perfum, I'm too afraid to put too much of it haha.
Now, the scent of the new white musk breeze is rather.. complex. I fell in love with it. I've always wanted something to smell fresh. Like a mix of citrus (I love lime/lemon scent & peppermint).But, I also like fruity scent! (Especially, peach watermelon and grapefuit) Until, now is was so hard to find something that I actually really like but thank god I found these products! At first, it smells very fresh, a mix of citrus. Then, it finishes off with some sweet light notes but still remains fresh scented. I was curious to know exactly what was it so I checked on their website. "Top notes: lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, plum, peach, leafy green, elemi Middle notes: rose, jasmine, lily of the valley, aquatic notes, ylang ylang, tagette, carnation Base notes: rich white musk, cedar wood, patchouli, touch of vanilla" -The Body Shop.
Whoaaa! What a mixture! I was really surprised by the amount of scent that was in there. Hahaha.
I bought the body puree (sounds like baby food) and the mist. I opted for the mist because it's lighter and more subtle than a perfume. But know I'm considering the perfume since I like the scent so much LOL! I spray it in the air, on top of my head every morning before going to school :).
The lotion isn't really a lotion. I'd say it's more like a transparent gel type. It's very very lightweight, isn't sticky at all and feels like water on your skin. It absorbs pretty fast and it leaves a nice subtle scent. It claims to be hydrating but I from my experience, it's not hydrating enough for winter but it would be perfect for summer. My mom told me that it leaved a cooling sensation. I was like whaaat? I didn't feel it! So maybe for some of you out there will feel it or not. Maybe my mom is just over-sensitive to air or something hahah.
Overall, I would recommend this line to all of you who likes fresh scented fragrance with a touch of flowers & fruits. I would leave the body puree for summer time but I would repurchase the other products for sureee! They even have the shower gel but I restrained myself because my mom brought back like 6 liters of shower gel from Toronto. (I know.. what the heck..)
Hope you liked the post!
