  • Okay, guys, we're powering through all of these gift guides.

  • I hope that they're really helpful.

  • It's been fun to put together.

  • I love to also just kind of put all of my thoughts together on my block post and then kind of, like, just talk about them here and just highlight a few of the pieces that I really am excited just to share with you guys.

  • So today I wanted to discuss the beauty items.

  • Of course, whoever's receiving thes they might have certain sensitivities and whatnot, so just be mindful of that.

  • But I think that everything that I have here is things that I think anyone would enjoy.

  • And I just love the packaging and the experience of Also, I just love to give beauty items because they fit well in a stocking, and they're thoughtful and, you know, they aren't permanent.

  • So if someone wanted to use them, then they're not just going to stick around in their house forever, So that just makes the good gift opportunity, you know?

  • Okay, let's get started.

  • So I have a huge box full, so I'm gonna go as quickly as I can through these, So I want to start off with some kit.

  • The 1st 1 is from Kota Lee.

  • I mentioned them in my women's gift guide slash my wish list by my last video, and this trio is really cool because it's masks that help you have instantly beautiful skin.

  • It says the collection of masks offers busy women perfect skin in record time.

  • I think that this would be a really great gift.

  • I plan to give this one, so I have not tried it.

  • But I am excited to give it, and I'm going to attempt to remove the sticker still working on that.

  • But yeah, I'll definitely be taking that right.

  • Next is hair care.

  • So this is the three Wake it.

  • This has texture, volume and waves, So the 1st 1 is a texturizing spray.

  • It supposed to kind of help your hair acts like it has a pomade in it, but without all of the weight in it as well.

  • And then it has a volumizing spray.

  • I think that that's really good even for people like me who have.

  • I just have very thick hair, and it has a mind of its own, but sometimes it's just laying completely flat, and I think that that would be good for anyone.

  • But it does suggest if someone has fine hair, that this would be a really good thing.

  • And then also, it's gotta wave spray, which I just absolutely loved toe have, like the ocean surfside spray in my hair.

  • Sometimes when I just want, like a lazy day, feel it comes with clips.

  • So while you're here is damp, you can clip them in when you have the waves spray in, and it's just going to have those, you know, effortless waves.

  • In a very like, intentional way, you can make it work for you.

  • Next.

  • I have a kid by grown alchemist, and I just have to say, as faras, their design and aesthetic is concerned.

  • This is so beautiful is one of those things where if you just left these things out on your counter, it would just look so beautiful.

  • It wouldn't look messy, necessarily.

  • So what dinner is.

  • The 1st 1 is a facial moisturizer, and that one has a lovely like uranium sent to it.

  • The next one is a hand creams that vanilla and orange peel and in the lip balm is the vanilla and watermelon.

  • So that's what comes in.

  • It's I am giving this one as a gift.

  • So I'm really excited to just give these things because I'm so proud of them and they're all things that I would truly love to receive.

  • This is the last kit, of course.

  • I think it's are such a great option because the packaging is exceptional and then also just to receive more than one item.

  • And generally you can receive a better value for it when it syndicate.

  • So this next one is the orb, a body travel set, and it comes with a body cream and a body wash.

  • I've used their body scrub in the past, and I've been so impressed, especially this time of year.

  • So I also link that down in the description below, because I think it's such an excellent product that's in my bathroom right now.

  • So obviously I'm a big fan, and I love the way that their bottles look as well.

  • It's just so gorgeous, so definitely check this one out.

  • If you want to give, like a body beautiful luxury item moving into makeup, this next one is something that I swore by for over a year, and I'm so excited.

  • This one is going to be a gift for myself, and I'm so excited to have it back.

  • It's the naked to urban decay basics palate, you know, it was one of those things where I had it when I was going to the gym every morning and after I would shower and get ready.

  • People were like, Oh, I know what that pallet is.

  • It's amazing, like I know and why I love it.

  • So much is really because it has very neutral colors, whereas a lot of other palates have, like hints of pink and everything that are unexpected, and you might be reaching for a brown eye shadow that day.

  • But really, what you came out with was just this weird green mix and you go out in the daylight.

  • You're like what?

  • And so as a gift, I really think that this is a safe option because this would be a color scheme that works well on anybody.

  • And I also love the fact that the brightest color in this is a very like yellow and pale tone, so that if you want Thio actually highlight things like you know the highlight of your brow, then that would actually be something that highlights a lot of times when I, especially in the winter time, try to go highlight my brow.

  • It's just not bright enough, and so that really works well.

  • But it also has just a whole range of colors, neutral colors, so you can see there.

  • It's just very minimal and neutral, and I also like the fact that there weren't tons of different ranges of colors that I'm not going to use.

  • When I got through with this pallet the first time, it was like I used every single color, and that never has happened with the palate before.

  • So I had to throw in a few glossy A products.

  • Obviously I love glossies, whole aesthetic, like their whole experience when you're shopping on their site there, checkout process was amazing.

  • And then when you receive it, it comes in this amazing packaging that would be so cute to open up on like Christmas morning, then also just the products themselves.

  • I'm just really impressed with.

  • I've been using them all year, and one thing that I absolutely loved was the mascara.

  • So this is something that I would use if I didn't want to do like a Vava voom.

  • Look, it was more like for every day, which is also so great, because when I go to remove my makeup, this stuff actually comes off without much effort and tugging on your skin, which is so delicate and so that's why I've been really loving the lash slick.

  • Another very safe bet to get someone as a gift from glossy A is the cloud paint.

  • And when you look at these colors, they look a little bit daunting.

  • But I actually went with the bravest of the colors at the time, and I was impressed by how it looked on my skin.

  • I don't really think that anyone could go wrong with this, because as long as you don't put on too much, which is kind of easy to dio, it is easy to apply and build upon.

