Beauty Gift Guide ~ Drugstore Edition!

Beauty Gift Guide Drugstore

Happy Holidays Everyone! I thought this year I’d do something a little bit different, and showcase all of the wonderful beauty products that you can easily find at your local drug store!  Products that are budget friendly, stocking stuffer approved, and best of all, they are all top rated beauty finds in my books! So lets get started!

Drugstore Makeup Gift 2017

Loreal Lash Paradise set a standard this year in the world of mascara! It provides volume, length and out preforms high end mascaras making it the #1 choice for mascara this holiday! Also by Loreal, is the Infallible Galaxy Stick. With three fun, multidimensional shades to choose from, this fun highlighting stick is for those trend setters on your list!

The NYX 3 steps to sculpt makes a great gift as it covers all the basis in one mid-size compact! Pair it with a fun eyeshadow palette like the Pixi It’s Eye Time palette and your set!

For those on a stricter budget, Hard Candy has a ton of holiday gifts this year! Pictured above is a lip tin, with 5 different shades and formulas for less than $5!

Holiday Makeup Brushes Gift Sets 2017

Since we’re talking about makeup, I found a couple of Makeup Brush sets that are perfect for gifting! The Real Techniques has launched a limited edition color correcting set that allows you to easily identify which brush to use for each color! I totally love this idea! And as an extra bonus, it comes with 4 mini makeup sponges in the same colors for the ultimate blended look! Check out my review on Real Techniques!

ECO Tools also has a color correcting set that is more focused on the different curves of the areas you’d most likely be correcting! Which ever set you choose, you’ll be on your way to a flawless face in know time!

Stocking stuffers for her 2017

Pictured above is a few of my must have products that I wouldn’t go without! All of which would make exceptional stocking stuffers!

If you haven’t tried Le Petit Marseillais Body Wash then you are missing out! It is relatively new to drugstores in Canada and WOW do they smell incredible! They have many different scents to choose from, but they are all equally hydrating and luxurious felling.

For those with more sensitive skin, Yardley London has an fabulous Oatmeal and Almond bar of soap to help soothe dry skin, perfect for this time of year!

Of course Burts Bees always kills the holiday game with so many incredible gift sets that really allow you to get the most bang for your buck! You can never go wrong with their original Beeswax lip balm, it is amazing!

I had to add a little glitter in the mix because, while most of us don’t use glitter on the daily, it is wonderful to have in any women’s makeup collections for those extra special looks! The NYX Glitter and glitter primer is the best on the market in its price range!

If you haven’t heard of the cult favorite EOS Lip balms, then it is possible you’ve been living under a rock for far too long! They glide on so smooth, leaving your lips feeling like pure silk! With an abundance of holiday sets to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the perfect gift for anyone on your list!


So…? Fragrances are a great alternative to expensive perfumes. They have a ton of different scents from musks, to florals, fruits and warm vanillas. Available in perfume, body mists and body fragrances there is surely something for everyone on your holiday list!

The I Love… Collection is a great choice at the drugstore! The sell body washes, lotions, creams, bubble bath etc. With many products to choose from, that all smell incredible, and this holiday, they have them boxed up in holiday packaging and included is a free body Puff!

Bioderma Micellar Water is known as the best! Every one should have this on their bathroom counter as it not only removes makeup, but dirt, oil and impurities like nothing else! Pair it with the Bioderma Mild Cleansing Foam and you’ve got yourself a gift that anyone would love! See my post on Why Everyone Should Be Using Bioderma Micellar water.

Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh peaches and Mango! A Combo from Calgon will run you less than 20 bucks and you’ll be sure to please your secret Santa! Again, Calgon has a multitude of scents to choose from, Peach being my personal fav. The Body cream hydrate the skin so well and leaves behind a subtle delicious scent. The fragrance mists allows you to freshen up through out day whenever you need it most! I don’t leave the house without one of these in travel size in my bag!

Lip Smackers Holiday Collections 2017.jpg

It’s officially become a holiday tradition for me to gift my nieces with Lip Smackers gift sets. They absolutely LOVE them, for their fun, unique scents, and their colorful packaging are every girls dream! This year, Lip Smackers has released a bunch of adorable hand lotions in holiday scents, and I know they will go crazy over them!


To say I have been a HUGE fan of Dr Teals for years is likely an understatement. I have extremely sensitive skin so I have to be very careful what I throw into my baths. Recently Dr Teals has launched a new line – Pink Himalayan Salt, and omg it’s to die for! It really helps to relax my muscles, soften my skin and it gently emits the most wonderful aroma into the bathroom as it mixes with the warm water. If you have a bath lover on your list, they will LOVE this!

Last but definitely not least is this gift pack filled with 5 different face masks from 7th Heaven! The ultimate stocking stuffer that anyone will enjoy!

  1. Everything looks so tempting!! I really want to try the Dr. Teal’s pink Himalayan salt bath. I have a salt lamp as well. 🙂


  2. Love the real techniques brushes, the bioderma products, and other products from ELF and NYX. I was actually wondering if you or anyone else has tried the Lash Paradise Mascara? Is it as good as the Two Faced ‘Better than Sex Mascara? I’ve been looking for it in the waterproof formula and it’s hard to find.
