Bath & Body Works you torture me...

Posted by   + Show Post
With your 75% off sales! Prices are so good that I just want to buy tons of everything and fill my cart with a bajillion things! Then I go home only to realize I have no room in the cabinet because its full of bath & body stuff I bought from the last sale! I love love love their stuff! It just so happens they are discontinuing my favorite scent, so I just stocked up on it!

Does anyone else have this problem? Please say you do! Haha

When we lived with my mom for a while he got his fill of "Oh Christmas Tree" smell by Claire Burke during the Christmas. My mom loves it, has the oil, potpourri, room spray and etc. When we closed on our house he said that I could have whatever I want with the exception of Christmas Tree scent. It kills me because so many of the Christmas scents that I like, smell like Christmas Tree. The look on his face when he comes home if I get too close to the Christmas tree scent is hilarious.

LOL He hates lotions and perfumes, well not that I smell nice but that I have all these fragrences. I always come home from a yankee or b&bw trip and make him smell everything. The look on his face when DD started using the stuff was priceless.

Yeah that's the only crappy thing about online shopping. They also have a promo going on that if you spend $40 you get $10 off!!!

And yeah that's a long time for a remodel!


Quoting emmypaige:

Then I have to see items add up in my cart.. It's more fun to set it up on the counter, and just not look at the total at checkout. Really though what kind of store closes that long to revamp? It's in a nice shopping center, and looked fine to me before.




Quoting heavenly1462:

Order online :)





Quoting emmypaige:

Screw BB&W ours has been closed for remodeling since April, and won't reopen until next month. Wth!

Exactly. Its so hard to walk out with just two things...especially during the 75% off sales. I love their candles too...I just wish they weren't $20 each.

Quoting lindilouwho82:

 I have an outlet store near me and their everyday prices are similar to 75% off sale prices. I usually stock up once every three months. I make gift baskets out of them or send my sister some overseas. I rarely keep much of what I buy but I agree, it's hard to just stop at one body wash, one lotion or one spray. The product I am most addicted to buying are their candles!

The Sweetheart Series. My favorite is the Honey Sweetheart. It smells sweet like candy and flowers...I can't explain it. But I LOVE it!

Well that definitely sucks! The stores here have TONS of the twisted peppermint stocked. Also the vanilla bean noel. I like that one during the holidays too.

Quoting TEIMSfamily:


In our area they put one bottle of the regular and then like 80 million of the chocolate mint. We just want the plan old peppermint.


Quoting heavenly1462:

They have a TON of cucumber melon on sale right now online! Its like $3 for a bottle of body wash and lotion! They also still have twisted peppermint around Christmas time. I have some of it in my cabinet. Lol



Quoting Anonymous:

not since they took away their cucumber melon and do not stock their shelves (in my area) with their twisted peppermint. I am on strike. Except my sil did give me a white citrus that is amazing! still
