What body splash are you using?
A body splash, commonly known as a body mist or body spray is like a perfume but does not contain a high percentage of fragrance oils thus milder that perfume. They are usually light and cheaper than quality perfumes.
Without the overpowering element of a perfume or cologne, the right body splash could make you feel refreshed. If you love pretty scents yet cologne or perfume feels overpowering for you, why not try body mists?

Many women complain that their body sprays does not last long while at the same time, spraying excess of it will actually not help. In fact, it can even irritate especially when you are allergic. You would not want to mess with allergens dear! So better prepare your skin adequately before getting the spritz to work for you.
1. Take a thorough shower with a complimentary gel or soap.
Scents will always last longer when used on moist skin so always get a proper shower first. Embrace complimentary body washes or soaps when showering. I mean, shower with a body wash or soap with the same fragrance as your spray to prepare your skin. But if you cannot find the complimentary scent to shower with, go for an unscented soap so that eventually, the spray’s fumes can be profound.
This is called the art of layering fragrances since some scents are not as long lasting.
2. Use a complimentary lotion.
Once you have toweled off, apply a body lotion with the same scent all over your body while paying attention to the points that you’ll wear your body splash.
3. Wear your body splash on moist skin that has been oiled properly.
After your shower, pores tend to open up hence readily absorb the body mist to ensure it lasts longer.
4.Spritz on your pulse points.
Pulse points are known to harbor scents so always spritz on the wrists, inside of your elbows, front of the neck, back of the knees and even between the breasts.
While spraying, allow a foot distance when spraying towards yourself. This will ensure that the spray covers the entire skin since air around disperses it around.
If you use it as an underarm deodorant, you might still suffer from sweat so better use both the deodorant and the body mist.
5.Ensure the fragrance has dried on your skin before dressing up.
Give yourself a minute for the scent to dry up on your skin before actually dressing up; unless you want your clothes to wipe off the scent from your skin.
6.Spray your clean hair too.
You can also wear the spray on your hair although not directly since it can dry out your hair. What you should do is take the hair brush and spritz on it before combing your hair to give it a similar beautiful scent.
7. To ensure the body mist lasts throughout the day, spray on a small cotton ball or on ear buds and stash them in your bra or handbag for the fragrance fumes to last longer.
8.Spritz your clothing carefully too if you only require a little scent or even if you want an overall scent.
How? Spray a few inches away from your clothing; I mean, spritz in the air and walk through the mist to scent your clothes.
WHAT BODY SPLASH I’M I USING?
Depending on the occasion, I consider the type of scent I wear. Currently, I use body splash from Dear Body; precisely: Pink Velvet body splash and Dream Chiffon body splash ,Signature Collection, Body Luxuries. I use either of the two body sprays whenever I don’t want to wear perfume.

1. DREAM CHIFFON FROM DEAR BODY
Of course, the very first of my body mists was this pretty fragrance from Dear Body. I wear the floral body splash whenever I’m off to dates. It’s fruity, zesty, floral and even nutty fragrance is what one would need for a feminine scent anytime!
Honestly, the splash is what one would wear over and over since its scent can be so intoxicating. Packed with lush cherry blossom and some juicy notes, the splash can give you a fine feminine finish of that calming yet soft scent. It’s a beautiful scent that you’d actually need for your scent collection!
Lovers of floral scents are enthusiastic, blooming with positive imagination and very cheerful while fruity scent admirers are the classic adventurous ones with a carefree nature, who cherish being the center of attraction. Is this you? ‘Cause I can call myself this sweetheart!
2. PINK VELVET FROM DEAR BODY
All right ladies, if you love all things tropical like I do, the Pink Velvet is for you! The amazing rush of fresh exotic fruit scent will transport you right to this Dear Body’s body spray. Wanna smell like oranges, lime and lemons all the way, then you’ll love this airy, crispy and zingy scent!
Pink Velvet is also a fresh yet musky fragrance; one I wear during the day when I don’t want to wear perfume.
And again, lovers of musky scents are sexy, mysterious and always a step ahead of everyone while fresh scents offer a pleasing balance and aroma thus speak for those who are calm, carefree and effortlessly cool. You’d actually want to be described like this, right? I surely do no wonder my love for this fresh yet musky scent.
The best thing about all these scents is that they are all cruelty-free. I mean, no animal testing is done for these fragrances at any point during production. Many prefer vegan scents so if you are one of them, then you are sorted!
Just like a little black dress, a signature scent can stick with you for life. One you find ‘The Scent’ for you, it can be hard to let it go; it becomes part of your essence and spritzing it becomes a routine. Just as it is for me since I’ve been using these two for a year now! I love them for being soft too!
Anyway, what do you think about vegan scents? And how much do you love my body sprays? What body splash are you using too? Or do you even use body mists?
