After Bath Silk Powder

When I was a girl my Grandmother often gifted me the fancy toiletries she’d acquired on her travels.

Candy Cane Body Lotion

This thick and luxurious body lotion makes a lovely Christmas gift. It leaves the skin soft and slightly peppermint scented, and if you’re looking for a bit of an extra festive hint, you can add a touch of mica for some holiday shimmer.
