I know I promised last week’s was my last holiday gift guide post. But some online browsing let to a couple more finds. They were just too good. And we still have time to get these under the tree!
I admit to being a huge Katie Holmes fan, so I am naturally lusting after the Alterna Haircare “Katie’s Favorites” Travel Set. As co-owner, Katie knows her stuff. These items were handpicked by Katie herself: Caviar Replenishing Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, Bamboo Smooth Kendi Pure Treatment Oil, and Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Dry Shampoo.
It is difficult to not be thrilled by a set of wearable lip glosses. bareMinerals ‘Marvelous Moxie Show Me the Shimmer’ Lipgloss Set has six shimmery glosses in a range of shades. The minty finish is invigorating and the formula hydrates while adding a sheer wash of color.
Want to up your shower game? Don’t miss you on bliss holiday suds + butter sets. Always adorably cheeky, there are three holiday themed options:
- wishing you the ‘zest’ – includes full size bottles of the ever-popular lemon + sage body butter (6.7 oz.) and soapy suds (16 oz.) along with a yellow shower pouf
- a ‘citrus’ carol – a blood orange + white pepper duo of soapy suds (16 oz.) and body butter (6.7 oz.) packed with an orange shower pouf
- happy ‘aloe’-days – featuring the new grapefruit + aloe duo including grapefruit + aloe soapy suds (16 oz.) and body butter (6.7 oz.) along with a pink shower pouf
Bonus! These are currently on sale at Nordstrom.
Do you have a beauty loving Francophile on your list? Look no further than CARGO Let’s Meet in Paris Holiday Kit. The kit contains: NEW Red Essential Lip Color, NEW Travel Size HD Lip Primer, NEW Swimmables Eye Pencil in Black Sea Travel Size Reverse Lip liner, and TexasLash Mascara. A great chance to try some of CARGO’s iconic products!
diptyque’s Set of 10 Candles, exclusive to Nordstrom, is high on my list to finally narrow down a favorite diptyque scent. Included are their iconic scents, two signature scents created each decade of the company’s history.
First reviewed here, the Emily & Tony Aromatherapy Massage Oil Candles are totally unique. When hot, the candle transforms into a moisturizer – just scoop out melted wax and apply to skin. The soy and oil formula is perfectly warm and soothes aches and pains and relaxes during this hectic holiday season. While they are designed for a little naughtiness, I love using mine on a cold evening just all on my own. Available in: Créme de Vanille, Coco and Fougere.
L’Occitane ‘Hand Creams of Provence’ Set has long been one of my favorite gifts to give. The varied scents, including best seller – Shea Butter – suits every preference and mood. And the nourishing formula really does heal dry, winter skin.
Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case will delight both those new to Urban Decay and devotee. This would be especially handy during holiday travel. The two-tired case has all you need. The first tier contains five shades of eye shadows, a lip gloss and eye pencil. The lower tier contains two blushes and a highlighter. Both tiers have a mirror. Perfect to throw in a clutch too!
I haven’t always been the biggest philosophy fan, but I am really coming around. Their seasonal bath and body sets are crowd pleasers. The ‘peace on earth’ duo has a soothing orchid scent and conjures the true spirit of the season. And bonus points for the shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath multi-tasker.
