beauty treats to pamper yourself this holiday season

happy tuesday, beauties! i have to admit, the days are flying by, the year is almost over {less than 5 weeks left in 2012!!} and it shouldn't surprise me, yet here i am...surprised!

as if you hadn't noticed, the holiday season is in full swing. hopefully, you're keeping those stress levels down, and making sure to take care of yourself. this is the time of year that i exercise more {lots of yoga, ballet, walking, boxing, pilates, circuit training}, take daily naps and let myself get lost in books and podcast-listening. i love to change my nail polish every other day as well. doing this forces me to focus, slow down and of course, is always a mood-lifter to see my tips and toes dressed in fresh, new shades.

beauty goodies are the perfect aide for keeping stress at bay; they're truly a perfect reward for all the hard work that goes into each day! i haven't tried any of the following products {yet}, but they recently came to my attention, and since each sounds quite splendid, i thought i'd share...

Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser ~ a natural cream that comes with a muslin cloth to cleanse, polish, and smooth the skin. like a facial in a bottle, the concentrated formula purifies skin deeply and removes makeup with a natural blend of revitalizing and aromatic essential oils.

Amika Obliphica Nourishing Hair Mask is enriched with rare Sea Buckthorn Berry, known for its nourishing and healing properties. the high content of vitamins and minerals (C, E, omega 3,6 and 9} help improve the texture of hair, leaving it nourished, shiny and more elastic.

use of Sabon Body Scrub Patchouli Lavender Vanilla promises to eliminate dry skin and bring even the most damaged skin back to life. this exfoliator {available in other yummy-sounding scents, like Lemon Mint and Fig Coco} allows skin to live up to its full potential by sloughing away old skin, giving it a fresh appearance and the chance to shine.

Tracie Martyn LotuSculpt Eye Pads promise to treat tired eyes after a long day; these eye pads are formulated to moisturize and calm, greatly diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the appearance of dark circles.

i think we can all agree these sound fabulous, right??
tell me: how do you pamper yourself during this stressful holiday season?
