Holiday Gift Guide: For the Skincare Junkie Who Has (Almost) Everything
Shopping for a skincare-obsessed guru ranks high on the difficulty scale. There’s a solid chance they’ve already secured the latest and greatest serums and creams, and it’ll take something seriously special to impress.
No sweat. We’ve scoured the beauty sphere for the best of the best. Think out of this world, revolutionary beauty tools, game-changing beauty organizers, and “why didn’t I think of that myself” must-haves. We guarantee there’s something here for the skincare junkie on your list who has (almost) everything.
Your skincare junkie might have a fully loaded skincare shelf, but are they using a humidifier yet? If not, Hey Dewy’s Wireless Facial Humidifier is a no-brainer! Our skin craves moisture – especially in the dry winter months – and this portable option ensures your giftee is never without a nice mist. They can bring it on the plane, put it on their bedside, or keep it at their desk. (BTW, it comes in pink, too!)
Foreo UFO 2, $279
Talk about a serious multi-tasking skincare gadget. Foreo’s brand new UFO 2 combines multiple skincare modalities into one palm-sized tool, including light therapy, cryotherapy, T-sonic pulsations, and thermo-therapy. Each setting works its own magic and even enhances the efficacy of your recipient’s current fleet of skincare products. Basically, you’re gifting them an entire fleet of professional facial treatments.
If the skincare enthusiast in your life has ever worn a sheet mask – and we guarantee they have – then they’re familiar with the woe of having it slip and slide around. This inventive Face Mask Holder makes multi-task masking a breeze. It’s designed to sit on top of sheet masks to keep it in place while improving its efficacy. It can also be worn on top of other skincare products. We recommend pairing it with the WISHFUL Thirst Trap Sheet Mask, $9.
Sephora took some of the most covetable, expensive beauty favorites and put them into one convenient bundle. It includes the following:
· Guerlain L’Or 24K Gold Radiance Primer
· Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream with TFC8® Face Moisturizer
· Tatcha The Deep Cleanse Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser
· Christophe Robin Volume Shampoo Paste with Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts
· Jo Malone London English Pear & Freesia Cologne
· YSL Rouge Pur Couture Satin Lipstick in 70 Le Nu
Each is a generous “sample” size, which means your giftee can get a good feel for which product they may want to go all-in on later.

Dehiya Mihakka Tool, $18
We’re guessing that the skincare aficionado on your shopping list has tried many of the industry’s most popular tools, including gua sha, derma-rollers, and pulsing wands. It’s very possible that the simple Mihakka Tool from Dehiya has escaped them, though! Available in nine naturally dyed colors, this gentle exfoliating tool is handcrafted from terra cotta and then covered in a soft, organic cotton. It’s meant to be used while cleansing your face to help slough off dead skin cells and leave skin clean, clear, and bright.
Here’s a great supplement to any stocking (pun definitely intended)! HUM Nutrition’s tasty collagen fizzes can be dropped into any glass or bottle of water to instantly add a strawberry-lemon flavor while imparting some nutritional goodness. They’re made with premium marine collagen and antioxidant-rich vitamin C, which helps support collagen production, boost skin hydration and protect against free radical damage.
The Box by Dr. Ava, $250
Dr. Ava Shamban is a board-certified dermatologist and arguably one of the most esteemed figures in the skincare industry. Her quarterly subscription box features a robust selection of carefully curated, full-sized skincare products and tools that have her (and other dermatologists’) stamp of approval. The box is a splurge at $250, but the goodies inside retail for about $600. You can gift your recipient a singular box, or if you’re feeling generous you can splurge on all four for $850 (and maybe keep one for yourself!).
Finding a beauty organizer that actually meets your needs is a real struggle, especially if you own more than just a few products. This top-rated organizer from Amazon is legit, though. The primary shelf rotates 360-degrees and is enclosed behind a double door to keep products dry and dust-free. It’s also 7″ high, which is plenty of space for most products. In addition, it features a small, lidded tray on the top and two large doors on the bottom for other beauty loot.
