The Body Shop: White Musk Libertine Body Wash

  Recently I signed up to the Body Shop's "Love Your Body" card, which alongside a host of other discounts also gave away a free gift - in my case, this White Musk Libertine body wash!

  I wasn't initially sure how I felt about this product. It was free, so of course I was going to use it, and I figured it would be a good way to sample their shower products as otherwise I would probably never actually try them - Lush have pretty much dominated my bathroom for quite some time now and it was always going to be hard work for another product to join them!

  However, I've been really pleasantly surprised with this product so far. As mentioned, I'm a big lover of Lush, and therefore it's probably no surprise for you to hear that I absolutely love really highly scented feminine products. Snow Fairy and Rose Jam are my favourite shower gels by far and both of them have the sort of scents that are so girly and strong that my neighbor can probably tell whenever I pop open a bottle! The scent to Libertine is nowhere near as strong and it's much more gender neutral - however, I've began to find that I actually quite like it! Different scents for different purposes and all that, but I've been surprised to discover that this scent actually works really well  for my day to day life - particularly for when I'm going to work, this works great in the morning as it's nowhere near as overpowering as my choices tend to be but the subtle scents still sneak through enough to get compliments on it.

  A little goes a long way with this bottle and it's easy to completely clean yourself over with just a little bit of product. It's really foamy and feels great and silky smooth on your skin.

  Overall, I've surprised myself by being really happy with this product, and it's made me excited to try some of the Body Shop's other shower products when I've finished this bottle! It's by no means replaced my Lush love, but it is great to have a more subtle scent that though wouldn't have been my favourite in the store actually works really well with me.

  This product is available for £6.50 from The Body Shop - you can buy it in store, online here, or if you're lucky you may be able to get it the same way I did, by signing up for their card (£5!).

  What do you think of the Libertine scent? Any Body Shop shower gel favourites?

  1. I really want to try out this range, sprayed the mist in-store and it's gorgeous! And I love their shower gels, they're not too overwhelming and lather nicely so I will definitely be giving this a go.

    If you like libertine then I highly recommend Smoky Rose by the way! x

    1. Ooh, thanks for the recommendation! I'm planning on going there this weekend, I want to try out the blueberry stuff and I also need a new face cleanser - so I'll have a smell of it then!

    1. I love it as a shower gel - I probably wouldn't wear it in body mist format but it's such a nice every day one for me.
