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!

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there.
