Struggling to find that perfect gift for the beauty lover on your list? I’ve got your back! I’ve put together a list of products from makeup to skincare, haircare, nail polish and more that will surely inspire you and help you complete your holiday shopping!
The two Holiday Nails Collections I have really loved this year are from Essie and Cle de Peau. The Essie winter collection has six shades that are incredibly gorgeous and perfect for the holiday season!
Cle de Peau launched a set of 3 nail polishes for the holidays and it is STUNNING! The Collection Nuit de Chine packaging is perfect for gifting and the lacquers are even better! The shades are so pretty, they apply evenly and they smell like a dream once dried!
Makeup is always a great choice for any one that wears makeup. Whether they only have a few specific items that they wear everyday or an entire room dedicated to beauty, new makeup is always a welcome gift.
Becca cosmetics released an Apres Ski Glow Collection this season and it is so perfect for gifting! The packaging is silver with white looking frost and it just screams Holiday! The Eye Lights palette pictured above contains 7 shimmer eye shades in the same amazing formula of the cult favorite shimmering skin perfectors. In fact, 5 of the 7 shades are shades that are already in the permanent collection with 2 new unique shades to this palette. Use it on your eyes or as a highlighter, this palette is sure to wow!
The Lise Watier Glam Celebration Holiday collection is simply GORGEOUS! With a limited edition highlight palette and a blush compact encrusted in black rhinestones you can’t go wrong! The collection includes 3 shades of their iconic lipstick formula – Rouge Intense Suprême that is incredibly comfortable, hydrating and nourishing!
I’ve recently become more of a fan of Colour Pop as they hit the shelves at Sephora in Canada! They have an abundance of products at a fraction of the cost of other brands without compromising on quality. This Super Shock Highlight Trio will only set you back 30 bux and it comes packaged in a cute and trendy little box 🙂
Get creative! Anyone who’s into beauty and makeup would love a basket full of different products! You could do a theme gift of colour, brand, things that glitter – the options are endless! Pictured above are a few of my favorite products from this year that would make amazing gifts!
Give the gift of advanced skincare backed by science! SkinCeuticals is used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and medi-spas as it is the best of the best! The H.A intensifier serum is multi-functional corrective serum to help amplify skin’s hyaluronic acid levels providing ultimate hydration! A must for anyone! Pair with the Emollience moisturizer for naturally dewy, healthy and glowing skin! The Antioxidant Lip Repair is like nothing I have tried before! A smooth and creamy lip treatment that soaks into the lips for all day prevention and restoration!
New from Biotherm is the Skin Oxygen Line! Made for all skin types, makes this line perfect for gifting! Detoxifying, clarifying, strengthening and moisturizing, the Skin Oxygen line is de-polluting that allows your skin to breath all day!
A few of my favorites from Kiehl’s would make an awesome gift! The Butterstick is so hydrating and feels amazing on the lips! The creamy eye treatment with avocado has far surpassed my expectations. It is gentle, it doesn’t migrate into the eyes and it is SOOO hydrating! The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a night time oil of pure essential oils and distilled botanicals that visibly restores the appearance of skin by morning. Anyone would be so lucky to receive these products this holiday!These two Dermalogica products are at the top of my list! Dermalogica is a product line to improve overall skin health. Which means being free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances). A couple great choices to gift is the Nightly Lip Treatment and the Stress Positive Eye Lift. Two products that everyone can enjoy!
If you are just looking for one luxurious product to include in a stocking, a gift to your boss, or whatever the reason, these three products are great gifted alone!
The Giorgio Armani Supreme Renewing Mask is a radiance-boosting deep cleansing facial treatment. A silky-smooth balm on application, it transforms into a soothing mask, which induces a moment of calm and encourages a sense of well-being.
AMOREPACIFIC Vintage Single Extract Essence for an ultimate antioxidant boost! This powerhouse anti-aging essence will transform your skin!
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Mask in Oil truly makes your skin glow! Your skin will be softer, plumper and more radiant after just one use!
Holiday Gift Sets
I go crazy every year over holiday gift sets! Not only are they great for trying out products for yourself at a fraction of the cost, but they make incredible gifts!
The fresh Soy Face Cleanser has been a go to for me for years now as it is so gentle on the face and easy on the delicate eyes. Being able to purchase it along with a few other products i’ve been dying to try – especially the Vitamin Nectar face mask, is so awesome.
There is no doubt that the fresh Holiday Sets make the perfect gift! And if you’re not sure what kind of skin care your gift receiver is into, you can opt for a body care set!
The Rodial Brand has recently become very accessible at my local Shoppers Drug Mart and I couldn’t be more thrilled! The brand as a whole is so luxurious and elegant and to my surprise, they have holiday gift sets too!
Oh how I love me some Charlotte Tilbury! The Gift of Goddess Skin is such a wonderful gift to give as it contains 3 of Charlotte’s most iconic products – Charlotte’s Magic Cream, Wonder Glow and Goddess Skin Clay Mask.
Also this year, she has released a Magical Mini Brush Set! It contains 4 essential travel size brushes and it comes with it’s own little carrying case! These two sets are sure fire winners this holiday season!
Hair care is one of those personal products that really is different for everybody. Everyone has different needs, concerns and likely you may not know what those are when choosing to gift someone haircare. However, I have chosen a few products that will work for almost anyone so that your haircare gift wont fall flat. No pun intended 😉
The Living Proof line has some really incredible products. They have a product for everything you could possibly want for your hair. A couple of products that are a sure fire gift hit are the Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo and the Full Dry Volume Blast. The dry shampoo does such an amazing job at leaving your hair oil free, smelling great and incredibly refreshed, while the dry volume blast, does exactly as it states. It blasts volume into your hair for all day gorgeous, voluminous hair!
With the new range that is dry shampoo and everything else that we pile onto our hair, it can really build up over time as regular shampoo can’t always get you the clean you want. Gift the gift of truly clean hair this year with the KMS Deep Cleanse shampoo. Pair it with the KMS Moist repair conditioner and give the gift of the soft, silky and CLEAN hair!
So last year I dyed the bottom 3/4’s of my hair blonde. I have never dyed my hair ever before so this was a major change for me. I knew my hair was going to dry out a bit but I had know idea just how bad! I could barely even brush it! I was horrified! I tried so many different products to try to restore my now totally damaged hair and it was the Bonding Mask from Schwarzkopf that truly brought my hair back to life! Used in conjunction with the Schwarzkopf Moisture Kick Beauty Balm to help add even more moisture and protect it from further damage. If you have a blonde on your list this year, they will absolutely LOVE these products!
I hope I have inspired you and helped you choose that perfect gift for that special someone!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
