Bath and Body Works Pure Paradise, Beautiful Day, White Citrus, and Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion, and White Barn Eucalyptus Mint Three Wick Candle.

Hello everyone!!!

Heehee, finally they are here! They are opening their first store at Kota Kasablanca!! I immediately (or at least as fast as I can) went there and shops!!!

Okay truth need to be told, I'm not really a huge fan of Bath and Body Works, I always think they are overrated....NOT! I'm wrong, haha! I fell in love the minute I went into the store and shops like bananas.

-*-



Here are a few of my activity at the shop >.< The first thing that I think worth to be invested is the body lotion. Why? They are made to last on the skin for hours, smells so good and you'll definitely find one or two or all as your favorite scents, make the skin moist without being sticky whatsoever (winning point for sure) and you can build up the scent to last all day with the shower gel, lotion and body spray with the same scent.

Details all from www.bathandbodyworks.com:

America's #1 Body Lotion! Infused with Shea Butter and our exclusive Daily Moisture Complex, our enhanced lotion contains more of what skin loves, leaving it feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished. Fortified with nutrient-rich ingredients like protective Vitamin E and conditioning Vitamin B5, our fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula delivers 16 hours of continuous moisture.

However, if you see carefully, they still contain paraben, boo hoo -.- hopefully in the near future they wont be any more paraben found in any of our skincare and cosmetics ya.

Now, their texture is similar one to another, the one thing that made a big differences, Beautiful Day is like waking up in the middle of a fruit garden (fruit aka green apples) and enjoy the scent of Spring in one go, so it's fresh, fruity and a bit floral at the same time. Perfect for those who are looking for a fresh scent in the morning that keep them chirping up.

Pure Paradise, oh this is my favorite, it smells divine, its floral, a bit of musk but still very fresh and like a hint of paradise squeeze into this bottle.

The combination of the scent is just lovely and they do last for hours and hours but not the whole day. I'm looking forward for them to have the body cream since it is far more moisturizing and the scent will also last longer on my dry skin.

Ohh, this is perfect for a girly girl who loves the scent of a fruity pink floral...with more floral of course.

Alongside, I also get three wick candle.
The Perfect 3-Wick Candle!

Candle comes in beautiful frosted glass to add a hint of seasonal hue to your d├ęcor. Burns approximately 25 - 45 hours and measures 4" wide x 3 1/2" tall.
  • Fresh eucalyptus, spearmint and citrus evoke a brisk walk in cool mountain air
  • Usage:

    Remove dust cover before lighting.

Even when not lid the aroma is just amazing and already fill in the room. The scent itself is like a fresh eucalyptus and really is like how they described at the website, like a cool mountain air and I'm inside one of the cottage on the top. One candle can make the entire 60-75 m2 room smells so good.

Even thou' it is said eucalyptus and mint, they don't necessarily like 'minyak angin', actually really far from it >.~ this is more to the western style 'mountain breeze' that are completed with fluffy white snow in the background.

Overall, Bath and Body Works collection has successfully show me why they are a big hit in the US, their products is definitely smells really good and they do pay attention on details such as making lotions that doesn't feel sticky at all and really fast absorbing with gorgeous signature scents that last like edp.

The collection in Indonesia is far from complete (like how can they fit everything in the store, have you seen the website?!) but I hope they will bring more scents, all the body creams too and more candles please.

The handwash also smells good but considering the price, I'm still opt for the local made ^__^ but someday I'll try the whole series, except the body spray thou'... I have collection of perfumes that wont run out 5-7 years from now and I guess it will kept on adding since I'm a perfume addict.

Bottomline, Bath and Body Works is a brand worth trying (with my full wish of paraben free in the future).
