Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Hello everyone! It's been a crazy busy few weeks at work and dealing with a never-ending cold/cough. But I thought I would sneak in here with a (mostly) beauty holiday gift guide! I'm definitely more into skincare than makeup in my old age (she says at the ripe age of 24), but I tried to put together a collection of things that almost anyone on your list would appreciate!

Origins have a ton of gift sets right now for a variety of skin types. I'm a huge fan of the ginzing range, and I think it works for a variety of skin types. I'm super oily and acne prone and I find it works really well on my skin, but my mom has mature, dryer skin and she loves it too. There are also some amazing deals--the ginzing set is only nominally more than the full sized moisturizer included in it!

I'm a huge fan of the Ultra Facial Cream. While it's quite a heavy cream, I find its one of the best things to help my super sensitive skin in the cooler months. I purchased the Face Care set as something to use in the depths of the winter, but I'm also loving the Disney editions they have of some of their classic items!

The sugar lip balms are some of my favourite all-time lip products, and every year Fresh brings out different sets including at least one of the lip products. I received the Sugar Lip Prep 'N Paint set which has the lip exfoliant and serum, but the Sugar Lip Beauty Box would make an amazing present.

Peter Thomas Roth: 
Most of us have multiple skin issues that we want to address, so having a gift set with a wide range of products is an excellent idea. I get a version of the Meet You Mask set every year and am particularly keen on the pumpkin enzyme mask included!

Clé de Peau: 
For an actual makeup product, I've been loving the eye crayons from Clé de Peau that I was kindly sent. They're super easy to throw on and blend in, and the colours can transition from subtle to smokey very easily. It's more of a luxury item, but it's something that beauty lovers would love and probably wouldn't treat themselves to.

Gift cards:
When in doubt, give them a gift card. I threw in a Roots one here because it was the only one I had on hand, but Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, Ultra, or wherever else you want is bound to have one. Or for a more versatile option, you can always get a pre-paid credit card. They look super festive this time of the year and work almost anywhere.

I hope this post gave you some ideas for treating people on your Christmas list!
