I have been doing a lot of shopping recently, mostly gift shopping and I have picked up a few beauty items for myself along the way. I am liking what I am seeing out there! Today's post is all about buying something beauty related to someone on your gift list. Here are a few ideas/suggestions that will make any beauty lover smile!
Skincare 1. OLEHENRIKSEN makes some great products, the wipes and the foam face wash are really awakening and smell like oranges and refreshing. It is for all skin types and aims to brighten dull winter skin. 2. GLAM GLOW has to be my favorite face mask. I currently use the pore refining one with clay but this one gets a lot of hype too. The blue glam glow tin, pictured above focuses on moisturizing, which is another great winter staple. 3. The boscia makeup remover is amazing. It smells like roses and is so gentle on the face and eyes. This is a great addition to any makeup gift.
This is for those Urban Decay lovers out there who want a little sparkle this holiday season. I know there are plenty of amazing UD products, but I just wanted to mention these two because they are not talked about as much as the Naked palettes, eyeliners and the new "On the Run" palette. On the right is a BB cream than can be used as a primer or a base. It minimizes pores, goes on smoothly and also has great glow and coverage. The gorgeous item to the left is an illuminator for brow bones, cheek bones, or heck, your whole body! I love this illuminator. The texture is very buttery and smooth!
These are some lower priced options (for eye makeup lovers) Did you know that there is a mascara specifically for your bottom lashes? Clinique makes one at a reasonable price! If you do not want to spend money on a full size mascara, buy smaller sample sizes like the Benefit they're real mascara, and then the giftee can purchase the full sized mascara if she likes it! Scandaleyes by Rimmel are great gifts because not only are they affordable, they can be used as eye shadow and eyeliner and they can be natural or smoky depending on the effect you want to make!
These are just a few beauty gift ideas for the coming holiday season...I really could go on and on. I hope you found this useful and pick up one of these items for someone special! Happy Sunday xoxox

The Body Shop is up there with one of my favorite places to shop! Not only is their selection amazing, they are mostly organic, and they contribute to charities. Here are five reasons why you should shop at The Body Shop (according to moi):
1. They are against animal testing
2. They believe in fair trade and use all natural ingredients from farmers around the world such as Shea from Ghana and Honey from Ethiopia.
3. The quality of their products are on point, with the smells, textures and outcomes.
4. They specialize in skin care, makeup, body, and perfumes (scents).
5. The Body Shop helps you look good, as well as the planet!
Below are some products that I enjoy from The Body Shop!
These two items are part of my skincare ritual. To the left is my makeup remover, I use this when I don't use my Clarins eye-makep remover. This product smells like flowers and takes off my makeup without any struggle. However, do not use with waterproof makeup, your makeup will not come off with this! To the right is my morning serum! It is packed with vitamin C to brighten and boost your skin in the morning, and it smells like oranges!
OMG, their body line is incredible! The body butter at the top is Cocoa Butter and it smells like chocolate. The quality is so rich and smooth and leaves my skin shiny and moisturized. I am currently using the mango shower gel (center) and it smells like the name. I use a scrub once a week, and I am currently using the mango sugar scrub and it is very gentle but makes my rough skin smooth as butter. I have yet to use the Cocoa butter exfoliater but I will let you know how that rolls.
Choose the Body shop, discover a world of amazing ingredients...
Happy Sunday! xoxox
