Review // Bath and Body Works Sparkling Limoncello Body Cream

Why don't we have Bath and Body Works in the UK? It really upsets me knowing that we can't have easy access to wonderful scented hand sanitizers, candles and body creams at the drop of a hat. If they ever opened up stores in the UK then I would definitely apply to work there - purely for the staff discount.

When I was in Washington DC in February, my skin was so dry. I'm not sure if it was a mixture of the plane journey or the deeply cold weather but my skin was in really bad condition when I got there. My hands were cracked, bleeding and painful, although that may be down to my obsessive usage of hand sanitizer. I didn't take any hand cream or body moisturisers on holiday with me as I knew I would be going to Bath and Body Works so off I set to the nearest store clutching a handful of America's favourite; coupons. 

Walking into Bath and Body Works is literally better than walking into a sweet shop. So much to smell! So much to touch! So much to see! I wrote about what I bought in Bath and Body Works in a post a while ago but my ultimate saviour from the cold weather was the Bath and Body Works Sparkling Limoncello Body Cream.

About the Bath and Body Works Sparkling Limoncello Body Cream:
"Infused with luxuriously rich Shea Butter, our Ultra Shea Body Cream provides 24 hours of nourishing moisture to soften even the driest skin. With soothing Aloe Butter, pampering Cocoa Butter and more Shea than ever before, our non-greasy formula melts into skin to provide beautiful fragrance and all day, all night hydration."

Sparkling Limoncello smells utterly divine. It is fresh, light and most importantly, filled with lemon! (If you don't like the smell of lemon scented cleaning products then you may not like this.) You can purchase around 13 different Sparkling Limoncello scented products from the Bath and Body Works so I was completely torn. I knew I wanted something moisturising so the wallflower fragrance refill was straight out of the question. In the end I was completely torn between the Bath and Body Works Sparkling Limoncello Body Cream or the Body Lotion. The latter was moisturising but it had a thinner consistency in comparison to the body cream, which was really thick and creamy.

The Sparkling Limoncello Body Cream is everything you expect a body cream to be. It is really moisturising and settles into the skin really quickly whilst leaving a really subtle lemon scent behind. After a few uses, my horrendously dry skin had been cured and more importantly, my hands didn't resemble sandpaper any more. 

Pricing wise, the Bath and Body Works Sparkling Limoncello Body Cream costs $13.00 excluding tax which is around £9. For that £9 you get 226g of product which is fairly pricey. Would I spend £9 on a body cream in the UK? Perhaps not. Don't get me wrong, I love this body cream. It smells incredible - really zesty and refreshing and it has a lovely thick and creamy formula which performs in its job really well but if I were to see it in the shops in the UK priced at £9+, I would probably just smell it and walk away!

  21. After visiting the Amalfi coast in March I'm obsessed with all things lemon flavored! $13 is a bit steep for a lotion but Bath and Body Works seems to have sales quite often :) Thanks for recommending this lovely scent!
