2017 Holiday Beauty Exclusives
I absolutely love beauty products (which you probably already know if you've been following for a while) and I think they make great gifts! There are SO many amazing holiday beauty exclusives out right now, it's hard to pick and choose which ones to get! All of the products I'm talking about below are products that I have actually tried and can genuinely recommend <3 xo
SKINCARE BEAUTY EXCLUSIVES
Skincare is something that I seriously value. I believe in investing in quality skincare products because your skin is your canvas. The following gift sets are full of products that I have tried and grown to love. I stand behind them 100% and know that you will love them, too!
Fresh is one of my favorite skincare brands. I always have their products as a part of my routine because they genuinely work! Needless to say, I was super excited to receive these two gift sets from them this holiday season! The Holiday Glow Skincare Set (c/o) includes their Soy Face Cleanser, Sugar Face Polish, and FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer.
The Soy Face Cleanser is a product I have raved about over and over again. It is a gentle cleanser with a fresh scent. It leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. Right now, I am using it morning and night and there's no other product I'd rather be using!
The Sugar Face Polish is a great exfoliant. It is superrrr fine which makes it safe to use on your face. It leaves my skin feeling soft and looking radiant. I use this 1-2 times a week, or when my skin has a mini breakout that needs to go!
The FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer is a lightweight moisturizer that leaves a sheer glow on the skin. I would say the look is similar to that of the Laura Mercier illuminating tinted moisturizer, but the actual consistency of the product is not as thick. it's great as a morning moisturizer when you don't feel like putting on a full face of makeup for the day!
This set is the ultimate lip care set (c/o). It would make the perfect gift for any lady on your list, even yourself!! It includes the Sugar Lip Polish, Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy, two Sugar Lip Treatments, and one Sugar Lip Cream Treatment. All of these products are amazing and especially perfect for winter!
I've been using the Sugar Lip Polish to exfoliate my lips before applying any color. I've been using the Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy at night before bed. When I wake up, my lip feels super smooth and hydrated! The Sugar Lip Treatments have been favorites of mine for a while now. The Tinted shade is Rose, which is almost always what I put on my lips every day. The other one is a clear treatment that can be used at any time! The Sugar Lip Cream is in the shade Buff and I love the texture. It's super moisturizing and more like a gloss than a lip balm.
This beauty exclusive set has made it's way to my wishlist! I order the cloud cream during the Sephora VIB Sale and have since used it every day and fallen in love. You can read my full review on it here. I am dying to try every product in this set because of how hydrating the moisturizer is alone! This would be another great gift for anyone on your list because winter temps can be harsh on the skin and no one likes dry skin!
HAIR CARE BEAUTY EXCLUSIVES
Although I value all of the beauty categories to some extent, hair care comes second to skincare. My hair is one of my favorite things about myself and it's so important to me to keep it healthy! Along with keeping my hair healthy, I love finding new products and tools to use when styling it. And when I find something I love, you bet I'm going to repurchase it and share it with you babes!
One of my ultimate favorite hair care products that I always have on hand is the Living proof Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo is the best I've come across. It actually cleans the hair and leaves it looking super fresh. This gift set includes a full sized dry shampoo and 3 invisibobble hair ties for only $22. The hair ties included are the best I've come across yet. They do not crease or pull the hair!
This curling iron was sent to me from Ulta as one of their beauty exclusives this holiday season. As soon as I received it, I took it out of the box and used it right away. Now, I've been using it every day since. I love the extended barrel because it's great for long hair. The temperature is adjustable and it heats up quickly. My curls last all day, and even into the second day without touch ups. I featured this curling iron in this tutorial for how I get my every day waves. For only $65, you can't beat it!
MAKEUP BEAUTY EXCLUSIVES
Last but not least, the makeup beauty exclusives! MAC is one of my favorite makeup brands, with NARS and Hourglass right behind. MAC always has the cutest holiday sets at great prices. I usually have at least one of their sets on my list each year!
MAC lipsticks are some of my favorites and I prefer cool tones on my skin, so this mini lipstick kit was a no brainer for me. I love that the shades are pretty neutral, with the exception of Cocktail Kiss which is a deeper color than I'm used to wearing (but it looks amazing on - wearing it in this outfit post). If you're buying these sets as gifts, it can be tough to choose when it comes to lip colors. The brush sets and shadow sets are great alternatives that will be sure to please!
I got this eye palette for Christmas last year and quickly fell in love. MAC has always been one of my favorite brands when it comes to eyeshadow. All of their shades are long lasting and go on super smooth. They are also easy to blend out. I love that the shades are cool toned because like I said above, they work great for my skin tone. This is a Nordstrom exclusive palette that sold out after Christmas last year, so make sure you grab it now in case it sells quick again!
As always, thanks for reading!
