Tag: Bath & Body Works
Oops, I did it again…I went wild at Bath & Body Works.
I was planning on going in person, but Lily was at Band Camp and I promised her that I wouldn’t go without her…but then I got an email with 20% and free shipping…and I lost all of my senses. I’m not gonna outline every single thing that came in the box…it was A LOT. I got 11 Wallflower Refills ($2.80 each with discount) and 14 Hand Soaps ($2.60 each with discount). I added only one scent to my shower – “Fresh Cut Lilacs” – I got Shower Gel, Fine Fragrance Mist & Ultimate Hydration Body Cream ($3.16 each with discount). I got Lily “Waikiki Beach Coconut” Shower Gel ($3.16 with discount) to match some shampoo she likes. I splurged on a “Pink Lilac & Vanilla” 3-wick candle ($9.56 with discount) and a “Cacao Rose” Essential Oil Mist ($6.20 with discount) for my pillows. The receipt doesn’t say how much I saved, but it must have been at least $125.
When Lily got back from Band Camp though, we took a peek at our local store, since I still had my $10 off $40 coupon. There was this lady there shopping – we think she was a PLANT – and she kept having me smell candles and I ended up buying a bunch of 7oz candles…but they were only $3.07! I got myself a loofah, but I let Lily pick out some random bath stuff – I hope she likes smelling like “Cucumber Melon” Shower Gel and “Dreamsicle” Body Spray. Ick. This receipt at least tells me that I saved $110 – I only spent $41!
The Semi-Annual Sale still has a few days left – go git ya some!
One of a Kind Haul
I am kind of a sucker for Bath & Body Works’ Mother’s Day bags/boxes/whatever. They don’t tag them for Mother’s Day any more…but I know that’s what they are.
This year’s thing was a box called “One of a Kind” and it was $40 with a $40 purchase. The box featured two new scents – “Butterfly” (not to be confused with “Butterfly Flower”, which is a totally different scent) and “Bubbly Rosé.” The notes in “Butterfly” are raspberry nectar (no idea what that smells like), iris and vanilla. I was happy to get Fragrance Mist, Body Lotion, Shower Gel, Antibacterial Hand Spray, and a single wick candle. The notes in “Bubbly Rosé” are pink rosé, blood orange and cranberry. I feel like I would like to wear this on my body – but the products included were a three wick candle, Foaming Hand Soap and Lip Gloss. I checked B&BW’s site – they DO sell “Bubbly Rosé” body products…note to self, remember this for the upcoming Semi-Annual Sale next month.
To get to $40, I took advantage of a $2.95 Hand Soap sale. I bought 20, which is way more than $40, but still a smoking deal. I wasn’t feeling like going to an actual store, so I placed an order online – $6.99 shipping is a small price to pay to be able to stay in bed. I was also psyched that I was able to use the 25% off mailer coupon – SCORE!
Still a Little Sale Left…
That’s right, there’s still a little Semi Annual Sale left at Bath & Body Works. I bopped in a few days ago to see what was 75%.
I have never heard of “Whipped Rose Latte”, but roses and coffee? Yes, please. It’s a pleasant, homey scent – nothing like you’d expect a rose scent to be like. The only product left was Body Cream (75% off), so that’s all I got. My husband sniffed it and HATED it…sigh, so the cream is relegated to my office.
The only 75% off Hand Soap was “Boardwalk Vanilla Cone”, so I just got one. I also grabbed 3 more 75% off Wallflower Refills.
Lily wanted the Tea Tree & Peppermint Essential Oil Mist, but I am not sure what for. It wasn’t 75% off – it was $4.95.
I got more coupons in the mail a few days ago…should I make another visit?
Watch out for that Semi!
…And just like that, the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale is upon us!
Since the sale just started, I took it easy on the hand soap – only 4 made it into my bag. The sale hand soaps were still $3.50 each, plus, I just stocked up.
I DID stock up on $3.50 Wallflower Refills – I didn’t mean to buy 8, but my child kept putting them into my cart!
I have been wanting to try the “Rose” scent, so I jumped on 50% off Body Lotion and Shower Gel. I let Lily pick a Shower Gel and she got “Berry Waffle Cone” for 75% off.
I got a $10 off $40 coupon in the mail – nothing in my email yet. I need another coupon so I can go back!
$2.95 Hand Soap
I only had a dozen or so bottles of Hand Soap under my sink – it was very nearly a soap emergency!
Bath & Body Works to the rescue – they had $2.95 Hand Soaps last Saturday. I bought 20.
