This year, I made a point of not making a big deal out of holiday shopping since we’re keeping tight reigns on our budget since I’m expecting baby #2. Personally, I’ve never thought it was worth the trouble since it’s usually hard to find a parking space. Plus, I prefer to shop peacefully without having to battle my way through hordes of overzealous shoppers or stand in line for hours.
I thought I’d keep the gifts simplistic, yet indulgent and pampering this year for the females in our family. I’ve found Walgreens and Walgreens.com to be my favorite places to shop for beauty products. Thankfully, there is one in my vicinity. However, I’ve noticed that Walgreens.com carries many things that the retail location does not.

Pregnancy isn’t always a walk in the park. Therefore, expectant mothers love to feel and look their best.

It features vitamin E, gotu kola extract, and collagen hydrolysates – the only ingredients shown in a published medical study to decrease both the risk and severity of stretch marks. The cocoa butter is nourishing for the skin, while the lavender and sweet almond oil are soothing and calming to the senses.
MyChelle Ultimate Lash and Brow Serum $50.96
I love all of the products that I’ve tried in the past that were by MyChelle. I also love using lash and brow serums once in awhile to make my lashes stand out more. Therefore, I’d love to try out theirs to see what it is like. Unlike most of them on the market, this one is free of harmful ingredients such as parabens, phthalates, ureas, petroleum-based chemicals and artificial colors.
MyChelle Incredible Pumpkin Skin Peel $22.96
I have combination skin, and pumpkin peels are a great way to keep the acne at bay while making my skin utterly smooth and soft. This product would make an excellent gift for just about any teenager or anyone who has problematic skin.
