Yesterday my dad took me to the mall in my search for sunglasses that actually help out my super UV sensitive eyes (more on that later, the expedition was a success!) and on the trek back from Nordstrom we saw a lot of yellow around Bath & Body Works. Well, everybody, you know what that means: drumroll please…. the Hello, Yellow sale! Because my dad is as much a sucker for good smelling things as I am, we had to go in. He disappeared to the wall of colognes and whatnot – did you know they have a version of twilight woods for men? It’s awesome. but anyways, I ended up with a medium sized haul. and the best part? There was a buy $30 of stuff get $10 off thing going on, and I barely made it over. 8 products for $20? Yes please 😀
Here are the photos:
The whole family loves these two – I guess we’re pretty stressed out! I got two bottles of the lotion since we seem to go through a bottle a month, and at 50% off its always good to stock up 😛 . The scent is very herbal and sharp but it has a weird relaxing/ refreshing effect. I don’t feel sleepy after using it but it doesn’t make me hyper either. The eucalyptus is dominant and the mint is kind of a top note. It comes on a bit strong at first, but it mellows out on the skin to a lightish fragrance that actually is pretty relaxing. Bonus tip: the body wash is so foamy that i have used it as a bubble bath during finals and stuff.
Both of these have light summery scents. The grapefruit is pretty much straight up – I can’t smell the wood or musk that’s supposed to be in there. It’s honestly a fantastic scent: sweet but not too sweet or girly nd perfect for spring and summer. The white tea ginger is a very floral scent. The ginger gives it a warm feel but it still seems summery. and of course, the tea smells good.
I love B&BW hand soap. It makes my hands soft, clean, and good smelling. And pretty. You can never beat pretty hands. I’m a big fan of all the variations they have on the basic citrus scent at B&BW. This particular incarnation is a really sweet citrus, like limeade with a little kick. And it feels/acts like lotion on my skin until i rinse it off. I will repurchase these forever. I haven’t done anything to the candle yet because it’s 100 degrees out. On Tuesday we had a freezing thunderstorm. North CA weather is…strange.
That’s all for now!
