Packaging junkies — pretty bottle alert! I’m loving this elegant glass bottle of Sweet Fig & Argan Body Lotion ($15) from the new True Blue Morocco collection by Bath and Body Works.
The heavy glass comes embossed with a dainty diamond pattern at the bottom, and the colorful but minimalist label looks nothing like typical Bath and Body Works hearts/flowers/rainbows/puppies packaging fare. It totes looks like something I’d find in Neiman’s or Barney’s instead.
I’m thinking it has hostess or housewarming gift written all over it.
The lotion itself works great. My dry skin needs real deal moisturization, and Sweet Fig Lotion delivers the goods. Bath and Body Works added hydrating ingredients like shea butter, argan oil (an oil rich in Vitamin E) and green tea (for the antioxidants) into the mix. The resulting lotion moisturizes like a rich body butter.
A warm, fall scent
To me, Sweet Fig Lotion smells like a mix of white musk, cinnamon and clove. It’s warm and comforting, like a cashmere cable-knit sweater or a cup of hot apple cider — more like a fall scent than a typical summer fragrance.
And I dig it a lot.
Lately at night I’ve been taking True Blue Morocco Rose Petal and Orange Flower Shower Cream ($15) with me into the shower and moisturizing with Sweet Fig Lotion after I’m done, ahh…

You might like Sweet Fig Lotion if…
- you have really dry skin that needs a lot of hydration,
- you like musky, spicy “fall” fragrances, or
- you have a thang for elegant packaging.
I’ve liked everything I’ve tried from the True Blue Morocco collection so far. Sweet Fig’s one of six body products in the line, and like the others it draws inspiration from some of the scents and symbols of the North African country of Morocco.
If you’ve been wanting to give these products a try, Bath and Body Works has a True Blue Morocco sale going on now — buy any two products from the line for $20, a savings of about 30% off the regular price.
One too many vampires!
LOL, I can’t tell you how many times I almost typed “True Blood” in place of “True Blue” in this post.
I’m almost finished watching Season 1 on DVD — just four more episodes left! We don’t have HBO, so I won’t be able to see the second season until it comes out on DVD. Shoot! I may have to wait, what, like a year? Sigh…
How’s your Tuesday coming along? Mine’s been pretty good, except that I’m having a little trouble concentrating.
Oh, well. It happens.
