Bath and Body Works Flash Sale Hand Soap

Crisp Morning Air Deep Cleansing Hand Soap (Fall 2019)
Marshmallow Flurries Creamy Luxe Hand Soap (Holiday 2018)
Vanilla Bean Noel Creamy Luxe Hand Soap (Holiday 2018)
Vanilla Bean Noel Gentle Foaming Hand Soap (Holiday 2018)
Moonlight Orchid Gentle Foaming Hand Soap (Fall 2019)
Aromatherapy Sleep (Lavender + Vanilla) Gentle Foaming Hand Soap (2017 release)

These are the Hand Soaps I ended up purchasing during the Flash Sale (here). I got x1 of my beloved Deep Cleansing ones and x2 of those oh-so-pretty iridescent Creamy Luxe ones and x3 Gentle Foaming ones.

All of them were purchased online and therefore unsniffed. However, Vanilla Bean Noel is a constant repurchase (I stock up every year, more or less), so I already knew what I was getting with that scent.

Half the scents I picked up this time, included a lavender note, because I was influenced by Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum (hauled here) and was hoping I’d stumble on something that smelled similar. I dunno’… I just wanted to branch out a little from my usual scents.

Bath and Body Works Flash Sale

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“!

Online Promo:
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.

Bath and Body Works Body Lotion Haul

They switched out the previous online promo on full size Showers Gels (dis) for a newer promo on full size Body Lotions. Plus, the 5 for KD 3 on PocketBacs was still ongoing.

I really didn’t want to risk any of them going out of stock and having to wait until next Winter to get my hands on Vanilla Bean Noel and Hot Cocoa & Cream and possibly never seeing Bali Black Coconut Sands or Bahamas Pink Passionfruit & Banana Flower again (who knew if they were going to re-release them again, next Summer).

So, 3 days after my previous online order (here), I placed another online order with Bath&Body Works. It was too good of a deal to pass up!

Online Promo:
Body Lotions were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 2/500 each
PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3

The total for this online order was KD 13

I placed my order on November 19 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)

As you can see, everything arrived well packaged (including the pages and pages of receipt/invoice).

Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Body Lotions were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.

Once again, I was glad I didn’t wait until “Black Friday” and got the Body Lotions for 50% Off instead of 40% Off.

Bath and Body Works Shower Gel Haul

The new Fall Traditions 2019 Collection popped up online and as time went on, they added a “sneak peak” of the Holiday 2018 Collection (which was being marketed as “new” even though it was last year’s collection).

I’ve spoken about the local Bath&Body Works tricking customers into believing they were purchasing the latest Holiday Collection except it was always already 12 months old, several times now.

That said, beggars can’t be choosers and when they had an online deal on Shower Gels, it was just too good to pass up. So, I quickly placed my order and picked up some of the stuff I’d been lusting after (sadly, Hot Cocoa & Cream Shower Gel was excluded from the promo and was going for full price… sneaky, sneaky).

Online Promo:
Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 1/750 each
PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3

The total for this online order was KD 10

I placed my order on November 16 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)

Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.

So… I’m pretty much patting myself on the back for not waiting and taking advantage of the previous deal and purchasing these Shower Gels for KD 1/750 a pop (she said ever so smugly)!

Bath and Body Works Fall Traditions Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Haul

I was at Marina Mall, to check out a certain fragrance at Jo Malone (which ended up being a disappointment) among other things, when I decided to hit up Bath & Body Works just to browse around.

As luck would have it, I spotted several Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps (not one, not two, not three, but four different scents, granted one was Sweater Weather, ugh)! All of them were from the Fall Traditions 2019 Collection (as evident by the delightfully autumnal names and ugly cartoon-y packaging).

Techie Tuesday: Double Dare OMG! Princess Rabbit Pink Mini Beauty Fan


Double Dare OMG! Princess Rabbit Pink Mini Beauty Fan

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

I’ve spotted the OMG! range from the brand Double Dare already at quite a few places around Kuwait, including the Mishref Co-Op (pics here) and I wanna’ say Debenhams and of course, the Perfume Exhibition (pics here, all the way at the bottom).

The Perfume Exhibition floor lay-out doesn’t seem to change all that much (the same brands always have their booths set up in the same spot) and as I was heading towards one of the exits to get to my car in the parking area, I passed by the Double Dare counter (located by the exit/entrance).

I finally caved and purchased the adorable OMG! Princess Rabbit Pink Mini Beauty Fan!

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum Haul

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Gift Set

It’s so good to be bad!

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

After walking around for a bit, I found a booth (forgot the name) that sold fragrances from several brands including Paco Rabanne (where I purchased the Invictus Gift Set as a birthday gift for my cousin) and Calvin Klein and Jimmy Choo and Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera and Jean Paul Gaultier and more (can’t remember the rest).

After playing around with Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum I was completely smitten with the scent and picked up the Gift Set for myself!
