“ Brand: Wilkinson / Spray / Type: Body Spray / Suitable for: Body / What it does: Energises „
I have been smoking quite a bit lately and because I think it's a horrible habit I like to have a nice body spray in my bag to try and mask the smell. Also, when I'm at work I am not really able to wear very strong scents so a nice light body spray is perfect for refreshing mid way during my shift and ensuring I always look and smell clean and fresh at all times.
When browsing in Wilkinsons I spotted that they had a nice range of body sprays which are regularly 49p each or 2 for 87p and I have now tried quite a few from the range and for the most part I have been very happy with the quality of the products and the range of scents available. It's fantastic to save a few pennies by buying more than one of something and every single time I've gone to Wilkinsons I have always found these to be on the special offer so I don't worry about buying too many at one time.
This body spray is in a long, thin can and looks nice and feminine. It has a light pink bottle with a pink and yellow mixed coloured heart. The packaging carries all the usual safety information, ingredients etc and there is a purple lid on the top to protect it from spraying when in my handbag which is where these can usually be found. The packaging does look quite nice and it's one of the best decorated ones in the range so this is what attracted me to trying this today and I didn't even bother to have a little spray before I made my selection.
This works in the same way as any spray just press it down and spray is released. I usually just apply it either all over my body before dressing or a light spray on my clothes while at work or needing a freshening up. The scent is quite light and has floral tones to it without being too heady or overpowering. The first thing I thought of when I smelled this is that it reminds me of my Mum as she always smells like nice perfume or soap and I was really glad with my selection. The scent is strong enough to last for quite a few hours and I have found this to be one of the more long lasting scents out of the entire range and I've tried most of them so I'm quite well informed! This is a nice feminine scent and is perfectly suited to someone of my age because it's not too floral but it carries just enough to have a nice womanly scent to it that's enough that I can detect it but not so strong that every around me is choking on the scent.
I have found all of the body sprays in the range to be quite long lasting and this one is lasting me for around 3 or 4 hours before I can't really detect it on my clothes anymore. I love the scent to this one and the way that it reminds me of my Mum is quite comforting to me as well. The quality of the product is very reasonable for the fantastic price paid and I will have no qualms continuing to use these Wilkinsons body sprays in the future.
The scent lasts the perfect amount of time for me that if I'm working a short shift just one use is enough to keep me smelling fragrant throughout the day and give me something nice to smell while I'm sitting at work. I used to buy the odd expensive body spray and never find them to be very long lasting so I'm very pleased with the quality overall.
When it comes to carrying around body sprays with me I'm such a fanatic! I'm a bit of a clean freak and I like feeling and smelling fresh at all times. I know the reason for this obsession is because I am in out of hospital, having check ups etc as I have eating disorder and a spine condition and I always carry around with me wet wipes and stuff for on the go cleaning up!
I buy alot of brand makes of body sprays such as my favourite So...? one's, Impulse and Charlie etc but at the rate I get through a can it doesn't exactly work out economical for me which is why occasionally I will buy cheaper one's just to slow me down a little in the spending sakes! Some that I do like are in Wilkinson's and usually priced at 49p a can though sometimes they are on offer 3 for a £1 or buy one get half price etc therefore working out a heck of a lot cheaper than my usual offerings! I am currently working through the range of fragrances offered by Wilkinson's and it's been a mixed bag of results (please read my other reviews if interested) but on the whole I've found them to be nicely fragranced, long lasting and excellent value for money.
75ml long cylinder pink can with a white push button sprayer to the top of if and covered by a darker pink almost see-through push on/off lid. On the front in pink and black writing I'm told it is from the Quality Wilko Brand, 'Energising' which is a 'zesty, vibrant body spray' and there is a heart drawn on there. On the back of the can I am told a bit about the product, directions for use, ingredients are listed, cautions are given, a cash back guarantee and contact details for Wilkinson's are given, and finally the recycle symbol and size are stated along with the bar-code. It's a a nice enough girly can but you can tell instantly it's a cheap can really but sturdy and functional it is.
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Can....
Wilko Body Spray an enticing fragrance, to give you lasting freshness. Spray freely all over body.
Directions For Use....
Shake can well. Hold can 15cm away from body and spray.
My Experience Using It....
Well personally I spray it onto a clean body of course fresh out of the bath or shower and occasionally have a quick spray as I mentioned earlier to freshen up with. It comes out as a clear liquid, not soaking wet and but moist and I spray it freely over myself and it dries quick cos there is nothing to dry really. Incredibly easy to use from any angle it's simple and fuss free to apply it. Basically it's a spray and go product as it doesn't leave any residue on the body and is none sticky or irritating to skin.
Fragrance wise well it's a mix of fruity and floral notes to my nostrils. It's none distinctive in it's smell but it is sweet and womanly with a hint of musk to it. It's really well blended and smooth and not an in your face fragrance that takes over smell wise from anything else you may be wearing but it is apparent and when you've you've used it the smell delicately lingers for a good couple of hours on the skin easily.
Energising? No not really. I guess it has a zing about it in the way of a slight zesty tone that pops the smells of whatever is floral in it a bit and it is vibrant and fresh but no it doesn't give your body a wake up call or anything like that!
Simply it is a very nice, economical buy and great for on the go freshen ups! I've found it completely none irritating on my skin and safe to gently spritz on my clothes and when I've had enough of it on my body (or clothes) it washes off easily enough. As I stated earlier though smell wise it disappears from my skin after a couple of hours anyway!
Lots of fragrances are available and these of course are only available from Wilkinson stores. Recommended from me but do test the fragrances out first!
