HAUL! Victoria's Secret, Bath & Body Works, Trader Joe's

Hi everyone! I hope summer is treating you well! I had the opportunity to have a day out with my mother and sister, and we hit up the mall for the semi-annual sale at Victoria's Secret. We also stopped by Bath & Body Works, and I ran by Trader Joe's a couple of days later. Check out what I picked up!

First, the VS goodies.

Here we have the Victoria's Secret Bronze and the PINK Party in Paradise Tinted Self-Tanning Gel. The bronzer is in stick form, and is very bronzy and very shimmery. I have been using this as a cream eyeshadow lately. It can also be used for legs, arms, etc. for date night or whenever. There is a TON of product, so I never really see myself using it all. I plan on using the self tanning gel when my summer tan begins to fade, which will kinda be a sad day... 

This is the PINK Ready to Party 2-in-1 Wash & Scrub, Island Rush Hand and Body cream, and Endless Summer Whipped Body SoufflĂ©. The scrub is nice, and it smells like a perfume to me. Not a very harsh scrub, but good for everyday use. The hand and body cream is nice too, great smell (described as pomelo & coconut water... yum), and probably won't last very long since I go through this kind of stuff like crazy. The body soufflĂ© has a texture like I have never seen before. It is definitely whipped - it has an airy texture that goes on the skin smoothly. Lightly scented with light moisture. This product is not greasy at all. 

Steal of the day alert! This is the full (or large?) size of the So in Love Eau de Parfum. I love this scent, and have owned it before. It is 2.5 fl oz, and smells like heaven! It is a very girly scent, which I usually don't love, but here, it totally works :) 

Next is the PINK Party in Paradise Beach Hair Wave Spray. I have no idea how this stuff will work on my stick straight hair, but I am hoping for the best! Smells beachy, and is described as exotic orchid and sun-kissed vanilla. 

Now for the Bath & Body Works goodies:

The. Best. Smell. EVER. I purchased the 3 wick candle in the scent Endless Summer earlier this past spring, and when I saw the hand soap in the same scent, I grabbed it up. It is the Deep Cleansing Hand Soap, and the smell is amazing! It is like a mini vacation every time I use it. I also grabbed a Peach Bellini foaming hand soap for good measure - this scent is always amazing as well. 

Here we have a Coconut Lime Breeze Shower Gel and Body Cream. These scents are my go-to summer scents, and with every whiff I am taken back to summers gone by... :) I also picked up another True Blue Spa Paraffin Super Softening Hand Lotion. This stuff is by far the best hand moisturizer I have every used. I picked it up in preparation for the winter months because my hands get soooo dry during that time of the year. 

Ah those luscious scents the B&BW has. I picked up my favorite summer candle, the Pineapple Mango one. This scent is indescribably good. Also grabbed a couple of Peach Bellini Wallflowers refills. My husband and I like to use these in our bedroom. A also picked up another Wallflowers refill in Mahogany Teakwood. This one smells like a good men's cologne. Ahhhh. 

Another scrub. Apparently I plan on being very exfoliated :) This one is the Amber Blush Golden Sugar Scrub, and the warm vanilla sugary smell reminds me more of fall or winter, so I will save it to use then.  

And finally, here's the one thing I picked up at Trader Joe's after seeing it on one of my favorite YouTubers videos a while back. CheckInTheMirror's Rachel Talbot liked it, so I thought I would give it a try. Check her out here. Love her!

 This is the Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter. Smells delicious! My husband and I think that it smells like cake. I don't see this lasting very long, as it is a deeper moisturizer (which I like) and I plan on using it while on vacation. Texture is smooth and absorbs in nicely.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and also hope that you enjoy the rest of your summer!
