I kinda’ went crazy during the sale…
ColourPop were having a 30% off Sale leading up to Labor Day so I placed an order with them, picking up a few things.
It only took about ten years (not even joking), but the local Bath&Body Works website is finally up and running!
Rather than running around from branch to branch; triple-checking to see if the latest collection has been released in Kuwait yet, or hunting down a particularly hard-to-find Candle, or whatever, I can just order online now and have the stuff delivered straight to my home!
Yes, they don’t have coupons and stuff like they do in the U.S. and yes, the collections we get are still… limited (it’s the same stock, after all), but give them another ten years or so and they’ll get there, eventually (maybe) lol
ELF were having a 50% off Sale, but only on select items (mostly Tools and Brushes and some of their less expensive products).
As usual, none of the newer items were included. So, I used up my Beauty Reward Points (every $1 spent at ELF = 1 Beauty Point) to activate the “Choose Your Own Sale Day” (15% – 25% off) option. That way, I could purchase the other items I wanted (that had not been included in the 50% off Sale) at a discounted price too! I also used up my Beauty Reward Points to redeem several items (got them for free).
I listed both the original price and the reduced price, next to each item and in parenthesis listed whether the item was part of the 50% off Sale or if I had used “Beauty Points” (ELF’s Loyalty Program). Instead of being $175 the total was $100.75 (well, $109.69 with tax) which was KD 30 (about KD 33 with tax).
Shortly after I placed this order, ELF released a whole slew of new products. So, it’s safe to assume that every time they had a 50% Sale, they were most probably going to be releasing new stuff, soon after.
As I mentioned earlier (dis) I got a text that the “Big Sale” was on. It’d started ages ago, but I only got the text when it was halfway over (about a week or so left, from today).
As per usual, the newer (cooler) stuff was not included in the sale, and the stuff that was on sale was mostly unpleasant scents (eucalyptus candles, floral-y fragrance mists, rancid smelling shower gels and foaming hand soaps, etc…). Everything looked and felt, all gross and sticky (from being played around with by people). Nothing interested me, so I decided to bounce.
Honestly, I thought Bath&Body Works were totally done with those Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps (had phased them out and stopped making them, in favor of focusing solely on Foaming Hand Soaps… which saddened me), but on my way out, I clocked a few! I was pretty excited because those Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps were my favorites!
They had them in the scents Honolulu Sun and Sun-Washed Citrus and Rainforest Gardenia (all in the correlating watercolor-y packaging) and oddly enough, Endless Weekend (same packaging as the one I got 6 months ago). That said, the scents didn’t blow my mind. I searched high and low for any other scents, but apparently they had rows and rows of only those 4.
Since the scent of Endless Weekend was meh (dis) and I was quite wary of Rainforest Gardenia (because… floral), I made do with Sun-Washed Citrus and Honolulu Sun.
