Bath and Body Works Haulage (December)

I was severely disappointed by the fact that they were selling the Holiday 2017 Holiday Collection instead of the Holiday 2018 Collection at Bath & Body Works on December 2018 (pics here). However, I didn’t realize they were doing that, up until I started looking up the fragrance notes for this post, which by then, was obviously too late. This right here, is the reason I stopped buying from Bath & Body Works for so long.

They had some promo or other going on at the time (Buy 3 Get 4 Free), so I grabbed a few things (which turned out to be total fails). I got x2 Dry Shampoo and x2 Body Stuff (Shower Gel + Body Scrub) and x2 Bathroom Stuff (Shower Steamer and Hand Soap) and x2 Scented Candles and x3 Room Sprays. As the icing on the cake, not all the items were included in the promo -_-

Spotted at Bath and Body Works (December)

Pretty, right? I thought so too! I even bought a few things.

Back home, when I googled the notes for an upcoming post, I realized that instead of the Holiday 2018 Collection, they were selling the Holiday 2017 Collection and passing it off as the newer collection!

Everything that people were buying was already a year old! No wonder those Body Creams usually smell horrible in under a month! They were already old by the time we bought them! We’d been buying old products at retail price. I mean, is this even legal?

The joys of living in Kuwait…

Bath and Body Works (November)

I was at Bath & Body Works (here). I did some damage (KD 33 worth, to be exact). You know the drill.

Spotted at Bath and Body Works (November)

There was a very cute Rose Collection display (as shown) and an equally cute Pumpkin Collection (shown below) and a ton of the newer Candle Collections (shown below). Best of all, there was either a Buy One Get One Free promo or a Buy 2 Get 2 Free promo on almost everything. Of course, my beloved Sea-Tox Collection and Water Collection were excluded from the promos, but you can’t win ’em all, I guess.

Another promo that I don’t recall them ever having before, was Buy 2 Get 3 Free on all the Hand Soaps! Naturally, I had to partake. Unfortunately, I had one of the sales assistant on my tail (kept trying to shake her off) and I totally would’ve walked out, except I was already invested (I was absolutely besotted with the Rose Fine Fragrance Mist and Paris Cafe Candle and needed them in my life). Honestly, at one point, I couldn’t help but start giggling to myself. I was a grown woman and yet here I was skittering from corner to corner, trying to avoid the sales assistant (who was another grown woman). The whole situation was a bit absurd.

Bath and Body Works Haulage (October)

During my visit to Bath and Body Works (here), I picked up a handful of really fun stuff (x2 Zodiac Candles and x2 deliciously-scented shower stuff and x2 pocketbacs with funny-punny names) all of which had been significantly reduced (much more reasonable price)!

Bath & Body Works (October)

Raise your hand if you like Bath & Body Works! I do! I do! I do~oo!

Whenever I find myself at the Avenues Mall, I always make it a point, to hit up Bath & Body Works (facing Carrefour Supermarket). From the moment they opened up their first store in the country (here), I’ve been obsessed with Bath & Body Works (they actually retweeted my earliest hauls lol)! I believe I was around 24-25 years old back then and even now as a 33 year old, I’m still just as obsessed with the store! From the sublime beach-y scents (variations of coconut and mango and other exotic fruits that instantly transport you to a tropical island) during Summer, to the divine holiday scents (including the cult-fave Vanilla Bean Noel which was vanilla… on steroids) during Winter! From the delightfully delectable gourmand scents (encompassing macarons and gelato and lemon-y desserts and everything in-between) during Spring, to the intoxicating heady spicy scents (cinnamon and pumpkin everything) during Fall/Autumn! To me, nothing highlights the changing of seasons, quite like the seasonally appropriate Bath & Body Works Collections!

I got this as a birthday gift for my cousin’s wife, also from the Soug Sharq branch of Bath & Body Works (so many birthdays at once). I don’t know her all too well (they just got married recently), but from what little I do know, she seems to enjoy more delicate scents. As such, I’m hoping she’ll enjoy this Gift Set in the scent Magic In the Air.
