Question
Can you use the foaming soap refills in any soap despenser?

answer 1
If you do, you won't have foam coming out. If you look at a regular liquid soap dispenser and a foam soap dispenser, there are differences in structure. The mechanism of the foam soap pump serves the purpose of introducing air into the liquid and mixing it together with the liquid soap and voila! - foam. A regular dispenser won't do this.

Nope! The foam soap dispensers are specially made to make the foam. If you use them in anything else, it'll just come out as a liquid.

No, the foam pump has a special feature that allows the liquid to foam up. If you put it in a regular pump you wont get foam, just liquid.

Can you help me find a body lotion for dry skin for my husband?

I would also recommend the Derma Remedy by C O Bigelow. All four products from that line are amazing and help nuture even the driest of skin.
However, if your husband only has moderate dry skin, I would also recommend either C O Bigelow's Mentha line, Aromatherapys Stress Relief Line, or True Blue Spa's Lay it on Tihick Line. All three lines have great moisturizers in them for all types of skins concerns, but more importantly then also have exfoliators. If your husband has dry skin, using an exfoliator in the shower or bath can really help him by removing any dead skin that is clinging to the body. The Menta Body buffer is my favorite! It is a moderate exfoliant that has a great peppermint scent and leaves your skin a bit tingly :) If he exfoliates about once a week in the shower, and then puts lotion on, I think he will see immediate benefits!
If you don't think he would use a scrub, I would also recomment Lay it On Thicks Shower Cream. It provides a great deal of moisture to the skin while cleansing, and it's not creating an "extra step" in the shower.

I would have him try the C.O. Bigelow Derma Remedy body lotion. There isn't much of a scent and it is a great moisturizer. Another option is the True Blue Spa fragrance free Lay it on Thick. It is also a great moisturizer, however it takes awhile to soak in to your skin.

Question
If a person likes japanese cherry blossum and other scents similar to that, will they like the new butterfly garden scent?
I'm debating about ordering online and I would like to buy the butterfly garden, but after reading some of the descriptions of the scent, I'm not sure if I will like it or not.

If it helps, I can tell you that my two favorites currently are japanese cherry blossum and the victoria secrets pink, clean and fresh.

another additional note that might help is that I don't like sweet pea or sensual amber, to me they are way too sweet of a smell, so I guess I would be afraid that butterfly garden might be the same. Any imput would be appreciated. Thanks

Based on what you gave as your likes and dislikes, I would say that Butterfly Flower may not be for you. In my opinion, it is almost a mix between Enchanted Orchid and Plumeria, a fairly strong floral.
However, if you are looking for a new fragrance to try and Japanese Cherry Blossom is one of your favorites, may I recommend the new Sheer Japanese Cherry Blossom? I am absolutely in love with it! It's almost the playful version of Japanes Cherry Blossom....lighter, a little zesty, and a little more spring time (if that makes sense). And not only do I find the fragrance amazing, but the bottle for the EDT is amazingly beautiful! I also loved wearing the Black Amethyst scent in the winter. Similiar to Japanese Cherry Blossom in that it's a more sensual fragrance, but it's not as spicy. To me, it's a great addition to the family of scents that they have to offer.
Lastly, if you are still curious about Butterfly Flower and want to try it, Bath and Body works does have a 100% guarentee on their products, so if you find it' s not you, you can exchange it for something that is :)

I don't know an official answer, but I have seen others state 5 years often, so I suspect there lies truth in that. However, I've had a few of mine that I use only on rare occasions that are probably closer to 7 years, and are fine. The scent and color are the same. The only thing I notice is that over time (several years), my body creams become thinner, nearer to a lotion consistency. I suspect that some of the fruit extracts used act as proteases over time, breaking down some of the proteins in the creams that provide them with their thickness. But these proteases would exist in small amounts such as not to harm skin in any way. The thinned body creams still retain a luxuriousness and hydration that surpasses body lotion (even new body lotion). So your lotions and creams will last you quite a while, rest assured, lest you find visible evidence of spoilage which could be caused by any number of factors not inherent to the lotions/creams themselves (i.e. loose caps, environmental factors including location of storage with heat/humidity/exposure to light, etc.).

