BBW mainly has bath and body products (shower gels,bubble bath,body cream and lotion...),home fragrances,candles,body fragrances,soap and sanitizers.With every fragrances,they offer different beautiful package.So choosing and picking up one of thousands of products may be difficult.At least for me because I live in Vietnam so most of the shop is online shopping,so the package of the products and reviews are the main factors for me.Today I'll do review only on the scents I love and hate for the last years and they are some Shower Gels and PocketBac Hand Sanitizers.
Black Raspberry Vanilla.This shower gel has an amazing smell of berries I suppose.I have a terrible nose problem which get me allergic to most fragrance but I just can't get enough of this one.The smell is really musky,slightly harsh but still comforting.The most fantastic thing is that it lingers on your skin hours later your shower.It is one of those get you the feeling "where is this smell coming from? It is really niceeee, Oh its the shower gel I toke this morning".There are not many comments on this scent on the BBW website so I don't know whether others like it or not.But as for me and my mom,we love it.
Pocketbac Sanitizing Hand Gel
As for these 2 Hand Sanitizers which I adored,they are the best sellers in the PocketBac Hand Sanitizer collection.The Midnight Pomegranate has the combination of pomegranate and spices,maybe abit of berries also.Really good smell suitable for the colder chiller weather.This scent has been my number one favorite hand gel since the very start of my addiction to BBW.Even when i love the scent,I can't find the same interest in the shower gel,it smells pretty much the same,but does not leave anything on my skin after 5 minutes.The link to the whole line is here http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=4304643&cp=4090260.4090355
Japanese Cherry Blossom-$1,75
The Japanese Cherry Blossom is also a really nice scent,first impression for me was that the alcohol smell is quite harsh.But then leads to a nice unique floral scent.I have to say very warm and floral if that makes sense.Actually I got to try the body lotion of this fragrance before and I like it a bit better because it doesn't have the harsh smell of alcohol at the beginning and also the smell is fresher.I also like the old packaging much better and you can find the whole line here
So I enjoy most of the BBW products,but above that,there is 2 fragrances that I found no interest in and lets talk about why.
Forever Red $6 more than regular shower gels,actually the only one more expensive with the same amount of product (295ml).But I found lots of interest in this fragrance since one customer on BBW website said that "if you love Black Raspberry Vanilla then you'll love this".And so I decided to gave it a go.The packaging is cute,different than others,but surely not as luxury as in the picture.It appears in much more deeper plastic red bottle but still nice.As for the quality of the product,I found no change in the lathering and moisturizing texture.The scent is really sweet,even from the smell only,I can sniff the scent of lots of strawberries,and then deeper scent of some other fruits and flowers and specially alcohol.Just slightly like Rum ice-cream for me,actually is really nice.So don't get me wrong,I like the scent,it is just the price is too high compare to other products.Forever red $6 more expensive,I don't think I'll repurchase it,at least for the shower gel.Just too much for "not so different product".
Sweet Pea.I don't like this scent simply because it causes me a terrible headache.I don't know why,maybe it is too sweet for my taste or lets say too girly.I gave it to one of my best friend and she loves it.Many other customer love it too,so i guess this is just me.If you like sweet,really sweet,girly floral scent then try it.It is indeed one of the classic fragrance of BBW.
