The Body Shop Black Musk EDP Review

March 1, 2016
The Body Shop Black Musk4

The Body Shop Black Musk might sound like a super dark concussion of ingredients that might be a little too powerful for a woman’s application but it is actually a balanced blend of fruity and sweet ingredients. This fragrance is not at all dark, but has a powerful spirit that definitely stands out amongst the array of musk based EDPs that are available in the market. The newest fragrance addition to The Body Shop’s huge range of fragrances is the ‘Black Musk’ range that comes in perfume, EDT and EDP formula. When I first lay my hands on this bottle of goth, I was prepared to whiff overpowering tones of musk with faint hints of vanilla. But to my surprise, the formula is a pleasing balance of black vanilla with hints of musk with the sweet notes of a pear. Prolly this is the reason why it has been introduced as being ‘naughty & nice’ as it tends to blend in the powerful base notes with feminine top notes. The Packaging Honestly, I am quite happy with its packaging. Especially the EDP, that comes in a compact black bottle which is light, strong and easy to apply. The entire black with violet colour scheme of the packaging stands out amongst other delicately packed fragrance bottles by The Body Shop. It is definitely travel friendly and fits in even in my hand bag without the fear of spoiling the contents upon uncapping. The Usage I spray the EDP behind my ears and on my front neckline. The fragrance lasts for a good 4-5 hours with all the notes settling in within a span of 30-40 minutes. About the Black Musk Range Become brazenly seduced by the dual scent persona of Black Musk Fragrance. The Body Shop’s Black Musk Fragrance is the darkest and …

Keeping the skin (face to be precise) cleansed and hydrated is a must for every girl. As much a tedious task it might look, the end results are long lasting. Take it this way – If you follow a cleansing-toning-moisturizing regime twice a day, your skin aging process will postpone for a good while. After trying out Za True White Day Cream for the moisturizing part, it’s time to look into the former part of the regime – Cleansing. About Za True White Cleansing Foam : This whitening cleansing foam removes melanin contained excess surface skin cells and imparts moisturized translucent skin. Actions 1. Cleansing granules roll gently over skin to remove excess surface skin cells and impurities around pores. – Vitamin C granules 2. Moisturizes skin and imparts smooth and translucent skin. – SPA Ingredients. 3. Removes light makeup.  Claims Leaves the skin feeling refreshed. Imparts luminous, translucent and moisturized skin. My Experience Staying away from ‘fairness products’, I was quite impressed by the otherwise moisturizing features of Za True White Day Cream. So trying out their True White Cleansing Foam turned out to be an obvious thing. Can’t really vouch for the ‘translucent’ effect of this one, but a single application alone provides a clean and fresh looking skin. Apt for those with an oily skin, the foam definitely takes care of removing impurities (and makeup) as it claims to be. Likes Consistency of the foam. Vitamin C granules that are not harsh on the skin. Mild sweet fragrance. Fresh and hydrated skin. Easy to handle packaging. Lasts for a good 5-6 hours. Dislikes Since I have a combination skin, my cheekbones did feel a mild stretch post application. Still looking forward to experience the ‘translucent effect’. 8 applications so far. Rating Value for Money : 4.7/5 Quality …
