These are the Body Lotions I purchased in my B&BW New Year Haul (here).
4 were Shower Gels that I’d purchased earlier and enjoyed enough to repurchase as Body Lotions, while 2 were complete blind-buys, making a total of 6 Body Lotions (as shown). Truthfully, I would’ve loved to have gotten my hands on Little Black Party Dress but it was sold out.
Normally, I wouldn’t buy this many Body Lotions all in one go… except these babies had been reduced to around $3 a pop (with the exception of Wild Strawberry which cost $6.25). They were basically 1 Kuwaiti Dinar each! It was too good of a deal to pass up!
With that being said, I’m not crazy enough to have them all open at once. I’m only going to be using one at a time and completely finishing it up, before moving on to the next one.
Also, all of them arrived sealed, which is what I’ve come to expect from the U.S. B&BW (unlike our local B&BW lol).
Honestly I wasn’t planning on ordering more Bath & Body Works stuff online anymore, but the U.S. B&BW had some crazy good deals going on and I’m only human after all.
Unfortunately, some of the things I ordered were missing (such as the Exfoliating Lip Scrub in the scent/flavor Mint Drop which had been reduced to $4.25), but that’s my fault for waiting until literally the last day of the year to place my order lol
Started this post on January 4 and only got around to posting it on April 4 lol
I’ve only ever heard of Candle Day, but never actually experienced it for myself, or even knew what day it fell on. Heck, I don’t think we’ve ever had Candle Day in Kuwait.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I logged on to the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store and accidentally stumbled on Candle Day! Basically, if you don’t know what Candle Day is, it’s when 3-Wick Candles go on sale!
I added a ton of 3-Wick Candles to my online cart and immediately placed my order, but my credit cart was all “nah lol you’re outta $$”.
Of all the times to exceed the limit on my darn online credit card, I had to run out of $$ on Candle Day?!?!
Thankfully, I still had some $$ left. There was a lot of “mathing” involved, but I figured out I had just enough for x10 3-Wick Candles, with a little something extra for taxes (we don’t have taxes in Kuwait so I’ve got now clue how to calculate that stuff lol)
Deal at the time of this order:
3-Wick Candles were reduced from $24.50 each down to only $9.50 each
$9.50 Today Only! – with code CANDLECRAZE
As I said, the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store had some pretty good deals all throughout December! They were releasing new products and new deals pretty much on the daily!
The deals at the time of this order:
– Hand Soaps were reduced from $6.50 to $3
– Wallflower Fragrances Duos (2pc) were 3 for $27 (normally $12.50 each)
– Wallflower Fragrances (singles) were 5 for $23 (normally $7.50 each)
– Use code SANTA for 20% Off Entire Order
I decided to pick up a few Wallflower Fragrances and Hand Soaps.
Wallflower Fragrances make my home smell ah-mazing and they were on sale! Win, win.
Hand Soaps tend to smell great too and they were on sale as well ergo good time to stock up!

Shower Gels normally retail for $12.50 (KD 3/800) each
They had a Buy 3, Get 3 Free promo on Body Care. Also, 20% Off the entire order. So, I decided to get the rest of the Shower Gels that I had my heart set on (from the ones that were still in stock), especially since all the Shower Gels in my 1st U.S. B&BW Online Order (here) turned out to be great!
I feel like I got a nice mix of scents this time too, ranging from warm to fresh to fruity to gourmand and even floral (I was feeling adventurous)!
Again, at the time of my second order, my first order (haulage here) hadn’t even shipped.
Settle in with a nice mug of whatever you drink and a cozy shawl or whatever because this post is going to be… a novel lol
From my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Haul (here)
Jar Candles were reduced from $14.50 (KD 4/400) to $8 (KD 2/400) each
According to the reviews, Jar Candles packed quite a punch and could scent up a spacious room within minutes! I was a bit skeptical, but decided to see for myself, especially since these babies were on sale.
You guys, the reviews were not wrong! For whatever reason, these little things were far superior to their much larger counterparts! I mean, I haven’t actually burned any of them yet, but even on cold throw, some of these were straight up beast-mode!
I love things that smell great! I love ’em! I just do!
Perfumes and Body Mists and Hair Mists and Dry Shampoo and other Hair Products and Room Scents and Car Fragrances and Candles and Shower Gels and Deodorants and Body Lotions and Hand Soaps and Bar Soaps and Antibacterial Hand Sanitizers and Skincare and Lipgloss and heck, even Fabric Softener! If it’s scented, I’m so down!
I’ve always enjoyed scented stuff (scratch’n’sniff stickers anyone?), but now, it’s grown into a full-blown obsession…
So, even though I’d just placed my first US Bath & Body Works Online Order only days before, on November 30 (haulage here), I went ahead and placed my second US Bath & Body Works Online Order on December 5.
Keep in mind that it takes anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks for my online orders to ship from the country of origin (U.S.) to my country (Kuwait), queued up to get cleared by customs and then finally, delivered to my doorstep. So at the time of my second order, my first order hadn’t even been shipped.
I got mostly Shower Gels (x12) and Jar Candles (x17) and some travel size stuff (x3).
My justification was that I wouldn’t be able to order this stuff online anymore, once the weather got warmer. I mean I could, but they’d probably arrived damaged from the heat. Also, all through December, there were new deals on the daily! Not to mention 20% Off the entire order and another 20% Off Coupon Code that arrived with my order!
