Review: Bath and Body Works French Lavender and Honey

This is a review of the Bath and Body Works French Lavender & Honey shower gel, which I picked up when I was in New York.


What it does: (from the Bath and Body Works website)

Skin-loving formula is scented with a romantic bouquet of French lavender, nectarine de Provence & sun-kissed honey

  • Top Notes: Mandarin, Melon de Cavaillon, Blackberries, Violet Leaves
  • Mid Notes: French Lavender, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Nectarine de Provence
  • Dry Notes: Honey, White Oak Musk


Price: $12.50 for 10 oz. Bath and Body Works usually has some promotion going on!


Availability: Bath and Body Works products are available at freestanding Bath and Body Works stores, as well as online.


Scent: This product smells of sweet herbs.  I smelled something fruity together with the lavender.


What I thought: I liked this scent.  It was sweet without being overly cloying, and I liked the herbal side of it as well.  This product lathered well and I enjoyed using it.


Would I repurchase? Yes, I liked it!


Hope you enjoyed this review!

Empties from March to May 2016

These are my empties from March to May.  I love seeing people’s empties and hearing what people thought about the product!


(All links go to my reviews)

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub

This is a facial scrub which I used as a facial cleanser. With a face wash net, it foamed up nicely.


Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel

This is my go-to facial SPF.  It has alcohol in it, which may not work for some people, but I really like this SPF because it does not make my skin greasy.



Barry M Dazzle Dust in Mushroom

This is a purply taupe color which was extremely popular in the beauty blogger community a few years ago. Barry M products are extremely affordable in the UK, and I recommend the brand highly.



MKB cleansing oil

A review of this product is coming up! I bought this on a whim because I was running out of cleansing oil.  It was surprisingly good!



Living Lalique Eau de Perfume

This was a light perfume which was very feminine.


Fresh Life Eau de Parfum

This is a floral-citrus scent.  I liked the scent, but I felt that it wasn’t worth the price.


Cartier La Panthere Eau de Parfum

This is a musky floral perfume. I felt that the scent was generic and definitely not worth the price.



Bath and Body Works White Tea and Ginger shower gel

This scent is a discontinued line which is periodically brought back.  It smells like sweet ice tea to me.


YuskinA hand cream

This is a very thick hand cream which is well-loved in Japan. It helped my hands a lot this past winter.



Seabreeze Deo+Water deodorant

My go-to deodorant! I always have one on hand.



Hope you enjoyed my empties!

Empties from November 2015 to February 2016 – Part 2

This is part 2 of my recent empties. Where do you normally keep your empties?

(all links go to reviews I have done before)


Marc Jacobs Honey Eau de Parfum

I liked this scent quite a lot, and am considering buying the full sized bottle.


Tory Burch Eau de Perfume

This is a great scent for the young professional woman.  It is feminine without smelling too sweet, and is not offensive – but be careful how much you apply!



Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

I did not know when I tried this product that it is such a popular fragrance! This was heavier than most scents I am used to wearing, so I am glad I got to try it in the cooler months.



Bath and Body Works Ultra Shea Body Cream in White Tea & Ginger

I liked this body cream much, much better than Bath and Body Works’ normal body lotions.



Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel

This is a sunscreen that I apply on my face every single day. It provides SPF 50+ without making my face greasy. It contains alcohol though, so don’t apply it to your face if you have sensitive skin.


Sea Breeze Deo & Water Frozen Mint

This is a new product in the Sea Breeze Deo & Water line, and has a stronger menthol feeling. It was very refreshing in the summer, but too cold in the cooler months.



Bath and Body Works Sparkling Limeade candle

I liked the scent of this candle, but as you can see from the black marks on the container, this did not burn evenly.  I’ve realized that Bath and Body Works don’t sell many of their candles in the small size anymore!


The Body Shop Lavender Home Fragrance Oil

This was a nice lavender scent.  If you are looking for a pure lavender oil, this is not the right product, but it is great if you are looking for a lavender scented oil



Those are all of my recent empties! What products have you used recently?

Empties from November 2015 to February 2016 – Part 1

Here are some of my emptiness from November 2015 to February 2016. I’m always surprised at how many empties people have each month.  I struggle to use up even a whole bottle of shower gel!

(all links go to reviews I have done before)

Milani Shadow Eyez in Champagne Toast

I recommend these eyeshadow pencils so much. They look great by themselves or as a base, and they don’t crease!


YSL Le Teint Encre De Peau foundation

I never did a review on this foundation because when I got it, it was already discontinued. I did not like the applicator, but this gave my skin a nice even finish without looking too cakey.


Skinfood Buckwheat loose powder

I completely forgot about this product until I realized it was taking up a lot of space in my makeup drawer.  It is a finely milled powder that I can apply on top of my makeup without looking too unnatural.


Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder

While I liked the product itself, I did not like the packaging. The plastic top will crack if you keep the product where it can get squeezed.


Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Orange Ginger shower gel

This is still one of my favorite scents from Bath and Body Works. If you are looking for a shower gel which isn’t too floral or fruity, take a look at this one.


Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Lavender Vanilla shower gel

This is another one of my favorites from Bath and Body Works. It is a change to have a vanilla scented product which isn’t very sweet.


Stay tuned for part 2 of my empties!

Throwback Thursday: Favorites from January

This is very late, but here is a look back at the products I liked in January 2014 and 2013!

For more information on each product, click on the links to go to my reviews!


In January 2014, I liked:

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

These are a long time favorite of mine, and I pick up a package whenever I am in the US. I have tried other makeup remover wipes since then, but these still win!



Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Energy

This is probably my favorite Bath and Body Works scent. It smells slightly sweet, slightly gingery, and slightly citrus-y.



Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye 

I have never really found an eye cream that I felt worked… except for this. It is a gel-like consistency, which works great on my oily eyes.

Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everest BB Cream

This is a local Indonesian BB cream that I picked up after reading a few Indonesian beauty blogs. It had decent coverage and lasted even in the hot and humid weather. I was a little sad when I finished it!

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows

These have been a hit since they first came out, and I can’t stop hunting for the next greatest color. My current top favorite is Amber Rush, but there are quite a few colors to choose from.

In January 2013, I liked:

Lush Olive Branch Shower Gel

This is one of my favorite Lush shower gels. I’ve found that I really like bergamot scents, as well as other woody scents which are not overly feminine.


Laneige Water Sleeping Pack Ex

I picked up this pack in Korea, but since then, Laneige products have become more widely available. This product, for example, can be found on the Target website!


L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

This mascara made my lashes thicker without clumps, and made it look like I had more lashes. It also did not transfer under my eyes, which is my biggest complaint with most mascaras.



Hope you enjoyed this look back to my old favorites!
