Christmas201400021

I am SUPER impressed with all of Mary Kay’s holiday sets this Christmas. They’re fun, they’re pretty, they smell amazing. So many wonderful products to pick from – might as well grab them all!

I am BEYOND obsessed with their hand creams. Below I’ve tried the Vanilla Berry and Vanilla Mint – both smell good enough to eat! The cream smooths over your achey/wintery hands and does the trick immediately!

Above we have their Shower gel and Body Butter – and the set comes in an adorable tin. It’s the gift that comes in a gift box! Perfect! Done and done!

Erin’s Christmas Must-Have #9!

Make Her Up Must Have's 2014

My must have #9 clean teeth. Ok I might have a little too much fun brushing but it feel therapeutic at times. And you may say “Erin, are you crazy? Who wants a toothbrush” And I’m with you on that you stick a regular brush in a stocking prepare to duck when your kid opens it. But who doesn’t love a really amazing toothbrush and its the type of thing its easy to want but sometimes we won’t budget for ourselves.

CYMERA_20141209_162619

I used to have a Sonicare and the charger got lost so I have been trying other kinds of brushes both manual and electric but something was always missing. Then this little heart breaker the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean entered my life and it was love at first brush. First off it comes in black? A black toothbrush? My signature color now in a brush, swooning.

But don’t let the cool new color options fool you there is much more to this brush.This high tech electric toothbrush has an elegant, modern look the handle has a nice heft to it feels more like ceramic then plastic. And boy does she clean, it has 5 different mode to clean even whitening and gum care! And recharging is a breeze just by drop it into its heavyweight glass tumbler or via its USB-powered case when you’re traveling. For the clean freak or techie in your life they will love this gift. Now excuse me I need to go brush my teeth.

Philips-Sonicare-AirFloss

Ok so I might be a brushing addict. You can ask Jocelyn after being friends for almost 30 years even she thinks I am crazy how much  I like to brush my teeth. My secret I hate to floss. My teeth are crowded on the bottom which becomes floss tug of war then I win when it slams into my gums making me wince. Not so much fun.

When I heard about the Sonicare AirFloss I was intrigued. Could it keep my from lying to my dentist about supposed religious flossing habits and get the little buggers clean?  I love it. I can fill the chamber with water or mouthwash (my fav) and just line it up between my teeth and push the button.A burst of air sends the liquid between my teeth removing plaque and food brushing left behind. And using it with mouthwash leaves my mouth feeling super fresh and clean. The AirFloss is as fun to use as it is functional. And who doesn’t love a clean mouth?

Philips Sonicare AirFloss 89.99
Give the gift of your dental hygienists’ love with the Philips Sonicare AirFloss, which cleans your entire mouth in just 30 seconds and is proven to remove 5X more plaque in between teeth than a manual brush, Colorful interchangeable nozzles makes it a great gift for yourself or to share.
