Every single year right around the holidays I turn into this weirdly-mushy-lovey-dovey-sentimental woman who cries at just about everything. I get sucked into cheesy Christmas special made-for-tv-movies, I find myself humming Christmas songs all day long and the very sight of children waiting in line to meet Santa at the mall makes me break down in tears (super embarrassing especially since the dude working at the Hickory Farm cart was watching me the whole time). I guess because I'm just so loving during this month, I went bonkers for the Elixir of Love No. 1 Body Creme by Caswell-Massey and have deemed it my personal "it" gift for all my friends. The lotion is super-hydrating and smells so lovely you'll want to keep sniffing yourself (or positioning yourself so others can sniff you). And it's not just me who thinks this is the most delightful scent - the box even says it's the "original potion for love everlasting." Contains Jasmine, Lavender, Passionflower, Artemisia absinthium and Egyptian Musk - it's a scent that's not overpowering at all, but leaves a very slight, beautiful fragrance behind. The creme, while nice and thick sinks right into skin without even a hint of greasiness. Honestly, this is the best gift ever and I even bought one for myself... well... because the woman who broke down in front of mall Santa deserves a pick-me-up.
