Bath & Body Works Haul

December 31, 2013
Every year for Christmas, I ask for a Bath & Body Works gift card so that I can take advantage of their semi-annual sale.  During this sale, I just stock up in bulk on items that I will use in the months to come.  It gives me the chance to try out new scents that I probably wouldn't otherwise buy at full retail price.  This year I didn't buy as much as I usually do, but did end up with:

3 Anti-bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps in Island Breeze, Berry Sangria, and Sicilian Lemon
1 Passionfruit Fig Gentle Foaming Soap
2 mini body lotions in Sexy Dahlia Rush and Sweet Peony Dream
1 Shimmer Bomb in Cashmere Glow
1 Full sized body lotion in Capri Seaside Citrus
1 Full sized bath gel in Capri Seaside Citrus
3 Creamy Body Washes in Pink Chiffon, Twilight Woods, and Carried Away


Paying full price for these items would have been:
$5.50 x 4 for the soaps= $22.00
$5.00 x 2 for the mini lotions= $10.00
$14.00 x 1 for the shimmer bomb= $14.00
$11.00 x 2 for the bath gel and body lotion= $22.00
$12.50 x 3 for the creamy body washes= $37.50

Total price: $105.50

I only paid (with tax) $26.75 for all of these items since they were all marked down and I had a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase.  The best part was that I used my BBW gift card to pay for $20 of the $26.75, so I just paid the $5.00 and then $1.75 in tax for all of those items.  Wahoo!

The only purchase I'm kind of uncertain about is the Cashmere Glow Shimmer Bomb.  I thought it was a type of sparkily bath gel, but I think you just put it on your skin to make it shimmery.  Oh well, I'm beyond happy with my savings and with the other items!  I didn't even know BBW carried creamy body washes, so I'm excited to try those out.  They were on sale for just $3 each yesterday.


 Will you be stopping by Bath and Body Works for their clearance sale?

  1. Leave some for the rest of us Lisa! lol Just kidding I go nuts in Bath and Body Works as well, one of my fav scents is Twilight Woods but sometimes I am in there for a while because I can't choose! I love all the scents you picked as well.

    1. Haha...I didn't even buy that much this year compared to past years. The scents I bought this time that I haven't tried yet are the Sexy Dahlia Rush, Sweet Peony Dream, and all the hand soaps! Twilight Woods is my #1 pick from there, too!! The only reason I didn't buy more of that kind is because I already have a body wash and lotion from there waiting to be used. :)
