C.O. Bigelow is here! C.O. Bigelow is here!
C.O. Bigelow's Mentha Lip Shine (recommended by my clever, super-cool friend Shelley Scarrow) and Lemon Hand Cream were my first two purchases from Bath & Body Works years ago on a press trip to NYC -- or was it L.A.? Doesn't matter. What matters is that I can now buy them from Bath & Body Works locations at Erin Mills Town Centre or Yorkdale Mall. In Mississauga or Toronto. Or in Guelph, London, or Edmonton. In CANADA.
I could go on for some time about the store's extensive collection of something-for-everyone spa-inspired shower gels, lotions, body butters, scrubs, scents, gloss, candles, home fragrance and other accessories, and I could geek out about my new obsessions, Henri Bendel candles in Apricot, Tuberose, and Lemon Verbena, Slatkin & Co. candles and Scentports (stylish plug-ins) in Fresh Linen and Fresh Bamboo, Liplicious Tasty Lip Colour in Grapefruit and Watermelon Sorbet (natch), C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint in Magenta Mint... but that would just mean more time for you in front of the computer instead of browsing the shelves.
The Bath & Body Works website doesn't ship to Canada, unfortunately, but it does list the new Canadian locations, including one slated to open in November at Willowdale's Fairview Mall. If you live in Canada but far away from all those new stores, now might be a good time to make some new long-distance friends (sorry, Clive-Oâ€™s taken).
