It’s sale season here in Malaysia so that means only one thing – the cheapskate in me is totally bursting with so much happiness! I’m not the type who shops for a lot of things in one go but when I entered Bath and Body Works recently, I came out buying more than I actually planned. I came out with 8 items!
Wow. Just wow. I am usually so controlled!
I guess it’s because of how big the discounts were. Three-wick candles that were usually over a hundred ringgit went down to RM26.5 while fragrance mists, lotions, scents for the home, and other products were also sold with a minimum of 50% off.
As you can see on the first photo of this post, my ‘haul’ isn’t that much. But if you compare it to how I normally buy things for myself (I am a calculating, do I really need this?, is the discount worth it?, cost-per-wear, kind of girl), which means like 1 to 2 pieces – sometimes even none – every shopping trip.
I did my calculations and the sale at Bath and Body Works was totally worth it. At the rate of how fast I go through fragrances for myself and our home, I know I’ll be wishing for another sale in their stores.
They also recently launched a new collection which is perfect for summer. It’s called Love & Sunshine and it totally smells like bottled up happiness.
The collection has a shower gel, body lotion, fragrance mist, shimmer mist, body cream, bubble bath, and a foaming sugar scrub. Pretty extensive!
I am in love with this scent as it’s perfect for our climate here in Southeast Asia. It’s a fresh, playful scent that will remind you of bright, sunny days.
It’s got pear blossom, mara strawberry, juicy kiwi, sweet lemon, and honeydew lemon for its top notes plus sunkissed daisies, lilies of the valley, and golden honeysuckle for its middle notes. To round it all up are the dry, base scents of coconut orchid, amber wood, cedar wood, and sunshine musk. That totally seems like a lot (a mouthful, even!) but all these scents make up this really addictive scent that I’ve been wearing a lot.
The scents of Bath and Body Works are advertised to be quite long lasting. But here in sunny and humid Southeast Asia, that’s quite a feat to achieve. One thing to make sure your fragrances last for hours is to layer them. By using skin care and fragrances from the same collection daily, you can make sure that it will be hours into the day before you top up your scents. 😉
Bath and Body Works’ mid-year sale might be over but I’ve got some news for you, my lovely readers. 😉 There’s a Raya promo happening from today until Sunday (12 July 2015)!
If you’re lucky with their spin & win challenge, you can get your total purchases at 20% off, there are also RM18 products available (lotions, shower gels, etc!) and there are free prizes as well! HURRY. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the good stuff, don’t you?
Rest assured, I will be back to visiting Bath and Body Works branches this week so I can buy gifts for my family in Europe. They love BBW but it’s not available where they are! So it’s my turn to give them some sweetness from KL. when I visit them next month. 😉
Will also be buying more candles for our rooms, body cream, and of course – bubble baths! Shh. Don’t tell my husband. 😉 I have yet to think of ways to justify these purchases as our stock cabinet is still pretty full! But I’ll probably go with how fast I use them up! 😀
