Product Review: Carried Away Body Lotion by Bath & Body Works

Hi guys!

I'm back with yet another post. However this post pertains to a beauty product I've recently purchased so if you're not keen on beauty products, scroll down for my food reviews.

My cousin's girlfriend travels to USA frequently as her work requires her to do so. I managed to ask her to grab a few items for me & one of them was a brand I've once tried and have since been wanting to lay my hands on again.

Bath & Body Works is a US brand that sells a variety of bath, body, spa and home products. I remember my aunt bringing home a bottle of Cherry Blossom about 3 years ago. One whiff and I was transported to Japan. The floral, cherry blossom scent made me feel as though I was walking through a field of blooming cherry blossoms. In all honesty, I think this is how the colour pink would smell like!

Carried Away makes me want to sit in a bed full of soft pillows, delve into a good book with a hot cup of jasmine tea and fairy lights lit up with the voice of Norah Jones serenading me to bliss. It contains several notes like lush raspberries, white jasmine and whipped vanilla.

Pros: If you love floral, vanilla scents you'd LOVE this. I've been using it daily & it never fails to fill my room with hints of vanilla and scented flowers. It's not overpowering, not at all sticky & gets absorbed into the skin easily. I use this every night after my bath and it moisturizes my skin and makes it so daaaaamn smooth. The texture is somewhat thick but doesn't leave a sticky residue, which is a plus point. In it contains shea butter, fast absorbing jojoba oil and protective vitamin E, which hydrates skin with moisture that lasts all day.

Cons: I can't think of any cons at the moment, but I would think this would only be suitable for people who do not have sensitive skin as the scent might be a tad overpowering for sensitive skin types. I wouldn't recommend this for when you travel to colder countries as it isn't strong enough to hydrate the skin.

My verdict?: B&B has definitely gotten themselves a new customer. Although you are unable to find them in Singapore without being ripped off, you are able to purchase them from sprees from online stores like drugstore.com
