The Product, 'White Musk Sensual Body Powder' ~ 'Sitting On A Powder Keg'!
This gorgeous talc comes in a beautiful shimmering lilac cylinder tub. The renowned 'Body shop' symbol precedes the bold lettering noting the contents of this lovely cosmetic. The product contains 100g of fragrant particles. With a co-ordinating mauve twist top lid, the product gives a luxurious impression even before the contents are revealed. The lid has two protruding small ledges to promote easy turning and with six ample holes, the powder can run freely when shaken.
The Body shop gives their product description for this talc as 'A light body powder that absorbs excess moisture on the skin to leave it smooth, dry and subtly scented with the classic soft and floral White Musk(®) fragrance', so does it live up to its hype?
My Usage Experience ~ 'Powder Room'!
I receive this attractive product as a gift from my daughter. I was thrilled to receive the talc as I don't generally purchase such luxuries for myself.
I love to apply the powder after a shower if I'm not applying body lotion. Ensuring my skin is completely dry; I sit on my bed and administer the powder liberally over my body, neck down. Upon first shaking the tub, loosening any settled grains, a most wonderful scent is released through the lid's openings. By sprinkling a light film of powder whilst sitting on my sheets, means that when I retire to bed that night, I will be welcomed by the most inviting aromatic fragrance as the residue of talc had fallen onto the bedding when applying the product beforehand. Who doesn't like the smell of fresh perfumed sheets? :~)
The initial notes that come to mind when first applying the talcum is the exotic aroma of musk, with undertones of vanilla and light scented rose. After a brief time the bouquet settles to fragrant amber, touch of lily and rose but still predominantly spicy musk.
The light film of fragrant dusty crumbs fall like a loose snow shower and feels so velvety smooth against my skin. That softness remains throughout the day but the subtle essence of the perfumed powder is fairly undetectable unless I inhale the scent close to my skin. When layered with other musk fragrant cosmetics, like perfume or body sprays, this can enhance those undertones.
This isn't a shimmery powder, but if you do use a glimmering talc, I find the best place to use this type of talcum is across my shoulders and collar bones. Not only is it very effective, giving an attractive glistening to the skin but when applied around the chest and neck areas tends to hold the balm more effectively due to one's natural body heat.
There are many uses for older or unused powders. I have a friend that uses dry shampoo between washes. These products can be fairly expensive, so by simply sprinkling a small amount of talc in the palms of your hands, ensuring any excess is discarded, gently rub through the strands of the hair will tone down any greasy parts that give an unappealing look! And of course, if the talc is scented, the better!
Exercise routines will benefit too. A good dusting over with powder will help to prevent heat rash, friction burns and unwanted odour until shower time!
A safe way to discourage pest like ants is to pepper their trail with talcum powder. The ants will not be amused and scatter, deterring their return for quite a while!
Would I recommend? ~ Off to 'Powder My Nose'! :~)
Absolutely! This is a little taste of luxury that won't cost the earth, quite literally! And The Body shop is against animal testing too! There's a twenty-four month shelf life on this product which adds to its appeal. As long as the product is kept in a cool dry place with the lid closed, the contents will remain as new.
