Also at the Avenues, I stepped in to Bath & Body Works (it’s called an addiction) only to find that they were having some sort of random sale (not to be confused with their Semi-Annual Sale). I didn’t know what that was all about, but I went in and picked up a few things, obvi. They’d brought out all the Zodiac Candles (previously purchased two, here). I’m talking an entire shelf stacked from top to bottom of just Zodiac Candles and they were in mint condition too! I also spotted several of the large 3-wick Candles on sale for only KD 3 but in the end, I only purchased the smaller 1-wick Candles. Most of the stuff wasn’t exactly new, but I hadn’t seen it before. Like, where was all this earlier? lol
I was severely disappointed by the fact that they were selling the Holiday 2017 Holiday Collection instead of the Holiday 2018 Collection at Bath & Body Works on December 2018 (pics here). However, I didn’t realize they were doing that, up until I started looking up the fragrance notes for this post, which by then, was obviously too late. This right here, is the reason I stopped buying from Bath & Body Works for so long.
They had some promo or other going on at the time (Buy 3 Get 4 Free), so I grabbed a few things (which turned out to be total fails). I got x2 Dry Shampoo and x2 Body Stuff (Shower Gel + Body Scrub) and x2 Bathroom Stuff (Shower Steamer and Hand Soap) and x2 Scented Candles and x3 Room Sprays. As the icing on the cake, not all the items were included in the promo -_-
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
There was a very cute Rose Collection display (as shown) and an equally cute Pumpkin Collection (shown below) and a ton of the newer Candle Collections (shown below). Best of all, there was either a Buy One Get One Free promo or a Buy 2 Get 2 Free promo on almost everything. Of course, my beloved Sea-Tox Collection and Water Collection were excluded from the promos, but you can’t win ’em all, I guess.
Another promo that I don’t recall them ever having before, was Buy 2 Get 3 Free on all the Hand Soaps! Naturally, I had to partake. Unfortunately, I had one of the sales assistant on my tail (kept trying to shake her off) and I totally would’ve walked out, except I was already invested (I was absolutely besotted with the Rose Fine Fragrance Mist and Paris Cafe Candle and needed them in my life). Honestly, at one point, I couldn’t help but start giggling to myself. I was a grown woman and yet here I was skittering from corner to corner, trying to avoid the sales assistant (who was another grown woman). The whole situation was a bit absurd.
