Beauty Guru: My beauty holiday wish list

Wish lists are wonderful!! They sure take the guesswork out of buying gifts for your loved ones and friends, and they take the conjecture out of those wanting to buy you a gift. Additionally in this hectic life, a wish list saves a lot of time, because you can easily shop online and search for the best deals.

I live in rural Upper Peninsula of Michigan and shopping is very limited, unless you drive to Marquette or Green Bay which is a good three hour drive. So viewing my family and friends wish lists saves me a whole lot of time. With that said, I have started on my wish list, and below are a few items I hope to see under the tree this holiday season.

1. Mia2 Skin Cleansing System by Clarisonic - This handy device looks like it can do wonders to bring about a glowing complexion. It gently removes impurities, and it states that it will cleanse "6x better than washing with your hands alone in just 60 seconds." This product has great reviews and people claim their complexion has improved dramatically. I can understand how this product can improve your complexion because stimulation of the skin cells promotes cell turnover, and it sloughs off dead skin cells. This sounds like a product I really need to brighten up my dull complexion.

2. Medicool Manicure Pedicure Caddy With Rechargeable Battery - This product claims that it will provide a spa quality manicure and pedicure. My nails seem to be more brittle during the winter months and therefore needs more maintenance. Additionally, I pretty much ignore my feet during the winter months and I think this product will motivate me to do more pedicures.

3. Costal Scents 22 Piece Brush Set - This set includes large fan, powder buffer, round powder, flat stippling, angle blush, foundation, concealer, large shadow, blender, doe foot blender, dome shadow, dome blender. I have a few makeup brushes and I do believe the correct makeup brush really aids in the application of makeup. There are 22 brushes that fit in a matte black Coastal Scents roll up case. The brushes are mixture of synthetic and natural fibers. These brushes had great reviews and I would like to give them a try.

So have you done your wish list? Have you thought about making a wish list? Do your friends and family a favor and let them know you have one. There are numerous sites that allow you to set up a wish list.
