Gifts of beauty are one of those things that are always welcome. One of my favorite times of the year is when the holiday beauty collections are released.
These are some of our favorite beauty items that we’ve encountered for the holiday season. They all make great gifts for that special someone on your list – or for yourself!

Ceramiracle First Light Serum
The First Light Serum nourishes your skin to be firmer and help alleviate the early signs of aging. With its skin softening and smoothing ingredients, you’ll see results in practically no time at all. It’s developed in California, but made in Korea, so you get the best of both worlds. Ceramiracle has no parabens, no mineral oil, is never tested on animals, and is fragrance free, too.
Snow Teeth Whitening Kit
We all want white teeth, but want to do it without damaging our teeth. Snow Teeth Whitening Kit has a proprietary whitening treatment that really works. In just a few treatments, you’ll see a noticeable difference in your teeth. Even better, the kit comes with a year’s supply of the whitening treatment. It’s enamel safe, and oh so easy to use. In just a few minutes, you, too, can have a Rockstar smile.
Purlisse Stocking Stuffers
This set is loaded with 9 of Purlisse’s most popular products in deluxe sample sizes. And then, there’s 6 more sheet masks, bringing the total number of items to 15. It’s a great way to introduce the line to someone new. The Purlisse Stocking Stuffers is also a great way to get smaller sizes of your faves for your makeup bag, gym bag, desk at work, or traveling.
Love Beauty and Planet
This is a new to me brand, but apparently they’ve been around a while. Love Beauty and Planet believes that you need to work on being eco-friendly from the start. They take this into consideration with their ingredient sourcing, as well as their social partnerships. They’re doing this at a budget friendly price point everyone can afford. But even better, their products are good quality. Their aluminum free deodorant really works, and the dry body oil absorbs quickly while leaving your skin feeling amazing. Their items are all cruelty free, and certified vegan, too.
Ponytail Pro Hairbrush
I know. You’re going “Whaaa? Who can’t make a ponytail?” hear me out. This brush makes your ponytail better. The brush side helps to smooth your hair and eliminate static. The comb side helps create even, straight parts and can also be used to create volume by teasing. The handle has a spot to keep a hair tie. Seriously, it’s genius. Get one to keep in your gym or yoga bag for perfect hair on the go.
Treat your winter dry skin with Natura Brasil. Their Cacau collection of body wash, body scrub, and body butter is a regimen that will leave your skin soft and silky smooth. Cacau is the main ingredient in cocoa butter, so you know how luxurious that is. With ingredients like olive oil and shea butter, it only gets better. Natura Brasil never uses parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, or sulfates, either.
enmarie Dry Body Brushing Kit
Have you heard about body brushing or dry brushing? It’s a method where you, basically, brush your body to help get rid of toxins, stress, and impurities. enmarie has a great kit to hep you get started on this journey. It has the body brush, and a collection of oils for the body. These include Beloved Body Oil, Treasured Face Oil, Nurturing Neck & Décolletage Oil, and Not to Be Forgotten Nail & Cuticle Oil.
