GlamGal Top Picks For The Holidays

Between all the beauty box memberships I have (4) and the daily visits to my local shopping centre, I certainly don't lack in make up and skin care products. Being an aesthetic student also has it's perks, I get to sample new skin care lines and spa treatments all in the name of learning! Here is my Hot List for the prettiest holiday season, products I am loving.....

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:  This rice based enzymatic exfoliant works wonders at freshening my skin. It eats away at dead skin cells leaving a wonderful glow to my face. Since the enzymes are activated when exposed to water, all I do is lather the powder in my hand with some warm water and apply to my face. As it dries, I apply my wet hand to reactivate it and keep it on as long as I can. In the spa, this stuff can be kept on for over ten minutes while a steamer is applied. No need to scrub or rub the face with this stuff! It does all the work for you!  
Dr. Schrammek Herbal Care Lotion: A gentle tonic made with herbal extracts, this liquid is splashed on my face day and night as a toner. I love this stuff because it is packed with vitamins and nutrients and my skin feels so fresh and alive. A great pick me up in the afternoon as well. I carry a small spray bottle with this in my purse. During the day I give a squirt to hydrate and wake my stressed face!

Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer:  I picked up an adorable kit at Sephora in Miami Beach this summer, this was in it. I can't go a day without this stuff. I apply a stroke to my cheek bones, forehead above each eye brow and my cupid's arrow, blend with my fingers and voila! A radiant glow! What a difference a little highlighting makes, it's astonishing!

Burts Bees Lip Shimmer: I use strawberry, all natural with a minty taste. This lasts and moisturizes my lips when the heat is on at the office and my dry skin screams for some moisture, especuially my lips.

Essie Nail Polish: "Not Just a Pretty Face" This shade goes with everything and is flattering for a Fall nail, neutral enough to wear with any color make up and cozy sweater yet dark enough that it's trending alonside the dark eggplants and browns showing up this season. A must have!

Smashbox "Girls on Film" Lip Enhancing Gloss: I am loving the shade Overexposed, it's neutral peach for a sexy pout!

Borghese Hydro Mineral Creme Finish Make Up - No. 1: Moving away from beauty balm's for now, I need a little more coverage with cooler air forcing its way in! Although I usually use Cover Girl, I am loving this brand right now. It's thick enough but not as thick as my usual brand, giving just enough coverage without looking over the top or fake. I love their nail varnish so I knew I would enjoy this product. Only thing is I can't stand the bottle upright!

Have a happy, happy holiday :)
