Bath & Body Works Haul + Pics + Video!

Hey everybody!

I just got back from Bath & Body Works like an hour ago. I have done filmed my haul video, which is below, along with pictures and new bottle designs included! ;) I'm really loving the new bottle designs. I think it adds a nice modern flair! Plus, my manager told me that because of the new design, the shower gel bottle now holds 10% more shea. I believe 10% is what she told me but I can't remember exactly. I don't know if that stands true for the lotions to but she only mentioned the shower gels. She also said she was told that not all fragrances would come out in these new bottle designs so I guess we will see on that. I was hoping to find some PocketBacs in the pumpkin scents so if any of your all's stores have them and you don't mind sharing, please let me know because I'd love to order some. :)

I also noticed the shower gels and body lotions now say $12.50 instead of $11.00 ... so I guess we are going to be paying $12.50 now for the new bottle designs.

Anyways, here are the things I picked up!

    • 1X Strawberry Banana Shower Smoothie

    Pineapple Papaya is A W E S O M E! It smells exactly like Pineapple and I love it! Pineapple fans ... pick this bad boy up! You won't be disappointed! Strawberry Banana is also a great scent! It smells more of Strawberry than Banana though. I was hoping for a more Banana kick but oh well it's still lovely. I smelled Blueberry Vanilla in-store and didn't care for it. Honeydew Kiwi, I also wasn't a fan of it. Pineapple Papaya is by far the standout in this group of scents! These were $10 a piece in my store.

    The Tropical room sprays were on sale for $3.00 at my store. Those include Tropical Spice, Coconut Lime Verbena, Seaside Escape, Passionflower, and Caribbean Salsa.

    The ScentPortable was $5.00. They had other ones which were cuter but I think they are too pricey for what they are. I saw a hot pink skull and another cute purse but like I said, I don't think they are worth the money so I'm sticking to the plastic ones.

    I was excited to find a Cucumber Melon 2-pack Wallflower refills. I definitely wasn't expecting that! Excited to try them out because I do like the body care.

    The Flower Shop candle, in my opinion, reminds me of First Bloom. I liked the packaging though and it was 50% off so I grabbed one!

    I noticed my store still had 75% off items. I saw a lot of Midnight Pomegranate @ 75% off so if you love that one, get to your store and grab you some! Can't go wrong with stocking up at that price!

    Next Buy 3 Get 3 Free I know I'm stocking up on Coconut Water Chill! I absolutely adore that scent so much! I wish I could have found the pumpkin PocketBacs but overall I think I made out good today. :) I did 3 separate transactions with my survey coupons. Don't leave your house without them!


  1. Ohh, so that's why the free item limit with $10 purchase is $12.50 now. I was wondering if it was that way because they were planning to clear out the old bottles and let us get TMCs instead. I wonder if that means the TMC will go up too. :\

    1. I bet the TMC's will go up too! Because I highly doubt they will sell them for the same price as the shower gels and lotions. Bummer! :/

  2. I saw the book with pictures of all of the new bottles and label designs. It looked like all of the signature collection was included in there even the newest Pure Paradise. Maybe if they are just seasonal scents, then they won't come in the new bottles. Who knows? I just know what I saw. I like the new bottles and labels. Not sure that I like the new price though, but buying during B3G3 won't be bad. Thanks for sharing your haul/video with us.

    1. Thanks for sharing! :) I also like the bottles and labels. The Paris Amour packaging has definitely been my favorite so far that I've seen. I think it makes sense to change the entire Signature Collection into the new bottles. I think it gives a new, fresh modern vibe but the price jump is a bummer lol. But then if the seasonal/limited edition scents come in the old bottles, with the old price, that would be nice like you said. I guess we will have to wait and see! :) You're right, with B3G3 .. the price isn't bad plus when you top it off with a 20% off coupon or a survey ... even better. I guess if I like the new bottles and I do then I shouldn't complain too much about the price lol. :D

  3. I like the new bottles. They're cute. I hope the Summer Twists are still on sale when I get there on the weekend. I'm planning to pick those up along with Summer Chill lotions and use a survey coupon.

    1. Iris! You are good to go! The Summer Twist Collection stays $5 until August 4th or at least that is what my email says. I wish the Summer Chill Collection was $5 too because I'm in love with Coconut Water Chill! :D

    2. Thank you! The Canadian email says "While Supplies Last" and "May Change Without Notice". If it's going on until August in the States, it's likely around the same here. :)

  4. Nice choices on what your purchased,enjoyed the video keep up the good work. The Body Care packaging looks really nice, I really wish they'd do that for the Men's Collection as well. Definetly looking forward to that post on the Fall Candles and the Fall Candle Haul Video. I placed an order on 7/6 and it's coming 7/9 I ordered a Tropical Spice 3 Wick Candle,London Calling 3 Wick Candle,Tropical Spice Room Spray and the Summer Twist PB's. I already know which Fall Candles I want to purchase: Blueberry Pumpkin Patch,Pumpkin Caramel Latte,Pumpkin Cup Cake,Black Berry Spice,Harvest Coffee,and Cider Doughnut.(and a few minis.) Weird that your store didn't recieve those Pumpkin Soaps/PB's as I thought they were suppose to hit stores today?!

    1. I went back a 2nd time today and managed to snag 3 of the new PocketBacs - New post about those up now! I ordered the rest from a different store over the phone lol. Thank you for all the kind words!
