Who has a lot of Bath & Body Works? *Sheepishly Raises Hand

Oh man, oh man, oh man! Since I decided to reformat my YouTube Channel to all demos (shameless plug — you can subscribe here) I decided to organize, declutter and reexamine my Bath & Body Works collection. Marie Kondo seriously needs to kick my ass.

Let’s just say I’m pretty much stocked up in the bath and the body department until about 2073 — of course I’ll turn 103 that year and might need all of those moisturizing products a bit more. Either that or they’ll invent a real working time turner in the next few years and I can just turn back time (now I’ve got Cher in my head) and use up all of this stuff! I wonder if Cher shops at Bath & Body Works. I bet she does.

What the what!!!!!!

So how on earth did I acquire over 300 Bath & Body Works product? Yes, 300! It’s actually easier than one might think. Most Bath & Body Works stores are located in the mall and they have really pretty eye catching displays to draw you in — AND the place smells amazing — AND I’m like a bird with a new shiny thing when it comes to Bath & Body Works.

Hypothetical story time — No, this isn’t me (yeah right)!

So there you are (coupons in hand) drooling like a loon over the latest fruity fragrance that you just can’t live without, then your mom says…oooo, this one smells good too and into the blue mesh bag it goes (and you often wonder if those blue mesh bags ever get washed), of course you really don’t care at this point. An ostrich could have popped in that blue mesh bag and you’d still use it! At this point you’re grabbing Ultra Shea Cream like it’s the last loaf of bread on the shelf in a hurricane. Then by the time you reach the back of the store (they always put the check-out in back) your blue mesh bag weighs like 600 pounds and you just know you’re going to need a chiropractic adjustment when this day is over but you hoist that bag up, fork over your cash and leave with a big dorky smile on your face.

So let’s just say my collection has bloomed and blossomed and over run my house like weeds over the years and I ended up cramming it into every crevice of my house, but I’m cured now, kind of, OK, not really. I’m still going to Bath & Body Works but I’m going to leave without over filling that blue mesh bag….yes, that’s the plan.

Of course it doesn’t help that they get new must-have products every single season and you can bet I’m there loading up on new scents. Tutti Dolce? Hot Cocoa & Cream? Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice? Admit it, every single one of you buys a new Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice every single year because of all that pretty packaging!!!! Well played Bath & Body Works, well played.

If you want to oooo and ahhhh and spy on my outrageous collection (you know you want to) check it out on YouTube and wish me luck! From now on I am ONLY getting a few things to demo on YouTube. No more huge collections. I swear on Marie Kondo’s tiny container collection. For real. Really. NO REALLY!

Bath & Body Works CocoShea Honey Shower Jelly Review

The Bath & Body Works CocoShea Honey Shower Jelly has been a favorite of mine since I discovered it a few years ago. I pick one up every once in a while because it does wonders on dry Winter skin. It has vitamin-packed cocoa butter and rich, moisturizing shea butter.

What’s to love?

This CocoShea Shower Jelly is pretty thick and I am easily able to grab scoop on my bath pouf. The lather is amazing and so soft and the scent is out of this world. It has a very distinctive honey scent that lingers after a bath of shower. It’s also pretty fun to play with!

The price is $16.50 but I got this one on sale as the CocoShea products were 2 for $20 this week and I had a 20% off coupon which brought the price down to $8 so it pays to wait for a sale or coupon.

The NEW Bath & Body Works GIANT Eiffel Tower Pocketbac Holder is AMAZING!

I am loving the new Bath & Body Works GIANT Eiffel Tower Pocketbac Holder that I picked up in my store. This 5 + inch Pocketbac holder is perfect for your desk. You can keep your hands germ-free at home or at work and it lights up!

I picked the French Lavender Pocketbac for my Eiffel Tower and it smells amazing! So much fun to add a little ooh la la to my desk this Spring!

Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Picking Review

One of my favorite scents from the Fall 2018 Bath & Body Works line is Pumpkin Picking (although for some reason I keep reading it Pumpkin Pickling)!

The notes include Cinnamon-Spiced Cider, Fresh Pumpkin Pie and Hayrides to the Patch. To me Pumpkin Picking is the perfect mix of spicy and sweet with less cinnamon than Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. I swear I also pick up a hit of marshmallow in this one. I’m starting to like it more than Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin this year!

Pumpkin Picking comes in:

  • Ultra Shea Body Cream
  • Fine Fragrance Mix
  • Shower Gel

I also love the simple orange design with the gold and bronze accents. Very classy and pretty for Fall.

Bath & Body Works Fall Foaming Hand Sanitizer Review

Last year Bath & Body Works came out with the Foaming Hand Sanitizer and I love them! I prefer the foam over the Pocket-Bac Gel. I find the foam to be much more moisturizing on my hands and I love the scents!

I picked up the following Fall and Halloween Foaming Hand Sanitizer scents:

  • Pumpkin Cupcake (baked pumpkin, whipped vanilla frosting & golden honey)
  • Afternoon Apple Picking (crisp apple, succulent pear & cinnamon)
  • Purrfect Pumpkin (Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin)
  • Vampire Blood (red berries, night blooming jasmine & petrifying plum)

The Fall & Halloween Foaming Hand Sanitizers also come in:

  • Crisp Morning Air (fresh pine, juniper & juicy pear)
  • Ghoul Friend (dark strawberries, ghostly peony & spine chilling citrus)

Here is what the foam looks like! It’s super smooth and creamy! A small dab is all you need. I always keep one in my purse and they last about 2 weeks with 3 people using it almost every day.
