Bath and Body Works Comfort Pumpkin Latte & Marshmallow

Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Latte  & Marshmallow
This is the best scent to come out of Bath and Body Works in a while! Comfort is part of the Fall limited edition line up with main notes of pumpkin latte, toasted marshmallow, creamy sandalwood, white ginger and praline musk. Surprisingly this scent is not too sweet or strong for this gourmand scent lover. Pumpkin is a dicey scent with me, since it usually has cinnamon. I don’t detect any in Comfort. It’s sweet and sexy, a little woody, and just feels like a warm and fuzzy scent. I’ve been wearing nothing else for the past week. (shocking, I know!) I have the body lotion, shower gel and body spray. My skin eats this scent right up, so I have to reapply often.
B&BW Comfort Pumpkin Latte and Marshmallow
The shower gel and lotion formulas have been re done since the last time I’ve tried them. They feel more moisturizing, which is always a good thing for my dry skin! There is currently a buy 3 get 2 deal going on at Bath and Body Works, so I’d stock up if you like this scent. I’m guessing it won’t be around long. They also have brought back the ever popular Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, along with some new scents. Orchard is Honeycrisp Apple and Buttered Rum, Autumn is Pear and Cashmere Woods, and Harvest is Plum Moscato and Almond. Do any of those scents sound tempting to you? I wish they’d put out a Honeycrisp Apple Tart (pie or crisp would be good too, I’m not picky!). THAT would be a perfect fall scent!! Have you tried any new scents this fall?

Bath and Body Works Forever Vanilla Rum

BBW-Forever-Red-Vanilla-Rum

Bath and Body Works has released another scent in the Forever collection. Forever Red Vanilla Rum will have you swooning, if you love sultry gourmand scents like I do!

Notes in Vanilla Rum:
vanilla rum & black lily drenched in decadent créme de cassis
Top Notes: Sparkling Mandarin, Créme de Cassis, Black Lily
Mid Notes: Jasmine Petals, Sheer Gardenia, Apricot Nectar
Dry Notes: Rich Vanilla Rum, Seductive Musk, Black Cashmere Woods

I found Vanilla Rum to be quite a soft skin scent without too much throw. Even layering the body cream and edp spray, I had to reapply after a few hours. I don’t really consider that a drawback, just something worth mentioning. This is a limited edition, and I just noticed Bath and Body Works website has the Forever Red Vanilla Rum line for 50% off. You may want to stock up!

Have you tried Vanilla Rum, or any other Bath and Body Works scents lately that you are loving?

Top Notes:

  • bergamot, mandarin, raspberry champagne

Middle Notes:

  • jasmine, gardenia, star anise, apricot nectar, magnolia blossom

Base Notes:

  • creamy vanilla suede, crystallized amber, golden sandalwood, soft  musk


 
Looking at the notes alone, you might think this would be a heady floral. It’s not! It’s absolutely the perfect balance of lightness from the top notes and sweet from the middle notes, while the base notes make Amber Blush seductive and playful! I found when I layered the scent it lasted most of the day for me as well.

At the store I was informed that the formula has changed, and it contains more shea. Honestly, I couldn’t tell a difference. Then again, I didn’t find anything wrong with the previous formula! I will say I’m not a big fan of the new shower gel and body lotion bottle shapes. It’s just looks akward to me. And the cap is too square, but that is just my taste. It’s what’s inside that counts, right?!

Have you switched up your fragrance to anything different now that the season has changed? I love being able to wear different scents for different seasons! If you’ve tried anything new to you or different, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!

Bath and Body Works - true blue spa

I recently had some coupons and freebies from Bath and Body Works. Since I have been all about doing my nails lately, and my hands are so super dry and uncomfortable, I snagged a few beauties from the True Blue Spa line.

I got the 60 second manicure hand scrub, Paraffin super softening hand lotion and raspberry mojito cream gel. The hand scrub is a 5oz jar that I can imagine will last me for a while. It’s a sugar scrub, in a gel like base. Glycerin and shea butter are high on the list of ingredients.  My skin loves both of these. This is a really pampering treat to use on my hands. They were so soft after! Its scent is citrusy and light. I used the hand lotion after drying. I’ve used this paraffin lotion before, and I love it! It’s very moisturizing and rich, without being greasy.It has olive, apricot and avacado oils, along with shea butter. The scent is light and pleasant, citrusy to my nose.

The raspberry mojito cream gel is quite a unique product! It feels very lightweight, and almost sticky when you first apply. it. It sinks in immediately and there’s no more tackiness! It smells divine, like a raspberry mojito! The scent is light and not overwhelming at all. My skin stayed suprisingly soft and moisturized all day with this. My skin is very dry, and I was pleasantly surprised that this worked so well!

I’d highly recommend the Bath and Body Works true blue spa for a pampering mani/pedi at home! :)

I would love to see Bath and Body Works come out with a cuticle butter or two!!

Have you tried anything from the true blue spa line? What did you think?
