Inexpensive little items for beauty and fitness types.
JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING | We love all the products we feature on Frugalbits, but these stand out as perfect “just a little something” gifts that will appeal to beauty and fitness types.
For Beauty Buffers: Bioderma Sensibio H2O Make-Up Remover— It’s rare that a skincare product is universally loved, but Bioderma Crealine H2O and its Canadian equivalent Bioderma Sensibio H2O have no detractors. European catwalk models rave about it, as do the artists who do their makeup. Celebrities adore it too. Gwyneth Paltrow, who can buy whatever beauty products she likes, recently proclaimed the French dermatological product to be “the BEST makeup remover” on her blog, GOOP.
Find Bioderma Sensibio H20 at Shoppers Drug Mart, $22 (right now this product comes with bonus cleansing pads)
For Fitness Fanatics: Generic Jump Rope— We’ve reported a few times on the joys of jumping rope. Not only does this convenient, almost cost-free activity improve your mood, energy level, agility, cardio-vascular system and bone density, it also increases your endurance. Depending on what article you read, skipping for 15 minutes at 120 skips per minute has the same caloric expenditure as running six miles in an hour—that’s a serious workout. And no matter how fit a person is to begin with, he or she will move to a higher level by skipping rope.—eds
