Celebrate Merdeka Your Way with This Glam Guide

Rejoice this National Day as we celebrate Malaysia’s 65th year of independence. Hang our flag, the jalur gemilang, proud and high at your homes as we reel in the festivities. Whether you’re opting to stay in or head out with family, friends or a special someone, Bath & Body Works has got you covered completely from head to toe.

Step 1: Get Fresh with Body Scrub & Body Wash

Before anything, let’s freshen up first before your date or for your cosy day at home. Go for a body wash or body scrub – it's up to you. Our Gingham Love Moisturizing Body Wash gives you all the good stuff with shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil. Now, here’s a fun fact: body scrubs remove dead skin cells for better absorption of moisture – just scrub in small circular motions, but only use it two to three times a week to avoid over exfoliation. With that, try our Gingham Love Foaming Sugar Body Scrub that's infused with vitamin E and sugar exfoliants for a luxurious and rich lather.

Step 2: Prep Your Skin with Body Lotion & Body Spray

After you step out of the shower, it’s time to give your skin some extra love. Our Gingham Love Super Smooth Body Lotion does that for you as it gives 24 hours of nourishing moisture and leaves skin feeling noticeably softer. Plus, it’s lightweight for fast absorption and is dermatologically tested so your skin can get the best benefits. Finish it off with our Gingham Love Fine Fragrance Mist our irresistible and long-lasting mist that conditions and nourishes your skin for a refreshing spritz every time.

Step 3: Set the Mood with Our Room Spray or Fragrance

Did you know that scents have the power to change your mood? In fact, citrus scents are said to have properties that calms nerves, and makes you more relaxed and happier. This is why our Endless Weekend Concentrated Room Spray is perfect for the festivities, especially if you are opting for a day at home – it gives an instant refresh with notes of fresh summer mandarin, sun-kissed magnolia and blue coconut water to set the mood as you unwind on this public holiday. Not a fan of room sprays? Try our Endless Weekend Enhanced Wallflower Fragrance which can last for weeks! All you need is a Wallflower plug and you can enjoy the scents too.

Step 4: Light Up Your Festivities with a 3-Wick Candle

For a more romantic and cosier stay-at-home mood or as you get ready for your day out, light up a 3-wick candle. Stay patriotic with our Hibiscus Waterfalls 3-Wick Candleto celebrate this joyous day as Hibiscus is Malaysia’s national flower. Made with natural essential oils, our 3-wick candles deliver an amazing, room-filling fragrance experience with quality lead-free wicks, and a soy wax blend.
