As the holidays quickly approach I realize how unprepared I am. Thanksgiving is almost two weeks away, Christmas is 6 weeks away, and I have both parents birthdays to celebrate a few days before Christmas. Thanks to my local neighborhood stores in Edgewater, NJ who keep all sorts of holiday newness, gifts, and goodies stocked on the shelves. So shopping this season should be quick and easy!
Today I went on my weekly visit to Trader Joe’s and noticed their New 12 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar gift set. After holding up a line of local shoppers shopping for their weekend shopping list, here I am falling in love with the travel sizes and newness all in one package. I love Trader Joe’s beauty for the price and how well my skin reacts to their products. I felt the $19.99 was a bit steep for the product size and amount of products. However, the packaging makes it a great gift for teachers, college students, or secret Santa gifts.
Here’s what’s inside:
Peel-Off Charcoal Mask 0.5 oz
Exfoliating Sugar Cube
Rose Facial Oil 0.33 oz
Winter Citrus Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream 0.5 oz
Enrich Moisturizing Facial Lotion 1oz
Coconut Body Butter 1oz
No. 3 Formula Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash 1 oz
Cranberry Cider Summer Body Wash 1 oz
Brown Sugar Body Scrub 1 oz
Warm Vanilla Body Butter 1 oz
Blueberry & Acai Facial Scrub 0.5 oz
Pomegranate Moisturizing Lip Balm 0.13 oz
From the list the new products I noticed are the Charcoal Mask, Winter Citrus Hand Cream, Cranberry Cider Body Wash, and Pomegranate Lip Balm. These are all goodies that's worth buying just to try them out. I love that the Facial scrub comes in a tube which makes it easy for travel. The full size comes in a jar and the glass jar is too heavy for my travel preferences. With each product being under 3 oz this is certainly TSA friendly and good for upcoming holiday travels. I'll keep you posted on my finds. Make sure to follow me in Instagram at @GoGlamGirl for more beauty and travel tips.
Happy holiday shopping!
