Seeking last minute stocking stuffers or a friendly hostess gift for a friend? Crack out the Ulta Peppermint Swirl 3-in-1 Shower Smoothie for the win!
This Philosophy dupe (or Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint) can be used as a shower gel, a shampoo, or as a bubble bath and has the sweet, cool, crispy scent of candy canes swirled with vanilla. It’s a touch more minty fresh than vanilla but it does the trick perfectly if you aren’t wanting to splurge on Philosophy version or you’re just missing Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint aka I can’t believe they didn’t bring it back along with lambie, what the hell are they thinking? Oh sorry did I go off on a rant there?
This is a nice jumbo, 24 oz size with a squirt topper for easy squeeze-free lathering up!
Ulta always has these Smoothies available for buy 2 Two, Get Two Free so check your local Ulta to see what deals they have going at the moment. Online this will set you back a mere $8.99 so it’s a nice budget pick however in store shopping is nesscary at this point if you’re wanting a last minute pressie!
It’s not Philosophy but it’s the next best thing particularly for the beauty budgeters!
Well, it’s about that time now.
Time for Holiday Shopping! You may have already started, I know I have. Seriously, it’s been a great few weeks of sales and I couldn’t not take advantage while the getting was good but some folks may still be shopping, I know I am, where as others may not have started yet, you suck (I kid).
This is where I come in.
I’ll be doing daily posts on great gift options, ideas, stocking stuffers, steals, deals, coupon codes, and more to make your Holiday Shopping life all the more easier.
Jump ahead for a great idea for gifting to the beauty lover in your life.

I’m not particularly keen on mass produced palettes from companies such as the Color Workshop, I’m sure you know the ones I mean. That’s why I’m kinda not on board with many of Ulta’s Holiday Palette offerings but I still love looking through the selection from time to time while I’m left to wish and hope that the quality is actually fantastic on a huge palette that contains everything under the moon in terms of makeup and only costs $19.99. It gives me such a warm, fuzzy feeling inside as I day dream.
But fact is I love makeup that much is true so I like looking through both the pretty and the gritty.
Here’s a selection of Ulta’s Holiday Collection 2010. Whether it’s fabulous or just day dreamed to be as such is entirely up to you but at the very least we can enjoy images of makeup right?
