Perlier Lemon Crackling Body Water

Disclaimer: Product sent to me for the purpose of review.  All opinions expressed are my own.

I was recently sent Perlier's Lemon Sorbet Refreshing Ice Granita.  This product is said to be a refreshing crackling ice body water.  

Perlier is an Italian manufacture of bath and body treatments.  Founded over 80 years ago, the company specializes in therapeutic products using natural ingredients.

According to the product packing, Perlier's Lemon Sorbet Refreshing Ice Granita is "sparkling and crispy like a fruit sorbet.  It moisturizes and refreshes in one step and turns your skin pleasantly smooth and scented.  Ideal in the morning for a splash of 'freezing' energy or at night to remove tiredness and the heat of the day."

This is definitely an interesting product and one unlike anything I tried before.  I tried to photograph the product itself but is transforms so rapidly I couldn't.  The only thing I can think of to describe it is a liquidy mouse, almost as if you didn't shake your hair mouse and it never got to that thick mouse texture and instead stayed kind of runny. 

You spray it directly onto your skin and it immediately starts to dissolve and effervesce, tingly your skin.  As you rub it into the skin, its cooling and moisturizing, refreshing the skin.

Even having used this product many times now, I am still very intrigued and a little confused by it.  I keep wanting to use it and I'm not quite sure why.  I wouldn't say its super moisturizing and it definitely won't replace a regular moisturizer for me.  It is cooling and your skin is immediately cooled and refreshed, which kind of lingers to the touch for a little bit.  

Overall it just feels nice immediately after applying.  I probably wouldn't say it has any long term benefits and won't improve the condition of your skin, but its a really nice pick me up for your skin.  It would be a great addition to your beach bag to cool your skin in the sun.    I also read that you can leave it in the fridge for added cooling, which I have not yet tried.

This also smells really great.  While the scent is lemon, I kind of want to say it smells a little like oranges as well. 

Perlier's Lemon Sorbet Refreshing Ice Granita retails for $24.50 through HSN.  I am really curious to try more of Perlier's products next time I am in the market for a new cleanser or moisturizer.  It is a new brand for me and I'm not sure why, but I'm sold on this Crackling Body Water.
