Christmas shopping is underway! As the woman of the house, I do most of the Christmas shopping (all of the Christmas shopping). And like most of you reading this – as I peruse around stores shopping for others, I often find myself thinking about what I want from Santa!
I am a sucker for beauty products. I like things that smell good, I like things that work, I like pretty packaging. Here are a few of the things I would like to pull out of my stocking Christmas morning:
First off, MOROCCANOIL! The past couple years, this stuff has become a go-to hair product for most women because it works on all hair types. Apply a dollop to your ‘do’ for silky, shiny, tangle free, static free winter hair. Perfect for hair and the tree, this season the oil is being offered in a sweet little ornament packaging and a sweet price too ($16.50)! MOROCCANOIL Treatment was truly instrumental in creating the world craze around argan oil and what it can do for our hair and skin. Since then, the brand has expanded to include several items, which leads me to another one of my favourites; MOROCCANOIL BODY Hand Cream ($28.00-$36.00). This hand cream is luxurious and rich, but not heavy. Hands feel soothed and silky, not coated. All MOROCCANOIL products have a signature smell I cant get enough of. But the Hand Cream comes in two additional fragrances if you’ve been extra good this year 😉 *Find MOROCCANOIL products in most professional salons.
This next product of from a line many of you are just getting to know, but when you do – it will knock your stockings off! For Beloved One is a world renowned skincare line that originated in Taiwan. For Beloved One has become a game-changer in the Taiwanese cosmetic industry. Today, it is often sold out in North America. Sephora is the latest store I saw carrying this line. While there are a variety of products I can’t wait to try, my latest dip was into For Beloved One Hyaluronic Acid Tri-Molecules Moisturizing Surge Cream ($110.00). The texture of this cream is very unique. I can best describe it as “fresh”, which is not often a word you would associate with a cream so rich and powerful. It captures, replenishes, and creates moisture. Hyaluronic Acid promotes firmness. If my love for this line isn’t enough, ELLE Magazine featured it in their 2017 Beauty Grand Prix. *Find For Beloved One at T&T Supermarket or www.YesStyle.ca
I will conclude this post with what is perhaps my favourite beauty product in the winter, glow. VITA LIBERATA is a luxury self tanning line that not only gives great colour, it is EASY to use. Self tanners, whether they last a week or shower to shower, can be tricky to apply. They can also smell weird. This line is user friendly and smells delish! My favourite product right now is VITA LIBERATA Body Blur ($50.00). It comes in 3 shades (I chose medium) and gives an instant HD skin finish. It lasts for 24 hours which means you don’t have to slough it off. Perfect for your party dress décolletage, legs, even face! Body Blur technology minimizes blemishes and smooths imperfections, giving you the gift of glow this Christmas! *Find VITA LIBERATA at Sephora