If the product is stored in a cool place it can last a number of years. I believe up to 5 years, depending on the type of product of course.

The difference between anti-bacterial soap and liquid, foam soap is that anti bacterial soap ocassionally has microbeads in which case help cleanse more. Liquid soap is just the regular type of soap that the average person in a household would get and lastly foam soap. Foam soap creates more bubbles. Little kids love this kind of soap because its fun, i personally like it too. Bath and Body Work soaps are my favorite, currently I have Fresh Pineapple anti-bacterial hand soap. I hope my answer helped!

The foam anti-bacterial is very light and gentle on the skin. In my opinion, this one lasts the longest because it despenses one "puff" at a time, and one puff is really all you need to get the benefits. I also love that once you put it on, you can't feel it afterwards. It is not sticky at all!
The liquid anti-bacterial has a gentle exfoliatant in it, and its the most traditional form of waterless santizers.
The moisturizing santizer does exactly what it does and is almost a two in one product! Not only does it santize, but it also make a wonderful hand cream to keep your hands soft and clean!
They also have a spray sanitizer which is really nice. They come in very unique fragrances and have natural ingrediants in them! Also, they have a lot less alcohol in them than most sanitizers (I think they are 99% alcohol free) and are safe for kids! Also makes a great disinfectant for a phone or a doorknob if you are in a pinch!

There are three different types of antibacterial hand soap: deep cleansing which also has a light exfoliant in it, moisturizing which is infused with shea butter to help mosturize hands, and foaming which is the gentlest style on your hands, very mild soap. All the travel sizes- there is a lotion, a gel, a foam, and wipes for antibacterial needs on the go. I think the foaming sanitizer is the best because it's very light and less alcohol-y.

What is the difference between the hand cream and the body cream? Will I get the same benefits by using the body cream on my hands?

There is a significant difference. Use hand cream on your body, and boy will you pay for it, literally, as in money. Body cream probably won't end up helping your hands much more than standard lotion. Hand cream is worth its weight, again literally, as in it is heavier.

Hand creams generally have additional moisturizers in them. I personally love the Signature hand creams, CO Bigelow's lemon hand cream, and TBS Lay It On Thick hand cream. What do they have in common? Shea butter. Sure, there are other hand creams out there with other oils/ingredients that make them great moisturizers for the hands, too. But you won't find these ingredients or shea butter in most body creams.

Body creams almost always do not contain shea butter. Signature body creams are nourishing but do not have it. You have to step up to the body butter level for that, or go for Lay It On Thick body cream which comes in a tube as opposed to a tub like the butters.

So pamper your hands with a hand cream particularly if you have dry, chapped hands or wash your hands frequently (which we all really should be doing anyway). Otherwise, using a body cream for your hands is probably not much better in the end than using regular lotion, such as BBW Signature hand lotion (a perfect "jack of all trades" as many a reviewer has said).

P.S. Try to use hand soaps at home that you find least drying. For me, it is the moisturizing lotion hand soap from BBW. Some people complain it leaves clumps in their sink. Here's the key: start with a pea-sized amount. Start rubbing it into both hands just a little so no clumps are on your hands. Then add just a little bit of water and go to town with the rubbing. It doesn't make tons of lather but the amount of lather has nothing to do with how clean you get. It rinses clean but doesn't strip your hands. It is, however, tough on grease I've found. Do it this way and after rinsing there should be no clumps in the sink.

There is a difference. The hand cream is especially formulated for treating dry hands. Seeing that hands need more moisturizing effect, the hand cream is going to give them more protection. The body cream does the same thing, but is formulated for the body, which needs less moisturizing effects. You will get very similar benefits if you use the body cream on your hands, but the hand cream will moisturize your hands better than the body cream. You can use the body cream on your hands, but I do not recommend using the hand cream on your body. I hope this helps!

