Review // The Body Shop Moringa Body Mist

Believe it or not, this is a product my Mother and I fought over. Someone gave it to her, she decided she didn't like it so gave it to me. Then she changed her mind. You can't take back a gift, right? I can't begin to explain to you how good this product smells. I have to be honest and say I don't go to The Body Shop too often. Hardly ever, actually. I have numerous back-ups of the skincare products I use so I don't have a reason to go in there. Had I realised they sold scents then I probably would have rushed back a hell of a lot sooner.

Body Mists aren't something I usually use as I'm more of a perfume gal. The one thing that bothers me about perfume is that it is usually expensive and, do I want to wear my Marc Jacobs to walk the dog? Probably not. So finding a cheaper yet still long wearing scent has been on my agenda for a while. Luckily, I have found it.

What The Body Shop say about their Moringa Body Mist:
"Our Moringa takes on a fresh new form. Spray this light scented body mist all over your body for a gentle burst of delicate florals. It's irresistible. White floral fragrance, light and fresh, use all over body, contains moringa extract."

When I first smelt it, I expected it to be sickly sweet and really overpowering. In fact, it couldn't be further from that. It is beautifully fresh and light which is neither heavy or sweet. I have never smelt anything like it before so I have nothing to compare it to but it is wonderfully fresh and perfect for summer. I also found it to last a really long time. Usually when I apply perfume or other body sprays I can't smell it for longer than a couple of hours but with this Body Mist I find that I can smell it all day long. Towards the end of the day it wears off slightly but in my eyes, it works just as well, if not better than perfume so I don't have any complaints!

I wish I could explain the scent to you but it smells so good and so unique, I literally have nothing to compare it to. It's a fresh and light scent, not sweet or overpowering at all, which lasts a while and lingers on the skin and clothing. At £7.50 for 100ml, I can't praise the Moringa Body Mist enough. In my eyes it works just as well as a perfume for a really affordable price. Best of all, The Body Shop sells 10 other scents so chances are, if this one doesn't take your fancy then you will definitely find one to suit you.

  1. I love Body Shop mists for just casual wear - they're simple, inexpensive and fresh. I have a pink grapefruit one that's like liquid happiness to me!
