I can’t believe Christmas is in less than two weeks! Where did the time go?!
It’s been a wild year. And with all of life’s uncertainties and challenges, I feel like 2020 has been the slowest year ever yet has flown by so quickly.
ANYWAY…After scouring every Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sale in existence for beauty lovers, it’s now time to secure and finalize holiday gifts. So, today, I’m sharing a list of holiday gift ideas for all the loved ones on your list (and for you!).
Happy Holidays to each of you, and thank you for all of your love and support this year. XOXO

FOR THE FACE
AbsoluteJOI Skincare – Skincare Starter Collection ($86.40 – $96.00 Value)
The Skincare Starter Collection is a great option for someone looking to start a skincare routine. The set includes an oil cleanser, gel cleanser, toner, and skin refining oil. All of their products are fragrance and essential-oil free and very gentle. Check out my review of the brand here for more details.
Deviant Skincare – Cleansing Concentrate ($60.84 – 100ml)
If you’re looking to level up your cleansing routine, then this cleansing balm is the perfect gift. This decadent oil balm provides such a sensational experience while removing all your makeup and sunscreen.
HMNKind – Antibacterial Face Masks ($28.00)
Face masks are the new essential, and finding functional, fashionable, and comfortable ones can be hard to come by. These face masks conform to your face, are antibacterial, breathable, and don’t provide any friction as you move. Use my code BEAUTYINCOLOR at checkout for 15% off your purchase.

Jordan Samuel Skin – Fall Skincare Duo ($55.00 – $65.00 Value)
The Fall Skincare Duo includes a fantastic balm cleanser (free of fragrance and essential oils) and a gentle retinol oil.
Naturium – The Dry Savior Skin Kit ($45.00 – $57.00 Value)
This set is a great option for my dry skin beauties. The kit includes a full-size hyaluronic acid serum, rich ceramide moisturizer, and marula oil. These products help hydrate, nourish, and soothe dry, flaky skin.
Paula’s Choice has a few of their own holiday kits this season. But, I had the luxury of curating a gift guide of five products from the brand. My gift guide includes their C15 Super Booster, 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, Omega+ Complex Serum, Omega+ Complex Moisturizer, and the Youth Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50.
I think these are great options for the fall and winter months, and they’re actually my go-to’s from the brand this season. For my review on these products, check out my brand review here. You can also get 15% off my favorites here.
Skinfix – The More the Barrier+ Holiday Kit: Best of Skinfix ($45.00 – $86.00 Value)
I love the Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream, especially for the fall and winter. This kit is a great option to try out this peptide cream and other Skinfix products geared toward healthy skin. It includes the Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Boost 360 Eye Cream, Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream, Eczema+ Hand Repair Cream, Resurface+ AHA Renewing Body Cream, and a makeup travel bag.
LUXURY BODY CARE
Jordan Samuel Skin After Show Body Cleanser ($37.00 – $240ml)
This oil-gel body cleanser transforms into a beautiful milky texture once it’s combined with water. I have honestly never experienced anything like it. This does have a mango, citrus aromatic extract blend. But, it’s been divine for my dry body! Use this link to get 15% off your purchase.
Necessaire – The Body Ritual Kit ($80.00 – $125.00 Value)
You can try all the body products from Necessaire in this kit! This set includes a full-size Body Wash, Body Exfoliator, Body Serum, and Body Lotion in the scent of your choosing: Sandalwood, Eucalyptus, Bergamot, or Fragrance-Free. For details on these products, check out my brand review here.
Sade Baron – Body Care Set for Sensitive Skin ($74.00 – $125 Value)
This set is a great body option for someone with sensitive skin. It includes their soothing body wash, body cream, beauty balm, and sea wool sponge. All of the items in the set are fragrance and essential oil free.
Sknmuse – Deluxe Body Butter in Cacao – ($60.00 – 473 ml)
Now, this creamy and luxurious body butter will have you glowing, moisturized, and soft. I received the medium-sized (9 oz.) Cacao body butter in July. I loved it so much that I bought the deluxe size (16 oz.) in November! The deluxe size also comes with a beautiful gold spoon or scooping!
Sknmuse also has a Duet Set Kit, which comes with their medium-sized body butter and large body oil.
FYI – Cacao is the only body butter that is fragrance and essential-oil free.
Danessa Myricks Illuminating Veil Mini Trio Set contains three highly pigmented, long-wearing cream highlighters that give a flattering glow to your face and body year-round. It’s a perfect gift for the normally sun-kissed jetsetter who is grounded this year. Danessa Myricks has so many fun beauty products to create a glowy, dewy look that’s perfect for those who don’t wear too much makeup.
Fenty Beauty has some beautiful holiday kits for anyone who loves a glow and a red lip.
- Lil’ Bronze Duo ($24.00)
- Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set: Holo’Daze Edition ($36.00 – $46.00 Value)
- Two Lil Stunnas Mini Longwear Fluid Lip Color Duo ($25.00)
- Stunna New Year Highlighter + Lip Set: Lunar New Year Edition ($50.00 – $61.00 Value)
The Lip Bar has Holiday Kits for the season. But, my favorite products from their line are the:
- Fresh Glow Duo Bronzing Kits ($22.00 – I wear the shade: Just Got Paid)
- Liquid Matte Lipstick in Bawse Lady ($13.00)
- Liquid Matte Lipstick in Hot Mama ($13.00)
I’ve been using The Lip Bar since they participated in The Connection Network’s Summer Gazelle Series in 2014. I tried on their Purple Rain lipstick and fell in love. And I’ve since helped work a few events for the company in New York. They have great products for every skin tone at a very reasonable price point.

