Review: Clinique Happy Body Smoother - what is a body smoother?

This is a review of the Clinique Happy Body Smoother.  I bought this in Bicester Village during my trip to London.




What it does:
Lightweight lotion instantly hydrates, leaves skin feeling smooth, silky. Lightly scents skin with the fresh, vibrant notes of Clinique Happy-a hint of citrus, a wealth of flowers, a mix of emotions. Wear it and be happy all over.
(from clinique.com)

Price: $28.50 for 6.7oz.

Pros:
  • Smells very similar to Clinique Happy perfume
  • Like all body lotions, putting this lotion on before applying Happy perfume will make the scent last longer.
  • Soaks in quickly without leaving the skin feeling oily or greasy
  • Is hydrating enough even in the winter (for me)
  • I liked the thickness of this lotion


Cons:
  • If you don't like Clinique Happy, you probably won't like this lotion
  • I have no idea what a "body smoother" is. There are no exfoliating bits in this lotion, and it feels exactly like a body lotion.  Clinique has a separate "Happy body cream", so I'm not clear what this product is supposed to do.
  • Expensive for a body lotion. However, other body lotions for high end perfumes are also around $25-30.

Would I repurchase: No.  I liked that I got to try it, and I would buy it if it were part of a set.  Since I usually shower in the evenings, I don't need a body lotion to smell like a perfume.

Do you wear the same body lotion as your perfume?  

Hope you enjoyed this review!

xoxo, K

  1. thanks for the review. :)
    i used to match my perfume and body products but nowadays not so much..some perfume smells better not layered and vise versa.
    i agree with you. shelling out close to $30 for a scented body lotion is a bit much. ;)

  2. I've got the Burberry Body Spray Oil and I LOVE it! It's so moisturizing and really subtle. I'd buy it again!

  4. Mmm the name is quite misleading for someone like me, it's sounds like an exfoliator! :D