I was a little annoyed that they wouldn’t allow me to stack my 20% off coupon with the sale – they’ve done that in the past. They did let me stack the free product coupon, so I let Lily pick out a body wash. She chose “Champagne Apple & Honey”. I was intrigued by the scent, so I also picked a Hand Soap in that scent.
The receipt said I saved $103.50 – not bad, not bad at all.
Double Semi Annual
I hit this summer’s Semi Annual Sale twice, so I figured I might as well cover them at the same time.
My first trip was the first week of the sale, at my closest location. Right as you walk in, there is a huge display of 75% off items. I got back-up Body Creams in “Kaleidoscope” and “Chocolate Covered Cherry”, as well as trying out a few new scents. I got Shower Gel/Body Cream combos of two scents from the Aromatherapy line: “Sunrise Yoga” and “Hot Spring Spa”. They both smell amazing and quite different than the floral/sweet scents filling up my shower. I finished off my haul with a few 75% off Hand Soaps and $3.50 Wallflower refills. After using my $10 off $40 mailer, I ended up spending $39, but according to my receipt, I saved $122!
My second haul from a different location was quite small. I got Lily a 75% off “Cherry Limeade” Body Spray/Lotion combo and a 75% off “Capri” Shower Gel for the husband. This location had bath poofs, so I stocked up! I spent $21 here, but only saved $32.
Sale Before the Sale
Although we’re in deep into the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale, right BEFORE that sale started, I got an email that ALL Hand Soaps were $3.95…with a $10 off $40 coupon AND free shipping. I jumped right on that!
I picked lucky 13 different Hand Soaps, which brought the price down to $3.18. Not bad, but if I was better at math, I would’ve just bought 11. If I’d have only bought 11, then the price would’ve been $2.57 each!
I am currently using the “Fresh Cut Lilacs” in my bathroom. I have been OBSESSED with lilacs lately – I’m thinking about planting a bush.
I Want to Smell Like FOOD
Ignore the bag, the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale is OVER.
As soon as I got the Valentine’s Day mailer, I knew I would be hitting the store again to pick up those delicious scents. I decided on “Chocolate Covered Cherry” (it’s SO chocolatey), “Strawberry Pound Cake” (a re-promote that I’ve been lusting after), and “You’re the One” (soft rose, winter woods and strawberry nectar – I couldn’t describe any of those scents individually, but together they’re heavenly). I was torn between “Strawberry Pound Cake” and “Raspberry Jam Donut”, but strawberries won out. I’ll keep an eye out for “Raspberry Jam Donut” in the next Semi-Annual Sale.
I got doubles of “Chocolate Covered Cherry” so Lily could smell good, too.
Body products were Buy 3, Get 3 and with the 20% coupon from my mailer (and a coupon for a free Wallflower), I only spent $78. I saved $111!
Santa, I’ve been a good girl all year and have worn my mask and washed my hands SO MUCH…it’s time for more soap!
I only got 13 soaps at the Semi-Annual Sale, not many at all! When I put them under my sink, they didn’t even fill up the whole soap section.
I meant to get $40 of stuff, so I could use my $10 off $40 coupon, but I ended up with about $80…oops. Some of the soaps were 50% off ($3.75 – not a great deal) and some were 75% off ($1.87 – much better). I also got 8 Wallflower Refills ($3.50 each) and a few body scrubbers.
A light haul…I’m sure I’ll be back before the sale is totally over.
I always forget that the Bath & Body Works in Katy Mills Mall is an OUTLET.
I guess the outlet stores get all the stuff that regular stores didn’t sell during the Semi Annual Sale, because this store had a mountain of 75% off stuff!
I’ve had my eye on “Rose Water Meringue” for a while. 50% wasn’t good enough, but 75% was just right. The scent is VERY sweet and eggy, almost like cotton candy. It’s not an every day soap – it is for special occasions only. I got two shower gels, a fine fragrance mist and a body cream.
I also picked up a back-up “Rose Water & Ivy” Body Cream, as well as a “Pink Watermelon” Shower Gel for Lily, a “Strawberry Pound Cake” Hand Cream and Raspberry Lip Gloss for me. I also got two “Ballerina Rose” Three Wick Candles – I’d never even seen that scent before! Again, all this stuff was 75%.
A few tables worth of hand soaps were $3 each, so I picked up five. The stand out was “Lavender Rose”. Again, another headache-less lavender – it smells amazing.
I did buy a few things at full price: a few bath poofs and some Hand Sanitizer for Logan.
According to my receipt, I spent around $53 and I saved $145.50, thanks to 75% off outlet pricing and my 20% off + free product mailer.
