Has anyone else been obsessed with Bath and Body Works since the dawn of time? Over the years, my preferences have definitely evolved from body sprays and hand lotions to candles and hand soaps, but the frenzie in which I enter the store each time has remained about the same.
Recently, I’ve been really into their hand soaps because nice hand soaps make me feel like a real live grown up. While I love all the various types, my preference definitely lays with the Creamy Luxe Hand Soap and the Gentle Exfoliating Hand Soap. Specifically the fall scents (yes, I know it’s March I don’t need your judgement) which I stock up on every year for special occasions such as this.
Our Creamy Luxe Hand Soap is formulated with vitamin E, shea extract & aloe to gently wash away dirt and germs while leaving hands feeling soft, smooth and lightly scented.
This bubbly hand soap with Vitamin E, Shea Extract & Aloe effectively cleanses using tiny exfoliating pearls to gently buff away dull skin leaving hands clean, conditioned & feeling soft.
These soaps, like everything else at Bath and Body Works are horribly overpriced. However, I’ve said this once and I’ll say it until the day I die, if you even think about setting foot inside this glorious establishment when there is no visible floor to ceiling “sale” signage, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG.
Bath and Body Works is one of those brands that marks everything up so that it can promote their incredible sales (see also, Kohls, JCPenney, Michaels, etc.). This is an impressive marketing tactic that works well, but those in the know can use it to our advantage.
Businesses run sales for two reasons. First, to clear inventory, and second, to boost sales. Having a sale for any length of time creates FOMO, or the Fear Of Missing Out, which is one of the most powerful marketing tactics out there.
If you’ve read my previous blog, you’ll know that I am not for buying products for the sole sake of a sale. That being said, sales are a great time to try new products or stock up on current favorites. This is especially true for pricier items like literally anything from Bath and Body Works or the illusive perfect brow products, for which you just never seem to have enough backups; but I digress.
These hand soaps are creamy and luxurious and don’t even get me started on the wide variety of scents. Sure, you can buy cheaper alternatives at Walmart of Home Goods, but it’s just not the same, man. Those other brands don’t even make you feel like a princess and I’m just not about that lifestyle at this point in my adult life.
So if you’re looking to step up your hand soap game, and therefore, your overall quality of life, I highly recommend trying out the Bath and Body Works hand soaps. You won’t be disappointed…unless you buy them at full price, in which case, I warned you.
