Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Haul (Jan 2011)

So Bath & Body Works recently had their “Semi-Annual” sale from Dec 26-Jan 17th. They had some really sweet deals during this sale from BUY 2 get 2, 50% off and 75% off seasonal items. I did not purchase all these items at once but rather 3-4 trips where I snagged a bit of this and that.

I spent a total of $11.08 dollars
Retail: $76 dollars
*I was able to get travel size items for free because they had a coupon for “free travel size” with any purchase
*I had a in-store coupon for 20% off that I received from a previous purchase

Haul:
14 hand sanitizer: sea island cotton, fresh lime basil, santa’s mellow mint, nectarine mint, vanilla bean Noel
3 travel size lotions: white citrus, summer vanilla berry, orange sapphire
2 travel size sprays: twilight woods
2 full size pump hand soaps: vanilla bean Noel, winter candy apple
1 full size lotion: winter candy apple
1 4oz Slatkin & co candle: mint chocolate chip

Seasonal Merchandise
I picked up these on the last day of the sale so they were 75% off. I suppose I was lucky because I found out I adore Winter Candy Apple and I was able to snag the last one. This is my first time purchasing their pump hand soaps, they are super handy to use and they were only $1 each. M had said previously that he really liked the mint chocolate candle so I picked that up for him. When you smell the candle it smells strong and exactly like mint chocolate. However, I was pleasantly surprised when we used it that I did not feel it was overpowering. I rather like it.

Pocketbac Hand sanitizer ($0.37 each)
These normally retail for $1.50 or $1 if you buy 5. I love these! I used them religiously while I was working abroad in China. They are the best that I’ve used. I think they smell great, tons to choose from, portable and cute! I was also able to snag some orange sapphire though not in the picture. So I was thrilled about this sale because these are going to my cousin in China. It’s sort of silly but my cousin in China thinks these are the neatest things because they don’t sell them there. Anyways, I basically got 3 each scent. My favorite other than the orange sapphire would have to be the fresh lime basil.
** My B&BW at UTC mall still has some of these on sale for 75% as of 1/22/11!
Signature Travel Size Items
I was able to snag these babies for free with this coupon here (expires 1/26)
*Coupon is for only the signature travel size item and it’s FREE with any purchase
*You can also receive this coupon if you sign up for B&BW alerts on their website
*One per person per visit (as said before this is my collective haul 3-4 trips)
*B&BW usually offers this coupon every month, just google for it, if you need one

Basically I just choose to stock up on my favorite scents. I adore citrus smells so I got white citrus and orange sapphire. Since buying the body butter in Twilight woods I found myself really loving the scent so I picked up some sprays. However I wish B&BW would re-do their spray packaging because I feel it looks cheap but the scent is still amazing. Lastly, I found summer vanilla in berry which I couldn’t find for a long time. These are great not only for traveling but carrying in your purse, trying out a new scent or giving as gifts.

Whew that was a long haul!
If you missed out on Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual sale their next one is in June. I’m already psyched for it!
