Christmas Wish List: Skincare

With Christmas approaching quickly, the time to shop for gifts is rapidly shrinking.  Leading up to the holidays I am going to be brining you fashion, beauty, cooking, & crafting Christmas Wish Lists, that will hopefully help you when you're out doing your shopping or putting together your own Christmas List.  I am going to start off with a skincare wish list that is filled with items that will work to give you radiant skin all year round.  The items range from an affordable facial cleansing brush to more luxe items that are maybe not something you would typically buy for yourself.   These 12 dreamy items are all things I would love to have in my medicine cabinet.
1. Dr. Dennis Gross Steamer Solutions
Steamers are an essential part of a spa facial, this at home steamer will help to open pores & deliver deep hydration to skin.  Sephora's website explains that "it works to infuse hydration, clear the complexion, enhance product penetration, & soothe & promote relaxation."  
2. Olay Professional Holiday-Ready Radiance Kit
This is a less expensive alternative to the much raved about Clarisonic brush.  Aside from the price difference you can also change the batteries on the Olay version, which in my book is a major bonus.
3. Philosophy Purity Made Simple
A best seller at Sephora, this cleanser will deeply cleanse your skin, without drying it out.
4. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula
This two step system delivers a powerful at home facial peel. says that this much buzzed about system works to "reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size, create a more even skintone, and brighten the complexion," giving you a gorgeous glow.
5. StriVectin-EV Get Even Dark Circle Corrector 
StriVectin is well known for their potent formulas & this eye cream is known to really get rid of dark under eye circles, that we would all like to disappear.
6. GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment
A much loved face mask, this will work to fight most common skin concerns including whiteheads, blackheads, & discoloration.  GlamGlow's special Activated-X Charcoal works to pull out all impurities leaving skin incredibly clean.
7. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster
This serum is packed with the powerful antioxidant Vitamin C that will work to brighten your skin & deliver other amazing benefits. 
8. Josie Maran 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil Light
This is a lighter version of the original 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil.  When applied regularly it will work to reduce sebum production while moisturizing skin.
9. Philosophy Hope in a Jar
Sephora explains that this is "A cult-favorite moisturizer that gently hydrates, exfoliates, and protects the skin."  Is there really anything more to say?
10. Murad. Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30+++
A perfect day time lotion, the Vitamin C it contains gives an extra boost to the SPF in the formula.  This will work to moisturize your skin throughout the day & to really protect it from the environmental irritants our skin faces on a daily basis. 
11. Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder SPF 45
This powder formula is much more accommodating for everyday wear then thick & sticky traditional sunscreen.  Wear this all year round (no matter the season!) to really protect your skin from harmful & damaging sun rays.
AmorePacific Moisture Bound Spa Kit
Sephora has such fun 'Value Packs' for everything from makeup to skincare.  This kit basically has everything you need for an at home facial that will work to deliver intense moisture and reveal radiant skin.

All of these skincare goodies will make greats presents, whether it's for someone special or yourself!  Any of these products will work to give you gorgeous skin.  Which product is on your wish list?

  1. Thanks for sharing these products.

    Checkout the Thanksgiving $75 Giveaway on my blog. Great for Black Friday.
    Hope you had a great weekend!

  2. I live by 8 and 9! I use a different brand of 100% argan oil (Skin Owl) - but 4 drops in the morning makes your face feel so nice and actually stops me from being greasy! And then Hope in a Jar has been my night routine for 2 years and I adore it! It feels like the most lovely airy mousse... it's great!

  3. The philosophy hope in a jar looks amazing, I agree!
