Two weeks ago there was a massive clearance at Bath & Body Works (Buy 1 Free 1, 70% off) that got so many Malaysian beauty bloggers raving!
At the very same time, I was invited to gather with the BBW team at their Mid Valley Store, to be acquainted with the latest Love & Sunshine range. BBW is pretty new in Malaysia, only opening their first store in Nu Sentral Mall KL towards the end of last year and they have now quickly expanded to several states within Malaysia under the Valiram group umbrella (the very same people who brought Victoria's Secret, Charles & Keith, Pedro among others to Malaysia).
I must confess, I have not stepped into any BBW stores prior to this mini gathering (in fear that I may overspend and do my wallet unwanted damage!). I only walked pass by their stores every time when I'm in Mid Valley (I go to MV alot!), refraining myself from stepping in because my fellow beauty blogger friends kept showing off their bargain hauls! (shame on you girls, for tempting a poor soul like me!)
Then the day came when my desire was fulfilled because BBW contacted me to review their products!
(You have no idea how long I have waited for this!)
So far I have been using some from the Love & Sunshine range and here's my thoughts!
✩⃛( ͒ ु•·̫• ू ͒)
1. Shea & Vitamin E Shower Gel RM62 -10oz/295ml
I use this practically every day since two weeks ago and I have been loving it! I feel that this body wash is more gentle and it doesn't dry out the skin. It does create lots of bubbles after come in contact with water. Good for people with dry/sensitive skin because if its Shea and Vitamin E properties. However the colour is "too yellow" for my liking (I'm not a yellow fan huhu). It smells a lot like sweet happy flowers especially after shower. Repurchase definitely! (but only if it's on offer because I cannot bring myself to pay so much for shower gels.... yet!)
2. Shea & Vitamin E Body Lotion RM62 -8oz/236ml
It doesn't leave any sticky residues YAY! Easy to absorb into the skin. Smells like a bunch of sweet happy flowers, may be overpowering for some who is not the bubbly type haha! But price factor really brings a lot of con :(
3. Fine Fragrance Mist RM70 -8oz/236ml
Honestly I'm not in love with this product. It has a "budget" scent to it and doesn't make me feel luxurious. Can't really blame it because it's not exactly a perfume/EDT/EDP. The bottle is made of cheap plastic and looks like it is easily dentable (if there's such a word!). If you're looking for a long lasting scent, this isn't going to cut it either.
