I adore the holiday season. The lights, the music, the food, and of course being with family.
What I do not care for is how rushing about, and yes, the stress, can cause damage to my skin, hair, and break up my beauty routine!
Today I am sharing with you five amazing products that can help get you through the stressful holiday season beautifully!

Let’s go down the list of each product and I will tell you what I love about them!
First up we have a brand we all know, and trust, ChapStick®.
I have used ChapStick since I was a kid, and that is a long time ladies, but what I did not know was that ChapStick has some very modern products and I am in love with them!
They do! It is called ChapStick Total Hydration Lip Scrub.
I only recently found out and I was thrilled because not only is it a well-known brand that I have used, and trusted for decades, but it is very affordable, and it works great, offering advanced ingredients, like Argan Oil, Omegas 3/6/9 and more, to leave lips a looking and feeling healthy and beautiful, which is especially important during your busy holiday season.
As if that is not cool on it’s own ChapStick also offers ChapStick Total Hydration Moisture & Tint and it is the perfect way to keep your lips feeling soft and having just the right tint of color. By “right” tint of color I mean That it actually enhances your lips natural color! How cool is that? Plus it is made with 100% naturally sourced ingredients, including advanced ingredients like Rosehip Seed Oil. It is available in three shades – Merlot, Coral Blush and Rose Petal. I tried out Merlot and love it.
Get both of these must have lip care products at the ChapStick Shop.
This next item, I am way more excited about than I thought I would be! Ladies, this is not just a gorgeous fragrance for yourself, but a must buy for all the ladies on your holiday shopping list! Katy Perry’s Mad Love Fragrance.
This fun, flirty, fragrance was developed in collaboration with Katy Perry. It is mischievous, sexy, and totally irresistible! The top notes open up with Mara Strawberry, Lady Apple Sorbet, and pink grapefruit. Then, the floral notes open up with peony petals, and sun-kissed jasmine, and the hypnotic pull of bleeding heart flower. As if our senses have not been mesmerized enough we then have an absolute heart melting dry down of coconut wood, skin musk, and sandalwood!
I have to say, the more this developed with my skin chemistry the more I fell in love with it. My favorite part was the dry down, and I do want you to know that this has the longest dry down phase of any perfume I have tried recently! It was very impressive how long the scent lasted on my skin. I did not have to re-apply at all for 16 hours! I could even still smell the faint aroma of Mad Love when I woke up the next day.
Katy Perry’s tip: “I never spritz on my skin. I always spritz and walk into it and I like to spray on my hair.”
Great minds think alike as they say because I do the same thing.
There are always two things that seem to suffer the most during the hectic holidays for me and that is my skin, and my hair. I am now going to show you two great products that can really help.
The first is Dr. Brandt 3-D Filler Mask.
Dr. Brandt 3-D Filler Mask is revolutionary in that it is the first leave on mask I have ever heard of. It also is a volumizing facial mask that is the first cosmetic smoothing leave on mask to PLUMP UP the volume! It literally plumps and fills out wrinkles, and visually reshapes your natural face contour allowing the face to quickly take on a more youthful appearance.
Holidays or not, I need this in my life and I am so happy to say that I love it, it works!
The last beauty product I want to share with you today is from another brand I have used for decades, Paul Mitchell. Paul Mitchell Marula Oil Hairspray is a dream come true! I do not like having heavy, sticky hair that my husband can’t run his fingers through, and I promise you that this hair spray does hold it’s own against those thick sticky hair sprays when it comes to hold, without the stickiness!
Not only can you run your fingers through your hair after using Paul Mitchell Marula Oil Hairspray
, but you will feel absolutely no stickiness, even if you spray it directly on your skin. I did this! I sprayed it all over my arm and it felt good, no stick, and actually made my skin on my arm feel nourished! Wow!
Lightweight, replenishing, and flexible this is all you need to keep your hair looking perfect, while making it healthier during the holidays.
Save your hair, save your lips, save your skin, and spray on a little luscious scent with my Top 5 Beauty Essentials for surviving the holiday season!
