rosie’s 12 days of blogmas: day 3

it’s beginning to smell a lot like christmas…

One thing that I love about Christmas is that you start to associate different smells and tastes with the holiday. I’m always reminded of Christmas when I taste summer berries or smell peppermint. This day of my Blogmas challenge, I’m going to write about the soaps and cosmetics I own that are decidedly Christmas scented.


Beauticology products always smell absolutely delicious – here I have my Sweet Gingerbread body wash, which is one of my favourites. It has a very nice gingerbread scent, and is this shimmering pale gold colour that looks really lovely.

There’s also the Hot Chocolate lip butter, which smells exactly like hot chocolate! It’s a lovely clear lip gloss that makes your lips feel really soft. It’s amazing how much these products smell like the real thing – kind of makes me hungry…


Here I have another Beauticology product – Creamy Marshmallow Frosting body butter. It smells as good as it sounds; if you’ve ever wanted to smell like marshmallow frosting, this is definitely the lotion for you!

Another favourite of mine is the Weleda pomegranate body lotion, made from real organically grown pomegranates. Needless to say, it too smells fantastic. Pomegranates have such a summery scent that I can’t help but think of Christmas when I smell them! (Just to clarify, I live in New Zealand, so my Christmases are in the summer.) This lotion in particular is really good, because it makes your skin feel really soft, and it doesn’t make your skin feel oily the way some lotions do. Nice 🙂

I’m going to be using these lotions and soaps a lot this December! If you have any smells that you associate with Christmas, please leave a comment below and tell me about them.
