Oh, What You Can Buy for $50!

Yesterday I went to Bath & Body Works to use a gift card that my brother and niece oh so graciously gave me for Christmas. Let me tell you, using it during the semi-annual sale was such a great idea! I bought eight (yes, 8!) items for a grand total of $51.11 including tax. Unfortunately the website does not have most of the deals I found in the store, so you may want to try there first before the sale ends. Here are some of my new goodies:

Wallflowers - 2 packs for $5 each
I bought both Blackberry and Tropical Passionfruit - mmmm!

Tutti Dolci Fantasia di Cioccolata Lip Gloss - $2.50

It looks like Bath and Body Works is getting rid of this line - I couldn't even find the brand on their website. I love this gloss though! The one I purchased is a metallic mulberry color, though it goes on sheer. AND, it tastes good too!

Can you believe it was just a buck? It was $4 marked down 75%.

I have been looking for a good moisturizer, especially with the dry cold air here in Chicago. So far, so good. I have sensitive skin and it seems gentle enough though it may not be moisturizing enough to battle my dry skin from this weather. It probably will work much better in the spring. By the way, this is normally $20 but I got it for 50% off!

True Blue Spa Lay It On Thick Shea Butter Moisturizer - Large tube for $20, small tube for $1.50

I did splurge on this one. I have very dry skin and Lay It On Thick is by far the BEST body moisturizer I have ever used. They used to only have the 6 oz tube as shown, but when I saw the large 10 oz tube, I had to buy it, despite it being full price. To make things even sweeter, I lucked out and saw a 2 oz in the 75% off bin and grabbed the last one for just $1.50!
Last, but not least...a sneak peak of a new product launching in the spring - Ile de Tahiti Inu Body Lotion with Tamanoi (they don't even have it on their site yet). I purchased a 1.7 oz bottle for $2. It says it has the "world's richest blend of hydration and healing." The jury is still out on that claim, but it does smell light and tropical!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. You really did inspire me. I am now realizing how addictive blogging can be. I didn't think anyone was going to read it, let alone comment...thanks so much. It really meant a lot.
