I don't know about you, but I'd much rather receive ONE amazing beauty product than a pre-packaged set of travel sizes that I may or may not use.
With that in mind, I've curated a list of my favourite beauty products to give (or get!) this season. To me, these little beauty luxuries just seem more special—and thoughtful!
The Best Beauty Gifts Under $25, $50 and $100
Under $25: Herbivore Coconut Bath Soak
Not only is the packaging on point, but so are the ingredients in Herbivore's Coconut Bath Soak. Inside is a silky, all-natural bath powder scented with vanilla and coconut.
Under $25: Library of Flowers Parfum Crema
Under $25: French Girl Rose Lip Polish
Never underestimate the appeal of the words "French girl"! This French Girl Rose Lip Polish (a.k.a. exfoliating lip scrub) is the chicest route to softer lips.
Under $25: Caudalie French Kiss Tinted Lip Balm
Speaking of French, Caudalie's French Kiss Tinted Lip Balm is sure to please both makeup enthusiasts and minimalists alike. The wooden cap is gorgeous, and the balm itself gives a sheer hint of colour. There are three shades, including Séduction (shown here).
Under $25: Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Bag
At this price point, Charlotte Tilbury's Makeup Bag is the cutest one around. Fun fact: the lip prints belong to some of the most iconic women in fashion.
Under $25: Vitruvi Sleep Mist
Vitruvi's Sleep Mist is a modern way to enjoy aromatherapy. The blends are as complex as perfumes, and you simply mist away—no oil burners required!
Under $50: Indie Lee I-Recover Body Soak
Indie Lee I-Recover Body Soak is a blend of mineral-rich Dead Sea and Himalayan salts, spiked with arnica, eucalyptus and lavender. It's perfect for active types, as it will soothe sore muscles post-workout.
Under $50: Bastide Liquid Hand Wash
If you're after a hostess gift, may I suggest Bastide Liquid Hand Wash? It's an artisanal, natural hand soap from Provence in a luxe glass bottle.
Under $50: Skin Gym Jade Double Duty Smooth & Textured Face Roller
The Skin Gym Jade Double Duty Smooth & Textured Face Roller is a great gift for anyone in need of relaxation. Made from natural jade, this precious tool can be used for facial massage, de-stressing and de-puffing.
Under $50: bkr Spiked Water Bottle
For the sporty ones on your list, you can't go wrong with a bkr Spiked Water Bottle. The spikes are new this year and come in a range of shades, including Naked (shown here). As always, it can all be popped in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
Under $100: Slip Pure Silk Sleep Mask
Under $100: Claus Porto Deco Mini Soap Collection
The Claus Porto Deco Mini Soap Collection features the most beautifully-wrapped soaps I've EVER seen! You get nine hand-wrapped mini bars in retro-inspired packaging.
Under $100: Guerlain Rouge G Customizable Lipstick
For the ultimate lipstick splurge, I will always recommend Guerlain Rouge G, which is now completely customizable. You choose the lipstick shade and the case separately—the case is truly a work of art, and opens up to reveal a mirror inside for touch-ups. Plus, you couldn't ask for a better formula.
Under $100: Ila Bath Salts for Inner Peace
The most upscale bath salts I've ever come across are the Ila Bath Salts for Inner Peace. The jar is BIG, and it's HEAVY! Inside are the highest-quality Himalayan salt crystals and essential oils.
Under $100: Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence
When it comes to facial skincare, who doesn't love a good face mist? Tata Harper's Hydrating Floral Essence is suitable for all skin types, and that green glass bottle is just stunning to display—it makes me happy every single day!
Under $100: Le Labo Classic Candle
When in doubt, go with a candle. Even if they don't actually use it, it always doubles as home decor! Le Labo Classic Candles are a cult favourite, and come in an array of unique scents. Palo Santo 14, shown here, is the newest, but Santal 26 is their claim to fame.
