Five days of sweet and affordable Secret Santa Gifts!

Five Days of Secret Santa Gifts!
Do you have a Secret Santa exchange at your work or with your family? I LOVE them. I love plotting my gifts, tying them all together with a great theme, then putting them in a strategic place for my pal to find. Last year, my pal was the school librarian, so every gift had some sort of deer in it – think reindeer – and had a punny message with ‘deer’ instead of ‘dear’. Because I love beauty products, I also made all the gifts about pampering herself, which was perfect because she spends an incredible amount of time taking care of everyone else. Of course, with five gifting days you want to keep your treats affordable, so here are five ideas for wonderful Secret Santa gifts that won’t break the bank and will definitely thrill your pal.                                                                                                *samplesClean Fragrance OrnamentClean Fragrance Ornament

You can’t go wrong with an ornament, especially one that has beautiful fragrances inside! The Clean Reserve Rollerball Layering Trio ($10 – a $24 value!) is a super cute ornament that has three Clean fragrances that can be worn alone or layered for different unique scents. It includes Reserve Blonde Rose, a subtle and sophisticated floral; Reserve Sueded Oud, a fresh and creamy oud (which is woody musky sceent); and Reserve Warm Cotton, a blend of floral and cotton accords, plush lily, amber, and musk. You can find this at Sephora and

Who doesn’t want to find a beautiful new nail polish inside a pretty gift bag? My Secret Santa pick is KB Shimmer Grin and Gerbera It ($9.25), from their Fall 2016 Collection. This cream nail polish is a deep warm pink with just a hint of red, which makes it a perfect polish gift because it will work in any season. The bit of red makes it different from the standard pink cream, perfect for that beauty loving Secret Santa pal.

My favorite of the sets I have is the Endless Shine Trio. I love the 3 Lip Shines that come in this set. They are just the right size, just the right cool colors and just the right texture.

Goat Milk Hand Cream comes in many delicious sounding scents as well as this unscented one. A 3.4 fl oz tube of this is $20 and is one of the best I’ve tried.

You can’t go wrong with these drugstore classics: Carmex, Sally Hansen, and Jergens

overwhelmedWalking into the drugstore these days can be overwhelming…the sheer volume of choices is enough to make you want to back out the door and put shopping for beauty products on your list for another day. For those times when you are in doubt, here are three classic drugstore lines with my favorite products that always perform.       samples3 Classic Drug Store Brands

1.  Sally Hansen Nail Polish:  this is such a great line for nail polish, especially for my addiction to nude-ish colors. The polish goes on so easily with the flat, wide brush – in fact, I do believe Sally Hansen polishes have my favorite applicator brush of all time. There is a huge selection of shades available.

Carmex Classic Lip Balm Carmex Classic Lip Balm

2.  I love the Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Jar ($1.59) for preventing dry and flaky lips. The classic version comes in the familiar yellow jar and it has that scent that takes me way back every time I open it. Lip skin doesn’t have any sebaceous glands, which is why they need continual moisturizing. My only problem with my Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Jar is that my husband keeps stealing it, so now I always get two just in case. Carmex® Lip Balm can be found at retailers nationwide. For more information, please visit: Oil-Infused MoisturizerJergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

3.  Looking for an awesome body moisturizer?  You can’t go wrong with Jergens. Right now they have out their Oil-Infused Monoi and Coconut Moisturizers ($4.99 each) which have the classic Jergens® body lotion infused with luxe, skin-softening oils. They are lightweight but give heavy-duty hydration to skin, while also making it soft and luminous. And the scents are so pretty!Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

• Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizer With Nourishing Monoi: Harvested from the Tahitian Garden Flower and known for its intoxicating floral scent, Monoi Oil is a potent skin soother that’s been used by women for centuries. Combined with Jergens® deeply conditioning, protein-packed formula, it locks in moisture, smooths texture and tone, and leaves skin visibly radiant and softly scented.Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

• Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizer With Refreshing Coconut Oil: Fortified with the deeply penetrative, hydrating properties of premium Coconut Oil— along with its invigorating, tropical scent—this enriching body lotion gives your skin instant luminosity, a superbly soft texture, and long-lasting moisture for a gorgeous, all-day glow.

You can find these new Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizers exclusively at Target stores nationwide.

ChapStick Duo: Snap, Change, Rearrange (and win the giveaway)

ChapStick Duo

ChapStick Duo

I’ve been really lucky this year to have had opportunities to work with ChapStick. They’ve sent me lip balms that have become my everything. But this time they’ve outdone themselves with ChapStick Duo. These are the most fun and delicious way to keep your lips hydrated and also have the cutest balms in town.

Chapstick Duo

ChapStick Duo

The DUOs are available in 3 combinations: Sweet Peach & Vanilla Simmer, Tropical Pineapple & Fresh Coconut, Refreshing Watermelon & Strawberry Kiwi. The single attachables are available in Cool Mint, Berry Sorbet Shimmer, Sweet Peach, Refreshing Watermelonam , and Fresh Coconut.

I’ve been using the Sweet Peach & Vanilla Shimmer one lately and the smell and taste is delicious. I can’t believe how natural they smell. They last a long time and only need to be reapplied after I eat something. Sweet Peach is reminiscent of the juiciest peach and invokes summer. Vanilla Shimmer has just a tiny touch of shimmer to give some dimension to your lips while tasting sweet and like a vanilla wafer. Wear them alone, under or over lip color. They feel wonderful on my lips and keep feeling moist without any stickiness.

