Christmas Gift Guide: For the Skincare Junkie

Christmas Gift Guide: For the Skincare Junkie | She Sweats Diamonds

Happy last weekend of the Sephora Holiday Bonus Beauty Insider Sale! You’re probably sick of me talking all-things Sephora, but you have to know that as an addict, the first step is to talk about your problem. 

And for me, to talk about my problem, is to share, am I right?

Today through Monday, November 19th, all Beauty Insiders get their turn at the sale with 15% off with code: BIBONUS.

Oh and for us VIB and Rouge members (I hit Rouge with my purchases earlier this month, yay!), Sephora just extended the event for us for one more weekend! Use code: ENJOY for 20% off your order, in-store or online, and start crossing people off your Christmas list!

With that said, here’s what I’d recommend for the skincare junkie(s) in your life. 

CLEANSERS

LANEIGE Multi Cleanser  – I just got this in the mail from my haul a few weeks ago and can’t wait to use it with their Water Sleeping Mask and Moisture Bank Cream! Review coming very soon! 

KOPARI Coconut Cleansing Oil – This is the first cleansing oil I’ve added to my beauty cabinet. I look forward to see how it works! 

TATCHA Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing OilAs a skincare junkie, Tatcha has quickly become one of my favorite brands. And considering that I’m in love with their sunscreen, why not take it a step further and try their cleansing oil? I bought the smaller size to test it out before I make a commitment. 

FARMACY Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser – I bought one of Farmacy’s sets for my sister-in-love for her birthday and thought it was high time to try their cleanser!

BOSCIA Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser – I’ve been using this product this week and like it so far. After rinsing, my skin feels clean and soft.


MASKS

DRUNK ELEPHANT T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial – As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been struggling with milia. So far, this has been a great product! With the few times I’ve used it, my milia is slowly going away. I will be increasing my frequency of usage throughout the holidays to see if there’s more of a difference. I’ll be doing a review sometime in the Spring for you guys!

BOSCIA Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask – I’ve used this mask several times. The results are a clean feeling. You just have to be careful when peeling the mask off. Don’t be like me and put it too close to your hairline, haha! 

FRESH Rose Face Mask – Fresh beauty + roses  + face mask? Yes, please!

SAND & SKY Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask – As a skincare junkie, I love trying new-to-me brands so Sand & Sky, I’m coming for you soon! 

CAUDALIE Instant Detox Mask – The product description says this keeps my pores tight. Um, anything to keep gunk from getting into my pores!


OILS/SERUMS

HERBIVORE Lapis Oil Balancing Facial Oil – If you’re an avid reader, you know that I love this oil! Since it reduces redness, I’ve tried it on my zits and they do help a little!

DRUNK ELEPHANT Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil – I mix a few drops of this facial oil with one pump of DE’s night serum and it’s enough for my entire face!

DRUNK ELEPHANT T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum – If you have milia, do yourself a favor and get this. At least ask for a sample. You can thank me later. 

BAREMINERALS ETERNALIXIR™ Skin-Volumizing Oil Serum – I get dry and flaky around my nose/mouth and with an aesthetician raving about this on top of the ah-mazing reviews, this may be next on my list of serums to try!

TATCHA Gold Camellia Beauty Oil – Do the words Tatcha, beauty, gold and oil in one product name mean anything to me? Why yes. Yes, it does! Enough for me to wishlist it to try it!


SUNSCREEN

TATCHA Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 – Again, is THE best sunscreen ever!!! If you have combo/oily skin, the price is WORTH it for less oily skin too! This is NOT a drill, people! 

SUPERGOOP! Everyday Sunscreen with SPF 50 – I want to buy this so I can say that I wear Supergoop on my face just to see the look on people’s faces who are not beauty enthusiasts, haha!

MURAD City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++ – If a product has raving reviews, count me in to try that product!

LA MER The Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid – Sunscreen made by La Mer? Who else is a skincare junkie? Raise your hand and agree with me that you’d SO try out this product! 

TOM FORD Face Protect SPF 50 – Oh, Tom Ford, how I love thee! If TF fans love it, I’m sure I will too.


GIFT SETS

LANEIGE Sleep and Glow Set – For $39, this is a GREAT set for your skincare junkie. Pop the sleeping water mask in the fridge and I promise it’ll feel 10x better! I can hear you “Ahhh”-ing right now.

BOSCIA Dig Deep The Charcoal Skin Kit – I tried a different BOSCIA set and was not a fan of several products. However, I think I’d love this set!

AMOREPACIFIC 12 Days of Essential Beauty – I’d get this set just for the pretty packaging! I mean, it’s AmorePacific and pretty packaging! I’d love to open this up on Christmas!

FIRST AID BEAUTY Skin Summit – First Aid Beauty is a brand I’d love to try and considering that the reviews say the set is a steal for the price, into my cart it goes!

TATCHA Best Sellers Set – Because it’s TATCHA! Come on, people. Work with me here!!! 

That’s it for now! On the same note, I’ve hauled a ton from the Sephora Holiday Bonus sale and I absolutely CANNOT wait to start testing and review for you guys!

Since Christmas is coming…

What are you nabbing for the skincare junkie in your life?

Or for yourself? Same person, right? ::wink::

Note: Any product that I’ve mentioned that I love, I purchased myself. I was not gifted these products nor was I compensated or asked to review these products by Sephora or any (beauty) brand. All opinions are solely my own. Please note that with all of my gift guides, I prefer to suggest items within various prices ranges as I know everyone’s budget varies.
