Three years ago, Bath & Body Works abandoned its single brand, single price point strategy when it started carrying popular lines like C.O. Bigelow, Frederic Fekkai, and Wexler. Neil Fiske, then CEO, said of the change, “This represents another step in the transformation of Bath & Body Works from raspberry shower gel to a modern apothecary of beauty and well-being.”
Now, Bath & Body Works is reinventing itself, once again, by cutting its outside vendor list by 50%. Upscale brands that have left, or are slated to leave flagships by the end of the year include DDF, Peter Thomas Roth, Korres, Juvena, and The Savannah Bee Company. “We still feel very strongly about third-party brands and continue to carry them. We continue to look for not only new items within the brands we carry, but also additional brands,” current CEO Diane Neal said. “I personally think we over-assorted ourselves,” she added.
So if your favorite brand is getting the ax, visit your nearest Bath and Body Works store now and adopt a few soon-to-be homeless beauty products.

A recent addition to Fresh’s skin care selection is the Sugar Acai Age-Delay Body Cream, an innovative moisturizer proven to improve firmness, tone, and smoothness after just 4 weeks. The formula taps into the skin-restoring properties of açaí, an antioxidant-rich “super berry” found deep in the Amazon rainforest. This cream not only is extremely hydrating, but also improves the overall appearance of the body. The addictive scent of bergamot, caramel, and exotic açaí fruit laced with undertones of white and green tea make Sugar Açaí Age-Delay Body Cream a true daily indulgence!

Tonight’s episode of America’s Next Top Model entitled, “The Girl Who Gets A Mango,” had its fair share of famous faces – including the delectable Tyson Beckford and Miss Mary J.
But for me, the most exciting guest appearance was that of Lisa Price, creator of Carol’s Daughter, who founded the brand in her Brooklyn kitchen.
In honor of tonight’s eppy, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to a new product from Carol’s Daughter – Mango Mélange Shea Body Lotion. A luxurious blend of 15% shea butter, this moisturizer absorbs quickly and penetrates deeply to hydrate, condition, moisturize, soften and nourish dry skin for an ultra healthy glow.
