About Face: Snag These Holidays Items While You Still Can


Lush Dove_BodyShop_YankeeCandle_ChesapeakeFamilyAboutFace+ Festive Soaps, Body Washes, and Lip Balms
(first photo). I used to be a shower gel purist, but LUSH soaps have convered met, and rapidly. Their special items are both super-powerful and super-pretty, like the rugged Coalface Cleanser, with charcoal and sandalwood ($12.95, LUSH), and Snow Globe soap, with lemon and grapefruit ($7.95, LUSH). And who could ignore that ice-blue shade? For something super-moisturizing, stock up on Dove Winter Care Beauty Bars, which is 25 percent moisturizer and will help you battle dry winter skin. No more roughness or flaking, which is always nice ($9.19 for an eight-pack, Target). But if you’re still sticking to body wash, stay in the holiday season with The Body Shop Spiced Pumpkin Bath & Shower Gel, which smells just like homemade pumpkin pie. Just don’t snack too much as a result (available at The Body Shop). The same goes for Yankee Candle Flavored Lip Balms, which come in a number of different flavors like Vanilla Cupcake and Spiced Pumpkin—protective and tasty (about $3, various Amazon retailers). Yes, this is the same company that makes all those candles, but no, they do not taste like scented wax. Trust me.
