A Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers Who LOVE Food

Beauty Foodie — is that even a thing? It is now! I’m starting the hashtag on Instagram. So, who is a Beauty Foodie? A Beauty Foodie is someone who loves beauty products that smell like food, food that’s almost too beautiful to eat and food that works from the inside out to make them beautiful.  This makes perfect sense to me and so I’m diving face first into a list of products that any Beauty Foodie would love to show up in their kitchen or vanity this holiday season.

Food

Topperfino

Since being introduced to Topperfino my coffee game has gotten mad strong — it’s a yummy layer of chocolate artfully designed to elevate your coffee experience in a matter of seconds.  When else could you have sequin in your coffee? This is perfect for the coffee lover who also loves chocolate, beauty and who may also love to stunt on Instagram. Check, check and check! (Starting at $10 at Topperfino.com)

Breville BJE510XL Juice Fountain

breville-bje510xl-juice-fountain - Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers Who LOVE Food

I’m all about fresh healthy juices but those 8 ounce bottles can run you a pretty penny. Pair that with a daily coffee habit and cocktails and you might be spending half your monthly paycheck on liquids. We get superior nutrients from fresh juices and that in turn can lead to healthier looking skin, hair and nails, so Breville BJE510XL Juice Fountain, the number on rated juicer on Amazon, is a no brainer for the health conscious beauty girl on your holiday gift list. (On Sale: $125.95 on Amazon)

Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings
