Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Shower Gel Review

Bath&BodyWorks' Sweet Pea Shower Gel is a fruity-floral body wash that's said to smell like sweet pea and juicy pears, a Bath&BodyWorks Classic. I purchased it in store for $3.33 on a 3/$10 deal. The 3 fl oz travel size usually goes for $5, and the regular 8oz size goes for $10.50. Bath&BodyWorks products are not tested on animals, and are made in the USA.
The gel is thin and pink. You don't need very much of it to wash your whole body, because it lathers extremely well. This shower gel's formula isn't anything special, honestly. It just keeps you clean and smelling good. It isn't moisturizing, drying, exfoliating, or irritating.

Bath&BodyWorks says Sweet Pea's scent notes are Sweet Pea Petals, Watery Pear, Freesia, Fresh Raspberries, and Soft, Delicate Musk. Its apparently blended by master perfumers. Sweet Pea is slightly strong, and very fruity, with a hint of floral-ness. There's also a zesty sourness to it. This is the kind of scent I love! The base of Sweet Pea is definitely floral, but the fruitiness is what really catches your attention. Its easy to pick up both the raspberry and pear, they blend together great. I can't pick up any musk. Actually, I lied. If I take a super deep whiff of Sweet Pea I can smell the musk, but only a tiny bit. It's certainly delicate like they said.

The scent of Sweet Pea is kinda strong, but also light if that makes sense? It's a great summer scent, I can definitely see this shower gel being very pleasant to use in a cold bath on a hot July or August day.Sweet Pea lingers on the skin for a couple hours. If layered with the matching body spray and/or lotion, it'd probably last all day. I also think Sweet Pea could mix well with a scent like Charmed Life.

I really like Bath&BodyWorks Sweet Pea shower gel. The gel lathers well, a little goes a long way. The scent is fantastic. The packaging is really pretty. When purchased on one of Bath&BodyWorks' frequent deals, its also a very good value. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Sweet Pea. Not many other people must have anything bad to say either, its one of Bath&BodyWork's most popular scents and is available in 37 different products. I definitely recommend this scent and will likely purchase the body spray, and perhaps repurchase the shower gel. Sweet Pea is full of fruity-floral win.