Pat McGrath has some great sales right now on eye, lip, and highlighter products here. I’m thinking about getting an eye palette as a gift for myself.
Briogeo – Merry Multi-Masking Kit ($36.00 – $54.00 Value)
I’ve raved about Briogeo’s Avocado Hair Mask over the last few months, so I purchased this kit and fell in love. The Honey Bear conditioner left my relaxed hair easy to detangle and soft without being weighed down. As someone with extremely tangled hair when wet, I was impressed. I’ll be using more from this line for sure!
You can check out more kits from their line here.
These high-quality combs, picks, and hair clips are durable and come in beautiful shades. I picked this set up recently, and I love them. The tortoise shell set was sold out, but I’ll definitely be picking those up in the future when they’re available.
HOME & SELF CARE
Alexandra Winbush September Sixth Candle ($25.00 – 266 ml)
You all know I love a good candle! The sensorial experience of candles brings so much tranquility and nostalgia.
This Moroccan Amber scented candle reminds me of sipping a hot drink under a blanket by the fireplace. It’s sexy, soft, and slightly sweet.
Palm Trees & 80 Degrees Waves of Amber Candle ($20.00 – 295 ml)
Speaking of good candles, Palm Trees & 80 Degrees is another great candle brand. Their Waves of Amber scent has an alluring woody fragrance with hints of sandalwood, jasmine, and rich amber. It’s sensual and intriguing.
Now, I’m getting this strictly for the packaging. These marble vessels are designed to be repurposed or refilled. This is a perfect holiday gift for candle lovers!
If you’re like me and enjoy an amber scent, check out their Cannabis Flower and Limestead fragrance options.
What we wear affects our behavior, and this applies to what we wear when we’re alone (or nearly alone) and in the comfort of our own homes. After all, the time we spend in our homes has increased significantly lately.
These washable silk pajamas look and feel so fantastic! Who doesn’t love the feel of silk?!
A Promised Land by Barack Obama ($27.00)
This book is the newest biography from my former (and favorite) President, Barack Obama. I think this book is a must-have for yourself and will obviously make a perfect gift!
Necessaire Hand Cream ($20.00 – 65 ml)
This hand-cream is unscented, lightweight, and doesn’t leave an oily film like most hand creams. It also comes in a beautifully minimalistic recyclable tube that your gift-receivers will love to flaunt.
Shiseido Facial Cottons ($12.00)
Shiseido Facial Cottons come with 165 cotton pads, and trust me, once you try these, you’ll never go back. These high-quality cotton pads absorb just the right amount of product, feels super soft, and never leaves lint behind on your face.
Talula Skincare – Holiday Bundle ($30.00)
Enjoy a gentle body scrub and a nourishing body butter set for the Holidays. This is a great set for the winter months.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS & HAPPY SHOPPING!
