HOUSTON (KIAH) – ChicExecs’ lifestyle expert, Kiley Thomas, joins Houston Happens host Maggie Flecknoe, with six gift ideas for the beauty lover in your life this holiday season. Here’s a peek at the brands featured in the segment.

Hereward Farms

Hereward Farms is a small family-owned lavender farm in Ontario in the Hamlet of Hereward. The family handcrafts spa-quality infused lavender oil products for all-natural skincare. Everything is planted, grown, and produced on the farm. These self-care items are intentionally made to improve your skin and its texture. The family has been farming in this area for over five generations. In 2021, they have planted over 4,000 lavender plants to make their highly popular spa-quality lavender products. 

(Re)SET Skincare

Re(SET) Skincare brings consumers the most straightforward, most efficient, targeted formulation with the best ingredients at the optimal concentration to produce visible transformative results in 28 days.

She is creating more potent concentrations in every product by freeze-drying, which is a better investment for beauty enthusiasts. It means fewer items are needed to do the job and fewer steps in your routine, giving you more time to enjoy the things you love most.
