Playing Catch Up- Bath and Body Works Challenge Results

Hey guys! So sometime last year, I did a Bath And Body Works Challenge on the old formula vs the new formula. I was supposed to update and give results but never did. You can read the original post here.

I used to work at Bath and Body Works part time and loved that job!! I have so much stuff by them, I could probably open my own store lol! They are always changing the reformulating their products to make them better. I was in the store one day and saw that they have new formulas for the shower gel and body lotion. It gave me an idea to compare the old formula with the new one. The old formula I already had and it was the scent Country Chic and I purchased the new one in Twilight Woods. As you can see the packaging is completely different. I was drawn to the newer look because it looked more chic and stylish. So lets get into the reviews of both formulas.

Old Formula-Country Chic

I loved this scent. It was such a nice and girly scent. It wasn't too strong and great for everyday. I would layer the scent by first washing with the shower gel, then spray the fragrance mist, apply lotion and spray again with the mist. This packaging was the one of the first changes they made from the older packaging. I don't I even have any to show you guys lol! I'll get started with the shower gel. Before you needed a lot of shower gel just to get a good lather. I love this formula because you don't even need that much anymore. I only use two small dime size amounts and I can wash my whole body with it. I love the consistency of the gel and it leaves your skin feeling smooth. The shower has Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to help with keeping your skin soft and moisturized. The body lotion has a thicker texture and has Shea Butter, Jojoba and Vitamin E for you skin. I normally use the body lotion in the Spring and Summer time and use the Body Cream when it's colder. I love how the body lotion keeps your skin feeling moisturized and soft. I need to do this challenge again because I did this in November and my skin was looking for more moisture. I found myself spraying a lot of the mist because it wasn't strong like perfume but it did help with layering the scent.

New Formula- Twilight Woods

Funny thing is, this scent came out around the time the Twilight movies started. People thought this scent was related the the movies lol! This became a new favorite of mine! It is just a different scent that was so fragrant but not to overpowering. Along with changing the packaging, the formulas changed too. The shower gel now has Shea Butter and a thinner consistency that I didn't like too much. I loved that you still one need a little bit to wash your body. I did notice my skin felt softer after washing with the new formula. The body lotion has 16 hours of continuous moisture and has Vitamin B5. The texture of the lotion was thicker and I'm not sure if I noticed the 16 hours of moisture but my skin was much softer. The new fragrance mist has the the stronger scent like a perfume and last longer. You don't have the drown yourself in the mist anymore lol!!

Overall, I like the newer formula for the body lotion and fragrance mist. It's just something with me and thin shower gels, I like them to be a bit thick. It does the same thing but I kinda wish that consistency didn't change at all. I think I may revisit this challenge when the weather is more consistently warm.

What are your favorite scents at Bath And Body Works? What do you think of the new formula? Comment below and let me know!!!


  1. I haven't use Bath and Body Works in a long time but popped in the store this past weekend to pick out something for my mom for Mother's Day and I was very impressed with their offerings. I'm not big on lotions or shower gels but I LOVE the fact that they have perfumes for almost all the scents in there now and they are so affordable! I will most def be going back in there for myself very soon!

    1. They have come a long way with their products! I just don't like when I start to like a scent and it gets discontined! Thanks for reading Tanya!

  2. Bath and Body is my go-to spot when I'm looking for a unique scent that doesn't make others sneeze when you enter the room.

    1. That is very true! One of few stores where you can look for something without all the sneezing and coughing! Thanks for reading!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
