PART ONE – Hand Soaps and Candles
Hello everyone and welcome to the Ingrid Nicole: Alive & Living blog! During the holidays, I took a much needed break from the (occasionally stressful!) college life by traveling to the great Salt Lake City, Utah. I was able to spend quality time with family and experienced magical snowy winter days. I live in a part of California where snow is rarely seen, so waking up to a lovely town covered in a blanket of snow was quite exciting.
While in Utah, I did a “little” shopping with family relatives. Station Park, a plaza filled with different attractions, was by far one of the greatest shopping destinations during my visit. There was a wide range of shops at Station Park, but Bath & Body Works’ large and bright “Semi-Annual Sale” signs drew me in. The store was up to 75% off select items and I found myself purchasing some old favorites and picking up new things.
My all-time favorite hand soaps are from Bath & Body Work’s Gentle Foaming line, which contains Aloe and Vitamin E. The formula washes away impurities without drying out my skin (great for the winter) and there’s several fragrances to choose from. It looks like a liquid hand soap but when you go to pump the product out, it turns into foam. Above are the three fragrances I routinely purchase: Kitchen Lemon, Eucalyptus Mint, and Peach Bellini. I picked up two of each during the semi-annual sale and discovered they also carry these same fragrances in a different line, Deep Cleansing, which is an exfoliating bead-like soap.
The Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale also included some of their three-wick candles. I had purchased the Oahu Coconut Sunset last summer because of it’s subtle sweet tiger lily scent. I thought the ombre design was unique and so wanted to buy another one. My Bath & Body Works store back home didn’t carry the Hawaii line anymore so when I found it hidden behind other candles during the sale, I was thrilled! I’m not sure if Bath & Body Works will continue the Hawaii line but you can find some great deals here!
