So the holidays are around the corner, and if you are anything like me you have already started your holiday shopping! K-Beauty (Korean Beauty) has been taking the west by storm, and I have been in love with a lot of products for a very long time. If you or someone you know would love to receive some awesome beauty items this holiday season may I make a few recommendations? ūüôā

 

Can’t Go Wrong With Sheet Masks!

Awhile ago I did my favorite sheet mask post, where I discussed my fave masks!  Now as much as these are terrific for everyday use, for the holidays it might be fun to do something a little nicer, or even more festive and fun!

I am such a fan of all of these masks. My favorite it the broccoli/vitality one. They do a great job at keeping my skin looking and feeling great! I also love how versatile these are, and also how inexpensive they are as well. I usually buy them as a multipack

 

Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask

The packaging might leave a lot to the imagination, but don’t let that fool you. This is one of the BEST sheet masks on the market. Snails, bee venom, and other fantastic ingredients ¬†that are perfect for healthy skin. I love this for its hydrating, and anti aging properties!!! Definitely a MUST TRY!

Honorable Mentions

These are other masks I enjoy a lot as well!!!

Haul :: Cosmetic Love – Major Sample Haul

I am in the market to try out some new items. And I LOVE cosmetic-love.com for it. They offer a large variety of sample you can purchase, and free shipping with no minimum purchase amount. Now when I mean I purchased the samples, I mean you get like 20 samples of the same product for like 3-5 dollars. This has been essential for me especially when I am trying out new items. By the time the samples are used up I know if the product is working for me or not, and if I should invest in a full size. So I got a bunch of things to try!

I also got some refills of products AND am trying a few new things as well.
