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.
Supposedly, you could mix and match, but when I added a few Wallflower Fragrance Refills, it wouldn’t let me combine them with Hand Soaps and kept giving me an error message.
When I tried to add 3-wick Candles to the mix, it showed me that I was going to have to pay full price for all the 3-wick Candles and get the much cheaper Wallflower Fragrance Refills for free.
Basically, my best option was to place 2 separate orders; one for Wallflower Fragrance Refills and another for 3-wick Candles.
Man, I wish they’d fix their website already, to where it would be slightly more intuitive.
Wallflower Fragrance Refills retail for KD 2/250 each
Aside from a few experimental ones, I mostly went with sweeter scents.
I picked up x12 Wallflower Fragrance Refills and payed for x6 while the other x6 ended up being free (due to the Buy 3 Get 3 Free promo). The total for this order was KD 11/250 (with free shipping). I placed my order on December 5 and everything arrived safely the next day, except…
Also at Marina Mall, I popped by VaVaVoom.
I was actually looking for an Oscar De La Renta fragrance but couldn’t seem to find the brand (not at the Autumn Perfumes Exhibition and not at Harvey Nichols, not even at Sephora). I did however stumble upon the Juicy Couture counter which I didn’t even know existed there before now (I’ve been meaning to give Viva La Juicy Gold Couture a sniff since forever).
The lovely Filipina sales assistant was so helpful and accommodating that I ended up purchasing Viva La Juicy Gold Couture Eau de Parfum on the spot! She even tossed in a 3pc Holiday Candle Gift Set (red box) and filled up an 8mL Atomizer Spray for me (with a perfume of my choosing) and gave me several fragrance samples to boot!
Also during The Big Sale, I stocked up on some Shower Gels (top photo) and Body Scrubs (bottom left) and Moisturizers (bottom right) and even a single Fine Fragrance Mist.
Not sure how many items from the 60-Piece Summer Collection actually made it to our lil Kuwait, but from what I can see, there’s plenty to appeal to everyone! Aside from the usual Shower Gels and Body Lotions and Body Creams, you’ve also got Hand Creams and Hand Soaps and Body Scrubs and Fragrance Mists and Hair Perfumes and Candles to choose from. Plus, you have the option of going for either the full sizes or the cuter travel sizes! The scents are appropriately tropical and summer-y, while the packaging this time is quite fun, and the names are all simply delightful! Honestly, the Summer 2019 Collection really is worth checking out!
Like I said earlier, my niece had run out of her Havana Fragrance Mist in the travel-size (dis) and asked if I could get her another one. So when I took the kids to see Toy Story 4 at Souq Sharq (fully gory deets here), we hit up Fantasy World and MAC (dis) and Bath&Body Works before the movie, and Sultan Center after the movie (dis) .
At B&BW I got the Havana Fragrance Mist for my niece, and the Tahiti Shower Gel and Bahamas Body Cream for myself, all in the travel-size versions. As always, there was a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” deal, which meant the lowest priced item ended up being free.
Even though I’d already ordered from Nordstrom at the start of June (dis), I placed another order at the end of June, mainly because I wanted a second Hair Care Sample Pack (dis) which happened to still be available (at the time). After this order though, I think I’m gonna’ cool it with Nordstrom (for a bit). It’s just too hot to be ordering stuff online.
Anyways, I got something from Alterna and two more somethings from Bumble and Bumble. Other than the Hair Care Sample Pack there was an Alterna Gift With Purchase and Bumble and Bumble Gift With Purchase which included deluxe samples from each brand! Yaaay!
I also got some more Bar Soaps and Candles to qualify for the Fragrance Sample Pack (dis). I was actually interested in purchasing Mojave Ghost from Byredo and Philosykos from Diptyque as Perfumes, but it was way too hot to risk (the heat might alter the contents and therefore the scent). So, I got them as Bar Soaps instead. Plus, this way, I could “test” the scents first, rather than buying them as Perfumes and possibly ending up hating them.
The Makeup stuff was from Benefit and I only got them because I really, really had my heart set on the Benefit Gift With Purchase that came with a very, very cute Benefit Clear Tote Bag and some samples. Also, it helped bump up the total of my order so I could qualify for the latest Sample Pack (dis).
I accidentally spent KD 75 (almost $250) at Saveco! lol
With the kids still in tow, we popped by Bath & Body Works (Souq Sharq). I’d seen the new Summer Collection earlier (over at The Avenues branch), but hadn’t actually given anything a proper sniff.
As soon as we walked in, I could smell my beloved Pineapple Orchid Candle (haulage here). I traced the scent to Bahamas Pink Passionfruit & Banana Flower Mist (which was part of the new Summer Collection).
Since I was all stocked up on well, everything, I figured I’d just get the Travel-Size Mist (although small, they pack quite a wallop… depending on the scent you choose) and since they had a Buy 2 Get 3rd Free deal on Travel-Size Mists, I let the girls each pick out one of their own. Then, by the cash register, I picked up a PocketBac and let the elder two each pick out one of their own, because there happened to be a Buy 2 Get 3rd Free deal on PocketBacs too.
As per usual, everything was over-priced, but that’s Bath & Body Works for ya’!
