Holiday Gift Guide Beauty and Fashion Edition #sponsored

1. BROO Shampoo & Conditioner – We’re taking it back to basics today. Remember when it was all the rage to use beer on your hair? Well, it’s time to do it again. Except this time we are using craft beer. Because we are fancy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you know that half of the stuff in every BROO Shampoo and Conditioner is real craft beer? We have been using all three varieties shown above for a while now and, between the novelty of the product and the fabulous smell {not beer-y at all, more minty!}, we think this would make a very cool Christmas present. Plus, they are cruelty free and vegan! And you know how we love our furbabies. Buy BROO products from their website here.

2. Nourish Organic Eye Treatment – We are loving Nourish Organic Eye Treatment Serum with Avocado and Moroccan Argan Oil. I have been using it for a while now and I never realized how tired my eyes looked before – until they looked better. One thing I love about this product is how cooling it feels on my eyes. And it only takes a very little bit to see results, so squeeze sparingly on the tube when you use it. This product is great for normal to dry skin but I have combo skin and I haven’t found it to be too heavy or oily at all. Buy it from their website here.

3. Nourish Organic Fresh Start Facial Set – I love the entire Fresh Start Facial Set but my favorite part is the toner. The toner is so refreshing when you spray it on your face. It also smells really good – with a light refreshing smell that isn’t overpowering. I use this as a base for the Pure Hydrating Organic Argan Face Serum. What do I like best about Nourish Organic? They are the world’s first USDA-certified organic skincare collection and they are cruelty-free, gluten-free, and mostly vegan. Buy this set from the Nourish Organic website here.

4. Lip Clear Lysine+ Coldstick – We think the Lip Clear Lysine+ Coldstick would make a great stocking stuffer. Let’s face it. Lots of people get cold sores this time of year. Not only does this product help to sooth cracked and dry lips, but it also provides SPF 21 protection. And since the sun is a common cold sore trigger, then this product can help to prevent cold sores before they happen. Buy it from their website here.

5. Paul Mitchell Awapoochi Shampoo And Conditioner – Don’t forget the furbabies this holiday season. Our Daisy Baby gets dry skin and it irritates her so. One thing that we have found that helps with this is Paul Mitchell Awapoochi Shampoo and Conditioner. And that smell, yum. You have never smelled a dog that smelled so good. ๐Ÿ™‚ There are several products in the Awapoochi line to choose from, as well as several other lines. so I am sure that you can find something that your little furry friend will enjoy. Buy Paul Mitchell Pet Shampoo and Conditioners from their website here.

6. Rodan + Fields ENHANCEMENTS Lash Boost – My lashes are like microscopic, people. If yours are like mine {or someone on your list has lashes like this}, then you totally need this. Get 100% real and 100% gorgeous lash that are 100% yours in just 4 weeks. This nightly eyelash-conditioning serum features a unique proprietary formula that improves the appearance of lash volume and length. In weeks, youโ€™ll be wondering if you need mascara at all. Purchase Lash Boost today through 1/2/17 and receive some fabulous freebies while supplies last! The Lash Boost Holiday Offer includes: ENHANCEMENTS Lash Boost (5mL/0.17 fl. oz.), REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream Mini (3mL/0.1 fl. oz.) and Exclusive Lash Boost Travel Pouch. Shop with Allison Evans today.

7. Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen – Let’s face it. We are all aging {I turn the big 4-0 in just a few days, people!} Fight the signs aging with the Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen. REDEFINE is a comprehensive skincare regimen that layers cosmetic ingredients and potent peptide technology to help defend against and reduce the visible signs of aging for noticeably firmer, smoother, flawless-looking skin. The REDEFINE Regimen features four full-size products: Daily Cleansing Mask, Pore Minimizing Toner, Triple Defense Treatment, and Overnight Restorative Cream. Buy it from Allison Evans here.

8. Marfeel Maxi Dresses from StyleWe – Recently I went on a Cuban cruise and StyleWe sent me some fabulous dresses to wear while on it. The ones I chose are pictured above. What I loved most about them was the material. Made of Viscose, all of the dresses felt like silk, without all the stickiness and wrinkles that you get with silk. It was super hot and humid in Cuba but I was really comfortable in these dresses and I wore them on deck and to dress up for dinner. Their stock changes often, so check out the Marfeel Maxi dresses that they have in stock right now here and keep an eye on this blog. We have an awesome StyleWe giveaway coming very soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
