The Body Shop White Musk

My favorite scent in The Body Shop would have to go to white musk.  The unexplainable concoction of whatever ingredients just leaves me amused and bewildered.  Later did I know that originally musk scent is an odor from a gland of a male musk deer and I was like "what the hell".

Luckily, the one from The Body Shop is artificial and thus no animal was harm in obtaining the wonderful scent.

The Body Shop White Musk

December last year while I'm carelessly walking in the  mall, I decided to shop for anything and the first thing that came into my mind was the cocoa range from The Body Shop (I'm so obsessed with cocoa before for my skin).  It stressed me out then to know that it was out of stock and I'm ready to outpour a tantrum to whoever comes my way (luckily, I suppressed the feeling).  With a blurry mind, I stare blankly into a shelf full of assorted colored boxes and decided to get the violet one since I remember liking the scent of a violet bottled body wash.

White Musk Sumptuous Silk Shower Gel

And this shower gel started it all!  This one is more on the "woodsy" side and lathers well if used with a bath lily.  It does leave my skin subtly scented but fades away by the time I put a lotion on.

The Body Shop White Musk Voluptuous Velvet Body Creme

Both the lotion and the body creme lightly moisturizes my dry skin that most of the time I used both before I go to work rather than before I sleep which makes me sweat  a little more than when I normally used a korean body lotion.  The scent of this two are more on the flowery side.  Sorry The Body Shop but the White Musk Voluptous Velvet Body Creme is not velvety enough for me.

Got puzzled to find bottles of body spray and perfume when I opened the box when I got home because I'm not really a perfume or a cologne person and in short I buy things carelessly and I'm an impulsive buyer but I guess the below is a comfort in a bottle because I just love the unexplainable smell of it!

  2. Hey Arya! For me, TBS White Musk is a fragrance collection that I have for the past few years and will continue to have like forever! I love it! Especially the Voluptuous Velvety Body Cream and of course the EDT.

    In fact, me too did a review on this collection. Check it out if you have the time. :D

    By the way, did you know that TBS released a limited edition for this collection called White Musk Smokey Rose? If you're already know about it, do share what you think. I'm still thinking of getting it or not as you might have some thought on it considering you also have this original collection. Thanks!
