One of my favorite parts of my routine on a solid beauty day is that it reminds me of visits to the beauty counter with my mother and grandmother. I learned to take care of my skin by borrowing their products, and I learned that I was worth the hassle of a good beauty regimen by watching them update with the latest trends in skincare each year. Skincare is the base of our beauty and these classic brands are the foundation:
Kiehl’s has combined their bestsellers into a gift set featuring all the iconic classics: moisturizer, facial cream, recovery cream, hand salve, and more. Every beauty lover will be thrilled to see a “Kiehl’s” box on Christmas morning — plus proceeds from your gift go to Feeding America. (Find more ways to give back with your gifts here!)
Revitalize 2015 mornings with this Estée Lauder 3-step gift set including an energy lotion, recovery complex, and vita-mineral moisture creme. In a giftable red matte package, it’s a holiday gift that says “I know what looks good” on multiple levels.
Anyone on your list dealing with winter weather will appreciate Clinique’s formulas to repair skin. This set comes with a custom-repair serum, a firming cream, and wrinkle correcting eye cream.
Mary Kay’s Timewise brand has been producing great age-defying products for as long as I can remember. This gift set has a cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen, and night solution, all of which reduce fine lines and target skin resilience.
