With a tube for each of the 12 days of Christmas, the Korres Never Too Many Holiday Gift Set ($40) just might be the answer to a procrastinator’s prayers.
For Korres, considering their typical prices, it’s a limited edition budgetary bonanza (breaks down to just $3.35 per bottle).
You get a dozen travel-friendly 1.69-oz bottles of their shower gels and accompanying body butters in the following fragrances — Jasmine, Melon, Mint, Lemon Basil, Guava and Clementine Orange.
All of the scents are light and not overly synthetic, smelling to me just like the real things. I like all six of them, but I’m kinda stuck on Jasmine… I think it’s my favorite one.
Now, the main packaging probably won’t win any awards for its design (just a transparent plastic box with a few white snowflakes sprinkled around), but I think the bottles are kinda cute.
Don’t they look artsy and creative?
About the shower gels, I’m a fan, but the body butters — ooh, baby! These body butters take the cake! Their light, lotion-like texture absorbs quickly without leaving any yucky greasiness behind, yet they still moisturize like monsters, keeping my Saraha-dry shins ash-free for hours.
Holiday bargain hunters, consider divvying up the 12 items in the set for use as stocking stuffers or gifts for the members of
my your weekly crazy cat lady support group. Just drop one of these into a lil’ gift bag with some colored tissue and a holiday card.
Or, just keep the whole set for yourself (ha!) and rock a different scent six of the seven days of the week. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Fun at Sephora
Earlier today I fooled around with the stuff I picked up at Sephora yesterday… It was the last weekend of my $15 VIB gift certificate (are you a member? It’s free to join).
I also needed a new bottle of Clinique Mild Exfoliator Toner (my favorite!).
As usual, a couple other things caught my eye…
Can’t wait to try Clinique Take the Day Off Balm. I’ve heard it’s non-drying (a must for cold weather) and fabulous at removing long-wearing makeup.
I just hope it’s half as good as the purple jar is cute.
Now that the day’s winding down, how was yours? Smooth sailing? I hope your week got off to a positive start.
