If Severus Snape Shopped At Lush Christmas Gift Box Idea!

As many of you know I am a huge fan of Harry Potter and especially Severus Snape so I decided to create a Christmas gift box based on my blog post — If Severus Snape Shopped at Lush!

It’s super easy and fun to put together your own Severus Snape box for Christmas! I picked up a Halloween themed box from JoAnn and paired it with some potion bottles from Michael’s. Then I chose a bunch of Lush products that I think Snape would use (yes, I believe he’s a bath hedonist!) I also added a Halloween Kringle Candle and some Rae Dunn wooden matches because if you’re going to bath correctly you need a candle!

Finally, I added an official Severus Snape wand for an added touch! Check out my video on YouTube to see how I created this fantastic Harry Potter Christmas gift,

Here’s a pic of my If Severus Snape Shopped At Lush Christmas Gift Box!

Bath & Body Works NEW Snowy Citrus Swirl Review

The new Bath & Body Works Snowy Citrus Swirl is part of the Christmas 2019 collection and it’s amazing! The notes are chilled tangerine, whipped marshmallow, creamy tonka bean & fresh vanilla.

I love this scent because it’s so fresh and clean. It reminds me of the oranges people used to put in Christmas stockings. It’s also perfect for both men and women and it a great morning “wake-up” fragrance.

Be sure to check out my review of the Bath & Body Works Snowy Citrus Swirl on YouTube too!

Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara Review

I switch out mascara like shoes! I’m always trying new brands and formulas and the Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara is this weeks pick! The tube is so bright I couldn’t even get a decent photo!

 

The Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara comes in a soft tube (which a lot of companies are now doing) that kind of looks like lip gloss. It’s a volumizing and lengthening formula that is Made in Korea.

The wand is very fine and it does lift and separate my lashes really well. I like that it only took one coat and it lasted all day. I’ll definitely use this one up!

It is also Cruelty Free and Gluten Free.

Price: $26

Lip Monthly February 2019 Review

I received a complimentary (free) Lip Monthly bag. All opinions are my own. The cost for Lip Monthly is $12.95/ month.

My February Lip Monthly bag has:

Jing AI Tinted Balm – The shade is Crimson Tide and the scent in Vanilla/Peppermint. Price: $6

IBY Beauty Lipliner in Rosebud – This is a nice dark shade. Price: $6

Steve Laurant Lip Gloss in Ballerina – This shade is so pretty and it smells like vanilla. Price: $22

Bang Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick in Hot Chocolate – It’s dark but smells like slightly Hot Chocolate! Price: $18

I feel like this was a really good month because I loved all 4 of the products and the bag is a $52 value.

Boxycharm February 2019 Review

In 2019 I started to unsubscribe to my beauty boxes (but that’s another post). The one that I kept was Boxycharm (here’s my referral code) because it’s really the best value, hands down. For only $21/month you get well over $100 worth of product, many of which are full sized. As you can see from the photo below my February 2019 was a jackpot win! The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (which retails for $24) paid for the entire box.

I also got….

The Pretty Vulgar Bronzed B, Bronzer (retail $32). This is a nice product which I would never pay $32 for but I was thrilled to get it in my box. It’s Made in the USA too.

The Touch In Sol No Problem Primer (retail $18). I have never heard of this brand but a full-sized primer is a good product to get.

The Sol De Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream (retail $20). I have the Bum Bum Cream and this one smells amazing too. So a huge yes to a nice coconut cream.

The NudeStix Magnetic Luminous Eye Color (retail $24). Again I would never pay $24 for a stick but happy to get one. The shade is a super nice bronze and I am loving it already.

So this month the box was a $118. Yes, this box is amazing!
