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!

Spotted at The Body Shop (Summer)

I was at the Avenues when I noticed they had a Sale going on over at The Body Shop. It was around closing time, but I still managed to take some photos and grab a few things. I tried my best to put names and prices to everything. If there are any mistakes, I apologize (let me know in the comments and I’ll fix it). The NEW ITEMS (not included in the Sale) are all the way at the bottom of this post. To my understanding, the Sale usually lasts for an entire month which according to my calculations is August 20. So if anything catches your fancy, you’ve still got a few days to go pick it up. Hope you enjoy this post!

Sultan Center Personal Care Haul

I was only at Sultan Center (Salmiya Branch) to pick up yet another Cream Silk (my ride or die hair conditioner) but ended up getting everything else you see in the photo, as well.

Bath and Body Works Post-Sale Haul

They were stocking the shelves at Bath & Body Works (Marina Mall) with two new(er) collections so I decided to pop in for a quick look and ended up with two bags worth… as per usual. I was actually on the lookout for the Tutti Dolce Collection but apparently that’s too much to ask for. The two new(er) collections that we did have were released world-wide sometime in 2016, while we were only just getting them (in Kuwait) in the middle of February 2017. As always, they had a “Buy Two Get One Free” deal. Sadly, they don’t let you combine products from other collections, which I think is silly because not everyone is crazy as I am and willing to experiment with full-sized, all-new products, at a time. Even I would like to combine my tried and true favorites with some of the newer stuff and qualify for that deal, rather than having to purchase three newer products and three older products from their signature collection. Granted, I’m actually purchasing four products and getting the two for free but still, that’s a total of six too many, as opposed to a more reasonable total of three products. I could just purchase one product be done with it but truth be told, Bath & Body Works products are over-priced (which is painfully obvious during their Big Sale) so even though I’m technically spending more money, if I get a deal on them, it tricks my brain into thinking I’m saving more money in the long run… Does that make sense?
