Bath & Body Works | Today's Purchases - April 15, 2019

​Since I have been buying a little bit of new here and there until today's release, there isn't much left on my list for me to get so my purchase today was smaller.  I grabbed two of the wallflowers that are on sale for $3.50 each, and five of the new pocketbacs.  The clear plastic gift bag was also on my list of things to grab; a perfect add on for any Gingham gifting.

The Moisturizing Body Wash was free with the bounceback coupon ( who doesn't love something for free, right ) and isn't that a pretty great deal for that?

This store I visited was sold out of the Strawberry Pound Cake candle.  There were six in the store on Saturday and I thought, okay, I will grab them on Monday.  Nope.  #seeitloveitBuyIt

Bath & Body Works | Tropical Candle Collection - New, Non Wrap Around Labels

When the Tropical Candle Collection launched it came with a beautiful wrap around label and white wax.  Newer versions hitting stores and online are now just a front label and the colored wax showing through the glass.

I prefer the wrap around label version myself but the colored wax is pretty too. Some of the label change versions found in my store are below.
