Holiday Gift Guide: Skincare everyone will be happy to find under the tree
By Carolina Malis
Christmas is around the corner and if you, like me, still have some pendings on your list, then believe me skincare is the answer. While we all have different skin types and need different ingredients and formulas to treat our skin, there's some products out there that fit everyone and I can assure you, after trying them your loved ones will ask where to get some for themselves once they run out.
I'm one to believe gifting skin care is not only a nice gesture but also a way to show someone you care about them, as taking care of your skin should not only be seen as something related to beauty but also about health. Do you have a significant other, a friend or a family member in need of a new sheet mask, moisturizer or some exfoliation? Then one of these can be the perfect gift for them.
This cream sold out in matter on days for a reason. The Vital Cream Duo co-created by popular YouTuber Joan Kim is not only a great gift for those starting off their skincare journey but also a great option to keep it simple yet powerful. You'll find two different moisturizers in the jar: one for daytime and one for nighttime. The day cream formula contains green tea extracts and Vitamin C to soothe and brighten skin, while the night cream is formulated with lavender extracts and Vitamin E to nourish and calm skin.
By far one of the most hydrating and intense masks I've ever tried, this one is pretty much equal as gifting a facial as you can have it on your face for as long as 45 minutes! Soaked in 60 milligrams of concentrated essence infused with pink algae, cactus oils, vitamin C and camelia, this mask uses a unique knitted cotton texture that makes it the perfect pal for lifting and lessening the appearance of wrinkles.
We all need exfoliation, that's for sure, but for those just getting to know the process it's better to start on the gentle side. These single-use exfoliating pads provide your skin with gentle yet powerful exfoliation while getting rid of dead skin cells, impurities, toxins and oils trapped inside your pores, leaving skin brighter, smoother and overall healthier. Soaked in a formula infused with lactic acid and resveratrol (a super antioxidant, naturally fermented ingredient which comes from red wine) these pads help prevent free radicals from pigmenting or forming wrinkles on your skin, AKA, young skin forever. Plus… it smells like wine.
Every good skincare routine starts with a good cleanser, and that's not debatable. If you wanna make sure your loved ones keep their skin clean and hydrated, this foam cleanser can be the perfect choice. Super easy on the skin and very hydrating, this foam cleanser is formulated with 100% real green tea leaves (which you can actually see floating around in the bottle) which are extremely soothing and refreshing for every type of skin. Best part? It's hypoallergenic so it will cleanse away impurities, waste and makeup without any kind of irritation.
