… especially when these holiday products have Christmas themes right in their names.
Now the question is… would you use these products all year round, or stick to the season? I must admit I’d have a problem applying “Have a Cherry Christmas” lip gloss in June. Is it just me? Thoughts?
Do you purchase holiday-themed makeup? Are beauty products with a seasonal twist more attractive to you – or less so, because of their limited use?
I would totally use a lip gloss year round. When it comes to holiday themed soap, I wouldn’t keep it at my sink after the tree comes down. If it’s in my purse, who cares…as long as it tastes great!
This is true – but would you be drawn to the scent of eggnog in the middle of the summer? Still trying to get over this, I have issues!
I would say less attractive because of their seasonal twist.
Interesting! Thanks for the feedback!
Love the OPI bling polish!
I know, right? It’s an ornament too!
I will admit it, holiday themed nail polishes and soaps find a way into my house:)
But of course they do – they’re irresistible!
The smells. Cranberry, gingerbread, cinnamon and pine. The sparkle nails and makeup. The accessories with bling. Love, Love, LOVE it all.
LOVE your comment! And I’m a sucker for anything cinnamon :)
I had to put away the peppermint hand soap! But I’m now gonna put it back out!!! :)
Awesome! I did that do with the candy cane hand soap, LOL!
I dont mind holiday themed makeup but as it doesnt get used year round I rarely buy new items. My gold and silver eyeshadows are years old!
Well, the good thing about eyeshadows is that they have a long shelf life!
The red & green OPI polish and Gingerman Body Shop Butter say Christmas too much, but I’d use the others for sure!
Especially the stila palette – those colours are gorgeous!
Love it! I am such a sucker for holiday themed products! **swoon**
They do help to get us in the Christmas spirit, that’s for sure!
While I rarely purchase any items such as these, I sure enjoy seeing them. Thanks!
NP – hope you enjoyed the eye candy!
Awesome picks! There are a lot of scents associated with Christmas that I love (especially cinnamon and peppermint!) so those products always catch my eye!
I love the name of “Good Tidings We Bling” – so cute!
I know – I love the creative names too :)
If it’s something no else sees, like lip gloss, I’m fine with it. Something that others will see like a snowflake so, no I wouldn’t use.
Interesting! You’re not alone – quite a few other readers have said the same thing!
I’m generally not a fan of holiday themed products. Usually if they are scented I;m not interested as I don’t like candycane scents etc. There is the odd product which I like which happens to be holiday themed by generally I stay away.
That’s good to know – I’m always curious as to how many people are actually influenced by them.
I would stick to the season.
Thanks for weighing in!
i just bought that bath & body works soap … and the candy cane one lol …
no point resisting, i’ll buy it if it’s a good product. not if it screams christmas though
I bought the Candy Cane BBW soap after the holidays last year – it was on clearance for $1.75 so I couldn’t resist. Will be breaking it out this year!
I’ve bought Body Shop’s cranberry scented products and don’t mind using it all year. That’s the only seasonal scent I think I’d use all the time.
Yes, cranberry seems acceptable as an all-year-round fragrance.

If a product screams Christmas I stick it away after the holidays too! NIce to hear I’m not the only one…lol.
Haha yup, we’re too of a kind!
I do enjoy holiday products but put them away after the season has ended and bring them out again the following season!
Goody! Another like thinker!
I don’t really buy into the christmas themed makeup. But i can’t resist the christmas themed scented soaps from bath & body. I went all out on black friday and got one of each. I’m currently using the Frosted Apple and it smells amazing! The scents are a nice touch in getting into the christmas spirit!
Oooh, I will definitely have to check out the frosted apple – sounds sweet!
Oooh, the OPI polish looks gorgeous. Love that you can use it as an ornament too!
I know. I’d love a tree full of OPI ornaments, wouldn’t you?
I wait all year for The Body Shop’s Cranberry…everything and Starbuck’s Christmas blend…I don’t want sparkles on my nails – ever :)
LOVE The Body’s Shop’s cranberry too :)
It’s less attractive because you can’t use them at other times.
True! That’s the way many people see it!
Yes, I’ve bought some seasonal make-up since you can get some really cool products at this time of year. I don’t buy a lot, since, as you say, some of them can’t be worn all year, I bought a Smashbox beige glitter eyeshadow, which I wore for the past two winters.
Oooh, the Smashbox eye shadow sounds divine!
I would use them all year. most people dont pay close attention to the names/brands other people are using on themselves. and honestly its probably the same product they sell the rest of the year with a different packaging.
Interesting – and smart!
I would use them all year! I love Christmas! I find my self singing Jingle Bells in June sometimes! :P
I received a BeautyGram a few days ago in the mail with some Cake Beauty products in it, I loved it,this is the first time Ive tried their products. The GingerSparkle body butter sounds divine.. yummy!!!
I love holiday products and I stock up so i have enough for the whole year. I gingerbread in the summer! :)
