FRIDAY FAVORITES -- Bath & Body Works' 'Lemon Vanilla' Shower Gel

Mmm... Lemon... Huh? What? Oh, sorry. I was just sniffing my bottle of shower gel for like the billionth time. I know I've said it in a video, and I'm pretty sure I said it here.. but.. citrus scents are definitely some of my favorites.

This shower gel is no exception. It's a very clean, sweet lemon scent that reminds me of a body spray I used to have in middle school. Anyone remember those Juice Bar body sprays? They looked like this:

And they had Cotton Candy, Gummi Bear and Lemonade.. I begged my mom to buy me all three, but lemonade was totally my favorite!

Anyways, B&BW gets everything right with this product. The formula is great, as always. And the scent is perfect. Sometimes I feel like lemon-y scented products can almost have an acrid note, be too strong, or smell like a household cleaning product.. but this gel smells light, clean and sweet. I don't know if this sounds weird (or even makes sense) but it smells like what a lemon Pez tastes like. I know! Weird description, right?

I will say, however, that I don't really detect the smell of vanilla at all. So if you were looking for a distinct vanilla scent in this product, you might get disappointed. My theory is that it provides the sweet, almost creamy note to the overall fragrance, but I might be wrong.

And that's it for this Friday! Do you have a favorite shower gel that you just love? If so, I'd love to hear about it in the comments!

Happy Friday and I hope everyone has a great weekend! Be sure to give your mom an extra hug for Mother's Day!
