For me, going big with clothing, hairstyles and desserts has always led to disastrous results so I’m not particularly a fan of super-sized anything, but there’s an exception to every rule. There is something to be said for jumbo-sized beauty products. I don’t mean the latest trendy shades that will be over and out in a New York minute or the products with a short expiration date that could go bad before you have time to use them up. Instead, I’m talking about those tried and true products that are part of your daily regimen or the super high end, extra luxurious beauty products that light up your guilty pleasure zone every time you use them.
Here, my Supersize Wish List:
Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream ($2,060) is a legend in its own right and coveted for its ability to boost firmness, reduce lines, minimize pores and really transform the complexion. Even though 16.5 oz. isn’t that large in the world of beauty products, for Creme de la Mer it’s absolutely gargantuan. To use it, simply warm the product for a few moments between your fingers and then gently press it into the skin. You can also mix a few drops of the brand’s renewing oil into the crème before applying for a boost in hydration and an extra radiant glow.
Tom Ford Cafe Rose Eau de Parfum Decanter ($595) has 8.4 oz. — huge in fragrance terms — of the most enticing, seductive scent encased in a gorgeous decanter. Turkish Rose Oil and Bulgarian Rose Absolute mix with exotic spices, dark coffee, incense resin, and woods notes for a warm, wonderful, creamy essence.
Bumble and bumble Thickening Shampoo ($57) blends Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice to hydrate and heal, Pro-Vitamin B5 to balance moisture, Polyquaternium-10 and 11 to conditions and hydrate, and more to give those with limp or fine hair the look of fuller, thicker healthier, gorgeous locks. Packaged in a 33.5 oz. size, this extra large sized bottle should last you a long, long time mainly because a little bit of this product goes a very long way. It also pairs well with the brand’s Thickening Conditioner, Thickening Serum, and Thickening Hairspray.
Jack Black Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser Value Size with Pump ($50) cleanses your hair and your body as it wakes up your mind and boosts your immune system. Rosemary and Eucalyptus are antibacterial and the energizing notes enable you to breathe easy, and Juniper Berry is a great detox ingredient that also helps you recover post-workout. You’ll love the 33 oz. size with an easy-to-use pump.
Jo Malone London Luxury Candle ($470) burns for 230 hours thanks to its 88 oz. size. You’ll love the wonderful scent too, especially if you like a hint of citrus over a Caribbean breeze thanks to the peppery basil, aromatic white thyme and a hint of lime blend.
Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower & Bath Gel ($25) multitasks as bath, shower and shaving gel to cleanse, soften and condition skin. This 40 oz. mega-sized version has a wonderful scent that refreshes your senses and your bod, and you’ll also love how easily it rinses away with no residue left behind. I use the original formula but you might want to try the pomegranate, pear & green tea or fresh plum fragranced formulas instead.
