Most gift givers have nothing but good intentions in mind when choosing gifts for their loved ones. Unfortunately, and mainly due to their inherent nature, some gifts can come off as unintentionally insulting. Here are 10 beauty items you might want to think twice about — or put on your list for the ultimate passive-aggressive frenemy gift.
What's your take on the bevy of anticellulite creams available? I contend that none of them work, but recently Jessanne reviewed Nivea Good-Bye Cellulite Gel ($10). Did she love it or hate it? Read below to find out.
