I hope you’ve all been enjoying my recent Holiday Gift Guides? Have any of my recommendations for Beauty Gifts Under $100 or Beauty Gifts Under $50 helped to knock a few people off your Xmas list? Today, we’re talking stockings stuffers and I’ve got some great products to share with you! I personally love shopping for people’s stockings! Of course, that shouldn’t surprise you since I’m completely obsessed with toiletries and beauty products. I also like giving and receiving small things. To me, the thought that someone puts into a gift is way more important than its value and if your friends and family have been paying attention to you all year long then filling your stocking with some of your favourite necessities shouldn’t be difficult for them. I’ve rounded up my top 15 stocking stuffers for any beauty lover. This was no easy task considering that there are so many other amazing products that could have easily been included. Adding any of these items to your mother, daughter, sister or friend’s stocking is sure to make their day! Heck, I’m hoping that my husband reads this post so that I score some of these great options as well!
Bioderma Sensibio h2O – This micellar solution by Bioderma is a staple in my house and anyone with sensitive skin should absolutely give it a try! Did you know that a bottle of Sensibio is sold worldwide every 3 seconds? I go through the 500ml size 3-4 times a year, using it to remove my makeup and even clean my brushes. The smaller 100ml size is perfect for a stocking and great to have on hand for travel!
Vaseline Lip Therapy Holiday Ornament – How cute is this Holiday Ornament? It houses 3 “pint-sized” (7g each) tubs of Vaseline in “Original” and “Cocoa Butter” varieties.
Inecto Divine Shine Coconut Hair Oil – I recently discovered this lightweight finishing hair oil and immediately fell in love. It smells like a beach paradise, its made from Organic Coconuts & it makes my hair feel so luxurious. A pea-sized amount is all you need to get healthy, shiny, glossy hair! Available here.
Tweezerman Silver Chic Holiday Set – This handy duo combines Tweezerman’s classic eyelash curler (in a limited edition matte silver finish) and a mini slant tweezer. Two essentials that are sure to be put to good use for that special someone!
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Crayons – Know anyone who wants fuller, plumper lips? This S&G formula promises just that without the tingle of most plumping glosses. The high-pigment color stays put too!
Maybelline Holiday Kit – Maybelline released their first ever Holiday Kits this year! Available in 2 colour palettes, (“Gilded in Gold” & “Up in Smoke” with the former shown above) these eye, cheek and lip kits are a great gift for the beauty newbie or any Maybelline fan! They each contain four coordinated eye shadows, a eyeliner, a lip colour, a highlighter or bronzer depending on the palette and a powder blush.
LUSH Bubble Bars – Everyone loves LUSH bath bombs but I personally can’t get enough of their bubble bars! My two favourites this season are “The Magic of Christmas” (above left) and “Bar Humbug” (above right). One is packed with whole spices (i.e. star anise, cloves & cinnamon) and creates a sensory infusion in the bath every time you use it and the other is a liquorice scented bar that is anything but lacking in Christmas spirit! Both options create frothy bubbles, smell fantastic and provide the perfect way to unwind!
Burts Bees Lip Balm – Chapped lips don’t exactly treat themselves. This trio of lip balms contains beeswax, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, peppermint, rosemary and other oils that leave lips soft and chap-free.
L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray – This hairspray is a classic and if you haven’t tried it then all I can say is where have you been? It provides long, lasting hold and shine without the “crunch” that most hairsprays leave behind.
Philosophy Shampoo, Shower Gel & Body Wash – Philosophy sure knows the way to my heart! Not only is their bath & body range super decadent but this multi-functional must-have in “Vanilla Bean Nutmeg” delights the senses while leaving skin soft, moisturized & clean.
Avon mmm Candy! Body Mist – These body sprays are a guilt-free way for your loved one or little one to enjoy candy this year! They come in grape, cherry and berry flavours and are available through your local Avon Independent Sales Representative or online.
Quo by Orly Celebrity Collection Nail Polishes – Every beauty lover wants to find some nail polish in their stocking and this exclusive collection (only available at Shoppers Drug Mart) is a great choice. The shades are trendy yet holiday friendly and of course the quality is great!
Cover Girl Plumpify Mascara – This new mascara by Covergirl is a must-try ! I first shared it on my Instagram last week and have seriously been obsessing over it ever since. It does EXACTLY what it claims: plumps, volumizes, lifts… and it’s also waterproof!
KISS gel Fantasy Press-On Nails – Anytime I’m in a pinch or pressed for time, I turn to these! These “gel” nails come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and designs that are sure to impress even the most sceptic of press-on nail users. Look for them in the nail polish aisle and don’t be afraid to experiment!
got2B Rockin’ It Dry Shampoo – Dry shampoos are essential for anyone with an oily scalp or those who just want to skip a day or two of shampooing, but still want to work a killer hair style. This dry shampoo by got2B refreshes your hair and smells good too!
Have any stocking stuffer recommendation for me? I’d love to hear them!
