Back to business. Today, I am going to talk about this tall, handsome, navy blue – oops not black because, it’s a Talcum Powder. Yes, this talc smells like that and made me talk like this. Okay, that was just a blame game!
So ladies and gentlemen, I present you the Nivea Musk Talc. I picked this talc when I went shopping with my mom. The moment I saw it – tall, handsome navy blue container and with a discount. (I paid Rs.100 only; Rs.50 off) I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did that. Though it was like a risk because I wasn’t sure about the fragrance part which matters a lot to me. But, my old trick of choosing the one which would be packed in purple or blue color may smell nice or at least I can bear it, again proved correct.
Yes, I do this when I can’t be sure about the fragrance part or I am with no options. But, it is not necessary that it will work out for you still, you may give a try.
It comes in a plastic container; it is not travel friendly at least, I won’t prefer carrying a 400 g talc bottle which has a soft plastic. Instead I would use another small, travel friendly container. The nozzle or the dispenser is smooth and easy to use; you just need to rotate it.
Staying power is good with a really soft texture plus it keeps me fresh and keeps away the sticky feeling. I think availability won’t be an issue as it is a Nivea product and doesn’t cost much if we check the quantity we get plus if you could get it in discount that would be another benefit. Only, thing which turned me off was the Paraffin Oil in the ingredient list but, then I will give it a benefit of doubt because, most product we use nowadays has some kind of chemical in it even the air we breathe is not pure anymore!
Talking about the talcum it is good and I like it – especially the fragrance part. I really envy the men products; they mostly smell so great and have a strong fragrance which stays for longer. And for women they make it really soft and flowery kind or even if it is strong it doesn’t stay for long. It has musky smell which is meant for men and yes this talcum is for men but nothing is mentioned as such on the container.
I am just guessing it out and plus saw it on the internet too. It smells good, masculine but not that strong and stays for longer. Yes, sometimes I use men products just because it smells so great. haha! I live in Mumbai and I have used it in hot weather and trust me I sweat a lot and this one worked really great at least for first 2-3 hours (when I was travelling in hot weather) without using deodorant and it leaves a light fresh smell on my skin!
How it smells? – I think that is little tough to describe but till date whatever I have used this, the smell is unique and different. Masculine but soft at the same as it says ‘gentle care and reliable protection’. I kind of agree with it. I keep sniffing it just for the sake of sniffing or if I smelled something horrible or to check how do I actually smell, I sniff it and sometime use it in my hanky. Every time I smell it I feel refreshed and all good!
Price : Rs. 150 for 400 g
Rating : 4/5 or maybe 4.5/5 :P
Overall, I like this talc and the fragrance specially; it is really a good deal for the price. I would recommend it to you guys. But, I won’t keep using this because I like to try different variants and fragrances. But I think I will keep coming back to it for its quality and the fragrance!
