My thoughts: Bath & Body Works Island Escape

My thoughts: Bath & Body Works Island Escape

by on April 15, 2017 · 13 comments

A few months ago my wonderful mom sent me a box full of the new Bath & Body Works Island Escape Collection and now that I’ve been using it for awhile I thought I should break down each of the scents. Each one includes a shower gel, body lotion, creamy body scrub, and body spray.

Hawaii Coconut – This smells very similar to the Coconut Lime Verbena scent that they discontinued from the Signature range a few years ago. It sweet and fresh with a citrusy background. I didn’t think I would like this one for some reason but I love it.

Fiji Passionfruit – This is my favourite of the three, it has a lot of lime and orange in addition to the passionfruit. This reminds me the most of being on the beach in Maui, Oahu, or the big island of Hawaii – I’ve never been to Fiji!

Bali Mango – This is probably the most subtle of the scents and would appeal to those who want something fresh but not too sweet and not too floral. It has the right balance of pink passionflower, mango, and sugar cane fragrance.

I just wanted to mention that the creamy body scrub (pictured above) is divine. Although it’s not a rough scrub, the sugar crystals that are used are plentiful and small enough to polish and refine your skin. It also lathers up, so it works great as a 2 in 1 body scrub and shower gel.

I admit in the last few years I haven’t really been all that bothered about Bath & Body Works stuff. So much of it had changed and none of the scents really excited me. However, this collection is has captured the essence of what made B&BW great in the first place. Scents that you couldn’t find anywhere else, nice thick shower gels, gorgeous body sprays, and hysteria inducing body scrubs. Well done B&BW – keep it up!

*Update – Miss A from Beauty Boudoir has informed me about The Bath and Body Shop which sells B&BW here in the UK!

@Beauxsmom – Glad to know someone else feels the same way. I thought I might be losing my mind he he
@Anju – They are definitely worth tracking down.
@LeanneOCD – B&BW should be your priority when you are there young lady! :D
@Sultry Red – you’ve always been a scrubber but just haven’t known it!
@Aseya – Well at least you can get ahold of some of the good stuff

Thanks for your comments ladies! xoxo

Hey Karla you might be onto something there. Shame you don’t live in Nottingham I could let you borrow them to try! :D

I don’t know this brand but just by the look of it and the smell they must have, I can’t wait to go to the US to try them. Are they easy to find there ?

Hiya Pinkty!!! Yes Bath & Body Works are very easy to find. They have stores in most malls and even some smaller towns too. My parents live in a really small town in Tennessee and even they have one!

I bought a few of these products in the fiji scent and love it! The scrub is wonderful!! Adding you toy blog roll great site you have here! I’m a huge scrub fan myself xx Jeanie

Arrgggghhhh…why can’t we have a Bath & Body Works in the UK!?! It’s one US brand that I’ve always wanted to try! I’ll have to bribe my mate who lives in Arizona to get me some stuff…she’ll do pretty much anything for Prawn Cocktail Walkers crisps because she misses them so much! lol

@Jeanie – Hello fellow scrub lover! Fiji is soo lush I spray myself with it nearly every day!
@MsW – B&BW was here in the UK many many years ago but for some reason they left. Victoria’s Secret is coming to London next year and I’m hoping that B&BW will follow they are both part of Limited Brands. I can understand that PC crisps they taste great in a sandwich!

Nice of you to drop by ladies! xoxo
