Ethnic beauties, today I'd like to review five products from Bath & Body Works®. They are from the boutique's Stress Relief line, and the scent is called Eucalyptus Spearmint. I received them in a gift from a dear friend that included a lovely box filled with the full sized items below:
Body Wash & Foam Bath - This comes in a 10 ounce clear squeeze bottle pasted with pretty pale leaves. The label says that the Eucalyptus oil will help in clearing the mind while the Spearmint oil will prove uplifting. Infused with skin softeners, this body wash is a great way to start or end any day. The scent is soft and calming, yet it's enigmatically invigorating.
Body Lotion - This comes in a 6.5 ounce glass bottle with a pump. Very very nice. The lotion is rich and creamy, but it dissolves easily, leaving no greasy feel. All you'll be left with is the loveliest scent that others will notice. They may even ask--after complimenting you, 'what are you wearing?' My advice...breathe deeply after applying.
Massage Oil - In a clear glass bottle that also boasts the pretty pale leaves, these 4 ounces of oil you will put to good use. Whether you and the person of your choosing massage it into freshly cleansed skin, or whether you choose to slather it on your feet, elbows or elsewhere, this massage oil will become a favorite, especially if you add it to a relaxing bath.
Shea-infused Socks - These I love! Plush and cute, they have little rubber 'stoppers' on the bottom so that you can walk and not skid or slip on polished floors. They are fragrant and the spearmint in them is cooling on the feet. The shea butter makes the socks a dream to wear, and they may be laundered many times without losing their infusion.
Scented Candle - Made from a blend of vegetable wax, the lead-free wick makes for optimal burning. This 4 ounce candle you will smell even without lighting it. Truthfully, I tell you -- each time I pass it, the scent is noticeable and makes me happy.
In the Stress Free line there are other scents, such as the Vanilla Verbena which is infused with vanilla essential oil and has a most soothing effect on the mind as well as the body even when the candle is not being burned. Therefore, why not do as my sweet significant other did and purchase the larger 14.5 ounce candle for even more burning time?
Ethnic Beauties, most of you know that with products and reviews, sometimes we hit, and other times we miss. Today we've definitely got hits! I give these products five out of five cocktail rings -- which in our rating system is the best you can get. Friends, I think you owe it to yourselves or to someone you love to make these and other unmentioned items from this winning line part of your pampering cache/reserve. Don't be surprised either, if you go online and see that a few of the items are sold out. Simply get on the wait list. They are just that good.
