Love that it's:
I just bought the body balm and I love it! Love the packaging and there is two colors available red and pink. I got the red since i liked it better. Next I'm planning to buy the oil and combine these to great products together to get a maximum glow when I go out in the night
I love this product so much! My advice though is apply it sparingly because it goes quickly if you don't.
I was bought this years and years ago, and loved it. Bought again last week and is as gorgeous as I remember. As I walked past husband and daughter on way out after I put it on, they both said how lovely I smelt! Scent lasts as well, and I could still smell it slightly in the morning. Would have given 5 stars if pad was bigger, as this and tin seem to have shrunk. Bathina spray oil is on my wish list! I wish there was a perfume of this too.
I seen this product at Sephoras a few times so I decided to try it out and after that I was like "THIS IS A MUST HAVE" and after that I literally cant live without it. Smells amazing and feels even better. If you like to tan this is a product you have to get to accentuate that tan!
I tried this product out in the store and finally bought myself one recently. I usually only wear it on weekends when I go out, and EVERY time I have I've received compliments from friends that I smell good, look good, skin is soft, etc. Just a dab is all I need on my decolletage and shoulders, and the legs too if they're exposed. It's just the perfect amount of shimmer without being glittery, and the scent is wonderful. In fact, I'm going to order the Bathina body oil spray and hope it smells as good as this!
I've heard so much about "take a picture...it lasts longer..." and knew that I just had to give it a go, even though the price is a bit expensive for a body balm.
It definitely did not disappoint. The fragrance is a very nice floral scent and lingers long after application. The balm makes my skin look healthy and radiant and I definitely don't regret buying this product. I will definitely be repurchasing after my one runs out.
I'd been hearing and reading so much about this one that I wanted to know whether it was as good as all the gossip said it was, first hand. And I already wanted to buy it last year, but, alas, it was already sold out; apparently, it is a very sought-after item by TV presenters in Spain and they beat me to it (buying this item, I mean). However, this year I decided I would not let it happen again and bought it. I like the box very much; the smell, as far as I'm concerned, gets top marks; the shimmer is very nice, mother-of-pearlish, though not really perceptible, at least to me, though the feel to the skin once you apply this is quite nice.
I'll surely get another once I'll run out of the one I've still got.
I expected this to have just a bit more shimmer- but once I saw it in the light (as I really doesn't show up in indoor lighting) I was hooked. Not only does it smell like Spring, it basically makes wherever you put it look "young", smooth, and silky. Older skin looks drier- this makes it look dewy and young. (I'm 33, but I can tell my skin is changing)
I love the smell and the packaging but I find it hard to put on the skin. A lotion would work better for me.
The shimmer was too strong for my taste, but I love the scent! Which is why I decided to buy "Maybe Baby" but other than that I enjoyed using this a lot more when I was a teenager, not really anymore.
I tried it for my best friend's wedding. It's silky, smooth, smells amazing, and the most important - my boyfriend noticed the effect it gives! My legs and shoulders were realy ready for photoshoots. p.s. the package is just adorable! I'm crazy about Benefit's pots ang packs
After reading other reviews and knowing that I should either try and get a tan before my sister's wedding (I am verrry pale and I do not like to tan) and not wanting to be orange with fake tan products I decided that this should be perfect. And that's what it was, perfect. Instead of looking ghostly white, my legs looked great, with a nice glow to them. It's not shiny or oily looking at all and the scent isn't too strong either which were both things I was worried about. I would say it has about the same amount of shimmer and glow to it as the Sugarbomb box of powder. Now this will be my secret weapon for weddings and when I want to feel sexy, it is boyfriend approved including the scent.
I have been using this for over 12 years, and i still love and use it just about everyday! I don't tan, so this is perfect for me. Plus, it smells so wonderful! They used to make a lotion with the same scent, which was my very favorite lotion! I really miss it; I really wish they would bring it back, even if it were a temporary thing, like for Christmas! (By the way,it was called Bathina for those of you who don't remember or know).
