Trying to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be daunting. A great gift idea is skincare, but it can be difficult if you don’t know the specifics of their skin type or beauty routine. Well, fear not. We have put together a skincare gift guide that includes items that will work for everyone regardless of their skin type or their experience level. There is something for the skincare novice, to those that take skincare seriously. Also, there are skincare gifts are for men too. Skincare used to be seen as a ‘feminine gift,’ but that is not the case, anymore. I mean, I’m pretty sure men have skin and everyone should be taking proper care of their skin. Including men. So, we have got you covered.
This skincare gift guide is the latest in our series of gift guides, to help you find something for everyone on your list. Previously we’ve shared with you our makeup lovers gift guide, hair lovers gift guide, and a hostess gift guide. We hope that these lists take the guesswork out of holiday shopping and allow you more time to enjoy the season.
The Skincare Gift Guide 2021
BraunFacespa Pro 911 Facial Epilator: This is a bigger ticket item, but it is a multipurpose gift. The Facespa Pro 911 includes a “facial epilator, facial cleansing brush, microvibration toning head, cap, stand, and storage pouch.” This is like having a spa in a bag as you can remove hair, clean your skin, as well as tone your skin. We love this product so much it was one of our 5 ways to remove facial hair at home.
Sephora Favorites Skincare Must-Haves Set: The Skincare Must-Haves Set has everything to pamper your skin. The set includes cleansers, a retinol eye stick, a face mask, moisturizers, serums, toners, scrubs, and exfoliating body treatment, to name a few. A gift like this allows the person you are buying for to enjoy and experiment with new products that they might not necessarily buy themselves. This is a perfect gift for someone who you know loves to pamper their skin, but you don’t know exactly what products they enjoy using. Buy early, as this sells out!
Clinique Happy For Him 3-Piece Men’s Fragrance Set: This is a great introduction gift for the guy who isn’t necessarily into skincare, but is open to trying something new. The Happy For Him set gives you the classic Clinique Happy™ For Men Cologne Spray, face scrub, and a body and hair wash. Happy for men is an easy-to-wear citrus scent.
TATA HARPER Tata’s Daily Essentials 6-Piece Kit: This is a higher-ticket item that gives you a “travel-friendly 6 step regimen of Tata Harper’s best-selling products.” A dream kit that anyone who loves skincare will just fall in love with.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Metal Facial Cooling Globes: Facial rollers have been all the rage in skincare as they help with blood flow and help depuff the skin. However, stone rollers can be a breeding ground for bacteria, as they are porous- not so with these metal globes. This set is a pick-me-up in the morning and they stay cool on their own; however, they are made that much better if you keep them in the fridge or a beauty fridge. In fact, these made our list of 4 of my current favourite beauty products- in the July 2021 edition.
BEAUTYBIO Treat Sleep Repeat Set: Undereye gel masks are a fabulous way to depuff undereye and look refreshed. This set comes with a 5 pack of depuffing gel masks and a cute sleep mask. The product is “paraben-free; sulphate-free; formaldehyde-free; triclosan-free; hydroquinone-free; triclocarban-free; oxybenzone-free” and is not tested on animals.
Treat Sleep Repeat Set Gift Bundle Idea: You add this to a Christmas stocking as a larger item. You could also pair this with a fluffy robe. For that special home spa experience.
Dr. Barbara Sturm The SturmGlow™ Kit: This is a big-ticket set, but it is a luxurious gift for someone who truly loves skincare. The kit comes with an enzyme cleaner, hyaluronic serum, face cream, and glow drops. Barbara Sturm’s hyaluronic serum was one of my 4 current favourite beauty products – the August 2021 edition, because it is deeply hydrating and you use very little product. This is the type of skincare gift someone doesn’t necessarily purchase for themselves.
JACK BLACK The Daily Shave® Set: This is the gift for that person who wants to groom their face, and their beard. The set comes with The Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, Beard Lube® Conditioning Shave, and Post Shave Cooling Gel. Not to mention the product is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free, and colourant-free.
Bioré Brightening Collection Gift Set: This set includes a cleanser, a scrub, and Bioré strips – a great set to get skin looking poreless and glowing. A moderately-priced gift, that even a skincare novice will enjoy. Bioré strips did make the list of 4 of my favourite beauty products in February 2021.
Beauty Fridge: There any many amazing beauty fridges like the ones from Flawless– which made the list of 4 of my favourite beauty products in February 2021. Others even have mirrored doors or mirrors and LED lighting. You can find a fridge at any price point, they are not essential, but it is a great place to keep skincare items, which allows most products to last longer.
Beauty Fridge Gift Bundle Idea: Pair a beauty fridge with any moisturizing product and tools best kept cold like the SEPHORA COLLECTION Metal Facial Cooling Globes.
Taking time to buy a gift is a way to show people how much they mean to you. If you are really stumped, you can always get them a gift card to a beauty retailer/department store or online retailer, so they can choose their own skincare products. This may seem less personal, but paired with a smaller gift item- it is the best of both worlds.
