Snow White Bath Oil Limited Edition: Yule 2010
Posted 07 December 2010 - 05:00 AM
I have been eagerly stalking Ms White's arrival, as I was very excited to see this available this Yule season. And of course, I am not disappointed.
Snow White Bath Oil has the same rich, luxurious texture as Snake Oil Bath Oil. Such an innocent scent, pure and not yet corrupted by the realities of life.
My favorite way to use bath oils is as an after-shower moisturizer, and Snow White leaves my skin soft; no need for additional skin lotion or cream. And ten hours later, I can still smell it on my skin, gently wafting.
It's very cold in Florida today; the high was 54 and it's going to freeze tonight, making it feel like the holiday season. Snow White Bath oil is the perfect accompaniment, giving a slight chill to my personal atmosphere.
Very thankful for its release, and can't wait to experiment with layering. Thanks for a wonderful Yule gift! And yes, I do plan on stocking up, as Snow White is perfect for any season.

As my tub was filling up this morning, I put in a tiny squirt of Snow White and it scented not only my bathroom, but my whole apartment! The scent lingered throughout the bath and even after I toweled off, I could still smell a hint of Snow White on my skin.

I've been eagerly waiting for Snow White Bath Oil to land since I've retried my Snow White 09 perfume. I didn't love Snow White 09 until this year though I tried it intermittently throughout the year. It's aged beautifully.
But SWBO... :thud: :love!: Instant love. Wonderfully sweet (but in a non foody way), slightly creamy vanilla with hints of white florals and minimal traces of coconut. It also has wonderful throw. I'm wafting in a cloud of sweet scent after using the bath oil as a moisturizer. Like with SOBO, BPTP has made a wonderful Snow White product that could be arguably better than the perfume oil. A definite must try, even if you only just like the perfume oil.

As a bath oil, Snow White is wonderful; it scents the water and makes it feel soft. The oil doesn't sit on the surface in some disgusting blob but intersperses throughout and leaves your skin feeling nourished and pampered. When used as an after shower moisturizer, the oil almost immediately sinks in. I have wicked dry skin during the winter and this stuff makes it feel like silk. The scent also lingers for a long time -- eleven+ hours -- but it's not so strong as to overpower you. I don't have much experience with BPTP bath oils but if this is the typical formula, I may need to seriously invest in their bath products. It's that good.

The distinctive Snow White scent is obvious when I pop the cap. The oil is a bit thinner in texture than the Polar Bear Plunge. The oil sinks into my skin rather quickly and leaves it feeling very soft. :) The scent on my skin is more of the coconut and vanilla aspects of Snow White, and less of the florals and the ozone. Nevertheless, I am pleased to have SW as a bath oil. :)
ETA: The scent, though faint, lasts for hours on my skin. Where I dabbed some of the perfume oil, it's of course stronger, and lasting longer. :wub2:

I'm really picky about oils and moisturizers. If I use the bptp bath oils in the bath, I can't get my hair or face wet, or else my face breaks out and my hair turns into a greasy mess. And I find them a bit too heavy and overpowering to use as an after shower moisturizer directly on my skin, as many people here do. I really love pouring these on to my legs before I get out of a shower though (or as a body soak in the tub with my hair up), and rinsing them off a bit before getting out. That leaves me moisturized and with a nice sheen on my legs. The scents always linger nicely as well.
That said, this bath oil is awesome. I don't think that my partial bottle will last long, and I should probably stock up before this is no longer available...

The oil isn't scented very strongly :/ which was a bit of a disappointment. Compared to any of the others I can smell well putting half the amount in, and not need perfume after.
BUT... what I am smelling is GOOD (and made me seek out some snow white perfume finally) and has my nose glued to my arm
Also 2 nights in a row with bath oils (did SOBO + lavender the night before) my uggg winter skin is finally back soft and touchable. I love love love the new bath oil formula. Its a miracle worker.

Like many others I used this more as an aftershower lotion. It is very moisturizing and absorbs quickly and doesn't feel greasy, but leaves a slight sheen on my legs which I like. :D But the best part is the scent! Just like the perfume oil...but better? It just seems to have the perfect throw and I love how I feel truly embraced by the scent, every inch of me. I was lucky enough to find a full bottle, but I am sure I will be out by the time Christmas rolls around... I really hope the lab brings this back!!! :wub2:

As a perfume, I didn't care for you. I find you much more appealing as a bath product. Still, there are other bath oils that appeal much more to me, so I'm gonna send you off to someone that DOES love you.

Such a disappointment. Hopefully I can find someone who will enjoy this more than me. Danged stupid skin chemistry. :(

It works beautifully as a bath oil, especially if the water is hot enough -- that seems to release the scent a lot better -- and regardless of anything I put on my skin during or after, it always feels a lot softer just having the oil in the water. I don't need to use so much of it that it makes my bath a slippery mess once it's drained, which is nice, too. It's a light scent, but the oil itself is well-perfumed.
It works beautifully as a body moisturizer as well, sinking in the skin quickly and not feeling greasy yet not disappearing. And the scent lasts and lasts and lasts if you 'wear' the bath oil. Not just all day, but into the next. I'd be hesitant to put it all over my body for that reason because I think I'd stink up a room with Snow White if I did that and not everyone would appreciate that as much as me, but I use it on my lower legs and elbows and it's nice to get a fresh whiff every time I shimmy out of my pants or pull up my sleeves. HOWEVER...I almost hesitate to write this because it sounds so horrible, but when I first put the oil directly on my skin, it smells AWFUL. Like diapers and scotch tape. Something about how the perfume was reformulated for the bath oil does it no favors concentrated and on its own, but thankfully it mingles with my skin chemistry basically within seconds and smells like the gently sweet Snow White I know and love. If Snow White doesn't play nice on your skin, I'd exercise caution before smearing it all over in case the funky notes linger instead. That weird diaper smell is something I've never gotten from any other Snow White bottle or product, so thank goodness it's gone so fast.
