If your loved one strategically places a Snapchat filter over the face – he or she’ll love PickFix™ by Carter and Jane.

Formulated with certified organic, cold-pressed Turkish pomegranate seed oil, and award-winning organic Moroccan prickly pear seed oil, this treatment is your new go-to emergency skin fix. Can be used on everyday scrapes, bumps and bruises, compromised cuticles, chapped lips, stubborn teenagers, stressed-out sisters, besties – or yourself!
If you can’t give her the actual stars, give her a 5-star rated product – Nourishing Vitamin C Serum by Tevenere.

Mirror, mirror on the vanity – you are so pretty. It’s a lame rhyme, but the Vera Premium Lighted Vanity Mirror is definitely not! With a gorgeous sleek finish and large oval mirror, Vera makes every beauty session feel like a Vogue photoshoot moment, even if you’re just applying moisturizer. In addition to a heavy, non-slip base and a 45-degree tilt, she has three dimmable LED light settings, a 30-min auto-shutoff and 3 color choices. Although it comes with an alternative USB power cable, it’s actually cordless with eco-friendly rechargeable power so you don’t need to spend royally. The Good Housekeeping crowned her the Best Cordless Makeup Mirror, and we believe it’s fit for your princess!
