Review: DKNY Be Delicious Skin Fragrance

DKNY Be Delicious Skin Fragrance with benefits

As my long-time readers will know, I’m rather a fan of the DKNY fragrances. The classic Be Delicious perfume is my summer go-to, and each new fragrance I try from the brand fast becomes a new obsession. When I met the lovely PR lady from DKNY a couple of months ago, she kindly gave me this little number to try out. It is the DKNY Be Delicious Skin Fragrance with Benefits.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. ‘Fragrance with Benefits’?! But don’t worry, I’m not about to go all NSFW on you. What this product essentially is is a regular Eau de Toilette spray with added skin benefits, including instant moisturisation, radiance and smoothness. It is meant to be used on your body like a normal fragrance, although rather than focussing on areas like your inner wrists and behind the ear, you can spritz this all over!

I popped the perfume onto my wrists, arms and general chest area, and was immediately hit with that gorgeous DKNY apple scent. I was slightly concerned that, due to my over-dousing of the fragrance compared to a normal perfume, I would smell like I’d just taken a particularly fruity bath. However, the scent was subtle enough to not be over-powering yet still packed a punch. I immediately noticed that my arms had a beautiful sheen to them, similar to what you’d expect from a glistening body moisturiser, but without any of the heaviness. It was barely-there, yet really looked lovely.

A few hours on, and the smell has faded but still has a freshness to it. The packaging does recommend using the fragrance twice per day for maximum results, which is probably how often I’d usually apply perfume. It will obviously run out slightly quicker than usual as you naturally use more of the product, and it is a similar price to its counterparts (at around £28), yet the added skin shimmer effect makes it worth the investment for me.

Will you be giving the DKNY Be Delicious Skin a whirl this summer?

Stay Creative,

      Hi Sara!

      I wear Shade 3 in the Illamasqua Skin Base 🙂 it’s just right for me! I have my hair done at a salon and don’t know the exact shade unfortunately, I just ask for blonde highlights. I have done a Hair Care video on my YouTube channel which explains all of the products I used on my hair!

      🙂 xxx