  • If you wanted to just assess, like how much blush or, you know, lipstick that you want to put on, you could even put these on your eyelids a little bit.

  • I've done that in the past, just for fun.

  • So this color that I have is Hayes.

  • And that was good if you just wanted a flush of color, maybe looking like you just had gone to yoga.

  • And then this one is more if you just feel like you want a little bit of a son, a son kiss.

  • Look.

  • So this one's called Beam, and I like to just kind of put that around my face.

  • I don't have it on right now, but it is something that I like to do, especially even when in the summertime.

  • It was fun to use and play with at that time, too.

  • Okay, there's so much I want to say about this next product.

  • So I'm just going to just blab.

  • Okay, so this is Lila be and you can tell how much I've used it and loved it because the logo is not on there anymore.

  • And there's some scratches and stuff.

  • It is very well loved by all year I've been using this, and I still haven't reached the bottom of it.

  • So this is a eye shadow palette.

  • This one is called be stunning.

  • So Lila B has a like a kit you can use, which is really great, because each one of these products is something that works well together.

  • Each one of them is also great, because when you just lay on your countertop, it just looks really beautiful, like it's intentionally supposed to be there when in reality it's just life and you're living it and you're not putting your makeup away.

  • In fact, this is part of a three piece kit.

  • So this was the eye shadow.

  • And then it comes with a powder.

  • And then somewhere in the depths of my purse is the lip cheek duo.

  • But I love the combination.

  • The colors are amazing again.

  • Very neutral palette, you know.

  • And so, because of the colors are close together.

  • It's okay if you're brush gets into the other one's a little bit.

  • They all just go together very well.

  • This is also a really luxury gift to give someone because of the way that it feels when you hold it.

  • It's supposed to represent a river rock, which is why it's shaped like this, and it feels heavy, like a stone.

  • So it's just a nice experience, so definitely check out their whole site.

  • I know that there's something on there that you love.

  • Okay, this one I've been so excited to try.

  • This is another gift for myself.

  • I'm not gonna lie, but this is from La Boh, and it's a face mask that's made with charcoal.

  • And any time that I've used a charcoal face mask, my skin looks so much better.

  • Actually, I've used just raw, like live charcoal or sorry activated charcoal that I put in with water and mix up.

  • And it's just something that I can put on my skin, and it's just so detoxifying and purifying and so from ever having any sort of a breakout, then I'll do that.

  • In fact, this is such a side note.

  • I'm really allergic to mosquito bites.

  • And when I was growing up my aunt, she said she would wrap up my mosquito bites with live like activated charcoal and let it sit there and my rescue if I would completely just stop swelling and stuff.

  • That is the power that I have realized.

  • I love with charcoal on my skin, and that's why I went ahead and got this.

  • So this is a face mask with charcoal, and I believe Shea butter off account oil, bitter almond extract, cocoa butter so detoxify eyes and purifies, and you leave it on for about 10 minutes and you can use it a couple times a week.

  • Yeah, ultimately, I think that this would make a really fun gift.

  • Masks are a great idea for gift.

  • So if you've been following this channel for awhile, you might remember when I met recommended last year.

  • The Slip brand, which makes like eye masks and pillow cases that are made out of silk.

  • And so I've had to include it again this year.

  • So this is the slip silk sleep mask, So hard does it, and it's great because this one is in gold, so it's very luxurious looking.

  • The reason why you should consider a silk sleep mask and pillowcase is really because it's great tohave an anti frizz option for your hair or your eye.

  • What your eyes don't need anti friends, but your pillowcase would be great for that.

  • And then for the sleep mask.

  • It's great because it's not going to cause any sort of irritation or puffiness or anything like that.

  • I think it even helps with wrinkles, and so that's why I opt for silk when I'm looking for those types of things, so I'm going to be giving this one.

  • The way I take care of mine is I will just wash it in cold water with delicate soap I like to use will light.

  • They have a delicate one.

  • I can leave a link down the description below, and then you just air dry it and used again like the next week or whatever.

  • So that is how I use mine there.

  • This one, of course, is just the sleep mask, but you can get the option where it's like a kit that includes the pillow cases.

  • Well, I'm a big fan of giving nail polish as a gift.

  • I think that it's something that people can easily use or even re gift if they wanted to, and they didn't like the color.

  • But also it just fits well in a stocking.

  • And it's not, you know, crazy, expensive.

  • But this option is from more of a small company, and I'm going to be doing a shop small video soon so I will hold off on going into tons of detail today.

  • But this is from J.

  • Hannah, and she has a lot of like jewelry, but The one thing that I love about the nail polish is is just the beautiful color.

  • I've been using it, like all week so far on the gold, and I'm just absolutely loving it.

  • It's a very like sheer color, so it's almost like having a clear coat.

  • But just having a little bit of sparkle in a very minimal way is a beautiful look this time of year.

  • And then also, I love thes like I don't even know how to describe the color.

  • It's not quite a tan or blush, but it's not even like a mob.

  • It's just it's just the most perfect and subtle color for a nail polish, and I just love it so much.

  • So I'll leave links in the description below where you can find these exact colors, and you couldn't find out more about this next on my next with you.

  • As for perfume, there's one that I've had on my radar for a while, So Zach got it for me.

  • This year's that this one I'm super excited to put onto my counter, and it's such a beautiful scent as well as this is Gabrielle by Chanel.

  • So Gabrielle was of course, the name that Chanel was called by her closest friends and relatives, and the way that would describe the scent is very light and floral, almost a little bit of a musk to it.

  • This is a very symbolic bottle.

  • Not only is the name very symbolic of someone who's very close additional, but then also, these four points here represents the four different floral notes that are in this, and they all lead to 1/5 floral note.

  • That is how they all come together.

  • It's more imaginary in that way.
