Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale and GIVEAWAY!!!!

WE HAVE A WINNER ----- SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO FIND OUT IF IT IS YOU!

Hi friends,

I am so excited to be hosting my very first giveaway, this is to thank you all for your following and  support. I never thought when I launched this blog one year ago, and the YouTube channel this year that I would generate such an overwhelming response. Over 50,000 views and so many subscribers, I am truly blessed and it is time for me to give back!

Watch my video first:






Bath & Body works hosts a big sale twice per year. As a bit of a heads up, you will not find huge deals on the current signature collections such as my all times favorite: Pink Chiffon!

Instead, BBW will use the Semi-Annual Sale (SAS) to liquidate all its discontinued fragrances such as Juniper Breeze or White Tea and Ginger. These you can find on sale at 75% off. I did buy a few of them (they were $3 each) as body shower gels. 
There is also a 50% off sale on selected soaps such as the foam soaps and regular anti-bacterial soap. These are great to stock up. I did not find the Fresh Picked Collection to be on a big sale (4 for $15 or 6 for $24).
Other sales include the travel sizes at $3 for $10 which is one of their common discount anyway. They make great stocking stuffers.
Candles were $11 each, which is not the best deal they have offered in the past.

Here are a few words of advice if your are heading out to the SAS:

Shop online - Use the code BBWSALE20 (ends on 6/17) for a 20% discount.
If you are looking for the winter scents, not all stores have them, mine in NJ only had 75% off summer and spring scents. You may want to check out other stores, or check back with your regular store as they tend to rotate the displays and add new things as the sale goes on.

If you are looking to purchase the Signature Fragrances, I suggest you either use the coupon above online or wait for a few weeks for a better deal. They currently are on sale with a Buy 3 Get 2 Free deal. However, they routinely go on sale with a better deal (Buy 3 Get 3 Free) which is what I usually do.
This time around I did have two $10 off coupons and a 20% off coupon so I was able to purchase Signature Collections at the store and enjoy a better discount than what was offered.

Here are some of the things I purchased this time around (for more on my BBW Haul, check out my YouTube video).




White Tea and Ginger Shower gel - $3

I did buy quite a few Signature Collection items and picked these two scents to alternate with my Pink Chiffon:

Country Chic: a very sophisticated clean scent with sparkling Lemon, bright wildflowers and spring woods. I purchased the whole collection.

And Beautiful Day: A blend of sunkissed apples, dewy pear, lilly of the valley and pink peony. Definitely more cheery and fruity than Country Chic. This one would layer well with my Pink Chiffon. And again, because I used the SAS deal (buy 3 get 2 free) and my 20% off and $10 off coupons, I was able to purchase the entire collection at a great deal.

I like layering fragrances and the BBW collections are perfect for that. I usually start with a spritz then lotion then another spritz. Throughout the day I match my fragrance with the travel sizes and reapply as needed. The BBW body splashes are not perfumes, they are body splashes, therefore, they do not stay on all day, hence the need for a travel size. That said, they still smell wonderful and are great for those of you who do not want to wear overpowering scents on a daily basis. 

GIVEAWAY !!!!

I am giving away an entire Signature collection (all 4 products in full size) in Country Chic. I find fragrance to be very personal and was concerned that my own choice would not necessarily suit everyone. So out of all the Signature Collections I figured that Country Chic was the one that would win everyone's approval since it is neither too sweet and candy smelling nor too spicy. It is just the right blend.

This is what you could win:



Country Chic Body Lotion ($ 11)
Country Chic Shower Gel ($ 11)
Country Chic Body Cream ($12.50)
Country Chic Body Spray ($14)

The winner will get all four shipped via mail.
