What is your favorite skincare brand/line? Who makes the perfect products for your face? What makes them so great? What products do you recommend by them?
We all love that moment when we finally get to unwrap our Christmas presents and find out what’s inside â€“ but once we’re done unwrapping, we’re left with a pile of unwanted gift boxes, decorations and gift wrap that is hastily thrown away. Here at LUSH we have the environmentally friendly alternative to Christmas gifts. Not only can loved ones be treated to deliciously fresh handmade cosmetics, but all of our festive gifts are lovingly wrapped by the LUSH elves using 100% recycled paper and prettily tied with recycled paper ribbons — so you can give that amazing present and help save the planet. For the first time this year we offer a completely green gift option and a charity gift option, so if you’re looking for that special luxury gift, stocking filler or secret Santa, check out LUSH’s eco-friendly gifts that are all wrapped up, ready and waiting to give to that lucky person.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream (Limited Edition): The most extravagant gift you can give your face.
La Prairie, a name synonymous with luxury, reinvents utter indulgence, bringing the ultimate in luxury to unprecedented heights with Skin Caviar Luxe Cream. When only the utmost in luxury will do, La Prairie offers the answer: the supremely elegant experience of lifting and firming in a limited-edition size jar, when a little is simply not enough.
Skin Caviar Luxe Cream is a superior concentration of caviar extracts, unique sea proteins, phytotherapy and bioengineering technologies. Your senses feel caressed by an extravagant gift of energy and moisture, beyond ordinary luxury into the ultimate Caviar experience. This experience allows lifted, illuminated satin to replace the tired skin of moments ago. 5.2 oz.
Now, I know La Prairie is a pricey skincare line; one most mortals cannot afford to try nor fall in love with. This is a special holiday edition size (5.2 oz), and the price tag? Oh, a mere $900.00! So let me ask you dear readers, have any of you tried La Prairie’s products? What was your experience? I keep thinking for $900.00, why don’t I save up for a face lift? Botox?
What are Saturdays made for? How are you spending your Saturday? (And for that matter, how about Sunday, too?)
I’m lazing around the house for another hour or two before heading up to my parents’ house for the day. Sunday will be mostly devoted to school work (how fun!).

YOUR SWEETHEART IS ONE-OF-A-KIND. THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, HER GIFT SHOULD BE TOO. GIVE HER A CUSTOM BEAUTY IN A BOX FROM FACE TIME COSMETICS.
Face Time Cosmetics is founded by makeup artist Linsey Snyder, and for the holiday season, they have developed “Beauty In a Box,” which is a product specifically designed for the gift recipient. Linsey and her team of experts work with the customer using photos, hair color, skin tone, and personal tastes to create the ultimate customized beauty box. They even provide a “Face Card” with detailed instructions for application! It takes less than a week to have it customized and shipped to you! The custom beauty in a box is $150, but if you want to go another route, check out already selected items in Romantic, Stunning, and Sultry ($90).
I recently had the pleasure of trying four of Face Time’s Well-to-Hue eyeshadows in Camilla’s Class (muted purple with subtle silver shimmer), Jamie’s Gem (rich medium-green with gold shimmer), Lauren’s Loyalty (white beige with gold undertones), and Virginia’s Vitality (matte medium pink). All of Face Time’s eyeshadows have been named after women who have influenced the company along with their “most valuable attributes.” Each shadow gave me great color pay off, felt like butter, and I liked that they come in a variety of shades to serve every woman’s needs. Of course, I fell in love with the green (who doesn’t love a green with a touch of gold in it?), and I tend to gravitate towards any white-gold colors, like Lauren’s Loyalty. At $12 a pop, they are hard to resist! Head over to www.facetimecosmetics.com to see the other shadows or make a purchase.
