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!”

This is simply amazing @itsfi ! When I find myself not knowing what gift to get for someone, I am going to call you! 😁 Spectacular!

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

That’s such a nice thing to say @Saradestin! Thank you. 😊 There’s so many beauties to choose from and I love that there’s so many great resources in BIC for product reviews and gift recommendations! 

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

@itsfi  Wow!!! You have hit both of these out of the park!! How did I not think of the gua sha or the cooling globes!! For the acne prone friend you also came up with so many great ideas! The dots make such a great gifts!! I may need to use some of these ideas for my secret Santa who is skincare obsessed like such a perfect person for me to shop for! 

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

Awww, thank you @ather! I feel like my struggles over the years with adult acne and maskne has given me oh so many opportunities to try different products and see what works when, etc. 😆 

 

Your secret Santa completely lucked out with you! You’ll have to let us know what you decide to go with. 

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

@itsfi  Well so far I got her a paint by numbers it’s an elephant one and it said those are her favourites! I wanted to gift her a S.C. foot and hand mask but I think she would know it’s me. So I’m a little on the fence. I’m going to put her favourite chocolate and some face and hair masks. And I’m stuck on the rest.

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

Oh, those are some fabulous goodies you’ve picked out for your secret santa @ather. 😃 What about adding a lip balm or scrub? Or foot or bath salts? Or a candle? 

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

@itsfi  Oh yes those are great ideas! I’m definitely going to add those to my list! 

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

@ather, your office secret santa sure lucked out that you picked her name - she's gonna be spoiled! 🎁

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

@itsfi  Oh wow such wonderful choices.  Breaking them down by cost is very helpful 🥰

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

Thank you @Cissy63! 😊 I love that there are such great options at different price points! 

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

Woah, great suggestions @itsfi ! How does the Beauty bio compare to the Derma flash one? DERMAFLASH DERMAPORE Ultrasonic Pore Extractor & Serum Infuser Icy Pink 

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

@Buootiful, the dermaflash extracts gunk out of pores allowing serums to work more effectively. The dermaflash doesn’t include a serum/solution.

 

The BeautyBio is similar to a hydrafacial and the in store perk facials. It includes a solution containing hyaluronic acid and salicylic acid. It also acts to purify pores at at the same time infuses the skin with the hyaluronic acid and salicylic acid serum. The BeautyBio also has a blue light LED feature. 

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

This is an amazing selection @itsfi excellent gifting ideas 😄

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

@CynthieLu, love that we have so many great options to choose from!

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

@itsfi I’m just going to copy and email this list to all my loved ones as my Christmas list 😉
