Look what just arrived on my doorstep! I'd received a Bath & Body Works gift certificate for my birthday and since it could only used online, and the semi-annual sale started online the day after Christmas, what better time to use it?
There were so many things that I would have like to get, but I tried to stay practical. All those millions of candles I was drooling over would have been put aside for next fall and Christmas, and I didn't want to do it that way again. I'm hoping to buy fresh and only as I go through things next fall and winter. As for body care, it takes me forever to go through lotions and sprays, so I tend to go for the smaller sizes there. Even shower gels take me a while since hubby and Casey use their own. So yeah, this might look like a slightly underwhelming haul. lol
The quick description of this is 'A seductive blend of dark berries with a kiss of vanilla,' but there is so much more than that going on in this scent. I was thrilled to see this because I could have sworn this was discontinued long ago. I noticed it says this is an online exclusive. I got a full sized shower gel and lotion.
Black Raspberry Vanilla
I grabbed a full size shower gel of this, hoping it will pair well with the Bodycology Blackberry Vanilla lotion I got for Christmas.
Mad About You
I'd not heard of this scent before receiving a full sized bottle of the lotion for Christmas. I decided to grab the travel size shower gel and spray to go with it. This scent is described on the site as 'A love-struck pairing of soft peonies & black currant kissed with creamy vanilla musk.' Do you see a trend here? Dark berries, vanilla, and musk. I guess that's me.
I've had this before and since I received a full sized lotion for Christmas and thought I'd get the travel sized shower gel and spray to go with it. I think there is a Bodycology scent similar to this, and I know I liked that, so maybe I can pair it with the lotion when these little babies run out.
Warm Vanilla Sugar
I think this was my introduction to Bath & Body Works, many years ago. It's still a favorite. I received a full sized shower gel, and a Bodycology Toasted Sugar lotion for Christmas, so I grabbed this travel sized spray to go with them.
Although there were a ton of amazing looking candles on sale, I didn't want to stock up on things for next year. I do love the look of these mason jar candles though, and I need a bit more to use up the gift certificate, so I caved . . . just a wee bit.
I'm not sure I realized this was a mini when I ordered it, and even if I did, I had no idea just how tiny it would be. It's freakin' adorable!!!! I want a million of these next fall and winter! It is a miniature mason jar, complete with lid! It is a 1.3 ounce candle. So so sooooo, farking cute! I just might have to go back to the site and grab more, just in case they don't have them next year. Heck, I might even have to hit up the actual store! And since they included two '20% off your order' coupons, I can get 20% more minis. wOOt!
That is my slightly boring but very practical Bath & Body Works haul. Did you elbow your way through the semi-annual sale? What did you get? What are some of your favorites? Most importantly, have you seen those mini mason jar candles?!
