Welcome to Part 2 of Our Beauty Holiday Gift Guide, Featuring Haircare and Beauty Gadgets!
Curated by Alterna Co-Owner, Katie Holmes, this holiday gift set reflects Katie’s travel must have’s for the woman on the go. Keep hair youthful-looking and fresh with the limited edition collection, hand-picked by Katie, which includes Caviar Replenishing Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, Bamboo Smooth Kendi Pure Treatment Oil, and Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Dry Shampoo.
While this may not fall under your traditional skincare category, rest assured that this set of four BB creams by Dr. Jart+ fully belongs here. With four beauty balms (the new foundation standard, in case you were wondering), this kit houses enough coverage power and skincare benefits to make it a worthy component of any beauty lover’s arsenal. Each Beauty Balm has a different skincare specialty, and my favorite happens to be the Water Fuse Beauty Balm, which provides the perfect amount of moisture in this intense winter dryness.
It’s no secret that I’ve been a longtime, die-hard fan of the Clarisonic Brush line, touting it as the cure-all for everything from a ruddy complexion to too-oily skin. New to the Clarisonic brush head family is the Deep Pore Brush Head, which when used with the accompanying cleanser and mask reduces pore appearance by 25% after just one use. While the Clarisonic brush itself comes in a plethora of fun colors, it’s no surprise that this beauty fanatic is more than a little obsessed with the lavender version. 😉
Great oral hygiene is a cornerstone of a solid beauty and health routine. For that reason, the Emmi-dent is the new beauty tool you are going to want to have. Emmi-dent uses 100% ultrasound technology to clean and whiten teeth – without brushing. Old-school brushing involves abrasive toothpastes and friction from a toothbrush, but Emmi-dent has a chip inside it that delivers 96 million ultrasonic (air oscillations) impulses per minute and transmits them via the bristles and nano-bubble toothpaste onto the teeth. The ultrasonic impulses are able to penetrate teeth and gums destroying bacteria and germs where bristles can’t reach. Nano-bubble cleaning removes plaque, tartar, food scraps and other impurities. All in all, it is a kinder way to “brush” your teeth.
