The holiday season is most definitely upon us. Yesterday Kelly was actually playing Christmas music while she waited for her friends to come over. It is way too early for that nonsense, in my humble opinion, but she was having a bunch of girls over for a pre-dance party so I just kind of let her do her thing.
Traditionally, we don’t listen to Christmas music until after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Although in recent years I may have started decorating a little bit early than that and Christmas carols are a must while putting up holiday decorations. But regardless, November 1st is too early for Christmas tunes.
November 1st is not too early, however, to begin your holiday shopping. And I am here today to make the job just a wee bit easier. I wrote earlier about how excited I was to unbox Beautycounter’s latests holiday collection, and let me tell you ladies, I was not disappointed.
Beautycounter has totally outdone themselves this year! There are twenty, count them twenty, brand new limited edition gift sets available for purchase this holiday season. They range in price from $30 to $89 and feature new colors, as well as brand new skin care and body care products and even new, natural scents. And many of those sets, including some of the $30 ones, can even be broken apart into mutliple gifts, giving you maximum bang for your buck.
There is definitely something for everyone in this collection. And you can feel good knowing you are giving the gift of safer skincare to someone you love.
While I honestly love all the amazing options the home office has put together for us to sell this winter, I am going to share some of my favorite picks from the 2018 holiday collection. To see the entire collection, click here.
Okay, in no particular order here are my top 10 Beautycounter Holiday gifts this year.
I’m going to go ahead and start with one of my favorite gifts on the line: the Glow & Go Mini Oils. This popular set contains our best-selling facial oil formulas in special take-anywhere size. These adorable little oils make the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone craving a gorgeous natural glow that helps brighten, plump and balance skin. And these lightweight oils are a great way to experiment with face oils for those of you still nervous about putting oil on your face. The set includes the Allure “Best of Beauty” Award Winner No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil, a citrus-scented facial oil, with vitamin C, that quickly absorbs and penetrates to awaken skin and boost radiance; the No. 2 Plumping Facial Oil, made with fragrant jasmine oil and omega-rich argan oil, that is perfect for anyone concerned with dry skin, loss of elasticity and/or fine lines.; and our No. 3 Balancing Facial Oil, a luxurious, non-greasy formula, with meadowfoam seed oil and argan oil that helps to restore calm and clarity to all skin types. Keep the gift together for one amazing gift, or break it up for three tiny, indulgent gifts.
And as our Shop One, Share One gift set, a little glow goes a long way. For every Glow & Go Mini Oils set purchased this holiday, Beautycounter will donate one set to a patient undergoing cancer treatment at UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Holiday Hand Cream Trio ($30)
Another best-selling Beautycounter gift set that is perfect for co-workers, teachers, hostesses and friends. The Holiday Hand Cream Trio delivers an instant boost of moisture that absorbs quickly for a non-greasy finish. Luxurious yet lightweight, the all-new formula is enriched with shea butter and jojoba oil to deliver rich hydration in three limited-edition scents: Lavender, Petal and Monoi. I love the scents of all three hand creams. I also love that this is a gorgeous gift set when all three hand creams are gifted together; but, it’s also perfect for breaking into three unique gifts.
Mini Lipgloss Vault ($89)
This essential 10-piece mini lipgloss collection has a shade to suit every look, including both limited-edition shades and customer favorites. Each gloss instantly delivers sheer color in shimmering and pearlescent finishes for utmost versatility—plus conditioning moisture and high-impact shine, all with no stickiness and a whisper of fresh peppermint. This gift values at $126 can easily be broken up and gifted to several of your besties.
If lipstick is more your thing, you will love the Mini Color Intense Lipstick Vault. This limited edition gift valued at $100 contains eight universally flattering long-wearing shades, including five brand new limited-edition hues ranging from nudes and pinks to berries and reds – ensuring you have the perfect option for virtually any occasion. Each mini lipstick delivers a smooth satin finish, a rich color payoff and a hint of fresh peppermint, and is the perfect size to pop into your tiniest clutch. Of course, if you’ve got lots of lipstick lovers on your gift list you could also break this gift apart into 8 glamour gifts (or maybe 7 and keep your favorite color for yourself).
Transforming Duo ($30)
Another bargain gift that has quickly become one of the most popular gifts on the line as everyone is curious to see what the transforming duo will look on them. This universally flattering Transforming Lip Tint instantly delivers the ideal shade of sheer, customized pink color and the Crystal Gloss provides high-impact shine for a flawless finish. Both are infused with Beautycounter’s signature sophisticated hint of natural vanilla.
Shimmer & Shine Body Set ($59)
You guys, I have gifted so many of these gift sets. In fact, if you are on my gift list this year there is a good chance you will be getting one again. And then I buy even more to stock up for myself and to use as gifts throughout the year. This luxurious set includes three of my favorite beauty counter products. I love that this is a $75 value for only $59. I adore the Sugar Scrub in Lemongrass, which makes my shower feel like a spa, and the Body Butter in Citrus Mimosa, a fast-absorbing, non-greasy body cream that instantly drenches dry skin with nourishing oils and butters. And the Glow Shimmer Oil provides the perfect finishing touch for holiday parties. It absorbs instantly leaving a subtle bronze shimmer in even the darkest of winter months.
The Instant Awakening Trio, a $134 value, is a must-have for revealing radiant skin, perking up tired eyes and creating an all-over glowing complexion. It includes my favorite Overnight Resurfacing Peel, our brand new Instant Glow Illuminating Cream and 4 Eye Revive Cooling Masks that offer soothing hydration to help reduce puffiness and plump tired skin.
This limited-edition palette features 18 long-wearing shades designed to flatter all skin tones and makes the perfect gift for the beauty obsessed or the teen in your life. This versatile collection of wearable warm and cool shades offers a variety of matte, satin and shimmer finishes, each with a luxuriously smooth texture from cocoa seed butter. Comes in an exclusive, gold-patterned compact with a removable mirror and double-ended brush.
I absolutely love the decadent Monoi fragrance and the gentle cleansing and deep moisturizing of this hydrating body bar and melting body balm that are the perfect antidote to dull, dry winter skin.
We’ve also got all the men on your list covered with our the highly-anticipate preview of our best-selling Counterman Gift Set. This holiday season, give him an exclusive preview of the all-new Counterman collection.
