Welcome to the Christmas Gift Guides 2019! I love Christmas and gift giving and I am so excited to share my top gift picks for the holidays. In these guides you will find the same rules applied as my Instagram recommendations- I will only recommend products I actually love and have held in my own two hands. I would gift all of these recommendations to my own friends and family. All links are to Australian websites but most products are available internationally. Prices are in AUD. I hope you find these guides helpful and have a wonderful holiday season!
1. ACEOLOGY ICE GLOBE FACIAL MASSAGER – $64
Nothing adds a hint of luxury to your skincare routine than a dedicated facial massage tool. These cooling globes are used with your serums to soothe and calm irritated skin and target puffiness when used with the different massage techniques. I recommend popping them in the fridge first for an extra cooling sensation. Shop here.
2. SLIP BEAUTY SLEEP COLLECTION GIFT SET – $132
Sleeping on silk has many benefits and Slip are the best in the biz. Using a Slip silk pillowcase is shown to reduce friction which in turn helps prevent fine lines, tangled hair and silk won’t absorb as much of your precious face cream as regular pillowcases. This beautiful set from Slip contains one of the their best selling pillow cases and a lush silk sleeping mask. Shop here.
3. VOTARY NATURAL LIP OIL – $60
Votary are known for their facial oils but this Natural Lip Oil takes the cake for me. A beautiful blend of African watermelon, passionflower, jojoba and sweet almond oils to soften and boost moisture. This is a thoughtful and decadent gift for someone special who has it all. Shop here.
4. PETER THOMAS ROTH MIX, MASK & HYDRATE KIT – $118
The perfect pack for any skincare junkie. Skincare can be a tricky category to gift in but this assortment of masks takes away the guess work. Anyone will find the perfect mask for them in this assortment and it makes multi masking easy for when your skin needs a little bit of everything! Shop here.
