Here are some of this season’s most popular gifts as well as some of my personal favorites.
There is new science and technology for healthier, firmer, clearer skin that radiates beauty. Let your Mommy show her skin’s true beauty with these products.
Just cleaning with your hands can leave behind oil and dirt trapped in pores. The Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System and the Clarisonic Mia Skin Care Brush System use a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth skin. In just 60 seconds, the brush gently, yet thoroughly removes 6X more make up and 2X more dirt and oil than manual cleansing alone. The Clarisonic is safe for cleansing all skin types and recommended for use with any non-abrasive cleanser. It is rechargeable for up to 30 minutes of use AND is waterproof so you can use it in the shower or tub...perfect for any of you ladies who suffer from body bumps as I call them. This has been on my wishlist since I found out about it. Hint, Hint! I like the lavender one!
The Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion Skincare System uses soothing sonic action that gently infuses Anti-Aging Sea Serum into the outer layers of your skin. The combination of the specially formulated serum with sonic application work together to give you immediate, amazing results. Serums and creams are absorbed more deeply and evenly, enhancing their ability to promote healthy, hydrated, and younger-looking skin. Opal is perfect for the eye area and can also be used on the lip, brow and forehead areas. Benefits include immediate hydration leaving skin feeling refreshed and noticeably firmer skin after two weeks. It also reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles and can be used with your own favorite eye cream. I personally recommend iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex.
Surgical results without knives, needles or lasers! The NuFACE Facial Toning Device is a unique, patented, clinically proven technology stimulates and tones your facial muscles without any damage to your skin. NuFACE devices are the first and only hand held microcurrent devices FDA-cleared for at-home use. Microcurrent facial toning devices send soft, gentle waves to the muscles in your face that help relax overly-tightened muscles and strengthen under-worked muscles. When this happens the face is lifted, firmed and toned to a more youthful appearance. At the same time, the microcurrent improves circulation to your face which stimulates production of collagen, improves tone and texture, and helps eliminate fine lines. This can erase those frown lines and worry lines the kids give you without surgery!
A massage is a great gift but a massage with luxurious smells and lavish moisturizers from a loved one is the best! Here are a few head to toe ideas that will get you BIG brownie points this year.
Footlogix #19 Foot Massage Lotion is simply the best solution for dry, cracked feet. I am reluctant to admit that I go barefoot more often than not and this product is the only thing that saves my feet.
