Best Seasonal Products at Trader Joe’s:

1. Trader Joe’s 12 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar

Trader Joe's

This is my first time seeing this one, too, and I was very excited to get an advent calendar for myself. The minis inside of it are really great. There are some products I know and love and also quite a few new ones I’ve never tried and can’t wait to check out.

Here’s a video I posted on my Instagram of the unboxing:

2. Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Body Butter

Trader Joe's

I was so excited to pick up this shimmering Candy Cane scented body butter. I’m not usually a big fan of body butters, either. I don’t like how thick and goopy they are and how long they usually take to soak in. Not this one. It’s so incredibly moisturizing, while also feeling amazing on your skin without leaving greasy residue. The GOAT body butter, in my opinion. Just look at how delicious this is:

3. Trader Joe’s Gummy Bear Lip Balm & Overnight Lip Mask

Trader Joe's

I’ve never seen this little set before and I am loving it. The gummy bear flavor is light and not overpowering. I keep the lip balm in my car so I always have something for my lips, which get quite dry in the winter. The overnight lip mask I keep at home.  They come in the absolute cutest little package that is designed for stocking stuffers.

I am really hoping they keep making sets like this, because I absolutely love them.

4. Trader Joe’s Retinol Night Serum

Trader Joe's

This is another new find and I am loving it. I’ve been training my skin to tolerate retinol and this has a good percentage while still being really gentle on sensitive skin. I do not use retinol every day, but I like to incorporate it into my routine weekly. The baobab seed oil is also very moisturizing.

5. Trader Joe’s Set of 3 Hand Creams

This set of 3 hand creams also comes in a great, giftable box. Would be perfect for teachers with an added gift card, because they wash their hands so many times a day and they get really dry. I know from firsthand experience, ha!

I love the smaller size of these, too. I have tucked them all over, in my small handbags, in my laptop bag, in my desk, you name it!

6. Trader Joe’s Crackling Candle

I’ve never had a crackling candle before and now I’m hooked. Plus, the smell on this one is subtle and so nice. I don’t like heavily perfumed candles or fragrances, so I love that this one is soft, yet noticeable. The price on this one for a candle this size is amazing, too.

7. Trader Joe’s Hot Cocoa Body Scrub

Gentle body scrubs are great for exfoliating your skin and encouraging lymphatic drainage. This hot cocoa body scrub smells amazing and is gentle enough for my super sensitive skin.

8. Trader Joe’s Gingerbread Lip Balm

I have lip balms all over the place. This one is amazing. Just proves you don’t have to spend a ton of money for a great product. I hope they keep this one around for awhile and look forward to seeing what future flavors they come up with.

9. Trader Joe’s Neroli Bamboo Shave Cream

I got a mini size of this in the advent calendar and now I need it. It’s so creamy and has a gentle foaminess to it. My razor glided effortlessly using this and the very light fragrance is nice, too.

10. Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Oil Facial Cleansing Pads

I’ve paid a lot more for a lot less. Save your pennies, buy these, same result.

11. Trader Joe’s Peppermint Foaming Hand Soap

I can’t believe how expensive simple everyday things are getting! This hand soap is the perfect holiday hand soap and for a fraction of the price. Love.


I’ll be on the lookout for more products, so I can try them and report back. Until then, don’t miss this other post with even more ridiculously good Trader Joe’s products.
