This is very nice, and I recommend it for anyone who loves warm edible indulgent aromas at bath time. What I like to do is lather up in the bathtub and then run a little in the stream and make a bubble bath, then luxuriate for an hour in hot water as the fragrant steam fills the room. This makes bath time more than just a routine, but a pleasure.

Effectiveness
I have used this soap on my hair and on my entire body with pleasant results in that I come out refreshed, pampered and clean. It does not tend to dry out my skin even if I use it every day, and it leaves my hair shiny and with a pleasant smell that my husband has noticed. I notice that my hair shines in the sun and is soft and bouncy.

Scent
I like this quite a bit. It smells delicious without being sickening or childish. The raspberry is dark and tart, and yet sweet, and the vanilla warm, so the two notes play off each other to create an image in my mind of a raspberry pie. The vanilla component gives me the illusion of the warm pie crust. It's also a fragrance suitable for every day use, but maybe best for relaxing at home, as a reward for a day of hard work. It does not seem like what I would wear on a date, but something I would luxuriate in alone to pamper myself.

Bath and Body Works really has some great scents. One of these scents is Black Raspberry and Vanilla. It is sweet, strong and sultry. It is one of my favorites at Bath and Body Works. But for a body wash/shower gel, it is a bit strong or even overpowering. This is partially why I am not entirely a fan of Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel. I mean I prefer this scent it in small doses, like as a travel anti-bacterial gel (pocket bacs).

As for the shower gel itself - the scent aside - It does not get very sudsy. It's actually rather quite flat. And I'm not entirely sure that its hypoallergenic, so it's not the first thing I'd suggest for those sensitive skin. All in all, I think it's a decent product, but there are better things out there.

Scent
Black Raspberry and Vanilla is such a great scent. It makes me happy basically every time I use it. (That is, unless I have a headache and then this strong scent is a bit too much to handle.)

Great product

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

The Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel is a great shower gel. It is a little more expensive than regular shower soap or gel that you could buy at a different kind of store, but it's a great deal for being a specialty shower gel, especially when you can get it during any of the numerous sales that Bath and Body Works has.

Effectiveness
The Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel always leaves me feeling really clean after my shower. It lathers really well with a loofah, and I can even use it when I shave my legs instead of having to use shaving gel.

Scent
The Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel is one of my most favorite scents out of the Bath and Body Works line. It has a pleasant blend of odors as described in the title. The scent is a little strong when you are putting it on in the shower, but it quickly fades. It does not fade too much, though, and I love that the scent clings to me for hours after my shower.

I love the smell but I wish I had a little more lather.

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

This is one of half a dozen shower gels from Bath and Body that I absolutely love the scent of. The black raspberry and vanilla smell great together. Usually, I am not a fan of vanilla but with the raspberry mixed in, it actually smells nice. It has a fruity and floral scent to it. The shower gel is purple because it has some dyes in it, but it doesn't irritate my skin at all.

I do notice there isn't much moisture to this body wash. I also notice I didn't get as much lather as I would have liked when using this. After I wash my face, arms, and torso, I usually have to lather up a second time with more shower gel so that I can wash my lower half without running out of suds.

The gel smells clean and fresh and not too overpowering. The scent lingers on the skin in a good way. The raspberry scent with the vanilla smells like a berry cake to me. I really just wish this lathered better so that the product lasted longer.

Effectiveness
I like the scent of this and it felt great going on, but I really needed more lather.

Scent
I am not usually into vanilla scents but this smelled nice. The raspberry and vanilla combo smelled like a berry cake.

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

I love the products from this store because they smell so nice and the smell also lasts long.
I especially like this smell because it is sweet and fruity at the same time. I don't think the soap part of the product is as good as other standard soaps but I always buy their products for the scent. They have good sales online so always check for sales. If you register to receive their catalog, they sometimes send free coupons. With some of the coupons, you don't have to buy anything and still get a travel sized product for free. I have gotten at least one or two of those per year. So make sure to register your email and address for great deals on nice smelling products!

Effectiveness
The gel is effective but not the strongest. I like the scent part of it more than the actually function.

Scent
The scent is super strong and long lasting. I love their products because of the scent and this one is one of my favorites.

