Gift Guide: Allyson's Favorites

Gift Guide: Allyson's Favorites

The holiday season is such a wonderful time to make others feel special, through spending quality time with them, supporting them, or treating them to something they'll love. It's also a time to *try* to find even a few minutes a day to slow down and treat yourself to things that make you feel special, too.

This gift guide is a collection of a few of my favorite things that make me feel good - both inside and outside. Whether you're looking for ideas for others, or for yourself, I know you'll love these products as much as I do.

    1. Emogene & Co. Glow Vitamin C Serum. This was the first product I developed, originally just for myself, and it remains one of my favorites to this day.
    2. Parker Lip Collection. If you know me, you know I'm always on the go, and having my lip/cheek tints in my bag are a lifesaver when I need to look and feel put together fast!
    3. Healer Balm. The results from this product continue to blow me away, whether it's for burns, scars, or dry skin. I use it for everything, especially in the cooler months!
    4. Nashville Skin Date Night Bright Pads. My favorite weekly exfoliator!
    5. Agent Nateur Collagen. I take this every morning in my coffee and have seen incredible results for my skin & hair. It's the only collagen I recommend!
