Ingredients

My Experience with Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sensual Black Currant Vanilla Body Cream:

The body cream comes in a handy maroon tube packaging with a flip-top matte black cap. The details about the cream are mentioned on the body of the tube. Considering the consistency of the cream, the packaging seems handy and user friendly, more so for clumsy people like me. It is slightly bulky to travel with.

The texture of the body cream is like a fluffy mousse-cream which melts into a lotion-like consistency when massaged on to the skin. It does not feel sticky or oily at all and gets absorbed into the skin in about a minute or so. For a body cream, I feel that is pretty impressive as mostly they tend to sit on the skin, taking a long time to get completely absorbed.

The fragrance is oh-so-delicious! I am the biggest fan of vanilla fragrance, and I love the warmth of the fragrance more in the winters. The black currant smell is slightly subdued by the overpowering vanilla fragrance, and I am liking it this way.

The cream keeps the skin moisturized for good 9-10 hours and the fragrance stays for more than 5 hours. With using products from the same range, the staying power of the fragrance can be doubled up for sure. People with dry skin might need more frequent application, but for my normal skin (body), this works just fine. Regarding the sensuality claim, I think it depends and varies from person to person, but this definitely relaxes me and gives a resting feel to the senses.

Pros of Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sensual Black Currant Vanilla Body Cream:

  • Tube packaging.
  • Gorgeous smell.

Cons of Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sensual Black Currant Vanilla Body Cream:

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sensual Black Currant Vanilla Body Cream?
Repurchase – YES!
Recommend – only if you like vanilla like crazy, the smell is overpowering, so it might bother your nose if you are not fond of sweet caramel–y fragrance.
