If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that the last week has been Bath & Body Works mania on all fronts! Little do you know, however, that my house is basically a mini Bath & Body Works because I've been hoarding behind your backs!
This is going to be a bit of a quick post because the sale ends tomorrow. These are some items I own and what you really should pick up because the deals are too good to be missed. Full reviews will be up at a later date, but go forth and shop now!
In case you haven't been informed, if you buy 6 items, you get an additional 10% off, and if you buy 8 items, you get an additional 15% off. This includes already discounted merchandise, as well are those that are not on promotion.
I'm going to kick off with a product that isn't available in Malaysia (yet, hopefully), and it's one of my favourite candles from BBW. It sits in its own little jacket (also from BBW - currently on sale) on my desk where it's lit to inspire inspiration for my posts!
[What's Under the Jacket?]
[London Calling Three-Wick Candle - Tea & lemon]
Everyone knows I'm addicted to all things caffeine, but I have a special affinity for tea. While I don't actually like drinking lemon tea, this candle is absolutely wonderful. It also holds a special place in my heart because the lovely Samia got it for me all the way from Dubai before BBW opened up here.
[Look How Pretty!]
Even the lid on this candle is gorgeous!
Next up, a candle which was newly acquired during the sale for RM26.50, at 75% off. Unfortunately most of the candles have been snapped up, but it's still worth hunting for!
[Black Teakwood Three-Wick Candle - Smells like a man!]
This candle sits on my bedside table because it's a little more masculine and perfect for the bedroom (end of details).
If you're wondering why I don't have a jacket for this, it's because the glass is so thick it acts as a holder on its own. It won't damage the surface its on so you don't need to put anything under it if you don't want to.
I also picked up a candle for my living room during the sale that I haven't burned yet. RM26.50 too!
[Rainforest Gardenia Three-Wick Candle - Fresh & lightly floral]
While I'm not a fan of food scents in my home, I simply couldn't resist picking up Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut at 75% off. I utterly love the scent of cinnamon, and I need doughnuts in my life at all times. It also makes me happy that "doughnut" is correctly spelt!
[Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut Three-Wick Candle - Smells good enough to eat!]
This is part of their White Barn Market collection of confectionery scented candles that are amazing!
[White Barn Market - For the foodies!]
As I said, I'll be doing in-depth reviews later on, but this is just a bit of a head's up.
That can't be all by way of candles, can it? No!
[In the Bathroom: Japanese Cherry Blossom Mini Candle and Warm Vanilla Sugar Hand Cream]
Both of these were also gifts from Samia and they're two of BBW's signature scents as well. Warm Vanilla Sugar is a favourite in the States, and while I don't love vanilla scents on the whole, this is far from too sickly-sweet and I leave it on my bathroom counter to use after washing my hands, since I tend to do so around 60 times a day.
Japanese Cherry Blossom is also a much sought-after scent, and I can tell you first-hand that it is something you need in your collection. Unfortunately, it isn't on sale, but you could pick up 6 or 8 items, and get a pretty good deal on it!
[More BBW on the Counter]
Quite frankly, there is nothing in this world I love more than hand soaps, and BBW takes the cake on this one! They carry 2 different types of hand soaps: Gentle Foaming and Deep Cleansing. My preference runs towards the Deep Cleansing variety because it has tiny exfoliating beads which aren't too abrasive in them. All the hand soaps you see below are of the Deep Cleansing range, but each scent comes in Gentle Foaming as well.
[Used Up: Caribbean Escape and Amazon Orchid]
Both these scents are lovely! I'm not sure if Caribbean Escape is a permanent item, but I do know that Amazon Orchid is from the last collection they launched and is currently going at 50% off (RM16).
What I'm currently using is also from the last collection:
[Wild Mango Mojito]
Oh, I do love this one! It's also going at 50% off (RM16), so I urge you to pick it up!
Of course, the kitchen needs some good soap too! They do have a dedicated scent called Kitchen Lemon, but it smells too astringent to me so I'm not a fan of it.
These are the items I've used up in the kitchen.
