Ahh, summertime! It's great for relaxing, swimming and soaking up the sun. You will always want to look good and smell great. We know that can be more of a challenge in the summer, but that's not an issue with Bath & Body Works summer collections. Beat the heat and enjoy.

What I thought: I tried a few samples of the summer collections and enjoyed them all. I tried the White Mango Chill shower gel, White Mango Chill mist,  Coconut Water Chill body lotion, Pure Paradise shower gel and Pure Paradise body lotion. They all have a great summery scent that I enjoy. I'm not a big fan of mango, so I wasn't sure what I would think of this scent. I really like it. It has a nice, light, sweet scent that I rather enjoy. It's something that I will definitely use. 

My favorite, though, by far was the Coconut Water Chill lotion. I love coconut and this was a perfectly light coconut scent. I can put the lotion on without feeling like I used too much sunscreen (you know that smell, right?). It was just enough to give the subtle coconut scent that reminds you of summer. I think I have a new favorite.

Where to buy: You can find these summer scents at Bath & Body Works stores and their online shop too.
