And today is the day!
Today I am going to simplify your holiday gift-giving, help you clean-up (not clean-out) your cosmetics bag, and get you ready for the holiday photo season. Promise.
I am beyond thrilled to share the new Beautycounter Holiday Collections with you all. From skin care to cosmetics, to gifts under $50, to brand new, never before seen colors and combos – there is something in this holiday haul for everyone.
Of course, I got my hands on these products about a month ago, so I’ve had some time to test them out, discover some new favorites and make my holiday gift list. Chances are, if you are someone receiving a gift from me this holiday season, Beautycounter will be at least a part of your gift. Teachers, babysitters, friends, family, housekeepers, coaches, assistants, employees – I’ve hand selected the perfect gift for each of them. I mean everyone needs to wash their face – right?
These beautiful, non-toxic personal care products make the perfect gift for everyone. And if you are more into “glam” we have a slew of gorgeous color options for you as well.
Each set comes packaged in a beautiful gift box and makes a swoon-worthy gift all on its own, Stick on a bow and voila – you are done. There is a gift for every price point, ranging from $28 – $88.
My Favorite Things:
A few of my absolute favorites are:
Glow & Go Mini Oils: A sampling of our three potent treatment facial oils: Brightening Facial Oil, Plumping Facial Oil and Balancing Facial Oil in try-me, take-anywhere sizes. This set is the perfect introduction to facial oils – especially for those of you still skeptical about oil on your face.
Clean Slate Charcoal Duo: This set was a best-seller last year and for good reason. Our best-selling charcoal cleaning bar detoxifies skin without drying it out and our balancing facial mask helps absorb oil and unclog pores – leading to a smoother, clearer, softer complexion. ($48)
Holiday Hand Cream Trio: The same luxurious hand creams with non-toxic ingredients that our customers love in ne, limited edition scents: Lavender & Vanilla, Ylang & Mandarin and Citrus and Chamomile. I seriously can’t pick a favorite. ($30)
Winter Jewels Palette: This jewel-toned color collection is perfect for holidays. Featuring 11 all new shades for your entire face – 8 eye-shadows, 1 eyeliner, 2 highlighters and a removable mirror is the perfect palette for any occasion and all your holiday travel. ($58)
Ultimate Nudes Eye Shadow Palette: The ultimate indulgent gift for your bestie (or yourself). This palette features 18 all new neutral shades in a trifecta of finishes – satin, metallic and matte – to complement every skin tone. Don’t miss your chance to score this limited-edition palette of the most wearable shades. ($88)
Color Intense Lip Set: One of the first Beautycounter products I fell in love with was the lip sheers – a sheer, buildable lipstick that goes on smooth and silky and moisturizes lips. So I was so excited to meet these 5 bold new lip colors with the peppermint flavor. And I was not disappointed. This lip set is perfect for holiday parties and beyond. ($88)
I also love to switch up the sets and mix and match colors. Last year I stocked up on the lip gloss sets and then broke them up and combined a pretty lip gloss, with a lip conditioner, hand cream and a cosmetics bag for a sweet little gift collection. Sometimes I also threw in a personalized item – like a gift card, note cards or piece of jewelry and I had the perfect gift for everyone on my list. This DIY gift set is not just for the holidays either (see below).
You could also buy a mini oil gift set, a soap set and a face mask set and take one item from each set to create an easy gift set that features three different Beautycounter products. Although these sets are ready-to-go as packaged, why not break them up and create unique gifts for the people you love.
I also like to use the holiday collections to stock my gift closet. Although the boxes are red, and beautiful for the holidays, they are NOT holiday branded. I like to think of our red boxes as becoming as ubiquitous as Tiffany blue boxes. (A girl can dream . . . .) These limited-time only collections make great gifts any time throughout the year. I almost always have a few baby collections (my standard new baby gift), kids’ collection, hand creams and make-up palettes on hand for easy gifting all year long. Whether you need a hostess gift, birthday present or a little something “just because” – our gift sets are the perfect choice.
Of course, this is also a great time to clean-up your own make-up bag. I know the holidays are supposed to be all about giving to others – but research shows that everyone does a lot of personal shopping on black Friday. So, if you are going to treat yourself this holiday season, why not do something that is good for you too. You can read all about Why I Made the Switch to Safer here, but Beautycounter is all about getting safer products into the hands of everyone. Products that are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and which promote a healthy lifestyle because “we all deserve better.”
So why not up your skin care game with some of these beautiful sets. There’s really no better time to start taking care of your skin than now. Especially during this season of never-ending photo ops. From formal family portraits, to impromptu selfies by the tree we all want to look our best for the holidays. So why not treat yourself to a some new skin care or cosmetics to help you look and feel your best.
In addition to all these amazing holiday gift sets, Beautycounter has also recently released a slew of new products, inlacing our Countermatch collection and this amazing new Instant Eye Makeup Remover. This dual-phase formula uses natural oils to completely erase long-wear and waterproof make-up while keeping the sensitive skin around eyes soft and moisturized. This stuff is the BOMB! And I am giving away a free bottle to anyone who places a $100 order before November 15th.
So don’t delay. Shop today at beautycounter.com to make sure your favorite sets are still available and get your FREE Instant Eye Makeup Remover. Plus, once that holiday shopping is done there is more time to party!
