I would love to review a Bath and Body Works Shower Gel today and it is called “Carried Away.” I bought this online and it was one of the very first purchases from Bath and Body Works. I was introduced to this brand by one of my friends who got me some gifts from Hawaii after a holiday.

My Experience with Bath and Body Works Carried Away Shower Gel:
This is my very first shower gel from Bath and Body Works. I purchased this after receiving the mist from the same range from a friend returning after a holiday in Hawaii. I also got some other gifts. This shower gel comes in full size and what I noticed first was the shape of the bottle. Unlike other shower gels which come in straight bottles, this one has a curve shape. This is such a clever idea because we can easily grab this shower gel in the shower.
Additionally, the body lotions also come in similar-shaped bottles. I find this feature very easy to use and helpful.
The second cute thing? Have a look at the label, all I can see and feel is happiness. It has colourful, long-stemmed flowers which spell spring/summer. One of my cousins’ toddler, a two year old, would always try to grab this particular bottle from my shower. I think she is immensely attracted to this bottle because of the labeling. The name of this line is “Carried Away” and when I think of the phrase “Carried Away,” I think of hubby and myself holidaying alone in a tropical island in Tahiti, Cook islands and the likes 😛
The shower gel itself is colourless, even the the bottle is of light blue colour,ocean blue colour. It has a flip top cap and is very easy to get product out, bottle also is very sturdy. The fragrance has raspberry, pear, jasmine and freesia among others and overall is a refreshing sweet girly summer scent. The gel lathers very well and only a small amount is needed each time. After using this shower gel around 8-10 times already, see how much is left. The shower smells very nice for some time after I shower and the scent lingers for a couple of hours on my skin. I of course like to top it off with lotion and mist to reinforce the fragrance.
I am happy with this fragrance line and also this particular gel. I am into floral, girly scents but stay away from “too sweet” scents, which make me feel like a pre teen. This particular shower gel is sweet without being overpowering and I am liking it a lot. It also doesn’t make my skin dry at all even though it lathers well.
Pros of Bath and Body Works Carried Away Shower Gel:
- Cleverly shaped bottle, easy to use in the shower.
- Lathers well, but does not dry skin.
- The lotion and mist/EDT in the same fragrance can be used for layering.
- The fragrance is girly, sweet and extremely refreshing for summer (and spring).
Cons of Bath and Body Works Carried Away Shower Gel:
- Contains a whole lot of chemicals as well as colouring agents.
- Available only in a limited number of countries.
