This is something that I don’t buy very often as I own the shower gel which I prefer to use that the cleansing bar but I have bought it before and it is good just not as practical as the shower gel which is the only reason that I don’t buy it more often.
It is a cleansing bar which resembles a bar of soap even though it doesn’t contain soap so it is much better and less drying for your skin. In fact it is actually incredibly moisturising and creamy to use and makes skin soft and silky and will help with any dry skin conditions.
It actually feels incredibly luxurious and indulgent to use and it smells gorgeous. White Musk isn’t a fragrance that I wear every day as I usually like something more floral or fruity but sometimes I am in the mood for something a bit more sensual and this is when I turn to White Musk as I think it is very sexy smelling.
The bar gives a fabulous lather and the scent of the White Musk really starts to come off the bar when you foam it up. It scents my skin nicely and smells quite strongly for a bar of soap.
The only reason that I personally prefer the shower gel is only because of the fact that it is less messy and lasts me longer. Because this is a solid bar it starts to melt as soon as it comes in contact with water and because I don’t use it every day it ends up just going to waste.
If you are going to use it all the time then this would be a great alternative to the shower gel as it is a lot cheaper and just as kind to skin. It only costs £3 and I think that because it is so nice and highly fragranced it is worth every penny.
Soap is not something which I normally would use because I find it too drying on my skin and I just prefer to use a liquid wash such as a shower gel. My big exception to this rule is with the Body Shop cleansing bar. Although they also do a shower gel in the white musk fragrance the soap is a lot cheaper and lasts for the same amount of time.
The soap weighs 100g and is quite a hefty slice of soap for the £3 purchase price. I call is soap but it is actually soap free though I did not realise this for a long time when I was buying it but perhaps I should have realised as it is nowhere near as drying as normal soap and actually leaves my skin feeling soft and if not exactly moisturised it also doesn't leave it feeling dry and tight like normal soap does.
This is really creamy and like a lot of the other products in the white musk range this has a real feeling of luxury to it as it is so rich and creamy and it certainly feels nicer than a £3 slab of 'soap' should on my skin. It lathers up in to a rich creamy froth and feels lovely and silky on my skin.
The only reason that I can think of this being so cheap in comparison to the rest of the range is that the scent of this is a little weaker than the rest of the products. It still has that same gorgeous musk smell but it is just a little lighter and less intense than the other products in the range.
Because it is so much cheaper than the other products in the white musk range I don't mind the fact that it is a little less intense but I do think this is one that can't really be enjoyed on its own as much. With the other products because they are all quite strong you could easily just use them on their own and enjoy the fragrance but with this one it really works better when it is combined with something else from the range be it the moisturiser or the talc or even use this and then a couple of squirts of the perfume.
It is a lovely cleansing bar and although I wish it was a little bit stronger smelling it still smells lovely and is great value especially as it feels so nice to use. It also lasts for ages as long as you remember not to leave it lying in the water to melt away.
