I love the holiday season in ways that most people don’t understand. At my house, the tree is up and decorated the day after Thanksgiving, boxes of presents start accumulating within hours, and the kitchen quite frequently smells of Mom’s homemade apple cider or the freshly decorated gingerbread houses. But as much as I love getting into the spirit, getting myself into the mall is a totally different story. I hate braving the crowds, fighting people for the last available (insert hot, coveted item here), and the indecision I face while picking out the perfect present. Suffice to say that by the time December 25th rolls around, I’m utterly exhausted. But, the excruciating amount of holiday shopping has exposed me to immense amounts of new beauty and grooming products which I’m proud to introduce as this year’s best beauty buys.
