Question
can u use a hand cleansing hand gel without water? Like a regular hand sanitizer?

answer 1
No.

Only the PocketBac, the waterless foam sanitizer, and anti-bac wipes can be used without water.

The soaps sold by BBW that come in the large pump dispensers (deep cleansing, moisturizing, and foam) must be used in conjunction with water and rinsed off.

there is deep cleansing hand soap which of course needs water then there is the deep cleansing hand gel, which is now in pocket bac, and that is a waterless sanitizer that works fantastic.

answer 3
There are three types of Anti-Bacterial Hand Soap that require water, and three variants of these soaps that are waterless hand sanitizers.

The first type of soap is the Deep Cleansing. This is the clear, gel soap that has little beads in them. They are my personal favorite. The second type is the Moisturizing. It looks like lotion in a soap bottle. It's a solid color. It's really good for dry skin or in the winter. The last kind is foaming. The foaming is a colored liquid. The bottle looks slightly more plump than the other two with a different top.

The hand sanitizers are similar to the soap. The foaming ones come in a cylindrical bottle, the moisturizing one with lotion comes in a tube that looks slightly like the Body Cream tubes. The Deep Cleansing come in the smallest size. They are called PocketBac.

I hope this helps. The latter three I described are the hand sanitizers and do not require water. Any of the former three I mentioned require water.

Why is it so difficult to open the Wallflower scent bottles?

Sorry I misspoke in earlier post. The thing unusual about the turn is that it is Clockwise, as opposed to us being used to unscrewing things CounterClockwise. Sorry if I confused anynone.

answer 2
Certainly it is a little awkward in that the top unscrews in the opposite direction (counterclockwise) than most of us are used to. However, I am nearly ambidextrous and I still have a difficult time. I have to use one of those thin gripper pads or else I'll rub a blister at the base of the thumb on my left hand from opening several bulbs.

There is another factor at play. The bulbs have a slight vacuum seal to them. If you notice, when you open them, there is a slight "pop" or subtle change in resistance (like in the internal pressure). I imagine this is to keep the contents from spilling easily or leaking b/w the threads of the bottle neck and cap.

I imagine the counterclockwise turn may be a safety mechanism, such that children would have less chance of opening them since most things unscrew clockwise. Just my guess. But being a young sufferer of osteoarthritis, I must admit it is very painful, frustrating, and difficult to open these, especially if you are changing out several bulbs at a time.

Because it opens backwards. I gt tired of fooling with them so now I keep a pair of vice grips in the kitchen drawer. It opens in a second now.

answer 4
They open opposite of the way we are used to in the USA. It's a turn to the right to loosen it, not tighten it, like it should be.

I find it effective to grip the bulb in your weaker hand (not the one you write with) and have the cap stick out around your thumb and index finger.

Then, take your dominant hand's index finger, curl it around the cap, and twist hard. It almost ALWAYS comes off easily with moderate pressure.

If not, I recommend buying one of those cheap rubber cap openers. Those work nice as well.

Because of the way they need to be put into the wallflower you twist the cap backwards ( right instead of left to get them off) and they are put on so tight so that the oil does not leak out and make a mess!

Question
Which lasts longer the Wallflowers or the Scent Ports?
How long should they last?
asked 5 years, 7 months ago
by
Wallflower1
on Body & Bath
5 answers
Answers
answer 1
The wallflowers last anywhere from 6-8 weeks, while Scentport last 4-6 weeks. This is because the Scentports contain more fragrance oils than the Wallflowers, and therefore "burn up" faster.

The rule of thumb is if you want more fragrance, use the scentport. If you want a long lasting subtle scent, the Wallflowers are the way to go.
answered 5 years, 7 months ago

answer 2
Your wallflowers last for 6-8 weeks normally and put out enough fragrance for you to smell it when you walk into and are in the room. Your Scentports last 4-6 weeks and puts out more fragrance at a less amount of time. I enjoy the wallflowers better because not only do they last longer but you get a wider variety of fragrances to choose from. Hope this is useful =]

answer 3
Beyond a shadow of a doubt - Wallflowers. The Wallflower unit does not get as hot as the ScentPort does, and as a result, does not diffuse the fragrance into the air as fast or as strong.

My ScentPorts, on average, last 2-4 weeks. I have never had a set last more than a month without either discoloring, becoming a thicker consistency of liquid, or running out.

I stick to my ScentPorts in the big rooms of my house only. The Wallflowers go in the small areas. It's much more effective that way.

Wallflowers are generally advertised to be 6-8 weeks of continuous fragrance, and the ScentPorts are advertised to last about 4-6 weeks. I notice the Wallflowers tend to last on the longer side, and the ScentPorts on the shorter side.

Mustella. Its the number one baby/maternity line in europe and can be found at bath and body works. Though, it may not be at all. I have only been in a flagship recently. They have products to use during and after pregnancy, as well as baby products designed for newborns who have extremely sensitive skin.

