While Hanukkah may be ending, and Christmas is only a week away, I figured now is as good a time as ever to feature a few cool things you might not be aware of, perfect for gifting to the beauty lover in your life! If you’re anything like me, you’re a master procrastinator, and these gifts may just be the cure for what ails you when figuring out what to buy for the hard to shop for, or perpetually indecisive!
Clarins 2017 Advent Calendar
Perfect for the skincare lover in your life, this Clarins Advent Calendar is a non-traditional take on a traditional concept, and offers up a whopping 24 mini makeup and skincare products which include:
Buxom Cosmetics Lips Off Leash Kit
If 1 lip gloss is good, then 15 surely must be AMAZING. Available at Sephora, these plumping liquid lipsticks offer up shimmer, shine, and tons of glitz, in two different finishes. The products are formulated with peptides and hyaluronic acid, to help stimulate collagen, build volume, and plump lips up, without the sting or burn other products offer. In this kit, you’ll get 7 lip polishes, and 8 lip creams, in shades ranging from soft pink to full-on vixen red.
Elemis Pro Collagen Duo
Because the winter season can wreak havoc on your skin, this Pro-Collagen Duo has the cure for what ails you. Offering up both a full-sized day cream and a full-sized night cream, this conveniently bundled holiday kit is the perfect option for gifting to that skincare lover in your life (or yourself!). Packed with marine and plant actives, these two creams used together will not only reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but it will also improve skin’s firmness, tone, and hydration levels.
Michael Todd SonicSmooth Sonic Dermaplaning System
Everyone loves spa results, but not every has the time/money to treat what ails their skin at the spa. Available at Ulta, this beauty gadget from Michael Todd Beauty brings Dermaplaning to the home, exfoliating like no other to rid your face of rough, dry, dead skin, and that dreaded “peach fuzz” hair that plagues us all. Used once a week, the SonicSmooth system offers up a smoother, hair-free, and more radiant complexion – instantly. The kit comes with 2 months worth of Safety Edges-Stainless steel blades, which means you can keep the results going, without venturing out all the time for refills.
it Cosmetics! Heavenly Luxe Brush Kit
A good set of brushes never goes out of style, and this particular kit from my beloved it Cosmetics! includes everything you need for a flawless face, in convenient travel sizes. Included in a sleek faux leather traveling case you get: a multi-powder brush, a foundation brush, a concealer brush, an eye crease brush, an all-over shadow brush, and an eyeliner and brow brush. The brushes are made out of cruelty-free fibers, and glide across the skin, effortlessly.
Narciso Rodriguez For Her Fleur Musc
When it comes to gifting, fragrance – though subjective – is always a luxurious option. New in 2017 from one of my favorite fragrance houses, Narciso Rodriguez’s for her Fleur Musc is a scent best described as a warm floral – with notes of pink peppercorns, warm amber, soft patchouli, and musk. It is a pink floral that wears incredibly well, year-round.
