Soft and Silky - Bath and Body Works Body Lotion

It feels extremely refreshing when you are out of shower and the fragrance on you keeps lingering till some time.  I like my body lotions to be with me for some time before the fragrance disappears completely.

A big fan of Bath and Body Works (BBW). Their store is full of amazing product. To my delight, when I visited their store in Dubai, there was an offer going on.  Buy 2 get one free, you can pick any product from their range.

I decided to go with three body lotions. Was looking out for Honeysucke but it was out of stock. Still there were many on the display which looked very promising and their fragrance could transform you to a different world all together.

Picked up Aspen Caramel Woods, Cashmere Glow and Japanese Cherry Blossom. 




Packaging : The packaging is very classy, appealing and eye catching with a transparent see through bottle makes it easier for you to know, how much has been exhausted. 

Texture : Thick flowing consistency, glides on like a butter and absorbs well. Leaving skin soft smooth and silky.

Qty : 236 ml 8 /fl oz

Price : AED 60  


Aspen Caramel Woods :  BBW describes this as Juicy plum and whipped caramel wrapped in bourbon vanilla and jasmine blossom. If you like the smell of Caramel and vanilla then this fragrance smells just that.  I picked up Aspen Caramel Woods b'coz my better half kept inisiting its nice and smells good :), you know how guys are right ! :) . Though I am not a huge fan of caramel or vanilla fragrance but felt there is no harm in trying it out . People who prefer this combination might find the fragrance quiet yum :))

Cashmere Glow : BBW describes this as a warm blend of golden peach and shimmering vanilla with a heart of soft cashmere musk, inspired by being wrapped in luxury. They hit the nail on the head with this apt description.

Fell in love with the fragrance and without wasting much of a time, this was the first that I picked up among the three. The fragrance is little strong when you apply it but settles down after some time.  It smells indeed like a luxury fragrance . The combination fragrance of golden peach and vanilla lingers on you for a longer time. Loved it !!!

Japanese Cherry Blossom : My cousin had gifted me the miniature set of Japanese Cherry Blossom when he had come down from US. BBW describes this as a  fortified with powerful ingredients like super conditioning Shea Butter, fast absorbing Jojoba Oil and protective Vitamin E, hydrates skin with moisture that lasts all day. Our non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and completely to leave skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished, making it the perfect daily moisturizer.

Award winning signature collection - Japanese Cherry Blossom sure wins your heart with its mysterious floral scent. I did loved the miniature so picking up the full size bottle was quiet obivious.  This smells quiet femenine and is much sober than the Cashmere Glow. One of my favorite from BBW. If you like soft sober fragrance then Japanese Cherry Blossom is a must try for you.

SP Rating : 4.5/5

Final Verdict

These are bit expensive then the normal body lotions but worth the money. The range is vast to choose from and you might end up liking many of them  . Hydrates the skin leaving it soft and  silky.  The frangrance lingers on you for a long time.  Highly recommended !!!
