Bath & Body Works Pearberry

I’ve been organizing my Bath & Body Works collection and I came across Pearberry — which is not quite retired but I suspect it could be soon. You can get Pearberry for 50% on the Bath & Body Works SAS sale!

Pearberry has Anjou Pear, Wild Berries, Apple Blossom, Golden Freesia, Blonde Woods. To me it smells like a pear with a woodsy scent.

This scent reminds me of Spring and Summer which I cam kind of liking because we are buried in snow today!.

Bath & Body Works Gingerbread Latte Is Back for 2017

Last year Bath & Body Works introduced Gingerbread Latte and I was super disappointed that it was not back for 2017. Well much to my surprise (and delight) I found that they now have 3 Gingerbread Latte products on their website including the Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Fine Fragrance Mist. Now if they’d just bring back the sugar shower scrub!

What’s to love?

It smells just like freshly baked gingerbread and coffee. It’s also got a little vanilla and a fruity smell in the mix…it smells good enough to eat and it one of my favorite scents.

According to Bath & Body Works it’s a blend of Santa’s gingerbread, frosted pear & brown sugar.

Bath & Body Works Halloween Wicked Apple Shimmer Fizz Body Lotion

Oh my gosh! The new Bath & Body Works Halloween Wicked Apple Shimmer Fizz Body is like nothing I have ever seen before…and it’s so cool — literally.

This “potion” sprays out fast like Spider-Man’s web, crackles like fireworks and is as cold as the dungeons at Hogwarts. This is some seriously powerful stuff.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got it but here’s the scoop. It sprayed out kind of like a bubbly, fizzy foam then turned my hand ice cold as it was crackling. Once the bubbles subside it turns into a soft shimmery lotion. I love the light sparkles for Halloween.

The scent is forbidden apple, black rose & haunted cinnamon woods which is amazing!

This is such a fun product for Halloween and I am really loving it now.

Bath & Body Works Country Apple Collection

I headed back to the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale today and I picked up 3 items from the 90’s throwback Country Apple because it smells so good, just like fresh apples.

ca

My Bath & Body Works had Country Apple in the Fine Fragrance Mist, Body Lotion, Ultra Shea Body Cream and Shower Gel (not pictured).

The scent has McIntosh Apple, Apple Blossom, Fresh Muguet, Sheer Sunlight, Orchard Woods which is basically all apple! It reminds me a bit of the Yankee Candle McIntosh scent and it’s really fresh.

I’m not sure when Bath & Body Works is getting this scent back so I wanted to stock up and for about $3 each I feel like I got a steal!

Today 6/10 you can get 20% OFF $25 Code: STOCKUP

The Body Shop NEW Almond Milk & Honey Review

The Body Shop has an all new line called Almond Milk & Honey and I picked up the Calming & Protecting Body Lotion and Soothing & Caring Shower Cream this past week.

They also have Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Restoring Body Butter and Gently Exfoliating Cream Scrub.

What’s to love?

The Almond Milk & Honey line is made from organic almond milk and has no colorants, mineral oil or petroleum.  They are also 100% vegetarian and cruelty free. It is formulated for sensitive skin.

The lotion has a nice sweet scent and it feels very moisturizing without being sticky or heavy and I feel like it absorbs quickly into my skin.

The shower cream is so luxurious with the same sweet scent and it’s got a light lather and really does calm my skin. I feel like this would be great if you got too much sun. My mom has sensitive skin and she’s been loving this product and it is so gentle.

Overall I am super impressed with this new line and I’d like to try the Gently Exfoliating Cream Scrub next.

I share a bit about the Almond Milk & Honey line in my Ulta Haul video too!

Aveda Beautifying Body Moisturizer Review

I got a free 1.4 fl.oz. sample tube of the Aveda Beautifying Body Moisturizer when I picked up a new bottle of the Brilliant Conditioner for my mom and I have mixed feelings about it.

I am a huge fan of the Aveda scents and this one is pretty too. It has certified organic shea butter and olive, soy and safflower oils with rosemary, lavender, bergamot and other pure flower and plant essences.

Beautifying is not quite as strong as the Shampure scent but it still has a bite and the scent is a bit different…it kind of smells like earthy, mossy flowers. I can’t decide if I love it yet but I don’t hate it at all.

