The ultimate guide
From anti-ageing skincare sets to the prettiest beauty coffrets worthy of keeping after Christmas, this gift guide is made for any lady who's got enviable skin and an exquisite taste. Check out our picks below:
Two things to love about the Estée Lauder Repair + Renew for Radiant, Youthful-Looking Skin Set from the Holiday Collection include: The creative packaging of the box, featuring artist Katie Rodgers' whimsical, ballerina-inspired designs; along with the star products that will guarantee a youthful glow. A must-have is the full-sized bottle of the brand's Advanced Night Repair Serum, and not forgetting the Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion and Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II.
For targeted anti-ageing action, splurge on Secrets de Sothys Coffret Set that includes the Eye Contour Serum and Secrets Cream that's all about optimal comfort in application thanks to its subtle fragrance and velvety texture. If the rose gold coffret doesn't catch your eye, just know that the formula for both products include a multitude of active ingredients that make it the perfect anti-wrinkle and anti-pollution duo.
If you're looking for something more extensive for your recipient to indulge in—we're talking about a full skincare routine, try Shiseido's Timeless Rejuvenation set that has every age-defying product she needs in one box. Primarily filled with essentials from the Future Solution LX range, the 11-piece set everything that she'd need to upgrade her routine, from the Intensive Treatment Mask to the Replenishing Treatment Oil.
Alternatively, you can also opt for SK-II Radiance Aura Set that comes equipped with five skin saviours that she might love. The star of the set is none other than the bestselling Facial Treatment Essence, now available in a limited edition design that comes with three different empowering mantras. The other products in the same set include the Genoptics Aura Essence, Cellumination Mask-In Lotion, Whitening Source Derm Revival Mask, and Cellumination Deep Surge EX (moisturiser).
If you thought anti-ageing skincare is the way to go in reversing the effect of time on your face, just remember that hydration is equally as important. Invest in Clarins Extra Firming Partners comprising of the Extra Firming Day Cream and Extra Firming Night Cream—suitable for all skin types. Made for battling wrinkles along with the effects of pollution and fatigue, these reformulated creams are on our wishlist for good reason.
Anyone who has a soft spot for any skincare that incorporate botanical ingredients would love Sulwhasoo's Essential Duo Holiday Limited—a seven-piece box that's got all the ginseng-infused favourites that we can't get enough of. We're talking the Essential Balancing Water EX, and First Care Activating Serum EX, to the Essential Rejuvenating Eye Cream EX and Firming Cream EX.
Next-level skincare luxury could be an option as well, especially when it's in the form of Clé de Peau Beauté Synactif Exclusive Kit. The chic box features hand-painted strokes of urushi inspired by traditional Japanese craft shikki (lacquerware). The stunner comes with a soap, lotion, daytime moisturiser, night time moisturiser, cream and Rose Synactif eau de parfum—a worhty set that's perfect for traveling as well.
