I have become obsessed with body mists recently, especially floral and fruity ones. Since we don’t have Bath and body works or Victorias secret here in Australia, my choice is limited. I try not to shop from body shop much because the prices are much higher compared to some other countries. I try to pick TBS products when I travel or ask friends to get them for me. However the new body mist range is quite tempting for me. When I went in and got the Moringa one first, some of the other variants were out of stock. They however had introduced eight variants even Satsuma which was an all time favorite of TBS.They even had chocomania as a mist, which was quite surprising as the chocomania was a limited edition range. I had a small gift pack from TBS which I received as a gift from a friend during Christmas; I have started using them only recently. It was a travel size strawberry body wash and body butter.Im liking them so much and the soft fragrance which it leaves behind, I decided to go in and get the strawberry body mist as well. Strawberry is quite a summer fragrance but I’m not into musk or any other winterish fragrances so I started using this right away without waiting for summer. Another reason is that unlike EDTs, with body mists and solid perfumes it’s all about “layering, layering and layering”

My Experience with The Body Shop Strawberry Body Mist
The package is identical to the moringa body mist and comes in a sturdy glass bottle which obviously is heavier than the older body mists from TBS which used to come in plastic bottles. The labelling is quite simple but pretty. The spray comes out as a fine mist and can be easily rubbed in to skin or just left as it is .The fragrance is a beautiful strawberry scent which totally uplifts my winter days.Im upset that I only recently discovered the power of body mists. I should have used fruity/floral body mists in previous winters. Some would classify this as a total summery scent. But for me, this is a scent to be used throughout the year. The good thing about these mists (both Moringa and strawberry) have the power to be worn alone as they just don’t “disappear” like cheap body sprays but layering is always the best option to make them last all day. The fragrance is the iconic TBS strawberry scent –fresh and sweet without being OTT.However, this mist has it more strongly than the body wash and body butter. This wouldn’t make those around you think “wow strawberries” but would rather make them think “what was that nice smell?” ☺
A few sprays would easily last four hours but if layered it lasts more than half a day and can be topped up throughout.

Will I repurchase this?
I would like to try more, but I might only buy body shop products when I travel because of the price.
