Whoever said "tis better to give than to receive" obviously never followed the Cleveland Beauty Examiner holiday gift guide, because around these parts, everybody knows that the best gifts are the ones that you want to keep for yourself. In other words: buy two of everything.
Disclaimer: I am legally required to inform you that I did receive promotional samples for this article. However, you should know how this works: I reach out to the brands, ask for the products that interest me, and then try them. If I like them, I tell you about them. If I don't, I contact the brand and let them know that I'm not a fan, and then give them the option of having me post a negative review, or not review at all. This is how I roll--so you can rest assured that I am keeping it real for you. :)
