This is my very first review on IMBB, I have been stalking this website for over 2 years now 😀 Being a college student, my budget constraints are too tight! 😛 I indulge in a little shopping here and there, but I never fail to read reviews on IMBB prior to buying anything. So, my first review will have to be a product from The Body Shop because I absolutely love it all and I literally save money to buy stuff from there.
Name of Product:
The Body Shop Moringa Eau De Toilette.
Rs. 795 for 30 ml (It was a birthday gift from my Best friend, so I didn’t have to pay for it 😛 :P)
With Community Fair Trade essence from sugarcane.

- Light and wearable.
- Delicate floral scent.

My Experience with The Body Shop Moringa Eau De Toilette:
Well, the feeling I get after using this is the same as the one I got when I was gifted with this. 😀 Friends always know what you want, and when they get that exact same thing, then it is the cloud 9 feeling that follows! Speaking of the packaging, it comes in a cute glass bottle, looks lightly tinted in yellow. It is easy to hold, spray, flaunt click pictures with 😛
This fragrance is very fruity and sugary. It’s almost like smelling a concoction of sugar, mogra and sugarcane. It might be a little strong if you use too much. Also, I don’t find it right to wear it on western outfits like the ones I wear to college. It’s more of something you can pull off with an Indian attire. The hidden mogra smell constantly reminds me of festivals 😛 It stays on like forever. If it’s on your clothes, it will stay for 2-3 days if you don’t wash it 😛 It caused no irritation whatsoever on my skin. It’s the kind of fragrance your mom will also like (my mom absolutely hates urban/musk type fragrances).
On applying this, you feel very refreshed, brings a big smile to your face. This applies only if you love summery and sweet fragrances, not sure if it has anything to do with my love for sweets. The best part is if you use in correct quantity, it is not at all over powering, it is subtle and people will definitely notice it.
Pros of The Body Shop Moringa Eau De Toilette:
- Summery fruity smell.
- Only for flowery scent lovers, others will hate it.
- Not overpowering.
- Best worn with Indian wear.
- Good staying power.
- Doesn’t irritate skin.
- Is a head turner 😛
Cons of The Body Shop Moringa Eau De Toilette:
- Too much of the scent will give a headache and I think that is the case with every fragrance.
I will give it a 4.5/5
Also, I won’t try it again, will go for other fragrances.
I hope you all liked the post, I am more than happy to be a part of IMBB family. 😀
