$1/lotion, $2/fragrance mist: Dark Kiss by Bath & Body Works August 10, 2010

Dark KissI heard on the DL yesterday that Bath & Body Works has a stunning new fragrance that is just making its debut — Dark Kiss. A friend of mine was shopping there yesterday and sent me an email right away! Their site describes Dark Kiss as  “a seductive blend of dark berries with a kiss of vanilla to unleash your most primal passions.” Ooh, la la! Seriously, though, she said this was great stuff!

Right now, Bath & Body Works has sample bottles of their Dark Kiss body lotion (2 oz.) on sale for just $1, and their Dark Kiss fragrance mist (1 oz.) on sale for just $2.  This deal is available in the store and on-line (though you’d have to pay shipping), and no coupon is needed.

Hmm… I’m wondering if B&BW is trying to bite into all the vampire hoopla in the movies, books, etc. (Yes, pun intended!)

Here’s the best tip of the weekend: AVOID THE MALL… like the plague! Oh. my. goodness. I went to the mall yesterday late afternoon to get one thing at one store. It was a madhouse! The parking lot was nearly full, you could feel the raging hormones of the dressed-to-impress teens on spring break, and the sales staff was clearly overwhelmed — as was I!

TODAY: FREE Shipping from Clinique December 18, 2009

Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free. That’s my kind of cosmetic & skin care! A fabulous email just arrived in my inbox… TODAY ONLY, Clinique is offering FREE SHIPPING on any order – no minimum purchase! Just use code DELIGHT at checkout. Remember, they have skin care lines not only for women, but for men and teens too!

This time of year it is so easy to forget that your skin still needs sun protection — but it does. Winter sun still causes skin damage, so be sure to continue to use sunscreen. Their City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector (in SPF 25 or 40) goes on nicely under make-up, or on its own. You’ll thank me in 20 years. 🙂
