Sure, our limited-edition Holiday sets are easy on the eyes, straight out of the stocking or gift bag. But there’s more than what meets the eye with our exclusive sets (aside from safer ingredients and sustainable packaging, of course). To prove it, we’re sharing six hacks on how to make the most of these products—which all make great gift ideas for the clean beauty connoisseurs and self-care lovers in your life:
1. There’s a beauty tool for that
Give your fingers a break—Detox and Done Duo is here to give a hand. Our 3-in-1 Facial Tool isn’t just for its Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask counterpart: This smooth, dual-sided silicone tool is compatible with all of our facial masks, serums, and oils—like our best-selling Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum and Counter+ No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil.
Simply dispense or scoop your favorite skin-care product onto the spatula side for even application, and massage it in using the exfoliating bristle side. It’s the beauty tool you never knew you needed—what more could a skin-care lover ask for? Go ahead, give yourself or a loved one the gift of a facial massage with this multitasker.
2. Bring the spa home for the holidays
Soft, hydrated skin is just a soak away with Good Scents Bath Oil Trio, a unique gift idea that lets you customize and switch up your at-home spa night, every night. Pour and unwind with our three aromatherapeutic scents that truly live up to their names:
- Feeling low energy? Give yourself a #betterbeauty boost with Invigorate, composed of rosemary, eucalyptus, and peppermint oils.
- Looking to clear your mind? Add Clarify and its ginger, cedarwood, and coriander oils to the mix.
- Ready to release some tension? Indulge in De-Stress and its calming chamomile, eucalyptus, and patchouli oils.
Pair these scents with Sugarbuff Body Polish in the tub, followed by Melting Body Balm or Luminous Hydration Body Oil after drying off. There you have it—your new go-to bathtime ritual, featuring our Holiday gift set made for every mood.
3. Safer beauty for safe travels
For those who are away for the holidays, we’ve got a few gift ideas in mind that’ll make any jet-setter feel right at home, no matter what the destination: Our Mini Must Haves, Wash & Go Minis, and Clean Dreams Set are all ideal for travel and trial.
They’re TSA-approved, so you can throw them in your carry-on and enjoy clean dreams wherever you’re flying. Oh, and the mini bottles are refillable with our full-sized favorites. Who doesn’t love a sustainable self-care moment?
4. Eyeliner, made easy
Achieving a cat eye is a piece of cake with our Good Glitz Duo. Here’s a tip: Smudge the Noir shade from our talc-free eyeshadow palette along your lash line, then use a wet brush to extend the pigment beyond the lash line for a subtle, smokey cat eye. No more reaching for the makeup remover, which means more time to show off your glam holiday look.
5. Highlight (hack) of the night
There’s always time to add highlight, even when you’re running late for your festivities. A swipe of Think Big All-In-One Mascara, squeeze of The Jellies, and touch of Lid Glow Cream Shadow from the Ready, Set Makeup Trio will get you fresh-faced in a pinch.
But ever have those days when you want a little extra oomph? Our friends from HQ like to dab the leftover Lid Glow Cream Shadow’s shimmery Moonlit shade from their fingers to the high points of their face (think the bridge of your nose and cheekbones) to add more dimension. Let’s just say, the results did not disappoint.
6. Stocking stuffers for every skin type
And last but not least, for the friends and loved ones who have everything: Split up the Clean Sweep Minis set to check off that holiday list. (You can even keep a piece to yourself…your secret’s safe with us.) We’ve got all your bases covered with a cleanser for every skin type: sensitive, blemish-prone, oily—you name it. This lineup of safer skin-care essentials comes in portable sizes, making the perfect thoughtful stocking stuffers.
Now you’re all set to share the #betterbeauty love and keep the excitement going through the holidays and beyond, long after each unboxing, swatch, and selfie. You can’t go wrong when you #giftclean—so go ahead, cross off everyone on that holiday gift list (yourself included).
