November is here, and that means that holiday season has officially begun! Well, according to the retail industry and Christmas crazies like me anyway. But until we can more formally deck the halls and jingle all the way, we have the best brands and products to take you through this month in style. Everything on this list is also a great stocking stuffer or item to add to your own wish list.
I have been using this cleanser for about a month and loving every second. The smell is light but fresh, and though the idea of adding more oil to my face wasn’t initially appealing, I love this cleanser. Combine it with the Youth Restore Serum and you have a one-two punch that will have your face feeling amazing.
There’s nothing like a glass of vino to put us in the mood for a seasonal celebration. Luckily, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) recently launched the TCM Wine Club, which will help consumers discover wine through the lens of movies. When you sign up, you receive 15 bottles including True Grit Limited Edition Zinfandel. Then each quarter thereafter, club members receive 12 bottles, including more movie-themed wines. Bottoms up!
For those who are more intensive with their skin care regime, the Le Mieux Cosmetics Skin Perfecter is your 4-in-1 beauty tool extravaganza. Using professional-strength ultrasonic waves, it cleanses, exfoliates and extracts clogged pores and blackheads by resonating at 28,000 vibrations per second. Very cool and very effective.
Join a new generation of charitable shoppers this holiday season. For those who are looking for more ethical and eco-friendly fashion alternatives that are still really beautiful, Bead & Reel is your spot. It’s a one-stop shop for ethical fashion that is thoughtful to people, animals and the earth through it’s eco-friendly, cruelty-free and sweatshop-free outfits. That’s a lot of promises, but they live up to every one of them.
This brand just launched and I am already in love. Perfect for those who already love statement necklaces and sparkly earrings from the likes of J. Crew and Anthro, 7 Charming Sisters is fun and colorful and doesn’t come with a high price tag. The most expensive piece is only $53 so you can easily buy a piece as a gift, and still have money left for one for you.
I have been a long time fan of this brand, and I love testing out new products with Skinn because they are all sensitive enough for my skin. This month I am all about the Watermelon Hydrating Mask, which has been giving me a summery escape every time I use it. I also recommend their Sugar Lips Polishing Scrub! I’d never heard of a polishing scrub before, but I gave it a try and now I’m hooked.
The real telltale sign of the season is when Starbucks starts using their signature red cups. And though we are loyal to the coffee house all year round, right now we are especially digging the Cinnamon Dolce K-Cups. I finally have a Keurig at home and these K-Cups are a godsend when I’m running late in the morning. Sometimes I even have it in this red mug for even more early Christmas magic.
Last but certainly not least is a primer, serum and mixing base all in one. Plus it comes in a pretty pink package! The Veil Cosmetics fluid primes your complexion to give your makeup longevity and glow, plus it instantly plumps and brightens your skin. It’ll be great for holiday beauty looks to glow under candlelight.
