Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 9 - Share how you're treating yourself!

Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022

 

It’s officially holiday season here at Sephora, and we’re celebrating with all of our Community friends the best way we know how – by sharing beauty recommendations, of course! 🎁 The Beauty Insider Community always seems to have the best beauty buy, trick, or tip for just about any occasion, and now we’re truly putting you all to the test with a Holiday Gifting Challenge!

 

Here’s how it works: we polled our Community Ambassadors and had them come up with different hard-to-shop-for people (some of them real, some hypothetical… all very relatable) and turned them into weekly prompts to challenge our Community to brainstorm the perfect gift ideas for each. Each prompt will include two different people or gifts that fit under that overall category -- you can reply with different ideas for both recipients within that prompt, or share ideas for just one of them, or however you feel inspired to participate in this ultimate present-picking challenge. In your replies, be sure to tag those products using the “#” sign -- and don’t forget to come back each week to share your recommendations for the next batch of “giftees!”

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 5 - Share your best skincare gift picks!

Hi,

Thank you for making this post. I was wondering about this product, and when i saw you post i bought it right away. I am forever grateful for you because this helped to clear up my skin and it has never looked better. I am a teen and acne definitely took a tole on my confidence and now i feel more confidant in my skin then ever. It has only been two hour since i put it on for the first time an i already see such a difference.

Thank you

@CynthieLu  All great choices 😀

Thank you @Cissy63 I have the nuface mini, it's a great tool! 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 5 - Share your best skincare gift picks!

For the person who has all the skincare but maybe not all the tools, how about FaceGym Brightening Active Roller with Vitamin C Tool w/ 2 Roller Heads / Tool w/ 2 Roller Heads  or Mount Lai De-Puffing Rose Quartz Eye Treatment Tool

 

For the friend with acne who bounces around on skincare, I highly recommend Herbivore Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil - For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin 1 oz/ 30 mL and the #Herbivore Blue Tansy BHA and Enzyme Pore Refining Mask 2 oz/ 60 mL . They are both great for acne and will leave your skin looking great!

@thecatsmeow  I love blue tansy for it’s skin soothing qualities and love using it after face peels. 

Re: Holiday Gifting Challenge 2022: Week 5 - Share your best skincare gift picks!

  • For the skincare lover who probably has all kinds of lotions and potions but maybe not all the tools -@Saradestin 

 

-For something budget friendly, I'd suggest a Mount Lai Amethyst Roller standard size #

-A good mid-range budget pick, I'd consider a Slip Silk Pillowcase - Standard/Queen Snow Leopard 

-And for a money-is-no-object option, I'd go for the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite™ FaceWare Pro 

 

  • For my friend who loves skincare, has acne-prone skin, and who loves to bounce from brand to brand -@ather  

Who doesn't love a good skincare set? For this friend, I'd probably consider Paula's Choice Do More For your Pores Kit , belif Glow-on-the-Go Holiday Travel Kit , and the Peter Thomas Roth Masking Minis 5-Piece Mask Kit
