This gift guide is dedicated to beauty.  Beauty gifts are always a fabulous gift option since they offer up many possibilities with many categories from skincare to makeup to high tech gadgets and prices that range from the affordable to the luxe. As with all my other gift guides, I'm including a few picks which happen to be personal favorites as well as a few that might be on my wish list as well.

1. Nano Ionic Hot Vaporizing Face Steamer
This 4-in-1 facial steamer makes it easy to steam your pores for an at home facial and it can also be used as a humidifier and a makeup mirror.

2. Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum
This botanically based multi-correctional treatment is pure skincare luxury made with top quality and one of my favorite skincare products that I tried this year.

3. Refa S Carat
This facial roller with two platinum multi-angular rollers and a soothing microcurrent generated by a solar panel replicates the gentle point kneading action of an esthetician’s fingers to help tighten and tone the appearance of skin that tends to slacken around the eyes, lips, and forehead. When I use mine consistently, my face is firmer and more contoured and it diminishes the appearance of undereye circles and puffiness as well.

4. Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks
These bestselling eye masks enriched with hyaluronic acid, aloe leaf extract and lavender oil and shea butter are a treat for the eyes that work to help brighten, hydrate, and reduce the appearance of dark circles.

5. La Mer Regenerating Mini Miracles Set
La Mer for under $100 can be had with this limited edition set that features travel sizes of The Regenerating Serum and Crème de la Mer inside a pretty travel case.

6. OSKIA The Rejuvenating Edit Skin Care Set
This set which includes a few of my OSKIA favorites is a terrific value. It comes with  a full-size Super 16 Advanced Nutri-Active Collagen Serum which I recently reviewed, a travel-size Renaissance Cleansing Gel and travel-size Renaissance 360 Anti-Aging & Brightening Super Cream.

7. Byredo Gypsy Water Hand Cream
Fancy hand cream always makes a nice gift. I love this one which comes in a chic package elevates the experience. It is a concentrated cream which absorbs quickly with lasting moisture and it has the most amazing fragrance of  bergamot, lemon, pepper and juniper berries.

8. Femmue Gypsy Rose Calming Mask
This naturally formulated mask made with kaolin clay, squalane, rose and green tea oils and french rose petal extracts works to remove impurities from pores while keeping skin nourished and hydrated leaving it balanced and clearer. I wouldn't normally use the word lovely to describe a clay mask but I would for this one which works as claimed. It's a must for me and I will post a full review soon.

9. Vitabrid Dual Masks: Age-Defying & Firming
I'm a regular user of sheet masks and some definitely work better than others. This mask which provides a stabilized form of activated vitamin C that penetrates deeper into the skin allowing it to act continuously for more than 12 hours along with an evolved peptide delivery platform that boosts collagen synthesis and regeneration efficiency always leaves my skin with both an instant and long lasting boost of radiance and clarity as well a firm and refreshed feeling.

10. COMPARTES Holiday 4-Pack Beauty Chocolate Bars
This set of premium, organic, non-GMO, non-dairy, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free chocolate bars is perfect for the beauty lover with a sweet tooth. This gift set includes four bars of decadent organic dark chocolate in flavors Beauty, Pure, Superfood and Botox. If you're going to indulge make it the good stuff. COMPARTES chocolate is a class above.

11. Patrick Ta Major Glow On The Go
This limited-edition body oil and lip shine duo is everything one needs for a major glow while on the go.

12. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette
This palette features an exclusive quartet of universally flattering hybrid blushes that combine the customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder and Strobe Powder with beautiful color.

13. Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Serum Stick
This moisture boosting serum based lip color with a hydrating and anti-aging camellia and safflower oil complex feels really nourishing and comfortable on the lips while adding a sheer wash of color. It was made popular because Song Hye Kyo wore it in Encounter. I own three of these and I'm not much of a lipstick person so that tells you how good it is.

14. Decorté Styling Liquid Eyeliner
This versatile liner with precision tip allows you to create sleek, precise lines or bold, retro-inspired cat eyes with high impact long lasting color. This eyeliner is the absolute best and I have not used anything else since I discovered it last year. Points for being refillable as well.

15. Tenoverten Nail Polish
I'm a big fan of this affordable polish brand whose 5 free polish promotes the long term health of nails without sacrificing on quality or color selection. Their polish has great pigmentation with long lasting wear and a nice shine.

16. FaceTory Portable Beauty Fridge with Heat and Cool Capacity
Beauty fridges are a thing now and I'm surprised it took so long since refrigerating your cosmetics and skin care products can greatly extend their life by preventing product breakdown. Many makeup products advise that you store them in a cool, dry place so that they last longer. I've kept my unopened skincare and makeup on the bottom shelf of my refrigerator door for years and it makes a difference. A dedicated beauty fridge makes sense if one doesn't have room in their refrigerator.

17. Eva NYC Mini Healthy Heat Thermal Straightening Brush
This straightening brush is so useful. It’s the perfect styling tool for keeping my hair sleek and polished with virtually no effort. And my hair feels healthier with this instead of a flat iron. It's also perfect for traveling and touch ups.

18. Rahua Customizable Daily Hair Kit
Rahua has created the perfect holiday hair care gift that can be customized to everyone's specific hair type and goals. Rahua's clean, plant based formulations are made with pure, organic ingredients and are vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free. I love their Omega 9 Hair Mask.

19. Conair Unbound Cordless Auto Curler
This innovative cordless styling tool with 400° high heat, 3 settings and 4 timer settings gives you the freedom to create luxurious curls and waves at home or on the go.

20. Kristin Ess Hair Styling Set
This pretty set includes a detangling brush and sectioning clips looks much more expensive than it actually is.

I want them all, chingu!!! Bwahaha!...But seriously, this is such a great list. I wouldn't mind getting that La Mer set as I've been dying to try that brand for forever, and that face steamer looks pretty rad. Also love anything from Hourglass. Even though I have the blush palette with the three shades, this one looks even better:D

Amazing suggestions as always, Rowena! I just bought Kristin Ess shampoo, conditioner and cleansing conditioner so fingers crossed I will love them. I have my eyes on the styling set too!

The Sulwhasoo lip serum looks great! I am also totally buying Vitabrid serum after your recommendations so I'm totally game to try more from the brand.

Sharon said...

I've been eyeing a beauty fridge for a while now, and I must say I do love that cute pink one!

Mica said...

I've never heard of a beauty fridge before, what a fun idea! I guess sit wouldn't use much power either as it wouldn't need to be as cold as an actual fridge! Clever! :)

Hope that your week is going well :) I had a Christmas night out with friends last night, it was a lot of fun!

I always want to buy all the hair products, but end up barely using them...

FashionRadi said...

Ohh cool... that face steamer caught my eyes!

Ivana Split said...

happy Sunday!

Jenny said...

I've stopped using my hair straightener because I don't like how flat it makes my hair, so a straightening brush sounds like a good alternative! Do you find the brush difficult to clean?
