I decided to post about my experience using the local Bath&Body Works Online Store (dis).
Like I said in my first post on The Big Event (dis), I didn’t even know that they had a sale going on, up until I checked the website.
I spotted more than a few things I wanted online and even added them to my cart, but didn’t purchase a single thing.
Instead, I went to the Souq Sharq branch of Bath&Body Works and picked up the majority of the items from there.
The things I couldn’t find in-store, I ended up ordering online.
This was my first online order from Bath&Body Works.
As you can see, everything arrived grouped together in a single large box.
It was surprisingly well-packaged too!
Also during The Big Sale, I stocked up on some Shower Gels (top photo) and Body Scrubs (bottom left) and Moisturizers (bottom right) and even a single Fine Fragrance Mist.
I kinda’ went crazy during the sale…
Bath and Body Works Empties Part 1 – here
Bath and Body Works Empties Part 2 (several years later) is a going to be a really, really long post. I was actually making decent progress finishing up my Bath&Body Works products, until I started branching out into other brands. I’m finally done with these Body Scrubs and Shower Gels and Liquid Hand Soaps. I’m pretty sure that Bath & Body Works just make stuff up in the fragrance notes (lol), but I’ll be listing the notes anyway and linking each item to the post where I hauled them. As always, just click on the photos to enlarge.
– French Lavender & Honey Body Scrub
– Endless Weekend Sunset Body Scrub
– Agave Papaya Sunset Sugarcane Scrub
– Pink Cashmere Foaming Sugar Scrub
– At The Beach Sand & Sea Salt Scrub
Starting with the Body Scrubs, not all of them are completely empty, but I’ve come to the realization that I just don’t like these oily Body Scrubs.
In March, Bath & Body Works released a new collection called In The Stars. It was a surprisingly delightful scent! They also came out with a bunch of newer Candles! Lastly, I noticed some more Sheet Masks (hard pass, fool me once and all) and Bath Bombs. For those confused by the signs around the store focusing on Moms, Arabs celebrate Mother’s Day slightly earlier than the rest of the world.
In The Stars
Radiant, Warm, Captivating
Notes: Radiant Amber, Sandalwood Musk, Sweet & Spicy Agarwood
Just by looking at the notes, you can sorta’ tell that In The Stars is going to be all sweet and musky and woodsy! Personally, I really, really like it!
I was looking for a gift for a friend who’d just found out she was preggers and usually L’Occitane has what I’m looking for, but this time, the products I had in mind were only available in a travel-size set (and were consequentially much cheaper), so I ended up getting her something else, from somewhere else. However, I did end up hauling some more of that divine Verbena goodness for myself to use during the upcoming Summer!
Longtime readers of my blog, already know that I stan the L’Occitane Verbena range hard! And to think… it all started when I raided the bathroom amenities at a certain hotel abroad (reviewed here) lol Like I said, the scent was fresh, crisp, citrus-y, uplifting and most definitely unisex! As such, I’ve been a big, big fan of the line ever since! They had other Larger Gift Sets and Smaller Gift Sets and even Travel-Size Gift Sets and everything in-between, but the ones shown (pic, above) were the ones that appealed to me the most.
Rush (Signature Collection) – Velvet Petals (Signature Collection) – Jasmine Noir (Midnight Blooms Collection) – Afterparty Angel (Fashion Show Collection) – Glitter Hustle (Disco Nights Collection) – Shot of Coconut (Juiced Collection)
Like I said in my previous post (here), they brought out all the Limited Edition Collections of the past year (Fashion Show Collection – Angel Collection – Disco Nights Collection, etc…) and knocked them down to half price, whereas the Signature Collection (permanent and can be purchased at any time from any branch) in the old-school packaging (Love Spell – Pure Seduction – Aqua Kiss, etc…) as well as all the newer collections (Cozy Collection – Midnight Blooms Collection – Star Struck Collection, etc…) retailed for KD 7 (full price) but were included in a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” promo.
I ended up getting 2 from the Signature Collection (plain packaging) for KD 7 each, qualifying me for a third one, either from the Signature Collection or any of the newer collections (for free) so I chose Jasmine Noir (newer collection). The other 3 (Afterparty Angel – Glitter Hustle – Shot of Coconut) were not included in the “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” promo, since they were from older collections, but they had all been reduced to only KD 3/500 each. As you can see from the plain packaging, the first two (Rush + Velvet Petals) were from Signature Collection (permanent), whereas the rest were all Limited Edition.
I had a wonderful time sniffing and playing around with all those Fragrance Mists! I could’ve stayed there forever! Best of all, the sales assistants left me alone (to play in peace), for the most part, because they were so busy with other customers!
