REVIEW: LATHER Survive and Thrive Holiday Survival Kit

As I sit looking out the window, the snow is coming down steadily.  It is the day before Thanksgiving, I've been baking since yesterday, and I had to rush out in a panic to get a few ingredients I forgot to get during my initial big time Thanksgiving grocery shopping trip.  I dreaded hitting the grocery store the day before Thanksgiving, I am already tired, sore, and stressed, and one more hiccup on my journey to get everything perfect for tomorrow was not a welcome surprise.  Thank god I had my LATHER Survive and Thrive holiday survival kit on hand to use to help whisk away the pain and stress that the holiday season tends to bring upon us.

I am so thankful and grateful that the innovative brand LATHER has put together such a blissful and delightful Survive and Thrive holiday survival kit to help keep us physically and emotionally prepared to overcome any and all holiday obstacles that may cross our paths so we can be joyous and stress-free throughout the holiday season and beyond into the New Year.

Clear head balancing balm helps ease pressure and tension with therapeutic essential oils including lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus and mandarin.


Another LATHER product that is intoxicating to inhale, such a revitalizing and divine aroma!  The balm is thick and rich, but does not leave a greasy feeling on your skin.  I had a minor headache one evening and I massaged some of the balm over my forehead and at the back of my neck and it felt so soothing and comforting.  It really did ease my head and neck of stress and pressure.


Lavender aromatherapy candle has a pleasant, floral aroma that calms, clarifies and soothes.  Specially formulated with a paraffin-free, 100% soy wax that burns toxin-free, carcinogen-free and allows the full dispersion of our pure essential oil blends.  Wicks are 100% spun cotton and primed in beeswax.

Cucumber and ginseng facial mist, formulated with cucumber, ginseng and algae extracts, helps soothe, tone and revitalize the skin.  Use after cleansing and throughout the day for a quick refresher.


A really nice, lightweight spray that perks up your skins and makes it feel refreshed and energized.  I love using it in the middle of the afternoon to brighten up my face and reset my makeup.  It is perfect for throwing into your purse for that instant pick-me-up anytime you feel the need for it.
