Haute Holidays: 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for Women + HUGE Giveaway!

The infamous line that it's always better to give than receive during the holiday season is, well, not entirely true.  It's also great to receive a little, right?  So I have compiled some of my favorite gift ideas for the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for Women as part of my "Haute Holidays" video series on my YouTube channel.

In addition to some fabulous gift ideas for your mother, boyfriend's mom, sister, BFF, or any other girl in your life, I will also be doing a huge giveaway!

1. Splendid Coronado Shopper Handbag
Splendid Coronado Shopper in Black/White is such a great bag for any woman due to its basic color which allows her to wear anything with it.  Not only that, but the spacious size of the interior lets a girl put her whole life in the handbag (which is what we do anyway, right?).

2. Frederic Fekkai Hair Products
I'll also be giving away three of my favorite hair products by Frederic Fekkai, which is the Pre-Style Thermal UV Protectant, Essential Shea Pot de Crème, and Brilliant Glossing Cream.

3. Bath & Body Works Goodies
Bath & Body Works has the best smelling candles that create an aromatic feeling throughout an entire room, and this year the company released mini mason jar sized candles in a multitude of delicious scents.  Therefore, I will be giving away a Cinnamon Frosting candle as well as their Cashmere Glow lotion and a small anti-bacterial sanitizer.

4. H&M Face Mask
This is pretty self explanatory, right?  Well, H&M's face masks are surprisingly fabricated by Estee Lauder which I learned from one of their in-store employees.  I love to throw one of these on before a big event or during an at-home pampering night.

5. Dermarose Skincare Products
Dermarose carries some of the most high-quality formulas for anti-aging in the skincare sector, and I absolutely fell in love with these two products.  Their Swiss Rose Stem Cell Anti-Aging Exfoliating Cleanse and Serum would be a really cute gift to package together for a pampering or spa gift to your mom.  For example, throw a candle, lotion, and face mask along with the Dermarose products into a basket and there you have a beautiful holiday gift for her.

6. Luv Ya Skin's Pumpkin Cleanser
As I've mentioned before, I love Luv Ya Skin's Pumpkin Cleanser which literally smells like a room full of pumpkin pie.  I desperately try not to lick my face after applying this cleanser.  You can't really go wrong with products that nurture a woman's skin or beauty.

7. Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips
The Sally Hansen nail strips are my go-to when I have no time to sit down and do my nails, or I'm out saving the world one crime at a time.  

8. Favorite CoverGirl Products
I've been loving CoverGirl's Capitol Collection which is inspired by the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, as they partnered with the fashion-fierce movie.  A great idea would be to package a bunch of products together as a "beauty gift" to a little sister or BFF.  My current favorites are the 241 Aquamarine InkIt Eye Liner, 800 Very Black Blaze Mascara, two CoverGirl Smoochies Lip Glosses, 320 Shadow Pot, and 640 Black Heat nail polish.

9. iPhone Case
You can't go wrong with a phone case as a gift, unless you get her a case for the wrong phone.

My Favorite Fall Skincare Line

One of my favorite new skincare discoveries for the fall season is Luv Ya Skincare, which is a comprehensive face line that offers formulations using natural active botanicals and pure essential oils.  I typically stick to Clean & Clear or Neutrogena for my daily facial cleanser, but after trying out this line I was highly impressed with the quality of ingredients in the products.

Luv Ya Skincare's Vitamin A Pumpkin Cleanser is like pumpkin pie in a bottle - seriously.  Applying this cleanser felt as if my face was devouring dessert, while providing nutrition to the face that firms and tightens.  Containing key ingredients such as Vitamin A and Beta Carotene, the formula left my skin feeling fresh and smooth.

After testing out the cleanser, I applied Luv Ya Skincare's Balancing Toner which helped cleanse a little deeper in the pores and really brightened up my face.  The toner contains a powerful ingredient, witch hazel, that I have used in the past and find it to effectively clean out my pores.

Aside from cleansing and toning, the skincare line digs a little deeper to refine the face and purify skin.  I also tried out the Kukui Nut Scrub as an exfoliator, which contains a volcanic source to wipe away dead cells without harsh abrasion.  I've used a lot of exfoliators that feel like my face is being ripped off, but this one is mild enough while still removing the dead skin with ease.  A few other favorites of mine are the C+ Collagen Serum and the Collagen Mask which made my skin feel absolutely amazing and gave my face a glow!  My skin is oily and sometimes skincare lines don't work well with my type, but Luv Ya Skincare really impressed me with the quick results.

As for daytime products, the SPF 30+ Moisturizer was the perfect enriching hydrator to put on under my makeup AND it blends well with cosmetics.  Do any of you know what I'm talking about?  There's nothing worse than applying a moisturizer that leaves your makeup looking like a greasy mess.  However, the SPF 30+ moisturizer contains no oil, which worked heavenly with my skin type.  

At night, I tried out the Intensive Eye Cream with Murumuru (I had no idea what this was prior to trying it out, but it's a fruit from the amazon rainforest rich in nutrition and moisture).  Let's just say I went to sleep with dark circles under my eyes and woke up looking refreshened.

I'm not the type to give good product reviews for products that I don't honestly think highly of, so believe me when I say that the quality of Luv Ya Skincare is amazing!  If you are looking for a new skincare line for the new season, check it out at LuvYaSkin.com
