How was your Thanksgiving? For me, Thanksgiving is a great time to connect with family and eat delicious food but also the last road block before Christmas. In my family there were no Christmas decorations or music allowed before Thanksgiving. So, Thanksgiving over means Christmas is on its way! Speaking of Christmas, are you so excited for cyber Monday deals? Browsing the internet in my pajamas with a warm drink and pie getting great deals is the best. SO, today I'm sharing by gift guide for the beauty lovers in your life because many of these sites will likely have some cyber Monday deals!
First up is my favorite hair product brand--Davines! I learned about this brand through Birchbox and then was SO excited when my hair salon started carrying and using it! It is seriously the best smelling and leaves my hair super soft, manageable, and smelling delicious! This kit looks perfect and is on my own wish list.
Speaking of Birchbox, my go-to Christmas gift for anyone who enjoys beauty is a Birchbox subscription. You can get a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription. My favorite is the 3 month because it's affordable at $30 and yet is a fun mail surprise for 3 months--well past Christmas morning! Most people wouldn't get this for themselves but love the surprise and trying different beauty brands.
One of my favorite finds from Birchbox has been this lip brand Laqa & co. These lip crayons are very smooth and hydrating and have great colors. I have the bee's knees (coral), menatour (purple!), and beezelbub (rose). I am pretty obsessed with the purple. It's not something I wear to work every day but it's a great color that's not weirdly purple. I've gotten a ton of compliments when I wear it. This kit is a great value and gives a good range of colors.
My other favorite lip brand, which Birchbox unfortunately doesn't carry is the Fresh brand. I first tried their lip balm as a free sample and loved it. Their balms are very hydrating and smooth and smell so amazing. Similar to the above, this kit is a splurge but has great colors and are high quality. Since I already have most of the Laqa & Co. colors, the Fresh kit is on my wish list!
Speaking of a splurge, if you're looking for the ultimate palette, I'm pretty sure this is it. SO many beautiful colors. I am always attracted to Tarte's dreamy, shimmery colors and this is no exception.
If you're looking for a more affordable option, this one is on my list for that reason and still has similar colors.
If you're looking for a cosmetics case to hold some goodies, this would make a fun, affordable option!
If your beauty lover is also practical (but doesn't have super sensitive skin!) they would love this cleanser. It's an exfoliating cleaner and it smells so lemon-y. It reminds me of some of the Fresh products I talked about before. I originally got this as a Birchbox sample but am sadly all out. It would make a great gift since it's a bit expensive.
Speaking of a luxury, this body oil from One Love is amazing. It smells so beautiful: floral-- yet not overwhelming--and warm. I'm so impatient that I hate how long it takes for moisturizer to sink in and how it can leave a film on your skin. This body oil sinks in fast and yet is super moisturizing. I originally got it in PopSugar box and have been obsessed with it ever since!
What beauty lover doesn't love a face mask? This Korean one is so fun and moisturizing. It didn't bother my sensitive and combination skin and was fun since it's a sheet mask. If you have a few beauty lovers on your list, I would break this multi pack up and add a few other fun items for a great gift.
Something that would make a great pair with the sheet mask is this dry shampoo ornament. The Living Proof dry shampoo is my favorite because it's super effective and it smells amazing-- very clean. I love that you could even hang this on the tree!
Are you ready for my favorite gift suggestion? I stumbled across this one while curating these gift guides and think it's perfect. It's my favorite color (rose gold!) plus is purse size. I haven't gotten a flat iron in years so I had to put this on my wish list!
That's a wrap! This gift guide was so fun to put together since I love beauty gifts and a bunch of people on my list do too. What are you picking up for Cyber Monday?
