Question
How Often Do you apply the scent
I want a my BBW scent to be loud, no offending, but sometimes girls walk by and that is the first thing I notice, I wanna be that girl. Do you have to keep some in your purse and spray it on all the time for it to stick around?

It is best to have a daily routine with your BBW products and use the same fragrance for each step. I recommend starting in the shower with a shower gel or body wash. Then after your shower choose a moisturizer. You can use the body lotion, body cream, or body butter (based on your skin type and how much moisture your skin needs or you want). Next apply the Fragrance Mist. You can apply some before you get dressed and some after. If you really want that extra kick you can use the EDT spray in key areas like your wrists, chest, and behind the ears. Re-applying some lotion or fragrance mist will keep your 'scent' refreshed throughout the day (BBW has some great travel sized options!). Hope this helps. :D Oh...there are even a few fragrances that you can get in shampoo and conditioner too!

I LOVE the Japanese Cherry Blossom scent. So what I am known for, especially by my fiancee, is the scent. If he smells it he thinks of me, which is what I want. So what I do to always smell like the Japanese Cherry Blossomis simple: I surround myself with its scent. I "shop by fragrance" on line or go to that section in the store. I bathe with oil-to-cream-cleanser, shower gel, bubble bath, and body gel (depending). I use the fragrance mist on my clothes and use unscented deodorant so it doesn't interfer with the scent of Japanese Cherry Blossom. I use the sheer Eau de Toilette on my wrist and neck. I use the body lotion, butter, cream, and rice oil to mosturize and scent by skin. I use the Japanese Cherry Blossom scented hand sanitizing foam, gel sanitizer, antibaterial hand lotion, travel sized lotion and travel sized fragrance mist to maintain the scent without overdoing it. I don't use the fragrance mist to touch up my clothes unless its been at least 12 hours because it touches up a little too strongly. I love the travel sized things and antibacterial scented lotion because its subtle yet noticable.

I suggest using the travel sized stuff to touch up. It reenforces the scent but isn't overpowering or offending. Good luck in finding the right combination of products for you!!! <3

I apply before I go to school (about 7:30 AM), at lunchtime, and right before I come home from school (about 3:30).

A kitchen spice is more like the spices in your cabinet while the gormet spices have a richer smell that is much different. Think of it like a coffee shop per say :)

I think that they are along the same lines, but that the Gourmet Spice is a little stronger and maybe has additional spice fragrances.

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.

what is a n eye mask
what is a n eye mask and how well does it work

answer 1
In my experience, there are two basic types of eye masks.

The first type is made of cloth, usually satin, and serves to block out light so you can get your "beauty sleep."

The second type is a silicone mask that contains a small amount of gel sealed inside it. You refridgerate it and apply it cool. It soothes tired and puffy eyes by way of the properties of the cooling gel. The silicone/plastic is generally clear so these eye masks do not cut off light the way fabric ones do. Haven't tried wearing a fabric one on top of a gel one, though.

the eyes mask you put in the fridge and then wear it while sitting at home, it helps with de-puffing eyes. Ones I have had in the past have been able to go in the mircrowave, but I don't know if the ones from bath and body works can go in the microwave, but that would really help me relieve tension.

It depends on which Eye Mask you are talking about. There is one that is made by Dr Wexler. I use the product and I love it. My eyes do not feel tight underenth or on the lid. The eye mask helps smooth the area around the eyes and make the skin feel more young.

The majority of people do not need super strength salon products such as Warren Tricomi. There are many great salon-level hair care products carried by BBW. These should satisfy the needs of virtually everybody.

That said, I do believe some people have very "distressed, impossible to deal with" hair. In those instances, you have to decide for yourself what your individual cost:benefit ratio is when it comes to budgeting for hair care products.

The Tricomi salons are some of the best in the country. I can't imagine that their haircare line is any less quality than their salons.

I personally am quite fond of the Fekkai line, but I've heard some wonderful things about the Warran Tricomi and Mop lines as well.

If you'd like, ask one of the sales associates at the store to dram you a small sample of the shampoo. That way you can try it without buying it.

That, or buy the full size or travel size bottle, and if you don't like the results, you can return it! Bath and Body Works has a 100% return policy. No sale is ever final!

It is true that Fond Farewells and Signature Classics are online only, although some have stated they do appear in stores at Semi-Annual Sales. That I cannot confirm.

Sometimes a product that is limited edition, for instance the "solid" perfume for Butterfly Flower that just came out, doesn't hit all stores equally in time. I believe Flagships may get such products sooner.

Lastly, Flagships carry extended product assortment. Meaning you will find 3rd party vendors not present in standard BBW stores. Such product lines are 100% Pure, Jaqua, Phyto, Davies Gate, Molton Brown, and Mustela just to name a few.

There are still other 3rd party vendors that exist only online, not in any stores Flagship or otherwise. Some of these offer a very limited no. of products, sometimes only one product, making not much sense to carry them in the stores taking up valuable space.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.

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.

Question
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!

If your hands are extremely dry I would recommend the hand cream. It is MUCH more moisturizing than the body cream or lotion.
