Sally Hansen Peppermint Cuticle Oil and Holiday Collection

A cute gift for the makeup lover is Vanity Planet Blend Baby. This is a set of 2 makeup sponges that have both the sponge and the silicone applicator that everyone is talking about. The Unicorn Set has a pink and violet sponge in it. It’s two, two, two gifts in one. (Remember the old Doublemint gum ad?? Or am I too old for words?)

Vanity Planet Blend Baby

Ordinary makeup sponges soak up liquid products, leaving you with less to go around and wasting serious dollars, while silicone pads do nothing to blend and buff. So, Vanity Planet went back to square one and created the perfect mix of both. The all-new “Blend Baby” is an entirely unique, dual-sided, multi-purpose sponge that can do it all. This baby is a double-duty heavy hitter, combining the familiar blending benefits of a soft sponge with a silicone applicator pad that delivers liquid and cream products directly to the skin without wasting a single drop.

The Blend Baby is as versatile as it gets. Use the sponge wet or dry and go from drab to dewy in just minutes. Simply apply liquid makeup to the silicone pad, then use the perfectly rounded sponge edges to blend with streak-free precision. Rescue your makeup from a sad, sponge-soaked fate. Apply, conceal, buff, and blend with this one tiny tool that packs a major punch, and ditch your old-school sponges forever.

The set is normally $19.99 but it’s on sale now for $14.99 and would be great as a gift as well as your own self made stocking.

Last is something I really appreciate and I know no one would buy for me. Clio makes different types of shavers for women. There’s the Beautytrim personal hair trimmer and the Palmperfect cordless electric shaver.

Clio BeautyTime and Palmperfect shaver

BeautyTrim is a small thin trimmer that comes in a variety of colors. It’s totally painless to use and is especially helpful for areas that would be hard to get a razor in. It’s recommended for everywhere on your face but works especially good for above your brows and on your upper lip. It can be used wet or dry. There’s even an attachment to help with your eyebrows. What’s nice about it is that it’s so slim that you can put it in a makeup bag. Have you ever gone for a pedicure only to realize that you have hair on your toes? Slip this out and remove the hair before the tech notices!!

Palmperfect is a cordless electric shaver that is so cute and so handy plus the price is amazing ($8.57). Use it for your legs, underarms, bikini line, neck or feet. It has dual clipper blades to make it easier for shaving any length hair. Because it uses batteries you can take it wherever you need it. This is for a woman, it’s not as heavy duty as most men use but it’s great for us. And it comes in cute designs. Mine has Ultra Violet so it’s Pantone approved. Besides Amazon look for it at Target and Walmart.

The Tree Hut Bare collection is going to change your bath time

We’re fairly new to the Tree Hut family of products but we think we’ll be sticking around for a while. Tree Hut’s representatives sent us a package of their BARE products to get to know the brand and we’ve been busy using them. We’re excited about sharing these so that you can become a part of the family too.

Marcia is sharing 2 Tree Hut Bare products that are making her smooth as can be

TREE HUT SHAVE PREP SUGAR SCRUB ($9.99)

This tub friendly scrub is helping me shave my legs and underarms. I like this much better than a shaving cream because it’s a double duty product. It exfoliates my legs and at the same time lifts the hair so that I can get a closer shave.

Tree Hut Shave Prep Sugar Scrub

Tree Hut Shave Prep Sugar Scrub

The fragrance of this delicious and makes me wish I had a bigger hot water tank so I could enjoy exfoliating my legs longer. It softens my skin and leaves it lightly scented after. I use an unscented body lotion after shaving my legs so that the lightly fragrance of almond/coconut aroma sticks around longer.

It’s formulated with Oat Kernel which helps soothe and relieve skin irritation. There’s Avocado Oil in it and sugar and those help exfoliate and moisturize. Coconut Extract is a natural product that contains the necessary proteins for tissue repair. Put them all together with your favorite razor and you have soft sleek skin.

TREE HUT BARE HAIR REMOVING SUGAR WAX KIT ($14.99)

Tree Hut Bare Hair Removing Sugar Wax Kit

Tree Hut Bare Hair Removing Sugar Wax Kit

This is a new type of product for me. I’ve never waxed by myself before so this was a paradigm change for me. I have only tried it on my legs but I’m anxious to try it on my face since it’s good for removing hair on your legs, body, and face.

Tree Hut Bare Hair Removing Sugar Wax Kit

To use you remove the cap and heat the jar in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and reheat in 15 second intervals if needed. What you want is the consistency of honey. With one of the sticks in the kit apply the wax on clean skin in the direction of hair growth. Make sure that the amount you apply is smaller than the size of the strip. While warm smooth the strip over the product and rub in the same direction. Now comes the scary part  –  hold your skin taut and remove the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth. It’s best if you hair is about 1/4″ long before use which is why I haven’t tried it on my face yet.

The kit contains 8 oz. of Hair Removing Sugar Wax, 10 wax strips, and 3 wooden applicators. It’s not a one time deal since you can use it again by just heating up the jar.

Ingredients: Honey, Sucrose, Allantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylexylglycerin

TREE HUT BARE MOISTURIZING SHAVE OIL  ($11.99)

Wow, is this stuff amazing!! I typically just reach for some soap when I am shaving my legs or under my arms, but not anymore. I adore this deliciously scented shaving oil. It smells fantastic…like tropical freshness. Smooth it onto wet skin and even a dull razor just glides across skin. It leaves your skin with the closest shave imaginable and the softest skin ever.  This is a real keeper.

TREE HUT BARE HAIR MINIMIZING BODY BUTTER ($9.99)

Another super smelling product!! This is a thick, creamy body butter that gradually reduces hair growth. You have to use it for a month before seeing noticeable results. I used it for five weeks and did notice a difference. I’m sure that if I continued with it, I would have even better results, but since I’m not a very hairy person to begin with and I have so many body products to try I probably won’t.

My daughter, however, is really excited about this and is already bugging me to stop by Ulta to get another jar. I will probably just use it as a body butter from time to time because it does a fabulous job of softening skin and it smells tropical and fresh.

If you want to freshen up your hair removal routine, we recommend checking out the Tree Hut…the BIZ gives it high marks and we can’t wait to try other products from this excellent line. You can find Tree Hut products online at Amazon and at Ulta stores.
