Algenist 10 Day Tranformation Kit

I'm always on the fence about skincare gifts as they aren't as glam as makeup and fragrance  but we all need skincare and why not gift something a little special , or maybe it's you that would like a little TLC gift.

Algenist makes great skincare and great gifts.  The 10 Day Transformation Kit has some of their best products , ones I use all the time including the Splash  Hydrating Setting Mist and Complete Renewal Eye Balm. It's a great way to try the brand or have travel sizes of  favorites .

Set Includes:
1.5 oz Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser
1 oz Power Recharge Night Serum
,23 oz Complete Eye Renew Balm
1 oz Genius Ultimate Anti Aging Cream
1.3 oz Splash Hydrating Setting Mist.

Algenist 10 Day Tranformation Kit is $ 95 at Sephora ,  Algenist  and Space NK.

Gucci Illuminating Powder


One of the hottest products this holiday season is Gucci's Illuminating Powder.

Not only does Gucci not do a lot in the way of makeup, but just look at how pretty this is.  *Almost* too pretty to use.

The butterfly catches your eye first off . Then you notice the golden pale beige shimmering powder, called Sunstone.

Sadly, the butterfly seems to be an overspray. The few light swipes of the brush I've done so far have worn it off.  But you still have the luxurious powder, which goes on lightly giving a low to medium wattage radiant glow and is buildable . It's not big glitter or over the top shimmer and is very easy to wear. I show my swatch and the official image from Gucci. 

It's the perfect Winter pick me and party glow getter and comes in a logo'd black compact  with a mirror, and small brush in the lower compartment.

Gucci Illuminating Powder in Sunstone is LE and $ 53 at Saks, Gucci.com  , Neimans and more.
