Yes! Yes! I am the bearer of good news today. WE CAN FINALLY FIND BATH & BODY WORKS PRODUCTS IN SOUTH AFRICA. With all the caps and bold lettering, you can probably tell that I am super excited to write this post. One of the most frequently asked questions, tweets, messages, emails and comments that I receive on my blog is “Have you found a retailer that stocks Bath & Body Works in South Africa yet?”. Now I can finally answer Y-E-S! To top it off it is accessible to everyone.I’ve done a few reviews on Bath & Body Works products before and of course not all of them are rave reviews due to personal preferences regarding scents but that definitely doesn’t reflect badly on the quality of B&BW products. I’ve been using this brand since way back in the day when I used a Blackberry to shoot my product shots on the blog so excuse some of the picture quality but definitely give my reviews a read so that you can start a wishlist at the end of this blogpost.
- Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods
- Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom
- Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar
- Bath & Body Works Dark Kiss Body Lotion + Japanese Cherry Blossom Perfume Mist
Today I thought I would do a first impressions post and then some time later do a full review with product shots showing how this duo of products works. So I’ve been using the shea vitamin E shower gel and the 24 hour moisture ultra shea body cream duo from the Country Apple range since last week and I have to say that I am smitten! It knocked firm favourite Japanese Cherry Blossom range to the second position and Warm Vanilla Sugar to position number three.Without giving too much away, it smells like heaven in a bottle and the scent it super long lasting. I have been practicing some restraint as I want this to be my spring/summer body pampering duo. In true Bath & Body Works fashion, it hydrates your skin perfectly and is such a perfect transition to help brighten and nourish the skin from cold winter months to warmer weather. I am pretty sure it’ll last me for the next three months before I purchase another duo that I have been eyeing.
Where to get Bath & Body Works in South Africa
Now let’s get to the part why most of you are actually here for. I stumbled upon a local online store that stocks B&BW products and that has quite a wide selection of goodies. Obviously I jumped out of my skin because it is an online store so all of us have access to it. As you know I was in Dubai last year and B&BW was one of the first stores that I popped into but sadly the prices were a bit out of my league so I ended up buying only a few things. I browsed Hey Pretty online store and noticed that the prices are even more affordable than what I paid in the B&BW store. To add to the good news, Hey Pretty also stocks all of those beloved brands that us South Africans wish were stocked in SA such as Colour Pop, Milani, BH Cosmetics, Elf, Morphe and EOS.
By now you probably have a wishlist brewing at the back of your brain and just to give you that extra little nudge … all the products are authentic so you can be 100% positive that you’re not putting fake products on your body. Now because the darlings over at Hey Pretty thought it was a good idea to encourage you even more… I have a discount code that will make you save some $$$$ on Bath & Body Works Products. When checking out use the code CITYGIRLVIBE and you will receive 15% off your B&BW purchases only. (Please note that is limited to one per customer but not limited to total B&BW items, the code is not valid for other brands and the code is valid till the 30th September). Perfect timing for your Christmas wishlist I’d say!
