The Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Moisturizing Body Creams line is a line of scent-forward products that claim to address the mind-body issue. These fragrant creams say that they will help with different moods. I was sent three to sample. The three body creams promise that they are “rich, non-greasy” and that they “nourish skin with protective 24-hour moisture, conditioning Vitamin E and shea butter.” An aromatherapy blend of essential oils are said to soothe body, mind, and mood.
Sleep Body Cream Lavender Essential Oil & Vanilla: This cream contains Lavender Essential Oil & Vanilla Absolute, which are said to help calm feelings of stress to promote better sleep.
Stress Relief Body Cream Eucalyptus & Tea: This cream contains Eucalyptus Oil, which claims to clear the mind, and Tea Extract, which claims to calm feelings of uncertainty.
I used all three creams at different points throughout the day and evening. All are excellent products – as promised, rich but not greasy, and delightfully fragrant. But, I didn’t find the mood-altering claims to be substantiated. The vanilla cream was lovely but had no impact on my sleep. The Tea Extract did nothing to calm feelings of uncertainty, a difficult claim to support in any case. The bottom line is that these fragrant creams are excellent products if you leave all the woo-woo talk behind.
This product claims to be non-greasy and gently exfoliating. The scrub contains nourishing oils, including jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, safflower seed oil, mineral oil, and almond oil.
I used this in the shower. The scent was wonderfully invigorating and I liked the brisk, exfoliating quality. However, it is a bit on the greasy side (it has five different oils in it, after all). Also, it tends to separate so it needs to be mixed before applying. Overall, a good, straight forward scrub at a good price point.
