Benefit Bathina Body So Fine Velvet Body Balm Review

I haven't tried many products from Benefit and how I came across this not-so-known body balm is a simple story. It was a gift from my cousin :) Initially I didn't know what purpose it serves. Though I got a rough idea  after opening the packaging, I did google to find out whether my guess is right :p and yes it was.


Description

The packaging is absolutely girly, the solid body balm comes in a hot pink tin [like our geometry box] and it has a cute applicator too. The applicator is soft on skin and takes a little of the body balm every time. It looks like a velvet cloth in black and a pink satin ribbon on top to hold. As I apply the balm on my skin it leaves a subtle glow and best to be used when you expose your legs and arms. Wish we have something as simple as this for our face too :) I have to mention about the smell - once applied I absolutely feel like a baby. Yes, the fragrance is like that of a baby cream with added sweetness. 


Likes
  • Gives a shine / glow to the skin when applied without any shimmer or glitter.
  • Comes in a cute packaging.
  • Thick solid balm with velvety applicator.
  • Smells amazing like a sweet baby cream. You like sniffing yourself ;)
  • Lasts really long. I have been using this for more than a year or two now. Don't remember exactly :p

Dislikes
  • Does not replace a moisturizer in any way. If you have very dry skin better to use it on top of moisturized skin.
  • The fragrance does not last long however the glow does.
  • Availability here is a problem.
  • Guess it has been discontinued but they have other body balms which I guess would be equally interesting.


Price

I have no idea about the price so googled to find out that it should range between $25 - $32 for 110 g !! - Rs.1300 - Rs.1700 approx !!!



Verdict

Anyone would love the glow and fragrance this balm leaves on the skin. Once in a while we can buy something so drool worthy ;) I enjoy using this every time and it is a unique product that we don't get to see frequently in the market. Since it was a gift I am super glad :D
