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!

Same day, different receipt. I picked up a bunch other stuff at Bath & Body Works, besides those Henri Bendel Signature Candles (hauled here). Like I said, I’ve pretty much been avoiding the place (Bath & Body Works), meaning I hadn’t been keeping up with all the new releases. Meanwhile, they (Bath & Body Works) had come out with a whole slew of new products! Ultra Conditioning Bath & Shower Jelly and Really Refreshing All-Over Mist and Seriously Soft Body Lotion and Really Refreshing Foaming Scrub and Clay Body Scrub, to name a few. Most of those were from the CocoaShea Collection (featuring Coco Butter and Shea Butter, obviously). Other products from the CocoaShea Collection included Richly Nourishing Lightweight Body Oil and Really Refreshing Aloe Gel Lotion and Richly Nourishing Whipped Body Butter and Incredibly Creamy Body Wash. The CocoaShea Collection was available in 3 delicious scents; Cucumber, and Honey, and Coconut. Each scent had it’s own packaging, depicting either Cucumber Slices for the Cucumber range, a Honeycomb for the Honey range, and Coconuts for the Coconut range. Naturally, I had to pick up a few things to try out from the CocoaShea Collection, especially with those names (over-saturated with adverbs). I mean, it’s pretty much how I describe most products (really refreshing, seriously soft, etc…). I also picked up a Clay Body Scrub (different collection) and yet another Scented Candle (because the previous 6 Scented Candles clearly weren’t enough). Luckily, there was a Buy 3 Get 3 Free Deal, going on at the time.

I’ve already tried everything out (back home), and can honestly say that I’m obsessed with every single item in this haul! They all performed pretty well (did what they claimed to do) and most of them smelled ridiculously good while doing it!
