My last Grandma Ossie taught me a few things about beauty items. One of the biggest things: Do not buy cheap perfume. Sadly, I learned this because she bought cheap perfume at drugstores and, so help me this is true, swap meets.
I also learned for many products you need quality ingredients. Cheap, poor ingredients won’t deliver on promises and can cause irritation or even rashes. Yuck.

The holidays can be so stressful. I always make a point to buy an early gift for myself, something luxurious usually a fantastic soap or a great perfume. Picking out a small luxury as a gift to you from you, is a way to take care of yourself! Buying a perfume, soaking salts or some other decadent item from Glow for a Cause , you can justify your purchase in that you are contributing to a charity and presenting with a slightly less stressed you to the word.
