All year round we allocate a budget for our beauty and skincare needs. You might’ve seen your friends or relatives shopping in the beauty section every once in a while, especially when they’ve run out of their go-to products. Now that Christmas is near, do them a solid and give them a gift set.
This list goes out to those who are looking to save a few bucks while shopping beauty products for their loved ones. Shop our picks now before other people do.
Sephora Collection Sugarcoated Lip Gloss Set
A tube of lip gloss can come in handy for last-minute retouches. Sephora Collection’s limited-edition set contains 12 shades with sheer to medium coverage. You can wear them on their own or use them as lip toppers. Feel free to also mix and match shades if you want to create a unique color. Available on Sephora PH.
Who doesn’t want to relax in a tub with all the bath essentials? Lush’s Snowflakes gift set comes with the following: Plum Snow bubble bar, Snowcloud soap, Thunder Snow bath bomb, and Snow Fairy naked body conditioner—all wrapped in a pink and blue Knot Wrap. Each item will give you a soothing and refreshing experience, and of course, you’ll smell good too. Plus, the items come in a “bare-all” solid form, meaning they don’t have paper wrappers or plastic bottles. Available at Bonifacio High Street.
