Bath & Body Works Black Cherry Merlot Nourishing Hand Cream

Go ahead and pop Bath & Body Works Black Cherry Merlot Nourishing Hand Cream on your “must buy” list because this is one hand cream you won’t want to do without. Now, you already know how much I love me some Bath & Body Works Black Cherry Merlot Hand Soap so now that they have a hand cream my life is almost complete. Considering they recently introduced Mahogany Teakwood Fragrance Mist I have hopes and dreams they’ll also do Black Cherry Merlot Bath and Body Collection.

Until that time I’ll comfort myself with the Bath & Body Works Black Cherry Merlot Nourishing Hand Cream.

Buy it in bulk, people!

According to Bath & Body Works the Black Cherry Merlot fragrance is a blend of dark cherry, black raspberry and merlot. Personally, it brings back my very first day of school. It smells like some sort of fruit juice! You know the kind they’d give you with two cookies during “snack time”! Yup, this one brings back kindergarten for me! It’s sweet, it’s cherry, and it’s simply gorgeous! Plus the scent is very strong so well after washing your hand it lingers on.

But now, better yet, we have a hand cream so the scent will last even further. This is a thick shea butter rich hand cream that absorbs easily and leaves hands and nails soft and smooth without feeling greasy! And the smell, my god that addictive sweet juicy cherry scent. It’s divine! Truly one of Bath & Body Works masterpieces! Bath & Body Works is a tricky little brand because they can totally bore you one minute with an endless supply of fruity floral fragrances that are incredibly repetitive. And suddenly they launch a gem like Black Cherry Merlot and you’re left wondering to yourself why they aren’t releasing this fragrance in a mist, body cream, freaking perfume even!

Love this!

Very happy to see the scent growing into new products and I hope that it continues to grow because I’ll continue to buy!

Bath & Body Works Black Cherry Merlot Nourishing Hand Cream is available for $5 in a 2 oz size or grab the Happy Hands Gift Set that features full size hand cream and hand soap for $12.50 8 oz.

Grab it now in stores or at bathandbodyworks.com.

P.S. I watched the first episode of Poldark last night and for an opening episode it was NOT slow in the least. I expected things to build gradually considering how long this series is but they really started out with a bang and call me a fangirl if you will but Aidan Turner was electrifying. As a long time watcher of Masterpiece this might just turn into one of my favorites since Jane Eyre (with Timothy Dalton) and Pride and Prejudice. Such a great production so far!

Elizabeth you screwed up. Patience is a virtue, dear!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    OMG I absolutely love the Timothy Dalton version of Jane Eyre! No one ever mentions the 1983 miniseries, they always talk about the newer versions, but his portrayal of Mr. Rochester is my favorite by far. The ’83 Jane Eyre, 1995 P&P and North & South (2004 version with Richard Armitage) are my most watched and favorite period dramas.

    I’ll have to check Poldark out.

      Agreed! I loved it and watched it so so many times 😀 N&S is lovely but that’s probably me talking about Richard Armitage lol! 😀 Poldark is fabulous do watch it. Also watch the original Pride and Prejudice (1980) starring David Rintoul, it’s quite great!

    I *love* the original Poldark, and I really liked this new version too! I can’t wait for season 2. 😀
