Must-Have Winter Skin & Body Care
I’ve been an Herbivore Botanicals fan for years and adore their clean formulas and quality skin and body care products. For the holiday season, they have some amazing gift sets including Rainbow Minis Serums + Oils for just $44! Here are my other top holiday picks for gorgeous glowing skin:
- COCO MINT and HOT COCO Coconut Oil Body Scrubs: Not only do these smell amazing, these sugar scrubs gently exfoliate leaving skin super smooth.
- CLOUD MILK Coconut + Maca Firming Body Cream: A must for the upcoming winter season! Deeply moisturizes dry skin while providing firming benefits. This makes my skin so soft!
- MILKY WAY 10% AHA + Oat Soothing Exfoliating Serum: Ultra-gentle exfoliating serum helps to hydrate and plump for healthy, youthful-looking skin.
- NOVA 15% Vitamin C + Turmeric Brightening Serum: Potent THD vitamin C serum targets dullness and dark spots for a beautiful, radiant complexion.
Must-Have Holiday Fragrance Set
Who doesn’t love unwrapping a beautiful fragrance set? Lancôme La Vie Est Belle fragrance set features soft, romantic floral and sweet notes blends iris, patchouli, spun sugar and praline with Arabian Jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. Inspired by the French saying meaning ‘life is beautiful,’ this scent was designed to express the joys of femininity and choosing your own happiness. I love that the scent is soft and sophisticated while being modern– this is not your grandmother’s floral perfume. This set would make a lovely gift for anyone who loves sweet floral fragrances.
This 3-piece set includes a full-size eau de parfum spray, a travel-size EDP spray perfect for on-the-go, and a perfumed body lotion. I love the beautiful bottle design- chic, feminine and so pretty sitting on the vanity table. I love how Lancôme offers quality fragrances with a French glam twist.

When it comes to beauty box subscriptions, the Allure Beauty Box can’t be beat. Each box contains premium beauty products curated by Allure editors, so you know they are good.

If getting that perfect glow tops your beauty lovers wish list, Physicians Formula makeup will be right up their alley. Created by an allergist more than 80 years ago, this hypoallergenic, clean and cruelty-free brand offers the best in budget-friendly beauty. Their Butter Bronzer is hands-down one of the best bronzers available and you can’t go wrong with their collection of glow-getters and blushes. And I’m not just saying this because I work for the brand– as a beauty junkie I truly believe these products are top tier yet easy on the wallet.
The brand recently launched Build-A-Bundle, where you can customize a gift set by choosing from a variety of bestselling products! The 5 products for $45 is the best value- with each product coming in at under $10. There are also $25 and $35 bundles available as well.
For the empowered skincare lover on your list, I recommend treating them to Veriphy Skincare. This women-led skincare brand features clean, natural-based, vegan and cruelty-free skincare formulations that are backed by science. Each product is infused with their proprietary PhytoSpherix®, which helps support skin health to reveal a bright, hydrated and an even skin tone, reducing the signs of aging.
The Summer Skin Set features four of Veriphy’s best-selling fan-favorite products: Self Absorbed Facial Moisturizer, Hit or Mist Facial Toner, Power Trip Facial Serum and 20/20 Eye Cream. Products in this set are designed to complement one another to restore skin’s moisture levels, deeply hydrate and detoxify skin. Plus, how beautiful is this packaging? The frosted green glass and gold accents are giving holiday vibes.
Luxe Gifting Favorites
When it comes to luxe body care, L’Occitane En Provence has some of the best. I absolutely love their Almond line, which has skin softening properties. Their Almond Softening Trio makes the perfect gift for under $50. It features the award winning Almond Shower Oil, which leaves skin clean and silky soft; the Almond Milk Concentrate, which is so creamy and smoothing; as well as a hand cream.
My skin feels so moisturized and soft after using these products- this is the perfect set to combat dry winter skin. Each product has a soft slightly sweet almond milk scent that is just so comforting. I love applying the milk concentrate after bathing with the shower oil– such an indulgent experience!
For the boujee beauty lover, give them the gift of couture with Valentino Beauty. Inspired by the Maison Valentino fashion house, this full makeup collection features an array of lipstick, eye products, blush, powders and more. Most products feature the signature Valentino red and gold design.
The line offers impactful yet wearable colors and shades, many of which can be refilled to encourage sustainability. My top picks from this brand include:
- Rosso Valentino High Pigment Refillable Lipstick: One of my go-to shades, 111A Underdressed Velvet, is a beautiful dark brick nude. Perfect for the holiday season!
- Eye2Cheek Eyeshadow and Blush: This radiant finish buildable color can be worn on cheeks as blush & highlighter as well as on eyes.
- Color Flip Eyeshadow Palette: Highly-pigmented shades for eyes in a mix of finishes. I love the compact size- just flip to reveal more shades!
Holiday Worthy Hair
When it comes to hair, I love using Drybar products for styling. I recently picked up The Mixologist Magic Makers Hair Care Kit, a six-piece hair kit. The set includes the mixologist interchangeable styling iron, 2 full-size products and 3 travel-size products. The interchangeable styling iron is so neat– it includes a 1″ curling barrel, wand, and waver to create custom wavy hair styles. On sale for just $99, this set is SO worth it and would make an amazing gift!
The wands are all so easy to use and I love that I can easily switch them out. The set also includes a number of Drybar must-have hair styling products: Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist; Detox Dry Shampoo; Triple Sec Three-in-One Finishing Spray; On the Rocks Shampoo and Conditioner.
