So Irresistible

So Irresistible

First of all I need to state that I am a sucker for packaging. Especially vintage inspired packaging because I have a weird obsession with all things old. I really have a hard time connecting with my generation and hold onto vintage things even cutesy Benefit packaging. So, that is what really motivated me to purchase a tin of $30 body balm. Luckily, the actual product is awesome and I love it.

Benefit Body So Fine is a lightly scented velvety body balm that comes in an adorable “boudoir” inspired pink tin with a little black Bathina puff. It looks amazing in my “boudoir” that my poor husband has to share with me. Ignore the complaints on makeupalley.com, I have absolutely no complaints of this product. Of course I am the type of gal that on my days off wears red lipstick and false eyelashes even though I may or may not leave the house. I believe you must always look drop-dead gorgeous. Some people dislike the fragrance, which I expect, we are all very different. The people that dislike it describe it as smelling “old”. First of all these are the people that like to smell like Victoria’s Secret body spray, I don’t. I wear Guerlain Jicky and Pigeut Fracas, now that is old. Body So Fine smells exactly like Benefit’s Maybe Baby in my opinion ( a very new smelling fragrance). It is a light “tumbling” floral with a hint of apricot. Benefit claims it is an aphrodisiac. I’d believe that. My husband loves it. It just smells feminine and not too complicated for “man” noses. It isn’t loud and works well with other scents, even patchouli. Second complaint others had was with the black puff. They said it got all icky and clumpy with the balm. I have used this everyday for quit sometime (over a month) and my puff is smooth, yes stained with the balm but do I care? No. This stuff feels like silk on the skin. It is smooth and moisturizing. A little goes a long way. It adds a very faint glimmer that is the ultimate in sexy. The best way that I can describe it, is that it makes you look like you are wearing hose but your not. It’s a great alternative for itchy hose. If you are feeling “blah” and wear this, I guarantee it will pick you up. You could be wearing sweats and feel like the ultimate in sexy lady with this stuff smeared on your decollete. And isn’t that what feeling simply irresistible is about?