I love, love, love the scent. Wish Benefit had other products with this same scent ... body wash, lotion, etc. It is the most unique scent, amazing!
I am so so disappointed by this product, after reading all the reviews I thought it sounded great. I have used it on 5/6 occasions it makes no visual difference to my skin the one good thing about this product is that it smells lovely. :-(
I LOVE Bathina! Theres nothing else that makes me feel so pampered! The scent and the look just make me feel glamorous and beautiful.
I have very pale legs and hate tanning. I rarely wear anything that exposes my pale legs. However, this makes my legs more presentable. It gives them a healthy glow and smells 'pretty'....I don't know how to describe the scent but it's lovely. I've actually gotten the courage to expose my legs a little more since buying this. I'm trying it on my arms next. :)
Leaves you silky & Smooth without being too greasy. Smells fab.
I love this so much. Great product
This product is just cute cute cute! Looks good, smells good and has some serious staying power! I use it one my chest neck area, shoulders and arms. Love it x
Love this !!! Bought it for being Chief bridesmaid at my sisters wedding after seeing it on QVC! Gives skin a Fabulous glow! Smells AMAZING and Best of all gives u THE softest skin imaginable!!
i'm in love with this, and use it all year round!!!
First of all, I bought this product for a wedding I was going to in Florida. I am very fair, and I knew a tan would look unnatural but I still wanted a little glow, so I bought this.
And I was very happy!
I didn't look tan, because that's not what I was going for (And this product would look FANTASTIC on tanned skin by the way), I was going for a lit from within look and that's what I got. I had compliments on how glowy my skin looked. The balm added just the right amount of a golden shimmer, and I smelled like roses all night! (The scent is similar to Benetint, a sweet rosy smell.) I didn't even need perfume. It looks SO good on the décolletage.
I use it on my décolletage, down the center of my shins and on the sides of my upper legs. I use it on my shoulders and collar bones. You will have a very natural, healthy glow. I highly recommend this product.
Another upside, you get almost 50 grams of product. That's a lot! Worth the price.
my god this product is amazing!!!!gives me shiny arms and legs.and the scent pretty amazing.best product ever.
Your legs will be shinning for ours like cinema star. I love it for summer.
it is a great product to even out skin tans and non tanned skin. it is great for uneven skin tones and has the best fragrance of "maybe baby"
Nothing gives your leg that VA-VA-VOOM like this shimmery body balm. Buff your legs shimmery by applying in a circular motion for a super sexy look that will drive your man WILD! Your skin will look and feel super silk after using this product. Also adds nice sheen to shoulders and dellocatage. Smells great too!
Luxurious.... Feels so good! Will definitely buy again.
I would use this product just for the smell. Plus who can get over that cute little pillow puff.
dose everything its says it dose. too bad i only use it during summer.
I love this product! It is amazing! Recommended!!!
I just bought it today and I really love how great it smells! It's a really nice product. :)
Love this soft, silky finish body balm and the scent always gets me! The cute little pillow and the tin make this a complete must have- too cute! I love this in the summer when I wear sundresses or shorts. xx
Got this as a gift and really lovin' it. Smells great. Love the packaging.
What a lovely product! First off, there's the tin it comes in... could it be any cuter? Next, there's the pretty sheen it gives you. Finally, there's the beautiful scent. I really like this one!
It's so amazing. When a product got so strong and good smell, it normally dry out my skin. But not this one. It's makes my skin look really fabulous. I love it.
I've been using this for years and every time I smooth it on, it feels like the first time. It's the easiest, quickest pick-me-up for your looks and your mood. The yummy smell doesn't hurt either.
This makes skin feel perfect and silky. This is a great lotion/powder. GREATNESS!
I found out about this product about 10 years ago and have been using it ever since. Have to admit I love the packaging too. I have gotten a few friends hooked as well.
