Here’s a product from LUSH that I will repurchase! Silky Underwear is a dusting powder with little slivers of cocoa butter to moisturize. And somehow these little cocoa butter slivers really work. They absorb quickly into the skin and don’t leave me greasy. Thank goodness, they aren’t little clumps covered in powder that just set on the skin.
I love dusting powders. I’m old-school. I love to have a classic fragrance such as Chanel No.5 in powder form. I also like to make my own dusting powders and dry shampoo. I don’t use dusting powders frequently, only in the summer , but when I get on a “kick”, it’s hard to get my attentions elsewhere. It’s summer and I’ve been purchasing dusting powders and making my own. I went to a local LUSH boutique recently to buy Silky Underwear. I seriously have to stop going to the boutiques and only order on-line. The scent of the store is so overwhelming that induces asthma attacks and causes allergic reactions for a week.
The SA told me to use this product over a light lotion in the summer. My skin should still be moisturized but shouldn’t be sticky. This means something when you live in an area with little a/c. I’m sick of feeling slimy when it gets over 80°. She gave a nice demo (even though I was there to purchase this demo or not) and she told me of the sexy cocoa butter and jasmine scent. I couldn’t smell a damn thing in the store so I had to take Miss SA’s word even though I had serious doubts of the fragrance.
The formula is very smooth. It’s a powder so it is messy. If you use dusting powders than you know this. Dusting powders suck if you have black or dark furniture 🙂 I apply dusting powders over a rug so that my excess makes a luxurious carpet powder to be vacuumed later. The clay and cornstarch formula absorbs oils/moisture and leaves my skin feeling cocoa butter smooth. I really think on hotter days that this could be my moisturizer. After applying Silky Underwear, my skin is left smooth and not chalky or ashy.
To the scent…The SA said that this smells like jasmine and cocoa butter. LUSH Silky Underwear does smell like cocoa butter. Jasmine? What jasmine? What I do get is cocoa butter with dried vetiver like aroma. This is actually very pretty. Sometimes I think I pick up on a floral, but I think it is me looking for it because it is a note listed. If jasmine is present it must fade very quickly. I mainly get a sweet and slightly woodsy fragrance. It layers wonderfully with Clarins Eau Dynamisante and Guerlain Vetiver, scents I reach for in the summer.
Retails for $11.95 for 3.5 oz. It is only available at LUSH. When I’m out of this dusting powder, I will repurchase. I really like it. And this is coming from someone that really likes to try dusting powders.
