Bath&BodyWorks Be Enchanted Body Lotion Review




 Bath&BodyWorks describes Be Enchanted as "frosted florals sweetened with sparkling sugared pomegranates inspired by all that glitters." Be Enchanted isn't really a scent that appealed to me, but at the time I was running out of new scents to try. I grabbed a little 3 fl oz (88 ml) travel sized bottle during the Semi Annual Sale for just $1.25. Travel sized lotions typically retail for $5, or 3/$10; the full sized 8 fl oz bottle retails for $11. Bath&BodyWorks describes their body lotion formula as "fortified with powerful ingredients like super conditioning shea butter, fast absorbing jojoba oil, and protective Vitamin E to hydrate skin with moisture that lasts all day. Non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and completely to leave skin feeling ingredient soft, smooth, and nourished, making it the perfect daily moisturizer". Bath&BodyWorks is a cruelty free company that makes all their products in America.

 Be Enchanted comes in the same style of packaging all Signature Collection lotions come in. The bottle is made of translucent pink plastic molded into a curvy shape. The bottle is topped by a matching pop up cap. The bottle is recyclable. Be Enchanted's label artwork kinda confuses me, I'm not entirely sure what it's trying to depict. It features the scent name in blue cursive lettering, and many silver branches. A blue and fuchsia flower also grace the label. the back of the bottle offers a full ingredient list.
Top Notes: Mouthwatering Citrus, Iced Pomegranate, Chilled Wildberries, Crystallized Passionfruit
Mid Notes: Sheer Honeysuckle, Floral Frosted Bouquet, Sugared Violet, Dewfruit, Asian Pear
Dry Notes: Whipped Vanilla, Creamy Musk, Sandalwood

Oh jeez. I feel like that was the most drawn out, ridiculous list of scent notes Bath&BodyWorks has ever written. Frosted Floral Bouquet? That don't make no dang sense. Get it together, Bath&BodyWorks. Also, that's a total of 12 scent notes, which is an awful lot for a lotion that smells like one thing; sugared berries. Just berries, nothing else really, except maybe a touch of musk. The scent is very light and has almost no lasting power. Be Enchanted is the closest thing to an unscented lotion that Bath&BodyWorks makes.
 This lotion is Bath&BodyWorks standard, white and thin in consistency. A little goes a long way, these tiny travel bottles last me about a week if I apply it every day. As promised, Bath&BodyWorks lotions sink in super fast and are never greasy. This lotion formula is adequately moisturizing for normal skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and comfortable. By no means is Bath&BodyWorks' lotion is the best one out there, but its pretty good. (Though I've been favoring Avon's Naturals lotion lately).
Bath&BodyWorks Be Enchanted left a lot to be desired. To me. the scent is just so bland. I'm kinda grumpy that Bath&BodyWorks decided to discontinue Secret Wonderland and Midnight Pomegranate, but not a boring fragrance like this one. Be Enchanted is a good choice if you find other Bath&BodyWorks scents too sweet or strong. As with any scent, its really just a matter of personal preference. I wouldn't repurchase anything from the Be Enchanted line, it just isn't for me.
