What a year 2020 has been! We’re nearing the end and hoping for good things in 2021, and while we’re coming to the end of the year, we thought we all deserved a little treat yourself moment for making it through! We’ve rounded up 10 of our fave luxe launches of 2020 that are sure to make you feel good if you indulge. So, from hair gadgets and bomb skincare formulas to divine candles and stunning makeup, here are 10 gorgeous luxury beauty products you should treat yourself (or a loved one) to.
It’s your girl, Jackie Aina, coming through with the holiday candles you never knew you needed! Anyone who’s watched even just a few of YouTuber, Jackie Aina’s videos knows that she is a candle connoisseur. Earlier this year she launched her gorgeous Forvr Mood candle collection with four divine scents, and for the holidays she’s lighting it up with a sweet gingerbread collection that’s sure to have you drooling and feeling good. This classic white and gold candle set looks good whatever your décor vibe, and the scents – Gingerbread Traphouse and You Up? – will give you all the festive feels! Think cinnamon, vanilla, buttery caramel, cedarwood and clove notes wafting through your home – yum!
Mutha Body Oil, $104
Your body deserves just as much indulgence as your beautiful face, and this luxurious body oil is a sure-fire way to serve that up! From the stunning metallic violet packaging that feels so luxe to the divinely-scented, 100% botanical dry oil formula that nourishes skin like no other, this is self-care goals. Containing some of the most iconic oils in the biz – rosehip seed oil, sweet almond oil and jojoba – it’s infused with vital nutrients, potent antioxidants, and fatty acids that absorb quickly and leave skin with a dewy, healthy glow. With consistent use, these nourishing, healing ingredients help to smooth, refine, and develop healthy-looking skin.
This utterly addictive fragrance, Déjà Vu White Flower | 57 by KAYALI, is possibly one of our all-time fave scents and the perfect pick me up! This set features a 50ml bottle of Déjà Vu White Flower | 57, a sultry, fresh, bouquet of white florals that combines aromatic sandalwood and fruity notes of white nectarine and orange flower. Finally, notes of jasmine, tuberose, patchouli and gardenia come together to seduce in this unique blend. The set also includes a nourishing, succulently scented hair mist in a lightweight, alcohol-free formula that nourishes the hair with Camelia oil, aloe vera and castor oil while enveloping hair in the delicate, dreamy scent of nostalgia.
These luxe products were created by founder Dana Jackson who decided to create her own skincare solution that would be compatible with her Lupus. This meant creating products that were safe, non-irritating, and non-toxic for the skin to absorb, and wouldn’t challenge the immune system. The result is a “skin, body, and hair rejuvenation line designed to restore, repair, and reverse the toxic effects of environmental hazards, health challenges, stress, and the damage done from countless other unforgiving aspects of our lifestyle.”
These luxurious, all-natural products are loaded with healing ingredients, each chosen for their restorative benefits, and are free from phosphates, parabens, sulfates, gluten, toxins, GMOs, or synthetic colors and fragrances. We love this minis set that includes the Heal Whipped Skin Soufflé , Polish Detoxifying Body Scrub, Indulge Total Body Elixir, Nourish Hair Serum, and the Illuminate Clarifying Face Mask, which allows you to get a taste for all their products, but you can also shop all individually. Each formula is hand-crafted in small batches and sealed in violet-colored glass packaging to protect the formula. This also means that products go out of stock quickly – but don’t worry, they come back – so stay tuned on their social pages for updates if anything is temporarily out of stock.
Foreo UFO 2, $279
If you’re obsessed with sheet masking and love that dewy glow they so often impart, then the Foreo UFO is a device you might have been tempted to try. The UFO 2 combines heating, cooling and T-Sonic pulsations with a full spectrum of healing LED lights to take your sheet mask to a whole new level and push the mask essence further into the skin’s surface. The whole process is also hella’ therapeutic and takes just 90 seconds, which is exactly what us busy people need! And although the device is definitely an investment, in the long run, you’ll save pennies since masks start at $10 for a pack of seven, which works out at around $1.40 per mask.
