I went to the bath and body In FW on university! I bought five of the 4 ounce demo candles and they were on the 75 % sale! So I went to the highland store to get more!

Bath & Body Works Direct wallflower

Hello,

I wanted to inform you that tonight as my girls were getting out of the shower, all of a sudden their skin started burning. It was from a wallflower that I had plugged in. It didn't catch on fire, but the aroma was bad. It had a cinnamon smell. I didn't even have a cinnamon scent plugged in. I don't remember the name of the one I had but wasn't this smell. My older daughter's back was burned and my youngest is all over her body. She had to quickly go downstairs and get into another shower to wash off her body. Had my husband and I not reacted quickly, this could have been much worse. I am attaching some photos of my youngest body.

Sincerely,

Kelly Sims. [protected]

Bath & Body Works Direct twilight woods body/bath wash bath and body works

i purchased Twlight Woods and on 5-17-18 after taking a bath I broke out from the waist down with itching. The following day I went to the Urgent Care three times, as well as my dermatologist four times. It took 45 days to resolve the itiching and heal my skin from the welts. I still have residual itching that is generalized and this has been a year now. I feel I am still suffering neurological effects from the trauma and need to be compensated for my work off ( I am a registered nurse) as well as medical and prescription costs. Your company continues to use ingredients specifically MI aka MIT which is a cytotoxin. This cytotoxin is in Twlight Woods and I assume in all your wash off products. Even though you may be keeping this amount within a legal range you are morally wrong to keep products that you have evidence they can cause severe damage to skin. I intend to keep reporting my story as I feel your organization does not show they care about product safety on humans.

Bath & Body Works Direct sales / customer service

After seeing some items that looked very nice, we thought we'd purchase online and try some, especially considering the sale prices of a few. However:

•No "Pick Up In Store" Option;
•Sales only apply online;
•Shipping costs are insane ($10 to ship a small 8-ounce tube?);
•Then they add a "handling" charge;
•And finally, they add sales tax to their shipping and handling, as well!

So, a $6 item costs more than $17.50 with no option to pick it up in-store, and the store won't honor the sale. And it would have been $25 without the sale? Not in my lifetime.

Horrible policies. Their prerogative, but we'll never return.

Bath & Body Works Direct manager/ashley

I have been a customer of bath and bodyworks since the beginning, it is my place of choice for gift giving to friends as well as myself...I was estatic to find that they were opening a new one near me in selden, long island/n.Y., which saved me trips to the mall, couldn't wait to tell friends, co-workers, and sisters, my visits were increased during the holidays, in which i noticed the girls on the floor were great, but the manager was rude, nasty, and not friendly, i let it go thinking it night have been because of the holiday rush...However, i stopped by last week and purchased items for friends and myself...I wanted to take advantage of the buy 3, get 3 free, adding up to more than i anticipated, so i proceeded to use my victoria's secret card which has a credit limit of $1400.00(please confirm), ans was told: 1)they didn't accept the v.S. Card...2)they weren't allowed to call the help desk, didn't exist...3)that i would have to use another method of payment...4)the phone/land line would not give them access to the 800 victoria's secret help desk...These were all the excuses made by your manager ashley, this conversation was made/spoken loudly in front of other customers whom were taken by her nasty attitude, and agreed she was highly unprofessional...Needless to say i was really embarrassed by her behavior, again...She is the second manager in charge that i experienced this disgusting mannerism...I will never patronize your establishment again, and will strongly encourage others to do the same!

Bath & Body Works Direct Defective product

Hi,

So I purchased a Bath and Body Works product - Sweet Pea Foaming Sugar Scrub, from the store in Mall of India, Sector 18, Noida, India on 10th February, 2019. The Bar code for the product is - 0 667542 792208
Since then, I have barely used the product twice and the third time when I used it, I realized that the tube is open from the crimp. I have also attached the pitctures with this message.
This made it very difficult for me to carry it anywhere as I feared leakage and moreover, it is not impossible to use as the content comes out from the wrong end of the tube and causes a big mess.
This was my first purchase from Bath and Body Works and I must admit it has been quite disappointing. I have paid such a big amount to purchase an inferior quality product, which I feel was a complete waste of my money.

All I can request you to do now is to kindly refund my money or at least have the product replaced as this one is not good to be used, unless I decide to store the contents in a bowl and finish it all up in one bath.

Hope to hear from you soon
Thanks and Regards,
Nusrat Ansari

Bath & Body Works Direct service at gurney paragon, penang malaysia

A female worker with long hair nearly touching the boobs was very rude. She treated me and my friend like we are poor kids. When I asked for body scrub she said that I should just look at the promotion area. Please pick better workers who are more educated. She followed us so obvious and close we felt so uncomfortable and murmered on us trying out the fragrances. She even told us off for smelling the samples. When asked for the pricing of the handcream she just said the pricing very very rudely. No smile was given and thank you was taken for granted. She even gave us mean glances that [censored]es like to make. This made us very very uncomfortable. To the extend I went over to the guy employee to ask him for checkout. Younger than you doesn't mean they are customers u can disrespect. Please at least have manners n don't bring your improper upbringing into your working hours which could ruin your customer's day. Btw my friend didn't purchase cause of this female employee so she decided to buy her gift for her mother elsewhere. Hope you take some actions. Thank you.

