Which Perfume Should You Gift This Year?

Cold weather and the holidays evoke different emotions, memories and feelings in each of us. While some people might love the snow and winter sports, others can't wait for a winter getaway to soak up the sunshine and drink a tropical, umbrella-clad drink.

9 Unnecessary Skin Care Products

We live in the infomercial era.

And worldwide, there are probably over 10,000 skin care companies trying to convince us that we need a different cream for each body part -- from our pinky toes to our upper lip.
