Happy Wednesday Friends!
I used to do a bunch of gift guides when the Holidays hit and probably an unpopular opinion, but I really enjoyed them. They were a ton of work, but I actually found it quite fun. I haven’t done any in about two years and this year, since I’m really feeling the Christmas spirit, I wanted to share a few. Now, I don’t want to clog your feeds with 100 gift guides and I understand that everyone is doing them so I’m only going to share a handful and incorporate mostly products that I own and have tried so you get my honest opinions and stamp of approval!
Today, I wanted to share a gift guide for the beauty lover in your life. Holiday Beauty Gift Sets are some of my fave purchases and you guys know by now I love all things skincare, beauty & Sephora. So I’m sharing a few of my top picks, all of which I’ve used and own!
My favorite purchase so far and such a great way to try the brand. Plus I think it’s such a great deal. For context, full size versions of these products range from $44 to $52. Even the travel size of the Jet Lag Masque is $25 so to get a full size of that product and a travel size of their two other masks, is a great deal in my opinion. I first tried the travel size Jet Lag masque because I didn’t want invest in a full size if I didn’t love it plus the travel size is a pretty decent size, ended up loving it and now I’m so happy I purchased this full set.
Hourglass makes some of the best face products and their Holiday palettes are always so popular they sell out quickly. This quad of blushes is so great and versatile plus the colors are buildable so you can wear it subtly or build it up for a pretty flush of color.
I started using Jo Malone products this year and oh my, they are top quality. There are so many different scents that there is absolutely something for everyone. Red roses is a classic and feminine scent that everyone will love.
Help! I can’t stop buying Jo Malone cologne. I’ve bought 4 mini fragrances so far because I’ve wanted to try the different offerings plus they are made for you to layer the scents, but this one is by far my favorite. Eddie also loves it and always comments on it when I wear this. It’s a fruity and floral scent that is still fresh and light.
I bought a similar set like this last year and loved it. Fresh makes some of the best tinted lip balms. They go on so smooth, add a touch of color and leave your lips feeling so soft. A perfect gift for the cold winter months when everything is dry, especially the lips and for the gal who may not be a fan of lipstick because this feels so light and smooth since it’s just a tinted lip balm.
My favorite scent of 2019! I’m constantly rotating between this and the Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom. This is Chanel’s most popular fragrance and I can definitely see why. Sephora describes this as a “warm floral” scent. I’m finding it hard to put into words what this is like but it’s so amazing. This duo is perfect for travel or to just sample the scent.
I went on a big Tatcha craze this summer and pretty much turned my entire Skincare routine into a Tatcha moment. This bestsellers kit is a great way to try or introduce someone to the brand. I love the face wash, moisturizer and primer. I have yet to try the dewy mist since I have oily skin, but I’ve heard amazing things about it.
My mom gave me a similar kit last Christmas and I was thrilled. A fresh beautyblender is my favorite thing and I use this little sponge every single day. They are a bit pricy at $20 each, but so worth it and such a great deal since you get 4 in this set plus the soap to wash them.
I added this to my skincare routine this year and I love it. It’s perfect for an everyday deep clean, comes in a ton of different colors and so travel friendly.
Am I a beauty guru yet since I have a fancy mirror with bright lights? The perfect gift for any beauty lover since nothing is worse than doing your makeup in bad lighting and going out looking like a clown. This mirror is chargeable so you never have to change batteries, you can connect your devices on bluetooth so you can listen to music better and you can take it apart and travel with it as well.
Two of the best Benefit products and so easy to use. I’ve been using this mascara since college and it’s one of my favorites. Plus this brow product is so great and so easy to use especially if you’re new to filling in your brows. It’s a tinted spoolie brush so all you have to do is brush it on and it provides a tint and tames your brows.
Is there anything that makes you feel more relaxed, more glamorous and more like you have your life together than a good sheet mask? I’ve tried the rose and the pineapple one and love them. I bought the aloe vera one for my Puerto Rico trip to cool down after a day of sun and it’s so refreshing. So I love this set with all of the different options. It’s also a great gift you can split amongst different people!
Thank you so much for reading! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
