I'm hella excited to share this blog post with you guys because I actually managed to get some Autumn Bath and Body Works bits??? I mean, I'm living my own dream here.
I won't lie, the transfer from screen to reality did not disappoint. The products are beautiful and smell amazing and oh my god WHEN will they bring BABW to the UK? I need it.
Let's start with what I'm most excited about: I now own my very own BABW candle. Leaves is a scent that I've heard so much about and I wish I could have tried out all the scents in person, but this one smells pretty darn good. It's a little less fresh and a little more spiced than I had anticipated, but this makes it feel extra cosy. It reminds me of a winter spice candle, as it smells like cloves and apples.
Last time I headed to the States (I say this as if it happens often - don't be fooled), I picked up their Lavender and Cedarwood shower gel, which soon became my fave shower gel ever. This time, I've got the same scent but in the form of their Sleep body cream: the dream. The relaxing-ness of Lavender fully works on me, and I can't wait to have a bath and rub this into my skin after.
As they don't do the Lavender and Cedarwood shower gel at the moment (RIP my heart), I went for a delightfully sickly sweet scent in their salted caramel apricot shower gel. Does that not just sound like the most beautiful scent ever? It's basically heaven in a bottle.
Hand soaps are up next. Maybe it's adulthood getting to me, but I think having a special hand soap makes your bathroom *that* bit nicer. Just me? Okay. In my last BABW haul, I chatted about how amazed I was by hand soap that foamed. And smelt amazing. So this time around I got three, obvs. Wild blackberries and basil is the first, and most Autumnal scent. I mean, can you imagine how much like Autumn cooking that's gonna smell?! I carried on with the fruity scents with Afternoon Apple Picking. This has apple, pear and cinnamon notes in, so I imagine it's going to smell a bit like an apple pie *drools*. Finally I picked up Crisp Morning Air because that's one of the best things about Autumn IMO. This is going to be a pretty fresh one with pine, juniper and pear in it. All three soaps contain honey to make them truly nourishing for your hands as the weather gets colder.
Last, let's chat pocket bacs. These little hand sanitizers have had my back since April, and I'm starting to run low. The packaging's hella cute, they're a perfect size to pop in a pocket, and they smell incredible. This time around I had to get some Autumnal ones, so we have pumpkin cupcake and marshmallow pumpkin latte. Honestly though, how good does the latter sound? Goodbye PSL, there's a new flavour in town ...
