I've decided to start a new feature called Thursday Thoughts. It's actually a follow-up to The Wednesday Question and I think it's long overdue!
Basically, every Thursday I'm going to review all of the answers you've given to me in response to the Wednesday Question, and kind of give you a little summary as to the things I've noticed. It can be as simple as letting you know that we all tend to agree on one particular product, or maybe I might want to let you know about something unique that's been brought to my attention.
I figured that since you all take the time to leave such incredible, thoughtful responses to my Wednesday Question every week, it would be helpful to actually discuss your responses and share the results here, instead of just in the comments on the original post. I hope you end up getting something out of this, because believe me, I get SO much out of your answers every week!
So to refresh your memory, this week's question was:
Bath & Body Works or The Body Shop?
An overwhelming amount of you tend to prefer Bath & Body Works over The Body Shop, but not for the reasons you might expect! For some of you, BBW is the winner by default, just because you don't have a TBS in your area. Many of you prefer BBW because their prices are lower (and of course because of the famous BBW Semi-Annual Sales).
For those of you who love your TBS, I was surprised to hear that the main reason why so many of you love TBS is because of their makeup. It's been a while since I tried TBS makeup, but I do remember loving a few items very much in the late '90s. I think it's time I revisited TBS's makeup section!
Another thing people tend to love from TBS is their famous body butters. Who can argue with that, really? They're pretty awesome.
I did find it interesting that several readers who prefers BBW likes to shop there because of the prices ,while it didn't seem that too many of you felt that BBWs products were actually better than TBS's products. Maybe I read that wrong though--do some of you think that BBW's products are superior to TBS's?
So for the purposes of this poll, I'm going to say that BATH & BODY WORKS comes out the victor, but it might be a shallow victory because things like geography and pricing played a major role in why so many of you prefer this brand.
PS: I don't want to forget to mention that a few of you said, "Thanks, but no thanks" to both TBS And BBW. Lush, etailers and Etsy sellers have your hearts (which I can completely understand!).
So what do you think of these results? Did anything surprise you? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
