What I bought at Bath & Body Works

Ok, i'm home from Florida. It was simply amazing in every possible way and I can't even begin to tell you how magical Disney World was with kiddo. I have so many photographs to sort through and ideas for blog posts, I don't actually know where to start. 

So let's start with a little haul. 

A Bath & Body Works haul to be precise!

Now, I didn't go crazy with shopping whilst we were away because I just don't do "buying stuff" anymore. And we didn't spend more than a day or two away from Disney so we didn't get to many non-Disney shops. But on one of our days off we made a special trip to Orlando International Premium Outlets with the sole intention of visiting Bath & Body Works.

There are quite a few brands in the USA that are not readily available to us folk in the UK and Bath & Body Works are one of them. I have seen so many bloggers rave about their products over the past couple of years so I couldn't wait to see what all the fuss about!

Lets get straight into it. Here's what I bought on my first trip to Bath & Body works....

First up, I bought six of the hand soaps. I didn't have any intention of buying anything other than candles when I visited but I spied these and fell for the gorgeous packaging and delicious sounding scents. I love a good hand soap and always like to have a stash of them at home so these were welcome additions to my basket! 

I went for the festive bottles because well; cute names, cute packaging, plenty of glitter and..... yep, incredible scents! These hand soaps are so gentle and foam up so well. Kiddo loves washing her hands with these and my goodness, they leave your hands feeling refreshed and smelling so good! Hands down one of the best hand soaps I've ever tried.... i'll definitely be getting more of these when I run out.     

Next up, I bought a few of the travel sized products. I love stocking up on smaller sized body lotions and shower gels ready for holidays and these are just perfect. They had an offer which was something like three travel sized products for $12.50 so I popped six of them into my basket.

The body lotions are wonderful. Once again, the scents are incredible and they sink into skin beautifully leaving it soft and not at all greasy. A little goes a long way with these and I very much doubt that these little products will make it to our next holiday as i'll be using them up immediately! 

Finally, candles. My weakness. I really, really wanted to go nuts with these but alas, I chose three. Yep, three. I no longer have a candle cupboard at home and so i'd have nowhere to store them. Thoroughly regretting this decision now but hey, I can't do anything about it now haha!

I went thoroughly festive with my choices; "Winter", "Twisted Peppermint" and "Winter Rose". I'm not a fan of sweet scents, especially when it comes to Christmas so these are just perfect for me. Crisp, fresh and absolutely delicious. The pine needles and clementine in the Winter candle are so sharp and spot on yet satisfyingly cosy. Perfection. Also, I like the 3 wick design..... they burn so cleanly! 

The silver lids are also gorgeous, they look super neat when they are not being used. And I guess the flat lids mean they can be stacked too.... unlike Yankee Candles. Room to store more, eh?! 

Ahh, Winter Rose. I can't resist a rose scent and this one is just gorgeous, i'm yet to burn this one but if the other two are anything to go by then it will be perfection! 

Are you a fan of Bath & Body Works? What are your favourite products and scents? Let me know in a comment below!


  1. Ooooh I just bought my sister a Winter Rose scented candle and it smells gorgeous! I totally would have gone with festive picks too. I'm a little envious of your haul to say the least. I SO wish we had a Bath and Body Works in the UK

    Steph -

  2. Oh my goodness! I want it ALL! But those candles, so gorgeous xxx

  3. I'm so jealous - Florida and B&BW! Love them both. Love the scent of everything from B&BW, it all smells so good x

  4. I'm so jealous but I'm off to Florida next year so will have to get some stuff. Love the packaging of it all x

  5. I am SO jealous of your haul (and the fact you've been to Florida obviously!). I've been twice before as a kid, but never as an adult and am desperate to go back. Those candles look amazing! xx

  6. Oh my goodness, I want it all! I'm glad you had a lovely time in Florida x

  7. The candles look amazing- the scents sound incredible!

  8. I habe actually never heard of them but I like the look of that frosted coconut snowball.

  9. What a great haul! I was so restrained when I was in Vegas and only picked up four candles, and they were in the smaller size. The quality is so good and one of the few candle brands that I can smell long after I've blown out the flame.

  10. Queen size comforter sets incorporate a queen comforter and queen size bedding. Maybe you wish to select some pretty floral styles or you may want to create a luxurious look with some more exotic fabrics or choose a terrific modern look with some remarkable patterns or snazzy stripes.
