Everyone has someone on their Christmas list who loves beauty gifts. Maybe that someone is you. (In case you didn’t know, I’m very pro-self-gifting.) Today I’m here with two ideas for your beauty-loving bestie.
There is no hair-removal method that I haven’t tried. Shaving? Tried it. Waxing? Tried it. Threading? Tried it. Seriously…try to stump me. It’s impossible. I’ve tried them all. The problem with most methods? The hair comes back, so it’s an endless cycle. And I do mean endless. Unless you go for a permanent solution, that is. And permanent hair removal is totally possible. Enter the Flash&Go. It’s safe, easy and effective. It’s a one time investment, rather than buying razors or waxing appointments over and over again. Already had salon light-based treatments? The Flash&Go is a less expensive alternative for doing touch ups at home. It’s also easy to use. Plug it in. Hit the power button. Adjust the strength settings. Place the light cartridge on your skin. Pull the trigger. Repeat as you move the Flash&Go over the area you’re treating. One thing to note-Home Pulsed Light (HPL) Technology works best on skin that is not naturally dark or actively tanned. The built-in skin sensor will only allow the Flash&Go to work on skin that is light enough to treat. (Lucky for a ridiculously pale, dark-haired girl like me. I’m an ideal candidate!) Start by using the Flash&Go every two weeks for the first two months, then reduce treatments to monthly or as needed. In about three months you should see noticeable results!
I know what you’re thinking-let’s talk pain. I’ve had a variety of in-salon and at-home hair removal treatments. I will say that I’m a pretty tough chick when it comes to the whole beauty/pain thing. Laser and IPL can really hurt, although it’s very much a “there and gone” pain. The Flash&Go? I barely felt it. Shaving before helps-I’ve found that the longer your hair, the more likely you are to feel it. Don’t forget-you need to stick to shaving when using the Flash&Go. Waxing and tweezing are big no-nos if you want the best results.
Convinced yet that you need this in your life? Just visit Bed Bath and Beyond or Kohl’s, then go to keepongifting.com to receive a $25 gift card and be entered to win a trip to Aruba! You can redeem that gift card up to three times. That’s a total of $75 to spend at Bed Bath and Beyond or Kohl’s. Buy one for yourself. Buy one for a friend. Buy whatever you want at Kohl’s or Bed Bath and Beyond with those gift cards. It’s win-win!
So now that we have your legs hair-free…let’s talk salt scrubs. I personally believe that after you’ve made your own sugar or salt scrub, you’ll see no reason to buy any in store. It’s also the best way to keep those now hair-free legs super smooth. Not to mention it’s so much cheaper to make your own…and you can make it exactly to your personal taste!
To get a holiday-friendly striped look, add a few drops of food coloring to half of your salt scrub. Then layer in alternating colors until your jar is full. It’s a great DIY gift to go with that Flash&Go. Don’t forget to visit the Keep On Gifting site and pick up your Flash&Go at Bed Bath and Beyond or Kohl’s!
