I’ve raved about my favorite beauty products on here time and time again. What can I say, skincare is an absolute must for me. The holidays are always an opportune time to try new things or restock things that you’re out of. Beauty gift sets are usually priced well this time of year and (hopefully) include a few things that catch your eye. There are a few sets I’ve seen that look rather promising, so here I’m sharing the beauty products on my Christmas wish list.
I can’t say enough about Olapex. I try to maintain my hair’s integrity especially after cutting it all off and regrowing it (that was no slow process). The trial kit is a great way to test out the products and see what you think. I gifted the full-sized set last year for Christmas to my mom and sister in law. It’s so good!
The lip balms of my dreams. I have an absurd amount of the lip balms/lip sleeping masks (one in my nightstand, a few in the bathroom, one in my bag). I’ve also used the glosses and the water sleeping mask (facial masks) that are all excellent. Dry and chapped lips aren’t a welcome thing ever, but particularly during the winter months. These make incredibly gifts and/or stocking stuffers!
Sunday Riley is a staple in my skincare routine. I’m a big fan of the Good Genes lactic acid treatment – I use it once a week for clarity and radiance and it smells like lemons, yum! I also use the CEO Glow for dullness and texture, the turmeric does wonders! I recently bought the Pink Drink but haven’t used it quite long enough yet to give a fully formed opinion, so far I like it! I’ve added the Go to Bed gift set to my wishlist because it’s full of other things I haven’t tried yet!
I’ll always adore Origins. It’s one of the very first beauty brands I purchased for myself! All the cool girls at ballet had products of theirs and the 20 something year old me could later finally buy it. I’m a big fan of just about everything of theirs, especially the Checks & Balances face wash and the Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask with Avocado & Swiss Glacier Water (it smells SO good!). I added the Drink Up Apricot version to my wish list because I love the Avocado version so much, this one HAS to also be amazing!
Bitch Perfect was my first nude lipstick purchase (last year?) and I’m forever hooked. Her cosmetics are impeccable and I fully endorse ALL of the lip products including the plumping gloss!
Now this is a brand I’m super curious to try. I added the set to my Christmas wish list bc I’ve heard so many marvelous things about it!
Of all of the products I’ve tried by Farmacy, I’ve yet to be disappointed! Their makeup remover balm Green Clean is incredible and the honey series is phenomenal! I use the AHA serum once a week and absolutely swear by the salve – it works WONDERS on my dry heels! I’ve yet to try the cherry series but it’s in my cart!
I’m a big fan of the NuFace device. I wrote all about it here. I also think the BeautyBio microneedling tool is amazing! It works wonders for fine lines and uneven tone and texture! I added the body attachment to my wishlist to test it out on my thighs!
These are all products in my “beauty closet” that are included in some fun holiday sets with extra goodies.
I’m including ColourPop because a) this brush set is amazing and a quarter of the cost of several other sets out there and b) their palettes are super inexpensive and wear really well!
