Bath and Body Works- Celebration Line 2016

I recently picked up some of the body care from the new Celebration body care line at Bath and Body Works. Before even trying out anything from this line, I was instantly drawn in by the packaging. It is glamorous, glittery, girly- absolute perfection! This line is very different than anything else in my Bath and Body Works collection. First of all, the shape of the body lotions are different than the regular packaging of the lotion. I do not know if Bath and Body works is shifting towards changing the bottles again from what they are now or if this is just for the celebration line. I am in love with the shimmering packaging, it just screams CELEBRATE. I am absolutely thrilled with everything about this line: the packaging, design, and the fragrances.

I picked up a body cream and body lotion of each scent at the $3.75 sale, and I used a $10 off $30 coupon- making them $2.50 each, A STEAL!!

First, I will talk about what may be the most popular in this line- Champagne Toast. I am a huge fan of the Champagne Toast candle, so I had high hopes for the body care line. I was not disappointed! This is perfect for the holiday season and to wear year-round.  If you can only get one thing from this line, I would suggest Champagne Toast. This sweet and fruity scent will give you reason to celebrate!

” Cheers to a sparkling blend of pink champagne, golden nectarine, and sugared musk”

Top Notes: Vintage Champagne, Sparkling Tangerine

Mid Notes: Red Hibiscus, White Nectarine, Black Currant Chambord, Juicy Passionfruit

Dry Notes: Plum Wood, Sugared Musk, Vanilla Extract

The next scent I reached for was Pink Confetti. I threw this in my basket without thinking twice or even smelling it- I mean, just look at this packaging! Nothing beats pink glitter. Once I put this on my skin, I realized it smelled like another BBW lotion I love, Strawberry Bourbon and Vanilla. I absolutely loved Strawberry Bourbon, so I was happy that this scent was similar. I absolutely love this one for the pretty pink packaging and the stand-out strawberry fragrance.

“Celebrate with a fresh blend of red raspberry, juicy pear, and crystal jasmine”

Top Notes: Cassis leaves, William Pear, Pink Strawberry

Mid Notes: Apricot Nectar, Sparkling Jasmine, Peony Petals

Dry Notes: Creamy Vanilla, Marshmallow, Bourbon Woods, Crystallized Musk

Next up is Wrapped in Sugar. This is a very comforting scent, it reminds me a little of Beach Nights from the summer line. The main scents that stand out to me are marshmallow and vanilla, with a tiny hint of coconut.

“Wrap yourself in a warm blend of coconut martini, marshmallow musk, and sheer amber”

Top Notes: Sparkling Mandarin, Touch of Apple, Coconut Cosmo Martini Accord

Mid Notes: Heliotrope, Sheer Jasmine, Toasted Coconut Flakes

Dry Notes: Marshmallow Musk, Amber, Warm Woods

Finally, we have the beautiful Cocktail Dress- a beautiful floral fragrance. My first thought when I put this on was that it smells expensive! I am not usually a huge fan of floral because they are often way too strong, but I think this one is perfect. I did NOT expect to love this one when I read “crystal peonies”, but they really did an amazing job with this one. I feel like the scent got better and better the longer it was on my skin.

My Favorite PocketBacs

In case you didn’t already know- I am a Bath and Body Works fanatic! Lotions, candles,body wash- they are like Pokemon to me- I want to “catch them all”! jasmine

(probably your face right now at my horrible jokes)

ANYWAY, my obsession lately has been PocketBacs. As a college student, I am constantly on the go and I like how easy it is to pull these out whenever and wherever I need them. My collection has gotten pretty big, but of course I still want more. The convenient packaging, the adorable names and labels, and of course, the irresistible scents keep me constantly searching for new ones.

Today I wanted to share with you what I consider to be MUST HAVES! These are my absolute favorites that I have found so far at BBW, but I will make sure to post another favorites post as new ones come out! I have a ton of favorites, but I narrowed it down to 10 current faves!

   1. Girls Just Want To Have Sun- I am in love with the packaging and title of this sweet summer scent!

 

Just Peachy PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 2. Just Peachy- This blend of peaches, honeysuckle and blood orange is addicting! The scent is also strong, but not too strong! It smells like you just sprayed a spritz of your body spray instead of putting on hand sanitizer.

 

 3. Boardwalk Vanilla Cone- If you only grab one thing from this list, make it Boardwalk Vanilla Cone. I loved the scent in store, but when I took it home- it became an instant favorite. It really smells like a vanilla ice cream cone!

 

4.Watermelon Lemonade- This is one of my favorite scents from BBW. I love the candle, the body care, the hand soap- and the pocketbac version is just as sweet!

 

Dreamer - Berry Wish PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works5. Dreamer- It’s a unicorn- need I say more? The packaging on this is ADORABLE and it smells like sweet berries and vanilla.

 

 

Lemon Buttercream PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 6. Lemon Buttercream- I am in love with a discontinued BBW scent, lemon vanilla. This so far is the closest BBW has come to matching that scent! It smells like sweet lemon cake to me!

Liquid Sunshine PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 7. Liquid Sunshine- My first thought when I smelled this was that it literally smells like liquid sunshine. The lemon / floral combo makes me think of happy, summer days.

Sweet Pea PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 8. Sweet Pea- Sweet Pea was the first lotion I ever got at BBW and I will always remember how much my mom hated it haha! Sweet Pea has recently been given a makeover and I think the new packaging is so cute. Described as a blend of ” sweet pea petals, sheer freesia, and luscious raspberry”, this girly scent is still one of my favorites!

 

A Thousand Wishes PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 9. A Thousand Wishes- This is one of BBW’s most popular and well known scents. The packaging is super cute and I love that the sanitizer has a hint of glitter in it. Don’t worry, you won’t look like a disco ball! The smell is amazing year round.

 

Pretty in Pink PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Soap/Sanitizer - Bath & Body Works 10. Pretty In Pink- Of course I grabbed two of these.. Pink is my favorite color so I love the look of this pretty pocketbac. The smell is absolutely breathtaking! It smells as good as a cupcake, without the calories.

 

Well that is all for now. Again, it was EXTREMELY hard for me to narrow this down so I would love to post more favorites lists in the future!

What are your must have pocketbacs?
