Hello loves! I seriously can’t believe how fast this month is flying. Actually, where did the year go? I just got around to putting up my Christmas tree today which is about 2-3 weeks later than when I usually do it, so already I feel so behind. The good thing is that I have a pretty solid idea of what I’m getting everyone on my list this year so things should go pretty smoothly once I get my a*! in gear. For those ladies on your list who prefer something a little more special (but would never purchase a beauty gift for themselves), there are some really amazing sets out this year that I would recommend.
Below, I’ve rounded up my top 6 beauty gifts under $100. From cosmetics to skincare to something for the home and more, these options are all MomsMakeupStash approved and are sure to be a hit this Holiday season! For those of you looking to spend a little less on that special friend or family member, don’t worry, I have similar round-ups planned for Gifts Under $50 and Stocking Stuffers coming soon. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these special beauty gifts, hand-picked by yours truly!
Philosophy Glowing Days Ahead Holiday Gift Set ($98 CAD)
Who doesn’t want beautiful, glowing skin? This set by Philosophy has everything for the man/woman on your list who has always wanted to try luxe skin care but didn’t know where to start? It includes an assortment of Philosophy’s most popular moisturizers and cleansers (i.e. Hope in a Jar, Time in a Bottle) as well as two micro delivery peels. Available at The Bay or Sephora in Canada as well as Ulta chains in the USA.
Saje Wellness Aroma Gem ($84.95 CAD)
With a neublizer on each floor, their essential oils always brewing in my home and their remedy rollers tucked away in my handbag, Saje has easily become one of my 2015 obsessions! Whether I’m having trouble sleeping, am feeling congested or have a splitting headache, I can always rely on Saje. If you or the person you are buying for this year is new to the brand, I’d recommend investing in a neublizer first….this set retails at $85 and is the perfect opportunity to get started (the neublizer included retails for $70 on its own). Not only is this a chic addition to any home, but it also includes 2 festive diffuser blends, which would otherwise need to be purchased separately. Love this! #SajeEssentials ~
MAC Enchanted Eve Brush Kit – Essentials ($63 CAD)
I love, love, love MAC brushes. They are great quality but when purchased separately they can cost you a pretty penny. A great investment in my opinion, but for people who want to start small or save some serious coin, MAC’s 2015 Enchanted Holiday Collection has two brush kits available – a basic set & “the essentials” set which includes their angled contour, blush brush, a blending, shading and pencil brush…all in special packaging and housed in a ribbed clutch. Valued at $173 CAD, picking up this set at $63 CAD is a no brainer!!
fresh Sugar Lip Delight ($65 CAD)
Give your loved ones’ lips something to smile about! These fresh lip treatments contain SPF 15 and have quite the beauty cult following because they work some serious magic on dry, chapped, winter torn lips. Each 4.3g lip treatment retails for approximately $26 each however the 6 varieties included in this Holiday set (2.2 g each) can be yours to gift for a mere $65 CAD.
L’Occitane Hand Cream Bouquet ($60 CAD)
I used to think that all hand creams were created equal but I was very wrong. L’Occitane’s hand creams are among the very best on the market and this year, you can gift their Hand Bouquet (even the name is cool!) for $60 CAD to that special someone! (the set includes 6 x 30ml hand creams in decadent flavours).
Benefit Pret a Party Full Face Makeup Kit ($59 CAD)
This limited-edition holiday set by Benefit features their bestselling They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara, POREfessional Face Primer, rose-tinted, Benetint Lip & Cheek Stain & Fakeup Undereye Hydrating Concealer – all in a collectible party tin! Only two of the four products are full size but all of them are must-trys! The set is valued at $97 but only retails for $59 CAD, making it the perfect, affordable gift this Holiday season!
