White musk from The Body Shop has been a favourite of mine for many years. Although not all that cheap anymore it is still a lot cheaper than designer perfumes and makes for a great daily scent. One of the best ways to wear it is by layering all the white musk products in the range which will leave you smelling lovely all day long.
The voluptuous velvet body crème costs £12 and comes in a 200ml tub similar to those that body butters come in. The crème is unlike body butter though in that it isn't as solid and has a much creamier look and feel to it.
The crème is heavily scented and you can smell it as soon as you unscrew the lid. It smells slightly less musky than the perfume and has a sweeter scent to it but when used in combination with the other white musk products it really helps to scent my skin fabulously for the whole day and actually intensifies the smell of the musk.
As a moisturiser the crème is amazing and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and conditioned. It is quite thick so I only need a little otherwise it can feel too heavy on my skin and a little greasy. I do find that it takes a little time to be absorbed properly but when I have rubbed it in completely the greasiness goes away and instead I am left with a lovely silky feeling instead with no tacky sticky feeling.
Apparently this crème also contains lily, rose, vanilla and iris but I struggle to notice these scents and they certainly don't overpower the musk. As I mentioned it is a little sweeter and less intense than the perfume but this is exactly what I would want from a body moisturiser so for me this is a good thing.
I do think that £12 is quite expensive for a body moisturiser but The body Shop uses such good ingredients and makes such good products that it is worth it. The tub lasts me for absolutely ages and leaves my skin feeling and looking lovely.
