Website: Bathandbodyworks.com

Ingredients:



Product Description:

Fresh and juicy. Clean and crisp. Cucumber and honeydew melon are a perfect pairing in this cool, collected scent.


Actual Product Pic:


Texture & Scent:


This lotion is a little thicker than the usual body lotions. Because of this, it takes abit longer to sink in. In this hot an humid weather, this perhaps is not very ideal unless you're in an air conditioned room! lol! This one smells just like a fresh slice of honeydew melon! I really liked this one at the beginning, but i quickly got sick of the scent! :P

Packaging:


This lotion comes in a squeeze bottle with a flip top cap! I personally do not like the cap though, because the lotion will get stuck in the cap and congeal there if i don't use it for sometime!

The flip top cap:



They've repackaged this one! Now it looks like this:



Time Test:
This lotion takes about 10-15 minutes to sink in, and my skin feels moisturized for the entire night after that. The scent lasts the whole day too! :D

Price & Availability:
This lotion is priced at US$9.50 (approx. RM34.20), which i feel is rather reasonable for the quality you're getting! Sadly, this is not available in Malaysia! It can be bought at all Bath & Bodyworks outlets and their website (They have amazing offers like buy 3 free 3 going on sometimes too!). It's also available at certain Watsons outlets in Singapore for $19! :)

Usage:
I usually use this at night before bed as a night moisturizer! :)


My $0.02:

I've probably said this many times, but i really wish that Bath and Bodyworks would open a store here!! They have so many scents to choose from, and the price ain't too bad either! :D

This lotion is slightly more moisturizing than the Cotton Blossom one, which is great! Unfortunately the scent started to bother me after awhile... it almost seemed too sweet! lol! :D Because of that, i won't be repurchasing this one. But be assured that i will definitely check out the other scents if i could! :D

  1. Sounds yummy smelling. I like that it's long lasting too, unlike most scented moisturizers.

  6. i agree! the scent of B&BW products are excellent! i loaded them up (A LOT) in my US trip 2 years ago (with 50% sale I just had to :P)

    But it doesn't moisturize that well when I used it in US (some time in May, change of season to summer, but still a tad bit chilly), it absorbs into the skin very fast, and then next hour, you had to re-apply. I was already using the Cream version (should've bought the Butters). But otherwise, Creams works just as fine as lotion here in our hot, humid weather :)

  8. SerraQual: icic! Thanks for sharing!! I personally think that the lotion is abit too heavy already for our tropical climate... but seems like its not sufficient for the dry and cold air over in the states ya! :D
