The 10 Best Holiday Gifts to Buy for the Skin Care Aficionado
A good beauty lover always knows that the best thing you can do for yourself is to create a flawless foundation ... and we don't mean with foundation. Skin care is the most important part of a day to day beauty routine, as it ensures that your good looks will last long after your liquid liner fades away. Even if the skin care aficionado in your life is already well-stocked with cleansers and creams galore, you can still blow her mind with one of these 10 must-have holiday gifts.
Tata Harper Tata's Daily Essentials(, tataharperskincare.com)
Here's one example of anti-aging skin care we wouldn't be offended to receive as a gift: Beloved by beauty editors and natural beauty experts alike, Tata Harper's flawless line of chemical-free skin care is suitable for all skin types for both preventative and proactive anti-aging. It's just as good as your twenties as it is in your forties and beyond, and this travel-sized "discovery" kit is the perfect way for the recipient to try before she splurges on the full-sized product ... and we guarantee she will.
Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcases with Copper Oxide (, iluminagebeauty.com)
It's common knowledge (right?) that trading in your standard cotton pillowcases for silk or satin is better for your hair and skin, so take those beauty benefits to the next level with a little something extra. The fibers in this pillowcase are embedded with copper oxide, which is clinically proven to reduce the appearance and development of wrinkles. This is the kind of thing that every beauty lover wants, but feels ridiculous buying for herself—so save your friend or family member the trouble by doing all the dirty work for them.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II(, esteelauder.com)
We've never heard of someone nothaving total-skin-overhaul success with this beloved cult favorite serum. A few drops go a long way, which makes this jumbo size bottle extra luxurious.
Fresh Face Mask Essentials (0, )
Whether your giftee is a longtime Fresh fanatic or just getting into the brand, you can't go wrong with this set. The Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask and Rose Face Mask are—and we mean it when we say this—must havesfor every skin care collection. We've been known to use both in the same night. The Sugar Face Polish is, quite literally, just the icing on the cake.
FOREO Luna Mini (9, foreo.com)
Because of coursethe skin care aficionado in your life already owns a Clarisonic or two, give her something she doesn't have, like this newer, slightly under-the-radar cleansing tool. We can't speak highly enough of its deep pore-cleansing powers, and better still, the safe silicone brush head means it never needs to be replaced. Buy them for all your friends, and one for yourself, too.
Kate Somerville Simply Glowing Kit (5, katesomerville.com)
We're going to go ahead and assume that every skin care lover is already fully aware of the unique powers of the ExfoliKate treatment, but it's well worth giving her a restock alongside the brand's super gentle cleanser and much-hyped Dilo Oil. If she's somehow (?!) slacked on the ExfoliKate bandwagon, even better. She'll never stop thanking you for changing her life ... or at the very least, her skin.
SK-II Pitera Essence Set(5, sk-ii.com)
This brand, based on the fermentation process of Japanese sake, is a must have on countless celebrity wishlists. The formula is heralded for its just-short-of-magical anti-aging properties, which help to clear and promote radiance in all skin types. The operative word here is "glowing."
Dr. Dennis Gross Steamer Solutions(5, dgskincare.com)
Give the gift of a salon-quality facial any time with this DIY steamer, which can be used in five- to twenty-minute intervals. This professional device is not for the faint of heart, or of skin care routine, but there's truly nothing better for the genuine devotee.
Arcona Essential Glow Holiday Kit (, arcona.com)
We don't know what it is about Arcona's products that make them all just ever so slightly superior to most others we've tried, but the proof is in the pudding ... or in the Magic Dry Ice hydrator, which infuses serious moisture as well as imparting a noticeable radiance. The Triad Pads are our secret weapon for removing makeup and fighting blemishes on those nights we just can't bear to give our faces a full cleansing, which makes this set all but necessary for the holiday party circuit.
Erno Laszlo Favorites Set(, )
This impossibly good skin care brand has been around forever, but they have a sort of insider-y marketing presence, which means that even your most skin care-obsessed friend may have no idea it exists. If she asks any questions, all you need to tell her is that Marilyn Monroe swore by Laszlo's products, some of which were custom-formulated for her by the man himself. Not exactly a hard sell.
