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!

LUSH Angel soap: what people really want for a holiday gift

TotalBeauty.com
Never Have Another Junk Food Craving Again

Do you regularly finish the Pringles can? Or make it to the bottom of your Chunky Monkey carton? Decode your cravings and find out what your body really needs

Never Have Another Junk Food Craving Again

This is a TotalBeauty.com diet article

Bet you didn’t know that binging is your body’s cry for help. Instead of beating yourself up after every late night snack, find out why you’re having that sweet or salty craving in the first place. This guide’s got the answers, plus the healthier alternatives.

What is your body telling you?

Hello Gorgeous,
It’s no secret, I am the biggest fan of LUSH hand made cosmetics and body products.
I have loved every product that I have tried and it’s always a combination of reasons such as:

  1. Scent-all from organic oils and natural sources
  2. Texture-gritty when wanted, smoothe and soothing when  needed
  3. Company policy of being vegan,paraben free, healthy and hand made

LUSH has retail stores across the nation-but for some reason, none in Arizona…yet?  You can get your LUSH products online. Already, I know what you are thinking: “I’m not ordering body products I can see or smell off the internet, paying for shipping then having it arrive and not liking it”.

Whoa-wait, hold on; stop there. Simply visit the LUSH homepage, and pick a product such as bath soap, shower gels,lotions or hair care. Then when you click through on the product you are interested in, there will be several reviews to help you decide if it’s for you or not. LUSH also has a generous return policy-so it’s win win. Get some for you and some for your holiday gift giving! You won’t be disappointed!

Angel's Delight

A fruity slice of heaven

When you’re need of some holiday cheer, ask the angels to help
raise your spirits. Our best-selling Angel’s Delight soap returns with
the same merry tangerine and orange scent we all love. Inspired by the
popular English custard of the same name, our uplifting sudser is just
as sweet and fruity as the beloved dessert. If you’re lucky enough to
encounter a whole round of Angel’s Delight in store, you’re sure to be
mesmerized by its beautiful gold moon “frame”. LUSH co-founders Mark and
Mo Constantine happened upon a similar gilded frame in an antique shop
while on an inspiration trip to Venice, but we think they may have
surpassed the original design with this beautiful soap!

Features

  • Stuff the stocking: Skip the tangerine tradition and put this fruity soap into stockings instead.
  • Hold on tight: Keep what you’ve got with vegetable glycerin, which helps skin retain moisture.
  • Surprise!: With a beautiful array of
    colorful chunks suspended throughout, every piece of this fresh handmade
    soap is more unique than a snowflake

Remember: you are beautiful!
