[REVIEW] Bath & Body Works – Stress Relief Pillow Mist + Sleep Night Time Tea Body Wash

Bath & Body Works is one of my favorite stores to shop at in the USA, because of its amazing smelling candles and soaps. But also because we don’t have it in Europe. When I was in Wisconsin for Christmas Bath & Body Works was having their semi-annual sale. I scooped up the Night Time Tea Body Wash & Foam Bath from the Sleep collection for half the price and was given the Eucalyptus Spearmint Pillow Mist from the Stress Relief collection by my boyfriends mother. Keep reading to find out if these well-known Bath & Body Works classics really calmed my nerves!

 STRESS RELIEF – EUCALYPTUS SPEARMINT PILLOW MIST

What better time to test this Eucalyptus Spearmint Stress Relief Pillow Mist than during exam period? The past weeks I have been working non-stop on my freelance work (journalism), schoolwork (exams are around the corner) and blog (posting every day). Obviously my stress level is going off the chart!

Every night for the past week I have sprayed the Stress Relief Pillow Mist on my pillow before going to bed. The first thing I noticed is that it does not really smell like eucalyptus or spearmint. If I sniff my pillow very intensely I do recognize a very subtle hint of fresh mint, but it is not as strong as I expected it to be. This, however, does not mean that the Stress Relief Pillow mist does not have a strong scent, because it definitely does.

So what does it smell like you may wonder? The first word that comes to my mind is ‘fresh’. This pillow mist by Bath & Body Works smells very clean. The scent also reminds me a bit of baby products. The scent is a tiny bit similar to the famous scent of Dutch brand Zwitsal.  The Eucalyptus Spearmint Pillow Mist has a sweet, but not over-the-top sweet scent.

The biggest question of course is if it cleared my mind and made me able to relax? The scent of this Stress Relief Pillow Mist calmed me down whenever I laid down. I also think that the fact that I sprayed this scent every night before going to bed caused me to start associating this scent with sleep. I just sprayed a little bit on my sweater to describe the scent and I am slowly starting to feel more and more sleepy.

I think the Eucalyptus Spearmint Pillow Spray from the Stress Relief line by Bath & Body Works is a great product. A bottle contains 156 ml (small enough to fit in your suitcase if you visit the USA) and costs $10. Bath & Body Works carries a lot more products of this line. Take a look HERE to see them all.

SLEEP – NIGHT TIME TEA BODY WASH & FOAM BATH

Seeing Orange Essential Oils as one of the main ingredients in this Sleep Body Wash surprised me. Usually orange is used in products as a scent to wake you up. Surprisingly the combination of Cedarwood (the main scent) and Orange Essential Oils is actually very soothing! The scent of this Body Wash by Bath & Body Works is sweet and – just like the bottle claims – very soft.

The combination of the two scents works very calming for me. You could for sure compare the effect of this Sleep Body Wash to that of a warm night time tea. After using it under the shower I am even feeling the warmth of the water (or maybe it is the product) lingering on my skin longer than it usually does.

The Night Time Tea Body Wash left my skin feeling very clean. The scent of orange and cedarwood subtly lingers on my skin. I do not own a bath so I don’t know I can’t judge the foam capacity of this product, but when using it as a body wash a little product goes a long way. One bottle contains 295 ml. After writing this review I found out that Bath & Body Works has discontinued this product. However, you can still find it on Amazon for $14,99. Other lines from the Sleep collection are still available at Bath & Body Works.

I am very happy with both products and will most likely repurchase the pillow mist when I am in the USA again. I am a very stressful person, so anything that relieves my stress is more than welcome!

With Love,

    Unfortunately this Company uses synthetic and artificial ingredients. They are also not transparent with their ingredients. There are so many other choices out there that are pure and natural – safe for children and animals. Do the planet and yourself a favor – buy organic or wild-crafted plant products instead of chemical and synthetic filled products. I make my own for family & friends – it’s pretty easy – you can do it also. Or you can visit my ETSY store http://www.chrysoils.com

  2. Great post! Hahah with the comparison to Zwitsal! My boyfriend, Spencer, likes the Stress Relief Eucalyptus/Spearmint body lotion in the winter. This past Christmas he received the same scent as a bath wash from his sister. It does smell fresh, and I’d consider buying the pillow mist you write about here (I did not know they had a mist!!).

    Much Love,

    Thank you for the review! I didn’t know such a thing existed. However I just bought the “sleep ” massage oil and now I’m more excited to use it! I carry all my stress in my neck and shoulders so quite often Andrew massages them for me! I’m definitely going to try the pillow mist because I have a hard time sleeping as well.

      You are very welcome! And I know exactly what you’re talking about, maybe I should start asking Chris’ for massages too hehe! The biggest thing for me is that I now associate that scent with sleep so my body goes into sleep-mode more easily I think. And it is also just a relaxing scent :D.

    Wat een mooie foto’s! En een fijne, duidelijke review. Die slaapspray lijkt me heerlijk!

    • TheBeautySuitcase says:

      Bedankt voor het lieve complimentje! De spray is echt heel fijn! Sowieso ben ik groot fan van Bath & Body Works producten!

  5. Ik ben erg nieuwsgierig naar deze producten. Mooie review. Ik heb zelf een mini size sprayflacon van This Works Sleep pillow spray, die ruikt naar lavendel.

    • TheBeautySuitcase says:

      Die wil ik ook wel een keer proberen, ik ben namelijk dol op lavendel!
