Skin Care

By Candice Sabatini

It takes more than lip gloss and mascara to keep her looking fabulous. Underneath it all, it starts with beautiful skin. We’ve got something for everyone on your list!

Whether she’s headed to Paris or Hoboken, she’ll love My Comfort Carry On from Caudalie, the French brand all us anti-oxidant lovers love. The kit contains Gentle Cleanser, Vinosource Moisturizing Cream Mask, Lip Conditioner, Moisturizing Body Lotion and Hand & Nail Cream. Your planet friendly girl will appreciate that the cute carrying pouch was once a plastic bottle in a former life.

Price: $19.00 and available at the Caudalie Spa at the Plaza, Bluemercury on the upper west side and http://www.Caudalie-USA.com

Your all American girl is a Clinique devotee and nothing would make her happier than to get this three piece More Than Moisture travel set of Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, a cream/gel moisturizer, Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief to moisturize skin with aloe, and All About Eyes serum which will hydrate and refresh puffy eyes all through the new year. The trio is packed in a cool silver zippered kit she’ll use over and over again.

Price: $40.00 and available at major department stores and http://www.clinique.com

Who needs the Miracle on 34th Street when you have this Holiday Miracles Gift Set from Votre Vu? Wrapped in its holiday finest of pretty paper, travel stickers and touches of sparkle, this three piece set includes Mal-Ligne Wrinkle Eraser, Tout le Monde Antioxidant Eye Gel and Portrait Collar Neck Crème. She’ll think you’re tres magnifque when she opens this lovely cadeau!

This time of year we always think of cranberries, whether using them to decorate the tree or for making a sauce to go with the turkey. But did you know that the pretty little cranberry is a great source of antioxidants too? Arcona does, and they’ve used them in their Holiday Cranberry Kit which contains Cranberry Grommage to exfoliate, Cranberry Toner on easy to use cotton pads and Magic White Ice, a gel moisturizer containing white cranberry complex, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins B5 and E to neutralize free radicals.

Price: $50.00 and available at http://www.Arcona.com

This season, when the words Hope and Joy are said on a daily basis, we mean them in the most heartfelt way. But hey, a girl still wants to look good too! Philosophy’s Joy of Good Skin set contains six of their best products – Hope in a Jar moisturizer, Hope in a Tube eye & lip firming cream, Exfoliating Wash, Purity Made Simple cleanser and their Microdelivery peel vitamin c/peptide crystals with Activating gel.

Price $85.00 and available at http://www.philosophy.com

And with that, I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a New Year filled with Joy, Hope, Good Health and Prosperity.
