Bath&BodyWorks Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion Review

Bath&BodyWorks' Twisted Peppermint is part of their beloved Holiday Traditions Collection. According to Bath&BodyWorks, their lotions are "America's #1 Body Lotion! Infused with Shea Butter and our exclusive Daily Moisture Complex our enhanced lotion contains more of what skin loves, leaving it feeling incredibly soft, smooth, and nourished. Fortified with nutrient rich ingredients like protective Vitamin E, and conditioning Vitamin B5, our fast absorbing, non greasy formula delivers 16 hours of continuous moisture." Each Bath&BodyWorks body lotion contains 236ml (8 fl oz) and sells for $12.50, but 88ml (3 fl oz) travel size bottles are also available for $5 (or 3/$10). The Semi Annual Sale has just begun, and all the Holiday Traditions scents are marked down significantly! Bath&BodyWorks is cruelty free. This lotion was made in America. 

Twisted Peppermint has such cute packaging! This lotion comes in a clear, rectangular bottle with a reflective fuchsia cap. The label is just precious! A raccoon is holding a peppermint candy with a little bird perched on it. The back label offers a product and scent description, as well as a full ingredient list. All packaging is recyclable. 

Twisted Peppermint is "sweet peppermint with a whimsical twist of sugar and vanilla" that "makes the season bright."

Top Notes: Sweet Peppermint
Mid Notes: Mint, White Sugar
Dry Notes: Vanilla, Musk, Balsam

I am all about peppermint in the winter - candy canes and peppermint mochas are my thing, so I'm not sure why I haven't tried Twisted Peppermint before. I guess I was just side tracked by the sweet, sugar cookie-esque scent of Vanilla Bean Noel. Twisted Peppermint is equally festive and enticing! This scent smells light straight up peppermint in the bottle, but it develops a bit on the skin. Once applied, Twisted Peppermint still smells like sweet peppermint, with a touch more sugar, yet a little musky. The scent lingers on the skin and on my towels for a couple hours after application.

Bath&BodyWorks Body Lotions are nice, but pretty basic. This light pink lotion is pretty thin and easy to apply. Bath&BodyWorks lotions sink in quickly and never feel greasy or sticky. The moisture provided by this lotion is long lasting, easily half a day, and leaving skin feeling silky and smooth. Though I don't see peppermint oil in the ingredient list, I find Twisted Peppermint kinda tingly on the skin. I find it pleasant, but it may be irritating to those with sensitive skin.

I like the Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion a lot! The packaging is just adorable. This lotion has a moisturizing formula that's great for day to day use. Twisted Peppermint is a little tingly, which is the only way it differs from the standard formula. Twisted Peppermint smells amazing, like a candy cane, perfect for winter. I'm glad I decided to try Twisted Peppermint this year! I'll almost definitely repurchase it next winter, and I recommend it for sure!
