Waaay too sweet. It smells a lot like hard candy, and I'm not looking to attract ants, so no thanks.

Somehow at first spray it reminded me of scented pads, but it was something I could get over with because that fades quickly after spraying it, to a nice musky scent. Perfect for nights, or if you just want to cuddle up at home with something/someone comfortable. It's a pretty good scent, it doesn't smell cheap to me, and I have nothing to say against it, but there's nothing really new about this.
I have both the body mist and the EDT, as well as the body lotion as presents, and there is quite a difference on them. The mist is nice, but it gets a little too sweet after a while. The EDT, however, has more to it that makes it soft, cuddly and feminine. The mist has only a monotonous scent, but if you want to fully appreciate this scent, I suggest to go for the EDT instead. Out of all BBW fragrances, this is my second favourite next to Cashmere Glow.
Absolutely one of my favorites! This has a soft velvety scent that has smooth and warm tones. I also have the body lotion, but for some reason, all I smell is the chemicals. I let a few other people try the lotion, and they all liked it. So I thought I was missing something, so I decided to get the body mist instead. And wow, did I ever miss it. This is a really comfy cuddly sweet and sexy scent that'll make you feel really nice and tingly inside. I have the body mist, and unlike the other BBW mists, this one lasts all day, doesn't fade easily.

After spraying it on for the first time, I quickly smelled that play dough smell and was disappointed. I thought I wasted my money. But once it dried down, it completely went away and got something unexpected. The dry-down has a soft creamy scent that's comforting and gentle without smelling like cheap perfume. This scent is a light, casual smell and never overpowering. It's smells really good that I spray it on myself at home just so I can get a constant whiff! My boyfriend likes it too, and I could safely say this scent is guy approved, based on others reviews too. I will repurchase for sure. I'm only giving this a 4 because of the lasting power, and that they really should sell this in-store.
Lotions/ Creams -Desert Essence - Vanilla Chai Hand and Body Lotion

This has a really strong scent and I barely smell the vanilla, but a lot more of the chai. But that aside, it moisturizes pretty well. I use it on my hands at home to keep my hands from getting too dry.
This stung my face right when I applied it when I first bought it. So I washed it off right away. Decided not to throw it out, and about almost a year later, I thought I'd give it another shot. It stung like it did, but I kept it on, and the feeling went away completely after a few minutes. I washed it off and applied my usual cream on, and noticed my face was GLOWING. I expected red spots or something, but it definitely did its job. Just get past the stingy feeling, since it's only temporary, you'll be happy with the results. Don't rely on this for the exfoliating properties though, because the oats won't do that. Definitely repurchasing.

A friend recommended this to me, so I bought it on sale just to try it out so I got the travel sized one. And now I regret not getting the bigger one since it's one of my favourite scents. I had to get out of my way to buy the regular size online because it was already sold out in-store! It has a nice vanilla scent that's quickly taken over by a sweet caramel scent. I advise to spray a few times or it'll be too strong. I'm not sure if it's different for everyone but it lasts for 3-4 hours on me. It's definitely something to wear on a cool to chilly day, and not for warm days. It'll be too strong and nauseating. So if you like sweet scents, I'd recommend this one.
It has a very light musky scent... that's about it.. I can't find anything special about this perfume. It goes away after a few hours, or at least I can't smell it because it's too faint. There's nothing brilliant or terrible about this product.
Great product! I have very stubborn skin. It likes to get dry, and flaky and red and all nasty. I've tried many many other moisturizers, but this one is spot on. You only have to use a tiny tiny bit, and it hydrates your face so well. The little paddle that comes with it makes up for the container, so I doubt it's anything to worry about. The only thing I'm worried about is the lack of SPF, but if it keeps my skin tame, then it's all good in my book!
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Mango Body Butter
PetuniaCom 1/30/2012 11:21:00 AM
It doesn't exactly smell like mango, but at least it doesn't smell bad either. Unfortunately, it was way too greasy for me to use as a body butter. I felt as if I showered myself with oil. But I can see how this could be good for super dry skin and for winter, because it moisturizes so much. I would suggest to use it before bed or only areas that are dry and flaky.
Alcohol-free? Yes please! I have normal skin, but my face is dehydrated, and I've tried so many to rehydrate my skin, and this has been the answer so far. It cleans my face, it doesn't sting, and so far my face is getting less and less dry after a few months of use. I can't find anything negative about this product.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Moringa Body Butter

Best body butter from The Body Shop. It smells great, not strong, but not too invisible. If you're into floral scents, I recommend this one. I also like how it doesn't get all over the place, it's not runny at all, it stays in place, but it's not too hard either. It also moisturizes my skin all day. I'd always get compliments wherever I go about the scent. It would be great if they made a perfume with this scent.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Pink Grapefruit Body Butter
PetuniaCom 1/23/2012 8:23:00 AM
I would NEVER touch this product again. Why? Because when I used it on the first day, and happened to be near someone, they would always get this twisted look on their faces. My boyfriend thinks it smells like sour body odour (I shower everyday, ty. And I don't normally sweat.), and my coworkers think I smoke weed (I don't.). When I'm in the bus, I would get eyes on me. Not the filrty kind. More like the did-she-get-too-close-to-a-skunk look. I try to use it around the house when I'm alone just to finish the product, so the smell doesn't get out. Not only that, the consistency is even almost too watery. I find it more runny than the Mango Body Butter they have.
I decided to buy this product because I thought it smelled like real grapefruit, and thought it was amazing. The consistency didn't bother me much, I thought I could live with it. So I went ahead and bought it. Tried it on the next day and its true colours unfolded. Never again.
