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.


    Happy New year hun and all the best for 2014

    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. :)

  2. I really like the B&BW hand soaps. Looks like you snagged quite a deal!

    1. I look forward to this every year!! I like the anti-bacterial ones more than the foaming ones, what about you?

  3. Every year I stock up on the hand wash too!

    1. I mean, we know we'll go through it so why not??
