Your pockets most likely sensed the holidays coming around before you did. My pockets shriveled up and screamed while I was making my shopping list. I had to tell them “it’s going to be all good baby boo, don’t worry” (which was a half-assed lie). This year’s Holiday beauty gift list is perfect for any squad, you’ll even make that one grumpy friend hype! (admit it, we all have one and love them). Give your friends the gift of feeling good and looking good this season.
If you follow me on IG, you already know this one would be on my list. The amount of love I have for rose water is weird to those that haven’t tried it. I always buy two, one to keep at home and another that stays in my bag. I also use it as a setting spray. So of course, I would share my love for it with others. This whole line is amazing, so the gift of options isn’t bad. Out of this killer trio, I have personally tried two, the cucumber with green tea facial spray, and of course, the rosewater facial spray. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the chamomile and lavender facial spray.The facial spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater is amazing for dehydrated skin(super useful during the winter time). The facial spray with Aloe, Cucumber& Green Tea is perfect for waking up dull skin. The facial spray with Aloe,Chamomile & Lavender relieves stress that your skin may have by balancing and brightening. The 2-oz. bottles are small enough to carry in any bag, and it’s also enough product to really test it out.
Now who doesn’t love a little pampering. This set is perfect for that one friend you know busted their ass working hard this year. Give them some very well-deserved downtime. This dope mask set comes with not one, not two, but SIX mask ready to tackle any issue. The Hungarian Thermal Water Mask is perfect for any aging concerns, it’ll help with fine lines, dullness and wrinkles. The Cucumber Gel Mask is great on skin that may get irritated or inflamed easily while hydrating, calming and renewing your face. The Irish Moor Mud Mask sucks any dirt, excess oil, and impurities and replaces them with amazing vitamins that are rich in nutrients all while adding moisture back into your skin. The Pumpkin Enzyme Mask has the same kick as a professional peel, mask and exfoliator. The delicious pumpkin scent might get you hungry and in a daze. Ouuu let’s feel bougie with the 24K Gold Mask! This mask has an anti-aging formula that uses 24K gold to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles leaving your face revitalized and restored. In other words, you’ll be feeling like a bad bitch during and after this mask. The Rose Stem Cell Mask uses science aka plant stem cell technology to help fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating, softening and strengthening your skin cells for a healthier appearance. These masks are great for sensitive skin, mature skin, acne-prone skin, normal skin, combination skin, dry skin and oily skin.
You can never have too many beautyblenders, just ask any makeup addict. That’s why this set of four beautyblenders is so handy. This limited-edition collection includes four beautyblenders in the most popular shades including two new shades, Joy and Ivy. It also includes blender cleansers that match with the beauty blenders. Plus, the whole candy theme of this packaging is super cute.
Ladies, prepare yourself. I introduce to you the MUST-HAVE palette of the season. The Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette. It includes 12 cherry-inspired hues, three matching Vice Lipsticks and two 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. It’s the perfect palette to achieve any daytime or after-dark looks. It’s made with Urban Decay’s formula, so you know these shades are going to slay at the holiday parties this season.
Years of working retail taught me how a good candle can set the mood, which is important when relaxing. This is another item on this list I have personally tried. I fuckingLOVE Voluspa candles. This Mini Candle Trio comes includes three amazing scents, Panjore Lychee, Japanese Plum Bloom, and Goji & Tarocco Orange. The Panjore Lychee scent is light and definitely not overwhelming. It’s sweet and feminine. The Japanese Plum Bloom scent is a perfect combination of fruity and floral. The Goji & Tarocco Orange scent is the strongest scent in this collection. It has a rich citrus scent with a sweet side. Even though its strong, it can easily become an all-time favorite. These candles can burn for40 hours and the packaging is so cute that is can be easily reused after its done.
