2. The Body Shop Bath Lily (found at The Body Shop for $3.00)
Turn a bath into an exfoliation celebration with the ultra-fine weave of The Body Shop’s Bath Lily. It gentle lifts away dead skin, leaving your skin feeling refreshed. With the dead skin out of the way, it’s easier for your body lotion to properly moisturize your skin.

This line has body scrubs, body mists, AND lotions in delicious scents: Juicy Grapefruit, Coconut Water, Mango Papaya, and Vanilla Bean.

4. Yes To Paper Masks (found at Target for $2.49)
Sheet masks are quick, easy, and effective. Pop the wet, paper-towel-like mask onto your face, and let the skin nourishing ingredients go to work. Yes To makes masks to suit different skincare needs like hydration, detox, and brightening. If you don’t know a person’s skincare needs, give tidings of comfort and joy with the Yes To Cotton Comforting Paper Mask.
5. VASELINE Lip Therapy ROSY LIPS (found at Target for $3.49)
By popular demand, there’s a new twist on Vaseline’s classic formula. Rosy Lips is enriched with wine grape extract to help hydrate lips and it has a lovely sheer pink tint. Use it before bed and wake up with soft, hydrated lips or use it to add shine to your favorite lip color. The adorable tin, light scent and hint of flavor are an extra treat. “Rose’ all day,” as they say. Cheers!
Spoil a friend with any or all of these items, without spending a fortune. Give a body scrub, lotion and mist from You Are Amazing. Or an assortment of facial masks from Yes To. Mix-and-match items to create the perfect gift.
Instead of running around picking up last minute gifts, shop this list and you’ll be relaxing at home this year. Because there’s no place like home for the holidays.
