My Experience with Bath & Body Works Comfort Pumpkin Latte & Marshmallow Shower Gel:
The packaging of BBW products are wonderful to say the least. Those who are fond of cute packaging can pick them up without thinking twice just by looking at them. This one has the marshmallow and pumpkin pictures which gives a warm cozy feel. The cap is convenient for in-shower usage and dispenses the right amount of product. Though I always prefer a pump bottle but this one can be forgiven owing to the overly cute packaging.
The texture is thick jelly like, unlike most of the shower gels available in the market. You can use a loofah or use it by itself. Initially it might feel a bit thick but once rubbed in, it produces enough lather to give a comfortable shower. There is no slimy feeling after washing off the gel. Instead you are left with super clean hydrated skin. You need to apply lotion but you do not have to rush for it; does not make the skin stretchy.
Now coming to the best part, the fragrance. What can I say; it is like baking a pumpkin pie on a chilly evening with latte to accompany you all the way. This is so warm and sweet I tend to forget the winter is not yet here; in fact I can use this whenever I miss the chill here in Chennai. The staying power of the smell is approximately an hour or so. I believe the stay can be improved with lotion/cream and mist from the same range, layering does the job.
Overall it is a sweet smelling shower gel and not for the people who like fruity or floral fragrance. Food lovers will be super happy with this one. Am glad I got this and I am already getting one for my sister as well.