Smells so delicious!

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

Out of ALL the bath and body works products I have stocked up in my bathroom, the "Black raspberry vanilla shower gel" is one of my top favorites! I have pretty much the whole line of products in that scent, but I love this shower gel the most. It has a very strong scent that actually lasts on your skin, best part is that it is NOT overpowering to where it gags you. I love the mix of the black raspberry and the light hint of vanilla, it makes it a beautiful balanced shower gel. You only need a little bit on your sponge or loofah to get a nice lather. Your skin will feel so soft after using this shower gel, and it will smell great as well.

Effectiveness
After using this shower gel my skin feels incredibly soft and beautiful. I give this product a high 10, it is great for any skin type.

Scent
The scent is black raspberry and vanilla, you can definitely smell them both. This shower gel has a strong black raspberry scent, but enough vanilla to give it an amazing balance. This has to be one of my favorite scents because it actually lingers on your skin HOURS after your shower. The vanilla is nice and relaxing, sure to please you. I wouldn't recommend this to men though, it does have more of a feminine smell to it.

Delicious!

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

I found these by accident, only because they were having a super sale on these. The prices on sale you can not pass up. Bath soap is so expensive these days, but this is always a great price and on sale even better. The scents are superb and delicious. Soft, sexy, mysterious and yummy all in one. The lather is to die for. Bubbles everywhere. I use this in the shower with my puff and as well in the bath tub for washing and also as a bubble bath. It is also thick enough to use for shaving your legs if you don't want to have to buy another separate product for your legs. Gentle on the skin and non irritating for those of us with sensitive skin. I would say that these are more for women based on the scents (my husband thinks they are to scented), but my young son loves some of them because they are so scented. So they are great for all ages, not just us adults.

Effectiveness
This is a great bath or shower gel that cleans exceptionally well and lathers great.

Scent
All I can say is "DELICIOUS".

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

I love all Bath & Body Works products and have tried all of their products. Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel has became one of my favorite scents. It lathers great and leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed.Even though this is a little expensive, the quality of this is well worth the money. I have been a big fan of Bath & Body Works for many years and plan on using it as long as they continue making it. I highly recommend this product to all women who love skin care products.

Effectiveness
This product is very effective and does exactly what it is supposed to do, it lathers well and leaves your skin clean and vibrant.

Scent
This scent is delicious, it is a great wake me up while showering every morning. It is not a scent that lingers afterward, just a nice, fun scent to use while showering. Even though it is mixed with vanilla it is not at all noticeable. I think anyone that tries this will also love it as much as I do.

Smells amazing and makes a great lather

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

I received Bath and Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel as a gift for my birthday. It smells so good! It has a rich smell-you can really smell the Raspberry and Vanilla scents. It also reminds me a little or licorice-just a hint. I love that this shower gel makes such a great lather out of such a small amount! I just put a tiny drop on my bath poof and the bubbles start forming. It feels rich and creamy on the skin and makes your whole shower smell amazing. After your shower, there is a little hint of this rich and pleasant scent left behind!

Effectiveness
Makes a wonderful lather and feels amazing on your skin.

Scent
This scent is great-it is a little odd though and may not be a favorite for everyone.

Another great scent from Bath & Body Works!

Comments about Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry and Vanilla Shower Gel:

Years ago I was a big fan of the 'Sun Riped Raspberry' scent from Bath & Body Works. Unfortunately it was discontinued and is no longer available. I've tried of raspberry scented products from other stores, and was never able to find one that was comparable. Bath & Body Works has since come out with 'Black Raspberry and Vanilla', which is different, but just as nice, as their original.

Effectiveness
My only complaint about this product is that the scent just doesn't last long enough. I remember the original Sun Riped Raspberry scent lasting virtually all day long, but this fragrance seems to last only about an hour. Still, it smells so nice, I have to give it a good review.

Scent
The name of the scent says it all - A burst of raspberry with a hint of vanilla cream. It smells great, and the body wash feels wonderful on the skin. Like other Bath & Body Works products, the scent is available in their lotions, body washes, fragrance mists, anti-bacterial soaps, and so on.
