Balea body spray - Brazil Mango LE :)

Hello again! Another review and a little chat from UniqaPoly :D I know, again a review... I just wanted to clean up a bit and do the posts I promised and the reviews.. so I can finally get to writing about other products, other reviews, swatches and about things that are more recent :PAnd maybe even some make up looks :)
So today I'll talk about this Balea body spray. First, I want to ask you - do you even use body sprays? Do you see them as an useful product or just a waste of money? Do you consider body sprays as essential product for your skin care or just as a bonus,  a little something to treat yourself?

I had quite a dilemma when buying this one.. I just couldn't  decide whether to buy it or not, will I actually be using this or not.. I remember when I first bought my very first body spray, I was still in high school.. so like years ago.. and I never got even to the half of the bottle. I never really used it, I just didn't know what to do with it. So this time I was like standing in front of the body care shelf and had no idea will this actually prove to be a good buy or not. So far, I admit, I haven't been using it much. And I keep it on my working desk, so I see it all day long. But I so rarely actually take it in my hands and use it. I don't know what is wrong with me!! When I was deciding whether to buy it or not, I promised myself I will use it up by the end of the summer or autumn. And the scent is sooo gorgeous, I just couldn't resist!

So, about the product :) Packaging is a plastic bottle with a spray pump. As you can see it can be opened at the top and the bottle could be reused for something else :) The bottle is orange coloured, the product is clear coloured. You get 200 ml for about 2 euros, I think.

Ingredients are few and not that good: aqua, alcohol denat, parfum, panthenol, cocamidopropyl betaine, allantoin, sodium chloride, limonene, geraniol, benzyl alcohol.
As you can see quite a lot of alcohol in just one product, so if you have sensitive skin, this product will definitely not be good for you. 

What this product promises: care with cooling effect, refreshing body spray with with fresh fruity scent of mango. Pleasant refreshment of your skin in summer, does not leave a sticky film on your skin.
How to use: I probably don't need to write that down? :P Except do not spray it anywhere near eyes or on your clothes.

Mainly I use it on my arms and neck and cleavage. It smells great, a really lovely fruity scent. I love the scent so much, I can hardly resist not to buy also the shower gel Brazil Mango, it's the same scent and oh so yummy! It does not feel greasy or sticky on me, more like water with added perfume. I do not smell alcohol at all. Also it does not irritate my skin anywhere on the locations where I use it, I had no skin problems so far. It dries really fast, like half a minute and it's no longer there, it just leaves a nice pleasant feeling on the skin, a little bit cooling. So when I'm feeling really hot this kinda helps me :)

If I recommend it - hmmm, I don't know.. it's nothing special, but at the same time it's nice. If you know you are actually gonna be using the product before it's too old and all you can smell is alcohol... than yes, try it, it's really not expensive and if you love fruity scents this will be quite a good thing. Personally I don't think I will repurchase the same one, maybe I'll try with some other scent next summer :)

Hope this was useful to you and thanks for reading!

Love, UniqaPoly
