I know I’m an “adult” now, but I still can’t help feeling super Christmassy! I’m like a magpie being drawn to all the glitter and tinsel! I crave Gingerbread Hot Chocolate and Mince Pies and I’ve already wacked out Love Actually over a warm cup of tea! With December in full swing, I feel I am now justified in cooing over the latest sparkly nail varnishes, lusting after the gorgeous indulgent treats that are popping up all over the high street and swooning at the deliciously festive fragrances that are spilling out of all the shops.
So… here are just some of my favourite Christmas products to get me in a festive mood!! First up is Barry M’s glitter nail polish trio, which comes in three beautiful shades: a dusky rose gold, a shimmering silver and a warm goldy/bronze colour. All three shades would add as bit of sparkle to your winter wardrobe and complete any look perfectly! Plus at £8.00 from stockists such as River Island, they work out at under £3 each!
Next up is Lush’s “The Melting Snowman Bath Melt” which smells good enough to eat! “Exquisitely fragranced with Hot Toddy” Lush describe this product as “a favourite blend from Christmas past containing cinnamon, clove, patchouli, benzoin, lime and sweet wild orange oils”. Made up of “water softening bicarb of soda, cocoa butter and shea butter, when this wonderful little treat becomes warm and finally melts away, he fizzes those wonderful butters through your bathwater, leaving you soft and moisturised. What a way to go!”
Of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without a bright, berry lip shade, and this year my vote goes to M.A.C’s Ruby Woo, a deep sultry rouge lipstick that has “kissmas” written all over it… Although at £14 maybe it’s best to put it on your wish list?
Philosophy are winning the Christmas crown this year for me with their delicious sugary scents such as the “Candy Cane Stocking Stuffer” complete with a 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel  and bubble bath, as well as a handy, travel-sized candy cane flavoured lipgloss, this is Christmas with all the trimmings! But if sweet minty scents are not your cup of Christmas tea, then why not try their “Cinnamon Buns shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath” to “experience the joy of this decadent indulgence 100% guilt and calorie free.” Finally, if you love to feel cosy by the fireside, why not invest in a Yankee Christmas Eve Candle (currently reduced to £19.95 from £33.98 on amazon.co.uk for a large jar). They smell like the epitome of Christmas and are a real indulgence… *drool*…
So get down to town and have a look around for some Christmas treats and festive fun, after all “tis the season to be jolly!” Merry Christmas everyone!
