Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Goodies for Your Lips and Hair from Softlips, scunci and ConAir Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/15) CLOSED
Sunday, December 05, 2010 Posted by Dina N
I am a big fan of the scunci and ConAir brands. I was excited to receive some of their new hair products that would make excellent stocking stuffers this holiday season!
Recently, scunci introduced New Evolution™ hair ties, hair bands and clips. They are part of the scunci No Slip Grip line which means that they won’t come out until you are ready to take them out. We got a set of hair ties that my daughter instantly added to her box of hair accessories.She loves the cool “jelly” look and the bright colors. She says they feel great on her hair, and they also look nice. The set of 14 hair ties we received has 2 each in yellow, orange, red, neon green, blue, purple, and black, and we can mix and match them quite well with every outfit of my daughter's.
Personally, I fell in love at first sight with the scunci Upzing™ double combs! They are stylish, elegant, and add a special little something to your hairdo. It takes a little practice to do a good job but after a few tries, I was a pro. The comb is very comfortable and goes well with casual as well as more sophisticated styles. It holds the hair nicely, and it's very versatile - you can make anything from a stylish pony to a glam up-do. And of course, my daughter wanted the combs for herself - but I made her promise to let me borrow it anytime I want. She wore it one day to school, and the Upzing was a hit with all her friends AND her teachers.
ConAir has some wonderful new brushes to help take good care of your hair. The Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Round Brush matches my beautiful red Infiniti You Curl, and does a great job to straighten and style long hair. The Conair Gel Grips Cushion Brush is my favorite brush for everyday styling. The gel handle is very comfy and reminds me of the handle of my trusty Conair hairdryer. In tech speak, tourmaline is a gemstone that naturally releases negative ions, and it is infused into the nylon bristles and ceramic barrel of the brush. The ions tighten the cuticle layer and seal in natural oils, reducing static electricity. The result: hair perfection!
I wear lip balm every day, and Softlips are among my favorites. I've tried many of their flavors, and I have yet to find one I don't like. I was delighted to find out that this year, Softlips are celebrating the winter season with a limited edition Holidays 5-Pack. The lip conditioners come in flavors that inspire a festive mood - Sugar & Spice, Winter Mint, Sugar Cookie, Sugar Plum Berry, and Mint with a Hint of Vanilla. And of course I love them all! The holiday flavors lift my mood and protect my lips with SPF 20, guarding them against the winter chill.
The new Softlips Holidays 5-Pack is a perfect stocking stuffer - they come packaged in a festive blue sachet. At just $9.99, it's an affordable gift idea. Right now, the Holidays 5-Pack is available exclusively in the new Softlips online store. In addition, enjoy free shipping on all orders throughout December 10.
One lucky reader will win a prize pack with ConAir, scunci and Softlips goodies! The winner will receive the same products I reviewed - a Softlips Holidays 5-Pack, two ConAir hair brushes, and a set of scunci hair accessories.
