I can’t believe we are halfway through the 12 Days of Christmas! Today I thought I’d share my favorite holiday beauty products that I look forward to using during this special time of year. Here they are in no particular order. 🙂
I. Love. This. Lotion. I put this on my hands and elbows every single night before bed and breathe deeply. The scent is so relaxing. The lotion isn’t too thick, but it is very moisturizing. The bad news is that it is currently sold out. I am going to savor every last drop and pray for a restock!
I love this lip gloss! Isn’t the name so festive? The shade is a deep burgundy with little gold flecks. It is very pigmented for a gloss and looks so sophisticated. If you’re not into the bright red lip trend, I can definitely recommend this!
Okay, everyone knows this scent. It is SUCH a classic (along with Winter Candy Apple and Vanilla Bean Noel.) I look forward to using my Bath and Body Works holiday products every single year! I have been using them for at least 10 years. (How is that possible???) Now that I am older, Twisted Peppermint has become my favorite. I love the super clean feeling the body wash gives me after a nice, warm shower. The body lotion leaves my skin smelling amazing and also a little bit tingly! I have no idea HOW, but it seems to be that Bath and Body Works didn’t release these two products this year – only an Ultra Shea Body Cream, (which I am sure is lovely.) Thankfully, I had some extra from last year. I hope they bring Twisted Peppermint back next year!
Mmm, Philosophy makes some of the best flavored lipglosses! My mom used to get these for me and my sister every single year. I love Peppermint Stick because, like the body lotion I just mentioned, it gives your lips a tingling feeling and just looks so pretty sitting on my makeup table. Pomegranate in a Pear Tree is great because it’s clear with just a little bit of sparkle. I love to wear it as a lipstick topper!
Whenever I use this eyeliner, I immediately think of New Year’s Eve. The name and the shade are just so festive. It is a gorgeous soft gold shimmer liner, and it is so versatile. I love to use it to highlight my inner corner and brow bone. You can also use it as a cream eyeshadow all over the lid!

Today’s tea and candle were both sooo lovely! The tea, Roses are Red, is a blend of rose, jasmine, and lavender. It smells so relaxing! I am currently burning the Christmas Wreath candle, and it smells great with balsam, cedar, citrus, and holly berry. 🙂 Don’t forget to stop by my mom’s blog as well as her friend Danielle’s to see their 12 Days of Christmas posts!
