Beauty Stocking Stuffers For The Holiday Season

Beauty Stocking Stuffers For The Holiday Season

One of the best parts of the holiday season is the little things, like stocking stuffers! (Especially beauty stocking stuffers!) Fortunately, beauty supplies come in small but mighty packages. I’ve put together a list of some trending products and trinkets for you to add to the stockings of EVERYONE on your list! Read ahead for some fabulous beauty stocking stuffers.

 

Aromatherapy Bracelet

 

Crafted of porous lava rock to capture and carry the scent of therapeutic essential oils, the Aromatherapy Bracelet  allows you to enjoy aromatherapy on the go. Simply add essential oil to the lava rocks and allow to dry.

There are many different styles and prices to choose from.  You can find my list of favorites by clicking here.

Pair it with the Royal Spa Essential Oils Set and you will be giving her a gift she’ll be sure to LOVE!

 

 

 

Jade Roller

 

 

 

Jade rollers are trending! These little powerhouses are insta-friendly. They de-puff your face in seconds.  They’re a quick, easy cure for daily skincare struggles like dark under-eye circles and puffiness from fatigue. The increase in circulation can also help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. I recommend it with Lumière de Vie Eye Balm &  Lumiere De Vie Serum Concentrate (which also make great stocking stuffers *hint hint*)

 

Here are a few Jade Rollers for you to choose from: Click Here

 

Lumière de Vie Konjac Facial Sponge Set

Tell your recipient that these work perfect with a cleanser to wash your beautiful face! Scrub your way to beautifully cleansed skin with Lumière de Vie Konjac Facial Sponge Set. Made from the root of the konjac plant, these soft sponges gently slough away makeup, dirt and oil while gently exfoliating skin for a more balanced, rejuvenated complexion. Pair with your favorite cleanser and indulge skin in a luxurious spa-like facial. This is also great for both men and women!

Cellular Laboratories® De-Aging Lifting Facial Sheet Masque

Sheet masks are all of the rage right now! Over time, skin begins to lose the integrity it once knew when younger. Pores enlarge, wrinkles and fine lines deepen. The more makeup and debris that build up, the quicker these signs of aging appear. Deep clean and lessen the effects of these age-telling signs with a masque. Pull out debris with an anti-aging formula. Work to maintain smooth skin and lessen the appearance of wrinkles by using Cellular Laboratories.

Revolutionary, purifying sheet masque helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, promotes normal circulation and promotes softer skin texture overnight. Infused with Matrixyl® 3000 — which supports normal collagen production, and supports natural skin structure as it lifts, firms, brightens and hydrates distressed skin, restoring that youthful-looking glow.

Treat them (or yourself) to this calming sheet masque. Restore your glow and youthful complexion as the masque penetrates the layers of the skin. Recommended to be used two to three times per week and convenient for travel, this small pouch packs a large punch. Skin needs special attention for the abuse it endures throughout everyday activity. Bring back the moisture, support collagen and increase smoothness with Cellular Laboratories De-Aging Lifting Facial Masque.
