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 Greatest Hits Collection

Kiehl’s Greatest Hits Collection, $45

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!)
