Fresh and light. These adjectives come to mind the first time I smelled Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves Body Lotion. The airy scent of this lotion and the heat of the summer season create good balance to me.

My Experience with Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves Body Lotion:
Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves Body Lotion is packaged in a transparent plastic bottle with silver plastic cap. It comes in two sizes. The bigger one has 236ml of product in it. The one I have is the smaller one which has 88ml of lotion in it and which I find very convenient to bring on a vacation or on a travel.
The lotion itself is white in color. It is very easy to apply and to blend on skin. It is absorbed fast and is very lightweight on skin. It was able to relieve dryness on my skin upon application. My skin is less dry during the summer when I use this particular lotion. I usually use this midday before going out and at the end of the day, when I check my feet and knees which are the driest part of my body, they are still moisturized.
Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves’ scent reminds me of the scent of a forest after a downpour. I live in a place where tropical forests are just 5 minutes drive away. So I am kind of familiar with forest freshness. Some portions of forests are made into parks where people can enjoy nature’s wonder. I visit that place few days in a month and this lotion reminds me of the joy I feel on that park. Rainkissed Leaves leans towards “nature” scent, perfect to use on warmer days.
The scent reminds me of water, rain, dew, grass, leaves, forest and garden. I find the scent unisex. It is not the floral type of scent and not too feminine. The smell stays the whole day on my skin and I love that it is not overpowering.
Bath and Body Rainkissed Leaves Body Lotion – What I like:
-I super love nature fresh scent. It’s a lovely spring and summer scent. =)
-It is absorbed fast by the skin.
-It is light on skin, not sticky or greasy.
-Scent stays all day long.
-It leaves my skin moisturized, soft and smooth.
– Some find this expensive but I consider this product as a lotion and perfume in one, so price of around $15 for a full size bottle is reasonable to me. Small size bottle costs $5.
Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves Body Lotion – What I Don’t like:
-It has no SPF.
I find it true that a certain scent brings back memories of events and people in our lives. Whenever I smell this Bath and Body Lotion, I remember happy memories I had with my son playing in a tropical forest. Whenever I smell Eclat, I was reminded of my mom. What scents remind you of special events in your life? I read that it is proven that olfaction or sense of smell is connected with memory. The olfaction nerve lies close to area of the brain associated with emotional memory.
So wherever we are going, whoever we are meeting, we can make an impression through the scents we wear. Be remembered by wearing a lovely scent. It will make them think of you dearly and the special day they spent with you. =)
Always wear beauty!
