Well, the holiday season is upon us, folks (Can anyone actually believe that Thanksgiving is THIS week?), and it’s time to start making those lists and checking them twice. As a makeup and skincare lover, I’ve always loved giving (and receiving!) something shiny and new from the beauty department, and during the holidays, the beauty kits and sets are my absolute favorites. I seriously can’t even help myself. I don’t know if it’s the fun packaging, the feeling that you’re getting a steal, or just a plain old obsession, but every year I grab a couple of holiday beauty gifts to give away…AND maybe one or two for myself.
This year, I’m smitten with the #GiftableBeauty options from Dermstore and FINALLY got my hands on a couple of the coveted Harry Josh Pro Tools wonder hair tools. (Check out the blowout kit here, the Holiday Waves Kit here, and the entire drool-worthy collection here.) So far, I think the hype around these tools is totally deserved, and I’m now obsessed. The blow dryer is seriously powerful and has an ION function that cuts drying time in half. The 2-in-1 curling iron has a removable clip so that you can also use it as a wand – so good for switching things up. I can’t recommend either of these enough, and there’s something about the Harry Josh gift sets that just feel so luxe. But if “luxe” isn’t exactly the price range that you’re going for, Dermstore has so many affordable options as well. I’m a sucker for a good nude lipgloss and am loving this little 3-piece set from bareMinerals. There are also a ton of gifts under $50 that are sure to please the gals in your life, but don’t take my word for it – head over to Dermstore now to uncover wonder for everyone on your list.