The creme is very heavy and moisturizing. I feel like this will be great for Fall or when my hands are really dry. I don’t see it as a Summer cream.

Overall I think it’s nice but I don’t think I’d buy the full-sized version as the Rosemary Mint is more of my Aveda favorite.

Bath & Body Works Fiji Pineapple Palm Review

My new favorite scent is the Bath & Body Works Fiji Pineapple Palm. Ironically I am not a huge fan of eating pineapple but I just love this new fresh pineapple scent that’s part of the new Island Edit and these products are infused with coconut oil.

f.jpg

What’s to love?

First up the packaging is so pretty. I just love this Springy shade of green with the birds, palms and pineapples.

The scent of Fiji Pineapple Palm is a combination of Caviar Lime, Palm Leaf, Pear Nectar, Star Jasmine, Tiare Flower, Mango Pulp, Pineapple, Mango Wood, Coconut Milk, Toasted Sugar, Caramelized Birch and Skin Musk. However to me it really just smells like fresh pineapple.

The product line-up is pretty standard with the Shower Gel, Ultra Shea Body Cream, Fine Fragrance Mist and 2 new products.

Fiji Pineapple Palm Sand & Sea Salt Scrub – I have the Sand & Sea Salt Scrub in Oahu Coconut Sunset and I love it. It’s got a great exfoliating girt that leaves me skin so soft. I need to get one in the Fiji Pineapple Sand & Sea Salt Scrub now.

Fiji Pineapple Palm Aloe Gel Lotion – My favorite new product in the line-up is the Aloe Gel lotion. This gel has such a nice silky feel and I think it will be great for Summer. It has aloe, vitamin E and coconut & monoi oils.

I also created a Bath & Body Works Haul that has a few of the Fiji Pineapple Palm products. 

 

Bath & Body Works At The Beach Collection Review

Bath & Body Works has another new collection called At The Beach and it’s so nice for Summer.

What’s to love?

I think At The Beach really is my new favorite scent. The scent consists of Palm Leaves, Coconut Water, Bergamot Splash, Jasmine Petals, Fragipani, Coconut Chips, Salty Amber, White Must and Raw Sugar Cane.

To me this is one of the freshest and mildest scents from Bath & Body Works and it really does have a nice beachy, coconut sea salt fragrance.

I picked up the Ultra Shea Body Cream Shower Gel and 3 new products.

At The Beach Sea Salt Hair Mist – I am so excited that B&BW now has a Sea Salt Hair Mist. I tried it out in my video and it’s very light and my hair looked so shiny. It’s also not sticky or gooey at all.

At the Beach Sand & Sea Salt Scrub – I am so thrilled with these new sand & sea salt scrubs. They mildly exfoliate and leave me skin smooth and soft.

At The Beach Perfume Spray – The spray fits perfectly in a purse or bag and give off a very fine mist of fragrance. I love it.

Bath & Body Works CocoShea Cucumber Collection Review

I am loving the new Bath & Body Works CoCoShea line which consists of 3 scents. Honey, Cucumber and Coconut.

I picked up 2 products from the Cucumber line today and all I can say is…wow, these are fresh.

What’s to love?

The cucumber line really does smell so fresh. I think this one is going to be my new Summer favorite. Here’s what’s in the line.

CocoShea Cucumber Really Refreshing Aloe Gel Lotion – This product is a lotion/gel with a very soothing consistency and because it’s got aloe I can see that it will be great for sunburns too. It has Cocoa Extract, Shea Butter Extract and Cucumber Water and the formula is very light weight. It feels a bit slippery when you first apply it, but then it gets silky. I’m also wondering if it would feel even more refreshing after a little while in the refrigerator.

CocoShea Cucumber Really Refreshing Foaming Scrub – I am such a fan of scrubs and this cucumber one is divine. It’s got a nice rough pumice for cleansing and the gel formula feels so smooth and nice. I used this one on my hand and now they feel so soft.

Also here’s a comparison and demo all three of the CocoShea scrubs on YoutTube.

The CocoShea Cucumber line also includes: Body Lotion, Body Wash and All Over Mist.

Overall I am so excited about having a new cucumber product to add to my beauty routine. This one really is refreshing and cool. Ha! Cool as a cucumber.

I shared my Bath & Body Works CocoShea Haul on YouTube too so do check it out!
