Review: Bath and Body Works Pure Paradise

This is a review of the Bath and Body Works Pure Paradise scent.  Apparently this line was released in the summer of 2013.  I picked up a bottle of the travel sized body lotion during my trip to New York.  Now that it is getting hot and humid, I started using this product hoping it would make me feel like I am on the beach instead of stuck in an office!

What it does: (from the Bath and Body Works website)
Pure paradise in a bottle! A summer-chic blend of sparkling star fruit & ocean-kissed frangipani blossoms. Top Notes: Juicy Star Fruit, Juicy Guava, Dewy Cassis Mid Notes: Luscious Gardenia, Dewy Frangipani Blossom, Water Lily Dry Notes: White Musk, Blond Woods, Sunkissed Coconut

Price: The travel sized body lotion is $5 for 3 fluid ounces (88 ml), which usually lasts me about a month. The full sized body lotion is $12.50 for 8 fluid ounces (236 ml). Bath and Body Works usually has some kind of promotion going on such as buy 2 get 1 free, or buy 3 travel sized products for $12.

Availability: Bath and Body Works products are available at free-standing Bath and Body Works Stores, on their website, or in more than 15 countries world wide.

Scent:  This smells sweet and fruity to me, mostly of guava.  I don’t smell much of the coconut, and I honestly don’t think star fruit smells like anything! (or maybe I haven’t smelled a star fruit in a long time)

Pros:

  • As with all Bath and Body Works body lotions, it was a good medium weight formula which works for me all year around, except in the middle of winter.  

Cons:

  • I don’t dislike the scent, but it is a little too fruity for me.  I like wearing this scent to bed, but I wouldn’t wear it during the day.
Would I repurchase? No, I’m not the biggest fan of this scent!
Unfortunately, while I like the product when I tested it in the store, I got a little tired of the scent during the month that I used it.  I usually only buy travel sized products at Bath and Body Works because I always get bored of a scent.  I’m glad that I have many more products to try!
Hope you enjoyed this review!
