Erin’s Christmas Must-Have #10

 

It’s that time of year again. Jocelyn and I countdown 10 of our favorite things perfect for spoiling someone on your list. The hard part is picking only 10!

This year I had to start my list with a showstopper. I originally thought this would be a good gift for my sister in law but I love it so much it might be a Christmas gift for me.

First thing about this necklace is its simply beautiful. It was one of those items you open and just can’t stop staring at. I love the long length its adjustable and works with so many looks. I have worn this out a few times and it gets lots of compliments.

And on top of being a beautiful necklace I would wear just because this little locket holds fragrance beads! The lockets comes with three different great scents Japanese Agarwood, Tuscan Fig and French Clary Sage. I can’t decide which fragrance I love best and found mixing them has been my favorite way to wear.

This necklace would make a great gift for any lady on your list, trick will just be remembering to wrap it and hand it over. Might be a good idea to get two.

Introducing Pevonia Botanica!

Christmas201400002

I was recently introduced to a new luxury skincare line called Pevonia. I’ve been using the line for about a month now, and I’ll be reviewing the products I’ve tried over the next couple weeks. To start, I’d like to give you a quick intro into the brand:

As a worldwide leader in professional skincare, Pevonia was the first company to develop a Spa Skincare Line exclusively for elite spas and Professional Aestheticians. Our products launched in 1991 fully recognizing that the most effective skincare ingredients can be found in the safest source on earth, in nature. By combining effective, safe and natural ingredients with decades of experience in professional skincare, Pevonia continues to be the global leader in skin rejuvenation and health.

First: Phyto-Gel Cleanser ($41.00)

Foam away impurities! Enticingly aromatic, Pevonia’s Phyto-Gel Cleanser provides a delightful natural soft lather for deep cleansing. Saponaria, Rosemary, Lemon, and Pine precisely blend to rid your skin of impurities and surface toxins. Non-alkaline and non-drying, this gel is suited for all skin types.

I’ve been using this cleanser every morning in my shower – and I absolutely love it. I need a soft, gentle cleanser that will not only clean my skin, but remove all my excess makeup. This cleanser is just the product to cover all my needs. It doesn’t dry my skin out – it leaves it feeling clean and refreshed!

Second: Combination Skin Lotion ($30.50)

Refresh and brighten! Pevonia’s alcohol-free Combination Skin Lotion helps you face the day with balanced, radiant skin by combining Aloe for its hydrating benefits with Lactic Acid for its oil-control capability.

I follow up the cleanser with this safe and gentle lotion. This is a lotion for combination skin, which is exactly what I have. My skin is neither dry nor oily, and this lotion hits the nail on the head. After using this product, my skin does not feel heavy, or greasy as is sometimes the case with face lotion.

I am really impressed with this line that I hadn’t heard about until they sent me these products. I was not paid for this post, the opinions are 100% mine.
