5th Day of Christmas

On the 5th day of Christmas, my mother sent me one of my absolutely favorite things- the oh so fabulous La Mer. I will swear up and down on the magical powers of this cream and am mildly obsessed. Though it is quite expensive, a little dab goes a long way. If you are lucky enough to use this cream or have a truly fabulous mother who sends you it via the mail, you know what I am talking about.

As you can see, my dog Maybelle is keenly interested in the box.

Half the fun for me is opening the box and checking out the random loot that Neiman's sends along with La Mer. This time, I got a sample of the new Prada perfume, a sample of a very interesting smelling Jo Malone fragrance and some Trish McEvoy cleanser.

Like this idea? Along the same lines, the following are some suggestions for cream that make great gifts:

This fabulous oil Olio Lusso is a blend of arnica, neroli, argan, sunflower, calendula oils (plus more!) that provide antioxidant and antibacterial benefits to moisturize and protect skin. The scent of the oil is tropical Jasmine flower. You can buy it here at one of my favorite shops.

This luxuriously scented lotion is a fabulous everyday indulgence that can be purchased here.

I recently had a facial, and I am now devoted to an organic line of skin products. "Naturopathica!" I love creams, but have very sensitive skin so I tread lightly. Love la mer but it is quite expensive, so a tiny dab does wonders. I painted for la mer cream, it was a barter.

Oh I will have to look into Naturopathica products, sounds fantastic! Sounds to me like a great barter, so wish that I could paint!

Have not tried Le Mer but have heard fabulous things. The naturopathica sounds interesting as well.... I too have sensitive skin and get nervous about switching around. But I'm not sure I've found anything I'm head over heels in love with either, so there you go!

I`ve been wanting to try Olio Lusso - but haven`t been able to see it in person and was a little hesitant to shell out the money blindly. Have you tried it? I`d love to know what you thought
