Review: e.l.f. Bath & Body Products
In addition to fabulous, recessionista-friendly makeup and makeup tools, did you know that e.l.f. also makes bath and body products? I'm ashamed to say that I wasn't aware of this until recently, but once I found out, I knew I had to get my paws on them (in case you didn't know, I am a serious a bath and body product junkie). Thanks to the great staff at e.l.f. I was lucky enough to receive a shipment of the above "Peony Petal" Gift Set to try out. Yay!
This set includes the following items:
Bath Gel (14.2 oz)
Hand Cream (4 oz)
Body Lotion (7 oz)
Body Butter (7 oz)
Hand Soap (6.76 oz)
1 bath pouf
And it all comes shipped in a reusable wicker basket. Cute! The price for this set is $15 and, sold separately, each product is $4. The scents available include Peony Petal, Cucumber Melon, Lavendar Blossom, Pineapple Mango and Vanilla Coconut.
Now, being a long-time user of Bath & Body Works products, I've got to say that this line by e.l.f. definitely gives BBW a run for its money. At just a fraction of the cost of BBW products, I found each one of the items in this set to be comparable, if not slightly better, than its Bath and Body Works counterpart. Talk about a bargain!
Oh and I can't forget to talk about the scent, "Peony Petals". At first whiff I thought this reminded me of BBW's "Sweet Pea". But after using these products for a while now, I realize that while it's indeed a floral scent, it's cleaner and softer than "Sweet Pea". I don't know about you, but "Sweet Pea" can get a bit cloying and heavy for me. "Peony Petals" is a clean, soft, sweet floral with a rose undertone and it's just lovely. I think it would be a great scent for any woman, regardless of age. I should also add that e.l.f. definitely doesn't skimp on scent--each product is highly fragranced in a manner that is comparable to BBW products.
All in all, I can say that if you love BBW, I think you will definitely enjoy the bath and body products from e.l.f. At a fraction of the price, they are certainly a great alternative and I cannot wait to try "Vanilla Coconut" and "Pineapple Mango" next. :)