Bath & Body Works Direct online ordering

Bath and Body Works really needs to do something about their online ordering system.Three times now I've tried to order candles off their website, and after I put what I want into my bag, it says they are out of stock, yet when I went back to check, those same candles are still coming up as available.Very frustrating to see candles for sale on their site that have most likely been sold out for days, yet they continue to advertise them.Also, they are really bad with keeping up with product demand.On candle day, everything was sold out within hours, and the day of SAS, it was same thing.All the best products were gone within hours.BBW obviously can't properly manage such big sales online, so I will wait until SAS is over, and hopefully can get what I want then.I have never had a problem with BBW online ordering, unless there is a big sale.

Bath & Body Works Direct double the pending charges from online ordering system crashing

On 12/26/18 Bath and Body Works had a sale on their 3 wick candles. I went online and placed a large order - instead of going to the store which is what I should have done. After hitting submit, the system came back with invalid credit card information. So I checked my debit card information and it was correct and I hit submit. It went off stating processing and acted very strangely - finally when it came back I went to look up my order. No order - I logged out and back in and still no order. So then I logged onto my bank and there was a pending charge for $134.81. So I logged back into Bath and Body Works and still no order. So I called the 800 number waited 13 minutes for a representative who said the system crashed and everything would clear up once it came back up. Meanwhile people are laughing in the background while I am on the phone - why am I waiting 13 minutes ... So next day go into BB&T and check and now I have $269.62 in pending charges, twice the charges. So I log onto Bath and Body Works and STILL NO ORDER. I call back and the representative I get is RUDE and tells me "Bath and Body Works has no control over pending charges I have to talk to my credit card company". So no order and double the charges and I HAVE TO FIX IT. So I talk with BB&T who cannot do anything unless a fax is sent stating that Bath and Body Works will not be processing those fees. Call Bath and Body Works back and talk with a representative who takes all of the information and states she will give it to her supervisor to fax. So on 12/29/18 go onto my bank account and double charges are still pending. Call Bath and Body Works back and get a representative who actually cares and she tries everything she can to get BB&T to release the charges. BB&T states it will be 7-8 business days. She has no record of my conversation on 12/27/18 when the representative supposedly took my information to fax to BB&T. On 12/30/18 I had a bill to pay which thanks to Bath and Body Works I did not have the money in my account. So on 12/31/18 I transferred money into my account to pay my bill that is now late. So today I have double the charges on my account pending STILL, no order from Bath and Body Works, and late charges on an account because I had to transfer funds. So all of this just to get $10 candles ...

Bath & Body Works Direct rude and disrespectful store manager

I visited the pentagon city in Arlington, VA store on 12/15 and was very disappointed by the treatment i received by the store manager. After spending $181 just on that visit, i requested a gift receipt. The cashier helping me was the manager of the store named Alicia who was having trouble printing a gift receipt. Her exact words were "what part you don't understand, are you stupid?" when i insisted on getting a gift receipt. She continued shaming me and mistreating me. I asked her to return all the my purchase and she replied by saying "Absolutely" with so much attitude. Unfortunately she refused to give me her full name and the only thing i have is her 1st name i got from her name tag. She claimed it's your policy not to give full name with didn't make sense to me. I'm a long time customer of Bath and body works and it's a shame i have to end this relationship due to your untrained manager.

Bath & Body Works Direct 3 wick scented candles

I ordered 4 three wick candles on 12/11/2018. Package ID [protected], Store #083020, shipping method NEWG, Trans # 4379. Received by USPS on 12/18/2018. They were haphazardly packaged and box was damaged. Three of the candles were intact, but the tops of the containers were ajar and the 4th container was broken with shards of glass in the box. The broken candle was Fresh Balsam. I have ordered numerous candles from Bath & Body Works online before and have never received them package in such a way. I realize that it is the holiday season and the volume of shipments is high at this time, but this is shabby packaging. I expect another Fresh Balsam 3 wick scented candle, at no charge or a full refund for the same.

Bath & Body Works Direct buy 3 get 3 free sale

I purchased 3 items and supposedly got 3 free of equal or lesser value. After looking at the receipt everything was marked down and nothing was "free". When I asked the cashier what is free she attempted to get out a calculator to show me where and what is free. After several minutes of looking confused she stated that "basically" their free but there's a lesser charge just in case of a return. I told her either it's free or not free but there is nothing basic about this fraudulent sale. I asked for my money back and returned the entire order. I'm very disappointed in bath and body works for false advertising and will no longer buy from there.
