~Dusting can be fun with True Rose from Woods of Windsor~
Amongst the Woods of Windsor range of products that I have used is the lovely True Rose Body Dusting Powder that uses elements from the blend of ingredients within the matching True Rose fragrance and packs them all into a wonderfully decadent feeling, all over scented body powder that is a pleasure to use. Not only does the lovely soft dusting powder smell divine on the skin, it also has a light airy texture that is fine enough so as not to cause any rubbing or rashes when it is on the body.
Woods of Windsor say that this is a 'softly scented powder that locks in moisture and leaves skin feeling silky smooth and delicately fragranced' and I have to agree with that statement, as I feel this is a very good way to describe a lovely product that in my experience does just that. Woods of Windsor go on to say that the very pretty True Rose fragrance used in the powder has a natural smelling rose petal scent but also has hints of 'crisp green violet leaves, rose otto and warm damask rose'. I feel this gives the dusting powder a lovely sweet and honeyed yet slightly fruity and spiced rose petal scent that is soft and gentle on the skin
~Scent, presentation and ease of use~
I find that the Woods of Windsor True Rose Body Dusting Powder is well presented, with an updated look that uses vibrant colouring and good quality packing. I feel Woods of Windsor have produced a durable and easy to use cardboard based container in which to store the beautiful dusting powder, that not only functions well - it also looks very pretty at the same time. I like the way that the theme of the product matches in well with other items from the same range, as this gives a nicely coordinated look if giving the Woods of Windsor True Rose Body Dusting Powder as a gift alongside other items from the range.
The Woods of Windsor True Rose Body Dusting Powder container holds a good amount of dusting powder within it and has been made with ease of use in mind. I find that the lid of the container sits well when placed on top of the base (which contains the dusting powder) and once in place it creates a good seal that doesn't seem to allow powder to escape. Inside the container the gorgeous soft and fluffy white toned body puff is not left drowning in a sea of fragranced powder getting overly coated in too much of it, as it sits on a raised perforated top that allows you to shake out as much or as little of the powder as you need or want to use.
~True Rose or synthetic copy?~
I feel that the Woods of Windsor True Rose Body Dusting Powder has a nice balance to it that gives off a soft rose scented fragrance with a hint of other elements. The same sweetly spiced lychee and green leaf scent that is used in the matching True Rose fragranced EDT gives the scented powder a similar feel. The lovely rose oils used in the product have that same warm and enveloping honeyed tone to them that is so very nice and they give the powder a really light and silky rose petal fragranced feel. Having used the dusting powder with the fragranced EDT to layer up the scented effect, I have found that the two compliment each other well to give a luxury feel that you want from such a product.
Both the scented aspect and the texture of the Woods of Windsor True Rose Body Dusting Powder are good and the powder seems to glide onto the skin with ease leaving it softly scented and silky smooth. As you get 100g of the product in each container it will last for a very long time even if you use it daily and I have found that I only need to buy a cheaper stand alone Woods of Windsor True Rose Talcum Powder to top it back up, as the boy puff is well made and will last for some time before it needs replacing. Of course if you are feeling really naughty you could just buy a whole new tub complete with a new body puff if wanted, as when new the body puff is really soft and light and glides over the skin rather well.
~ Price and rating~
I feel that the Woods of Windsor True Rose Body Dusting Powder is an easy to use well made product that I have enjoyed using. Not only does it last well even with daily use as a little goes a long way, I find it has a lovely soft rose petal scent, combined with a very smooth and silky dusting powder that glides onto the body easily when using the body puff provided. As each little tub of powder has 100g of the product inside it, it lasts for ages before it needs topping up even if you use it every day and I feel that is a bonus.
At the moment the product can be bought in a number of high street stores and is also sold at Harrods and Liberty, as well as in the Woods of Windsor flagship store which stands in the shadow of Windsor Castle. It can also be bought online and costs £8.50 for the dusting powder including the body puff, which may seem a little high for an every day product, although you do need to remember that a little goes a long way with this so you won't have to replace it for a long time.
The stand alone True Rose Talc comes in its own container and sells for £6.95 per 100g, this means that a small saving can be had if your body puff seems in good shape, as I have found that the original container is refillable with a little effort. Over all I feel that this is a very nice product that gives a sense of luxury to an every day product that many women like to use and as such I feel it ought to get a 4 star product rating. I have deducted just 1 star as the price may put the product out of reach of some buyers, although in this instance I feel you do get what you pay for.
