Christmas is merely hours away and the comfort of overnight shipping has passed….now where do we go from here? I’ve put together a list of items I love you can still pick up in store for the beauty junkie in your life. All of the products are great additions to a well thought out skin care routine to help achieve a healthy winter glow.
I’ve been loving PLANT since I met the founder in Dallas back in the spring. When PLANT launched in Target stores nationwide this year It made it even easier for me to recommend their products for clean beauty junkies that like to shop in store. This Matcha face mask is a powder consistency that you activate with water. The purifying properties of white clay with the powerful antioxidants of organic, fair trade matcha (powdered green) tea reduce inflammation and fights damaging free radicals. The blend also contains organic essential oil of chamomile, known for its soothing, anti-irritant properties.
You guys know that I’m obsessed with glowy, radiant skin and Cover FX is king when it comes to illumination in cosmetics. I’m loving the Illuminating Prime & Set Kit from Cover FX you can find in stores at Sephora. This holiday gift set includes the Cover FX Illuminating Primer that leaves a healthy glow and preps the skin for makeup. Use the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in shade “Moonlight” to give a radiant golden pearl glow. The Cover FX highlighter drops are beaming and perfect for that Instagram beauty guru glow. Wrap up your make-up look with the Illuminating Setting Spray to set your makeup and keep the skin looking healthy and powder free. I’m OBSESSED with this kit!!!
This Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar by Biore has a dual action formula designed to cleanse and exfoliate to draw out dirt and oil that clogs pores for a deep clean. Infused with natural charcoal and jojoba beads the charcoal bar draws out impurities and gently exfoliates for smoother, brighter looking skin. The natural peppermint oil leaves your skin feeling tingly fresh but never uncomfortable. Natural Charcoal, known for its ability to draw out and trap deep-down impurities leaving pores clean and minimized. If you have oily, acne prone skin or stubble with body acne you will love this. For my dry skin baddies use this once a week as a treatment to avoid charcoal from overly drying out skin.
This single-use nügg exfoliating mask from Target contains a powerful blend of precious natural oils and extracts to gently exfoliate and condition the skin to reveal a radiant, smooth complexion in just 5 to 10 minutes. Jojoba Beads and Natural L-Lactic Acid gently remove dead and dry skin cells, smooth the skin and refine the look of pores without a dry after feel. Cranberry Seed Oil, Aloe Juice and Olive, Cranberry, Grape and Linseed Oil help hydrate, soothe and nourish skin. It comes in a practical single-serve cup which protects the mask from oxidation, is easy-to-use, convenient, and perfect as a stocking stuffer.
Forget the instagram bears and head to your local drug store to pick up the Beauty Gummies by Olly. Bright eyes, dewy skin, healthy hair—it all starts at the cellular level, way down deep where nobody can see. The OLLY Undeniable Beauty, is an expert blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that help you look your best, 24-7. Like an on-call beauty squad, these delightful gummies flood your system with all the lovely stuff, like collagen, that gives a glow from within.
Stocking stuffers for guys can be a bit of a panic, especially if you don’t know what the different guys in your life like. I’m going to walk you through some of my favorite grooming products and who they are a good pick for!
Griff’s Razor Glide Shave Cream comes from California based 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons. This Luxurious shaving cream that I’ve recently fallen for is a thick cream that glides onto the skin with a calming scent and hydration that prepares the skin for a close shave. The chilling mint cools, while the rosemary supports healthy collagen development and keeps damaging free-radicals at bay. Grab it online HERE or pick this one up at a Local 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons, or Griff’s Shave Bar!
With so many razors on the market how do you pick a quality one that won’t break the bank. I love the Harry’s brand razors because they give a close shave that is comfortable. This Harry’s razor kit also includes a 5 blade cartridges that will keep him stocked up for a while. Find this Harry’s razor kit at Target for under $15!
For skincare as a stocking stuffer a lip balm is always nice but splurging for something he would never buy himself that he will benefit from all year long is a much more helpful investment. The Kiehls Age Defender line is a mens anti aging range featuring one of my favorite serums “The Power Serum”
Stocking filler items like this “The Barber Book” and Conair wooden comb are unique items that will inspire and maintain his next look. I love the barber book because it features a lot of great, modern hair styles for men but it also works well as a chic coffee table book for his place!
Cologne can be a tricky gift to give, especially with so many new scents coming out around the holidays. A staple fragrance in my winter fragrance wardrobe is Gentleman Only By Givenchy. This woody, spicy, oriental scent has notes of sophisticated bergamot, a warm trio of incandescent spices and is topped with sensual vanilla and sandalwood. I love it because its spicy and sexy yet sweet and lovable. Perfect for date night.
