Good day, lovelies! It’s almost the end of November, and you know what that means … blogmas is around the bend 👀 which I’m not ready for LOL. With that said, I probably will make this my last post for the month, if not second to last.
ANYWAY, I’m super excited to share what I got during Black Friday with you! Honestly, I didn’t get huge sticker items… I got a couple of athletic wear apparel, but what’s most important is my Bath and Body Works haul. That’s really what this post is about. My adventure at Bath and Body Works this previous Friday and the goodies I got there.
I can’t tell you how long I spent at that store… maybe 2 hours? I’d say half of that time was spent on looking at and smelling everything and deciding what to buy, and the other half was lining up, waiting for the billions of people in front of me to get checked out.
There really was no discounted item that day, but the current sale was Buy 3 Get 3 Free on any and every item in the store. Gosh darn it, I did not take a picture of the store and the chaos happening, and I regret not doing so! BOTH the Bath & Body Works side and their sister store next door, the White Barn, were PACKED. I’ve never been more afraid of walking through that store, for fear that I’d knock down all their candle decorations!
Well anyway, I’ll share with you what exactly I got and why I think this haul was absolutely amazing! I’ve provided links below so you can go shopping too, if you want! 😉
All of the items at Bath & Body Works were at full retail price that day, BUT there was a “Buy 3 Get 3 Free” on ANY and ALL items in store. Here’s a breakdown of what I got.
B&BW’s Aromatherapy line is wonderful and I’ve yet to collect all of them – I only have their “Comfort” lotion, which is Vanilla + Patchouli, but now I’ve got these babies to add to my collection. I really like the way Bergamot smells, and it’s known to relieve tension, stress, and anxiety – something I really need, because I stress really easily. I also just really enjoy the smell of Peppermint, so I got that too! By the time I got there, they unfortunately already ran out of the lotion version so I settled with the aromatherapy oil.
Each of the bottles above were $13.50 USD.
Obviously part of my haul HAD to include some of their new seasonal items!! Just look at that pretty packaging that Winter Berry Wonder lotion ($13.50)… like, how could I NOT get it?! Its light and fruity scent is just wonderful.
B&BW’s Rose line had been out for a little while already but I never got to try it. I regret not ever getting it before because it is probably one of the best if not THE BEST rose scents I’ve ever smelled! I chose to get the Rose fragrant mist ($14.50) over the lotion because the rest of my items in my bag were already body creams and lotions. (Inspo taken from Kasia at https://beautyforthebrain.com/ because she is in LOVE with anything rose scented, especially from B&BW too!)
To be honest, I didn’t pick out that Vanilla Bean Noel lip gloss ($5.50 USD). It was tossed in as a freebie by the employees (aside from my 2 other free coupons!! WHAAATTTT) and I could not be more excited. They have many vanilla scents in the store, and there’s something about their Vanilla Bean Noel line that makes it smell so rich and addicting.
Lastly, I decided to pick some things out for my boyfriend. Is it weird that I bought him stuff when he won’t be coming to visit ’til next summer? 😥 Well anyway, it’s here. I’ll just… stockpile stuff until he arrives. I think it’s really nice that B&BW also has a small section of their store dedicated to men’s body care and fragrances! They all smell very nice, so I definitely had to get him a few things from there. At this time, everything started smelling the same and I could only barely tell the difference between them. Fortunately, I had a second nose to help – my mother’s! She helped me pick stuff out for my boyfriend as well …. Boyfriend, if you’re reading this, h-hi. I got stuff for you. 😁
Teakwood Deodorizing spray ($12.50) – probably my favorite out of all the men’s fragrance. This became one of my freebies thanks to the coupon!
Noir Ultra Shea Body Cream ($13.00)
C.O. Bigelow Barber Elixir Green Cologne ($19.50) – the most expensive item I spent on in B&BW. Wonder how the most expensive thing came to be for the other half and not for myself?? To be fair, the rest of the items are for me… 🤣
SO IN TOTAL, I would’ve paid $119.00 had it not been for all my coupons. I had 2x coupons for a $10 off 30, as well as 2x coupons for a free gift with a purchase, so that’s how I managed to grab so much stuff in one purchase. With my coupons combined, I got all of the above for $23.99. 😍 I’m still in complete amazement that I managed to get all of these for such a price!
Anyway, that’s a wrap for my haul. Did you get anything good on Black Friday?!
