LUSH COSMETICS | HOLIDAY 2007 GIFTS

CHRISTMAS UNWRAPPED!
We all love that moment when we finally get to unwrap our Christmas presents and find out what’s inside – but once we’re done unwrapping, we’re left with a pile of unwanted gift boxes, decorations and gift wrap that is hastily thrown away. Here at LUSH we have the environmentally friendly alternative to Christmas gifts. Not only can loved ones be treated to deliciously fresh handmade cosmetics, but all of our festive gifts are lovingly wrapped by the LUSH elves using 100% recycled paper and prettily tied with recycled paper ribbons — so you can give that amazing present and help save the planet. For the first time this year we offer a completely green gift option and a charity gift option, so if you’re looking for that special luxury gift, stocking filler or secret Santa, check out LUSH’s eco-friendly gifts that are all wrapped up, ready and waiting to give to that lucky person.

Keep reading for our review on the “Happy Treats!” gift, plus find out what to give to who with LUSH’s Holiday Gift Guide!

La Prairie, a name synonymous with luxury, reinvents utter indulgence, bringing the ultimate in luxury to unprecedented heights with Skin Caviar Luxe Cream. When only the utmost in luxury will do, La Prairie offers the answer: the supremely elegant experience of lifting and firming in a limited-edition size jar, when a little is simply not enough.

Your senses feel caressed by an extravagant gift of energy and moisture, beyond ordinary luxury into the ultimate Caviar experience. This experience allows lifted, illuminated satin to replace the tired skin of moments ago. 5.2 oz.

Now, I know La Prairie is a pricey skincare line; one most mortals cannot afford to try nor fall in love with. This is a special holiday edition size (5.2 oz), and the price tag? Oh, a mere $900.00! So let me ask you dear readers, have any of you tried La Prairie’s products? What was your experience? I keep thinking for $900.00, why don’t I save up for a face lift? Botox?

Overall, the palettes offer a little something for everybody, which I think is their ultimate purpose. MAC addicts are never as impressed with Holiday as the typical makeup consumer, who is far less knowledgeable on what products have come out, and they probably don’t own half the MAC store either (!). Palettes offer consumers a chance to pick up several shadows in an organized palette for $6 an eyeshadow (you know, a good deal!), and they also make excellent gifts for those who are not so beauty-addicted. The brush sets are the same way–take MAC brushes for a test drive without breaking the bank. Brush sets are usually machine-made versus man-made, but they are still quality brushes that are perfect for budget beauty mavens as well as for holiday travel.
