Luxurious and you didn’t think you needed it!
I never thought I needed body powder, I thought it was something elderly women used on their underwear and bodies as a substitute for deodorant. This is a gorgeous product. I love the scent, it’s a sexy yet very gentle scent that won’t interfer with your natural scent too much. It works so well on underwear and the legs on a night out and it takes ages to get through!

Velvet on the skin
I love a little luxury sometimes, and this beautiful-smelling product fits the bill. I feel truly pampered on a warm day by dusting my body. It keeps sweat at bay and makes me feel lovely and fresh. I also love wearing it to special occasions and foregoing additional perfume. I was using baby powder occasionally before this, on sweaty days, but this is a grown-up and more elegant option.

Great on hot days
Using this product is a super great way of feeling fresh and clean on hot days. I got this in a gift pack, and while the scent isn't the first one that I would pick, I have grown to love using it.
The powder has a jasmine fragrance which isn't particularly overpowering. My favourite part is the cocoa butter which leave my skin feeling soft ages after the powder has dissolved into my skin.
Be careful when applying, it likes to go everywhere!

Ohhh smells so soothing
I bought the LUSH Silky Underwear Dusting Powder because I love trying and using powders for hot summer days and nights. It's a great way to cool my body down and feel fresh and clean.
This powder comes in a clear plastic bottle with a black flip top lid. It is a 60g bottle, and the black lid can be taken back to LUSH for recycling. LUSH have a great recycling project where you can take back 5 empty clean full size black pots and receive a free full size face mask, although you can't do that with this bottle, you can still take the top back when you go into LUSH to recycle.
The powder itself is light tan, almost white colour and is very fine powder. The ingredients are corn starch, kaolin, cocoa butter, jasmine absolute, vetivert oil, and other oils.
Okay, about the fragrance, it is so incredibly intoxicating for me! It's not overpowering, but is a mild, inviting, irresistible, soothing, relaxing, pretty scent. It smells of jasmine and slight cocoa, but not strong, artificial or annoying. It is pure bliss!
This powder smells so good that I use it after my evening shower or apply it just before bedtime to gently relax in the scent and wind down for the night!
Just a little bit is enough to keep me smelling soft and beautiful.
It may look like a small bottle for the price you pay, but a little bit goes a long way in soothing and refreshing the skin.
I'm so glad I discovered this powder from LUSH. I will be repurchasing because it's fragrant and pure bliss on my skin. Wow!
Overall, I love the scent, which is soothing, gentle, and keeps me feeling positive because it puts me in a happy mood, love it!

Sprinkle before you tinkle!
Sprinkle before you tinkle!
What they claim:
Our original luxurious jasmine dusting powder with tiny bits of cocoa butter for supremely soft skin.
Plus, our dusting powders are multipurpose and gentle and you can use them for everything! A dusting powder can also be the perfect way to keep bub dry after a wash and nappy change, and is a great way to avoid nappy rash.
Initial thoughts on viewing the product:
A cute little clear bottle (to allow you to see the contents) with the black flip-top cap on top, you are able to see everything going on inside. Which is what: a finely milled powder made from 100% vegan ingredients, 100% critter friendly in a recyclable bottle. Love it. It also has an expiry date to ensure freshness (love). It is slightly perfumed so if you want anything sweetly scented, then (raised eyebrow)… go nuts! I’m used to baby powder with a twist-top opening so having a flip top with a single hole in the opening is just as effective, I suppose! The flip top is extremely secure and locks well, so nothing leaks.
Thoughts on application:
This is a product I have walked past many a visit to Lush however have never contemplated purchasing until the recent bout of humidity through Brisbane. After sweating and itching between-me-down-there (and baby powder just not cutting it), I thought enough is enough. I’m going to buy this.
The flip top and hole in the top is actually great for me in ensuring I get a small amount to shake in my hand. As I was using this for a very specific purpose, I really didn’t need to use much at all. And this bottle’s dispenser worked perfectly for me. So long as you don’t shake too vigorously, you will get just what you need.
The powder is light, in fact lighter than the natural baby powder I had previously been using, goes on smoothly, and lasts all day or all night. I wasn’t irritated at all and it served my between-me issues perfectly during our humidity crisis. Sigh of relief!
On application to the skin even under armpits or under the breasts (another area where chafing is an issue during humid periods), the skin becomes silkier and smooth, and very lightly scented. Yes, your skin will look lightly powdered however if you use baby powder, does this not also happen?
For those of you who might think this small bottle might not go far, think again. Unless you are going to coat yourself in this product, a little really does go a long way. And considering where I was using this, I think it is a great multi-purpose product that can be used on kids and adults alike. It’s my new body cult product.
Apply either over a bathmat or towel, don’t shake the bottle too vigorously and you are good to go. I found it was best to place a small amount in my hand first and then apply to the body part in question.
Be smart and apply prior to putting your clothes on. If you are going to wear dark clothing, make sure you wash your hands prior to getting dressed, and be aware there may be some powder transfer. My way of getting around that is to keep a slightly damp wash cloth handy to simply wipe down the powder marks and then move on!
Unless you have fragrance sensitivities, anyone could use this product. It is so light and easy to use. I’m quite simply loving it.

I love this product
I love this product! Apart from smelling divine, it feels gorgeous on the skin. Although the scent is sweet and subtle, I even had a few people compliment me on how nice I smelled when I used this.

Sweet smelling powder!
I love this product - I received this in a gift pack I received for Christmas and I use it everyday. It leaves my skin lightly scented and softly moisturised. Just beautiful!

I use this everyday, it makes me feel special. I love the smell, I love applying it with my big fluffy powder puff, and I love that it helps me smell and feel better at the end of the day. I dust a little anywhere that I sweat and wish I didn't. Divine.

Best for hot days!
This is soo much better than using talc products, its so lightweight absorbs all stickiness in hot days, but the best part is since it has coca butter its moisturizing too and not at all drying. the lingering scent is very fresh and sensual
