Treat your body and soul to some luxurious spa products this winter. It’s the one thing next to a steamy mug of hot chocolate that actually make a harsh snowy blizzard look inviting.

Frasier Fir Collection from Thymes Essentials

The Christmas season might be behind us but why not continue the holiday spirit? The giant-sized muli-wick Frasier Fir Candle from Thymes Essentials is like Christmas in a big frosted glass bowl. Inhale the wintry scent of crisp Siberian Fir needles, heartening cedarwood and relaxing sandalwood emanating from this candle and other products like soap and room diffusers from the Thymes Frasier Fir collection. Coming back from a day on the slopes never smelled so good! Visit

Art of Shaving

Your man may act all tough but he, too, is suffering through this cold weather. That dry winter air is wreaking havoc on his complexion! To the rescue is the 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave™. This full size kit offers all the essentials to guarantee optimal shaving results while relieving and preventing ingrown hairs, razor burn, tough beard and sensitive skin. The Full Size Kit includes The Art of Shaving’s hypoallergenic, aromatherapy-based Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream and After-Shave Balm, as well as a handcrafted Pure Badger Shaving Brush. The spa never looked so masculine! Visit

Beau Bain

If you’re the type of person who loves to lie back in a hot, fragrant, bubbly, luxurious bath, then treat yourself to Beau Bain’s new Bath Bombs. Choose from collections of ice cream, fruit or floral scented bath bombs; but for the ultimate in relaxation, opt for The Lavender Bath Bomb Collection and escape to Provence (without the jet lag). Pair these moisturizing bath bombs with the Lavender & Black Amber Vegan Fine Sugar Scrub and Body Crème and your jealousy of all of your friends in LA will just melt away. Visit

Gift Sets from LaLicious

Whatever you need to get through the winter months, LaLicious has the answer.

Ole Henriksen Worship Your Body Kit

The new Ole Henriksen Worship Your Body Kit contains everything, and I mean everything, one could want for an indulgent home spa experience and super soft skin. This kit includes seven miniature body care indulgences (i.e. Body wash, body scrub, body oil, hydrating lotion, muscle comfort lotion, hair wash and hair hydrator). And if that isn’t enough, there’s also a tranquil music CD that is heard at the famous Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa in Los Angeles. At a recession-proof, $24, this kit will make any spa-lover happy. Visit and Sephora stores.

With spa products like these, you’re sure to replenish not only your skin, but your body, mind and soul as well. Hey winter, can you handle that?
