Bath and Body Works Shimmer Gel and Body Lotion Duo in Sweet Pea *UPDATED

What a mouthful of a title, huh?

Obviously, I *love, Love, LOOOOOVE* this.  So much that I forgot to take pictures of it until it was at this level!

I'm sure pretty much anyone who has ever stepped into a Bath and Body works has smelled their Sweet Pea scent as it is one of their classics, so this review will be more on the actual product than the scent (which is amazing).

You turn the top to get more lotion or more shimmer and my only complaint about the product is that the balance in the middle is way off, and it wasn't just my bottle as a friend who bought one when we were there had the same complaint about hers.  It really isn't a big deal, though, a bit of tinkering finds the mix right for you, and I do love the pump top much more than the tube or squeezy kind.  While you do still have to pick it up and push the pump due to the way it is set, it is still much easier than fiddling with caps and lids when you have slippery lotion hands.  Some bottles I've seen, I wonder if the designer of it has even ever USED lotion.

It tends to leave a lot of shimmer on your hands, but just a light shimmer on the rest of your body if you set it at roughly 1/2 and 1/2 like I do.  I took a picture of my hands since I couldn't get the shimmer to show up on the camera on my arm, so here's an idea of what it comes out as, only not quite that concentrated!

When it comes out of the bottle, it is this really pretty sparkly pink swirl, so its like getting out of the shower then OMGSPARKLYHAPPINESS!  I love this stuff and can't wait to get more when I run out, so thank the Universe we live close to a B&BW outlet.  It leaves my skin soft, shimmery, and smelling so great that it clings to my clothes, the sheets, everything!  Not to mention that since it gets on the sheets, the Wookie has been looking FABULOUS!

Verdict?  Adore it.  A wonderful product and I am very happy with it.  Will definitely repurchase!

***UPDATE - I finished this entire container and bought TWO more.  Another of Sweet Pea and one in Paris Amour and am now halfway through both those bottles as well...Impressive, considering there are others I use, as well.  Variety is the spice of life and all that.  :)  However, I plan to keep buying this stuff as long as they keep making it!
