Just in case you’ve been living under a rock and aren’t aware, Christmas is in 5 days. Odds are there is at least one person you need to get a gift for and I know there are some procrastinators out there! If you’re planning on ordering online you better get to gettin’! You’re gonna have to pay the consequence for your last minute-ness and upgrade to that express shipping!
Here are a few fun ideas:
1. Glow in the dark, waterproof playing cards
Fun for camping! Grab them on Amazon here.
2. Fred Big Blue Whale Strainer
I have one of these and it just makes me so happy every time I use it 🙂
3. The Oregon Trail card game
I cannot be the only one who spent hours trying to complete the trail on my Windows 95 PC. This definitely went on my wish list this year hahaha
Find it at Target!
4. Crazy ice cube molds
I’m not entirely sure what makes these so cool, but fun ice cubes are a hit at my house!
Available at Target
5. A fun little wallet!
They’re shimmery, they’re $5, and they’re at Target.
6. A candle.
Because I’m pretty sure 97.5% of the people on the planet like them. Look for a soy one – they burn without black soot!
7. A Book That Takes its Time
This is 1/3 book, 1/3 journal, 1/3 scrapbook.
Available at Target, Amazon, Barnes & Noble
8. A sweet knife
Because name an Alaskan man who doesn’t like knives…

10. A Revive Gift Certificate!
Well duh! We have services for everyone and our 12 Days of Christmas sale is still going on! Today is 20% off all massages
Here comes another “you asked for it, you got it!” addition to Revive! We have added tanning to our list of services and Kelsie has set up the CUTEST tanning room I’ve ever seen! It is beautiful and peaceful and we all just want to hang out in there.
As an esthetician, Kelsie is generally anti-tanning, but is also realistic and realizes that people are going to do it no matter what she recommends! You can’t really hide it when you lie down to get your lashes done smelling like you just tanned 😛 You know what I’m talking about! She’s onto you! So we may as well be a one stop shop and try to educate our clients on the “best practices” of tanning.
We have a variety of lotion bottles and samples here, as well as eye protection, which is HUGELY IMPORTANT!!! You know how you’re not supposed to stand outside and stare at the sun because it’ll damage your eyes? Think about what happens when the “sun” is inches from your face and you’re relying on your super thin eyelids to protect you…sound like a good plan? It’s definitely not, so wear your goggles!! We have disposable eyewear also if that’s more your style.
Here are our current prices – they’re 15% off through today, December 6th as part of our 12 Days of Christmas special.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
We hope you all have a wonderful day relaxing and eating with your families and/or friends. We are truly thankful for each and every one of our clients and we wouldn’t be here without you!
We will all be taking tomorrow off to enjoy our turkey day, but will be back in action on Friday and Saturday to bring you some awesome Black Friday & Small Business Saturday deals! You are welcome to call or come in to purchase and gift certificates are available for all the packages.
Have a fantastic holiday!
A few weeks ago we talked about some vitamins and their contribution to both the inside and the outside of our bodies. Vitamin C is a biggie and we have two serums here that would be a perfect addition to your skin care routine.
PCA C&E Strength Max
This serum is usable by all skin types and people who are looking to correct visible signs of aging and/or discoloration. From PCA: “This antioxidant formulation combines maximum strength pure vitamin C and pure vitamin E to strengthen skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”
Le Mieux Vita-C Serum
Ingredient quality is incredibly important when it comes to skin care. Many vitamin C products contain an unstable form of the vitamin and have a short shelf life and lower efficacy. Le Mieux says: “This concentrated serum is enriched with 2 of the most stable forms of vitamin C (MAP and AAP), vitamin E, and B vitamins to restore a healthy, youthful glow, balance uneven tone, and soften roughness.”
We carry PCA and Le Mieux here at Revive because we believe quality is so important. These are brands with proven track records of amazing results. Feel free to chat with us about which of these serums would be best for you!
So you procrastinated did you? Me too.
In case you missed all of the memos, tomorrow is Halloween. I’m not really sure how that happened because I feel like the 4th of July was a couple weeks ago, but clearly I am sadly mistaken!
Don’t fret though! The trusty internet has provided me with some cheap and easy costume ideas – check them out:
Contour Tutorial –
This one definitely made me laugh – just apply your make up like you’re doing some serious highlighting and contouring, but don’t blend it! You will look ridiculous, but hey beggars can’t be choosers
Party Animal –
Grab an animal face mask of your choosing, a party hat and maybe one of those fun little things you blow into with the streamers and you’re all set!
Dancing Girl Emoji –
What has the world come to when an emoji counts as a costume? I don’t know, but it definitely meets the cheap and easy criteria. It wasn’t the only emoji suggestion I found either! Black tee shirt, black shorts, black socks, and top it all off with some black bunny ears
Bubble Bath –
Blow up some white balloons and pin them to a white tee shirt to make the bubbles, slap on a shower cap and you’re good to go!
Salt & Pepper –
Here’s an easy couple idea – one of you puts on a white shirt with a big “S” on it and the other wears a gray shirt with a “P”. No one can possibly screw that one up.
Side note: I saw soap and a loofah as a suggestion for a “last minute” couple’s costume. Don’t do it. Nothing about that is do able at the last minute and in my experience, you will show up to your Halloween party 2+ hours late because loofahing did not go as smoothly as you hoped…
Now get busy! I’d love to see your costumes! Post a pic here or on our Facebook 🙂
