The big ''C'' is nearing closer and closer and as hard as it is to hear it, you're going to have to start preparing for the festive season soon if you want to get a head. More and more families are starting to shop earlier, organise earlier and save earlier - because of this things pretty much sell out by the beginning of November leaving the actual festive season stressful if there are specific things you're hoping to buy.
To get your inspiration flowing these four products have either just launched - or - are due to launch soon. Get a step ahead of others by making your must buy list now and snagging what you can as it launches...I Love.... Christmas collection

I absolutely adore Aromatherapy Associates which is why they're making it onto this list. They're so simplistic but luxurious and an absolute dream to use. You know when you see movies and the ladies are always in deep bliss because they're been pampered, so you try to have a pamper day at home and it's never that good...it's because you're not using AA.
The start of the month saw the launch of their Clear Mind Bath & Shower Oil. This was a collaboration with Liberty. This particular design is, of course, limited which makes it all-the-more covetable. The bath & shower oil is formulated with palmarosa, bergamot, frankincense and chamomile essential oils which alone are super beneficial to our whole bodies, here's why...
Palmarosa | Helps you to 'cool' down, kills bad bacteria, aids digestion & promotes healthy cell renewal.
Bergamot | Did you know that it's the addition of bergamot in tea that takes it from being just 'tea' to making it 'Earl Gray', it's a natural antibiotic, naturally lifts depressive moods, relaxant, helps to reduce scars and scar tissue, reduces fever & improves skin issues.
Frankincense | Immune system booster, strengthens hair, regulates the menstrual cycle, anti-ageing, helps and strengthens all bodily systems, diuretic & reduces stress.
Chamomile | Anti-inflammatory, relaxant, reduces perspiration, cools the body down, helps fight depressive moods, sedative, improves circulation & helps to reduce pain.
Balmi have launched three new high shine lip balms in metallic tins especially for the festive season. Flavours include Cherry, Roseberry or Blackcurrant and each balm costs £4.99. These three and other Balmi products are available at Urban Outfitters .Liz Earle Radiant Wishes Christmas Collection

Superskin Botanical All-Stars | Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Instant Boost Skin Tonic, Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion & muslin cloths.
And then there are these gift sets although I don't have the product run down for them yet:
Sparkling Skin Duo | Botanical Skin Saviours | Glossy Nails | Romantic Candle | Beauty Icons | Beauty Favourites [Exclusive to Boots] | Christmas Daily Essentials [Exclusive to John Lewis] | Men's Great Skin.
What do you think of this line up? I think they're all fab (otherwise why would they be featured?) but I especially love the sound, and look of the Aromatherapy Associates Clear Mind Bath & Shower Gel.
