Bath and Body Works Haul

I love delicious scented candles and body care products and bath and body works just speaks to my soul. I never come away emptied handed, and for good reason! Now if you’re sat there thinking, hold on a second, you can’t get B&BW products in the UK. Well, actually you can!!! If you already know this, kudos! A site called Bath and Body Shop stock a really good selection of B&BW, click here for their site. You’re welcome ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, of course I’ve got a whole bunch of candles to talk about, mainly with a seasonal Autumn theme. I don’t know how they do it but their candles are some of the best I’ve ever bought, the scents are so alike the label its crazy to me. Seriously, if I closed my eyes and smell the candle I’d never know it was a candle and not a marshmallow pumpkin latte under my nose! They fill the house with glorious scents days after burning too, again, I have no idea how they manage it! Its like wax magic!

I couldn’t decide which ones to get so I ended up getting 6! All as good as the last! My chosen 6 along with the fragrance notes are:

  • Pumpkin Pecan Waffles – Maple syrup, golden waffles, pumpkin spice and brown sugar.
  • Marshmallow Fireside – Toasted marshmallow, smouldering woods, fire roasted vanilla and crystallised amber.
  • Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow – Creamy vanilla, pumpkin spice, homemade marshmallow and drizzled caramel.
  • Caramel Pumpkin Swirl – Fresh pumpkin, warm caramel, grated cinnamon and vanilla bean.
  • Leaves – Crisp red apple, golden nectar and warm clove spice.
  • Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte – Pumpkin latte, toasted marshmallow, creamy sandalwood, white ginger and praline musk.

Now that I am all candle’d out I turn my attention to the never-ending range of body care products. I could have went mad buying all sorts of good stuff but I had to be mindful of my baggage allowance *sigh*. This in mind, it saddens me to tell you I only picked up three body lotions, three pocket bac antibacterial hand sanitisers and one hand cream. Not to worry, my other half works in America and he doesn’t know it yet, but he will be bringing a little stock pile back over next month *muhahahahah*.

One thing I should point out about myself is that I am one of those germaphobe people who never touches public door handles with my bare hands or refuel my car without a plastic glove on! Yes I know, a bit extreme but honestly, those things are FILTHY! I never go anywhere without a hand sanitiser in my bag, but they all tend to have a very strong antibacterial smell about them. That is until I discovered the range from B&BW. So I grabbed three, Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte, Coconut Pumpkin Latte and Pumpkin Cranberry Cider. For my hand cream I went for Golden Autumn Day – A sun soaked blend of sunny mandarin, autumn leaves and blonde woods. My hands smell like a treat with this!

Last but most definitely not least, the yummy body lotions I snapped up are:

  • Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte – Pumpkin latte, toasted marshmallow, creamy sandalwood, white ginger and praline musk.
  • Vanilla Bean Noel – Fresh vanilla bean, warm caramel, sugar cookies, whipped cream and snow kissed musk. (Anyone else getting hungry reading these descriptions?!)
  • Winter Candy Apple – Red apple, winter rose petals, candied  orange, maple leaf and fresh cinnamon.

They smell delightful and the scent on the skin seems to last for hours. The absorb really quickly and are none greasy which is a huge plus for me. Nothing worse than standing about starkers with your skin too tacky to clothe!
