Benefit’s moisturizing Bathina body balm (lucky girl that she is) just got a spring makeover.
Hey, now, don’t stare! Just “Take a Picture… It Lasts Longer…” — that’s actually the product’s name. And for $28 she flaunts updated packaging and a shimmery new color (a light golden pink).
I think it’s part of a beauty conspiracy… Have you heard the news? Benefit recently marked down the original Bathina (Body So Fine) from $30 to $22.50, an obvious ploy to prep us for the arrival of Bathina 2.0.
Speaking of the prequel, Body So Fine and I go waaay back. We have history, yo! My bestie, Jen, gifted me a tin for my 26th birthday, and I’ve been a fan ever since — the light floral fragrance and super softening balm adds a touch of sexy pink shimmer to legs and arms (great for date nights with the boy).
Luckily, the updated version’s just as fab as before (if not better). Benefit kept the same formula and fragrance but tweaked the shimmer. Instead of a silvery pink, the new Bathina gives skin a golden pink glow, one I wager more girls will be able to wear well.
They even cut down on the bulk by compactifying (a real word, honest) the packaging, making it better for overnight trips. Big thumbs up to Benefit for doing so because the big old tin was a pain in my you-know-what.
And how ’bout the cute girl on the tin? If ya happen to know where I can buy her butt, lemme know, LOL!
Bathina “Take a Picture…It Lasts Longer…” touches down early next month at Benefit.com and should debut on counters a couple weeks later.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Today felt like the Longest. Day. Ever! Is it Friday yet, LOL!? All I want to do now is curl up in front of the TV with a brownie, some ice cream and my Sex and the City DVDs. Can’t wait for this weekend ’cause I’m feeling kinda beat.
How’s it going out your way? I hope you had a good day.
