REVIEW: The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Body Lotion

The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Body Lotion


According to The Body Shop‘s website,

A luxurious body lotion with the sensual scent of White Musk Libertine: a floral musk with sweet notes of Turkish delight, baby orchid and Chantilly cream.

  • Contains      cruelty-free musk
  • White Musk      Libertine scent

Price: INR 945/- for 250ml.


Available at all The Body Shop outlets.

My experience:

I bought this body lotion ( here) during sale, i.e. at 20% off. I bought it purely for the fragrance. Anyone who has tried the White Musk Libertine fragrance at TBS would know how strong and alluring this scent it. When I sniffed it, I couldn’t resist buying something from the range and at that time winters were just on their way so I picked up the body lotion. And I don’t regret my decision at all. 😀

The packaging is great. I absolutely love the packaging. It’s a sturdy plastic bottle with a pump dispenser.

DSC00265The dispenser allows the right amount of product to come out – not more, not less. The pump can also be locked by twisting it and so it’s great for travelling too. The packaging has a white and pink label on it which is very pretty.


The consistency of the lotion is just right. It looks like milk. 😛


It spreads very easily on application. And it doesn’t leave any greasy cast on skin. It just gets soaked in. I hate lotions that make me greasy even for a second.

The fragrance is heavenly. It’s not the overly floral or fruity kindof fragrance. It is a more mature, musky kindof fragrance, yet feminine too. Okay okay, I know I’m very bad at defining fragrances. 😛

But I love the fragrance.

The lotion is very moisturing. A bit less than the TBS body butter but it still does a great job at hydrating my skin.

Another thing I like is that the fragrance lingers around me for more than other body moisturizers. I can still sniff it after 4 hours.

Overall, it’s a great moisturizer, with a great White Musk scent. But it’s pricey, so try catching it during sales.

Why you’ll like it:

1)     Moisturizes very well.

2)     Very convenient pump packaging.

3)     Great fragrance.

4)     Doesn’t make skin greasy on application.

Why you’ll dislike it:

1)     Expensive.

To buy or not to buy?
