Figuring out what to buy for your family and friends for the holiday season is not easy. It is tempting to buy a generic gift and cross everyone off your list. But presents are appreciated more when you've put in an effort and bought something the recipient will love and use. But if you have a comprehensive network of friends, this can be a tedious task and a tad overwhelming!
Want in on a secret? The trick is to assign a general theme to each person based on their interests and consider gifts (read skincare) that fall in that category.
Don't worry, we have your back. There are numerous ways you can tailor a gift, especially for your friends, based on their personality type. Read ahead to see what beauty products you can buy for every personality in your friend group.
For the Minimalist or Clean Beauty Enthusiast
For your minimalist friend, less is always more. They like to indulge in products that have multi-use and benefits, then hoard products or have a vanity full of skincare. With that in mind, we think the Glow’rious Routine Bundle Pack is the way to go!
The bundle includes three staples to minimalistic skincare: the 2-in-1 Radiance exfoliating mask, the Glow'rious Resurfacing Serum and the Illuminating Daily Moisturizer.
The exfoliating mask scrubs dead skin cells and restores the skin's radiance with its fruit and enzyme-driven powder. The resurfacing serum is an effective skin hydrant. It encourages cellular turnover and skin renewal. And lastly, the Illuminating Daily Moisturizer is anti-ageing and remedies dull skin by revealing radiance and luminosity. Jacked up on vitamin C (Arbutin, Licorice Root Extract), this crème is perfect for an evening out skin tone, restoring uniformity and providing a youthful glow to your face.
For The One with Expensive Taste
Shopping for the holidays is a stressful task. Add in a friend with an expensive taste, and you're in a tizzy. It can get quite tricky fitting them into your budget. We recommend The Super-Glow Trio by Beautytech Cosmetics is rich and still under $100! The bundle contains their best-selling Skin Energy Probiotic Serum, the Glow Food Peptide Mist and the Rose & Shine Antimicrobial Makeup Brush.
The Skin Energy Serum is essential in maintaining the skin's pH balance. Likewise, the Glow Food Mist is loaded with probiotics, peptides, collagen and more. Its anti-ageing properties reduce fine lines, rebuild skin elasticity, plump and firm your skin and increase its radiance. The Rose and Shine brush have cutting-edge technology that keeps bacteria, mould, fungus or yeast from attaching to its hairs or handle. Your expensive friend will enjoy this gift as this skincare trio will leave them glowing, inside and out.
For the Maximalist
Unlike your minimalist friend, this one needs it all. Your maximalist friend is big on aesthetics, and they embrace the bold. Nothing speaks boldly quite like Fenty Beauty products. Their Fenty Skin Vault 5-Piece Am + Pm Skincare Essentials fits the bill for your maximalist friend. It contains the Total Cleans'r Makeup-Removing Cleanser and the Fat Water Niacinamide Pore-Refining Toner Serum, both with Barbados Cherry. The Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Sunscreen (SPF 30), the Instant Reset Brightening Overnight Recovery Gel-Cream With Niacinamide and Kalahari Melon Oil and the Flash Nap Instant Revival Priming Eye Gel-Cream With Green Tea and Persian Silk Tree. This complete skincare is perfect for late nights and early mornings. It brightens, diminishes pores and dark spots, targets fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces dark circles and puffiness.
For the Mover and Shaker or Traveller
The one friend that is always on the go, whether it's a weekend spent hiking or travelling across the globe in a plane. The Minis by Beneath Your Mask is the ideal skincare and beautiful gift for the traveller. The minis include a complete line of travel-size products. Heal Whipped Skin Soufflé, Polish Detoxifying Body Scrub, Indulge Total Body Elixir, Nourish Hair Serum and Illuminate Clarifying Face Mask. These products come with a Beneath Your Mask cosmetic case, perfect for travel or everyday use. What's more, it's eco-friendly, cruelty-free and vegan!
For the Humanitarian
There are plenty of places that donate to various causes around the world when a product is purchased from them. For your humanitarian friend, it would be better to know and donate on their behalf for a cause that holds value for them. The Glow'rious Routine is a Canada-based, cruelty-free company that has partnered with One Tree Planted. We donate one tree for every product we sell. We believe that it is our responsibility to give back to Mother Nature by living sustainably and doing our part for the environment. Visit our website for more information on this cause.
