Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets ($5.29) is a gift most people can appreciate. Who wants an oily face? Exactly. These are excellent stocking stuffers or great to add to a lil’ gift basket you’ve put together for your favorite teenager.

H20 Anti-Acne Clarifying Mask ($25.00) is an excellent mask designed to help clean out your pores, remove excess oil, and help minimize the appearance of acne-related blemishes. My skin always feels so smooth and clean after using this!

LUSH Mmm Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt ($7.95) is totally cute and girly–which means I love it. Deliciously scented sweetness that dissolves as you relax in a hot bath.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Starter Kit ($32.50) is a great way for teenagers and young kids to learn how to start taking care of their skin. Three easy steps and all the products you need to do them with.

AG Hair Cosmetics dv8 texture spray ($20.00) is a spray designed to define, texturize, and style hair without giving you build-up at the end. I like to spray it on damp to dry hair to help add texture and make my hair look more “piece-y.” What’s great about this product is you can spray it into your roots, blow dry, and then you’ll see some nice volume and definition. You can also just use it to keep your hair a little more “in place.”

Trust me, I’m lazy in the morning. I’m even lazier because I spend most of my day blogging in my home or going to school, so there’s just few occasions where I need to get dressed to the nines. I’ve grown accustomed to lazing around, playing with the puppy, and the like, so any product that can multi-task I get excited over. This is why dv8 is so exciting, because it’s very much like a pomade, but it’s in a spray formula. It can do so much in so little time, and you don’t have to get pomade all over your hands either.

Use this to help cut back the time you spent getting ready in the New Year — it launches in North America January 1st, 2009.

Here’s your chance to get a larger glimpse of the MAC & Hello Kitty collaboration that hits stores next February.  I think the engraved Hello Kitty into the lipsticks is a nice touch.  The colors themselves don’t quite excite me… we’ll have to see how everything swatches.  Am I the only one who preferred the regular quads with the clear lids over the new trio/quartet packaging (as seen in Heatherette and the upcoming Dame Edna, and now HK)?

Clinique Pays It Forward This Holiday Season With Random Acts of Happiness
Coming Your Way December 12th, 13th and 14th

Starting tomorrow (Friday) through Sunday, Clinique is celebrating “Happy Weekend.” Their work with Big Brothers Big Sisters is always something I’ve admired with the brand, and it’s great to see them working together this holiday season.  I think it’s great that this year, the children of Big Brothers Big Sisters not only get donated gifts for themselves, but get a full year of skincare and makeup for their moms, too.

Clinique will reunite with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the country, to ensure that those less fortunate have many opportunities to smile this holiday season. Beyond donating monies, Clinique will give the children and their moms something to be happy about.

Random Acts of Happiness:  In key cities, Clinique will be spreading the holiday happiness by offering complimentary gift wrapping services on the streets, free hot chocolate, Happy candy canes and cookies for kids.  Some lucky customers will be getting free iPods from those entered to win.

CLINIQUE’S TOP TIPS TO MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

1. Smile a lot during the holidays.
2. Say thank you to people.
3. Perform a random act of kindness.
4. Talk about all the good things that are happening in the world.
5. Remind someone about all the reasons to be happy.
6. Give a child something to smile about.

Clinique Holiday Cards designed by children of Big Brothers Big Sisters are available on www.clinique.com while supplies last. Also log on to catch “The Ten Days of Happiness” where Clinique will share a happy thought daily – send to your friends and loved ones and create a virtual happy moment.
