This was just and average gel for me. Nothing different from other gels I have used in the past.
I like to buy the mini 2 oz travel sized products from the bodycology line. They a pretty cheap and only cost around $2.00. It's enough product to see if you really like the product/scent because I tend to be very fickle about fragrance. I got this product in a cream (tube) form instead of lotion. Overally a great product for the price. The sent is not overpowering and the cream is a great hand and body moisturizer.
Candles -Bath and Body Works - Marshmallow Fireside

Great burning candle. Mine did'nt last long because I ended up burning it every day! The 3 wick candle version burned evenly and the scent was not as stong as I liked. The scent of the smells of toasted marshmallows & sweet vanilla cream was there but not in the strength it sould have been for the price.
Got a couple of these sprays about a year a go when they had a past semi-annual sale. They retailed for $15.00 but were 75% off in the store. A great product for the cheap discounted price but I'm also pretty sure they are also now discountined.
This was a nice green floral fragrance. I could only smell the green floral and musk notes when I sprayed this. Its has notes that include tropical greens,tagete absolute, white peach, jasmine, gardenia buds, rose de mai petals, orchid vanille, sandalwood, and musk. I think I picked this up a few years back at a TJ Maxx for less than $10 because its discountinued.
Overall a decent but not great product. This product works okay as a quick touch up and helps smooth out some of the frizz in my hair. The scent reminds me of something from black hair care products that are oil sheen based.
Bath Treatments -The Body Shop - Spa Wisdom - Dreamboat Milk Bath

Just used up the last bit of this and I really love how this product smells. It's a pity that this is discountinued. This bath treatment leaves my skin soft after a long soak.
If you like this scent then you better stock up on this. I think this scent is slowly being phased out of the Blue Q line. I've used this body splash off and on for the past 6-7 years and it's harder to locate these days and it's no longer even available on the Blue Q site. This is a nice peony scent if you are a fan of floral scents.
Styling Products -Organix - Nourishing Coconut Milk Weightless Mousse

I ended up using this product as a foam to reset my curls. The scent of this product is nice but I could of have done the same thing with a spray bottle of water. This product had very little hold factor for me as a hair mousse.This is more of a product for someone who prob doesnt need a high factor of hold or doesnt like that heavy hair product feel in thier hair.
Overall not that great of a product for the price. If you can find this product in the $5-$10 range its a pretty good basic daily lotion with a SPF of 15. But to pay $25 full retail for this is a rip off.
I think this was a limited ed. product. I don't think B&BW carries this scent (Lemongrass Cardamon) in thier aromatherapy line any more. I might have picked this up @ a past semi-annual sale or this ended up being gifted to me. Anyways this scent was a nice and different twist to the classic B&BW stress relief scent. This scent had a zippy note starting because of the lemongrass. This wash worked well as both a shower gel and as a bubble bath.
This shampoo worked pretty ok for me. Like the others they smell was not all that great but like most folks I use a conditioner after I shampoo so thats not really a factor in my opinion. This shampoo was a lot more creamy than others I have used in the past and took out the the dirt and styling product I use in one wash.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - Aromatherapy eucalyptus spearmint sugar scrub
hellokittyfan1974 11/28/2011 2:19:00 AM
Nice sugar scrub but made with cheap ingredients. You could probably make this on your own if you wanted. It's pretty much brown sugar (sugar in the raw), mineral oil (baby oil) & spearmint/peppermint oil . This would be a great scub if it used another type of base oil like olive or sweet almond that will absorb into your skin. Mineral oil is just a cheap filler oil that just sits on the top layer of your skin and doesn't really absorb into your epidermis . This scrub worked well but I expected longer moisturizing benefits from this. It left a minimum coating on my skin & left it soft & fragant but wore off after a few hours.
Overall a great cleanser for anyone who has oily/combination skin types. I've used this product off and on for the past 10 years. I mainly use this in the hotter summer months because it leaves my skin super clean living out in the humid south .
Cleansers -C.O. Bigelow - Gentle Oil Absorbing Clay Cleanser

Not a fan of this one! I got this at a past B&BW semi-annual sale a few years ago and have finally used up the bottle. This stuff burned my skin. I ended up using this on my back and it worked pretty well for that. On my face it left my skin sensitve and red.