What’s cool about the UFO 2 is that you can also use it with your other products as well, as it gives you the option to choose a light and temperature so you can create your own customized treatment. I.e., You could select the cooling setting and orange light (great for revitalizing) and use it with your eye cream by gliding the UFO on top to help the cream infuse deeper into the skin.
We’ve all needed to find some way to escape this year, and for us, makeup has been that piece of fun, which is why our new Naughty palette has been our go-to. So, if you’re a lover of all things nude, then prepare to take your nude infatuation to new heights with this naughty re-imagination of our bestselling New Nude palette that packs 18 delicious shades in five ultra-wearable textures. Whether you want to achieve subtle daytime looks or feel empowered with a bold eye in the evening, these shades have been harmoniously curated to (un)dress your eyes and empower you to be your most fierce and confident self.
BeautyBio GloPRO® SCALP MicroTip™ Attachment Head, $55
Okay, 2020 has been an absolute bitch of a year and the stress of it has affected many of us in more ways than one – our hair included (see how stress could have triggered hair fall here). We’ve been using the Beauty Bio dermaroller to encourage our hair growth for years, and they just recently launched an attachment for their cult device that is specifically designed to target the scalp. The GloPRO® SCALP Attachment has cushion-flex engineering and a contoured design to hug the scalp for comfortable, targeted usage with zero tugging or hair breakage. It can be used on uneven or thinning edges, widening part line, loss in hair density from over-styling, post-partum changes, or thinning from age or even stress.
The tiny microneedles create small abrasions that create vertical exfoliation microchannels to reawaken the scalp, creating the optimal environment for hair to grow naturally stronger, thicker, and shinier while it also improves microcirculation to support natural follicular activity. If you don’t already have the device, you can buy the BeautyBio Rejuvenating Scalp + Fuller Hair Therapy Set, $249, which includes the GloPRO® SCALP Microneedling Tool and their Healthy Scalp Serum.
When it comes to skincare, Sisley does not come to play, and although not cheap, this Velvet Sleeping Mask is actually on the lower end of the cost spectrum for the brand! That said, it’s a beautifully soothing and restorative formula that feeds dry skin for an overnight transformation. A cocktail of powerful plant-based key ingredients – like macadamia and cottonseed oils, Kokum butter, Japanese lilyturf and Padina pavonica extracts – intensely nourish and moisturize while Saffron flower extract soothes dry skin and thyme honey restores. Be ready to wake up to incredibly soft, nourished and healthy-feeling skin.
Another skincare brand on a mission and doing something a bit different is KLUR, an eco-conscious skincare brand made in California and lovingly concocted by esthetician and founder Lesley Thornton. Her vision was an ethical, inclusive brand with carefully considered products that make a real difference to you and your skin.
This multivitamin and retinol corrective complex is packed with vitamins, nutrients, and bioactive botanicals that help to improve a congested, lackluster complexion in need of clarity, correction, and dermal repair. Potent vitamins A, C, and B, act fast to help calm inflammation, even skin tone and improve surface clarity. This is the do-it-all serum your nighttime routine is missing.
We love a good beauty tool and this new toy is pretty unique! The brand has created a tool that helps to reduce waste by delivering a tiny 5ml haircare pod that gives up to 40 applications! This cuts back on waste and reduces the number of ingredients needed. The tool uses ultrasonic diffusion that diffuses particles 50 times smaller than a regular spray to create a fine mist that delivers the active ingredients onto the hair in their most concentrated form, leaving every strand of your hair nourished and rejuvenated in just 30 seconds. The powerful formulas, which include a Micellar Water Pre-Shampoo Treatment, Volume Mist LED Hairpod™, and a Shine Diffusion LED Hairpod™, combine with precise delivery to create a performance haircare treatment that is still gentle enough to be used on all hair types.
We also love that as part of the brand’s commitment to sustainability, RÉDUIT offers a simple trade-in program that allows you to recycle used Hairpods™ in exchange for a free product. They also have a similar tool designed for skincare that we’re also super impressed with.
