December -12 Days of Good Gifts

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Whoa. It’s here. December. So happy and so sad. Happy to be celebrating the Christmas spirit and all the fun activities with family but sad to see the year come to a close. For me, it went by too fast and I feel like life is happening in a Ferris Bueller quote!

So hug your loved ones and spend some quality memory making time with them before it’s too late!

Now on to today’s blog topic – a 12 Day of Good Gifts for your self and your gift list.  I am happy to share some Amazon products to make shopping convenient for yourself and the list!

I am using and loving this charcoal tooth whitener.  Note to you, perhaps pick up the black bristle toothbrush when you order this product because it will turn a white bristle, a dark color. I know what you are thinking – how does putting black powder on your teeth make them white?

The soft pumice effect of the charcoal does a great job cleaning and whitening your teeth.  When I use it, I get my toothbrush wet, then dip it into the charcoal powder and add a lil dollop of toothpaste to give it a minty taste. Without the toothpaste, it doesn’t really have a flavor.  This is a good one to buy for yourself and give as a stocking stuffer or gift to a beauty lover, or – even put this in the white elephant gift exchange!

 

About the product

 

  • Be careful when opening lid for the first time
  • Whiten with no sensitivity – premium ingredients, excellent for gum health
  • Refined charcoal powder from the purest sources

Black Friday Gift Giving Guide

Hi ya Gorgeous,Well, it’s Black Friday – people are going crazy, right now, trying to get a tv for $1. Good luck to them!

In other news, I have my favorite products for the beauty lover and their stocking stuffers, a gentleman and some makeups for the gamut in price range for others.

Let’s get started!

I’m a big fan of 7th Heaven single satchet masks! These average $2 a piece! They make a perfect stocking stuffer for the beauty lover in your life!

In the photo from left on top to right, then the second row left to right:  Passion Peel Off mask, Chocolate Mud Masque, Hot Spring Sauna Masque, Creamy Coconut mask, and for men,  the Deep Pore Cleansing peel Off mask.  You can find find these at Ulta Beauty, Walmart, Kmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and Harmon Discount stores!

 

Just for those with beards and facial hair that needs extra care, the Beard Guyz have created a daily wash and deep conditioner for cleansing the beard of food particles, bacteria, excess oils and to soften the facial hair.  Each bottle is $9.99 and is gentle enough for daily use.

Available from the BeardGuyz.com website, or at CVS, Walgreens and HEB stores.

 

Also for the beard, especially in Movember, the Beard Guyz  offer a Nighttime Beard Growth serum to help facial hair growth, rehydrate dry hair and has an intense growth formula that works as the eard owner sleeps!

They also have a Beard Scentz Original spray that is pocket sized and a perfect stocking stuffer for the beard wearerer on your gift list because this wee spray will help freshen and sanitize a beard!  Find online at BeardGuyz.com or your local Publix, Wegmans, Meijer or Bed Bath and Beyond store.

 

For the classic shaver on the  gift list, consider the Van Der Hagen Premium Shave Set. It’s a traditional shave set that is perfect for the beginner or man who prefers a more traditional shave.

The set is just $13.99 and a gift that can be used daily and last for months to come!

There is also a Van Der Hagen traditional safety razor that makes a perfect companion to the premium shave set. It comes with stainless steel razor blades and a lifetime warranty and is available for $19.99

Now for those who love makeup, like me – this new line of colors from TIGI Cosmetics is gorgeous and richly pigmented! Many of these products are available at Walmart and Walmart.com as well as some Ulta Beauty stores and are in the $10-20 range.

I love the shadows in the Love Affair quad! I can do my shadows, brows and liners, all in this quad!  The bronzer cheek duo, called Lovely Duo blush is highly pigmented and a shimmery bronze tone that can do both highlight, cheek color and a bit of  contour even!

Now, I love the Foxy color lip gloss and it feels and wears great. The mascara – and you must know – I am hard on mascaras as it is my favorite makeup product – this TIGI mascara is for those who like a light and natural lash look.

For the other end of the the makeup price spectrum, let’s look at Hard Candy, available exclusively at Walmart and online at Walmart.com.

I love this line for it’s bold use of color and innovative products, as well as their affordability. Most products are $10 and under!

I’ve already done a full review of these products, you can see that in this post here,  but these two products I think would be perfect gifts for the budget beauty lover on your gift list.

The Poppin’ Pigments are so versatile and the illuminating highlight is the same when it comes to 100 ways to use!

 

Where ever you are shopping today, be safe and have fun!
