MARCIA IS EATING UP STRAWBERRY PEAR BODY MOUSSE
If you are a follower of Beauty Info Zone you know that I don’t rave about fragranced items very often. I stopped using them a long, long time ago to help ward off migraines. I’m starting to appreciate certain products but it still takes a lot to impress me. I’m impressed with my Strawberry Pear Body Mousse though.
The description of the body mousses tells us that these are whipped so you’d expect them to be light and airy. Well they definitely feel light and airy on your skin but they are actually thick, nourishing body products.
I apply this early in the day since the scent is strong to my delicate (ahem) nose. I continue to smell it on and off throughout the day. It’s a true strawberry fragrance while the pear helps mellow it a little. The mousse itself is even a light pink in case the scent didn’t tip you off.
I barely need any since a little goes a long way – and the end result is soft, moisturized skin without my winter flakes. I love how my skin feels when using this. It’s exactly what my body needs. The cutest part is that my 5 year old granddaughter is in love with the smell. She keeps asking me to take her to the bathroom and the first thing she does is pick up the jar and smells it. Aaah! Then after she’s washed up she’ll do it again. When this is empty I’ll have to save the jar for her pleasure too.
Anything that can convert me to love a fragranced product has to be one of a kind and this body mousse definitely is.
LISA IS EATING UP BLACKBERRY COCONUT BODY MOUSSE
I’m the polar opposite of Marcia when it comes to fragranced body products. I don’t avoid them, I seek them out. I want to smell good! I layer on complimentary scented products in the morning and I am always happy when I am wearing a particularly lovely combo. I don’t go for scents that knock people over the head – I like ones that are noticed when someone comes in close. Many of my products are some variation of a coconut scent, so the Blackberry Coconut Body Mousse was right up my alley.
Like Marcia said, the body mousse is very thick and rich. It has a unique texture though – almost pudding-like. It goes on slightly wet and stays tacky for about 15 seconds before drying down into a lovely softness. I use this in the mornings over dry oil after showering, and I also use it on my hands and elbows throughout the day, especially since the air is dry now with the indoor heat.
The scent is so good and really unique. I can’t say I’ve ever had anything scented with a combo of blackberry and coconut, but it really works! You would think this would be foody, but it isn’t. The blackberry actually gives it a sophisticated edge so it’s not overly sweet. I really like it – beautiful fragrance, great texture, wonderfully moisturizing – there’s lots to love here!
These lovely mousses are also available in three more scents: Hot Chocolate Mocha, Vanilla Frosting, and Banana Mango. Choose your scent and indulge in this wonderful body mousse!
