1. Beauty bargains and stocking stuffers!


    Winter can be rough on a body. Cold harsh weather and hot, dry heat can chap, dry, and crack a person from head to toe. Here are some of favourite beauty bargains that soften and soothe like products that cost many times more.  Our beauty bargains are also fabulous stocking stuffers! 

    Yardley London’s sweet seasonal Limited Edition Bath Bars in Honey Vanilla Crème and Sugar Plum Blossom are full of moisturizing ingredients so they won’t dry your skin.  These bars look and smell great in a guest bathroom or stacked in your linen closet. At only 99 cents, you can buy bowl-full. 

    LypSyl Lip Balm is formulated with pure Swedish beeswax, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, and vitamins to heal and moisturize lips. In Honey-Berry and Vanilla-Plum.  These make great stocking stuffers for men too! Only $2.99.NLP

    Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Sticks give lips a sexy bittlpsen look. They will delight makeup minimalists as well as beauty mavens.  The pencils contain fruit extracts along with mango and Shea butter to leave lips smoother after only three days, even when they are bare.


    The twist-up pencils never need to be sharpened. There are eight shades from natural pinks and peaches to rich raisin. Less than $10 each.


    Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E with its recognizable sweet vanilla scent is still our go-to fix for dry skin.  Some people complain that it feels a little greasy going on, but few things work as well in a cold dry weather. It sinks into skin after a few minutes and provides a long lasting moisture barrier. For body butter lovers, try Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Cocoa Body Butter Ultra Moisturizing Cream. This new formula contains Palmer’s Natural Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter. It feels lighter going on, but is still very moisturizing. Under $10 at many big box and drug stores.
