The Body Shop Festive Body Butter Trio Gift Review

The Body Shop Festive Body Butter Trio Gift Holiday 2012

The Body Shop Festive Body Butter Trio contains three holiday scented body butters in Cranberry Joy, Vanilla Bliss, and Ginger Sparkle for $15.

I generally like the Body Shop Body Butter but this was an unexpected purchase for me. I dunno why but I typically spend a majority of my Holiday digging through Bath & Body Works offerings. However, the Body Shop had SO many great deals this year I opted to purchase many presents from them. In doing so I fell in love with their Holiday Lip Balms which in turn led to the purchase of this trio as I adored the fragrance/flavor of those balms. And knew I’d feel just as good about the body butters!

Take a look!

Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co White Barn Christmas 2012 Candle

Bath Body Works Slatkin Co White Barn Christmas 2012 Candle

White Barn Christmas 2012 is a limited edition candle that Bath & Body Works released for Black Friday. Yeah, I know, what’s with all these sneaky little limited edition candle releases lately? First Pumpkin Carving now White Barn Christmas!

The fragrance is described as a way to celebrate the season with comfort and joy, a jubilant fragrance of sugared pine, sweet green balsam, crisp apple and smoked firewood.

Sadly, it’s disappeared from the site….! However, I’ve come across a variety of Evil-bay shops selling it (with free shipping) for as little as $10 so if you missed out on it you might want to snatch it up. I don’t really like it…! I’m not much for green, Christmas-y tree scents and this has all that.

I have to admit lately though I’m on this kick for anything mixed with apple and Holiday greens! Like Yankee Candle Apple Wreath is making my world go right round baby! Loves it.

Just thought I’d throw this up though for anyone who enjoys greener Holiday scents as you might have missed this or not known about it until this post.

Did you purchase it?

Do share!

What are your fav Slakin & Co. Candles from Holiday 2012 so far?

I kinda dig Cinnamon Frosting even though it’s a tad artificial!

Bare Minerals Simply Irresistible Nine Piece Collection

Bare Minerals Simply Irresistible is a new 9 Piece Color Collection for Eyes, Lips, and Cheeks for Holiday 2012. If you’re more of a traditionalist and aren’t really loving all the Ready pressed products that BE has recently been releasing you’ll absolutely love this set.

This takes us back to Bare Minerals as we originally know them, their loose format. The Simply Irresistible set contains essentials for a complete holiday look (or two, or three…) for as little as $49. Quite the bargain! Plus it has a must have shade of blush that you can’t pass up on if you love Bare Minerals Fruit Cocktail.

Bliss Lean Machine Vacuum Massager

Bliss Lean Machine Vacuum Massager

It’s Bliss’s Lean Mean fat fighting machine vacuum. Like the George Foreman Grill this vacuum cuts the fat, cuts the oil, and trims the blubber…

I totes made all that up in a weak attempt to do a great infomercial for you!

What’s the Lean Machine Vacuum Massager really do?

It’s the only spa-powered system that combines a high-tech vacuum massager and a skin-firming cream to help smooth and tone skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It gives your legs and butt a more contoured look. *nods* Really….maybe, kinda, sorta…

I just don’t have the time to dedicated to such a machine. Imagine how horrifying it would be if your boyfriend or husband walked into the bathroom as you were vacuuming your cellulite?

How the hell do you explain that one pray tell?

Available now at Nordstrom.
