Bathina "Soft to touch...hard to get" £26.50 - Link
I hope you have all been enjoying the lavish weather today, it feels like Summer is finally making its way here, that is probably until the Bank Holiday weekend next week. With that said one thing I love about the Summer is realising that I don't always want to hide my legs away, which means the quick rush for soft and silky skin. That is where I have found Benefit's Bathina body oil mist to be perfect.
The Bathina bath ranges was one of the first I recalled being released by Benefit when the company first launched. Since then Benefit have relaunched the Bathina range with the "Soft to Touch...Hard to Get' Body Oil Mist. Benefit's Soft to Touch...Hard to Get is described as a lightweight body oil that gives immediate hydration, a seductive sheen and a touch of tempting fragrance. Simply mist it on for silky, smooth skin that's impossible to resist. This mist also doubles as a seductive massage oil.
Now I will be honest in saying on first glimpses this was a product that didn't initially shout out as a must have for me. However when I was intrigued by the pretty bottle and then was sold on the first spritz onto my skin.
It's recommended to apply the oil mist directly onto freshly showered skin to lock in the moisture, all you need to do is lightly mist this all over and smooth into the skin for a gorgeous soft sheen. I do tend to apply this in a morning or on a night if I find that my skin needs a bit of a pick up and honestly works miracles, especially on freshly shaven skin. What I really love about this product is that it isn't greasy at all, it quickly sinks in leaving your skin feeling velvety smooth and glowing. I have noticed that when using this my skin also looks healthy and moisturised which is perfect for the summer.
I am in love with the scent of this mist, with a light mix of perfume and power - if that makes sense. The mist has a base of sweet almond, olive and avocado oil which helps to keep your skin moisturised with a hint of Jasmine. I find that the scent isn't overpowering but you can smell it on the skin if I have applied it in a morning before work.
I can't not comment on the gorgeous packaging, it looks perfect on my vanity dresser. Best of all the bottle is plastic so if you suffer from butter fingers like me you won't have to worry about dropping it and the bottle breaking. I adore the vintage boudoir inspired design, and its safe to say it's a typical Benefit product in terms of its unique packaging.
Overall this nourishing body oil mist is perfect for nourishing your skin and added a healthy sheen. However with saying that it's £26.50 tag means that it's more of a treat than a necessity, and would be perfect for times where you need a pamper or a treat.
