Hi gorgeous ladies,
I am so thrilled to be here on IMBB that I can’t even come close to describing the feeling. Not only because, like you all, I too just love learning about all that is related to beauty, fashion and makeup, but also because I can share my delightful (or not-so-delightful :P) experiences with you. Sharing is caring as they say and what better platform to share some great products and personal experiences. Now, as this is my first review on IMBB, I’d like to start with a big hearty thanks to the IMBB team and all you lovely people who have shared the same on this platform and benefited me tremendously in more ways than I can fathom. So without further ado, I’m going to share my first review on a Bath and Body Works product. Now, I do know that a lot of you have used Bath and Body Works products and can vouch that their goods are to die for. They smell absolutely divine and I’m a sucker for anything that smells heavenly, in fact, so heavenly that you get transported to another realm. During my last visit to a store in the USA, I picked up a dozen of their body mists (yes ladies, a dozen!! I’m guilty as charged of surrendering myself to all that is beautiful).
So amongst the different mists that I selected, one of my favourites is the Be Enchanted Shimmer Mist that I stumbled across from their Signature Collection. Whatever your age, most of us can admit that we do crave for a bit of shimmer here and there. The best thing about this mist is that not only does it smell gorgeous but it has fine glitter particles in it. We don’t want to end up looking like a Christmas tree for heaven’s sake, but this is subtle yet glamorous and perfect for those evenings out when you need a dose of iridescence to brighten up your mood or just look darn sexy. All that glitters is definitely gold!
$14.00 for 236 ml.
Key Fragrance notes:
Top Notes: Mouthwatering Citrus, Iced Pomegranate, Chilled Wildberries, Crystallized Passionfruit.
Mid Notes: Sheer Honeysuckle, Floral Frosted Bouquet, Sugared Violet, Dew fruit, Asian Pear.
Dry Notes: Whipped Vanilla, Creamy Musk, Sandalwood.
This mist comes in a transparent plastic spray bottle so you can see the sparkly goodness inside. The spray nozzle is user friendly and overall the packaging it quite aesthetic particularly if you love fragrance bottles as much as the fragrance themselves. I know I sure do! It’s quite a big bottle so not the ideal situation to carry it all day in your purse whilst travelling or out and about. However, as this is a shimmer mist, and you don’t want to keep applying glitter all over you, just spritz before leaving the house and you are done.
My Experience with Bath and Body Works Be Enchanted Shimmer Mist:
As I love fresh fruity fragrances, this is a winner for me hands down. Longevity wise, I think this is pretty impressive for a mist as normally mists don’t last long especially when compared to an eau de toilette or an eau de parfum, but this lingers on your body. I have even noticed the smell on me the next morning too, so go figure! As this fragrance settles down, you can notice the floral and musky notes come through, so it’s perfect for winters too. Each skin has a different reaction to fragrances and if fruity is not your cup of tea, you won’t be disappointed as the top notes are mild and pleasing, especially amalgamated with vanilla and musk. The name perfectly describes this mist as it is truly enchanting and gets noticed.
I prefer using this not only behind my ears and inner wrists but also on my arms if I’m wearing a sleeveless or strappy outfit and on my décolletage. Best to use this straight after you have showered and have moisturized yourself with a non-scented lotion (you don’t want to mix up scents here if you use a strong lotion like cocoa butter etc. so opt for a non-scented one). If you have the Be Enchanted body lotion, then by all means please smother that on first and then this mist, as layering the same fragrance in different textures increases longevity.
The shimmer makes my skin glow and sparkle in the light and adds that extra oomph especially if you are heading for an evening party. You don’t have to worry about having glitter all over you and look like a shiny disco ball. Trust me, the glitter particles are very fine and will give you a subtle and chic sparkle. For me, it’s an all-in-one scent; smells absolutely ravishing, makes your skin glisten and contains aloe vera that nourishes the skin. What more could you ask for in a mist!
