After Thanksgiving dinner, many people are often calorie counting and resign to sit back salivating as they watch their friends and family dig into yummy desserts. But why? It’s the only food-themed holiday, and it only comes around once a year, so give yourself a pass. But, for those of you who refuse, I’ve gathered a list of Thanksgiving dessert inspired beauty products you can indulge in without the worry of expanding your waistline.
Apple Pie Soap Slice, $8.50 - These soaps look just like a real slice of apple pie. pie and smell like sweet crisp apples and cinnamon. Each slice comes in a mini bakery box and tied with a bow.
Hempz Treats Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake Lip Shine, $10.00 - This lip gloss contains a gourmet blend of natural honey and vanilla extracts, and nothing says, “Thanksgiving,” better than a combination of pecan and pumpkin.
Body & Hair Icing, Frosted Carrot Cake, $16.00 – The Frosted Carrot Cake scent is described as Warm Spice Cake topped with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Solid Lotion Bar Sticks in Banana Nut Bread, $14.99. The scent is described as “nutty and buttery with sweet ripened bananas.”
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I can’t help but to begin fantasizing about all the yummy foods that will be laid before me. During Thanksgiving dinner, I skip the main course and go straight to the goodies: the side dishes and dessert…yum! Here are some beauty products inspired by Thanksgiving side dishes and desserts, you might want to try…just be sure not to add them onto your plate
Cranberry Sauce – What’s a Thanksgiving meal without cranberry sauce? Sweet and salty cranberry jelly is the perfect accompaniment to turkey, and now, your hands. I adore this mini Winter Cranberry hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works.
Sweet potatoes – I love the taste of creamy, nutmeg-seasoned sweet potatoes. In my house, sweet potatoes aren’t complete unless they are topped with soft, chunky marshmallows. Just the thought of it, is making my mouth water, which is why I love the idea of a sweet potato flavored lip balm.
Pumpkin Pie – Perhaps the food that is most synonymous with Thanksgiving, other than turkey, is pumpkin pie. No Thanksgiving meal wouldn’t be complete without the spice-infused dessert, and now you can take a shower with it…well, not an actual pie, but when you’re lathering on this Spiced Pumpkin Bath & Shower Gel from The Body Shop, you will swear a pie is baking in your oven.
Pecan Pie – Nothing beats the smell of pecans smothered in a sweet butter sauce and baked to perfection, so why wouldn’t you want to rub that decadence onto your body? These pecan pie sugar scrubs are infused with maple syrup, and can be used as a skin exfoliator, or as a 1 minute facial.
