I am not a lot into perfumes or perfume oils, I rely on the deodorants and the body lotions I use for all the fragrance my body needs. I got this Strawberry Body Mist from The Body Shop last summer, to be honest I used it a few times but then after summer I completely forgot about it. I actually discovered it again this summer and have been using it for a few months now.
About The Looks!
The body mist comes in a clear or transparent round glass bottle with a spray nozzle, just like you get in perfumes and a silver cap. The bottle has a red translucent paper which has the name of the brand and the product printed. It also has a small sticky post which has the price, quantity, shelf life, etc printed. The packaging is quite simple nothing very amazing or complex about it. The good part is the spray nozzle however, you have to be careful while travelling since its a glass bottle.

What do I think about this body mist!
The liquid is absolutely clear, just like water in both looks and consistency. One can’t make out if its water or the body mist. Well talking about its scent, its obviously strawberry. But its pretty sweet and strong. It really smells great! 3-4 sprays on the upper body are enough to give you an amazing scented feel. Since its a body mist its not very concentrated like a perfume is and a spray more will do no harm. After spraying, the mist will evaporate in a few seconds, leaving just the fragrance behind, so yes, it won’t feel wet at all for a long time.
The scent stays on the body for almost 3-4 hours, depending on your activity levels and the weather too. If you sweat too much, then it will be gone after some time. However, it will stay on your clothes the whole day or until you wash them! Its amazing!! I really love the way my clothes smell after I take them off at the end of the day. Its a great option for a person who wants a perfume like fragrance but without shelling too much money out of their pockets. The quantity is awesome and it will last you a year may be, depending upon how frequently you use it and how much. But it surely will last a long time.
- Remember to spray the mist from at least 6 – 8 inches away from your body or clothes, so that it spreads evenly. As a closer spray will result in concentrated patch and that would not lead to a very strong scent from that area. It might be uncomfortable for many.
- If you have body odor, avoid using it around the arm pits / underarms, just focus on the front part and neck. Also, do not use the same clothes again as the combination of the scent and the body odor would not be good.
I really like the strawberry body mist and after I am done with this or may be earlier I would certainly like to try the other mists with some floral scents. It is a great option for a person like me who is not much in to perfumes but does find the body mist handy! Its really a good product and I certainly recommend to everyone! If you don’t like the strawberry scent, you may want to try the other ones, hope you will like them! I will do that too!!
