So, let’s see how this product fared for me.

My Experience with Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Cream:
The Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla comes in a stunning shiny black plastic tube with flip cap. The cap closes with the click. The packaging is sturdy and leak proof. The tube is very travel friendly. This tube has a beautiful white vanilla flower and raspberry graphic design in the front and the back is listed with all the ingredients and claims.
The fragrance is specified as “addictive and alluring,” which is a perfect description. The cream smells delicious with vanilla and berry scent. The scent comes out very fresh and musky. You can easily smell the vanilla and blackberry notes when you first apply the cream on the skin. As the fragrance settles, you will notice the scent of musk. The fragrance lingers for 4 to 5 hours after which it fades.
The cream has a dense texture and is white in colour. The creams spreads evenly on the skin and gets absorbed instantly. It leaves my skin soft and supple and not greasy. This body cream has the goodness of Shea Butter, Aloe Butter and Cocoa butter which makes skin soft, smooth and hydrated. I usually use the cream twice a day i.e. after my morning bath and before night time for moisturizing my skin. The body cream stays on the skin for about 6 hours, so I don’t feel the 24 hours claim holds true.
Overall, I am really happy with Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla body cream.
