Bath & Body Works Vanilla Patchouli Body Lotion Review

Hello guys, I am up with very first review from BBW today. I got Bath & Body Works Vanilla Patchouli Body Lotion during BOGO offer on Nykaa recently. I am just obsessed with the beautiful aromatic aromatherapy range of BBW. This is my first body lotion from the brand. I also got few other body care products that I have not yet opened except a shower gel. Let’s get into the review now.

Bath & Body Works Vanilla Patchouli Body Lotion comes in a very sturdy thick brown glass bottle. It is see though so you can see how much product is left. The pump dispenser is good, dispenses just the right amount of lotion. There is no outer packaging.

Texture & Aroma

I can’t even tell you how amazing this body lotion smells! It has beautiful sweet-sharp notes of vanilla and patchouli. The scent is very comforting and soothing, not at all overpowering. The texture is extremely light weight and non greasy.

My Experience with Bath & Body Works Vanilla Patchouli Body Lotion

I have been using this body lotion from a couple of weeks now. I must say, this is one of the best scented boy lotions. I bought this online and wasn’t sure about the fragrance but oh my my I am impressed. This body lotion smells too good man! You can visit the store and try it if BBW stores are in your city.

This body lotion is very light weight, it sinks in completely without leaving sticky feel. It hydrates the body so nicely. The mild fragrance stays on for almost the entire day which I was not at all expecting but I am stunned. This is a great body lotion for normal to dry body skin for monsoon or summery season.

My body skin is sahara dry but it is summer these days even though Navratri is going on. I am religiously applying body lotions these days after the chickenpox phase. I use chemical exfoliants twice-thrice a week on body and hence it is necessary to moisturise it. I also read somewhere that using moisturisers heal the scars faster. This was totally approved when I saw the scars in my under arm area completely faded but they are still there on other body parts – because moisture level is high in under arms.

Bath & Body Works Vanilla Patchouli Body Lotion is very soothing and comforting as the name says. You get the hints of vanilla and patchouli almost throughout the day. If you are looking for beautifully scented light weight body lotions, BBW will be the right choice. They have such a great range of products. I would highly highly recommend.
