Bath and Body Works 
At The Beach Collection Review



Hi Divas

It has been a wonderful Summer in Cape Town. I have been enjoying being out doors and taking advantage of the sun. In Cape Town, the vibe during the warmer months are always very joyful, relaxing and adventurous. We love to be out and about exploring different places and having fun experiences. My absolute favourite thing to do during the Summer time is going to the beach. I could stare at the sea for hours. I love the feeling of warm sand between my toes and the sea air blowing through my hair. It's one of the most wonderful feelings to me. When I saw the Bath and Body Works At The Beach collection in Qatar, my heart skipped a beat! To have the beach experience in a fragrance bottle sounds like total bliss to me. I just had to purchase it and take it back to Cape Town.


At The Beach Fine Fragrance Mist
The body mist is packaged in a beautiful 236ml sea blue plastic bottle. It reminds me of clear cyan ocean waters. It has a very tranquil and classy aquatic style to it. I love the fine touch of the gold cap as it gives a sophisticated look. The packaging is chic and serene therefore any age can appreciate it. The fragrance is described as a vacation scent with Frangipani, Coconut, Bergamot and Sea Salt as its main notes. At the first spritz the scent of frangipani and coconut definitely burst through. The white flower, frangipani is soft and sweet whereas the coconut has a fresh and tropical scent. The blend of these two aromas transports us into a paradise holiday destination. The citrus bergamot and the savoury sea salt scents are base notes that subtly seep through. They make a great combination in toning down the sweet and fruity main notes. This fragrance has a wonderful balance of sweet summer mixed with refreshing and cooling waters. I love that it is not overpowering or weak. It strikes just the right notes to make this a graceful yet fun holiday fragrance. The only gripe I have with this mist is that it is not long lasting. After a few hours the scent fades and I have to spray one or two times again. I wish Bath and Body Works made this into an actual perfume. I would be all over that fragrance as it would last longer too. If you love scents that transport you to tropical beaches and paradise destinations, then this one is for you.


At The Beach Shea & Vitamin E Shower Gel
I bought the travel size in 74ml. How I wish I purchased the full size tube. I adore this shower gel. It has a similar cyan shade to the fragrance and the consistency of the gel is perfect. It has a very moisturising feel to it and it lathers well. Thanks to the shea butter and Vitamin E, your skin will feel soft and refreshed after using it. It will refresh tired and sun kissed skin. The gel as a soft coconut beach scent but the shea butter definitely tones it down and overpowers it. The packaging is so cute too. Anything with seahorses and starfishes immediately makes my heart happy. This tube draws inspiration from the gorgeous coral reefs in design.

At The Beach 24 Hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream
I too bought the body cream in the 70g travel size. How I regret this decision so much! Please remind me to always purchase full sizes at a Bath and Body Works store next time. Unlike the other products, the cream is packaged in a white tube with fun summer motifs on it. This is a lovely shea butter cream that has hints of coconut and frangipani. It is great to use after a long hot day as it moisturises and soothes the skin. I would apply this all over my body at night and I would wake in the morning smelling like a sweet fresh coconut. I love that it is not the tacky artificial coconut scent that everyone hates. This one smells like a real fresh coconut with a blend of citrus and sweet aromas. The cream as the perfect consistency for hot days. It makes the skin soft without feeling too heavy.

This sounds like such a wonderful range - I wish we could get Bath and Body works products more easily in SA ... My aunt bought me over hand sanitizers and candles in December and I will be sad when it's all finished.

Yes! It's an amazing collection. The scent is hypnotizing. Glad they have it again this year. They've also introduced a SUN COLLECTION. Haven't been in the store to take a whiff though.
