Product Review: Aquolina Bath Shower in White Chocolate

Name: Bath Shower in White Chocolate
Brand: Aquolina
Size: 250 ml
Price: €7,40

From Aquolina’s website:
Delicate and creamy bath shower that doesn’t dry skin, leaving it smooth and scented.

What I liked:
- cleans skin well
- leaves skin soft
- doesn’t dry skin
- delicious scent
- the packaging

What I didn’t like:
- the price

I love chocolate, especially white chocolate. I love eating it (although I try to do that in moderation :) ), and I also love using skincare products that smell like it. It’s just so sweet and delicious, isn’t it? So, I was delighted when I found Aquolina Bath Shower in White Chocolate in my December GlossyBox. But when I gave it a sniff, I realised the name is kinda misleading. In fact this body wash smells like coconut with only a hint of white chocolate. Still, it’s absolutely scrumptious and not overly sweet so I don’t mind. But how does it perform?

Aquolina Bath Shower in White Chocolate is white in color and has a lightweight consistency that cleans skin well without drying it out. Instead, it leaves skin soft, smooth and smelling delicious. I still have to apply a moisturizer afterwards, but then my skin is very dry, and overall, I was very impressed by its performance. The only thing I dislike is the price. The 250ml bottle, which is very simple and cute, retails at €7,40 which is quite pricey for a body wash, but if you want to pamper your skin with a delicious coconut and chocolate treat, it’s worth checking out.

Summary
Aquolina Bath Shower in White Chocolate is a scrumptious body wash that cleanses skin without drying it and leaves it soft and smooth. It has a delicious coconut scent with a hint of white chocolate that’s simply delicious. However, it’s quite pricey for a body wash.

Product Review: Aquolina Body Milk Icing Sugar

Name: Body Milk icing Sugar
Brand: Aquolina
Size: 250ml
Price: €9,00

From Aquolina’s website:
A hydrating, emollient and silky body milk.

What I liked:
- suitable for normal and oily skin
- leaves skin soft and smooth
- lightweight texture, absorbs quickly
- the packaging

What I didn’t like:
- not moisturizing enough for dry skin
- scent is too strong and nauseating

I have a soft spot for Aquolina as it reminds me of my adolescence. The brand makes bath and body products that have sweet, mostly foody, scents that just smell delicious and, like most Italian girls, I used their products quite a lot when I was a teenager. But I had never before tried their Icing Sugar range and I’m sad to say that I never will again. The lotion is good, but the scent I just can’t stand.

Aquolina Body Milk Icing Sugar, which comes packaged in a cute plastic bottle, is aquamarine in color (strange color for a body lotion, don’t you think?) and has a lightweight consistency that sinks into the skin quickly. It leaves my skin soft and smooth for a few hours (the scent instead lasts for ages!) but it’s not moisturizing enough for my very dry body skin. But if your skin is normal or oily, it will work much better for you. If you can put up with the scent, that is.

So, what’s wrong with the Icing Sugar scent? It is a very strong sugary vanilla scent that’s quite pleasant when you smell it from the bottle, but when you start applying it all over your body, it just gets nauseating. I had applied a small amount on one of my legs only and I was starting to feel really sick already and I seriously considered throwing it in the bin there and then. It’s just wayyyy too sweet for my taste. My boyfriend seemed to like it though. I guess this is one of those scents that people either love or hate so I suggest you give it a sniff at the shop before purchasing it.

Summary
Aquolina Body Milk Icing Sugar has a lightweight consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Suitable for normal and oily skin, it’s not moisturizing enough for dry skin. It also has a very strong sugary sweet scent that may put some people off.
