Review: Bath & Body Works Dancing Waters Triple Moisture Body Cream

So today's review is for something I just recently realized that I am almost through with, and it is Bath & Body Works Dancing Waters Triple Moisture Body Cream. Now, I'm not a really big fan of many Bath & Body Works scents just because they smell too sweet/sugary or fake. Dancing waters, however, as well as their cucumber scent, is not too overpowering. It smells fresh and clean, so it's perfect for everyday use. My boyfriend is picky about lotions and stuff because he usually doesn't like the scents, but I would actually catch him using this stuff when he was over, which says a lot, haha! I think a lot of guys would like this scent. It actually kinda smells like mens cologne or shaving cream, but in a nice-not-too-strong way.

I don't know if you can tell, but I've used this cream so much that the clear part of the container has actually yellowed a bit!

Used a ton!!! It usually takes me months to go through a lotion, simply because I have a lot of them, but I've been liking this one so much that I've been using it consistently out of the shower.

It's a simple squeeze tube.

The texture of this cream is perfect, absolutely perfect. It's in between a thicker lotion and a body butter. Not so thin that it runs, and not so thick that it's difficult to spread. It's like a body butter in that if I put a glob of this on my hand and turn it upside down, it won't drip.

Rubbed in:

More rubbed in:

I don't know if you can see, but the more it is rubbed in, it kinda melts a bit. Where as body butters (the thicker ones from Bodycology, for ex), then to stay thick and in turn be difficult to rub in. This one softens rubs in beautifully. I love you it is as moisturizing as a very thick body butter, but without any of the greasy residue you get from cheaper butters. Also, I tend to not use body butters on my neck, shoulders, back, etc because I sometimes get the odd pimple there and I don't want to risk clogging the pores. I don't have to worry about that with this one. In all the time I've used this lotion I have never broken out because of it, which is awesome if you do have an issue with bacne. The big selling point of this cream is that it is extremely moisturizing. I put this on once and my skin is good for the day. If you have very dry skin, I highly recommend you try this cream!!! It's $12 retail, but Bath and Body Works often has sales where you can get them much cheaper.

  1. Ehh, im not a big fan of BBW stuff at all. It smells so cloying and FAKE! Ill give this a try tho!

  2. Do you think this would work well for someone with rosacea?

  3. I think this would irritate your skin if you have rosacea. Look for something gentler. I know Aveeno has some awesome stuff!
