Ulta Holiday Gift Guide



I think it's obvious that I'm obsessed with beauty products. I feel like I'm an easy person to buy for. Beauty products, like nail polish and lipgloss sets, pedicure gift cards or ULTA gift cards are perfect gifts for me!

But not everyone is easy to buy for. I have lots of different people on my list this year, including dad and father in law, mom, friends and coworkers. I made a list of people who I need to buy for, and I just checked off several names with one trip to ULTA!

I spent about an hour in the store smelling the new fragrances, playing with the eyeshadow sets, swatching lip gloss on my hand and testing out under eye concealer (okay, this was for me, not for the people on my list!). There was seriously something for everyone on my list! If you're still looking for the perfect gift, look no further! Here are my top gift suggestions for the holiday....

For Moms or Mother in Laws...
Clarisonic Mia 2
Talk about the gift that keeps on giving. I'm a firm believer in investing in skincare. You only have one skin! I use my Mia 2 a few times a week. It makes my skin so soft and it's the only time I feel a deep clean on my face. If someone on your list already has one, get them a replacement brush! They are suppose to be switched out every 3 months and it's easy to slack on replacing.

Perfume
Ulta has an amazing free gift with fragrance purchase - a super comfy robe! Two gifts in one! Marc Jacobs' fragrance, Honey Eau de Parfum, has a sweet scent and is 2013 Allure Best of Beauty Award winner. Notes include pear, juicy mandarin, orange blossom and peach nectar.

For Dad, Father in Law, or brothers
Cologne sets
Ulta carries all of the popular men fragrances. Dolce & Gabana, Acqua Di Gio (got this one for my dad), Burberry Brit (got this one for my father in law), and more. I smelled Jay Z's new fragrance, Gold, and loved it.

For your sister or girlfriends
I grew up an only child, and always wanted siblings. After I married my hubby, one out of six kids, I got my wish! I love my siblings in laws. They are so much fun. Around the holiday time it's so much fun to shop for the girls! 

Lorac PRO Face

I love treating my sisters with beauty products. Ulta has a huge selection of makeup and bath and body sets. I love buying full sets like this Lorac PRO Face set. It has everything you need to create a full look, along with instructions on how to apply 


Philosophy Season of Sparkle
If your sisters or girlfriends like to be pampered, check out Philosophy's Season of Sparkle shower gel set is a great gift. The sweet scents are a shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, all in one.
Urban Decay Vice 2
This is an all star palette. 20 beautiful, edgy colors, that can be combined to create looks from day to night. 
Ulta Beauty Box
Ulta's Beauty Box is always a hit in my book. There are colors in this set for everyone. I love how they fold up into a pretty box that makes for great decor for a vanity or bathroom counter top.
For your female coworkers
Ulta has a large selection of beauty products you can mix and match, 5 items for $5. These make great stocking stuffers or secret Santa gifts!

Get Clean with Clarisonic

Have you ever tried a new product and thought, 'how did I live without this for so many years?' Well, that is what went through my mind when I first tried out my Clarisonic. My skin has never felt so clean!

This review is way overdue. I started using my Brazilliant Orange Clarisonic Mia 2 during the extremely hot NYC summer. The hubby and I would spend all day on the weekends exploring the city, going in and out of the steamy subway system and hitting the hot pavement. By the end of the day, the little makeup I wore would be totally erased from my face from sweat. I could not get the greasy or dusty polution feeling off of my skin with cleanser or a wash cloth alone. Using the Clarisonic made my skin feel squeaky clean. My skin looked brighter with only a couple of days of using it.

I have ultra sensitive skin, so I was a little timid to use the Mia at first. I purchased the Delicate brush head to use and haven't had any irritation. The Mia comes with the Sensitive brush, which I let my husband use (he loves my Mia too!). I wash my face two times a day, but only use my Clarisonic about 5-7 times a week.

The Clarisonic Mia 2 comes with the following:
*Universal Voltage Charger
*Sensitive Brush Head
*1 oz. trial size cleanser
*Protective travel case
Retails at $149 at Clarisonic.com

The Mia and Mia 2 are great for traveling and every day use. If you are looking to take your skincare routine to the next level, this is it. I always tell my husband, you only get one skin, so take care of it!

A Clarisonic is also a great gift for any special lady on your Holiday shopping list. It's a higher price point than most, so round up your siblings and go in on this for mom. It's the gift that keeps giving!
