It's that (wonderful) time of year! Let's chat about all the things we'll buy for our best friends but would secretly like to keep for ourselves. #justbuytwo
Let's start with our pals who drop half of their pay checks on allll the beauty box subscriptions.
Gucci Bloom // I will admit it, at first I was only interested in this particular bottle of perfume because LOOK AT THAT COLOR. But after smelling it at my local beauty store and dousing myself in it more than what was necessary before leaving, I can say for certain that I would wear this every. single. day.
NYX Matte Lip Cream // Goes on creamy, dries matte, stays on for hours, costs $6. Seriously.
Kristin Ess Gift Set // I don't think there is a single woman in my life who I talk to on a regular basis that I haven't expressed my love for Kristin Ess to. Her products make my hair feel super healthy, smell amazing, and are easy on the eyes. Yes, pretty pink bottle, you can sit on my shower shelf.
Smith & Cult // $18 is more than I would normally spend on nail polish, but it's Christmas people. And this is no ordinary nail polish. The application is pretty flawless - goes on smooth and covers in one coat. Plus it's pretty.
Exfolikate // A two-minute facial? Yes, please. Leaves your skin feeling super soft and flake free.
Dry Brush // Brush your bod before you hop in the shower and all of your lovely lady lumps will be feeling silky smooth, for under $5!
Lip Pot // Not the first time this little number has shown up on a favorite things list, and for good reason. Leaves your lips feeling smooth and moisturized with a nice little tingle (the good kind 😉)
Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel // This is a new product to me, so I can't give it a personal review, but I like the idea of holiday traveling with a cleanser I can use on my face and body. Plus it's French, so fancy.
Charcoal Mask // There's something really satisfying about watching this mask pull the oil right out of your pores. It's gross but it's true.
