Review: Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods – a much loved repurchased product

A question for all the beauty bloggers and Youtubers out there:  Are there any products that you love and have repurchased quite a few times, and yet suddenly you realize that you have never reviewed it?  This is what happened with the Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods shower gel and body lotion.  I know this is one of the first Bath and Body Works scents that I tried, and that I have loved it since nearly the beginning of this blog.  Although it has come up a few times in my Project 10 Pans and Monthly Favorites, I just noticed that I never reviewed it!

This is a fairly old packaging.  The logo for Twilight Woods has since changed, as well as the packaging of the travel sized products.

What it does: (from the Bath and Body Works website)
The warmth and mystery of enchanted woods with an enticing blend of apricot nectar, mimosa petals & Tuscan cypress

Price: The body lotion is $12.50 for 8 fluid ounces (236 ml). The shower gel is $12.50 for 10 fluid ounces (295 ml).  This is the first time I noticed that the body lotion and the shower gel are not the same size. Is this a new thing, or just something I didn’t notice?

Scent:
Here is how Bath and Body Works describes this scent:
Top Notes: Juicy Berry, Sparkling Mandarin, Coconut 
Mid Notes: Creamy Frangipani, Soft Mimosa, Wet Honeysuckle, Wild Freesia, Apricot Nectar 
Dry Notes: Oud Wood, Musk, Orris, Vanilla Milk, Warm Wood
This is a sweet woody scent with a touch of floral.  I can also smell the vanilla and coconut.

Availability:  Bath and Body Works products are available in the US at free standing Bath and Body Works stores.

Pros:

  • I like that this scent is sweet and warm without smelling like candy.  I also feel that this scent is rather unisex.

Cons:

  • Both the shower gel and body lotion are just OK for me.  I buy Bath and Body Works products because I like the scents.
  • The body lotion is moisturizing enough for me in the warmer months (including now), but it was not enough in the winter months. 
  • The shower gel is extremely thick. I usually dilute it by adding 10%-20% distilled water to make it easier to use.

Would I repurchase?  Yes, this is one of my favorite Bath and Body Works scents.

Hope you enjoyed this review!

xoxo, K
