Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Vixen Body Double Mist Review
I’m starting to bust out all my vanilla-scented body products and perfumes because I like using them during the ber months, even though the weather certainly doesn’t turn cold here. Vanilla feels really cozy to use when the temperatures in our country become cooler by a small degree, and it makes me more relaxed—it turns me into less of a grinch during the approaching holiday season. Today is a perfect example. It’s been dim and raining on and off here since morning, and I was feeling under the weather, with an itchy throat and skin that’s feeling more and more dry. So I used the Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Vixen Double Mist as a little treat.
A doubly sweet hydration sensation! Two layers of skin conditioners and fragrance mix things up for soft, scented skin. Shake well, spritz on, and drive them wild with the Vanilla Vixen scent.
Vanilla Vixen- creamy vanilla and pink sugar.
This product looks cute. The bottle is clear and plastic, but the liquid inside is a bright orange color, with a layer of clear liquid at the bottom. Shake it and you get a lighter orange color. The cap sucks though, it doesn’t go on tightly, which I keep forgetting, so when I grab the bottle by the cap, it drops to the floor.
The scent isn’t a vixen-y vanilla. That is, it’s not an annoyingly strong vanilla, but a mild, soft one, which I ‘d totally prefer over a loud, tooth-achingly sweet, candyish scent. This is a simple, not overly sweet or foody, which I think makes it good for layering or just wearing around the house (won’t make my little girl sneeze or fooody-scent haters frown).
Victoria’s Secret Body Double Mists are different from the regular, or old fragrance mists in that they’re a very light, watery sort of oil, so that they can sort of double as a very lightly moisturizing body oil and fragrance. It dries pretty quickly on the skin, so even when used in hot weather, it doesn’t feel sticky or greasy. I like to spray this on, then apply my regular lotion to give my dry skin some extra moisturization.
- The soft vanilla fragrance, which still doesn’t smell overpowering when sprayed all over the arms and legs, and can be layered with other perfumes.
- The formula is slightly moisturizing.
- It doesn’t remotely oily on the skin.
- It doesn’t irritate my skin.
- The packaging looks cute and cheery.
- Not too expensive. The bottle is pretty big at 8.4 fl oz and costs around PhP 350 at the PX stores at Cash and Carry (located by the South Luzon Expressway, right before the Skyway ramp).
Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Vixen Body Double Mist – What I Don’t Like:
- The cap is flimsy.
- Not widely available.
The Victoria’s Secret Body Double Mists are pretty fun, and for me, useful products. They make me smell good, and at the same time, give my parched skin a little bit of moisture and prep before applying lotion. The sweetish, but mild scents are right up my alley. They’re not too costly either, and a bottle lasts some time, so I recommend these if you want a light layer of fragrance and moisture. I’ve tried the Candy Baby scent before and will probably try more scents.
