What are the hottest gift items this season? What will make your friends look, feel and even smell glamorous this season? We talked to Chenese Bean, contributor for Cincy Chic, makeup artist and owner of Chenese Bean Makeup Artistry, for a few of her favorites this season. “The holidays bring out the celebratory side in all of us to share and live life,” says Bean. “So why not express it in beauty and all things made to make us feel good?”


These choices will make you feel good from head to toe.

A limited-edition collection that includes a full-sized Fresh’s famous Sugar Scrub, a travel size Fresh Sugar Hand Treatment and a full-sized Sugar Lip Treatment.
