Skincare Gifts
  • Bliss Crown JewelsI love a good body lotion – one that smells good but not too strong and gives your skin lots of hydration without being too thick. The body butter is what got me hooked on bliss, and a full-size version is included in this gift set, along with their popular fabulous foaming face wash (another favorite of mine), triple oxygen instant energizing mask and lovehandler. The best part is that you save $20 off the regular price of these products, which offer cleansing, revitalizing, toning and smoothing benefits when used together. Scroll down to enter to win this gift set! {, $45}
  • bareMinerals Spectacular SkinThis is another brand that I’ve been using for what seems like forever. I was excited to try out their skincare products, which are perfect for everyday use and leave your skin feeling softer, smoother and younger-looking. Start the day with the Purifying Facial Cleaner, hydrate your skin in both the morning and at night with the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer Combination Skin, then revitalize your skin overnight with the Active cell Renewal Night Serum. {, $58}
  • Tarte Brazilliance skin rejuvenating maracuja face and body self tanner & self tanning face towelettes It’s no secret that sun tanning is bad for our skin, but I can’t help but love the look of being tan. So during the winter months especially, I rely on great sunless tanning products like these from Tarte. The key is finding tanners that don’t have a fake tan smell or leave you streaky and orange. With Tarte’s application glove, it’s easy to apply the self tanner streak-free. And I love the towelettes for your face because they’re so easy-to-use, convenient and refreshing. With Tarte’s self tanning products, you get the benefits of maracuja oil, which is known to replenish, rebuild and brighten your skin. {, face & body – $39, towelettes – $21}
  • Dr. Brandt Glow KitI’ve been using these products for only a couple of weeks and already notice a difference. The Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme is inspired by their in-office ruby laser procedure, as it lightens up your skin with illuminators, optical diffusers and micronized ruby crystals, minimizing the look of lines and wrinkles and giving you radiance, glow and hydration. Then at night, you apply the Overnight Resurfacing Serum with time-release retinol and other benefits for your skin that works while you sleep. {, $65}
  • Mary Kay Pomegranate Satin Hands Pampering SetMy hands have been so dry this winter already! Treat a friend or family member with this limited-edition pampering gift set and they’ll have everything they need to keep their hands soft and hydrated – Fragrance-Free Satin Hands Hand Sanitizer, Pomegranate Satin Hands Satin Smoothie Hand Scrub and Pomegranate Satin Hands Hand Cream. {, $38}
  • Ingrid Nilsen x YES TO Cucumbers/Blueberres Cleansing Facial WipesI try to do my full skincare routine every day and night, but let’s face it, I get lazy more than I’d like to admit. For those occasions, or when I’m traveling or just need a quick face wash, I look to cleansing wipes like these ones from YES TO. For the holidays, they’ve teamed up with Youtube beauty guru Ingrid Nilsen (aka Miss Glamorazzi) and design students from FIDM to create limited-editions of their popular cucumber and blueberry wipes. They’re packed with superfoods and are all-natural, biodegradable. {yestocarrots, $6}

  • Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Magic KitSephora literally has gift sets for anyone and everyone on your list.
