At The Beauty Section

Posted by Kero at Wednesday, November 10, 2010
I splurge on fragrant body moisturizers. Although the weather in UAE rarely allow us to generously apply moisturizer at daytime (as it can get very hot and sticky) -- i love, love to sleep smelling yummy ((^_^))

Here are my two favorite shops for body moisturizers.


The Body Shop for their body butter. A soft skin pampered in papaya body butter is the next best thing to wake up to in the morning =)



And I was ecstatic that finally, Bath & Body Works opened in Dubai.  Over the weekend, I asked Hubby if we can drive to Mirdiff City Center and check it out. The store was huge and very, very busy. Oh it's one of those things you love about America!



I was soo thrilled to be reunited with one of my favorite winter scents: Black Raspberry Vanilla. I always opt for fruity scents on summer and vanilla based scents for winter. To have them both in one lovely moisturizer bottle is simply gorgeous.

45AED for 330ml

Really, if you want to make me happy, they're all I want for Christmas. ((^_^))

i totally envy you... i love B&BW's rice flower and shea and the japanese cherry blossom body lotions but they are not available here yet.. and they are so expensive on korean online shops.. pati VSecret, mahal din, kkkk...

We have The Body Shop here but the products are also crazily expensive... kkk...

@Jehan: I still have to try Rice Flower. Thankies for the idea. Jap Cherry Blossom was my first BBWs, courtesy of Hubby's classmate.

Fave ko din ang Sweet Pea, Sea Island Cotton, and Warm Vanilla sugar.

VSecret is also available here but I haven't bought any. My Aunt used to send me those pretty bottles when I was in Pinas kaya ngayon, I want to try something new =)

Oh!that's good that B&BW has a shop now in Dubai.It's a bit more expensive than VS but it's worth it.
The price is more expensive there i guess.I hope they have all those 10% off or the free after purschasing 3 items like what they offer here.
Anyway,enjoy the heavenly smell of Bath & Body Works!!!!

I use TBS products couples of time such as lip butter, body butter and cherry blossom body lotion. Turns out that the body butter and cherry blossom are too sticky for me. I stop using them except the lip butter. Really love it :)

Hop here from GT and follow you
Happy Thursday

Body Shop products are really nice and they all smell yummy. And their body butter feels SO good on the skin. Kaso lang they're a bit pricey, so it's not exactly for everyday use.

hahaha, nasa Christmas wishlist na ba? I was a body shop fanatic too pero noong nag-stop ako sa work e natigil na, pricey compared sa ibang brands.
i haven't tried any product from body and bath works yet.

I love BBW products, too! The Body Shop... I own a product, but it was a gift to me. I still haven't shopped there yet, I find their products quite expensive.
