Last Minute Body Care Gift Guide & Giveaway

Tis the season to be merry! But between the holiday parties, all of those ugly sweater get-togethers, gift wrapping and, of course, decorating, it can be hard to get all of your shopping done. With all of those deadlines to meet, last minute gifting is always inevitable. We found a few presents that look anything but last minute (we’re giving away the items marked with an asterisk):


Origins Just Ginger Set*($42.50)

Origins has made gift giving easier than dialing for pizza this year. This very cool Facebook App is technically a sleek, virtual wish list. We’re especially in love with the idea of gingering ourselves this winter (the Just Ginger gift box comes beautifully packaged, with a full-size Ginger Souffle whipped body cream, an Incredible Spreadable ginger body scrub that we’re addicted to, and a Ginger Essence Skin scent. Oh, we also love the playful yet functional cotton waffle body puff).

The Body Shop $100 Gift Assortment *

The Body Shop really knows how to take care of you this season in this comprehensive gift assortment that includes 11 favorites: Shea Lip Butter, Shea Body Butter, Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream, Hemp Hand cream, Peppermint Foot Lotion, Olive Shower Gel, Nutriganics Smoothing Serum, Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover, Rainforest Shine Shampoo & Conditioner and a Deep Sleep Pillow Mist.

We are giving away an assortment of holiday items to one winner, valued at $100 (may not be exact as the list above).


Crabtree & Evelyn Seven Seas Bath Salts ($35)

A unique blend of mineral-rich salts will detox your skin. There’s also lifting essential oils (eucalyptus & lime) to help clarity and focus.

Skin Botanica Nighty Night Bath Essence ($15.80)

Skin Botanica’s Erbaviva Nighty Night Bath Essence makes an ideal stocking stuffer. It’s soothing blend of chamomile and lavender is a stress antidote for the nervous wreck…er, bath belle.


LaLicious Body Oils ($24)

Only from LaLicious could come something so luscious(!) as these body oils. The perfect stocking stuffer or under the tree treat, these divine scented oils banish winter dryness; we recommend the tingly peppermint or the divine coconut cream.

Yum Moisturizing Body Scrub ($8)


Me Bath Shower Sherbet in “Gotta Have it Pomegranate” ($28)

Ideal for any sweet tooth, ME! Bath’s mouthwatering Shower Sherbet is an effective, delicious sugar scrub that’s practically skin dessert.


LUSH Whoosh Icy Citrus Shower Jelly ($10.95)

All of those holiday parties can really take their toll on a girl! Give the gift of focus with this icy citrus shower jelly from Lush– a good cure for any morning after sluggishness.


EOS (Evolution of Smooth) Lip Balm* $3.29 each

We can’t get enough of these ping-pong size lip balms: they come in summer fruit flavors and have a convenient twist-off cap. Plus, they look so mod! Who could resist? and we’re giving away FIVE of them to a lucky winner.
