Happy Saturday, friends! I had to get my beauty gift guide out because Sephora just announced that they will be extending their Holiday Bonus Insider Event. Why is this a big deal? Because beauty rarely goes on sale…so when it does, you’ve got to jump on it- especially during the Holiday Season. This is a great time to snag gifts at a discount, but also, this is an ideal time to stock up on your skincare and makeup products while their on sale. I always “restock” my Glambox during this sale even if I don’t end up using the product for a few months. In this post, I’m sharing the items I think would be great gifts, my beauty and skincare favorites and what I’m buying during the sale. What will you be stocking up on this year?!
The fine print: Not a Sephora Beauty Insider? No biggie. You can easily sign up on their website and take advantage of the 15% off sale through Monday!
My Beauty and Makeup Favorites
1. La Mer Cream– Hands down, this is my favorite beauty product. It is BEYOND hydrating and really the only thing that I find give me enough moisture this time of year. It’s also anti-aging and has a cult following because of how great it works. I’ve used this for years and can attest to the quality of this product!
2. Charlotte Tilbury Eye Palette– By far the best eye palette I’ve ever used. This would be great to gift someone or to purchase for yourself. I love it because the color lasts and goes on beautifully smooth. These colors are neutral yet buildable for a smokey eye. I shared this palette last week (check my Beauty Highlights on Insta Stories if you missed it!) before going out for a girls night and you guys loved how it turned out. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
3.) Brown Sugar Lip Polish AND Body Polish– Another product I’ve used for 10 plus years. This is the best body scrub I’ve used- it’s granular but won’t irritate your skin because the sugar is marinating in a hydrating oil. I get really chapped lips in the Winter so this scrub is great for exfoliating the dead skin off!
4.) Loccitane Hand Cream– I love to give these as gifts or stocking stuffers and try to always have one in my car and purse! The almond scent is divine!
5.) Better Than Sex Mascara– I’ve tried them all and this is hands down my FAVORITE mascara. It give thick, long lashes without clumping.
6.) Kopari Deodorant– Buying this today! The reviews are amazing and I’ve been wanting to switch over to a natural deodorant. I’ll report back on how I like it!
7.) Jo Malone Candle– A WONDERFUL gift idea. This luxurious candle will make your house smell heavenly. I would freak out if I got this as a gift! The look of the candle is simple yet elegant and would go with any home decor.
8.) St Tropez Self Tanning Mousse– I’m obsessed! I’ve talked about this on my Insta Stories as well (check my beauty highlights!) and shared a before and after of my legs. The color is natural and beautiful. I love it because it doesn’t transfer to sheets or clothing and doesn’t have that “self tanner” smell.
9.) La Mer Eye Cream– I’ve had my jar for two years so it lasts FOREVER! This product give real results. It depuffs, helps with fine lines and overall makes me look much better than I should given how much sleep I average, lol!
10.) Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat– A before and after is saved to my beauty highlights! I love that this product can fake a plumper pout. It also prevents any dark lipstick from spreading into the fine lines around your lips. A must have for any gal!
11.) Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer– I’ve used this for 15 years and absolutely would die without it, lol. You can build the color if you want more coverage or keep it sheer if that’s your jam! I cannot recommend this product enough!
12.) Becca Eye Brightener– The best concealer out there! It brightens your eyes right up- I swear it seems like magic. The formula is creamy and it doesn’t settle into fine lines.
13.) Beauty Blender– A must have! This makes application of your products so easy and creates a flawless look!
