It’s gift giving season! Everyone has a beauty product loving person in their life. In my life, it’s me, and I hope I surprise myself with the following items for the holidays. But, I digress…Here is a great beauty gift guide listed by price. Need just a couple extra little items to throw into stocking? Or, do you have a beauty product junkie friend/sister/brother/partner that is always looking for what is fresh and on trend? This list has a little bit of everything!
This is a cult favorite product with lots of bang for your buck. Put a little on your lips, then rub the leftovers on dry cuticles, elbows, wherever you need a little extra moisture. The smell is light, so don’t worry about feeling like someone is holding a rose under your nose all day – which is not ok.
This is a “can’t live without it” product for me. I love this stuff. I use it in my hair, on my body, and even put a little on my face when I’m feeling extra dry. Everywhere it goes it leaves silkiness behind. It also has a unique scent that I love love love.
Earring backs, nail polish remover pad, a tampon, stain remover, nail file, deodorant wipe, lip balm, etc. 17 pieces in all. Why didn’t I think of this? Genius.
How cute is this? Throw this in a stocking for a 5 year old or a 95 year old – and everything in between.
All of Smashbox’s greatest hits in “try me” sizes. This is a great way to try out the line and see some of their best stuff in one package. This kit is straight up awesome.
I’m a sucker for cute holiday packaging. This is no exception. A great set of glosses for a great price. Can’t beat it with a stick. Sorry, I’m Southern.
If you’re looking for a new scent but you’re fickle like me and change your mind a lot, check out these mini rollers. They smell amazing and don’t break the bank.
Gwen Stefani is a makeup goddess. This gorgeous palette is her design. I mean, stop it. If you love makeup or know someone who does, trust me – they want this!
If your skin is feeling a little parched this winter season, I beg of you, purchase this set. I use this in my facial room on clients with dry/dehydrated complexions. This will become your holy grail product! INTENSELY hydrating and smells like a day at the beach. Win/win.
Skin a little under the weather from the late night Christmas parties, or the excessive holiday treats, or because your skin has forgotten what sunshine looks like since you began hibernating in your living room as the temperatures dropped? This mask is the miracle you’ve been looking for. It detoxifies, sucks all the junk out of your skin and exfoliates too. You’ll be left with glowing fresh skin. Gift this to your girlfriends/boyfriends and they will love you forever. Also, the price for this little set is unbeatable!
An awesome all inclusive contour palette. Fill in and shape your brows, show off those cheekbones, define your eyes, it’s all in this kit.
Bite Lip Set $55
I’ll admit it. I’m ready to marry Bite Cosmetics. I’m telling you that you need to be on my team with this. An 8 piece lip set that includes full sizes and minis too. So so good.
Not to forget the fellas we love so much, here are some ideas for them, too!
If you need a little something for the man in your world, this kit is awesome. It has a little bit of everything: a breath mint for mistletoe moments, dental floss, band aids, extra buttons, and anything else your busy guy might need, all neatly packaged in a tiny mustachioed metal tin.
Wisdom Beard Oil $20
We all have a bearded man in our lives right now. I have been on the hunt for a great beard product that does all the umm…beardy stuff that my husband is looking for. This one meets his qualifications. Moisturizes the beard, the skin underneath, and makes the hair look smooth and umm..beardy.
Lots and lots of tiny granules that exfoliate skin leaving it smooth and soft. Since the granules are perfect spheres, it won’t damage your skin, it just helps remove the stuff you don’t want.
Cult product for men and women. Gender neutral flavors and it hydrates the lips with zero color deposit. Good stuff.
This comes in a neat wooden bowl that looks good on a bathroom counter. This is for the metrosexual in your world, or for the man that likes the idea of stepping into a barber shop for a fresh shave.
If you need something last minute that can keep up with the big dogs, these products are available at your local Walmart and most drugstores!
This oil has been a favorite of mine for years and years and you can get it just about anywhere! Sam’s even has a bottle that is about the size of a toddler. Pat yourself dry while still in the shower then put this all over your body. The smell is classic and fresh and your skin will feel smooth and hydrated. I even use this on my kiddos instead of baby oil post bath time.
Burts Bees Chapstick $9.99 for a package of 4
This is a classic product that everyone loves. Side note: if you haven’t seen the documentary about the real Burt, it’s super interesting.
Take off your makeup and moisturize at the same time. These simple, 99% natural wipes are paraben and cruelty free (as is the entire line). If you haven’t checked out this line, I suggest you get on it! There are so many fantastic products and you can pick it up at your local Walmart. Affordable, effective, and convenient. I’m no math whiz but that sounds like 3 thumbs up.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and spend every moment in the company of those you love! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
