So, I went to the mall to get my eyebrows threaded (they were looking mighty wolfish) and I decided to stop by Bath & Body Works while I was there. I saw a post on the Bath & Body Works Facebook page about this new scent and I needed to do a sniff test. One whiff was all it took…
I loved this scent immediately! I’m a lover of all vanilla scents and this new signature collection from B&BW is sweetened by vanilla and berry goodness:
From the Bath & Body Works website:
- Our exclusive Dark Kiss is a seductive blend of dark berries with a kiss of vanilla to unleash your most primal passions
- Key fragrance notes: sensual incense, Mirabelle plum, and night musk
Of course, it not only smells great but it leaves my skin incredibly soft! Since the weather is changing, I’m starting to use thicker moisturizer, so I purchased the Triple Moisture Shower Cream, Triple Moisture Body Cream, and Body Lotion (regular lotion to keep in my shoulder bag). The shower cream is heavenly; as soon as I squeezed some on my body gloves, it lit up the bathroom with its sweetness. By the time I stepped out of the shower, my skin was already soft and smooth; once I applied the body cream, my skin was like buddah (smile)!
The moisturizers used in this collection are as follows: rice bran oil, milk proteins, and acai berry extract. According to Oilseed International Ltd., woman in Japan have traditionally used rice bran or rice bran oil as a way to keep their skin smooth and possibly prevent melanin pigmentation. I gave that last little tidbit a side eye at first, but the website said that the natural oxidant, oryzanol, “intercepts ultraviolet rays at the skin’s surface.” Acai berry is known for its antioxidants and milk protein for its conditioning properties.
I also picked up some of the travel sized items in this collection; gotta be ready for the TSA folks because I refuse to have another one of them confiscate my lotion. I know that woman just wanted that bottle because the lotion smelled so awesome.
That said, I recommend you go to Bath & Body Works, take the sniff test, and pick up this collection while the store is having this great “Buy 2 get 1 free, buy 3 get 2 free” sale. By the way, the travel sized products are 3 for $10. I plan on hitting them up again real soon.