[Peach Bellini and Sweet Tangerine]
I know Peach Bellini is in their regular line, and I think Sweet Tangerine is too, but I'm not sure. I certainly hope it is because both of these are to die for! I truly can't pick which I prefer and although they aren't discounted at 50% off, you can still get 2 for RM50, plus the additional discount as stated above.
Currently in use in my kitchen is a bottle from their latest collection:
[Sun Shine & Lemons]
As I mentioned, I'm not a fan of the Kitchen Lemon scent, and I much prefer this! It's so nice and fresh and make me so happy!
Of course, because I'm a hoarder, I have extra bottles of hand soap lying in my drawer. I am all set for the zombie apocalypse! I will kill them with hygiene!
First up, from the last collection, I still have one of the scents remaining. Mind you, this collection will be out of stores soon, as soon as it's all sold out, so pick them up NOW at 50% off!
[Rio Samba Sunset]
And from their new collection, which I got at 2 for RM50:
[Spring Time & Clementines, Water Lily & Lime and Blue Skies & Blossoms]
And something I hadn't noticed prior to the sale, which I assume came out with their Moroccan collection:
[Moroccan Fig & Honey]
The Fig & Honey scent was also going for RM16, so if you see it, get it! It's divine! I'm saving it for when I run out of what's in my bedroom. Just like this the next hand soap, which is of the non-deep cleansing variety:
[Sleep Sommeil - Lavender & vanilla]
This is part of their calming range, and I believe it was on sale at 50% off too, though I may be mistaken. This is part of their relaxation range, and the first thing I bought from BBW when they opened up here was from the collection too.
[Sleep Sommeil Bath Salts]
These aren't on super promotion, but they are truly divine! If you have a bathtub, you need these in your life!
Next up, let's talk hand sanitiser. I believe only Twilight Woods is on sale for RM6, but if you see any others available for that price, buy them all!
These are the PocketBacs I've already used up:
[Twilight Woods and Island Margarita]
Last month they had a sale where they were 5 for RM35, so I stocked up! This is what I'm currently using:
Of course, I have to have extras, right?
[Lavender, Blue Skies & Blooms, Springtime & Clementine]
Lavender is part of their regular range if I'm not wrong, but the other two came out with the latest collection.
One would think that it would end here, but one would be wrong. Why? Because, wallflowers!
The awesome thing about Bath & Body Works is that the truly sort your home out. They have wall plug-ins which leave your home smelling wonderful all the time. A number of scents are on sale for RM8, so you really need to stock up! The plug-in itself is around RM25 if I recall correctly.
In any event, they're having a bit of a sale where 4 wallflowers are RM100 for those that aren't on super sale.
I have a plug-in for my living room, bedroom and my makeup room, so I go through 3 of these a month. I really can't remember the scents I've used up because they're not printed on the bulbs. I do wish they would find a way to do this! The cool thing about these is that once there's no liquid left, you could pop it in your cupboard and the scent still lingers so your clothes smell divine!
At RM8, I couldn't resist stocking up!
[Amazon Falls, Island Margarita, Lilac Blossom, Brazilian Blue Waters, Relax, Peach Bellini and Island Water]
BBW also do scents, and I have a lovely bottle, also from my darling Samia:
[Paris Amour Body Mist]
A number of mists and lotions are also on 50% off so raid your nearest BBW!
Last but not least, to make it up to Pinata for buying out BBW over the last month and a half, I bought him something. Yes, just one item because I am a terrible wife!
[Paris 2-in-1 Body and Hair Wash]
They carry an entire range for men as well and this was on sale for RM15.50 (75% off). Don't tell him that!
What's really stressful is that among all the sale items, you're going to see this big, bright yellow display that's just calling to be sniffed! Their latest collection, Love & Sunshine, is out in stores and be warned that you are going to want it all!
[Love & Sunshine - Now in stores!]
The additional 10% and 15% discounts are applicable to the new collection as well, so go for it!
[Love & Sunshine Goodies]
A review of the collection will be up soon, so stay tuned!
And now, a little something for those of you who are sorely devoid of BBW in your lives! I've got a small little giveaway for you!
