Holiday Gifts for Her 2017 -


One skincare line I can vouch for is SkinCeuticals, a professional line of advanced skincare products backed by science. Love their antiaging, antioxidant and high potency formulas which work to treat a number of skincare concerns.

The C E Ferulic is a powerful vitamin C serum that helps smooth out wrinkles and brighten complexion. I use it every day which my skincare specialist recommended.  Even in my 40s I have adult acne.

The Blemish + Age Defense is a salicylic acid acne serum that keeps adult acne at bay, and improves visible signs of aging. The Clarifying Clay Masque is a facial mask that helps decongest, lift impurities, remove excess oil, and gently exfoliates the skin.
