A Lovely You – Makeup Tips for Every Woman

Posts Tagged ‘Bath and Body Works

I have a serious affection for Bath & Body Works – an affection that has lasted for years, ever since my first experience with their line of body mists when I was 12 years old. I’m 25 now, and my love for the brand hasn’t wavered.

For today’s post, I decided to take a walk down memory lane and highlight my favorite Bath & Body Works scents. Here they are, in no particular order. Also, I neglected to mention one of my favorites (Velvet Tuberose) because it is no longer available. All of the scents I’ve mentioned below, however, are still available for purchase.

1. Pearberry

Pearberry is a classic B&B scent, and was my first experience with the brand. I recently purchased it again because it conjures so many memories for me! It’s fruity and sweet without being overpowering, and I constantly receive compliments when I wear it.

2. Japanese Cherry Blossom

I’ve loved this scent for a long time, and I really enjoy the floral aspects of this fragrance. I especially love layering the shower gel, lotion and mist for fragrance that lasts nearly all day.

3. Moonlight Path

Something just screams “sexy” to me about this fragrance, so I’ll wear it when I want to feel flirty and a wee bit seductive. It’s not overpowering, but I do notice it’s stronger than some other B&B scents.

4. Country Apple

One of their classic scents, I always jump on the opportunity to buy it when it’s available. I lamented the loss of this fragrance for years when they first discontinued it, but now that I know it’s back I couldn’t resist picking up the spray and the lotion. It smells fresh and crisp and just absolutely delicious.

What are your favorite Bath and Body Works scents? Please tell me about them in the comments; I’d love to hear!



In no particular order, here are the products I’m currently loving this month.

1. NYC Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain

It doesn’t last for 16 hours on me, but it does last for a pretty long time – I’ve been able to eke out 5-6 hours of decent wear before I feel like reapplying. Plus, I love how the color is buildable from a sheer flush to a more intense shade. The marker-style applicator is also a bonus and makes this stain super easy to apply and use.

2. NYX Powder Blush in Angel

Typically, I use cream or gel blush, but this budget-friendly powder blush from NYX is GORGEOUS on me. It goes on sheer, but you can build the color until you achieve your desired result. I have fair skin, so this pinky blush leaves a sheer wash of color that’s very flattering.

3. Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist

An old favorite of mine, I’ve renewed my love for this fragrance and have been wearing it almost daily since the end of last month. I like to layer my matching shower gel and lotion with this mist so I’m wrapped in yummy scents all day long.
