Two great companies. Two great sets. One great scent.
I did express my undying love for the smell of Japanese Cherry Blossom in my previous post. So I decided to compare these products.
BBW – Bath and Body Works (left): Body lotion, shower gel, perfume
TBS – The Body Shop (right): Body lotion, shower gel, perfume
And huzzah! The resemblance is uncanny! (it’s not like they’re the same scent or anything…)
The Body Shop’s products are easier to open and apply, however Bath and Body Works feels smoother on the skin. The Body Shop has a more light, feminine smell to its products, as it they are more natural and less processed. BBW products are more overpowering, last a little longer. I remember hearing that BBW care more about the scent whereas TBS cautiously use natural scents and ingredients, making them less artificial and processed. So if you’re more concerned with the ingredients and the overall making (environment-wise) of the product – then I suggest The Body Shop. However, if the scent, range and price are more important, then Bath and Body Works is the one for you.
