a men pure malt

This limited edition scent will be loved by any guy on your list from 25 and up. A Men Pure Malt is a strong, sexy woody scent and you only need a spray or two to have your guy smelling great all day. A definite standout its one of my favorite male fragrances to date. Its unique and you will love smelling it on him as much as he loves wearing it.

A*MEN by Thierry Mugler ‘Pure Malt’ Fragrance for Men (Limited Edition)
Pure Malt is a unique olfactory creation inspired by the world of luxury spirits. An innovation in perfumery, Pure Malt honors the tradition of Scotland’s peaty whiskeys with its smoky and sensual woody accents. Thierry Mugler brings a unique savoir faire to create Pure Malt. The result is a surprising fragrance of elegance and sophistication in which several malts collide, exciting the senses and revealing a truly noble and refined masculinity.

 

For Her:

Black-XS-for-Her-Paco-Rabanne-For-Women-EDT-80ML

Black XS is spicy, sexy, and  sweet with a little bit of an edge! This is a great fragrance if you are looking for something that is sexy without being too heavy. A great choice for day or night BlackXS is a really gorgeous scent.

Black Xs Perfume by Paco Rabanne
The spicy, moderate bouquet of Black XS cologne for women by Paco Rabanne makes it an excellent selection for high achievers with active lifestyles. First introduced in 2007, this mature but casual fragrance has a rich and aromatic blend of notes, including tamarind blossom, massoia wood, cranberry, vanilla, hellebore rose and pink peppercorns. Just a small splash of Black XS on your neck or wrists provides you the perfect complement for a broad variety of encounters.

alien

I really love this edition of Alien. It’s so long wearing I love a hint of it stays on my clothes. It has all the great notes of the original but this is a softer, warmer version. On top of being a great scent the bottle is simply gorgeous.

Alien Liqueur de Parfum by Thierry Mugler
A limited edition fusion between Alien and the world of sprits thanks to a patented method inspired by traditional techniques used to produce the finest Rums. Alien Liqueur de Parfum is aged in toasted oak caskets to reveal a rich and sensual fragrance with woody amber notes that are subtly almondy. It is available in 30ml EDP bottle as limited edition. Alien Liqueur de Parfum was launched in 2013.

fragrance1.7ozvanillapassionfruit

I a a huge fan of Lavanila fragrances and the Vanilla Passion Fruit is a whole new scent to adore. While most of the Lavanila line scents fall in the clean and crisp category the Passion Fruit version has definitely has a sexy vibe. It still has all the fresh, fruity vibes of the other lines just with a little more kick while still not overpowering. Great for women of any age.

The Healthy Fragrance Vanilla Passion Fruit
The Tropical Scent of Temptation. A crisp, tropical explosion of Passion Fruit, Guava and Peach Nectar steeped in warm base of sandalwood and Madagascar Vanilla. Created by master natural perfumers and backed by research, this love-attracting scent is uniquely infused with a romantic blend of powerful aphrodisiacs prized for their seductive properties.

Erin’s Christmas Must-Have #10

bannerfans_9855103(1)

If you have someone special you want to pamper this year spoil them with a top notch spa facial they can do at home. Or if you have a special holiday party coming up and want to look your best under the mistletoe this one is not to be missed.

The Kinara Red Carpet facial is a 5 piece kit. It contains a facial peel, neutralizer, mask, treatment blow and brush. The peel removes dead skin cells to make your skin refined, brighter and more hydrated. The neutralizer revitalizes dull, tired skin by deep cleaning. The mask hydrates, soothes and oxygenates your skin. Everything is applied with the treatment brush and bowl that’s included.

My skin is on the sensitive side so per the instructions I have been using this once a week. If you have have oily skin  you can use it every day for 30 days and then twice a week after that. So how do you use it?

  1. Brush on one teaspoon of the peel, leave for 1-3 minutes feel a slight tingle
  2. Neutralize the peel. Brush on one teaspoon you feel a bit of a fizz when you apply it then let it sit for 60 seconds and wipe off.
  3. Next, brush on the hydrating mask and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  4. Rinse and you are done!

Even with just one use my skin felt fantastic. It leaves my skin feeling really smooth and the best part it how bright my skin looks. It adds a healthy glow that will have people asking what you are doing differently.

So maybe you are thinking $145 for an at home peel? Well my darlings this is not for just one peel the kit will actually give you 24 peels! So really you are looking at $6 per peel which is a steal compared to even the best deal at the spa. And if you order by 12/24 and get the sale price its actually only $4.83 per peel.

If you are looking to banish dull winter skin I would recommend this amazing kit that will have your skin glowing in no time!
