To all the gals who need more “me” time, this one’s for you. Behind every successful woman is a good skincare routine. When buying skincare as gifts, people are normally timid because it’s so personal. I’m here to tell you to think otherwise. Everybody appreciates good skincare and some people wouldn’t normally splurge on themselves. Anything on this list is lavish, luxurious and lowkey what every lady wants – even men because skincare doesn’t discriminate. Cleanser and body lotion may seem quotidian, but let’s be real, she’ll make that Aroma Associates Bath Oil last the whole year.

Prevention is the best policy when it comes to skincare. A silky sunscreen, like this Tatcha one, is the key to young, bright skin. A broad spectrum SPF prevents sunspots, protects scars and thwarts wrinkles before they need be on your face. Don’t forget your neck and the tops of your hands, which are the first to reveal signs of aging because of constant sun exposure. I can’t stress this enough so here’s a great article to read up on http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/04/health/sunscreen-aging/. Tatcha’s skincare was influenced by the beauty secrets from a geisha and made with time-tested ingredients from ancient Japan. The brand’s philosophy of less is more focuses on treating your skin instead of hiding it. Any women of any age would appreciate elegant skincare, especially this pore-perfecting and priming sunscreen.
Sheet masks are trending over Instagram and enjoyed by a plethora of it-girls and celebrities. All for good reason. Sheet masks are great for busy women, students, moms, multitaskers etc. They’re slso really good for gifting your quirky or impatient friend gal pal because they’re hella fun and convenient. These Dr. Jart ones come drenched in a super potent and goopy serum that immediately calms inflamed and irritated skin.
For your diamond girl, go for the Naturabliss Diamond White Glowing Mask. This illuminating mask will compliment her illuminating personality by diminishing dark spots and improving skin elasticity. Made with opulent ingredients, this tube promises plump and bright skin. Put this under her tree for major brownie points.
If you’re feeling uber spendy, you can’t go wrong with the SK-II gift set or Crème de la Mer. Made with Pitera extracts, SK-II’s treatment essence gently exfoliates and renews skin while La Mer hydrates and calms with it’s patented use of spring water.
Some budget friendly choices include the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, Glossier’s Balm Dot Com and Lauren Napier Cleansing Wipes. I guarantee at least one of these is already on her list. Laneige’s cult hydrating mask is coveted by women everywhere, Glossier’s multiuse balm is seriously the bomb, and Lauren Napier’s cleansing wipes are anything but ordinary.
