Can you believe that we are in the single digit countdown to Christmas? This month has flown by and I’m in manic mode to get all my Christmas shopping done. Every single year I manage to get all my shopping done and then I remember that I haven’t bought anything for stockings yet! Please tell me I’m not the only one who seems to do that. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime and two day because it saves me every.single.time.
If you’re still looking for some fun beauty items for the beauty obsessed, here are a few of my favorites. I may have splurged and added a few to my own stocking too. 😉

I was a total skeptic on these at first, but they are actually pretty nifty. The premise is that they prevent the huge hair dent that comes from typical hair ties when you wear your hair in a pony tail. I was really worried that they would get tangled in my hair, but they slip out easily when I remove them. You can purchase them at Sephora.
Maple Holistics Dead Sea Mud Mask
I’ve totally been digging the masks lately! This mask is made of 100% Dead Sea mud and helps to restore and rejuvenate your skin leaving is radiant and more toned. It has a really earthy scent, but it’s not overpowering. I felt like my skin felt smoother and glowed more after a use or two. They are also running a promotion right for free samples of some of their items if you’re interested. You can read more about the details here.
Macadamia Foaming Volumizer Mousse
First things first, I love the scent of this product! This mousse has heat protection qualities and provides a ton of volume and lift without leaving your hair feeling super crunchy or sticky. I’ve used it with my hair worn naturally (curly) and straightened with great results. Available at Ulta.com.
Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color
This two step system lipstick is amazing! You simply apply a thin layer of color to your lips, let dry and then use the conditioning balm for shine and moisture. This lipcolor doesn’t fade, bleed or transfer onto teeth or cups and stays on all day! I was shocked at how well it stayed on and definitely will be buying a few more colors. I love how moisturizing it feels too (there’s nothing worst to me than a dry, cakey lipcolor).
The only con: there was a bit of a learning curve to using the applicator and being precise. Since it stays on so well, you don’t want to mess up during application as it’s difficult to get off (my esthetician was surprised at how well it stayed on as well). Available at Amazon.
Eprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner
My naturally curly hair has a tendency to get dry, brittle and I feel like I’m always battling frizz. Adding heat styling and color and my hair begs for extra moisture. I’m totally digging this leave-in conditioner to help me fight the dry, rough hair battle. It calms the frizz, moisturizes and helps prevent breakage which are all things that I desperately need. It’s a huge help for combing out all the tangles in my hair too so I don’t have to spend forever battling knots and tangles. Available at Amazon.
Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity Exfoliating Polish
This exfoliating polish gently exfoliates away all the dead skin through chemical and physical means to allow your skin to glow and look radiant without harsh side effects. I wouldn’t use it everyday as I think that would be too harsh, but it’s perfect to use two or three times weekly. I like that it’s lightly scented (I’m not a fan of strongly scented products) and has moisturizing botanicals as well to pamper exfoliated skin. Available at Amazon.
Foster Grant EyeZen Digital Glasses
I’m sure you’re questioning why this is on a beauty stocking stuffer roundup, but anyone who suffers from strained eyes knows how that can wreak havoc on how you feel and look. My eyes get extremely red and dry (yuck!) when I spend too much time at the computer, but these glasses are great for alleviating eye strain. They allow your eyes while using digital devices (computer, tablet, phones) to relax by adding a slight magnification to the bottom of the lenses. Also, I love adding glasses to my look. They can be the perfect fashion accessory to an outfit and really complete the look. Amazon has a ton of styles to choose from. The Sadie are my fav!
Schmidt’s Rose + Vanilla Natural Deodorant
I’m obsessing over this new deodorant. First off, it doesn’t have any of the nasty chemicals that are found in traditional deodorants, it smells awesome and it actually works. I’ve been a sweating Betty after having kiddos (thanks hormones) and this works wonders for me. I’m hooked and won’t be turning back to traditional deodorants any time soon. Available at Amazon.
