Body Recipe Sweat Pea Fantasy Lotion and Shower Gel

I've always loved the scent of Bath and Body Works' Sweet Pea fragrance. I usually get my hands on them when I get them as gifts from relatives abroad. I don't really look for resellers just to purchase them... it's too much of a hassle, I guess, since I'm not too particular with my lotions. As long as they moisturize and smell good, I'm happy.

 Then came this package from HBC containing their Body Recipe Sweat Pea Fantasy Lotion and Shower Gel products. I was kinda excited when I saw it. I kept repeating in my mind, "Sana kasing bango sya ng Bath and Body Works!" And I wasn't disappointed. It really smells quite like it.

 I like the consistency of the lotion. It's not too thick that it gets sticky on my skin but it still moisturizes. The smell is also long lasting. Been already hours and I can still smell it on me.

Body Recipe Sweat Pea Fantasy Lotion Directions and Ingredients

 I'm a fan of shower gels rather than solid soaps. I've tried different brands and scents from strawberry yogurt to floral scents. And since I love this scent so much, I've been using it everyday since I got the package. It's not that foamy but the scent is just refreshing!

The Sweet Pea scent comes with a Body mist as well. And Body Recipe has 2 other fragrance for this natural skin care line --- Cucumber Bliss and Jasmine Dream.

"The Body Recipe shower gels and lotions contain naturally-derived moisturizers that nourish skin while the body mists are infused with relaxing scents to make each spritz an enjoyable experience. Cucumber tightens open pores and has a cooling effect to gently soothe skin. Jasmine’s skin healing properties are perfect for dry, sensitive skin while sweet pea locks in moisture leaving skin soft and smooth."

 Now I don't have to buy a bottle worth Php300-400 worth from BBW. I can just get one that is pretty much like it from all HBC stores for only Php150 - hand and body lotion, Php186 - shower gel and Php99.75 body mist. That's around 50% off! :)

I definitely think that it's a good find. It's a very cheap alternative that delivers almost the same results. I'm curious to try the other two scents though!

And another exciting promo from HBC:
