Give the Gift of Great Skin | Skincare Sets Holiday 2016

give the gift of great skin holiday sets 2016::: press sample / affiliate links :::

You don't need me to tell you that holiday beauty product launches are in full swing. Mainly, because they've been slowly eking out since September... I tend to think of makeup sets around this time of year, but there also happens to be quite a few skin related sets in on the fun. As a skincare lover, I am very interested in the trend, as a set usually saves you a little coin compared to full size, and it lets you test more formulas from a brand. All good things.

Live Without Leaks | Poise Impressa Bladder Supports Pt. 1

leak free with poise impressa bladder supports (2)

This post was sponsored by Poise Impressa as part of an Ambassador Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary product to facilitate my review.

Girl supplies. We all have ours. It's interesting to think how they change with age... From Bonne Bell lip balms (Sugar Plum was always a personal favourite) to roll on body glitter (ah, the 90's...) to black liner (lots of it) to concealer, the perfect neutral blush, and eye cream. The constant evolution. Of course, there are always 'other' supplies. The ones not as often chatted about, but never the less essential to our well being and confidence.Today we're going to be chatting up one of such items, specifically, the Poise Impressa Bladder Supports.

As most beauty fans know, you've usually got to act fast if you're going to snag the holiday items you want. Limited edition goodies are highly sought after, and there never seems to be enough to go around.It doesn't help that they seem to launch earlier and earlier every year.... That is one thing I love about the newest shade in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick range: It's permanent! Allison is a new friend, as part of the Holiday Kiss Collection (exclusive to Sephora), and she's gorgeous.

Ahoy-hoy! Sorry, I couldn't help it. It's just not a phrase that works itself into conversation very often. How does it tie in today? Ahoy Soap Company, obviously. It's all about the small business and their amazing small batch products I was able to discover thanks to Van City Box. I know, it's been very subscription box-y around theses parts, but there are so many that just don't get enough attention. Van City Box focuses on finding great products made in Vancouver and the surrounding BC areas. They're all about discovering products made locally and supporting small business. I may not live in Vancouver, but I can definitely get behind their cause.

December. It's lurking. Obviously, it brings Christmas and the fun and stress of the holidays, but it also brings the seriously cold weather. Blerg. I'm Canadian, have always lived in Canada, and save for a handful of years living in Toronto, have lived in a snow-belt. And I still don't like winter. I know I'm not alone on my dislike of the season, but I do like that it means plenty of opportunities for new skincare. Like the Melbourne brand Metta Skincare, which you can so handily find in the December Pearlesque Box.
