The "Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps" and "Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps" now come in a new bottle: it's shorter and wider than the old design, and slightly larger in overall volume than the previous bottle design. They've also changed the formulas and eliminated the anti-bacterial element to the hand soaps, which I am happy about. (Read more about why it might be good to avoid anti-bacterial soaps)
If you're like us, you might have a metal slip-cover / soap sleeve for the (now discontinued) "old" bottle shape. I was looking at buying a new one, since there are so many more options...they have silver, bronze, antique, etc options for the new sleeves, but I didn't really want to spend $5.50 for a new cover. Well, don't fret! A friendly tip I learned this week with regards to the new bottle designs at Bath and Body Works...they will gladly exchange your old bottle sleeve for a new one at no cost! This was told to me by an employee at the Willowbrook Mall (Langley, BC) location, and said that all of the locations will honour this policy. She also recommended leaving your old sleeve in your car for when you next happen to pop into a Bath & Body Works, that way you'll be prepared! A great tip!
*****UPDATE: As of Fall 2014, Bath & Body Works Canada will now only be giving a 30% off discount towards the purchase of a new soap cover/sleeve when you bring in your older style sleeve. I was a little dismayed by this (November 24, 2014) when I finally brought in my own sleeve to exchange it for a new one. They just never seemed to have silver ones in stock, until the holidays arrived! Oh well! Hope you got yours while it lasted!
