I have been an ardent fan of Bath and Body Works products, but unfortunately, it’s difficult to get most of these here in India. I really don’t know how they come up with different combinations for their skin products as the same way we do trial and error in the kitchen. So, this time around, it was their spice range that intrigued me. They say that it works best when it’s been used with the entire range i.e. Body Oil, Body scrub, Body Wash and Body cream, and so I picked up four of their products. Not that I was a big fan of their smell, but I thought I should give it a try.
$15.50 for 8 oz.(226g).
Made with natural Peppermint essential oil which refreshes the senses & European olive oil, which nourishes the skin, our ultra-moisturizing body cream intensely provides beautiful fragrance, and all day, all night hydration.
Our Olive Oil Body Cream intensely hydrates skin for 24 hours of continuous moisture.
Fragrance: This body cream has a very nice and pleasant aroma. I am not able to catch the notes as it’s a mix of a lot of things. Just an assumption that it might be the mix of peppermint and bergamot (Frankly speaking, I haven’t seen or smelt it).
Packaging: This comes in a fuss-free plastic tube with a flip top cap and is very convenient to use and carry. I love the colour of the packaging. It’s a beautiful bottle green coloured tube with product description in white and pink. The cap is quite secure and hence there is no chance of product leakage. It’s a huge tube so not really travel-friendly.
My Experience with Bath and Body Works Mint Leaf and Bergamot + Natural Peppermint Oil Body Cream with Olive Oil:
This cream has a medium consistency, not too thick nor too runny. It’s a lightweight cream which doesn’t leave your skin greasy and that’s the best part of this range. The body creams have just the right consistency to not make your skin greasy, but at the same time, it provides enough and more moisturization. Since it has essential oils in it, you need not invest in anything additional like a body oil for pre-shower. This does the job of that too. It blends in well and gets absorbed so easily on the skin. It provides a nice sheen to the skin leaving it soft, supple, hydrated and moisturised.
The cream has an uplifting combination of lemon, bergamot, cardamom, and peppermint. It is made with natural peppermint essential oil which refreshes the senses and European olive oil that nourishes the skin. All in all, a complete savior for dry skin. This ultra-moisturizing body cream provides mild yet beautiful fragrance and as mentioned earlier, not able to catch the notes since there’s a blend of too many things. This not only provides pampering, but also provides hydration throughout the day and night.
I have dry and sensitive skin and this provides me super conditioning and moisturisation that I need. It also instantly pampers my super dry areas like knees, cracked heels and elbows too. It works across all seasons, and did a brilliant job even during the dry winter months.
