Holiday Gift Guide

Pour le Monde® or For the World, is a new altruistic all natural fragrance company that donates a minimum of 5% from each bottle sold. It’s the gift that keeps on giving and what better way to celebrate the spirit of the season? 

Each eau de parfum in the Pour le Monde® collection benefits a coordinating charity:

-Envision: for the National MS Society whose mission is to envision a world free of MS.
-Together: benefiting the Cancer Support Community so no one faces cancer alone®.
-Empower: supporting Guiding Eyes for the Blind which provides dogs that empower the visually impaired and children with autism.
These fragrances can be a fun gift for an expecting mommy to be because they're 100% natural and chemical free, making them totally safe to use.  They're also ideal for the eco friendly beauties on your list this year.  Pour le Monde® is certified by The Natural Products Association, Peta, FSC, Leaping Bunny and Vegan Certification
1.7 fl. oz. $95.00
At the beautypress Holiday Spotlight event, I sampled each scent and fell partial to Empower
Top notes: Crisp lemon, Persian lime, Italian bergamont, Brazilian orange, Florida grapefruit
Middle: Spearmint, cassis, basil, lemongrass, orange flower
Base: Indonesian patchouli, cedar wood, benzoin
Though I usually prefer my fruity florals, Empower is a an edgier choice for the season.  The crisp lemon scent is very apparent, as well as it the orange elements.  I liked this fragrance because while its soft and pleasant, its citrusy blend is sharp and very refreshing.  Its presence is light but still evident. Not overpowering. 
The line's other fragrances include:
1.7 fl. oz. $95.00
Top notes: Italian bergamot, Brazilian orange, Persian lime, Floridian grapefruit, pink peppercorn
Middle: Herbaceous notes of French lavender, Palma rosa and Egyptian geranium rose
Base: Indonesian patchouli, blend of woods, Madagascar vanilla
1.7 fl. oz. $95.00
Top notes: Argentina lemon, Italian bergamot
Middle: Jasmine, violet freesia, lilac- all natural isolates
Base: Blend of woods, Madagascar vanilla, balsa, Indonesian patchouli
Another brand to consider for your beauty addict friends is one of my favorites: Brocato.  I've reviewed several of their hair products in the past, including the Vibrastrait Oscillating Iron  and the Supersilk Pure Indulgence Leave- In Treatment and have had impressive results with both. 
Sparkle & Shimmer Spray
1 oz. $7.00
I'm super excited for their recent holiday launch: The Sparkle & Shimmer Sprays
 Shine on this season with these festive, sparkling sprays of pearlescent flecks. Just spritz on after styling to add a sexy glow while under the twinkling lights!
 They're safe on skin and can even be used on clothes to add a subtle glitz and glam to your look.  Perfect for a night out at your next holiday loft party, special event or give one as a surprise stocking stuffer!
