US Bath and Body Works Holiday Haul (Dec 2020) – Part 3

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.

Nordstrom Haul (Nov 2020)

My last order from Nordstrom, which consisted mostly of Hair Care and Perfume, was back in the beginning of the year (here).

Over the course of that same year, I’d accumulated quite a few things that I’d wanted to purchase from Nordstrom.

Now that the year was almost at an end, on Nov 30 2020 I placed yet another online order with Nordstrom.

There weren’t all that many good deals, this time around.

Bath and Body Works Haulage (Nov 2020) Part 2

On November 22, 2020 a whole bunch of stuff popped up on sale, on the local Bath & Body Works site.

Aside from the travel-size fragrance mists and the aromatherapy range, the rest of the scents were repeats (scents that I’d enjoyed before and now loved)!

Can you believe I got all of this stuff for only KD 40 ?

Bath and Body Works Mini BOGO Haul (Sept 2020)

Next, I hit up Bath & Body Works which was nestled between Victoria’s Secret and MAC, working my way from the far left of the mall (Debenhams). I did take a quick lap around Boots. I also noticed that they’d opened up a Nyx which I had to visit as well.

Bath & Body Works were having a Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) promo going on at the time, but I couldn’t find any interesting scents.

Eventually, I settled on getting Travel-Size Shower Gels in the scents Gingham (because it was their feature scent) and Perfect Peony (because it listed vanilla sandalwood in the notes). They both ended up being too floral for me.

Normally, the Travel-Size Shower Gels retail for KD 2/750 each, but I payed just that for both.

Bath and Body Works Second Quarantine Haul

Bath and Body Works were having a sale and not gonna lie, my previous haul (this) was kinda’ disappointing, so on July 8 2020 I placed another online order with them.

A lot of stuff was missing (out of stock, because of the sale) but they refunded me (my money was back in my account) in a little under two weeks.

Everything arrived individually wrapped in bubble wrap and there was no breakage nor leakage.

US Bath and Body Works Spring Travel Size Haul

These travel-size cuties were from my U.S. B&BW Spring Haul (here).

They were reduced from $6.50 each to $4.16 each.

While I had seen A Thousand Wishes before in Kuwait (older packaging), it had never really appealed to me and I just sorta’ ignored it for all those years.

Even at the end of last year, when I was going to see the movie 1917 at Vox Cinema at the Avenues (seems like a lifetime ago) and “The Big Sale” was going on over at B&BW (across from the escalator), I took a quick peek before meeting up with everyone up top for the movie and noticed that the version being sold was still the red version (older packaging).

Meanwhile, on the U.S. B&BW site, they’d already rolled out the new rosier version (as shown) and I was utterly smitten! Apparently, they’d changed the packaging for the anniversary of the scent A Thousand Wishes.

Thankfully, the newer version of A Thousand Wishes was also available for purchase in the travel size and the same for Champagne Toast, which was a fan-favorite and touted as the scent of the season, yadda yadda yadda.

So I snagged 2 Travel Size Fine Fragrance Mists and a Travel Size Shower Gel in the aforementioned scents.

US Bath & Body Works New Year Shower Gel Haul

These are the Shower Gels I purchased on New Year’s (here).

I’d fallen in love with Little Black Party Dress (so sexy!) and Snowy Morning (so fresh!) and Coconut Lime Breeze (Skittles!) all purchased in My 2nd U.S. B&BW Haul (here) and definitely needed to repurchase them not only as Shower Gels, but also as Body Lotions and Fragrance Mists!

Sadly, once the prices got slashed, they went out of stock pretty quick. I’m sooo happy I managed to get a back-up of Little Black Party Dress and Coconut Lime Breeze as Shower Gels though ^_^

The rest were all new to me, granted I had seen Under Water Oasis in our local stores back in Summer.

Apple Blossom and Black Amethyst and Night Blooming Jasmine were clearly florals. Honestly, I thought they were all new because the U.S. B&BW tend to roll out the Spring/Summer Collections 2-4 months in advance, but apparently the latter two were “retired fragrances” that had been brought back for the semi-annual sale.

Rose Water Meringue and Pink Velvet Cupcake appeared to be gourmands from more recent collections, in addition to Christmas Cookies.

Mineral (Men’s Collection) and Under Water Oasis were some nice freshies, to round everything out.

They all arrived sealed ♥

US Bath and Body Works Hand Soaps and Wallflowers

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!

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)

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

Nordstrom Fragrance Sample Pack (June)

Get a Free Gift when you spend $85 on Women’s Fragrance. Discover your next favorite scent with samples from Diptyque and Tom Ford and Yves Saint Laurent and more.

Towards the end of June, Nordstrom came out with x2 more Sample Packs. One, was a mix of Makeup and Skincare (dis), which wasn’t particularly exciting. The other, was this Fragrance Sample Pack, which was very enticing!

For starters, it came with a sample of Mugler Angel Eau Croisière which I was dying to sniff! The pack also included several flankers of well-loved gourmands, Prada Candy and CH Good Girl and V&R Flowerbomb and YSL Black Opium and YSL Mon Paris! I was pretty excited about the samples from Atelier Cologne and Diptyque and Replica and my beloved Kilian as well! Also, most of these were new-new!

In hindsight though, I totally should’ve skipped the Fragrance Sample Pack (June) because it was mostly either floral-y florals (yuck) or overly sharp and citrus-y scents (namely Peach, ugh).
