Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale 2020 – Tips & News!

It’s time for the Summer Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale and while this year might be a bit different I’m excited to see what they have to offer. The Bath & Body Works June Semi-Annual Sale starts June 8th both in-store (where open) and online.

This year the red bins won’t be on the floor but we should see the 50% off and 75% off signs. I am really hoping that the Bake Shop collection from February is part of SAS as I need to stock up on Strawberry Pound Cake.

Bath & Body Works will also be limiting the number of people that can be in a store at one time so my advice is to shop on off hours to avoid crowds. That’s what I plan on doing.

Bath & Body Works also has some exciting new collections including Boardwalk Taffy and the new fruit line that includes Pink Watermelon, Sun-Washed Citrus, Pretty as a Peach and Raspberry Tangerine. I heard there are scrubs with this collection too.

When you walk into a store you’ll get a paper bag to place your products in and there are arrows on the floor to control traffic flow. Bath & Body Works is also not accepting cash or doing returns right now.

I’m excited to see what other surprises might show up at SAS! It’s always a fun time and this year should be no different.

Bath & Body Works, PINK & Avon Hand Sanitizer Comparison & Review!

I am using more hand sanitizer than ever now and I wanted to review a few of my favorites from Bath & Body Works, PINK & Avon.

Avon Senses Silky Vanilla Antibacterial Hand Gel – This gel formula from Avon smells amazing and leaves my hands soft. I like the easy-to-squeeze bottle and the cost at $3.99 for 2.5 oz. Buy from Avon at:

Bath & Body Works PocketBacs and Spray – I am a huge fan of the Bath & Body Works PocketBacs (price $1.95 or 5 for $8) because they have the strongest scent but the bottle is a bit hard to squeeze. Right now I am a bigger fan of the spray bottles which are $5.50 for 1.8 oz and $6.50 for 3 oz.

PINK Hand Sanitizer Spray – These 3 oz hand sprays are 3 for $12 and contain 80% alcohol however they are unscented. I prefer having a scent so I uses these on solid surfaces.

I also love this Avon Beauty Caddy to store my hand sanitizers, masks and wipes.

Bath & Body Works NEW Brownie Batter Swirl Candle Review

The Bath & Body Works Brownie Batter Swirl Candle is part of the new foodie collection that sold out almost instantly. However be sure to check the Bath & Body Works site early in the morning as they have been restocking.

The scent notes on Brownie Batter Swirl are Brownie Batter, Chocolate Chunks, Powered Sugar and Vanilla!

This candle smells amazing — like milk chocolate with a touch of vanilla and while it’s not super strong it did fill my large room with a delicious chocolatey bakery scent. The burn was clean and while I would have like a more decorative jar this white matte design with an ombre label is pretty.

Check out my review the the Bath & Body Works Brownie Batter Swirl Candle on YouTube!

My Go-To Quarantine Hair Care Products – Bath & Body Works, Lush, Avon, Aveda & More!

Being home I have a ton of time to care for my hair and actually my hair care routine hasn’t changed much since my pre-quarantine days! I never really liked the beauty salon — I’m more of a do-it-yourself girl. My hair is extremely thick and wild which makes it hard to get a good cut so I just do it myself.

Here’s me in the 10th grade and from last year! I had huge hair in the 80’s and it was usually feathered and sprayed. A stiff wind couldn’t blow my style away!

My natural hair color is a dark blonde so I usually lighten it with the L’Oréal Age Perfect by Excellence hair dye in shade 8N Medium Natural Blonde or 9N Light Natural Blonde. It’s a bit darker when I first dye it but lightens over time.

Here my are go-to quarantine hair care products!

From Lush – I have been using the Lush Shampoo Bars now for over 4 years now and I love them! These round disks provide a fragrant natural feeling lather. My favorite shampoo bars are Seanik (sea salt), Montalbano (lemon) and Jumping Juniper (lavender). I created a video review below too!

From Avon – Lately I’ve stopped using my flat-iron and I’m letting my wavy hair grow out. My go-to daily conditioner is now the Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner. This conditioner is amazing and reduces my daily frizz without weighing my hair down. It reminds me more of a cream rinse than a conditioner!

I also use the Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo which has a nice light floral scent and leave me hair super clean and fresh. I use this shampoo about 2-3 times per week.

I’ve also been using the Avon Elastine PropoliThera Repair Conditioner which has been giving my hair an amazing shine! It has honey, royal jelly and propolis. I am loving the octagon pump bottle too!

This Korean Beauty product is super powerful and a little goes a long way. However, it does have an extremely heavy floral scent that’s a bit too strong for me so I usually leave this one on for about 5 minutes rinse then follow up with the Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner to reduce the scent.

From Paul Mitchell – OMG the scent of this the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo is simply amazing and soooooo strong! I leaves my hair squeaky clean but I can’t use it everyday because it’s a bit harsh on colored hair.

From Aveda – I love the Aveda Damage Remedy that came in my FabFitFun Box. I use this treatment on my wet hair and it does a great job with overall hair repair. I also love the natural scent from Aveda products.

From South Mane – I am a huge fan of hair oil treatments and the South Mane Macadamia Oil Treatment is so nice! A tiny bit goes a long way and it leave my hair soft and shiny. It has no scent and includes natural UV protection!

From Bath & BodyWorks – Finally, I rely on Bath & Body Works for hair mists and masks and I am really hoping we get a new line for Summer 2020.

My past favorite hair mists which I still use are the At The Beach Sea Salt Mist and the Protective Hair Perfume with UV Absorbers + Aloe!

I am also a huge fan of the Bath & Body Works Hair Mask collection. I still have the Bamboo Strengthening, Shine Hibiscus and the Avocado Smoothing formulas and they give my hair a beautiful shine!

Below is my Bath & Body Works Hair Mask collection video review!

So as the stay-at-home orders drag on I think I’m going to try to grow out my hair a bit more and I’m also on the look out for new hair products so feel free to leave your favorites below!
