Bath and Body or Body Shop?


I choose Body Shop. Even though Bath and Body have a huge selection of scents and products, I find them to all smell the same and the quality is not as good as Body Shop.

Neither.

Their scents are not complex and captivating to me, and have very little staying power unless they are oils. I find the oils too "single note" for me.

I prefer Bath and Body (I think Aveeno is the best).

Body Shop, I love their olive body products and the fact they source their natural ingredients from fare trade countries.

B&BW scents don't smell natural to me.

I agree. Both stores have products that smell too 'teenager' to me.

I like some of the scents at Bath & Body Works, but I'm trying to buy cruelty free beauty products when possible so my days of shopping there are over. There's no Body Shop anywhere near me.

The Body Shop, for sure.

B&BW has me sneezing with tears and snot running down my face within minutes.

I never seem to find anything in Body Shop. B&BW is a great place for gifts, and has frequent sales.
