Last Minute Fragrant Bath & Body Gifts for the Holidays

Press Sample / Purchased / Affiliate Links

The Makeup Wars! Team wanted to help you brainstorm last minute holiday gifts, and I decided to select fragrant bath and body products for the people on your list who love fragrances.

Kai Bathing Bubbles ($29.00 for 12 oz. from Barneys New York, Nordstrom, RevolveCult BeautyDermstore and Anthropologie): Kai's nourishing bubble bath has the wonderful aroma of fresh gardenias and white exotic flowers, for which Kai is known, and it leaves the skin soft, supple and hydrated. It is so luxurious to soak in this fetching scent.
Kai Perfume Oil ($48.00 for oz. from Barneys New York, Nordstrom, Beautyhabit, Revolve, Cult Beauty, Dermstore and Anthropologie): Kai's intoxicating perfume oil is a blend of fresh gardenias and white exotic flowers made with essential oils in a convenient and easy to use roll-on vial.

Kai is a fresh, clean, and sexy smelling floral. The blend of gardenias and white exotic flowers strikes the perfect balance, and the white flowers offset any sharpness that gardenia can have on its own. The scent lingers throughout the day and is so lovely that I can't stop smelling my wrist while wearing it.

Kai products are paraben, sulfate, phthalate free, cruelty free, and are not tested on animals. The packaging is recyclable. Made in the USA.
Kai Eau de Parfum ($76.00 for oz. from Barneys New York, Nordstrom, Beautyhabit, Revolve, Cult Beauty, Dermstore and Anthropologie): The Kai Eau de Parfum is a less concentrated version of the perfume oil, but it lacks the longevity. I prefer to layer the two together to make the aroma both richer and longer lasting. This is my second bottle, and definitely not my last.
Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Roller Ball ($24.50- $33.00 from BeautyhabitAromatherapy AssociatesLook Fantastic, Mankind, HQ Hair, Beauty Expert and Coggles): This luxury aromatherapy roll on is a blend of essential oils such as Cardamom, Frankincense and Clary Sage that are supposed to, "give you a moment to reflect and restore positivity." I love the way that it smells, and its aroma puts me in a particularly good mood. It's the perfect size to stow in your handbag.
Kneipp Bath Bar Soft Skin Almond Blossom ($5.00 from Kneipp): This wonderfully aromatic bath bar is ultra gentle, non-stripping and it never dries out the skin. The nourishing plant-based formula and almond oil is emollient enough that I have shaved my underarms and legs with great results!

Kneipp Bath Oil Beauty Secret Argan & Marula ($22.00 for 3.38 oz. from Kneipp): Kneipp makes the most amazing bath oils, and they leave the skin so soft, supple and hydrated, but without leaving it greasy. In addition to the fantastic benefits for the skin,  the warm and creamy aroma is a treat to the senses.

Kneipp Body Oil Restoring Safflower & Olive ($22.00 for 3.38 oz. from Kneipp): This is an ultra rich, and yet exceedingly lightweight and fast absorbing body oil that leaves skin deeply moisturized, indescribably soft, supple and luminous. It has a very pleasant faint aroma with the slightest citrus notes.

Kneipp Body Oil Soft Skin Almond Blossom ($122.00 for 3.38 oz. from Kneipp): This lightweight, and fast absorbing, body oil intensely nourishes and hydrates the skin and leaves it soft, supple and luminous. The Vitamin E, Argan Oil and Sunflower Oil serve as a nutrient-rich base for this delectably aromatic floral treat for the senses and the skin.

Kneipp Bubbling Mineral Bath Salt Relax Iris & Geranium ($5.00 for 2.82 oz. from Kneipp): I haven't yet tried this packet, but I am excited to try it, and can't wait to smell it! According to Kneipp, the "valuable iris extract and natural essential oil of geranium provides the body and mind with a sense of well-being. Nourishing oil prevents your skin from drying out."

    1. Me too! Yes, I need to find a store that sells Kneipp as well! It's easy to order online, but that's not the same as getting to smell them in person!
