I’m a huge fan of trying new beauty products. I never know what will become part of my daily routine, so it is always fun to receive new beauty products as gifts. Beauty items are always on my holiday shopping list since they generally apply to women of all ages and are usually $50 or less. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite beauty items in my 2017 beauty gift guide.

Whenever I think of beauty products, my mind instantly thinks of makeup. Even though I don’t wear makeup every single day (ahem, mom life), it is always fun to get prettied up and try new colors. A few of my recent favorites are by RealHer, including their lip kips, eye shadow palettes and makeup brush sets (all C/O RealHer). The company is all about being comfortable in your own skin and empowering women, which is reflected in the products. They’ve named all the colors after inspirational words or phrases, like the “Women rule the world” lip kits or eye shadow shades like strong, proud or courageous. Such cute gift sets for any woman who could use a little pat on the back.
If you know a women who doesn’t yet own an electronic cleansing brush, this Opus Luxe by Nion Beauty (C/O Soft Surroundings) is the perfect gift. One side is used for cleansing and the other can be used to massage in face creams. It is also fully waterproof so it can be used in the shower. I can’t say enough good things about this little device!
After using the cleansing brush, there is nothing better than a good face mask. These emoji masks (C/O Soft Surroundings) might be the funniest practical gift I’ve seen this year. Each mask actually has an emoji printed on it, meaning you will look hilarious (maybe ridiculous) while moisturizing your skin. They come in happy, love and scream and at $10, they are the perfect stocking stuffer.
Speaking of moisturizing, these 24K Gold Under Eye Gel pads by Masquelogy (C/O) are also an awesome stocking stuffer. One of the ingredients is real 24K gold which helps produce collagen and reduce dark circles and puffiness. And who doesn’t want to put real gold on your face?! At $10, we can all afford to do it!
I’ve been a user of Coola products for years and the Coola sunless tanner and SPF 30 dawn patrol primer are two of my new favorites. The sunless tanner is the safe and easy way to get a little color in the middle of winter. I’ve also been using the primer for a couple months now, which is the perfect base before applying makeup. It has an amazing dry feel to it that almost makes me not want to apply any makeup at all. Such nice gifts!
Have you ever seen a more chic toothbrush in your life? No way. I’ve been using a Quip toothbrush (C/O Quip) for a few months now and it seriously makes brushing my teeth more fun. The company operates off a subscription model where they send you brush head refills and other toothbrush essentials on a set frequency. I’m all about functional gifts and Quip is one of my favorite picks for 2017.
