So with the holidays just around the corner (yes, believe it or not, they will be here before we know it), one thing I am extremely thankful for are the adorable gift-sets that most cosmetics and beauty brands put out each fall/holiday season.
Usually sold at most stores, gift boxes are a great option for buying your favorite products at cheaper prices. You won’t have to spend your whole paycheck on a bottle of lotion or a tube of mascara! You can even try samples of products that have caught your eye but did not fit into your budget. Whether you’re buying the gift sets for yourself or for loved ones, they are sure to send you running down the mall with joy
Here are a few of my favorites this year:
Benefit Advent Calendar: Sephora has brought back a favorite childhood Christmas tradition: The advent calendar. This time though, instead of two cent questionable chocolates or cheap plastic toys, Sephora uses your favorite Benefit Cosmetics Products each day. Benefit has always been one of my favorite brand for make up so I’m sure you can imagine how I was squealing with joy when I came across this set. Each day you open the doors to a new sample size benefit product and while the price of $68.00 isn’t exactly a bargain, when you think of each products’ full size price, this sample is totally worth it. You get a little bit of everything for the price of two regular products. My favorites included in this set are The BadGal Lash Mascara and the Coralista Blush but I’m mostly excited to try all the new treats.
Soap and Glory Beginner’s set: As a die-hard Soap and Glory fan, I would recommend this set to anyone just getting started with these products or even veterans like me who just need (want) to restock their collection. Soap and Glory makes amazing bath and body products that all smell incredibly fresh and light. Every product I have used has only been extremely beneficial to my skin and with the adorable packaging and names, who could resist?
Tocca Fragrances: Meet the Girls
If you have read any of my other posts, I’m sure you are getting tired of me raving about Tocca perfumes but, I just can’t help it. They are all so girly and beautiful that I find myself walking around with my wrist in my nose like a crazy person every day. This deluxe sample set includes every scent Tocca has come out with. It is like heaven all in one box. Aside from being an incredibly adorable concept, this “Meet the Girls” box set will introduce you to a number of scents that you just may fall in love with. It is the best way to try a little of each one if you are buying for yourself and with so many options, hey why not make your friend’s day and give her a few too?
Stila: Color Me Glossy
For those of you lip gloss fans, this is the set for you. I personally am not a huge lip gloss person…I either tend to wear an actual lipstick or skip it all together but I recently tried a Stila lip gloss and LOVED it. It wasn’t that sticky horror show that most glosses provide, and the color was ridiculously gorgeous. The reason I love this set so much is because it comes with three Individually packaged lip trios making perfect gifts! Keep one give two away, keep them all, give them all…I don’t care what you do as long someone is loving them as much as I do. These colors are perfect for dazzling guests at holiday parties (as if you won’t already) so jump on that Stila bandwagon and get ‘em!
Fragrance Sampler For Him:
I’m obsessed with the fragrance samplers that Sephora put out each year. It is a great idea; get a ton of mini samples and then a gift-card to redeem a full size of your favorite one. Guys are you looking to treat yourself to a classy new bottle of cologne but don’t know which one to choose? Go with this sampler. Girls: if your boyfriend still refuses to tell you what he wants for the holidays this year, this is perfect, it’s a present for you too! Who doesn’t love a great smelling guy?
