It's Friday I'm in love
Day 25: PS I Love You from Bath & Body Works
by MUA'S Cavewoman
If you can walk out of a Bath & Body Works store without a big heavy bag full of goodies, you are a stronger person than I am. Quality products, enticing scents, pretty packaging, and frequent specials have me well-supplied with body care items, and backups of my backups!
Now that Spring is officially less than a day away, I am hoping I won't need the heavy-duty creams and lotions that I've needed over the past several months. I present to Blogdorf readers the prettiest little group of rose-scented body care items that have helped me get through the dry-skin days of this past Ohio Really Bad Cold Snowy Icy Winter.
PS I Love You is a captivating scent from Bath & Body Works that I would say is truer to the real perfumer's art than some of this company's other offerings. This is what I love about B&BW. There is something here for everyone. From invigorating citruses to sensual woods, it's all here, reasonably priced, and ready to go to work for you. The formulas are solid performers. Nothing disappoints. I fell in love with PS I Love You during one of their big sales (you know what I mean, buy two of these and get one free, buy this and get that free, etc. etc.) and gathered up a nice array of products in this fragrance. When Winter hit hard, I was glad I had a stash of these emollient and softly-scented products to soothe my dry skin and make me feel a little pampered in the process.
This particular fragrance contains my beloved rose,along with peony, orchid, jasmine, lilies, all in a base containing sandalwood, amber, patchouli and musk. There is even an Eau De Parfum to finish off the body care ritual and keep the scent going all day.
The hand cream comes in a small tube that is purse-friendly and the formula is totally non-sticky, with no residue left behind at all. It absorbs super-fast and is great in between water-related chores around the house, or to use when out and about and hands start feeling dry. The body butter in the little jar is perfect for the most parched legs, elbows and knees. It is the richest formula offered by B&BW and feels luxurious and soothing. And the tube of body lotion is large and easy to dispense with the flip-top cap, I like this as just a basic all-over lotion. It leaves my skin softly scented and ready to get dressed for the day, with nothing left behind to stain or mark my clothes. After a while the scent of these body products disappears, and won't interfere with my fragrance of the day. This is characteristic of most of the B&BW fragranced body products and a huge selling point for me personally. Sometimes I want the scent to linger, and most times I don't.
