Beauty Goodies and Gadgets Great For Gifting

If you are not already shopping for beauty gifts for your best gal pals, I have some bad news -- you are a little behind. Not to worry, I’ve found some beauty gifts that will please their recipients immensely and land you atop the bestie list for years to come.

Clinique Skincare Brush

Say goodbye to lackluster skin with the Clinique Skincare Brush. It uses an oval shaped angled brush with 35,000 tufted doomed tip bristles to target the contour areas of the face including around the nose, hairline and chin to deliver a gentle, effective clean.  $89.50


Talika Cream Booster 

Talika cream booster

Talika Cream Booster uses aerospace technology to boost the efficacy of skincare products. The electricity in the booster enhances the transfer of active ingredients deep into skin cells, while the light therapy works to re-activate and energize cells and the gentle vibration increases circulation. With Talika Cream Booster regular skincare will be sent into overdrive. $145


Red by Kiss Handle Less Blow Dryer

Red by Kiss Handle Less Blow Dryer will changes the way you blow dry hair, especially if you have naturally curly hair.  It has a 1875 watt motor and uses ceramic tourmaline technology to blow dry hair and keep cuticles flat to prevent frizz. $29.99

Happy Hands UV Nail Gloves 

Gel manicures are all the rage because they can't last 2 plus weeks. The downside of that long lasting flawless manicure is that the polish must be dried under a UV lamp. UV light ages the skin and can make hands appear years older than they are. The Happy Hands UV Nail Glove covers and protects the hands leaving the nail visible for polish. $9.99


Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift

Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift is an advance wrinkle treatment that aggressively combats wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven skin tone and dryness through the use of fast penetrating hyaluronic Acid and rare botanical extracts. It’s like a spa visit in a convenient little can that will work for your girls, no matter where they live.  $95


Clarisonic Pedi

Clarisonic Pedi uses  patented sonic frequency that oscillates back and forth at more than 300 movements per second to gently slough away dry, rough foot skin. With the Clarosonic Pedi, feet will always be sandal ready.  $199


Sedu Diamond Flat Iron

The Sedu Diamond Flat Iron is sleek, lightweight  styling tool with curved ceramic tourmaline plates that straightens hair in a flash leaving it shiny, soft, and frizz free. It has 6 digital temperature setting reaching up to 450 degrees fahrenheit and handy auto shut off feature for those forgetful days. $210


HoneyBelle Body Buffer

HoneyBelle Body Buffer uses simultaneous oscillating and zigzag motion to boost blood and lymphatic flow, stimulate collagen formulation and increase skin's elasticity. The end result is a reduction in cellulite and smoother skin. The buffer also works wonders on sore muscles to dissipate lactic acid buildup and promote quick recovery from strenuous workouts.  $395

TTB Files: My Beauty Faves for July

Each month on ThisThatBeauty I share my favorite products from the previous month. For July my favorites included  Trader Joes Virgin Coconut oil to keep my hair in check, PCA Skin Cream Cleanser to gently clean and balance my oily skin and  Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant to ensure I stay 'fresh and clean.'  

Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil

It seems my natural hair is running my life. I have finally figured out a routine that gets my hair styled in 30 minutes or less, that is after it is already clean and dry. This abbreviated styling time is attributed mostly to the use of Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil on my hair pre and post wash. To get a better understanding of coconut oil, click here and here. I do an overnight pre shampoo treatment with Trader Joe’s organic coconut oil once or twice per month. After washing and conditioning I add a small amount of coconut oil to damp hair and I also add a heat protectant and leave-in-conditioner before blow drying. This process leaves my hair soft and easy to manage. I can then style inbraids/cornrowsponytails/top knots and various updos.

Who It Might Work for and Why: According to the hair charts my hair is type 4b and 4c, if you have this type of hair you should most definitely try coconut oil [immediately, if not sooner  ] This will also work for anyone with dry, kinky, curly coily hair.

Bottom Line: Just get it. If you try it and don’t like it, use the rest of the jar to fry shrimp. (Pure deliciousness!)

TTBTip: Coconut oil will clog pores so avoid putting it directly on your scalp.

Price: $5.99
