Returning Used Candles

Over the last few months, I have seen post after post of people returning used candles to the store and getting brand new candles using the stores 100% Guarantee.  Per the Bath & Body Works website their returns policy is “We just want you to love it! Return anything, anytime for any reason. 100% Guaranteed.

If at any time you’re not completely satisfied with the quality of our products, you may return them to any of our Bath & Body Works or White Barn Stores in the US for a full refund, subject to the terms of our Return Policy.”

The key to the policy is if you’re not completely satisfied with the product.  If you are burning the candle till there is nothing left you were satisfied with the product.  You have used it for its intended purpose and liked it well enough to use all of it.

I am all for returning items that are defective or if it can’t be used for some reason.  However completely using a product and then returning it is completely wrong.  That is abusing the system. 

What is your opinion on this?

Lotion vs Body Cream

Simply put, lotions are lighter with more water content and less oil. Creams are heavier, with more oil content and less H20.

For example, the Bath & Body Works Starlit Body Lotion is a lightweight body lotion while the brand’s Starlit Ultra Shea Body Cream is a thicker formula that’s infused with rich shea butter.

Then, there are body butters. These are on the thick end of the spectrum.

Dr. Robyn Gmyrek, a board certified dermatologist at UnionDerm, says they’re considered thick creams.

“Body butter is a cream which includes shea, cocoa, mango, or palm butters. They’re generally a thick cream and may also include essential oils and other oils, such as coconut and avocado oils,” Gmyrek says.

National Bubble Bath Day

Dust off your rubber ducky this winter because it’s National Bubble Bath Day on January 8! A lot of us remember bubble baths from our childhoods, and if you’ve never had a bubble bath before then this is definitely a holiday you should try out. The soapy bubbles of these foaming baths are luxurious, ideal for pampering yourself after a hard day. There’s nothing quite like slipping into the hot water of a bubble bath for a nice relaxing soak in the tub. But let’s be honest —when was the last time you had a bubble bath? Most of us hop into the shower in the morning and zip off to start our day. We barely even take the time to eat breakfast, let alone spend an hour sitting in the tub getting prune fingers. Showers may be convenient, quick, and easy, but you can’t relax as well standing up, and everybody deserves a little me-time now and then. A hot bubble bath will relax your muscles, refresh your skin, and help with any congestion you might have. It will even clean your bathtub! For National Bubble Bath Day, join us in celebrating the healthful benefits and all-out luxury of these sudsy soaks.
