What the heck bath and body works

Am I the only one that thinks their prices are incredibly insane now? I've used them exclusively for body wash since 92 or 93 and their prices have more than doubled since then. A 10 oz bottle of body wash has a price sticker of 12.50. What the hell? I know they have sales constantly but I swear when I need them nothing is on sale or the stuff I want isn't on sale.

I remember getting 100 dollars worth of gift cards from them one year and buying enough stuff to not have to buy body wash for 3 or 4 years but now 100 bucks buys me maybe a years supply.

Are there Any other companies out there like bath and body works that aren't as proud of their stuff?

The last time I bought Bath and Body Works I broke out in a full rash. I had used it for years previously with no problem. I use Philosophy now and spend 10.00 a bottle when it is on sale. I believe it is around 16.00 regular price but a bottle lasts forever.

It is. I hate it, I've been incredibly loyal to them for a long time but I just can't justify spending that much on body wash.

They are hideously expensive. It's best to only buy when they have their semi annual sales. Otherwise you'll go broke.

They haven't went up that much. I was paying $8 in 96-98 and $10 in early 2000's. I love B&BW's.

They've done that to a few of mine. It's a freaking game because they will introduce the old scents once or twice a year and call it a special edition *rolls eyes*

My fav was country Apple.
