Christmas Gift Guide: Skincare Sets

When it comes to skincare and body care, there are a lot of brands that I like, but there are four that I have been using religiously and loving for many years now, and I am talking about Clarins, ElemisREN and Aromatherapy Associates.

Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Eyes, Lips and Face Palettes

As we continue our Christmas gift guides, today I’d like to feature palettes that caught my attention: for lips, eyes and face.

Looking for a new neutral eye palette? ArtDeco brought out three Most Wanted eye shadows palettes. And I personally would really love to try them. There is something very nostalgic about ArtDeco eye shadows, I used to love them back in the days and I still think they are fantastic, especially for the price. Both shimmering and matte finishes are brilliant.

ArtDeco Eyeshadow Palette  warn, neutral and cool toned holiday 2015

You can choose from:

  • Brown: warm bronze shades, sensual copper nuances and soft beige in light and darker shades match every eye color and emphasize everbody’s individual style
  • Nude: discreet mat and softly shimmering shades in brown, grey and rosé allow for a variety of combinations
  • Smokey: smokey grey, intense black and strong rosé combined with pearly-shimmery highlight colors are suitable for day make-up as well as for a big night out.

Each contains 12 shades in different formulas. German quality and wallet friendly, what

Holidays Gift Guide: Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter

So many celebrities, models and beauty editors  rave  about Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter and their Cream  that it’s hard not to want it.

Unfortunately, I have not tried it yet as I have so many other amazing creams/butters/lotions to use up right now. But I am so getting myself  the butter in the future! I’d get a butter as I have very dry skin but you may want to get the cream.

The price is £36/$47

Right now you can get the special edition jars for the holidays but I actually like the original design better.

And here is what Kiehl’s write about their product if you are interested:

‘Considered the most hydrating, rich body moisturizer in the Kiehl’s line, this super-enriched, nurturing body treatment is formulated with beta-carotene, squalane and nurturing oils; ideal for extremely dry skin, it leaves skin soft, smooth and elegantly hydrated. The original, classic formulation and customer favorite for over four decades.’

Sounds great to me. :Adds to the wish-list:

This would make an amazing and luxury gift for the winter holidays!
