Bath and Body Works Sleep Collection: Bath and Body Works Body Wash and Massage Oil in Warm Milk and Honey Review

As the weather gets colder the nesting urge comes on rather strong. You know the feeling I'm sure. It's that feeling of wanting to stay home more often, cuddled up in your warm bed or on the couch watching a great DVD with friends or family while sipping hot chocolate or maybe by yourself with a nice pair of warm socks and a good book!

One of my favorite things to do come the cold weather is take long, warm baths! I swear that Fall and Winter is bathing season! I rarely take long, warm baths in the Summer but come the cold weather I'm jumping in the tub every night to relax and unwind after work!

I simply couldn't resist Bath and Body Works New Sweet Dreams Collection as it has luxurious written all over it and of course appeals to that nesting urge of my personality.

Last night I treated myself to an amazingly warm, relaxing bath filled with Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Bath Wash in Warm Milk and Honey. If bathing in softly scented bubbles of Warm Milk and Honey wasn't enough I decided to add a capful of Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Massage Oil! Mmm truly a relaxing experience after a really long day! I sat in the tub for over an hour with my eyes closed and just soaked it all up! Slap me and call me silly but I swear it totally worked at unwinding me and making me feel sleepy. Right after I promptly went to bed in a cloud of beautiful Milk and Honey Scented hair and body (the Muse loves to dunk her head when she's in the tube thus her hair was left smelling rather wonderful after her bath!).

It's difficult to explain the scent of Warm Milk and Honey but I'm pretty sure that Bath and Body Works did a rather fabulous job of re-creating the scent. Milk and Honey manages to be both warm and fresh with touches of vanilla, sugar, lemon, and honey. The scent starts off very fresh and light with a touch of lemon but quickly morphs into a spicy vanilla and follows up with warm touches of honey! It's a proven fact that scent has a way of evoking feelings and emotions in individuals and in this case Warm Milk and Honey makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and as my eye lids grew heavier and heavier while I was laying in the tube I firgured it was about time to get out!

I was sad to see the experience end but tonight I'll be doing the same thing....I'm addicted!

Bath and Body Works Body Wash in Warm Milk and Honey can be used in your shower or bath tub for a moisturizing bathing experience. The scent isn't overpowering and the formula isn't drying to the skin. It doesn't leave behind an overwhelming scent so if you'd like to layer on your favorite body lotion or perfume after using this it won't clash with your chosen fragrance!

Bath and Body Works Massage Oil in Warm Milk and Honey was a pleasant surprise. When I first got it I was thinking to myself what in the world am I going to do with this? Turns out it multitasks as a moisturizer on rough elbows and knees, you can use it to shave with, or use a bit in a warm bath for an all over moisturizing experience. I'll be purchasing a second one of these after I've used the first bottle.

On top of really great contents the Bath and Body Works Sleep Collection has some seriously beautiful packaging. The massage oil comes in a heavy cobalt glass bottle. If you're a sucker for gorgeous packaging you'll really appreciate the elegant, old world appeal of the bottles and jars the Sleep Collection comes packed in and of course, want to display them on a shelf in your bathroom.

All in all I'm very pleased with these two items and I'm Muse Approving them for purchase! It was nice coming home after a very long day to soak in the tub. I think I even appreciated it more than normal since I've been feeling rather weak since I've been sick! It was the perfect cure all for my hacking cough and stuffy noise!

The entire Bath and Body Works Sleep Collection is available now on the Bath and Body Works website and at your local Bath and Body Works store. The collection includes other items as well that I didn't feature here, do check them out, the Muse has her eye on the pillow mist!

I've seen these recently and tested their Black Chamomile. I totally overlooked their milk and honey but will go back to smell and maybe purchase. Anyway, when I tried the Black Chamomile lotion, the scent was so nose finally figured it out. It smells so similar to Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess edt (a summer favorite for me). I'll probably pick this up for next summer to layer. Thank you for posting!

lol i love the way these companies market their products...

theres just something about the word "warm" that will make me want to try out a bath product even more than i normally would... i mean, milk and honey is great.. generic, but great... but WARM milk and honey? it makes me think of soaking in a hot bath, then getting out and into fresh out of the drier PJs and a bed with fresh out of the drier sheets.. wrapping myself up all warm and toasty like a burrito (too bad the weather is still HOT AS ALL HELL here in LA >=( )

i received their little mailer about this product, advertising a free gift.. being a die hard fan of their aromatherapy line (ginger-orange & eucalyptus-spearmint to be exact... YUM!) i would love to try these out.. but is this line limited edition or is it permanent?

i hate LE bath/skincare products >=(

good morning paige!

I didn't try black chamomile yet but it sounds lovely..will have to go back and try it! I've never tried Bronze Goddess so it'll be new experience for me!

Warm Milk and Honey quite reminds me of the vanilla sugar but with a bit of a twang :)

Thank you for commenting Paige :)
It's always a pleasure talking to you!

hey aline :)

Me too!!!!! It's the warm plus the cool bottles that totally ensnare me into the want mode :)

awww your description is completely SPOT on :) Although LA is warm I can assure you it's cold as heck here!

I love the eucalyptus spearmint!!!!

I believe it's prob LE and available for Fall/Winter but maybe gone after Summer hits...and then you'll probably see a new sleep line next cold season :)

I do too :( makes me want to stockpile them so I never run out!

I'll get further info for ya!

So, I finally got around to purchasing these since I had a coupon (buy$10, get somthing free up to $13). I picked up the oil, lotion and the bubble bath. I love that these are in glass too. I'll be reusing the bottles once finished. I love the cobalt blue. Thanks again for posting about this!
