Bathina was one of my first introductions to Benefit – I remember it so clearly as well – this beautiful oblong tin of scented body balm that was ridiculously glamorous. It was also along the same time line as another product – Hard Candy Edible Body Glitters – which was like nothing I’d ever seen before. So, between the two of them it was quite a week for new products although I wonder now why I EVER thought an edible body glitter was a great innovation. Glitter in your teeth? No thanks!
The newest member of the Bathina family is a soft, misting body oil – so pretty with a lightly floral, clean smelling, skin-scent (actually, it’s a truly ageless scent; no down-wash of over-powering vanilla here) It contains sweet almond oil, olive fruit, avocado oil and Vitamin E and sprays a fine mist that barely takes a nano-second to rub in. You aren’t going to get ultra-hydration from this – it’s more of a scented finishing spray to give skin a final and light moisture boost. It claims to double as a massage oil – without wanting to spoil the romantic illusion, you’d either need one heck of a lot or you’ll have to prepare for some friction burns.
Bathina Soft To The Touch..Hard To Get (eh?) is £26.50 and launches in November.
