Bath and Body Works Cooling Mist in White Citrus Review

Ok, I admit I buy into all the worst gimmicky products. I'm kinda feeling like Bath and Body Works Cooling Mist is a gimmick but I can't help but love it. Have you tried these yet? I actually ventured into Bath and Body Works a week or two ago (not by choice, my friend Jen absolutely had to go inside or have a coronary. I choose inside rather than perform CPR), braved the scary, scary vulture SA's, and picked up Bath and Body Works Cooling Mist in White Citrus.


Bath and Body Works Cooling Mist in White Citrus is a refreshing, cooling body spray. Yes, that would be the gimmick part I suppose. It seems terribly pointless to have a cooling mist that's scented. I love the idea as it does feel wonderfully refreshing on my skin and very cool but the fact that it's scented takes away from the point. Kinda? Sorta? Or maybe that's me.

But the good news is not only is it cooling and refreshing it smells darn nice too. White Citrus is the newest scent to the BBW line and quite lovely. The scent is very fresh and clean with touches of citrus, a tiny itty bitty hint of musk, and plenty of crispy green notes. It's been a while since any one scent from BBW has captured my interest but this is nice. Actually I liked it so much I may go ahead and order the other bits such as the body splash and such online. What? You didn't think I'd go back into the store did you? Once a year is plenty to make my pilgrimage through a Bath and Body Works shop. When the SA's learn how to get off my back that's when I'll start heading back in store.

I'm kinda feeling the love for Bath and Body Works White Citrus and Muse Approving it for purchase! Pretty blend for Summer! Get the cooling mist you can be cool and smell pretties.

Anyone try?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

Tell the Muse!

I'm a black chamomile girl. Unfortunately, that means if it's not BC, I'm not interested in the product. Strangely enough the website started selling some brands I've been eyeing (sekkisei and the lippman collection-yay nail polish)

I have the worst habit of clicking post instead of preview. What I meant to say is, I like spraying mists so I might try it out. BBW always has neat promotions.

I really want to like this scent, but I think it smells like dish soap. I have a hard time finding any scent I really like there.

hi Stephanie

So sorry about my delayed reply :-D

Hmmmmm....maybe sorta LOL but it does kinda have a twang that dish soap doesn't have :-D hehe!

I've long since left the BBW scene since I too find it hard to locate one scent that I really like :(

I prefer VS over BBW anyday!

hello, i tried it in store.. and the only reason i didnt get it is because i noticed the scent disappears. but maybe its just because i myself got used to it? can you tell me.. does the scent last throughout the day?

hiya marisa!

hmmmm it could be. bbw has an odd item or two that sometimes just don't last. It's all about body chemistry. I experience the same problem with some BBW scents. This lasted on me well but others not so much. Like right now I love the CO Bigelow Lemon parfum but it gets sucked right in and only lasts an hour or two at best :(
