Bath and Body Works were having a sale and not gonna lie, my previous haul (this) was kinda’ disappointing, so on July 8 2020 I placed another online order with them.
A lot of stuff was missing (out of stock, because of the sale) but they refunded me (my money was back in my account) in a little under two weeks.
Everything arrived individually wrapped in bubble wrap and there was no breakage nor leakage.
After months of isolation, on June 27, 2020 I finally caved and placed a small order with the local online store of Bath and Body Works.
– Buy 2 Get 1 Free on Hand Soaps
– Buy 2 Get 1 Free on Travel Sizes
– Buy 1 Get 1 Free on Wallflowers and Wallflower Plugs
I wasn’t all that excited about anything in particular. I just needed to place an online order. Aside from Taw9eel.com I hadn’t gone shopping neither irl nor online in quite some time and I was going crazy because of it.
I was the teensy bit curious about the latest Summer Collection and figured I’d give the minis a try. If I liked anything, I could always go back and purchase the full size.
Everything arrived safely swathed in bubble wrap. It took forever to get here though (definitely because of the lockdown, I suppose everyone was ordering online).
These Wallflower Fragrance Refills were from my U.S. B&BW Spring Haul (here).
Typically, Wallflower Fragrance Refills retail for $6.50 but these babies had been reduced to $2.50 (Hot Cocoa & Cream) each and $1.62 (Chocolate Lava Cake) each.
Both of these were scents I’d purchased and fallen in love with earlier so as soon as I saw those slashed prices, I had to pounce!
1st B&BW U.S. Online Order (November 30) – Collective Haul (here)
2nd B&BW U.S. Online Order (December 5) – Shower Gels + Jar Candles (here)
3rd B&BW U.S. Online Order (December 6) – Hand Soaps + Wallflowers (here)
4th B&BW U.S. Online Order (December 7) – Candle Day Haul (here)
5th B&BW U.S. Online Order (January 1) – Collective Haul (here)
I’d already placed several online orders with the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store all throughout Winter and was pretty much fully stocked up on… well, everything.
However, as soon as I noticed the Spring Collection start popping up on the U.S. Online Store (in January, mind you), I couldn’t resist placing yet another online order!
I’d like to think that I tapped into my psychic powers and stocked up on Hand Soaps and Shower Gels in anticipation of the upcoming pandemic and the resulting lock-down, but in reality, a bunch of stuff was on clearance (too good of a deal to pass up).
On January 16 I placed my 6th and final U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Order.
I got some Shower Gels and Body Lotions and Fragrance Mists and Wallflower Fragrances and Candles and Hand Soaps.
Some stuff was new (spring collection) while others were repurchases of products that I’d tried and fallen in love with earlier.
Everything arrived in an unnecessarily large box and wasn’t all that well packaged either. I’ll go over everything in the upcoming posts (split into different categories).
Like I said in my 1st Bath & Body Works Candle Haul from waaaay back in 2012 (here), I’m a hardcore scented-candle aficionado!
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!
Bath & Body Works had this Buy 3 Get 3 Free deal going on. So, I decided to pick up a few more things and take advantage of that deal.
Supposedly, you could mix and match, but when I added a few Wallflower Fragrance Refills, it wouldn’t let me combine them with Hand Soaps and kept giving me an error message.
When I tried to add 3-wick Candles to the mix, it showed me that I was going to have to pay full price for all the 3-wick Candles and get the much cheaper Wallflower Fragrance Refills for free.
Basically, my best option was to place 2 separate orders; one for Wallflower Fragrance Refills and another for 3-wick Candles.
Man, I wish they’d fix their website already, to where it would be slightly more intuitive.
Wallflower Fragrance Refills retail for KD 2/250 each
Aside from a few experimental ones, I mostly went with sweeter scents.
I picked up x12 Wallflower Fragrance Refills and payed for x6 while the other x6 ended up being free (due to the Buy 3 Get 3 Free promo). The total for this order was KD 11/250 (with free shipping). I placed my order on December 5 and everything arrived safely the next day, except…
As if the previous promos (KD 1/750 Showers Gels and KD 2/500 Body Lotions) weren’t enough, seemingly out of the blue, Bath & Body Works had a Flash Sale… only days before “Black Friday“!
– 3-wick Candles were reduced from KD 8 to KD 3 each
– Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 for KD 2/750
– Mini Perfume Sprays (travel size eau de parfums) were reduced from KD 4/500 to KD 1/750
– Hand Soaps were reduced from KD 3/750 to KD 1/750
– Fragrance Mists were reduced from KD 7 toKD 2/750
– Travel Size Fragrance Mists were reduced from KD 3/250 to KD 1/750
– Travel Size Body Lotions were reduced from KD 2/750 to KD 1/750
– Room Sprays were reduced from KD 2/750 to KD 1/750
– Wallflower Refills were reduced from KD 2/250 to KD 1
– Scentportable Holders (car fragrance) were reduced to KD 1
The total for this online order was KD 50/500 (free shipping)
Once again, I was feeling pretty smug about placing my order when I did, because the 40% Off promo they had for “Black Friday” (or “Cyber Week” as they call it on the site), was pretty disappointing and not nearly as good as the one they had during the Flash Sale.
I even included the percentage saved next to each item (nicked from their site, I didn’t math this time lol) just to show you guys the difference. It adds up, you guys.
Needless to say, I did not purchase anything online or in-store from our local Bath&Body Works during “Black Friday” (hard pass).
I placed my order on November 21 and everything (including the wasteful pages and pages of the receipt/invoice) arrived safely and well-packaged the next day.
Lastly but certainly not least were the Candles and Wallflower Bulbs I picked up during The Big Sale. Some were purchased in-store and the ones I couldn’t find in-store were purchased online.
I picked up x14 large 3-wick Candles and x2 Jar Candles and x3 Wallflower Bulbs. I haven’t started burning any of them just yet because ironically, for the past two weeks I’ve been sick with the flu (hence lack of new posts lol)
3-Wick Candles were reduced from KD 8 each to KD 4 each
Single Wick Jar Candles were reduced from KD 6 – KD 5 each to KD 2/500 each
Wallflower Refill Bulbs were reduced from KD 2/250 each to KD 1 each
I kinda’ went crazy during the sale…
