Happy Thanksgiving! While the turkey's cooking, let's talk Christmas things, shall we?
Loccitane really upped their gift set game this year - the candy colored packaging with gold accents is so so pretty! I've never been a huge Loccitane fan but my boyfriend's mom loves their stuff and has gifted me several items over the years. She surprised me with an early Christmas gift set which got me very excited, mainly because it includes the Loccitane Almond Shower Oil - probably the number one Loccitane product on my wishlist - plus a mini Almond Hand Cream. Immediately tried both, love both. I was smitten with the Almond Milk Concentrate in the summer so I'm very happy to have the decadent almond scent back in my life again.
Also in the set - the Neroli & Orchidee Body Milk & Eau de Toilette, the Creme de Douche Ultra Rich Shower Cream, and their infamous Precious Cream. I've yet to try these but can definitely see myself enjoying the shower cream since Loccitane bath and body products seem to always hit the spot for me. Definitely a set to consider if you want to sample some of Loccitane's best sellers, or for the girl who loves pamper nights.
Speaking of Christmas things, where is your Roasted Chestnuts Candle, Laura Mercier? *beats self up for not stocking up last year* The Laura Mercier Roasted Chestnuts candle is probably my favorite Christmas candle, ever, but I can't seem to find it anywhere this year. Instead I bought my first Diptyque candle in Resine, a sweet yet fresh pine scent. Good throw, pretty packaging, but I'm not crazy about it. Mine sadly didn't burn evenly, which I think is quite unacceptable for a candle of this price. I also slightly regret not choosing Epice instead, the spicier variation. I think that miiiight resemble Roasted Chestnuts a bit more. *sniff*
I can't promise there won't be more Christmas Things to come, especially since I've heard there's some serious gorgeousness going on at the NARS counter...
