Welcome to another gift guide. Today we’re focusing on Holiday Bath and Body Gift Sets. I’m still waiting for my order to arrive, but since sales are ending soon, I thought I’d go ahead a share anyway.
The two sets that I’ve already ordered but have not arrived are:
Molton Brown Bathing Treasures: Molton Brown makes some of the most intoxicating scents and their products are lovely to display. This limited edition holiday set includes 12 travel sizes (1.7 fl. oz) from the body wash collection: Coco & Sandalwood, Orange & Bergamot, Japanese Orange, Suma Ginseng, Gingerlily, Pink Pepperpod, White Sandalwood, Eucalyptus, Samphire, Templetree, Black Peppercorn and Ylang-Ylang. An absolutely fantastic gift! Retails for $50.00 USD – which I think is an amazing deal for this brand!
Philosophy Holiday Handbook: Philosophy knows what they are doing when it comes to bakery-type scents. This set of three travel size hand creams include the follow delicious flavours: peppermint stick, fresh cream and cranberry medley. Peppermint Stick and Fresh Cream smell AMAZING, with the latter being a nice light, fresh fragrance that won’t interfere with your perfume. Philosophy notes that their hand creams are “created with multiple butters, including shea, mango and cocoa, that nurture and soften dry hands, while natural oils and antioxidants moisturize and help protect skin against environmental attack”. I’ve ordered one set but I’m so tempted to keep it for myself I may (will) get another. Retails for $20.00 USD.
On my Wishlist:
L’Occitane Delicious Almond Set (Holiday 2014): O.K. this one isn’t under $50.00 but at $59.00 USD – I think it is a pretty good value and, more importantly, a wonderful, pampering, luxurious gift for someone special. It comes with a full size of the Almond Shower Oil (which usually retails for $24.00 USD), as well as half a full size of the Almond Milk Concentrate (which usually retails for $49.00). That alone is worth about $48.50 USD and then you get minis of the Bonne Mere Milk Soap, Almond Hand Cream and Almond Supple Skin Oil. I’m in love with the Almond Shower Oil and want this set for myself!
Tocca Hand Cream Set – Crema Quintette (Holiday 2014): A collection of five of Tocca’s signature hand creams in: Cleopatra, Stella, Florence, Giulietta and Bianca. Tocca states that its hand creams are enriched with avocado oil, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, aloe, chamomile, and shea butter and are quick absorbing. I’ve owned the hand creams in the past and can confirm that they are lovely – and not too overpowering fragrance-wise. Tocca makes some lovely fragrances in general – Giulietta, my favourite, is currently in my perfume rotation. The hand cream set retails for $32.00 USD.
Crabtree and Evelyn Limited Edition Hand Therapy Trio: Isn’t this tin adorable? I must give Crabtree and Evelyn props for their cute holiday designs. Most of their holiday collection comes in these festive tins and ornament style packaging. Their hand therapy creams claim to “nourish hands with macadamia nut oil, shea butter, and moisture-locking ceramides”. A few months ago I tried the Lavender scent which my mum brought back for me from Canada. It lived in my bed side table and applying it became a night time ritual. This particular holiday exclusive set contains: Frosted Fruits, Iced Rose & Spiced Ginger – don’t they sound delicious? There are other scent sets available as well. Retails for $20.00 USD.
Can you tell I like hand creams? Lol. I do think that they make great gifts though – especially during this time of year when most people like to keep a hand cream in their bag. And even better if it smells lovely, right?
Philosophy Holiday Spice Rack: Contains some of Philosophy’s best holiday bakery scents in 6 oz sizes of the all-in-one shampoo, shower gel & bubble baths in: spiced cinnamon stick, creamy cardamom and vanilla bean nutmeg. Retails for $27.00 USD.
I’m placing my order at Beauty Bar which offering a great promotion right now: $15 off $75, $35 off $150, or $65 off $250; with the code BBCYBER14 (Valid from 24th – 29th November, 2014).
