7 Coveted Holiday Gifts Certain To Wow Beauty Lovers On Your List
We’ve rounded up knock-out gift ideas from skincare and makeup brands around the globe guaranteed to impress the beauty-obsessed.
With postal service and delivery delays expected to worsen this holiday season, getting a jump on your shopping is a necessity. And as beauty analysts have adeptly pointed out, skincare has begun topping most people’s priority lists. Many people have minimized their makeup routines thanks to WFH (Work From Home) and mask-wearing protocols, so picking out a present for your bestie might look very different this season.
Since self-care and at-home spa-style treatments continue to trend, we compiled a shortlist of skincare sets and makeup tool offerings that will satisfy your newly skin-savvy loved ones this season.
French Dermatological Skincare For Your At-Work Gift Exchange
Finding a $10 gift for an officemate sounds impossible, especially if he or she has sensitive or dehydrated skin. BIODERMA’s targeted skincare lines offer solutions for all types of skin at reasonable price points. Their Sensibio Discovery Kit includes generously sized “try me” versions of the brand’s bestselling micellar water as well as a lightweight cream and eye gel. And the Hydrabio Discovery Kit focuses on increasing moisture whether while cleansing with the micellar water or amplifying hydration with a serum or gel-cream. At $9.90 each, these trios are a steal.
Skincare For The Man In Your Life
Data shows that men are now much more likely to be interested in skincare than in years past, including using anti-aging products. Laneige’s Homme Blue Energy Duo pairs a gel-style toner with a lightweight emulsion (aka lotion). Not only does the set come attractively packaged in ocean blue; it also contains 78.5 percent deep seawater and revitalizing spirulina – a protein- and carotenoid-rich extract known for regenerating tissue and healing wounds. The set also includes travel-sized versions, making it easy for your guy to carry his goodies on the go.
Magnetic Tools For The Makeup Maven
Could your bestie use a new set of makeup brushes? How about a better way to store them? Upgrade that battle station with Missha’s Standing Magnetic Brush Set, which includes eyeshadow, eyeliner, foundation, cheek, and powder brushes with built-in magnets. The sleek standup holder makes each brush easy to find and keeps the brush heads pristine. The upper magnetic feature also makes drying freshly washed brushes upside down a breeze and prevents water intrusion in the ferrule, which can loosen the glue holding the bristles in place.
For The J-Beauty Fanatic
Gathering gifts from abroad might be out of the question this year, but grabbing a J-beauty set complete with its cult-favorite lotion is easy now that the Sekkisei Skincare Lovers Set has arrived. Sekkisei’s name as well as its products draw inspiration from the snow’s brightness, and their gentle five-piece set contains both Japanese and Chinese herbal extracts that brighten and hydrate the skin. The set features the Treatment Cleansing Oil, Lotion (aka hydrating toner), Emulsion, Lotion Mist, and a Radiance Boosting Mask.
For The Serious Spa Enthusiast or Cruelty-Free Beauty Lover
If your holiday shopping list includes a friend or family member with a passion for peels and a fondness for facials, Epicuren’s Six Step System is a slam dunk. This kit takes the guesswork out of creating a routine and includes everything from a cleanser and exfoliator to Epicuren’s quintessential, trademarked quad of Metadermabolic Enzyme products, which are designed to help the skin rejuvenate thanks to potent fruit and protein enzymes and dermatology-grade formulations.
For Everyone On Your List
And since your gift recipient will obviously need a headband to keep his or her hair back while using your lovely present, why not toss in the K-beauty favorite Etude House kitty cat version, too?
Happy Holidays from everyone at Beautytap!
