Holiday Gift Guide: Elemis Nourishing Milk Bath and Nourishing Shower Cream

If you want to get bath/shower products for your family and friends fir Christmas holidays, I would highly recommend investing in Elemis Nourishing Milk Bath (£39.90 /$70) and Elemis Nourishing Shower Cream (£20.50/$35).

Both products don’t come cheap but they are some of the best products on the market.  I am absolutely obsessed with both, they smell divine and leave your skin smooth and nourished. I could go on and on.. But you can actually read more about the bath cream here and shower cream here.

But the great news is that now you can save a lot of money by getting Elemis gift sets. I would highly recommend

Want It: Clarins Gorgeous Getaways Face and Body Essentials Collection

I have bought two Clarins sets recently, one with lip glosses and balms and the other one with skin care. But there is one more set that I would love to get – Clarins Gorgeous Getaways Face and Body Essentials Collection.

I’ve been wanting to try their Beauty Flash Balm for a long time already. It retails  for £21.50. But here you can get Beauty Flash Balm, five  more products and a makeup bag for £44 only. And you can never have too many foot, hands or body creams.  Plus this makeup bag would be a great one for travelling I assume.

Here is what you get:

  • Beauty Flash Balm (50ml)
  • Hand and Nail Treatment Cream (100ml)
  • One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser (75ml)
  • Moisture-Rich Body Lotion (100ml)
  • Foot Beauty Treatment Cream (30ml)
  • HydraQuench Cream (15ml)

The shades are:

  • Victoria – deep cherry
  • South Molton Street – natural pink
  • Jermyn Street – perfect taupe
  • Porchester Square – mushroom nude
  • The Thames – classic grey
  • Westferry Circus – delicious peach
  • Belgrave Place – glossy violet

  • Draycott Terrace – warm pink
  • Symons Street – metallic teal
  • Lanesborough Place – liquid gold
  • Electric Avenue – silver glitter

Let me remind you that single Nails Inc nail polish (10 ml) is £11. So, in my opinion, this is an amazing deal! My faves have to be  Victoria,  St James, The Bolton’s and Westferry Circus. But actually others are fab, too!
