The year of the Ox is almost here! Lunar New Year, also referred to as Chinese New Year, will happen on February 12, 2021.

This means we have a gift giving opportunity! Red and gold are very lucky colors, so it’s only natural that any gifts given during this time reflect this lucky hues. I hope the new year brings us lots of luck! The world needs it, wouldn’t you agree?

I searched the web for lucky gifts that every beauty fan will love. Of course, there are non-beauty gifts too such as earrings, tea, and macarons! Yummy!!

Without further ado, here are a few fabulous gift ideas for the Lunar Year New!

Fall skincare routine

The fall season has arrived! As the autumn season moves in, temperatures are moving into moderate territory. This means it is a great time to mix up my skin routine!

If you are like me, you spent a lot of time outside this summer. After all, it was one of the few places we could go during lockdown. This left my skin a little blotchy and dry. Therefore, the fall season is all about repair! This dark spot remover by ReVive is ideal for lightening dark spots left by the sun. It really brightens my skin. I use the Elemis Moisturizer in the morning, and the ReVive dark spot corrector at night as my moisturizer. It works really well!

This ReVive neck cream is a favorite of mine. I have been purchasing it since I was 28, and now I am well into my 40’s. It has spf protection, and keeps my neck firm. I love it!

Colleen Rothschild Honey Vanilla Collection

In the fall season, I love gourmand and warm scents. This honey vanilla collection from Colleen Rothschild is perfect for autumn. It’s warm, and the perfect amount of silky sweetness. Plus, it does a great job of cleaning, and smoothing, my skin.

I have purchased the body butter in the past. I definitely go through this jar! One lasts me about six months. It smells so good, plus it corrects dry skin; leaving it smooth. It’s a must-have not only for fall, it’s a must-have all year long! Love it!

OK raise your hand if you hair is terrible right now! I spent the summer in the sun, and in the pool. Not only that, I have not had my highlights touched up since the first week of March! Our salons just reopened, so I need to run down there and get some color repair done. Aside from that, my hair has split ends, chlorine damage, and sun damage. Thank goodness for this hair care collection from Colleen Rothschild! I am using this fabulous hair mask every Sunday, and it is really helping my dry hair. I also love this hair serum, which is great to put on after I dry my hair. It smooths down my hair leaving it soft and controlled. Love that! I’m not sure how I survived before owning it!

The fall season is all about repairing the damage to our skin and our hair from all the fun we had in the sun over the summer! Everything I am showing in this post will help repair and correct summer damage. I love these products!

Thanks for stopping by!

Elemis Superfood Glow

I have been blowing through my skin care products this summer; so when Elemis sent me their Superfood Glow cleanser and primer, I was thrilled! Summer is a heavy skin care season due to all the outside activities, sun, water activities, and wind! If you are like me, you are outside more during the summer months, than any other season, exposing your skin to the elements. This means we all need extra skin care, and extra protection!

I am in love with the Elemis Superfood AHA Glow Cleansing Butter. It not only purifies and removes makeup and daily pollutants, it has a slight pumpkin scent! Love a pumpkin scent during the late summer months as we start to transition to a fall schedule with school starting; and we start eyeing fall merchandise for our wardrobes! One more cool thing about the Elemis Superfood AHA Glow Cleansing Butter, if you leave it on for ten minutes, it doubles as a mask! Love that! It’s a cleanser and mask in one jar!!

Are you wearing makeup this summer? Yeah, me neither. I only put on makeup about once a week. That’s why I am thankful for this Elemis Superfood Glow Priming Moisturiser. You can wear it alone, without makeup, or use it as a primer for makeup. It adds just the right amount of luminosity. Love!