I love this product! It always leaves my skin glowing <3
I noticed that some of the other reviewers mentioned how it was a little "oily", I would agree but you really do not need to use to much. A little goes a long way. When you get the tin you may think that it is to small, but when you realize how little you need to use the size does not matter. I put this on in the morning after I shower and by dinner I am still smooth. The "sheen" is very light, and the smell is delicious and sweet. A very wonderful body balm.
first of all, i loved the box!i am thinking to use the box even after i consumed all of the body balm, i like the shine it brings on my leg and it looks natural!
Product i great, but what I appreciate most is the packaging - the case can be used again, I find it really useful, and you get something that lasts, and reminds you of benefit!
This is hands down the most amazing body product ever! I've had about 6 tins of it, given it as gifts, and cannot get enough. It's silky and shimmery, makes your skin a perfect 10! A bonus? It also makes your bed sheets smell amazing! I absolutely love this product!
This is a wonderfully scented balm, that glides on easily. It is oily, though, so I had to use it at night. (couldnt use it under my clothes, made them oily) I would buy this again, feels great on just shaved legs!
I hate lotion - this is so much better! It smells fantastic and makes your skin feel great. Also, the packaging makes you feel like a pretty lady every time you use it. I love, love, love Bathina.
Absolutely love this perfect little bit of shimmer for a nice summer day.
This luxurious product smoothly moisturises skin, leaving a slight glimmer. Perfect for highlighting your tan, and adding that extra 'wow' factor. It has a distinctive, yet delicate floral fragrance, which is ideal, as you can still wear perfume without smelling overpowering! Tres magnifique!
In the tin there is a very generous amount which lasts long. Also, the 'retro style' tin is gorgous and can be re-used once the product is gone!
Remember what a certain Hollywood Honey used to say about Chanel °5.
Well, I say the same about this product.
The smell is amazing, the application with the sponge feels like you're worshiping yourself and the outcome of great legs and cleavage is definitely very enjoyable.
I still have the old packaging with Bathina at her dressingtable, so it goes to show how long this product lasts.
This cream is absolutely gorgeous! It is so silky smooth, the scent is so addictive and it gives my skin the most prettiest golden-pink shimmer I've ever seen! <3 it!
pretty much my favorite thing! my only complaint is the applicator is a tad bit annoying... smells and feels like heaven!
So silky and makes my legs ready for short skirts...
This is a staple of mine. I started using it 10 years ago. I wear it almost every day. People always tell me how good I smell and how my skin has a 'glow.' This stuff is the perfect secret weapon to feeling and looking luminous.
I love how this make my legs look so good, and this smell is so sexy!
the texture and scent are amazing! the puff gives an awesome coverage. the only teeny tiny issue I have is keeping the puff clean...nearly impossible!
Best product ever! It smells great and it's super cute :)
Love it! I use it all over my body to have a great shimmer. And I smell great too.
I love the shimmer this gives to my legs. It smells lovely, and doesnt stick when you walk.
THIS PRODUCT IS MY FAVORITE! this smells heavenly, makes my legs so smooth! i moisturize before i apply so that the application is flawless. a few extra minutes with this baby and you're goood to go! i LOVE the new makeover!
This would have received 5 stars, but in all honestly, i am still bitter Benefit discontinued Body So Fine. The packaging was cuter PLUS, no offense, benefit but this is the same price as body so fine.
Body so fine was 110g
Take A picture is 42.5g
WAY TO RIP US OFF. Not cool or fair to treat customers like this. BSF was better value.
Dont treat us like we're silly!
Good balm though.
This gave my legs a beautiful sheen after shaving them. The applicator is good for about 10 used if used with the grain of the velour and not against it. Then any sponge is great for it afterward.
I recently picked this up and I LOVE IT! It is perfect for the summer months -- not too sticky or greasy and it smells great. The perfume MAYBE BABY goes well with it too. I am so happy with this product! I hope it sticks around forever!

Is it safe for pregnancy?
Hey hot mama, all our cosmetics and skincare products are perfectly safe to use while pregnant…but just to be super cautious, we recommend waiting until after your baby is born to use Benefit body products. We hear you’re glowing anyway.
