Holiday Gift Guide: The Beauty Buff

Beauty Gifts Guide

Winter weather has a way of leaving us with a “blah” attitude about our appearance. Wind, hail, slush, freezing rain… they don’t take kindly to skin and hair. But sometimes, simply wearing a signature scent will help you sparkle. Or maybe it’s an at-home facial that will help you shine.

This year take Jack Frost head on! Don’t surrender your beauty regime because of the chill in the air. Here are a few gifts for the beauty buff looking to recharge and revamp her look this winter.
