This has been my HG fragrance throughout last fall, winter, and early spring. It really smells like a cold, blustery day at the beach near where I live. And in a good way. It could easily be worn by someone of any gender. The scent stays close to my skin and is therefore perfect for wearing to work. I layer it over the Jo Malone Body Creme of the same fragrance to make it last an entire day …Read more

Just finished my 3-lb bag of this epsom-salt soak. I used about 1 lb (2 cups) per bath. The bag says it contains bergamot and sweet orange essential oils. I found the fragrance to be like a salty orange, which is much better than it sounds. Very refreshing. The salts are light pink in color but don't really color the bath water. And they dissolved well, leaving just a bit of grit in the tub …Read more

I don't like pink. But I really, really like this polish shade! It's a true, light/medium candy pink. Not as neutral as one would usually consider for a corporate environment, which is what I was shopping for. But the beiges and greys looked too blah to me and I wanted something brighter. It's just fine for the office. It applied almost opaque with one coat, and just right with two …Read more

This conditioner is OK and nothing special. The price is exorbitant for a conditioner whose third ingredient is cheap, non-water-soluble dimethicone that will cause build-up over time. The fragrance is light and not offensive, like a light floral. I won't rush to repurchase but would consider buying if on sale to rotate with my other conditioners.

This is OK shampoo. I've avoided AVEDA due to not liking herbal fragrances in general. But my salon had it on sale and suggested that I try. The fragrance isn't offensive and is rather light. Maybe a bit floral? I was surprised at how well it lathered, then surprised again upon realizing it contains sulfates. I tend to avoid sulfates and assumed that this expensive, organic product …Read more

I bought this bubble bath along with the Patchouli & Sweet Orange version on impulse at my grocery store. The single-use packet only cost about $2 USD. Amazing bargain seeing as it contains essential oils and does not contain synthetics, parabens, or petroleum. And cruelty free. I didn't love the fragrance as much as the more complex Patchouli & Sweet Orange fragrance. This one is …Read more

This was an impulse at my grocery store and ended up being a pleasant surprise. If memory serves me right, I paid a little more than $2 USD. It's as good as a LUSH bath bomb in every way. I like that a faint orange & patchouli scent stayed on my skin for several hours after my bath. Will repurchase.

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - True Blue Spa Lay It On Thick Body Cream (unscented)

I had to laugh while reading the other reviews for this body cream - it really is body butter in a tube! And that's my favorite thing about it. I need a thick, rich body butter for my dry hands and feet in the winter. And I don't like having to scoop said product out of a tub because that's not hygienic. So the flip-top tube is great for me. I would not use it during the day as …Read more

This needs to not be a limited edition. It's not easy to find a shimmer lotion that isn't too glittery and doesn't smell like super-strong floral perfume. This one has a fine, gold shimmer that is just right for my legs. It's moderately moisturizing and not too sticky. And it has a sweet vanilla fragrance that mostly dissipates after an hour or so. I'd repurchase after …Read more

One of my new favorite winter candle scents! It's really just like hot chocolate with marshmallows. The throw is strong and goes beyond the room I'm burning it in. The candle doesn't smoke much (I keep the wicks trimmed), and it should easily last more than 40 hours based on how much I've burned thus far. Hopefully B&BW won't discontinue this scent!
