This holiday season, pamper her with products that truly treat her skin with the TLC it deserves. Take a peek at these essential skin-care sets, perfect for a variety of skin types and concerns.
From luxury French brand Melvita, the Nectar de Roses gift set ($45) contains an array of the label’s most luxurious rose products, including Rose Nectar, a delicate cream infused with wild rose petal extract and rose hip oil that kisses cheeks with a light and natural flush; Rose shower gel, a moisturizing blend of rose seed milk, rose floral water and rosehip seed oil; and Rose hand cream, enriched with extracts of wild rose petal, rose floral water and rose seed milk to leave hands baby soft (so essential during a brutal winter).
LIFTLAB, an authoritative anti-aging company, uses its Cell Protection Protein as the key ingredient in its products. This naturally occurring protein is known to strengthen cell membranes and protect the skin from harsh external elements. The Holiday Travel Special ($195) is a limited edition set packaged in a chic travel clutch by Fleabags LLC. Inside are two LIFTLAB skin treatments: softening PURIFY & CLARIFY Daily Cleanser & Detox Mask and wrinkle-busting LIFT & FIRM Eye Cream.
For skin that requires exceptional care and attention, SOS 27 ($120) from Cosmetics 27 may be just the thing. The anti-aging brand uses bio-extracts of Cenetella Asiatica in its products, which help to regenerate skin cells and rebalance the skin to leave it smoother, softer and overall healthier. SOS 27 contains petite sizes of CLEANSER 27, a luxurious cleansing balm that sloughs dead skin as it cleans; ESSENCE 27, a serum that relaxes tired skin; and BAUME 27, an anti-aging powerhouse that softens and repairs skin.
Women who appreciate sweet, playful scents will love the absolutely delightful güd Natural Body Butters ($11.99). Not only do they smell amazing, they’re also free of parabens, petrochemicals and phthalates and don’t perform animal testing. The cream drenches skin in hydrating shea butter and sinks right in, leaving it smooth and never greasy. Scents include Floral Cherrynova, Orange Petalooza, Vanilla Flame and Pearanormal Activity.
Ask anyone who routinely checks the mirror to blot those unsightly oil slicks: blotting papers come in very handy. The Boscia Fashionably Matte set ($22) contains two packages of the brand’s beloved oil blotting linens, each made of pure natural leaf fibers from the Abaca tree plant. In addition to the packages of 100 count green tea sheets and fresh sheets, a linen holder etched with an artful Japanese cherry blossom print is also included. Perfect for on-the-go touchups and ideal to slip inside a purse or desk drawer.
Korean beauty brand Dr. Jart+ is considered the purveyor of the ultimate BB cream, which quickly became one of the most hyped skin care products of the year. Women loyal to the brand or those looking to try it out for the first time will love The Original BB Cream set ($34), which includes four .5 ounce tubes of Renewalist BB Beauty Cream SPF 40, Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm SPF 25, Water Fuse BB Beauty Balm SPF 25 and Premium BB Beauty Balm SPF 45.
A perfect pout sets the tone for plenty of merry mistletoe moments! The Sara Happ Red Velvet and Lip Slip gift set($40) includes the limited edition red velvet Lip Scrub and a jar of Happ’s beloved Lip Slip. The scrub is heavenly scented and infused with ultra-hydrating kukui nut, sweet almond and macadamia oils, which leave lips extra soft, while the luxurious Lip Slip balm transforms lips from merely soft to downright supple.
