1. Nail Pad

Nailpad is a portable nail polish station, with an integrated polish pot holder. Designed to solve a variety of at-home and on-the-go nail-painting dilemmas, Nailpad provides a flat and stable surface, to help ensure an easy and smooth nail polish application, every time. The Nailpad folds neatly in half, so it can be used as a storage device for manicure and pedicure tools. It comes complete with a fold-out fin that can be placed between the knees to keep your hand and polish steady for a smooth finish.

There is also an integrated polish holder to keep your nail polish bottle upright and prevent unwanted spills and staining. Nailpad is fast becoming a must-have beauty tool and an affordable stay-at-home luxury at a time when salon visits are currently not possible. This will be a perfect beauty gift to give a loved one, especially those that love to do their nails and don’t want to leave a mess of polish behind on the furniture.

2. Mario Badescu The Facial Spray Collection

Mario Badescu limited-edition collection comes with 4 (2 oz) bottles, including, Rose Lavender, Green Tea, and Orange Blossom.  Keep yourself refreshed by spritzing your face once every hour.  Marion Badescu spray bottles are used to keep your face refreshed, particularly its staple spray Rosewater. 

Also, the collection is used for soothing your skin, uplifting your mood, giving you some GLOW, and getting some rejuvenation.  It feels nice and cool when you spray it on your face. It smells so good too, consisting of botanicals and herbs.  I also use it in the morning to set my makeup sometimes. 

You can use the Orange Blossom in the morning to wake up that sleepy skin.  It’s great for when it’s a warm day outside and it gives you a quick cool down. It is also good to help refresh your make-up midday.  

3. The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter

The Body Shop Coconut body butter is so velvety smooth. And it smells really good. The Body Shop offers a variety of different scents, but the Coconut Butter is my favorite. However, the Shea Butter is a close second. It helps keep my skin smooth and from drying out.  Its consistency is thicker than regular lotion so you don’t have to use a lot. A little goes a long way.

Did I say how good it smells? LOL…It’ll keep you smelling like coconuts for hours. The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter literally will keep your skin hydrated for up to 48 hours. It smells glorious and it keeps you hydrated. This is a perfect beauty gift of hydration. Sounds like a win-win.  

4. Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit Gift Set 

The Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes kit for pampering hands and toes is very popular.  It comes with 6 travel size products 2 hand creams, foot cream, cuticle cream, hand salve, and lip balm. You or your loved one would get a chance to sample a little bit of everything. This kit will be a great addition to add to your beauty collection for some pampering. 

I’ve purchased the kit a few times. I’ve purchased this for myself and also for friends for the holidays.  The good thing about this product is that it’s made with natural ingredients.  The Tips and Toes kit will keep your skin silky smooth, hydrated, especially during the winter, and is another perfect gift for the holidays. 

5. Jade Roller

OMG, I love my Jade Roller. I use it at night and it is cool when you roll it on your face, but it feels so good. A RoselynBoutique Jade Roller is used to increase the circulation of blood flow in your face. It helps depuff your eyes and stimulates lymphatic drainage in your face. I also use it after I put on serum on my face like the Vitamin C by Pixi, because it will help the product go deeper into my skin. 

Also, the Jade Roller is also a massager and helps to relieve muscle tension. It helps calm me down at night while getting ready for bed, it’s just soothing. It comes in a Jade stone or you could get the Rose Quartz. And the gemstones are natural and both have organic powers.

You can use it all over your face, eyes, cheeks, and your neck. The RoselynBoutique Jade Roller is what I have and it comes with a Gua Sha Set as well. This will be a perfect gift for your girlfriend or friend. If you buy now, Amazon is offering an extra 5% off coupon to apply to this product. The Jade Roller is a tool that you should add to your beauty collection or gift it to a friend. Perfect for the holidays.

  • Tip: Put it in the refrigerator before use and it’ll give extra power to depuffs those eyes in the morning.

6. Silicone Face Cleanser 

The Silicone Face cleanser is a great alternative if you don’t want to spend that much on a cleansing tool. I actually use the Clarisonic cleansing brush on my face. However, I bought the Silicone Face Cleanser for my daughter because she doesn’t have enough money to buy the more expensive brand…LOL.  She ain’t ready for that yet. Anyway, I started buying her the different less expensive skin tools for years (she’s 15 now) because she didn’t wash her face thoroughly without it. So now that she has the Silicone Face Cleanser, she is getting herself a deeper clean. And her face is flawless. I wish my face was glowing like that when I was a teenager.

Anyway, it is super soft and has bristles on the pad. It has a handle on it that makes it so easy to use. Sometimes I take these on the go while traveling, for myself so I don’t have to take up too much space in my cosmetics bag because it is so compact.

7. Pixi Glow Tonic 

I love using Pixi products, especially the Glow Tonic. First, the Glow Tonic is an exfoliating toner that is made of 5% Glycolic Acid.  Which is good for treating acne and brightening the skin for a more even tone.  Second, the toner smells good.  It doesn’t have a strong odor like some other products that will make you feel nauseous. It has a slight tingling sensation, which is good, that means it’s working.  Don’t worry your face will not be on fire, it is an alcohol-free product. 

Use the Pixi Glow Tonic after you’ve washed your face because it just gives you an even deeper clean by helping to reduce enlarged pores and have smoother looking skin due to cell regeneration. You can use the Tonic in the morning or at night, but in my skincare regime, I use this 3 times a week mostly at night. 

