The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair and Body Wash and The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder
Ying n Yang, Sharukh Khan and Kajol, Amitabh Bachhan and Rekha, Laloo Yadav and Rabri Devi, Wall-E and Eve, Poutmati and Eno Kumar, bonnie and clyde…, all the interesting things come in twos. :p Here is one more jodi that you should embrace whole-heartedly- The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair and Body Wash, and The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder.
I had written a brief review about the Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder in one of the post. The review ran something like this-
Hmm..I can vouch for one product mentioned over here that Rati gave to me and I have been using it ever since; it is the cleansing powder. It is so amazing that I will purchase it, no matter what the price, once this one which the PR sent is over. It is lot better than my regular soap; the powder is extremely soft without any grittiness. The moment you apply it on your face with water it becomes a gentle creamy paste. you can keep rubbing your face with it and it produces no irritation, stickiness, or grating feeling. It’s a soft butter-like paste. Once you wash it off, the skin on the face feels very youthful and springy. There is no tautness in the skin as I often feel after applying soap. The skin is soft and moisturized. It also looks a lot fairer than what it looks when I apply my normal soap.
Rati knows I am addicted to the product.

Now it would be hard to add to what I already wrote about The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder. But one of the IMBB readers asked if my perception of ‘fair skin’ was real or illusory. At that time I did not have an answer. Fortunately, I have it now, after using the product along with its spouse- The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair and Body Wash.
And I shall come to the answer later. First a brief introduction about myself-
Before coming to Delhi I grew up and spent all my childhood/ adolescent years in a very small town in eastern Uttar Pradesh. I had a middle class family (No money with me Jomol 🙁 ) and thereby the only thing I ever did for skin or body was using a soap or a shampoo. Sometimes the soap was as bad as a bar of Lifebuoy. We even had a single towel at home to be used by everyone. So all of you can imagine how aware we were about skin care or hair care or any stuff related to beauty. And I have not changed much throughout these years. My shampoo is still Head & Shoulders which I started using during my school days. And I never liked putting any stuff on my body except soap. In short, I am a philistine where skin care is concerned. Needless to add that my skin is quite good, acne free and smooth. Life is quite unfair that way. :devil:
I had tried many face washes in the past but they left me with such a ‘greasy’ feeling afterwards that I quit them immediately. Also, I looked darker than my normal wheatish complexion. My under eyes looked darker than usual and it felt that I was not coming out of a bath but after getting clubbed in a boxing match. I am fairly fairer than an average person around. And when I start looking so dark-skinned that you cannot notice me in a dark room until I smile, then there’s a problem. Naturally, I stuck to soap and a shampoo.
I recently added these two products to my bathing inventory on Rati’s insistence. The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder was sent to us by PR (and thereby I am expected to write a bad review about it because some people think that an ‘honest’ review is the one which is full of negatives) and I am extremely grateful to them for introducing this product. As I said before, the powder just melts into your palms once you apply a few drops of water and rub your palms together. It turns into a cream which you can apply on your face. And once you wash it off, the skin feels smoother, softer and fairer. Yes, I have no illusions about the fairness because its spouse- The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair and Body Wash- make me look a little darker.
Rati bought The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair and Body Wash because of the smell. It smells amazinggggg! If any of the guys is reading this, let me tell you something- every time I come out of the shower my wife keeps telling me that I smell effing good. And umm… you can never get used to hearing that everyday can you? 🙂
So ummm… on Rati’s insistence I started using The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair and Body Wash. The best way to use it is with a loofah. Wet your skin under shower or bath, add a small quantity on a loofah, and then start rubbing it on your body. it gives a good amount of foam if you keep dipping the loofah in a small tub of water, not so much that it washes away. Do not apply it on your neck or face. As I said earlier it made me look a little dark. So I used The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder on my neck and face. Also since The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder is a little costlier you would perhaps not want to use it all over your body. This is an amazing combination of two products. Both of them are equally amazing and they complement each other very well. One makes you smell amazing and the other makes your skin look quite smooth.
The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair and Body Wash: Rs. 595
The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Cleansing Powder: Rs 1195
I would leave the rating to you guys. As for me, any product which makes me receive compliements from my wife daily gets 6 out of 5. And yes, I would buy both these two again and again and again… 🙂
