As a mom, me-time is hard to come by. Sometimes, it feels like so much of my personal time has been given to my children, which I gladly give them, but my beauty routine has taken the biggest hit! I don’t have time to schedule wax appointments, but with Venus you can take those few spare minutes and still keep your silky smooth skin. The Venus Silk-Expert powered by Braun is an Intense Pulsed Light treatment system that ‘reads’ your skin to deliver just the right amount of light, keeping skin safe and beautifully smooth. As you continue to use it your hair becomes weaker, finer, lighter and grows slower. You’ll see significant reduction in hair growth after just 4-12 weekly treatments. I was so nervous to try the Silk Expert. I thought it would hurt, but it doesn’t! Just warm sensation, sometimes a small sting, and 8-10 minutes to less hair and smoother skin. Just what every woman needs!
Exercise & Activewear
Make her Christmas complete with one of the best yoga mats around from DatMat. These mats are more than just a comfortable place to perform a Sun Salutation, they are premium mats that have a non-slip ¼” thickness with the most unique designs! With 8 different styles, anyone would love to stretch out on the comfy Pizza Mat, or Fat Cat Yoga Mat, or my favorite Donut Yoga Mat. Each mat measures 68”x24” with rounded edges and has an environmentally-friendly high-density foam inside for the cushiest comfort. Your yoga lover will not want to leave this DatMat!
Lifestraw has the perfect gift for the active woman in your life.

Make her Christmas amazing with a great water bottle or water filtration device from LifeStraw.
