Bid farewell to dull and dehydrated skin while travelling during the holiday season. This beautifully packaged set of four super-hydrating minis from this dermatologist-approved brand features all you need to combat dry and flaky skin.
You can choose to gift this to your favourite jet-setter or break them up as stocking stuffers. There’s also no shame in saving these travel-sized minis for yourself.
Christmas is all about giving back to the community. This year, Innisfree partnered with the Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF), pledging to donate $2 to the CCF with every purchase of a DIY String Art Kit (valued at $2 with any purchase from the Christmas collection or $10).
If that’s not impetus enough, this holiday palette has all the glittery shades you need to nail the perfect party look. You can play up the basics by creating a smokey look or keep it fresh by sweeping the entire lid with one of the lighter shades.
This out of this universe is the go-to gift if you’re shopping for a makeup lover. You can’t go wrong with this eye and cheek multi-palette because these shades are universally flattering and offer a wide array of mix-and-match hues.
Priced at $25.90, this palette that will look spectacular on any vanity and bathroom counter is an absolute steal.
The limited-edition duo of creams is everything you need for achieving that je ne sais quoi glow. Open the whimsical candy wrapper packaging (no wrapping paper required) to unveil two of the brand’s bestsellers – the Erborian CC Cream and the Glow Cream.
Packed with moisturising centalla asiatica, the Erborian CC Cream contains pigments that self-adjust to your skin tone so you don’t have to worry about getting the wrong shade if you’re picking it up for your friend. When paired together with the translucent glow cream, you’ll be able to achieve that coveted luminous complexion.
Anyone who is into K-beauty would know the importance of layering skincare products. Kick start your skincare routine by removing traces of oil, dirt and grime on the skin with the toner before locking in the moisture with the lightweight emulsion.
Great for giftees on the go, each set comes with a full-size as well as travel-size version of the brand’s chia seed infused toner and emulsion.
Few cushion foundations can elicit as much excitement as Laneige’s BB confetti-themed holiday cushion. A cult beauty favourite from the brand, this BB cushion that comes in three shades brightens and evens out the skin tone for a dewy and flawless finish.
Throw in the holiday cushion blusher ($32) and the holiday ideal shadow quad ($42) for good measure and your k-beauty obsessed pal will love you to bits.
This beautifully packaged Christmas set boasts the brand’s hit products including the Brightening Cover Powder Cushion and South Korean brand ambassador Park Shin Hye’s favourite shade of creamy tint colour balm (shade 5 Blooming Rose).
The makeup set also comes with a lip tint in a crimson shade, perfect for this time of the year. If it’s good enough for Park Shin Hye, it’s good enough for us.
Like a facial in a box, this exquisite set features three signature masks (Radiance Energy Mask, Overnight Vitalizing Mask and Clarifying Mask) that nourishes and rejuvenates the skin. Who wouldn’t be thrilled to find this box of luxurious masks formulated for different skin concerns under the Christmas tree.
