Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist Review

Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist Fall 2013

Benefit Bathina Soft to the Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist makes an appearance this Summer for soft, silky skin. Don’t get me wrong I love me some Benefit Crescent Row Fragrances but I have a super soft spot in my heart for Bathina.

Bathina was probably one of my first experiences with Benefit! I was drawn in by her retro vintage pin up girl look! As a fan of Bettie Page and Dita Von Teese it’s easy enough to fall in love with Bathina isn’t it?

Bathina returns this year in the form of a new body oil mist! If you love Benefit Maybe Baby (I miss B Spot bring it back, bring it back!) I think you’ll adore this new mist.

Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist ($34) should be a hard no for me as I dislike dry oil mists or body oil mists. Not only are they hazardous to my health (hello slip and fall action) but I also dislike how they feel on my skin!

Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist

But no worries here as Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist is actually a super fine body oil mist that absorbs easily and isn’t greasy in the least. It has a base of sweet almond, olive, and avocado oil to keep skin moisturized and super soft but not greasy or oily. It mists on just as a regular fragrance mist would and has a lighter dry oil feel. It’s a very, very fine mist which is why you aren’t getting that oily feel after using it. It gives a hint of a sheen on legs and has a delicate yet rather fabulous lingering fragrance which is the same you’d get from the popular Maybe Baby fragrance.

I think Maybe Baby is such a sexy, feminine with it’s lovely notes of apricot, white ginger, fresh water blossoms of cyclamen, lychee, bergamot, white musk, Himalayan poppy and warm peach. It’s a delicate floral scent but so very flirty! I love it so I’m happy Benefit Bathina Soft to Touch Hard to Get Body Oil Mist has the same notes.

This body oil mist is also quite nourishing with vitamin e to keep skin soft and firm. I mist it on after my shower and the scent pretty much lingers through my day. It doesn’t have an incredible hard throw but it is a fragrance that’s very intimate so if you’re sitting close to someone they are bound to catch a sniff of this intoxicating scent. I like it on my legs as well since it gives them a lovely little sheen!

    Looks good! I’m trying to decide between this and the original Bathina.
    By the way Muse, are you planning to review any of ButterLondon’s new color cosmetics? They’ve got some really interesting products and the cream blush really caught my eye, but I want to hear what the Muse thinks first😊
