Ready to get into all things Body Care Day 2022? Let’s start with the basics.
1. When is Bath & Body Works Body Care Day 2022?
The next Bath & Body Works Body Care Day sale began on Dec. 9 (starting at 12:01 a.m. ET) — or on Dec. 8 (starting at 8 p.m. ET) if you’re a My Bath & Body Works Rewards member. The sale only lasts two days, and it happens both in stores and online.
Body Care Day always takes place in December — the week after Candle Day — which makes it the absolute perfect time to stock up on stocking stuffers and gifts for neighbors, your mother-in-law, or your white elephant exchange.
TIP: Don’t forget to sign up for the Bath & Body Works Rewards program. Rewards members get to shop Body Care Day a day early on Dec. 8 from 8 p.m. to midnight ET (online only!).

Unfortunately, the sale doesn’t include perfumes or men’s cologne.

4. The 2022 price for Body Care items went down to $4.95 with a promo code.
The first year that Bath & Body Works hosted Body Care Day was back in 2018, and the price was $2.95 for body lotion only (that was literally the only item included in the sale). In 2019 Bath & Body Works included their full line of body care products in the event and increased the price to $4.95. In 2020, the price was hiked up — just like Candle Day — to $5.95. But in 2021, they dropped the price down to $5.50.
We were excited to see Candle Day’s price drop in 2022, and we were pretty pumped the same thing happened for Body Care Day in 2022. The price for body care items in 2022 was just $4.95 with the promo code GIFTLIST.
5. How do Body Care Day prices compare to the rest of the year?
Throughout the year, Bath & Body Works offers sales on their body care products. Other than during the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual sale, you can expect to see body care prices drop as low as $5.50 other times of the year. But during the Body Care Day sale in 2022, the price dropped even lower, to $4.95.
The best products to buy during the Body Care Sale (and the ones that typically sell out the fastest) are body scrubs and body butter. These two products have a higher regular price point than other body care products, making the savings go even further!
TIP: Skip buying the bar soap, as its sale price is right around the $4.95 offered for Body Care Day.
6. Body Care Day carries a limit of 20 products per shopper.
Now hear me out on this one. I know that limits may generally seem bad, but I’m gonna argue the opposite is true in this case.
First, the limit makes sure nobody clears the store out before you get there. But second, and I think most importantly, how else would we ever know how many body care items to get? Would we stop ourselves at two dozen? Three? Would we bring a second wagon?
Without a limit, you’d find me holding up the checkout line while running back to grab just one more.
Twenty body care items per person. It’s probably enough, no? If you really must have more, there’s no reason you couldn’t make two trips. Nothing in the brief fine print would preclude you from doing so.
7. What about coupons on Body Care Day?
Bath & Body Works coupons don’t have any blackout dates, so if you’ve got a valid coupon, you can use it on Body Care Day as long as you’re shopping in store.
The Bath & Body Works Rewards program is available in all areas, so you’ll want to sign up so you get your welcome coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase. The coupon code is valid in store and online. All new Rewards members will receive this offer, and details will be in your Wallet within 72 hours of joining.
Because the coupon expires 30 days from when you sign up, don’t take the steps to get this coupon until the week before the next anticipated Body Care Day date. If you already have an account, sign up your partner, your mom, the mail carrier, or anyone willing to share that code with you once they receive it.
9. Shop in store during Body Care Day, not online.
Body Care Day online requires you to use a digital coupon code to get the discounted price. Because you can only use one code per online order, stacking coupons online on Body Care Day doesn’t work.
And that’s not the only reason I recommend you shop in store. It’s also because of the issues with Bath & Body Works’ free shipping — or lack thereof. The new store pickup option was paused on Candle Day, just as it was for Body Care Day — making it nearly impossible to avoid the $6.99 standard shipping fee on every Bath & Body Works online order, no matter how big.

10. Score a Bath & Body Works blanket for $30.
For 2022, Bath & Body Works offered a blanket for $30 when you made a $45 purchase. It’s a super plush, cozy blanket and is available in-store and online. I love getting these blankets to add to a gift basket along with my body care products to make the ultimate relaxation gift.
