Started this post on January 4 and only got around to posting it on April 4 lol
I’ve only ever heard of Candle Day, but never actually experienced it for myself, or even knew what day it fell on. Heck, I don’t think we’ve ever had Candle Day in Kuwait.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I logged on to the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store and accidentally stumbled on Candle Day! Basically, if you don’t know what Candle Day is, it’s when 3-Wick Candles go on sale!
I added a ton of 3-Wick Candles to my online cart and immediately placed my order, but my credit cart was all “nah lol you’re outta $$”.
Of all the times to exceed the limit on my darn online credit card, I had to run out of $$ on Candle Day?!?!
Thankfully, I still had some $$ left. There was a lot of “mathing” involved, but I figured out I had just enough for x10 3-Wick Candles, with a little something extra for taxes (we don’t have taxes in Kuwait so I’ve got now clue how to calculate that stuff lol)
Deal at the time of this order:
3-Wick Candles were reduced from $24.50 each down to only $9.50 each
$9.50 Today Only! – with code CANDLECRAZE
As I said, the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store had some pretty good deals all throughout December! They were releasing new products and new deals pretty much on the daily!
The deals at the time of this order:
– Hand Soaps were reduced from $6.50 to $3
– Wallflower Fragrances Duos (2pc) were 3 for $27 (normally $12.50 each)
– Wallflower Fragrances (singles) were 5 for $23 (normally $7.50 each)
– Use code SANTA for 20% Off Entire Order
I decided to pick up a few Wallflower Fragrances and Hand Soaps.
Wallflower Fragrances make my home smell ah-mazing and they were on sale! Win, win.
Hand Soaps tend to smell great too and they were on sale as well ergo good time to stock up!
From my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Haul (here)
Jar Candles were reduced from $14.50 (KD 4/400) to $8 (KD 2/400) each
According to the reviews, Jar Candles packed quite a punch and could scent up a spacious room within minutes! I was a bit skeptical, but decided to see for myself, especially since these babies were on sale.
You guys, the reviews were not wrong! For whatever reason, these little things were far superior to their much larger counterparts! I mean, I haven’t actually burned any of them yet, but even on cold throw, some of these were straight up beast-mode!
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!
Bath & Body Works had this Buy 3 Get 3 Free deal going on. So, I decided to pick up a few more things and “take advantage” of that deal.
Unfortunately, their online website was still very glitchy and not the most intuitive. As a result, I ended up having to place several separate online orders, as opposed to one single online order. I really wish they’d just fix their site already.
So, in my previous order, I picked up x12 Wallflower Fragrance Refills (here) and during this order, I picked up x6 3-wick Candles. There was an issue with both packages.
3-wick Candles normally retail for KD 8 each. The total for this order was KD 24/000 (with free shipping)
Well, that’s not true.
I placed my order on December 6 and everything arrived the next day…
Except I could hear something moving around inside the box…
I was only passing by (on my trek from Sephora to Bath & Body Works) when I spotted this delightful Forest of Delights display! Apparently, The Body Shop had released 3 Limited Edition Scents for Winter/Holidays 2018.
– Vanilla Marshmallow
– Peppermint Candy Cane
– Berry Bon Bon
