Perfect stocking fillers, to keep you glam, all through the holidays!

You know what MOST women like? Make-up and hair accessories - not because they are stereotypical, but because these things are practical and satisfy a need! This is why I am zooming in with goodies from Smash Box, Scunci and a few others for our Holiday Gift Guide this year, which all make great stocking stuffers!

I was lucky enough to get to try out all of the items pictured, which included a couple of GREAT brushes from Conair, which is one of my personal favorite brands! The infinityPro, tourmaline, ion-infused brush is perfect for my long, wavy, frizzy mess of a head of hair and makes getting where it needs to be a lot less of a struggle with aid to conditioning and less frizz! 

The second brush, the green colored You Brush is also tourmaline, ionic-infused and is great for creating an intense shine! 

I also got to try out severy kinda of hair band and a re-invented scrunchie, all from the well-known 

Sc√ľnci, who are also amongst my favorite brands! I loved the newly designed scrunchie and it kept

my hair up well! The hair bands were great, though I managed to break one in haste, the rest were fine and perfect for all the mom-hair days I have with all of the things that need to get done around the house on a daily bases that do not require me to style my hair!

I love the hair chalk, which comes in what can only be described as a mini hair straightening doppleganger with chalk instead of hot beds! My daughter had a lot of fun with these and wanted to make her hair cute with pink and green! We managed to do the pink, first, and it looked great and washed out straight away with no fuss or hassle - a great way to have a little fun with your hair without being permenently colored!

I really like the Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner, which is not usually my color at all, but I did recently get a orangy-red lipstick and tried it out with that and it worked very well - so much so that I am definitely going to use it more often in the future, when usually I would head towards the pinks!

The TouchBack Plus Shampoo and Conditioner and are great for color-treated hair, which was perfect timing because I had just dyed my hair the week this arrived, too! I found the idea behind the foam shampoo to be an interesting one and, once I got used to it, liked it a LOT! It doesn't lather up as much as some shampoos and that is the point! It cleans without all the unecssary extras and is complimented by the additional conditioner! 

Lastly, I have a Sun Bum PRO SPF 30 Face Stickwhich I haven't tried out yet but will do as soon as the weather gets a little warmer, but it looks good from the outside and I will update you when I have given it a try! I am like a vampire with very fair skin and so I need all the help I can get warding off all of those harmful rays!

I have thoroughlly enjoyed testing out all of these products and encourage you, happily, to head on over to any one of the afformentioned websites and check them out, today! You can fill a stocking [or ten] for some very happy souls this Christmas!!
