You know what gets me into the Christmas vibe faster than a Michael Buble’s Christmas album? Well, Christmas shopping of course! In case you’ve somehow missed it, it’s now officially December, snow should be tumbling (if you’re lucky enough) or at lease houses or shopping malls should be beaming with Christmas decorations and you should be busy with some gift wrapping.
Christmas shopping is often a difficult job – as I’ve learn after numerous Secret Santa last minute dash. It’s actually very hard to find the perfect Christmas gift, this is especially true if you don’t know the person too well (especially the case for my Secret Santa/Kris Kringle). So, if you’re someone like me who traditionally needs some help with gift ideas then I might just have the blog for you. Unlike previous years, I actually got my Christmas gifts sorted out already… this year, I’m gifting the gift of year of gifting glowing, youth skin aka SKINCARE!
So let’s just jump into some gift ideas that I wouldn’t mind receiving myself 😉
Innisfree is a brand that I haven’t got much first hand experience with, mostly because it doesn’t sit too well with my oily-combo skin. However, my sister (with dry skin) loves Innisfree, in particular the Innisfree’s Green Tea Seed Serum. I’ve seen the serum help transform her dry flaky skin to a smooth and supple canvas within weeks! This Christmas set is definitely ideal for our dry skin pals. The packaging is dead gorgeous and the set gives them a ‘taste’ of everything. The set comes with the Innisfree’s Green Tea Cleansing Foam (30mL), Innisfree’s The Green tea Seed Serum (80mL) and Innisfree’s The Green Tea Seed Cream(20mL) – pretty much a full basic skincare routine.
I’m going to sound like a broken record, but here goes – Sulwhasoo is honestly my favourite Korean skincare brand (nothing new HAHA)! They are know for they ‘hanbang’ skincare products that are soothing and healing to the skin. This Christmas special gift set contains three of their popular facial masks – The Radiance Energy Mask (30mL) ,Overnight Vitalizing Mask (50ml) and Clarifying Mask (50mL). Sulwhasoo is a high-end Korean Skincare brand so expect some wallet-damage but trust me you’re paying for what you get! Probably a great gift for that someone who always goes above and beyond for you or ones who’ve shouted you too many coffees to count?
Kiehl’s was actually my first ever Skincare brand – the brand focuses of apothecary type products. In other words, their products are simple and effectively without all those unnecessary frills and added fragrances. I particularly enjoy their eye cream and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, plus their Ultimate Strength Hand Salve isn’t too bad either. I found they this pretty cute ‘Disney x Kiehl’s Hydration Essentials’ set that they have in celebration of the coming Christmas season. The Kit includes the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (30ml), Ultra Facial Cleanser (2.5oz), Ultra Facial Cream (7ml), Lip Balm #1 and the Crème de Corps (2.5oz) at an affordable A $36 price tag! This would be perfect for those new to skincare and just wanted to test out the products before having the full commitment of a full sized product.
Remember the time when all of Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil was flying off the shelves worldwide because The Duchess of Cambridge was said to love it during her pregnancy? Well if it’s good enough for Katherine it’s good enough for us! 😛 This Trilogy Rosehip Radiance Botanical Beauties set is honestly the full packaging!It comes with Trilogy’s Cream Cleanser (30mL), Rosehip Oil Antioxdiant+ (30mL) and Rosapene™ Radiance Serum(30mL). Why not gift the gift of glowing skin this Christmas?
So there you have it, basically my Christmas shopping list in a blog! 😉
Enjoy your Christmas shopping my Wonderlandians!
