Find Yourself in Pure Paradise with Bath & Body Works!

Find Yourself in Pure Paradise with Bath & Body Works!

Get your very own island escape any time, when you take your senses to paradise with Bath & Body Works' new scent, Pure Paradise. With new products perfect for beautifully fragrant, summertime skin, Pure Paradise is sure to be one of your new favorites too!

Pure Paradise is described on the Bath and Body Works website as "an island fantasy inspired by white sand beaches, endless blue skies and clear turquoise waters as far as the eye can see. This alluring fragrance is a sparkling blend of fresh star fruit, frangipani and water lily drenched in sun-kissed coconut and white musk. A summer-chic blend of sparkling star fruit & ocean-kissed frangipani blossoms… it’s pure paradise in a bottle!" Broken down, the utterly refreshing, yet intoxicating, fragrance features top notes of fresh star fruit, juicy guava, and dewy cassis, mid notes of luscious gardenia, frangipani, and water lily, and dry notes of white musk, blond woods, and sun-kissed coconut.

The first time I saw this fragrance in store, I did what I typically do, and spritzed a bit on {I highly recommend this-I've both loved and hated fragrances when I smell them in the bottle, just to totally change my mind about them when I smell them on my skin. Plus the hubby is a fragrance snob, so it's a must that I have him smell new scents on me before I purchase them}. I was so smitten at first whiff, that I literally had to double back to try on the lotion and spray some more of the fragrance mist. After, I got the hubby's seal of approval, I bought the body cream, shower gel, and fragrance mist. I love the mix of bright, feminine florals with the delicious undertone of mellow coconut; it is truly a scent that takes you to paradise!

There are quite a few different formulations featuring this new scent, some of them made especially to give you a fresh summer time glow! Here are the many ways to enjoy the Pure Paradise Collection: 

Fine Fragrance Mist ($14 for 8 fl. oz)- {sent for review, and also purchased by me}BBW has recently revamped the packaging for their Fragrance Mists so that the new pump "delivers great coverage and delicate mist for the lightest, most refreshing way to fragrance!"

2-in-1 Superfruit Body Scrub and Wash ($14)- This multitasker is made from antioxidant-rich pomegranate, blueberry and cranberry seeds, an exclusive Superfruit Seed Complex. The scrub and cleanser leaves skin feeling ultra-soft, sexy and smooth.

Triple Moisture Body Cream ($12.50) - {purchased by me}This super conditioning formula contains milk proteins, hydrating rice bran oil and berry extract to provide deep, 24-hour moisture, leaving even the driest skin amazingly soft, fragrant and silkier than ever before.

Shower Gel ($11 for 10 fl. oz)-  {sent for review; purchased by me}This luxurious body wash leaves you with softer, cleaner, lightly fragranced skin! Moisturizing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E combine with skin-loving shea butter for the perfect daily cleanser. Just add water for a luscious lather that bursts with fragrance!

Body Lotion ($11 for 8 fl.oz) - {sent for review}This exclusive hydrating formula contains skin-loving shea butter to deliver long lasting moisture for the perfect everyday lotion and the softest way to fragrance. The non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and completely to leave skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished.

Beach Bronze Leg Shine  ($16.50)Add the perfect hint of tint and shimmer for flawless, bronzed, beach sexy legs. This velvety shine effortlessly glides onto skin for the smoothest, most radiant legs!

Beach Glow Body Lotion ($16.50)Add a radiant, sun-kissed glow to skin all summer long. Beach Glow Body Lotion adds instant glamour and shimmer to skin for a beach-ready body and contains soothing, refreshing aloe! Apply evenly to legs, arms and wherever you want a silky smooth, bronze glow.
{Also available in the Pure Paradise scent, but not pictured here, is the Beach Waves Hair Mist ($14.50),  a texturizing spray that contains mineral rich sea salt to add incredible texture for an effortlessly sexy look. Apply a  few quick mists on dry or damp hair, work through hair and use fingers to scrunch and twirl for sexy, beach blown waves. It will leave your hair feeling soft, not sticky or shiny, and beautifully fragranced!}
One of the other things that I love about this particular scent from Bath & Body Works is that it is perfect for layering. It's not so heavy that it becomes overwhelming when you use the products together, and if you wanted to use a different perfume on top of them, I have found that it works quite well with some of my other fragrances. For a long lasting scent, I use the body wash, then after drying off, I spray the fragrance mist all over my skin. Once that has air dried, I apply the body cream. When I use the products in that order, I'm guaranteed to enjoy the experience of Pure Paradise all day long! What's your favorite fragrance from Bath & Body Works?
