Surprising a beauty obsessive with a skin-care present for the holidays is basically like gift-wrapping the coveted dewy glow. Because, after all, all a skin-care buff wants (at any point in the year) is a complexion that says, “Why yes, I do know how to take care of myself.”
But how do you know what to get without logging hours online researching? Command-quit those tabs, because our editors curated this goldmine of skin-care essentials—from an argan oil to hydrate and glow courtesy of Josie Maran to an organizer for your aficionado’s growing collection—so you don’t have to.
Keep scrolling to find the skin-care gifts to give the glow-chasers on your list.
Josie Maran Peace, Love & CBD Set, $80 ($114 value)
It’s winter, so your skin-care enthusiast is shifting to a different regimen in order to keep her skin at maximum dew. Help her lock in that much-needed moisture with Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter to feed skin with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, plus add a touch of soothing magic with CBD-rich Skin Dope Argan + 100 mg CBD. It’s just like gifting her skin a summer vacation.
FaceTory Beauty Fridge, $100
In case you didn’t know, a mini fridge is the new skin-care it-item. Your jade-rolling BFF can now cool off her most-loved products to prolong their shelf life and give her sheet masks a de-puffing chill, so that they work double-time when she’s ready to slap one on before bed or first thing in the a.m.
The key to thriving as a beauty wizard (no, it’s not magic) is organization. Give her a home for all her smaller, easy-to-lose products like all the sample-size eye serums, lip balms, and makeup brushes she’s compiled over the years.
Get ready for thank you note overload when you hand off this at-home microneedling tool. Designed to bring the results of a clinical treatment to your bestie’s bathroom, it glides easily over skin to help rejuvenate and firm.
Josie Maran Good Vibes Set, $70 ($108 value)
Your beauty maven is always in the know, and that means she understands that skin care is a full-body thing. With this clean set, she’ll find Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter to moisturize from the head down as well as Skin Dope Hemp Seed Oil to help prevent the look of fine lines and wrinkles, all without the toxins she doesn’t want.
If she cares this much about her skin health, then she most likely tries to keep up a solid hair-care routine as well. Amp up her regimen by with this towel, which works to cut down drying time by 50 percent and help improve overall hair health. So you’re not only gifting gorgeous locks— you’re gifting extra time.
After an all-over dry, your giftee could use a solid de-tangle—but not from just any old brush. This one features super soft bristles that glide right through hair to nix breakage and painful knots. The end result? Ultra silky hair minus the back-and-forth battle to get there.
Space NK Travel Bag, $46
Give the gift of portability with this on-the-go makeup bag she can bring with her on weekend getaways or tucked in her tote for everyday makeup (ahem, moisturizer) touch-ups at work.
Josie Maran Nothing But Pure Set, $25 ($39 value)
Speaking of skin care on-the-go, these two travel-size argan oil essentials—100% Pure Argan Oil for a blast of essential fatty acids and antioxidants to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and Skin Dope Hemp Seed Oil for some plant-powered hydration—will fit into the travel bag above. She’ll never have to worry again about keeping up her clean and organic skin-care routine while vacationing.
You know that friend who’s constantly switching up her hair color or in a long-term relationship with her curling iron? She’ll love you for this. With four different products all aimed to repair broken, color-treated tresses and protect against heat, better hair days will be within her reach.
So, you’ve got a beauty aficionado who also cares about sustainability on your list? This moisturizing bar is made with oils like sweet almond, avocado, and apricot kernel oil—just without the plastic, pumps, or toxic chemicals. Will she have the softest skin of her life (even softer than her infant self)? Only time will tell.
An overnight glow, anyone? The silk fibers in this cushion cover allow skin to glide over the pillow (rather than getting tugged or stretched—we all know the dreaded morning pillow-case face crease). Plus, it resists the pulling of hair cuticles to help give her a boost in the anti-broken-strands department, too—so your beauty lover can finally wake up like this.
