Hello beautiful ladies,
This is again a Bath and Body Works product and yes, again from the “Frosted Winter Woods” range. 😉 It is their 24-hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream. I picked up the body lotion, body cream and fragrance mist from this range. Honestly, I picked this product up even before I sniffed it. Yes, the super lovely packing lured me towards itself and the tube was in my shopping bag even before I took a sniff at it. 😛

My Experience with Bath and Body Works Frosted Winter Woods 24-hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream:
Isn’t the packaging tempting? 😛 As I told you all, I picked this up even before checking out the scent. I was literally bowled over by the beautiful packing. Bath and Body Works Frosted Winter Woods 24-hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream comes in a shiny green tube which has a flip top cap. The cap closes with a click. The tube has graphics of pine trees and oranges on it with the glittery snowflakes. The glitter on the tube makes it perfect holiday packing and the tube surely looks nothing less than a gift.
The fragrance is a fresh citrus scent which has some woody notes which make it an appropriate winter scent. The top notes are fresh and crisp and festive. 😉 Initially, when freshly applied, the fragrance was stronger than the body lotion, but it faded quickly, quicker than the lotion; just in a couple of hours. Also, the top notes disappear in notice giving way to more sweeter notes with just a hint of citrus (which smells more like lime to me).
The cream is white in color and has a really thick texture; however, it spreads easily and evenly, and is easy to apply. I generally apply it just after the shower, on my damp skin, and it absorbs well. It leaves my skin soft and smooth and not greasy. Coming to the 24-hour claim, it would stand true for those who have normal skin. However, since I have super dry skin, I usually reapply moisturizer while going to the bed. This cream does hold good for 10-12 hours or so for me, only my super dry feet need a reapplication in around 6-7 hours, which is quite okay since that is the case with most of the lotions or creams, but I feel that the cream is less moisturizing than the body lotion from the same range.
Pros of Bath and Body Works Frosted Winter Woods 24-hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream:
- Non-greasy texture.
- Very beautiful packaging.
- Contains moisture-rich ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter.
- Absorbs quickly.
- Lovely fragrance.
Cons of Bath and Body Works Frosted Winter Woods 24-hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream:
- My super dry feet need a reapplication after 6-7 hours.
- Not available in travel size.
- Less moisturizing that the body lotion from the same range.
- The fragrance stays for just around 2 hours.
Would I Repurchase Bath and Body Works Frosted Winter Woods 24-hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream?
Well, I guess no! Though I love the top notes and I am a fan of citrus fragrances, but I do not like it that much once it dries, so I might not pick it again, but I would recommend it to you if you like a mix of citrus and sweet fragrances.