I’m flipping over Palmer’s FlipBalm

Palmer's FlipBalms

Palmer’s FlipBalms

Three of the cutest products came my way from Palmer’s and I can’t get enough of these. These are a ball of fun this summer. palmers flip balmThis is a new debut for Palmer’s and they use their patented Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E but in the most luscious flavors/scents. There are just these three flavors but I hope they are successful enough to create some fall and winter FlipBalms.

pr samples

Each of the FlipBalms contains something special – Juicy Watermelon (my favorite) contains watermelon extract, Creamy Coconut contains coconut oil, and Ripe Mango contains mango extract. They smell so true to the real product that it’s like having a fruit salad at your service.

Palmer's FlipBalm in action

Palmer’s FlipBalm in action

These are just too cute for words but they are also effective as a wonderful lip balm. They are very moisturizing and last for a great amount of time. They flip open and then lock into place so they are easy to apply. They say they are a one handed flip design but as an oldie I need two hands.

Palmer FlipBalm ingredients

Palmer FlipBalm ingredients

When I started using these I kept thinking of all the ways I’d love to gift these $3.50 balms. My kids used to go to a sleepaway camp for 3 weeks in the summer and these would be perfect to send in camp goodie mailer. The kids aren’t allowed to receive food there anymore but these would be close to food, at least with their sniffers. I also envision putting one in a child’s backpack for going back to school. What a fun surprise for them to open their backpack and find one in there. Another reason I hope these become available in more cold weather flavors is for their stockings hung by the chimney with care.

Palmer's Flip Balms in Creamy Coconut, Juicy Watermelon, and Ripe Mango.

Palmer’s Flip Balms in Creamy Coconut, Juicy Watermelon, and Ripe Mango.

These can be found at mass retailers, drugstores and grocery stores. MSRP is $3.50 so avoid Amazon with their inflated price. Target has these for $2.99. No Parabens – No Phthalates – No Petrolatum – No Gluten.

As Palmer’s says “Flip, Click, Smooth”. Good advice!

What flavor would you flip for?  –  Marcia

*received for consideration

Cocoa Butter: a rich, natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky, transforming even the roughest, driest areas into buttery soft skin

Vitamin E: a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even and toned appearance

Shea Butter: deeply moisturizes and soothes dry skin while acting as a moisture barrier to keep skin hydrated

Coconut Oil: deeply moisturizes and softens

Peace, love, and great skin with The Organic Pharmacy

Organic Pharmacy
With the crazy circus of politics these days, simply scrolling through Facebook stresses me right into a horrible – and so ironic – combination of wrinkles and acne. So I step away from the media and step into some organic self-care to get back my peace and love vibe.


 The Organic Pharmacy was created by a homeopathic pharmacist. The first store opened in 2002 in London, with the first US store opening in Los Angeles in 2008. The array of products in this line is amazing – you can find skin care for every type of skin, body products for your head to your toes, bath soaks and shower gels, shampoos and conditioners, baby products, tinctures, homeopathic remedies…the list goes on and on. The Organic Pharmacy says, “We still stick with our strong principles and pride ourselves on the passion that we share for quality, efficacy and above all a dedication to you. We hope that we have shown the world it is possible to choose an organic product that is beautiful to look at, luxurious to use and more effective than its synthetic counterparts without compromising your health or beauty.”

I haven’t tried anything from them yet that I didn’t think was terrific and I have four favorites to share with you today in the spirit of positivity!
Organic Pharmacy Herbal Toner
The Herbal Toner ($65) is fabulous. I use this as a toner, and also as a spritz of moisture that is especially wonderful on hot, sunny days. It has 18 organic herbs that work together to keep skin healthy. It reduces pore size while also lifting and hydrating skin. It smells like fresh oranges, which is an instant relaxer and de-stresser.  

Organic Pharmacy Carrot Butter CleanserOrganic Pharmacy Carrot Butter Cleanser

The Carrot Butter Cleanser ($74) is a very unique cleanser. This is a balm that melts right into your skin, lifting makeup and dirt right out of your life. No need for a separate eye makeup remover either, because it melts off even the smokiest of eyes.  

Infused with Rosemary, Carrot and Shea Butter, the skin is left comfortable, incredibly soft and radiant. Chamomile and Lavender soothe and calm both skin and mind.

Once you smooth on the balm, you wipe it off using a hot, wet muslin cloth. The results are awesome – clean, glowy, hydrated skin. The Carrot Butter Cleanser is one of The Organic Pharmacy’s best-selling products and it should be on your list to try.

Organic Pharmacy Lip and Eye CreamOrganic Pharmacy Lip and Eye Cream

I also love the Lip & Eye Cream ($48). This is a beautiful cream that soothes skin, reduces puffiness, and lightens dark circles. Because it’s hydrating, it reduces the look of fine lines and makes for a wonderful lip moisturizer. The ingredient list includes Shea butter, bilberry, evening primrose, rose hip and frankincense. I pat some on under my eyes, then use what’s left over on the sides of mouth and on my lips. You really only need a teensy amount so the tube lasts forever. 

Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip BalmOrganic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm

I can’t rave enough about the Antioxidant Lip Balm ($21.50). I love, love, love this beautiful balm. Ingredients include Shea Butter, pomegranate, rose hip and Vitamin E. The balm leaves my lips so soft and hydrated thanks to the Shea butter and Vitamin E. The pomegranate and rose hip are excellent antioxidants that fight free radicals while also calming and soothing dry or cracked lips. This balm is the bomb.

It’s getting pretty crazy and very stressful out there. Be sure to take care of yourself. The Organic Pharmacy is a great way to get some peace, love, and great skin.  – Lisa
