REVIEW: The Body Shop Satsuma Eau De Toilette

 

Review Of TBS Satsuma EDT


Summers I Love You... Summers I Adore You... Summers I Wait For You...
Yup I am a Summer lover... Of course to many of you all it's almost equivalent to a crime especially for those who come from cities that have the most unbearable Summers :P But there is something about tanned arms, aam pannas, chilled orange juices, Iced teas, swimming pools, shorts and chappals that hold so much romance for me that makes me a warm weather lover through and through...



Plus with the change in season, come a change in my bath products :) Warm, musky and spicy scents give way to clean, fresh, juicy and citrus-y scents... Think Lemons, Passion Fruits and yes Oranges :)

So this time like always, when I visited The Body Shop to replenish my stash of Satsuma Shower Gel, I got drawn to the Satsuma Eau De Toilette and well the little glass bottle looked so cute I had to pick it up without even smelling it... Well even if I has smelled it, it wouldn't have changed what I am about to write about the product :)

Body Shop's Satsuma Range of products is for me by far their best fruity fragrance range after their Peach range, which is as elusive as a Sale at MAC :/

So how does the Satsuma EDT smell? Well... It smells exactly as the shower gel. However, when you first spray it, it smells of freshly peeled Oranges... You know the beautifully pungent, tangy smell that hits you when you squeeze an orange peel... Yup that's the one... The first spray smells exactly like that and then it gradually mellows down to a fragrance that you associate with a fresh glass of Orange juice that your mom keeps ready for you at the breakfast table... And then as the days wears on, the fragrance settles to a mellowed orange candy kind of smell and stays with you all day...



Now if you only use the EDT, the fragrance stays on for about 4-5 hours easily... However, I first use the shower gel and then this, so the fragrance stays on me for more than 7 hours... My next quest is to layer it over a Satsuma Body Butter and see the results :)


Price of The Body Shop Satsuma Eau De Toilette In India:

It costs INR 795/- for 30 ml

Ooooohhhsss And Aaaaahhhhsss!!!
1. Gorgeous fruity, Orange-y fragrance.
2. Pretty decent staying power.
3. Works well with layering.
4. Doesn't cause any kind of irritation or reactions.
5. TBS doesn't test on animals!
6. Cute little bottle
7. The fragrance isn't overbearing and hence girls who have an issue with strong scents (like me!) need not be worried :)


Ouches!!!
1. A little expensive.

Repurchase?
Definitely! The Satsuma range is my current favorite at TBS :)

Recommend?
If you are a fresh fruity fragrance lover and don't mind smelling like an Orange, this one's sure for you :)

Overall Rating:
10/10

  5. Arrey 795 for an edt isn't bad at all. When you said expensive, I was thinking over 1700- 2000 considering the crazy rate prices are going up anyway!
    I've used two tubs of the satsuma body butter and they were quite strong/ strange/ tropicana type smelling. So I've had enough of it but I really, really want to check out other EDTs now! Oh the only EDT I've used from TBS was Love etc and that was nice too!

    1. hahahhaha no doubt it isn't.. but the bottle looks soooo tiny you know :/ and paying 800 bucks for such a tiny things saddens me :P
      Satsuma body butter isn't good? :( you don't recommend?

    2. No no it's good. If you like the fragrance! It's lighter than the other cocoa type body butters so pretty good for summer! Haha I know what you're saying about the bottle being small! :/ But it's 30 ml! :P Oh and I know (read looonngg back) that you like The Elezabeth Arden green tea perfume.. I love it! And the smaller bottle of that (30 ml, Rs 800 then) and the TBS Love etc bottle around 1000 rupees stayed in my bag alternatively!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
