My Beauty and Home Fragrance Essentials: Bath & Body Works



Let me let you in on a little secret about my blogging rituals (as I like to call them); every night when I’m working on my laptop from home, and the comfort of my own bed – well mainly because I don’t have enough space for a desk in my studio apartment – I play a CD of chill-out or jazz tunes and light up a scented candle.

Not any scented candle though…I have developed a healthy type of obsession with Bath & Body Works collection of scented candles. My obsession started when a friend of mine presented me with their anti-stress stress relief scented candle as a birthday gift on my birthday. Yes, she’s a very caring and loving friend who thought that I could use some stress-relieving candles to combat my chronic stress that she could obviously sense every time we met πŸ˜€

Honestly, I’m very thankful for that friend for introducing me to the Bath & Body Works home fragrance collection. As I’ve been a big fan of their scented candles collection since that birthday present. My favorite scent is the Pineapple Mango (pictured above); it has a very sweet and fruity scent to it that is so strong and energizing.

You don’t want to miss out on the “Buy one get one free” promotions that the store has on its home fragrance range. That’s the time when you would see me at the store with a basket full of scented candles of all size and type. I tell you, they are highly addictive πŸ™‚

Another product range from the beauty-lovers’ dream store that I’m a big fan of is their True Blue Spa range. I think the first product that I tried from that range was a body butter or lotion, before being hooked on their Callus Treatment tough love foot cream. It’s the most intensive yet light foot cream that you will ever come across. The foot scrub from the same collection is also great and effective. So is the hand lotion.

The good news is that Bath & Body Works Middle East have just introduced the True Blue Spa Shower Smoothies and Body Bars Collection. The smoothies come in a number of exotic fragrances in a rich formula with a blend of moisturizing yogurt and vitamins. Since the Smoothies come in the form of a creamy cleanser, you can expect your skin to be gently cleansed and hydrated at the same time. The Body Bars also come in various scents and help nourish and replenish your skin. Which means that you will enjoy a healthy, hydrated and refreshing shower experience!

The 10 oz Shower Smoothie is priced at AED 80, while the 7 oz Body Bar is sold at AED 40.

I personally can’t wait to try this new collection from the wonderful and rich True Blue Spa range.Β  You’ll most likely see me in a Bath & Body Works store with a basket full of goodies…especially when there are promotional offers being held, which is a regular thing with this fresh American brand. In the Middle East, they always run weekend offers which goes on from Tuesday to Saturday, in addition to their weekly offers. Β In Dubai, there are five store namely in Deira City Centre, Mall of the Emirates, Mirdif City Centre, Dubai Mall & Ibn Battuta.

In the end, I must admit that the sweet and relaxing scent from this brand’s scented candles collection has greatly contributed to my well-being and calmness. I don’t think I would have the patience and peacefulness that is essential for sitting down to write a blog post if it weren’t for Bath & Body Works’ wonderful collection of relaxing and invigorating scented candles πŸ™‚
