beauty gifts for the holidays

Finding a gift for a beauty fan can be hard sometimes as they seem to have everything. I was recently sent a few things that I thought would make for a great gift basket for a beauty lover. Products Like Teeth whitening, charcoal, and crystal deodorant.

CRYSTAL is perfect for a very health conscious people. This is made from minerals. It has no aluminum and is paraben free. In addition, there are no use of artificial fragrances, colors or any silicones.  Not everyone can or wants to use these things and that’s ok.

Another great thing is that the coverage lasts for 24 hours!

You can get an unscented or in a few different natural fragrances like freshly minted.

CRYSTAL does come in different forms, in a stone or in a more traditional stick if you are more comfortable that way.

Have you ever brushed your teeth with charcoal toothpaste before? The first time I saw it, I was a little intimidated it, I’ll admit it. It’s black, I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. I was really surprised though with the results. Dental Guru is Fluoride free which so many love and freshens your breath as it’s flavored with peppermint.

The activated charcoal has a really unique absorbing quality that helps with fighting those stains from coffee or tea. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should really check it out. It’s very affordable and can be found on Amazon. For a 6 pack it’s under $20.

Want to try a Professional whitening system but not sure which one? Check out Luster Pro Light Dental Whitening System. Not only is it enamel safe (huge score there!) but it will help you get 6 whole shades lighter in only 30 minutes.

The system is really easy to use and is only 3 steps.

1.    The prep. You use the accelerince for 10-15 seconds
2.    Apply the stain lifting serum to EACH tooth and make sure you let it dry for 20 seconds
3.    Boost with the Luster Pro Light for 2 minutes

That’s all that’s involved. There are no treys or strips that you have to put on your teeth. It’s really easy. Luster suggests that if you want an extra boost that you brush with their Luster Power White Pro Toothpaste which is included in this kit. You can also brush with a Pro sonic Toothbrush (not included in this kit. I can say brushing with a power toothbrush is amazing, and I do recommend it.

All three of these products are very affordable and are great for the beauty lover and can be put in the stocking as well if you want to. I would love to know if you have tried any of these products before and what you think.
