Another Haul: BBW, Victoria's Secret! Halloween Preview?

Hey everybody!

I managed to snag some more BBW goodies today! Everything was from the back! Thanks again to the wonderful SA, Danielle, who always hooks me up and is so sweet! :) I received in the mail today the Victoria's Secret Sugared Florals Collection along with some Sweet Pout Lipglosses. I purchased a VS PINK 2 in 1 Shower & Shave but it was broken in shipping so I'm waiting on another one of those.

The SA at BBW confirmed Monday is supposed to be a Halloween Preview. She told me to check back on Monday between 3:30 - 4:00 because she hadn't received everything that was supposed to be out for the Halloween Preview and this is typically when they get shipments in. Apparently, this will be set up at the front counter where you check out so don't forget to look! I will be checking in on Monday for more Halloween goodies and for more Made in America soaps that I'm wanting.

Now, onto the VS part of the haul. The Sugared Florals Collection. 1) I'm not that impressed. 2) This collection doesn't beat out any of the collections VS has put out all year. 3) Sugared Lilac is my favorite out of the 3. The collection is just "OK" to me. Nothing special, nothing spectacular, and definitely not amazing. All 3 are more sweet than floral hence, "Sugared Florals." However, I think this collection is an easy pass. The lip glosses, I like. I'm a sucker for lip glosses. Creme Brulee is my favorite color but my least favorite scent out of the 4. It smells like burnt plastic. It's an easy pass but the other 3 are nice and there are more flavors than the 4 that I purchased.

I'm not going to type out all I bought today from BBW because you can obviously see for yourself via the pictures but my stand out product today is Vermont Sugar Maple! Oh my goodness! This hand cream smells amazing! Can't wait to be able to get it in a soap! It smells like sugar cookies to me... Mmm yummy! Of course, you can always click on the photos to view them larger. :)

  2. I love your blog! I work for BBW and I love seeing your reviews on all the new stuff. The Heirloom Cranberry is my absolute fave from the new fresh picked! I can't stand the Honeycrisp Apple. Did you like it?

    1. Thank you so much! Very appreciated! :) I'm loving the Cranberry as well ... It's amazing! The Honeycrisp Apple is just ok to me. Nothing spectacular. I was expecting something more with the Honeycrisp in the title but it doesn't differ too much from any of the other apple scents in my opinion. However, I'll use what I bought. :) Really loving Scarlet Pumpkin too!

  3. I haven't tried scarlet pumpkin yet but I am sure I'll smell it tonight. We set our walls early so all of our fresh picked goodies were out. I just couldn't get over the cranberry. It reminds me of a winter/christmas scent. My favorite!

  4. I was in the VS store yesterday and sniffed the Sugared Florals. They're good to okay. I'm thinking about them before I decide to purchase or not. I'm waiting until they have a free Victoria perfume sample in a little while in my city's stores. If they have Sugared Florals left then, I may get them.

    1. Hey Iris! The Sugared Florals Collection smells good to me, just nothing spectacular. Sugared Lilac is my favorite one. I don't think I'll be purchasing anymore of this collection because it's an easy pass I think. Previous collections, like the Beach Dreams Collection, is much better in my opinion with more unique scents. :) I was kinda disappointed because VS has done so well with their Collections this year and I just thought this one was lackluster.
