Why have you stopped making my favorite fragrance?

We know it’s sad to see a fragrance go, and we’re sorry for your disappointment. But don’t despair! Some of the fragrances you loved in stores are now available as Retired Fragrances on our website.

Your opinion matters to us, and we would be happy to receive an email from you telling us your favorite product. Send it to CustomerCare@BathandBodyWorks.com, and we’ll forward that information to our Product Development Team.

Do you have any tips for how to safely use your candles?

We’re glad you asked! Here are 4 easy tips to keep in mind:

  1. Don't touch your candle while hot! Never touch or move a Candle while lit; wait until wax hardens.
  2. Keep an eye on your candles! Always burn Candles where you can see them (no longer than 3-4 hours at a time) and never near anything that can catch fire. Candles will burn slower and more evenly when kept in draft-free areas. Extinguish the flames before you leave the room. Never extinguish the flame with water.
  3. Keep your Candles clean! Trim wicks to ¼ inch before you light them — every time! Straight, short wicks make your Candles melt evenly. And properly dispose of used matches and wick trimmings instead of leaving them in the Candle.
  4. Keep Candles out of reach! Watch pets and children to avoid Candles being accidentally knocked over.

How are Body Lotion, Body Cream & Body Butter different from one another?

Thanks for asking!

All include shea butter. All are non-greasy. All provide hours of nourishing moisture. All contain ingredients that soothe, nourish & pamper. All will leave your skin feeling soft & smooth.

So, what actually differentiates our skin-loving trio? Density!

On the lightest side of the scale is Body Lotion, with 16 hours of continuous moisture. In the middle, it’s Body Cream (hello, 24 hour hydration!) And on the thick & richest side, it’s Body Butter, also proven to soften skin for 24 hours. No matter your style, we’ve got a moisturizer tailored to your needs!

How can I tell when my favorite Bath & Body Works body care product is expired?

Fantastic question!

Because ingredient combinations break down at different rates over time, expiration dates vary from product to product. In general, though, here are a few rules of thumb:

  • Sealed containers should remain fresh for three years after the manufacture date.
  • Skin care products in opened containers should be effective for up to two years. After two years? It’s best to toss them and re-stock!
  • Preserve the life of your product by storing it in a cool place (about 10 degrees lower than normal room temperature).
  • Last, expired body care products won’t damage skin, but they will be less effective over time. Aged ingredients won’t nourish and hydrate your skin as thoroughly as fresh ones.
