Ah, the Holidays! Doesn’t the idea get you all warm and fuzzy? But you know what’ll make it even sweeter? Getting your Holiday shopping done early.
Glitter Geek has you covered this Holiday with a beauty gift guide that you’ll want to email out to your family and friends. Don’t worry, it’s cool. We encourage this kind of behaviour.
First up are bath and body treats. Bubbly baths and warm showers are just what the doctor ordered for the cold winter nights we are sure to get. If you’re not a winter person, make it your excuse to wind down with lots of long baths.
Pure + simple Winter-proof Body Kit, $49.95 ($71.85 Value)
If you suffer from itchy skin during the colder months and nothing else works to calm it, then this is the solution to your problem. It contains the new Creamy Citrus Body Cleanser 200 ml, a Organic Citrus Body Oil 200 ml, and Intensive Moisture Body Lotion 200 ml. I’ve been using the Creamy Citrus Body Cleanser on my dry itchy legs, and honestly, they are back to normal after only 5 days of use (!!!). I love invigorating citrus scents on my morning showers, so this one is right up my alley. I am already a big fan of Pure + simple products, and it looks like I’ll have to add this set to the collection. Available starting December 1 at Pure + simple stores.
Philosophy The Gingerbread Man Foaming Bubble Bath & Shower Gel, $21
If you don’t already know, Philosophy’s Holiday shower gels have a cult following larger than Justin Bieber’s. The Gingerbread Man is one shower gel that can’t be missed. The scent is sharp and citrusy like ginger ale. Again, this one is great for sleepy mornings, but if ginger ale’s not your cuppa tea… I just don’t see how you couldn’t like my next suggestion. Available exclusively at Sephora for a limited time.
Philosophy Classic Fudge Cake High-Foaming Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath, $21
Fellow chocoholics, put your hands up! Unlike The Gingerbread Man, Classic Fudge Cake is actually permanent, so you don’t have to hoard bottles of this one to last you until next Christmas. I love Philosophy’s shower gels because they always seem to get the scent perfectly, and this one is no different. It tastes, er, smells like cake without the calories. A little disclaimer though: there is a real recipe on the label, so bake it if you dare! I heard it’s delicious. Available exclusively at Sephora.
LUSH The First Snow, $34.95
This awesome shower kit comes with: Snow Globe Soap 3.5 Oz, Iced Wine Shower Jelly 3.5 Oz, Ice Blue Soap 3.5 Oz, Glögg Shower Gel 3.3 Fl. Oz., Too Drunk…Emotibomb 1.8oz. Too Drunk… Emotibomb is my favourite. It kinda smells hippy-ish. Does that make sense? It smells good, I swear! This is a nice set for those who are without a bath tub but still want their bathroom to smell like a LUSH store.
LUSH Best Wishes, $19.95
This is an absolute must for those who love their long baths. The set contains: So White Bath Bomb 3.1 Oz, Satsumo Santa Bath Bomb 6.3 Oz, Bearded Lady Bubble Bar 3.5 Oz. Satsumo is another personal favourite; it smells so amazing, and how cute is the tubby Santa? Adorbz!