Does Benefit make this in a perfume version?
I am in love with this scent! When I put it on I catch myself sniffing my hands just to get a whiff of this lovely scent. Does Benefit make this in a perfume version? Or anything close to it?
Maybe Baby to me smell very similar! I don't know what the notes are in Bathlina, but try Maybe baby. Hope this helps.
There isn't a Bathina perfume, but we just launched a Bathina scented body oil mist called "Soft to touch...hard to get".
How to remove?
If I need to use makeup remover to remove it?
Just washes off like a lotion.
No, you don't need makeup remover. Soap and water will do the trick.
It doesn't look like it has a lot of product. . . How long does it last?
Like if you were to use it. . When do you use it?!?!?!? Like as a lotion everyday or only when you want to (week or so) ????!!!! If you used it everyday then how long til you hit pan? How long until you run out?
It's not a lotion, this is something you'd put on over your lotion. I put it on when I'm completely dressed & ready for the day. It adds a dewy, very sheer sheen. It's cream based, and goes on silky. Trust me, this will last a LONG time even with every day use- for example, in the Summer. My guess would be at least a year, as you only need a very small amount- and it suggests to "buff it" to promote more shimmer, so it will truly go a very long way.
You can use take a picture...it lasts longer anytime you want to add a little shimmery sheen to your normal routine. It should last 3-4 months with daily use.
Does it rub off or stain clothing/fabric?
Just concerned it could rub off and stain clothing in the same way make up does. I have a shimmery tinted sunscreen that looks fabulous on my skin but it has stained some of my bathing suits.
It stays on the whole day, and there was no stains on my dress after the wedding
It really depends on how much of this product you're applying. A little goes a long way and this balm is better absorbed than a lotion or cream. Hope this helps!
Since this body balm has a bit of pinky shimmer, can this be also used as a highlighter (in face) ?
I wouldn't use this on my face, I think it would be too thick. But then again, I have very sensitive skin. I would just stick to High Beam or That Gal if you're looking for a pink glow.
We don't recommend you use this product on your face. If you're looking for a highlighter, check these out http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/category/makeup/cheeks/highlighters
Is it a powder or creamy?!
It's texture is a lot like lip balm. Thicker than That Gal if you've used that, but not as thick as Dr. Feelgood. Definitely moisturize with lotion first though!
I know it sounds strange, but it's both really!
is this product for women of color? will it make you look ashy?
The way I see it, this product is to add a dewy, youthful glow to the skin- on any skin color. Since it's not a powder, it's creamy, I would recommend this to women of color! My own skin tends to be drier as I age... if anything it would help protect against ashy skin. I actually think this would look even more gorgeous on women with a bit more color than I have!!!
Take a picture... it lasts longer works well with all skin tones however if you are not sure, I would suggest going to one of our counters or boutiques to try the product before you purchase it. You can find the closest location to you by going to our website and clicking on store locator or copy/paste this link to your browser http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/brand/storeLocator.
How many months can it be used once opened? (Expiration Duraion?)
I bought it 2 years ago and used it for a while. Now I want to start to use it again, but I am afraid it has already expired since most Benefit products can only last 6 - 12 months once it opens.
Most of our products have a shelf life of 36 months once they've been opened unless it has an active ingredient in it, then you would have an expiry date on the product.
Does this product moisturize?
Before I apply "Take a picture...it lasts longer" do I need to apply lotion to keep my legs & elbows from drying out or does the balm moisturize by itself?
I would apply a light lotion before applying, while the product is silky it is not that moisturizing. Plus, you would gleam even more with moisturized skin! I apply it after I'm out of the shower and after I've put on lotion. Don't forget sunscreen, too!
The balm is somewhat moisturizing however if you have really dry skin, do apply lotion before.
Is this product fragrance free?
This product has a very subtle floral fragrance. I'm very sensitive to fragrances and the scent of Bathina is so sublte that I can't smell it unless I place my nose about 1 inch from the area I apply it.
