My Experience with Bath and Body Works Bourbon Strawberry and Vanilla Body Lotion:
Packaging: The body lotion comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a bright pink cap dispenser. The packaging has cute strawberries and vanilla flowers on it. Totally a summery, girly packaging. The 3 fl oz bottle is very handy and travel friendly. It also comes in a bigger variant.
Fragrance: This one is a lovely combination of fruity and floral. I don’t like overtly fruity fragrances which make you feel like a fruit basket. On me, this smells like the right amount of strawberry, peach and jasmine. Vanilla is discernible only as time passes, but that is not surprising because it is a dry note. Some of the fruity fragrances tend to be just too sweet. I love that this is not one of those fragrances. It is not overwhelming on the senses and settles down to a pleasant fragrance. A wonderful option for summer months.
Texture and Performance: The body lotion has a slightly runny consistency which is typical of lotions. It spreads easily on the skin and also gets absorbed easily. It moisturizes well and does not leave the skin grease or sticky. It has Shea Butter and Vitamin E in the ingredients and those are surely good for the skin. The lotion will be perfect for the summer months. But you will be better off using the body cream in winters or if you have extremely dry skin.
Pros of Bath and Body Works Bourbon Strawberry and Vanilla Body Lotion:
- Nice combination of floral and fruity fragrance.
- Fragrance does not come across as too strong or too overwhelming.
- Moisturizes well.
- Non greasy.
- Gets absorbed easily in the skin.
- Attractive and sturdy packaging.
Cons of Bath and Body Works Bourbon Strawberry and Vanilla Body Lotion:
- Might not be suitable for extremely dry skin.
