Gifts For Her: Skin Care Options


Hello, beauties! Are you looking for some good skin care options for the women in your life?  I have a few brands to go through that would be great options for different skin types and at different price points.  Like fragrances, purchasing skincare can be a bit intimate.  I recommend only purchasing skincare items for people you absolutely know or if you know the giftees skincare concerns.  Keep reading for some gifts for her: skin care options.


Schique is a brand that was created in 2014 by Board-Certified Medical Doctor Jacqueline Schaffer.  Dr. Jacqueline Schaffer was inspired to create a cosmetic that was as good for you in on the inside and outside.  This was brought about after watching her mother battle skin cancer twice.  Her main focus was to create a line that is naturally based, clinically backed, and scientifically proven.

With the holidays, Schique has some great gift sets available.  One, in particular, would be the Best of Schique.  This gift set has the best the brand has to offer and a great set for someone starting a skincare regime or perfect for someone who already has a detailed routine, but would love to try different products.  I, for one, am a huge skincare junkie and love testing out new items and new brands.  Schique is a brand that I have never heard of before, but I love the story behind the brand and the fact that the products actually work.

There are so many ways to gift this product, I would suggest getting a cute Christmas themed basket, throw in some stuffing, set up the products with a hand band to keep the products out of the way, and a cute candle and wrap it in a cellophane bag.  It will make a beautiful addition to under the tree.  The best part is this kit is originally $108 but is on sale for $49.00.  That is more than half off, making this gift a great value and affordable.

Queen Helene

Queen Helene is a brand that has been around since 1930 curating products for professional and personal use.  This is a brand that has been committed to creating a full beauty line ranging from skin, hair, foot, and bath and at an affordable price.  Fun fact:  they still create items that have been apart of their original products.  I think it’s safe to say with 80 years of experience under their belt, Queen Helene is a leading brand in the beauty industry.

Some favorites of the brand are their masques and scrubs.  Their newest product is the Volcanic Ash Masque.  This product is great at pulling out impurities from deep within our skin to allow for refreshed skin.  It’s perfect for all skin types- but as a recommendation, if you have super dry skin, I would suggest using it about twice a week at most.

Another great option for this brand will be the Mint Julep Mask or scrub. Mint Julep is great for someone with oily skin and/or acne-prone skin.  The masque, in particular, is original to the brand that will help absorb oil and minimize pores.

Items like this are perfect as stocking stuffers, co-worker gifts, and are an affordable gift to bring to “A few of my favorite things parties”.  If you have never been to one of these parties, I would highly suggest attending or throwing one.  What you do is get a bunch of girlfriends together for a party.  Everyone will bring enough of their favorite items to share at the party.   These masques and scrubs are around $3.50 a pop.  Super affordable and great quality!



This brand is really innovative with another great story.  This brand started out as a dream for two soccer players to create a superfood natural brand.  YesTo’s products are at least 95% all natural and can be found at over 27,000 stores.  YesTo has over ten different collections for all skin types, but I am happy to announce that I have used products from all the lines and have had no issues with any of the products.   I say this because I have super sensitive skin with lots of allergies.  I’ve been extremely lucky these past few years to not have any episodes.  A constant in my skincare routine is YesTo’s face wipes and face masks.

Speaking of face masks, YesTo has some great holiday sets out right now that can be found exclusively at Target and Walmart.  They have smaller gift sets that would make great stocking stuffers or bigger kits that would make great gifts for under the tree.

The two I picked out is the Ultimate Masking kit and the Super Detox Skin Care Kit.  The Ultimate Masking kit comes with Single Use Charcoal Paper Mask, Tomatoes Paper Mask, Cucumbers Mud Mask, Coconut Mud Mask and Charcoal Mud Mask.  The mask gift set can be located at any Target location for $9.99.

*Target currently has a special.  Purchase one-holiday beauty gift set and get another for 50% off.  Also, don’t forget to sign up for a Target debit to get an extra 5% off.  I, personally, would recommend purchasing the items online for free in-store pickup and use Ebates for extra cashback*

The Super Detox Skin Care kit can be located at Walmart for $9.99 as well. Unfortunately, I was not able to locate via the Walmart website.  If you are able to locate it, you are able to order online for free in-store pickup as well.

Any of these kits would make great gifts under the tree.  I would suggest purchasing the mask kit and breaking it up into smaller gift sets for co-workers or girlfriends.  You a separate the masks, add in a bath bomb, candle, and a favorite drink- Perfect Spa night gift!  We all know that me time is super important.

Stocking Stuffers

Do you need a quick, but good gift idea?  Something that says, Yes, I did put a little thought into your gift?  Then check out this gift set from Philosophy Purity Party Double Duty Cleansing Duo.  Purity is a great face cleanser for every skin type.  Also, micellar water has been all the rage, so it doesn’t surprise me that  Philosophy wanted to create one as well.

 Party Double Duty Cleansing Duo includes:

  • Purity Made Simple One-Step Cleanser (3.0 oz.)
