Beauty presents are truly the gift that keeps on giving. This holiday season, forgo the flowers that die in a few days, save yourself the anxiety of trying to guess their size, and no one wants another scarf, who are you kidding? Products! All we want are products! Products for relaxing, products for a younger look, products for a night out, Products for curing, products for anything! Don’t be such a Grinch and just grab a last minute coffee table book. Good beauty products will not end up in the garbage, or be an insult, or get tossed to the back of the coat closet, or collect dust on the bookshelf. I’m not saying to go buy someone wrinkle creams and pimple products, but instead, offer up some self-care, it is the ultimate act of love.
Here is the letter I recently mailed to the North Pole:
First off I have to say you look great! I love that red coat on you, it really flatters you. Also have you been working out?
As I’m sure you are aware, I’ve been really good this year! I just want to explain a few incidents...when I rapidly press the close button in the elevator when someone is entering the lobby, it’s not how it looks. About all my Uber cancellations...well, that’s not my fault. That time I took cash from my daughter's piggy bank to pay for a delivery...it was an emergency. As for my recycling habits...I’ll take a lump of coal on that one. On the other hand, my daughter wearing my cashmere sweaters to school must count for something! Did I mention how great you look?
Below are a few items that you can add to my list:
24 products from one of the best and most effective lines on the market, yes please! And it’s about half the valued price. Also, if you buy it today you qualify for the Barney’s Beauty Bag! I’m sure Mrs. Clause would love it, if not I’ll happily take it off your hands.
Only the worlds best hairdryer, which would save me time, allowing for more good deeds. It’s a limited edition that comes with four favorite products, so you need to capitalize on this moment.
I have had mine for 20 years, and while it’s survived showers, college, and kids, I’m ready for an upgrade.
Obviously, you know that I’ve bought this before and worship it, so you know it won’t go to waste. The Nectar-8 smells like heaven, and the glow I get from it makes me want to be a better person.
My all-time, life changing, holly grail of eye products and it’s sold out at some stores already. A serious must have under the tree.
Any of the facial tools from Foreo, I’m not picky. The UFO looks cool, just saying.
I’m going to need this gem around the holidays. Also, natural ingredients are a head start on my New Years' resolution.
It’s so cute! And seriously one of the best lip balms. And so cute!
Knowing my fetish for fragrance, you have to admit burning a candle all day is not the safest, plus this fills a room so much faster.
Waking up without pillow lines and a puffy face is really a service to everyone I encounter until noon, don’t you think?
Could they be any prettier?! You should look into their wrapping paper manufacturer.
I’ve run out of the resurfacing and miss it everyday since! Please. Pretty please.
I appreciate you taking the time to look at my list, and check it twice.
The always perfect, nothing is ever my fault, Kira.
