There was a very cute Rose Collection display (as shown) and an equally cute Pumpkin Collection (shown below) and a ton of the newer Candle Collections (shown below). Best of all, there was either a Buy One Get One Free promo or a Buy 2 Get 2 Free promo on almost everything. Of course, my beloved Sea-Tox Collection and Water Collection were excluded from the promos, but you can’t win ’em all, I guess.
Another promo that I don’t recall them ever having before, was Buy 2 Get 3 Free on all the Hand Soaps! Naturally, I had to partake. Unfortunately, I had one of the sales assistant on my tail (kept trying to shake her off) and I totally would’ve walked out, except I was already invested (I was absolutely besotted with the Rose Fine Fragrance Mist and Paris Cafe Candle and needed them in my life). Honestly, at one point, I couldn’t help but start giggling to myself. I was a grown woman and yet here I was skittering from corner to corner, trying to avoid the sales assistant (who was another grown woman). The whole situation was a bit absurd.
The last time I actually purchased anything from Bath & Body Works was almost a year ago (haulage here). I’d still pop in for quick peek, from time to time, but most of the releases were quite underwhelming (leaving me less than impressed).
So when I walked into the Mishref Co-op branch of Bath & Body Works that day and spotted both the Water Collection (in-depth deets here) and Sea-Tox Collection (in-depth deets here) I was delighted to find that everything (from the light and fresh scents that were absolutely perfect during hot and stifling weather, to the feature ingredients being Hyaluronic Acid and Seaweed, to the pretty and playful packaging, to the inclusion of fun products including Hair Mists and Facial Mists in addition to the Masks and Scrubs) was ridiculously appealing!
Even better was the fact that Bath & Body Works had an awesome promo (full size items for KD 2/750 and travel size items for KD 1/250) regardless of the sticker price, on both of the newer collections! Has someone at Bath & Body Works been reading my blog? I mean, I’m constantly complaining about new items not being included in any sales or decent promos, so this was quite a nice surprise! Obviously, I had to take advantage of the sweet deal and stock up!
After all the unpleasantness at the Perfume & Makeup Section (here) I was headed towards the exit when I spotted the “new” Sea-Tox Collection (Mermaid Approved) over at Bath & Body Works! It was all Sea Minerals this and Seaweed that, basically detoxing ingredients. On the other side of the Sea-Tox Collection display, they had also had the equally “new” Water Collection on display! You can see them cleverly displayed on life rafts (so cute!) in the promo shot above. The main ingredient being Hyaluronic Acid which is excellent at hydrating your skin!
Both collections had been released world-wide about a couple months ago (I wanna’ say around May), hence the quotation marks around the word new. Meanwhile, we finally got them here in Kuwait at the end of August. They were literally stocking the shelves with the Sea-Tox Collection when I walked in. Personally, I’m just glad both collections even got to us at all. Aside from all the great ingredients, the packaging was pretty awesome too! It’s been awhile since any Bath & Body Works Collection had captured my
heart interest so fully! If that wasn’t enough, for a limited amount of time, all full-size items from both “new” collections would retail for only KD 2/750 each (granted most of the collection retailed for around $17 in the U.S.) which was oh-so-very enticing!
I also spotted a few ridiculously cute items such as Expandable Pop-Up Washcloths in all kinds of fruit designs and Rose-Shaped Bath & Shower Sponges in Light Pink and Red (photos below), but I don’t believe those were part of either of the newer collection. Still… stupid cute!
