This is my Christmas body lotion. I use this and the shower gel from this scent range throughout the month of December every year and the smell reminds me of Christmas and yes, it is magical (insert daily reminder about how much I love Christmas). I was looking through my cupboard for a body lotion to use this month and I felt like this old favourite needed to be dusted off and given a new life for what I decided would be my very own ‘Christmas in July’. I don’t like thick body lotions, so I really like these lightweight Bath & Body Works lotions and the formula seems to work well on my skin. What I mostly love about this is the smell. THE SMELL. The smell of this lotion is like heaven in a bottle. I’m pretty sure that it would be too sickly sweet for a lot of people, but for me it’s like delicious pepperminty crack. I can’t get enough, and the scent of the lotion lingers on the skin long after application which is great until I realise that I’ve been subconsciously sniffing my own arm for unknown lengths of time in a public place. Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion retails for $11 USD and is available seasonally from Bath & Body Works. Please note that I use the parcel forwarding service Hop Shop Go to buy things from Bath & Body Works, but this particular lotion was gifted to me by my family from the States.
A fitting end to Summer, with my February favourites all bright and shiny and fresh. I used these products consistently throughout the month of February, and now I’m ready for the cooler months to start settling in so I can dig out my favourite Autumn/Winter products. My favourites in February were: Bath + Body Works Aruba Coconut Body Lotion, MAC Face & Body Foundation in N1, MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study, Bloom Nail Polish in Flamingo Sands & CO Bigelow Blueberry Rose Salve.
December is always a busy month, what with me being COMPLETELY F*CKING OBSESSED WITH CHRISTMAS and all. I love Christmas, just ask anyone in my life and they will no doubt regale you with tales of how I baked them cookies and made them listen to that one Bing Crosby Christmas album three thousand times. Due to me being so busy with Christmas, I tend to keep things in my routine pretty simple and use less of a variety when it comes to beauty products than I normally would. My most reached for products in December were: Bath + Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion (I use this exclusively in December so now it will always remind me of Christmas… perfect), Muppets for OPI ‘Gettin Miss Piggy With It’ Polish (this makes for a great Christmas nail when layered over OPI Red), Bloom Lip Gloss in Shine, MAC Eyeshadow in Orb & Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso aka the most perfect blush to exist, ever.
I’m a little bit late with my favourites this month, but late is better than never right? (right.) My most reached for products in the month of October were: Bath + Body Works Exotic Coconut Body Splash, Face of Australia Pressed Powder in Bronze, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Siren & Essie Nail Polish in Pink Parka.
As I seem to have a bit of trouble sticking to and completing a Project 10 Pan, I’ve decided to take a different approach. I am now attempting to either finish up 3 products and buy 1, or finish up 6 products and buy 3. This is my first tally with a Bath + Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Foaming Hand Soap, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Oil and Flourish Bath & Body Almond Milk Perfume Oil finished and a St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Body Lotion purchased.
