Towards the end of the year, everything was significantly reduced in price at the US Bath & Body Works so I had to place an order with them.
From my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Haul (here)
– Sugar Plum Swirl (retired fragrance)
– Snowy Morning (retired fragrance)
– Country Apple (retired fragrance)
– Coconut Lime Breeze (retired fragrance)
– Oahu Coconut Sunset (retired fragrance)
– Cashmere Glow (retired fragrance)
– Sensual Amber (retired fragrance)
– Raspberry Sugar (holiday traditions)
– Winterberry Wonder (fall into holiday)
– Little Black Party Dress (all that glitters)
– Fresh Sparkling Snow (all that glitters)
– Twinkling Nights (all that glitters)
Shower Gels normally retail for $12.50 (KD 3/800) each
They had a Buy 3, Get 3 Free promo on Body Care. Also, 20% Off the entire order. So, I decided to get the rest of the Shower Gels that I had my heart set on (from the ones that were still in stock), especially since all the Shower Gels in my 1st U.S. B&BW Online Order (here) turned out to be great!
I feel like I got a nice mix of scents this time too, ranging from warm to fresh to fruity to gourmand and even floral (I was feeling adventurous)!
Again, at the time of my second order, my first order (haulage here) hadn’t even shipped.
Settle in with a nice mug of whatever you drink and a cozy shawl or whatever because this post is going to be… a novel lol
I love things that smell great! I love ’em! I just do!
Perfumes and Body Mists and Hair Mists and Dry Shampoo and other Hair Products and Room Scents and Car Fragrances and Candles and Shower Gels and Deodorants and Body Lotions and Hand Soaps and Bar Soaps and Antibacterial Hand Sanitizers and Skincare and Lipgloss and heck, even Fabric Softener! If it’s scented, I’m so down!
I’ve always enjoyed scented stuff (scratch’n’sniff stickers anyone?), but now, it’s grown into a full-blown obsession…
So, even though I’d just placed my first US Bath & Body Works Online Order only days before, on November 30 (haulage here), I went ahead and placed my second US Bath & Body Works Online Order on December 5.
Keep in mind that it takes anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks for my online orders to ship from the country of origin (U.S.) to my country (Kuwait), queued up to get cleared by customs and then finally, delivered to my doorstep. So at the time of my second order, my first order hadn’t even been shipped.
I got mostly Shower Gels (x12) and Jar Candles (x17) and some travel size stuff (x3).
My justification was that I wouldn’t be able to order this stuff online anymore, once the weather got warmer. I mean I could, but they’d probably arrived damaged from the heat. Also, all through December, there were new deals on the daily! Not to mention 20% Off the entire order and another 20% Off Coupon Code that arrived with my order!
Pretty, right? I thought so too! I even bought a few things.
Back home, when I googled the notes for an upcoming post, I realized that instead of the Holiday 2018 Collection, they were selling the Holiday 2017 Collection and passing it off as the newer collection!
Everything that people were buying was already a year old! No wonder those Body Creams usually smell horrible in under a month! They were already old by the time we bought them! We’d been buying old products at retail price. I mean, is this even legal?
The joys of living in Kuwait…
