Sometimes when I burn a scented candle, I feel like a modern-day Pavlov is experimenting on me because instead of salivating to the sound of a bell, I’m drooling over yummy fragrances.
From the first sniff, I fell in love with the Bath & Body Works Watermelon Lemonade Candle
It’s uncharacteristic for me because I usually don’t go crazy for artificial-watermelon scents. But this one hooked me!
If you’ve ever made (and more importantly, eaten!) yummy s’mores by the campside, you should already be salivating at the mere thought of this scented candle. (At least, this is what happened to me!)
I have been steering clear of Bath & Body Works for many months because my collection of 3-wick candles has grown to an embarrassingly large size. 😉
But one day, when I was browsing the stores with the guy I’ve been dating, we ended up ducking into that dangerous store of addictive aromas.
I made the mistake of smelling this Bath & Body Works Summertime S’mores Candle.
My guy also thought it was incredible, and well, to make a long story short, this candle (and another one) jumped into my hands and threatened to hold me hostage until I purchased it. (What choice did I have, right? Hehe!)
Also, when the cashier was ringing up my purchase, she noticed the freehand owl nail art I had on. Apparently she follows beauty blogs, so I told her about Swatch And Learn. She scribbled it down on a little piece of paper, and I wonder if she ever ended up visiting. 🙂
The True Blue Spa Blackberry Purifying Peel Off Face Mask from Bath & Body Works is the very first peel-off mask that I’ve ever tried.
I’ve had this since last year, and I hauled it when I was placing a huge online order of candles. (Haha, I haven’t bought anything from Bath & Body Works since because I’m trying to use up the huge collection I’ve amassed!)
Since it was on sale, I added this blackberry peel-off mask to my cart.
I’ve used it a few times since purchasing it, and, hehe, I’ve also used it on the guy I’m dating. We both really loved it!
It should come as no surprise that I’m a huge fan of anything with pumpkin in it.
Even though we’re approaching spring, part of me longs for autumn to come around first. 😉
Wow, it has been quite a while since my last scented-candle review, hasn’t it? (But, hey, go check it out…haha, it was for another pumpkin scented candle! :D)
Today I’m excited to share the Slatkin & Co. Pumpkin Carving Candle with you. And I wouldn’t have it in my possession if not for Frosso, a generous and thoughtful reader who also is the blogger of Lacquer Me Silly. (Thank you soooooooooooo much!)
I’ve always heard good things about the True Blue Spa products from Bath & Body Works, but it was only until very recently that I tried my first one.
Since my hands have been pretty dry with extra-frequent washing, I decided to put this cream to the test: True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream Lay It On Thick Fragrance Free! (Wowzers, that was long!)
So, I’m not usually diligent about applying hand cream after every single instance I wash my hands. More often than not, I find myself applying cream when I notice that my hands are dry. (Yeah, not the best strategy.)
It also doesn’t help that sadly, I’m still feeling under the weather. (When I’m sick, I tend to wash my hands and use sanitizer a lot more because I don’t want to spread my misfortune.) I made some improvement and thought I was getting better, but then the really cold weather made it harder to recuperate. This is officially the worst illness I’ve had in a long time, and I’m so ready for it to leave me alone!
Whoa – it’s been quite some time since I reviewed a scented candle on here!
The most recent one I’ve been burning is the Bath & Body Works Merry Cookie Candle, which (obviously) came out around Christmas.
Although it’s harder to find now, you can still spot a few on clearance.
The packaging is cutesy, and the scent will have you drooling like one of one of Pavlov’s dogs!
This review on the Slatkin & Co. Pumpkin Cupcake Candle from Bath & Body Works was a long time coming.
You see, before it was even released in stores, I ordered it from the website when I found an amazing 30% off coupon code that could be used on top of the 2 for $20 USD 3-wick candle sale, and the Canadian dollar was strong.
I waited. I waited and waited. And then I waited some more. Finally, I decided to inquire about why it was taking so long for my package to arrive in Canada.
Turns out, my order arrived damaged at Purolator, so Purolator sent it back to Bath & Body Works in the States. I contacted Bath & Body Works, and they said that I’d need to re-order it. They have good customer service and said they’d honour the sale prices (but not the 30% coupon code). They also offered to give me complimentary shipping.
I took all this as a sign that I was supposed to save my money. So I didn’t re-order it. Instead, I thought that I’d just pick up the candle in-store.
Well, I stalked Bath & Body Works for weeks, and they didn’t get the Pumpkin Cupcake candle for the longest time. Then…I got very busy and didn’t check. It was only very recently when I went back. And…the salesperson said they were all out of them a long time ago. Seeing my extreme disappointment, she offered to check the back ‘just in case’.
She found the very last one! And guess what? Apparently on her way back to me, there was a guy who was asking for the Pumpkin Cupcake candle…Haha, but too bad for him because that last one went into my greedy little mitts! *Squeals*
