Review: Bath and Body Works Fresh Brazil Citrus Body Lotion

This is a review of the Bath and Body Works Fresh Brazil Citrus body lotion, which I picked up during my trip to Hawaii.

Bath and Body Works used to be one of my favorite brands for body lotion and shower gel. I was so excited when a free standing store opened in Hawaii a few years ago. Before that, I would beg friends who were coming to Japan from mainland US to buy some for me.

I have also realized that Bath and Body Works seems to be coming out with more and more new scents each year. I started to feel overloaded from all the press releases about their new scents for each season, and even for each holiday. I used to buy around 10 or so products each time I visited a store in the US, but now I pick up only a few.

What it does: (from the Bath and Body Works website)
Let your senses run wild with a sun-drenched mix of ripe citrus & sweet pineapple

Top Notes: Luscious Pineapple, Mango Nectar, Tangerine Fizz, Pomelo
Mid Notes: Tiare Bloom, Passion Flower, Peach Sorbet
Dry Notes: Sandalwood, Coconut Milk, White Musk

 

Price: I always purchase the travel size, which is $5 for 3 fluid ounces (88ml). The full size is $12.50 for 8 fluid ounces (236ml)

Availability: Bath and Body Works products are available at free-standing stores in over 15 countries.

Scent: I mainly smell pineapple and citrus from this product.  It has a tropical fruity scent.

 

Pros:

  • I like that this scent is light and not overpowering
  • I also like that this scent does not linger on my skin

Cons:

  • Like many other Bath and Body Works body lotions, I found that this product was not moisturizing enough for me in the middle of winter.

 

Would I repurchase? Maybe. While I liked the scent, Bath and Body Works keeps coming out with new  scents.  I might buy it if it gets rereleased, but I don’t think I’ll be buying any backups.

 

Hope you enjoyed this review!
