Bath and Body Works Review

Bath and Body Works Review

Bath and Body Works is a brand that has always interested me but it is very difficult to get hold of in the UK. Re sellers often ask ridiculous prices on account for “shipping and customs charges” so purchasing from outside of the US is often completely unrealistic. Having only ever tried the Japanese Cherry Blossom products I was keen to try other products from the brand.

So when I was in Florida I of course didn’t miss the chance to pick up some of the range in a few other scents. I’m going to be talking you through some of my first impressions of the things I picked up

Fine Fragrance Mists

I was incredibly lucky to be in the right place at the right time when it came to these sprays. Bath and Body Works were having a $5 on all large sprays which is such a great deal. Usually they retail at $14 so $9 off is definitely worth it. The sprays have failed to disappoint. My favourite is by far the warm vanilla sugar as it is such a comforting smell. I get so many compliments when I wear this and a little goes a long way.  I also picked up A Thousand Wishes which I got as they had sold out of Japanese Cherry Blossom everywhere. It is quite similar to it however I would say that A Thousand Wishes is much less sweet smelling and it is more of a ‘masculine’ smell in my opinion. These sprays are so worth the price and if you are ever in the USA they are so worth picking up.

Travel Sized Mists

These little sprays are perfect for on the go. The deal was 3 for $12.50 which again is a great price as they retail for $6 each. I like the idea of these as you can try out a scent before fulling going for the larger bottle. Also it saves valuable suitcase room! I went for French Lavender and Honey, Magic in the Air and Poolside. The lavender is a very refreshing scent almost reminds me of a melon kind of smell. It is very summery and would work well as a day time perfume. Magic in the Air smells like a real perfume it is an almost floral scent with a hint of vanilla. It is a very light scent but like all of their fragrances lasts all day! Finally Poolside is a sweet citrusy kind of a scent. It is much heavier than the others but is still very pleasant. You really only need one or two pumps as it can become a bit too sickly!

The Pocketbacs are probably one of Bath and Body Works’ most signature product. Again there was an offer on which allowed me to buy 5 for $6. You’ll notice I only have 4 here though as I gave one to my sister. I chose to get the French Lavender PocketBac to match the spray. The scent is exactly the same. All of the PocketBacs leave your hands feeling refreshed and like you have just washed your hands. Sorry I’m Late (such a cute name) has a cinnamon kind of aroma and honestly I was drawn to it as it basically smells exactly like cinnamon buns which I’m slightly obsessed with. The Vanilla Peppermint is from the essential oils range and so has a much stronger and distinctive scent. It smells like something they would use in a spa and who wouldn’t want that in the comfort of your own home. Finally I chose Green Tea as I am the biggest tea addict ever! This one is so nice and refreshing and almost calming.


This pouch is so cute! I was the last one in the shop so I’m so glad I managed to grab it before they all sold out! The picture is so cute and of course it suits my blog so well. It was very reasonably priced at only $5 and I’ll get lots of use out of it. It is currently used to store my pocketBacs and lipbalms. I can’t wait to use it for other things. And if I can’t find another use it will always look good in instagram photos!! Follow me on instagram here.

Hand Cream

Finally I picked up this hand cream. I really couldn’t go to the US and not get a hand cream. Japanese Cherry Blossom is probably my all time favourite scent. Hand creams like this are always so handy to have with you or to throw in your bag. I also prefer the texture of this over the lotions and use it for my legs after I’ve shaved. The cream moisturises my hands well and I know it is going to be a big help in the winter.

That’s all I picked up at Bath and Body Works and if anything this little haul has only fueled my desire for more products. Fingers crossed I’ll be able to get hold of some of the Christmas products this year on Amazon or The Bath and Body Shop!