All three have their positives and negatives.

Deep Cleansing: This is the gel-kind with little beads in it. These are my personal favorite. I find that they do a nice job cleansing my hands. I feel like they are cleaner with this variety than any of the other two. It may just be in my head, but I think this is the best of the soaps.

Moisturizing: This is good for dry skin or in the winter. As Trisha pointed out, they get REALLY hard to get the last remnants of it out once the bottle is almost empty. It's infuriating. It is quite slick and slides off your hand easily when you put it on if your hands are wet, and I don't feel it lathers up as nicely. But the Green Tea Extract and Shea Butter make it a very nice dry-skin option.

Foaming: Seems to be a more popular option. It's really fragrant and super easy to use. Great for those daycare providers or those with kids who have very little time to scrub. It goes on easy and comes off easy. I don't feel it gets my hands as clean, but that's probably all in my head. I also find they don't last as long.

Each of the varieties will suit different people - it's all about what caters to YOU!

It depends on your preference - none of the 3 kinds clean "better" than the other ones. If you want a great basic soap, go with deep cleansing. If you like the foaming soap or you have kids who might like the fun foam, that is a very popular choice also. Personally I like the moisturizing, especially in winter with dry skin, because every time I wash with the soap it feels like I have used hand cream as well!

I prefer the foaming and the deep cleansing. With the moisturizing variety, once you get down toward the bottom of the bottle, you can't get the soap to pump out. It seems it is too thick. So you either end up wasting it or having to turn to bottle up side down, wait for it to drip down and have to take the top off and pour it into your hand.

For me it's just easier to gfet the foaming or deep cleansing. I especially prefer the DC for the kitchen. It works well if you have a dish or glass to give a quick wash to without having to pull out the dish soap.

i think they are all pretty nice.but,there are some things that distinguish them as different products other than the obvious.

i personally like the lotion soap better than the others because it moisturizes great.this would be a good bathroom soap.

the foam,i think,is more rough on your hands.it doesnt moisturize at all,but would be good in the kitchen.

the gel has the little beads in it,which i like alot.it doesnt moisturize,but it does no harm on your hands.this would also be a good kitchen soap.

i hope you take my advice and that it helps you out.

Some of the clearance or outlet stores may carry it in their locations. However, if you like white cherry blossom, you may like Blushing Cherry Blossom. It's similar to White Cherry and they just brought it back to the stores (I think it was a limited edition last spring).

Bath and Body Works image has changed greatly from when they opened their first store so many years ago. They have moved quite upscale to what they used to be.

The new packaging represents what the future of the company looks like. There are just a few simple changes.

A.) The prices have changed ever so slightly. Some have been lowered (hand cream) and others have been slightly raised (perfume).

B.) The Shower Gel and Bubble Bath were reformulated to be more fragrant and to lather better in the shower. They were also reformulated to be more moisturizing. I've noticed the fragrance lasts longer on my skin and it feels much more moisturized.

C.) Fragrance Mist is the new name for the Body Splash.

D.) The Eau de Toilette is now a large size, and much sexier. The fragrance oils have been heavily increased, in order to stay longer on your skin. They are much stronger than the old ones.

It is also worth mentioning that the OLD packaging of Black Amethyst is the only one to contain the updated Shower Gel and Bubble Bath formulas.

answer 7
The new signature collection has the exact same fragrance ingredients as the old collection. The difference is in the packaging. The look is updated to be more sophisticated and elegant. The shape of the creamy body wash bottle was changed so it won't be confused with body cream. The splash bottle is also much more sleek and simplistic. The eau de toilette bottles are larger, and the hand creams are smaller to be more purse-sized and FAA approved. The only change in the formula is that more moisture and lather were added to the shower gel and bubble bath.

Well, first I would definitely recommend trying a body scrub. The scrub would take off dead dry skin and also cleanse off any oily-ness. From there, I would recommend the new Naked lotion from True Blue Spa, because it goes on light but still has shea butter in it and so is very moisturizing, then if that is not enough, try Lay it on Thick for more moisture, or the signature collection body lotions if it is too much.

After doing some heavy research, I've found that most Signature Collection fragrances that contain any hints of rose include it in their fragrance midnotes. They are not the heaviest, nor the basest, but are the ones you smell shortly after the scent dries on your skin.

The scents with only one type of rose in it are listed here : Japanese Cherry Blossom, Moonlight Path, Peony, White Tea and Ginger, Sheer Freesia, Sun Ripened Raspberry, and Sensual Amber. I would say you would most notice the rose in Japanese Cherry Blossom and Peony. Perhaps Moonlight Path as well. The others drown out the rose fragrance.

The one with more than one rose is Blushing Cherry Blossom, which contains midnotes of Rose Damascena and Rose Juliette Greco. Probably your best bet.
