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.

Don’t Be A Shipageddon Victim

What’s Shipageddon?  Shipageddon is when the shipping carriers get overloaded which causes delays.  We experienced it in 2020 and it is expected to return for this holiday season due to an employee shortage.  

What does this mean for you?  It means that if your planning on ordering your holiday packages at the last minute they more than likely will not arrive in time.  In order to get around this you might be considering purchasing locally at the last minute.  This isn’t going to work either because the stores are having the issue.  Their stock won’t be arriving on time either therefore making your instore options limited.

What’s your best course of action?  Order early.  Money an issue?  Try spreading out our holiday shopping out over the a few weeks but still order early.  Don’t wait till the last minute.

As an incentive to do your shopping early I am offering free shipping plus a free mystery gift with your order. No minimum order required. Use discount code Shipageddon expires 11/25/21. (US customers only)