8. Pixi Beauty Skintreats Glow Tonic Serum- To get that extra glow

After I use my Pixi Glow Tonic, I then follow it up with this Pixie Glycolic Serum.  This Serum helps to renew the skin by revealing a more even tone skin.  It’s more concentrated than the toner, as it contains 10% glycolic acid. I like it because when I wake up in the morning my skin is smoother and my dark spots start to fade.  And it leaves me with a natural glow.

The Pixi Glow Tonic Serum contains Vitamin A, C, & E.  All of these vitamins combined to show smoother even-toned skin and reduces the look of fine lines. To help the Glow Tonic Serum get deeper into my skin, I use the Jade Roller after applying.

9. Clarisonic Facial Brush

So let me tell you. This Clarisonic Facial Cleansing Device has changed my life. I’ve always suffered from stubborn acne since I was a child, but once I bought this powerful cleansing brush my skin started to clear up drastically. The brush head spins to help penetrate the skin for a deeper clean. This is way better than what your hands alone could ever do.

Also, the Clarisonic Mia Fit is on a pulsing T-timer so it lets you know how long to stay on your forehead or cheeks. Then it’ll pulse 2 times to let you know to move to the other part of your face. I mean this is brilliant.  The Mia Fit also has 2 speeds delicate and power cleansing depending on your needs.  You can choose from several types of brush heads like sensitive, deep pore cleansing, etc.     

10. Mario Badescu Acne Starter Regimen Kit

This Mario Badescu Acne Starter Regimen Kit contains the Acne Facial Cleanser, Special Cucumber Lotion, Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17, Drying Mask and a sample of its Drying Cream. The Acne Kit is used to fight stubborn acne and clearing the skin. I really like the Drying Cream too it contains Zinc Oxide and Sulfur, to spot treat your under the surface blemishes. Just apply to the bumps and blend it in, and it’ll diminish the appearance of that pimple-like magic.

This Acne Kit is great for those that want to try acne products, but don’t want to worry about buying all these different products separately. This kit is like a trial size to use and test out. Then if you like the products you can just go and buy the bigger bottles without worries of if you are wasting your money or not. Mario Badescu products are of good quality and they use gentle formulas that are good for all skin types.  

11. The Ritual of Sakura Body Scrub

The Ritual of Sakura Body Scrub is one of the best body scrubs I ever had. The first time I bought this scrub was at Sephora in Paris.  But you don’t have to go all the way to Paris to purchase. You can order this body scrub on Amazon. The Sakura Body Scrub ingredients include organic rice milk and cherry blossom and it feels and smells amazing. 

While in the shower, I will inhale the Japanese Cherry blossom aroma and it makes me feel so relaxed. It feels so good on my skin and makes it smoother, and my skin is well nourished because of the oils that are blended in.  After using this, there is no need to reach over for that bottle of lotion, this will keep your skin hydrated for hours.  The Ritual of Sakura Body Scrub will be a perfect beauty gift for you, a friend, or your girlfriend. 

12. Pixi Vitamin-C Caviar Balm

The Vitamin-C Caviar Balm is a facial moisturizer and leave-on mask, which is designed to hydrate the skin while brightening.  It also boosts collagen production with its antioxidant power. It’s lightweight and it feels great when applying to my skin. The Balm is so smooth and a little goes a long way.  I use this about twice a week to help with old stubborn acne scars. So far it has helped to fade some of the dark spots. The smell is delightful too. Oh, and don’t forget to use that Jade Roller after applying this Pixi Vitamin-C Caviar Serum.

13. Hair Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush

Give her the gift of an awesome hair day. This Hair Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush will help her reduce her stress after a long day.  It’ll give your hair and scalp a deeper clean, and prevent her from having to use your nails and scratching too hard. It’s also good for getting the blood circulating on your scalp, which helps stimulate hair growth.  The Hair Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush can be used on all hair types and the soft bristles are perfect for sensitive scalps.  

14. Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Gift Set 

Give her the gift of a spa day for pampering her hands at home. The Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Gift Set comes with 3 Hand Creams plus 1 pair of Gloves, Almond Milk Hand Cream, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream.  It is packed in a cute organza satchel, ready to be gifted or put in a stocking stuffer. 

Burt’s Bees products are made with natural ingredients to boost and reveal soft skin. The hand creams are made with almond oil, botanical oils, and vitamin E. Almond oil is a wonderful ingredient to keep your skin moisturized, and vitamin E is good for collagen production. All of these ingredients combined will have those tired, dry hands well moisturized while tightening and smoothing the skin, and help prevent cracked cuticles and protect the nails. So what are you waiting for? Go check out this amazing Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Gift Set today.

15. Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub 

The Botanical Exfoliating Scrub helps to reveal a newer much radiant skin looking skin. It’s not harsh, it’s gentle on the skin but the natural beads are enough to get the job done. It actually contains ground Ecuadorian ivory palm seeds.  Sounds fancy right?  Other ingredients are ginger, green tea, ginkgo, aloe, and coconut.  And this one smells pretty good too, not a strong intoxicating aroma. 

I use the Botanical Exfoliating Scrub after I cleanse my face. It also feels really good too. I use this facial scrub 2-3 times a week to get rid of dead skin cells. I love Mario Badescu products, it’s worth looking into his entire line of skincare beauty products.
