I’ve had this fabulous body lotion since forever and I’ve only thought about writing this review now. Go figure! If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s the fact that I love all kinds of minty scents. I suffer from asthma and cat allergies all the time and I love fragrances that decongest, hahaha! No, but really. Any kind of mentholated scents, I love. That’s why it’s so easy for me to fall in love with the Bath and Body Works Stress relief range!
In fact, I have the body gel version of this body lotion but that’s a subject for another review. Let’s talk about the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief lotion, shall we?
What is it: Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Lotion
According to the brand, the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief lotion is a:
Ultra-creamy, fast-absorbing body lotion with nourishing shea butter & Vitamin E is formulated to give skin long-lasting moisture. An aromatherapy blend of natural ingredients & essential oils benefits body, mind & mood. Breathe deeply for best results.
Quality and Packaging
I’m a sucker for great packaging! I just love the old packaging of the Aromatherapy range. Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Lotion is housed in a glass bottle.
The glass bottle and the dispenser look and feel so old school. These little things just add to the immensely satisfying experience of applying the product, you know?
The bottle has a nice heft to it, it doesn’t feel nor look flimsy. The plastic pump dispenses the right amount of product. The dispenser works smoothly and is robust.
The lotion itself is creamy yet lightweight. The product spreads evenly and is easily absorbed by the skin. The lotion has a lovely minty scent, which I adore. It’s doesn’t have any cooling quality though.
If you have extra thirsty skin, apply this to a slightly damp skin so the product absorbs better. The scent is never overpowering nor migraine-inducing. Quite long-lasting too, love it!
I love the formula, it smoothens the skin and keeps the texture supple and bouncy. It’s not ultra hydrating enough for dry heels, knees, or elbows though. I prefer applying the lotion at night when my room is nice and cool! It’s nor greasy per se but I wouldn’t use this on a hot day.
I love B&BW’s aromatherapy line especially the eucalyptus and spearmint range so loving the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Lotion is hardly surprising. I love the overall quality of the packaging as well as the formula of the lotion!
