Fortunately, finding the perfect gift without breaking the bank is 100% possible. Here, we’ve set up a full guide of the best holiday gift ideas for anyone in your life, no matter your budget:
The Best Holiday Gift Ideas for The Beauty Lover
Under $20: Korean cult favorite skincare products are loved because they’re inexpensive and work just as well as higher end cosmetics. Because K-beauty is best known for its budget – friendly – yet – effective skincare, you have tons of options to choose from. The Aqua Blast Hydrating Cream by Ariul is only $14.99 and packs a huge, hydrating punch that’s beneficial for all skin types. For the luxury beauty lover, look to SNP’s Gold Collagen line, which contains real 24k gold and collagen for anti-aging benefits.
Under $50: Indie K-beauty is making its presence known in the beauty world, and for good reason: brands like MILLION RED and 2aN have beautiful makeup formulas housed in gorgeous packaging that any girl would fawn over. From eyeshadow palettes to lip tints in hot reds, pinks, and nudes, there’s no doubt the recipient of these indie Korean makeup products will love them. Our main recommendations from the brands? The MILLION RED Fiction Lip for its light and airy texture and 2aN’s Daily Blossom Eyeshadow Palette for its buttery soft shades in a variety of matte, neutral, and glitter finishes.
Under $100: So, what’s better than a new skincare product? An entire skincare set, obvi! KOODING’s specially curated skincare gift sets are tailor made to make creating a multi-step Korean skincare routine easy and fun. The Hddn Lab Skin Savior Set contains an essence and cream that are potent in ceramides and anti-aging antioxidants; the Hddn Lab Open Your Ice Set‘s serum, sleeping pack, and cream are a hyaluronic acid – packed trio that keep the skin soothed, even, and bright. The clean beauty lover in your life will love the Like I’m 5 Set for its gentle and EWG – verified ingredients.
