~Become a Powder Puff Girl!~
Having recently reviewed the Woods of Windsor Lavender fragrance it occurred to me that the Woods of Windsor range had many a lovely product that was not listed here on Dooyoo, yet were rather nice and worthy of reviewing. With that in mind I made a number of product suggestions to allow me to share my thoughts about the many products I have tried such as the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder.
The range of products including this one have had a little facelift recently and so are much more appealing to the eye when on display in store and I feel that the updated look is one that should allow a wider range of buyers to begin to purchase products from the range. The Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder is very nicely presented as it comes in an easy to use cardboard based container that holds a good amount of the product as well as a lovely little traditional style compact body dusting powder puff.
I have found the powder puffs that come with the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder are well made and easy to use with a soft touch white toned slightly fluffy appearance. The texture of the body puff is good as it allows you to pick up a good amount of the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder and apply it where needed. I like the fact that you are able to pick up as much or as little of the product on the body puff as this makes for easier application of the product to the skin.
I find that as the puff does not sit directly in the dusting powder, rather it sits on a perforated white plastic base that allows you to shake out a little or a lot of the product depending on your need, wants, mood etc, it is easy enough to apply the dusting powder as lightly or as generously as I want to. The outer casing which is made from durable cardboard type material is well made and when the lid is placed on top of the base there is a good seal which stops loose powder from seeping out.
~The texture and fragrance of the dusting powder~
I find that the texture of the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder is really nice as it is neither too light and fly away, nor is it too heavy or gritty. I have used cheaper and grittier body powders n the past and found them to be rather nasty causing a certain amount of rubbing when placed on the skin, luckily I have had no such issues with the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder as it glides on smoothly and softly when it is applied. The powder gives a sheer and silky feeling matt finish when on the skin and I find it works well when I use it.
Woods of Windsor say that the product is a 'softly scented powder that locks in moisture and leaves skin feeling silky smooth and delicately fragranced' and having used the dusting powder over many years I feel that they are right to say that about the product. Not only is the dusting powder soft, light and easy to apply it also combines Woods of Windsors 'signature classic Lavender scent' which I feel is really lovely. Within the blend of ingredients used to fragrance the powder there is of course lavender which combines with aromatic notes of patchouli, musk and camomile to give a pleasing freshly scented effect.
The most gorgeous thing about the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder is of course the lovely lavender scent that you get when using the product on the skin. I find that the dusting powder gives a lovely green and fresh lavender scent that it very pleasing to the nose and has a good balance to it, making it very easy to wear. Lavender can sometimes feel overly synthetic on the skin although in this case I feel the scent that is given off is much more natural than in some other similar products.
When using the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder I have applied it both with and without the matching body care products from the range and I find it works well when used as a layering scented powder. The product is very nice when used with the matching Lavender fragrance from the same range as it compliments it really well, giving a nicely coordinated feel. I have also found that when using the powder with other fragrances it can work well too, as many of my favorite fragrances seem to be lavender based. I have found that if I use a small amount of the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder then apply my fragrance, the two seem to compliment each other rather well.
~Price and rating~
In terms of rating the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder I feel it really is a lovely product that will last a very long time and as such it deserves a 4 star product rating. With the Woods of Windsor Lavender Body Dusting Powder coming in at £8.50 for a 100g tub which includes the powder and the powder puff I feel the value for money here is rather good. One thing that I have often done when the powder runs out is to top it up with the Woods of Windsor Talcum Powder that comes as a 100g product for £6.95. This is very handy as the actual powder puff will last for a long time and can be used time and time again. This means costs can be cut slightly and I found this very helpful, as it meant I only had to replace the whole product which came with the body puff every other purchase.
