If you’re anything like us, there are two times a year when you’re anxiously counting down the days until you can shop the semi-annual sales at your favorite stores. Last week the much awaited Semi-Annual Sale at Bath & Body Works kicked off, so we obviously had to make a visit (and do a complete haul of all our favorite products that are on sale!).

There is nothing more exciting than stocking up on all your favorite scents, filling your drawers to the brim, and realizing how much money you saved! We wanted to share in the excitement, so today we are sharing some of the best savings happening at the semi-annual sale, and a few tips to help you shop the sale like a pro!

Scroll on for some serious savings…

The semi-annual sale is the perfect time to stock up on hand soaps because they’re all on sale for $3 (yes, you read that right!).


Hand soap = $3 (regularly $6.50)

Savings = $3.50/each

Especially during these frigid winter months, there’s nothing better than the scents of summer and vacation. Move over Warm Vanilla Sugar, we’re stocking our cabinets with beachy lotions and sprays.

Oahu Lotion = $6.25 (originally $12.50)

Savings = $6.25/each

Body Spray = $7.25 (originally $14.50)

Savings = $7.25

Body Wash = $6.25 (originally $12.50)

Savings = $6.25/each

We’ll admit, we’ve jumped on the essential oil bandwagon, and we don’t see ourselves turning back. If you have yet to try Bath & Body Work’s essential oils collection, now is the time to do it!

Essential Oil Fine Fragrance Mist = $4.00 (originally $16.50)

Savings = $12.50/each

This line quickly became a must-have for us as soon as we first tried it out. Even better? You can get 4 of them for the price of 1 during the sale!

White, Rose and Black Cream Lotion = $3.50 (originally $13.50)

Savings = $10.00/each

Last, but definitely not least, if there is a time to grab one (or a couple) of your favorite 3-wick candles, it’s now! Nearly all of the popular scents are 50% off during the sale.


3-Wick Candles = $11.25 (originally $22.50)

Savings = $11.25/each

If you’re adding all that up, that is a savings of 50-75% off everything in store! Getting excited? Here are some of the highlights of the sale:

  • Up to 75% off signature body care
  • $3 hand soaps
  • $3 wallflower fragrance refills (select scents)
  • 50% off select 3-wick candles
  • $3 (and up) retired fragrances

Before you go, here are a few tips for shopping Semi-Annual Sales like a pro:

  • Shop early! A lot of times, items go extremely fast (especially popular scents!). Shop the sale early so you can make sure to snag your favorite items.
  • Don’t let go. If you’re contemplating on an item, grab it and put it in your bag while you decide. With so many people shopping, it may end up flying off the shelf before you get a chance to go back and grab it.
  • Know your discounts. With so much product and so many items on sale, it’s important to read signs carefully to lessen confusion once you reach the counter. A lot of times, some discounts apply to only select products.
  • Check back! Bath & Body Works is continuously stocking items, which means that that scent that disappeared from your eyes, may be back in stock the next day or even within a few hours.

Happy shopping!