What a great question!!! If I was going to a tropical Island I would definately bring the Ile De Tahiti Coconut Vanille for the day and the Tiara Flower for night. both of those scents just scream tropical, bright, refreshing, and sophisticated to me! :) I would also possilbly bring Be more Pacific and Tahiti, Sweetie shower cream and body lotion for that more light, having a fruity drink on the beach feel to it :) I would definately bring a scrub too, either the Need a Margharita? body scrub or the Coconut Vanille foaming pulp body polish so that my skin was satiny smooth, soft and ready for the sun.
Personally, I wouldn't bring anything too heavy or musky since when I go to the islands I want to feel carefree and light. For example, even though I really love Japanese Cherry blossom I wouldn't bring that one, but I might bring the new Sheer Japanese Cherry Blossom because it's a little lighter and brighter than the original.

What scents do you think go well together?
I want somthing that works well together for my bathroom and kitchen, but I don't want too much of one scent. Somthing that matches well with warm vanilla sugar or kitchen lemon would be nice. I don't like scents that are too floral or perfume smelling.

For the Kitchen Lemon combination I would suggest Flowering Herbs, Cool Citrus Basil, Lemongrass Sage, Mango Mandarin, Rainkissed Leaves, Sunripped Rasberry, and they're newest scent, White Citrus. I have a combination of White Citrus and Kitchen Lemon in my kitchen and it smells excellent. It is not too overpowering nor perfumery. Brilliant Citrus also goes very well with Kitchen Lemon and it is an odor-neutralizing home fragrance.

For the Vanilla Sugar combination I would suggest Black Raspberry Vanilla, Brown Sugar and Fig, Sensual Amber, Vanilla Noir, or Japanese Cherry Blossom.

I'm assuming you mean a wallflower that will go well with those two scents as a hand soap. I recently started using wallflowers and the hand soaps from bbw. If I have a warm vanilla sugar soap in my bathroom I would try creamy nutmeg, kitchen spice, vanilla coconut, or vanilla noir because they are in the same family as far as smell but they don't smell the same as wvs. For kitchen lemon I would try something else fruity like lemonade, orange nectar, juicy nectarine, or brilliant citrus. Hopefully that helps.

To me, all fruity scents coordinate quite well. So with the lemon, use cucumber melon, midnight pomegranate, mango mandarin, bartlett pear, apple, pineapple orchid, or island nectar.

Mny scents go well with vanilla. Not sure what scents you are looking for here--candles, wallfowers? Cinnamon works well as does apple, coconut, and lavender.

I would not use any handsoap on my face, and definitely not anti-bac. Your skin on your face is very sensitive. Your hands are exposed to the environment so much more, doing so much more, so the skin is tougher and more resilient. Your face needs lots of TLC.

Anti-bac soap is the worst you could use. Our skin carries normal "good" bacteria, what's called our "normal flora." Disrupt this with an anti-bac soap and your face will suffer. Dry out, break out, who knows, but you don't want to find out. Using a tiny, tiny bit of moisturizing body wash in an emergency might be OK if you don't have significant acne.

As a rule, only face stuff on the face. Your skin will thank you.

The antibacterial lotion is meant to kill germs on your hands which touches everything and pics up a lot of dirt and germs. The only thing I would even consider using on my face would be regular body lotion. But you have to be careful if you try to use products on your face that are intended for your body because the skin on your face is more sensitive. So no I wouldn't suggest using the anti-bac lotion on your face.

I'm not sure about using the antibacterial lotion on your face on a regualr basis. Maybe could be used in a pinch. I think I would stick with facial moisturizer.

I can tell you that I have used the antibacterial foaming soap on my face to try and clear up breakouts (even though I know it's not suggested for that) and have had some success but it is very drying.

The Strike Gold is great because it gets you tan in like, 4 hours. My friend uses it and she always has the best tan legs. Also, it doesnt streak, which is great. But, if you moisturize often and like the SPF, go for Glow and Steady and you will get that tan eventually.

I have used both and I really liked glow and steady a bit better, mostly because it has spf in it and no bronzer. however, i LOVE shade to order, the dial tanner they have. You can choose your shade of how dark you want to be and it also had a clear moisturizer selection so that you can just use moisturize if thats all you need! All three work very well, especially if you exfoliate right before and then put either body cream or body butter on you ankles, knees, elbows, etc before putting on the self tanner. And all three give you a healthy, natural looking tan!

glow and steady is a gradual so the more you use it the darker you'll get. You're not going to get really tan with it though. Strike gold is for you if you want a darker color. You can always try shade to order...that one lets you chose your shade.
