If there’s ever a time you should take advantage and stock up on bath and beauty products, it’s the holiday season. Beauty counters get flooded with beautiful sets at a fraction of the price of what the products would cost if you were to buy them separately. So while you’re picking up some as presents for friends and family, it’d be smart to add a few to your personal beauty bounty, too.
