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!

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
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!
These are the 3-Wick Candles (forgot to take a group pic, whoops) that I purchased in my 1st US Bath & Body Works Online Order (dis)!
Normally, 3-Wick Candles retail for $24.50 each (around KD8) but they were reduced to $12.50 each (around KD4) during one of the promos.
Not quite sure what’s going on with all the different cardboard packaging, but I don’t really care. As long these suckas reached me intact (unlike our local Bath & Body Works *ahem*), I’m gucci.
Even cooler and unlike the 3-Wick Candles in Kuwait, these babies actually had the fragrance notes listed on the bottom of each Candle!
In the interest of full disclosure, the 3-Wick Candles seriously bumped up my Aramex shipping charges, but whatevs, I earns mah monies so I can does withs it what I wants and I wants Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candles from the newest Holiday Collection shipped from the United States of America, straight to my doorstep.
Lastly, most of these were new-new so don’t expect to see them in Kuwait anytime soon. They’ll probably be available for purchase in Kuwait towards the end of 2020 (being passed off as “new”). So, once the Holiday 2020 Collection drops in the States, only then will the Holiday 2019 Collection be available for purchase in Kuwait.
Now, on to the pretty!
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 on a much-needed vacation abroad, traipsing through the cutesy souvenir shops nestled amongst darling little cafes on cobblestoned streets, when my nose detected a ridiculously yummy scent! I broke away from my friends and immediately followed my nose which led me to Beauty Bar. As soon as I set foot in-store, I was hit with an explosion of mouth-watering scents! They sold all kinds of beautifully-scented body and bath products including stuff from Bomb Cosmetics. It was the perfect place to buy gifts for my family and friends. I’ve never tried Bomb Cosmetics before but if I had to liken them to anything, I’d say Bomb Cosmetics was a mash-up of Lush products with Bath & Body Works scents. Bomb Cosmetics products are hand-made from natural ingredients, vegan-friendly, and they don’t test on animals. I wasn’t in the UK but apparently Bomb Cosmetics is a UK-based brand that supplies several European countries with their extremely affordable products. When my friends eventually caught up to me, we all ended up purchasing stuff from Bomb Cosmetics for our friends and family back home. Obviously, I’ve already given the gifts to the people they were intended for but I also picked up a handful of stuff for myself, as you can see.
