With less than a week away until Christmas, the countdown is on for getting all those gifts in time! I’m rounding up some of my favorite last-minute beauty gifts that can still be purchased in store or online. Hurry, those shipping cutoffs are coming up quick!
For the Lip Lover
Fresh Beauty has some of my all-time favorite gift sets– I love being able to try all the different products in mini sizes! If you have a few gals you need last-minute beauty gifts for, I recommend purchasing a couple of their gift sets, breaking them apart and bundling the items together. The Fresh A Sweet Fairytale Set (on sale!) is perfect for this!
For the red-lip lover- the New Fresh Sugar Icon Lip Treatment is perfect! It’s a blue-based red tinted treatment that applies sheer. The color is muted, and gives that just-ate-a-popsicle red stain… super pretty!
For the gal who loves a full, voluminous pout, Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme would be right up her alley! The line includes several different sheer glossy shades, along with clear. These look great on their own, or can be layered over another lip color color for a glossy pop. Lips look visibly plumped shortly after applying and is one of the highest rated lip plumpers!
For the Hair-itic
CHI Lava Ceramic 1.5″ Curling Iron is a must for your hair-loving friend. At under $65, this iron helps to create salon-worthy voluminous styles in just minutes! The iron barrel itself is made of a combination of ceramic and volcanic lava— um, how cool is that?!? The result is a super smooth iron that does not damage hair… in fact, my hair feels smoother and softer after using.
To get pretty, holiday wavy curls I simply clamp hair about an inch above the ends and wind up. I hold for about 30 seconds and then release and let the curl fall naturally. Be sure to wind and twist in opposite directions for each section of hair.
Once finished going around my entire head, I run my fingers through the curls to loosen. The end result is a pretty, beachy wave look!
The iron has five different heat settings, heating up to 450-degrees… careful, this iron gets HOT! The iron will automatically shut off after an hour– no more worrying if you left the iron on!
For the One with a Champagne Lifestyle on a Beer Budget
One of my current go-to facial moisturizers is the Trilogy Very Gentle Moisturizing Cream. It’s super luxe feeling and would make a wonderful gift for your bougie lady! Made for sensitive skin, this cream is fragrance-free and is made with natural ingredients including macqui berry. At just $40, this moisturizer won’t break the bank and will have her feeling like a million bucks. It;s no wonder this is a 2019 Allure beauty award winner.
For the New-Nails-Who-Dis Friend
Who doesn’t love a fresh set of gel nails? The only bummer is it can get super pricey to keep up with gels and they often ruin your nails. ManiMe is the perfect solution by offering gorgeous stick-on nail designs. Not your average nail wraps, ManiMe offers custom fit stick on gels that are easy to apply… and remove!
Each set is made custom based on your own nails– you simply choose your design and send snaps on your nails and voila– instant stick-ons custom fit just for you! ManiMe offers gift options to make it easy to gift a mani to your BFFs.
For the Tree-Hugger Granola Gal… or Guy
Where’s all the crunchy, granola gals at? Birkenstock recently launched a natural skin care line focused around cork oil extract— yes, the same material that’s used in their infamous slides. The cork oil complex stimulates cell renewal and strengthens the skin’s protective barrier, increasing the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Good stuff, right?
The collection offers a full range of skin products from facial oil, cleansers, toner, eye cream, moisturizer you name it that features natural ingredients and botanical extracts such as argan oil, calendula, green coffee, elderberry, jojoba and more.
The line is on the pricier side but is also sustainably made! Birkenstock uses recyclable packaging, renewable materials, and most of the products even offer a refill system! This line offers great last-minute beauty gifts for your environmentally-conscious friends and is definitely one to check out.
