Bath & Body Works | New WATER Collection Additions | Cactus Water and Rose Water

It is no surprise to me in seeing these two new collections coming to the popular Water Collection.  With a majority of the collection leaving during this upcoming Semi Annual Sale, it makes room for more and what better replacements than the direction the store has been going in.

As far as I know, we should be seeing these during the sale, if not right afterward.  They will be at the regular 2/$20 pricing.

When I receive more information I will update this posting.

Bath & Body Works | Friday Morning Surprise New Candles Released | Online and in Select Stores - May 10, 2019

​For those who wake early every day...check their email for the days new Bath and Body Works sale happening in their area and jump onto the online site to see what is new before doing anything else...... you were some of the super surprised lovers of this brand who found a New Candle Collection was added without any warning.

I woke...grabbed my phone and....I couldn't read it. The progression of a 17 year battle with eye issues rearing its ugly head again. Thus ruining my shopping a great buy two get two free candle sale with some NEW CANDLES before many of them sold out!!!  I got to take a trip to see my specialist who gave me a great Pre-Mother's Day present...an injection into my left eye and a nice shiner.  I would have loved a Mermaid Candle Instead.  :)

So while I didn't get to order any online, I did get the photos of them and the scent notes to archive. I am also seeing some posts on social media of the actual candles that were being found in random test stores.
