Holiday Gift Guide
Confused on what to gift that picky beauty junkie on your list? Worry no more! I’ve got you covered with a sweet gift guide! Whether she’s into skincare, makeup or everything in between I’ve got the perfect gift idea. Take a look!
Clarisonic Mia ($125.00) has to be at the top of my list because it’s such an excellent investment! You can pile on as much serum, moisturizer and makeup as your heart desires but none of it works well when your skin is clogged and oily. The Clarisonic systems remove 6 times as much dirt, oil and makeup as you would with your hands or a washcloth. It gently exfoliates the skin leaving your face soft, supple and free of dead skin. Skincare products absorb much more quickly and penetrates deeper and makeup applies much more smoothly. The Clarisonic Mia can is available in stores and online at beauty specialty stores and select department stores.
Philosophy Here Comes The Bride ($32.00) is a four piece mini skincare set that perfect for someone looking for a new skincare routine. It features a Hope in a Jar moisturizer, Purity Made Simple gentle cleanser, Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion and Amazing Grace shower gel, bath and shampoo. Amazing Grace is a great soft neutral scent and the cleanser and moisturizer work well for all skin types. Here Comes The Bride is available at Sephora.
