I did it again.
After promising that I’d stop buying body care products after going crazy over Christmas sales … I saw an ad for a Bath & Body Works sale (items going for 60%!) .
Well. We all know what happened next.
Now I have three tubs of body butter to finish, hand creams that will probably sit on the shelf looking pretty, and a candle I don’t really need.
I regret nothing.
Ordered on a weekend night and it arrived three days later, so pretty efficient. Everything was nicely packed and sealed, although the body butter must have overturned sometime during the shipping process, because the mix was stuck to the top of the container when I opened it.
I’ve actually only had candles from Bath and Body Works before, so it’s also my first time trying their body care products. The Gingham series is one of their signatures, covering body lotion, fragrance, body cream, shower gel, and of course, body butter, which I got for RM38 (usual price RM70). Infused with shea butter and coconut oil, the butter is whipped to a fluffy consistency and it is fast-absorbing, providing 24 hours of intense moisture.
I think I like this more than The Body Shop Winter Jasmine body butter: with its fresh blend of bright florals, notes of blue freesia, sweet clementine and soft violet petals, plus a hint of sweet citrus, it smells more natural and makes you think of gentle spring mornings in the English woods, with flowers blooming all around you. The consistency is also super thick and it feels very hydrating.
The other item I got was a Leaves candle (RM38). BBW’s candles are quite expensive, and my self-restraint extended to buying the cheaper single-wick rather than the pricier three-wick candle. I had a Holiday Season 3-wick candle before and I really liked it (the throw was amazing and would fill my entire room), so I’m expecting good things from this one as well. Haven’t burned it yet, but it’s supposed to be a blend of crisp red apples, golden nectar and warm clove spice.
Video review below:
The Semi-Annual sale will be running for some time on bathandbodyworks.com.my, so if you’re looking to get cheap BBW products, now might be a good time to stock up. I think I’m set for the rest of the year lol. Until the next Christmas / New Year’s sale, then!
