There’s no better gift than that of self-love, especially for the ones that always take care of you, like your mom, your sister, your significant other or your best friend.

Finding the right skincare products for your loved ones can be a challenge, especially when it comes to narrowing it down to something that would actually be beneficial for their skin and match their lifestyle. But worry no more- we’ve put together a special Essence Gift Guide with our top picks from face to body care, that are sure to have everyone on your Christmas list absolutely loving you, and looking extra radiant this Holiday Season!

For The Self Care Lover 

These picks are for that one person that is all about self-care and is obsessed with everything skincare. If they’re always diligent with their sunscreen and antioxidant serums, then I can guarantee they’ll absolutely love these products- if they’re not already using some of them or have them on their wishlist!

111Skin Rose Gold Face Mask, or as we like to call it “ facial in a mask” is the perfect 20-minute treatment for radiant skin before an event, or a night out- or New Year’s Eve.

Huile Detente Nourishing Body Oil is incredibly indulgent and aromatic- for the softest and naturally glowing skin ever.

For the Minimalist

This guide is for the one that likes to keep it minimal and effective.

Bioglycolic Cleanser doubles as an exfoliant and a cleanser that is not too harsh on the skin and cleanses the pores from within for. No more blackheads in 2024!

C-Esta Face Serum, one of the most effective Vitamin C serums on the market AND it smells amazing! They’ll reach for it every single morning.

Lastly, Elta MD Clear is the most lightweight SPF ever! It also doubles as a moisturizer and most importantly will never leave them with that white sunscreen cast that we all hate. It’ll be their new skincare addiction, and so so good for their skin.

For the Frequent Flyer

We all have that friend that’s always catching a flight somewhere. This gift guide is for that special someone who loves to explore the world, and we’re here to make sure they do it with glowing skin.

L’ Eauxigenante is a skin savior, especially when it comes to flights- where the air is much drier and the skin is in desperate need of oxygen and hydration. It’s a fresh moisturizing mist packed with antioxidants and an oxygenating “anti-pollution” complex that will leave the skin hydrated, plump and deeply nourished.

111skin sub zero eye patches for the long flights to keep eyes refreshed and free of puffiness and irritation.

Creme VIP 02 is called the flyer’s cream for a reason. Packed with an encapsulated oxygenating complex (quite literally bubbles of oxygen inside the cream!) it’s set to nourish the skin and protect it from the dry airplane air and pollution. They’ll be landing with the most glowing skin!

EltaMD Physical for sun protection, especially on a flight where the UV exposure is 90% more intense than on the ground! For longer day flights make sure to reapply.
