Halloween at Bath and Body Works 2013 (UK)

Halloween at Bath and Body Works 2013

Before I lead anyone astray no Bath and Body Works have not announced plans to stock in the UK (I wish) but there is a few sites that you can purchase the odd BBW treat without it being to pricey.
I bought my Halloween/Autumnal hand gels from bathandbodyshop.co.uk which is reasonably priced, the only downside is that I found the p&p to be a little on the expensive and slow side but hey you can't have it all. Since I placed my order last week they have got in a few more Bath and Body Works PocketBac Hand Gels - namely two kiddie aimed Halloween versions.

I truly have a love hate relationship with the Bath and Body Works PocketBac Hand Gels on one hand (ha!) I rather like that they contain a high alcohol content as I feel it kills germs and bacteria instantly and I am quite the germ-a-phobe. Yet with such a high percentage the initial scent (they do dry down to whatever fragrance Bath and Body Works promise on the label) is rather intensive and reminds me of neat Vodka not to mention with continuous use they can and will dry out your hands.

I grumble and yet I still purchase them. Why? Well there is the cute factor - be it the dinky little sizes, the sweet labels or the novelty scents and the fact they work better than most other hand gels I have tried in the past. My four new additions are both Halloween and Autumnal in a sense, I ended up purchasing Creamy Pumpkin which is a sweet, spicy yet savoury scent it doesn't quite smell like pumpkin but it has a typical Autumnal scent. I know great job of describing that Adrienne! My personal favourite is I Love S'mores which is a blend of chocolate and marshmallow, it is of course rather sweet and synthetic but pleasant none the less. Being a cake fiend I simply had to snatch up Pumpkin Cupcake which oddly reminds me a little of pistachios and pralines - it has a comforting, creamy yet almost biscuit like fragrance and is good enough to eat. Lastly I have Pumpkin Caramel Latte which smells like the beverage of the same name - Starbucks fans may want to stock up.

As mentioned I purchased these from bathandbodyshop.co.uk but you can find lots more scents on eBay for roughly the same price.

  13. I have a few non halloween ones that I have & use sparingly from a trip to the US back in June. I really wish they'd open a store here as these are only $0.75 in the US.
    Pumpkin Caramel Latte sounds AMAZING

  14. I saw these on an eBay sellers shop I use to buy my Pocketbac's from, but didn't look into them too much. They sound really yummy, especially I Love S'mores, which I can see me making a cheeky purchase of for the autumn season. I'd love for them to have made a mint hot chocolate scent too, but the Christmas collection is yet to be unveiled yet!
