Part of me feels a little crazy to be posting about the holidays, and the other part of me is SO excited! Like most of us, I absolutely adore this time of year. For whatever reason, time seems to slow down and speed up at the same time. I find myself less stressed out, more present and overall, happier and more grateful for everything in my life.
It’s just the best, isn’t it?!
One thing that always stresses me out is shopping though. It gets crazy and hectic and because I’m me, I always wait until the very end and I’m usually scrambling around.
So, two things!
One, I’d love for you to fill out this survey for me! It basically asks some general questions on who and what you’re shopping for this year so that I can best tailor my content this holiday for YOU! Plus, some general questions that will help shape my content for the next year as well.
This is so incredibly helpful for me in creating content that you guys want, so I thank you in advance for taking the time to help me help you!
And, two! Beautycounter’s Holiday Collection just launched! I got a sneak peek of into it about a month ago and have several of the sets at home and they’re so cute! Most of them this year are actually under $50, which is a pretty perfect price range if you ask me.
They make for great gifts for friends, sisters, moms, teens, girlfriends or even yourself! You can also grab a few sets and then break them apart into more smaller gifts. I’m planning on doing this for Owen’s teachers this year. It’s the perfect little something without spending too much.
Why Skincare is a Great Gift
People want skincare and beauty products, but they don’t want to buy it for themselves. It can be expensive and sometimes feels like a luxury. Also, my sisters and mom always tell me that they don’t really need more stuff. I very much feel that sentiment.
So, getting something that’s special, and that they might not buy for themselves is such a luxurious treat! Plus, they’ll actually use it so it doesn’t just sit forgotten on the shelf or in a drawer.
Best Clean Beauty Sets Under $50
Okay, it was hard to pick favorites, but since I’ve tried so many of these, I wanted to give you my top favorites under $50 here.
This is one of my favorites! It’s such a great way to test out the different facial oils for such a great price. These also make for great gifts—you can break them up and pair with a hand cream or body butter for a fun, mixed gift! This set is only $34!
I’m so excited about this one! The lip polish smells insane. If you love our lip balm, then you’ll love this! There’s a balm in a stick form which I’m so excited about and hoping it becomes part of the normal collection! This set is $49.
When I went to the training back in early September, they gave us 2 of these and I’ve been using them every single every night. You can use them all over, but I personally love them for on my hands, feet and elbows because they’re so hydrating. These also smell sooooo good! I brought one of these in my carry-on for dry hands on the plane! This set is $49 and again, great to break into multiple gifts!
The day my mom got here, we went into the bathroom, pulled out our palettes and started playing. Turns out she’s really good at eye makeup, I’m not so much, but got a good lesson. This palette is so pretty and great for holiday events and date nights. This one is $36.
I love this as a stocking stuffer. You can break it into 3 and give it to multiple people as a nice little gift, or keep one in all your bags for dry winter hands. The scents are all so lovely! This set is only $34!
More Skincare & Beauty Sets
These are not under $50, but still great prices and something a little extra special for those people in your life that you want to spend a little more on!
I LOVE this set and I’m so happy they brought it back. And, it has a new product! The cleansing stick, which is sort of like the cleansing balm in stick form, but a slightly different formula. You just rub it all over your face, add some water and it turns into a nice milky cleanser.
If you love the cleansing balm already, this is a great little gift for yourself. It’s much larger than the typical one and it ends up breaking down to be such a steal!
This set comes with a full-size Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye Cream and Under Eye patches (I snagged a couple for our long haul flights!).
So many good stuff to grab today and have half (or more) of your holiday shopping done! I’m planning on hosting a few fun holiday events in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for announcements on that!
