Did you know that there is not one Bath and Body Works or The Body Shop in the Bronx? (To be fair, according to The Body Shop’s website, they claim they have a branch in the Sephora in the Bay Plaza JC Penney). Regardless, neither of them carry solely natural and organic products. Stop schlepping downtown or to Westchester for your bath and body needs because Bella Bath and Body Boutique in Pelham Bay has what you need.
The bright and cozy shop carries a variety of soaps, candles, sugar scrubs, and body washes. They even have the curly hair line Beautiful Curls by Alaffia. Other brands lining the shelves include Pangea, Cake, and Simplicity.
The boutique’s owner was helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the products. Bella Bath & Body is a wonderful and much needed addition to the borough. It’s the perfect go-to spot to gather up some great, affordable gifts for the holidays (there are even prewrapped sets for last minute presents). They also sell gift cards in case you’re not sure what to get someone.
Go out and support your local Bronx businesses this holiday season!
