I’m not one to get into the Christmas spirit super early. As soon as I hit the stores on Black Friday is when my brain switches into Christmas mode, until then it’s pumpkins, turkey and pie. That was until my boss made mention that there are only three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, and I started to panic just a little. Three weeks?! That’s all?! Is it always like that?! I don’t know, but it doesn’t seem like enough time to accomplish everything on my holiday list.
So, I didn’t start decorating, but I did start thinking about gifts. I was thinking about my sweet momma when I thought about gifting skincare. She’s often asks me what she should use, so I thought why not go ahead and put together what she should use and package it up with a little holiday cheer. Skincare is like the gift that keeps on giving, if you nail their skin needs, they’re going to have beautiful skin all year round.
Starting off, I wanted to give my momma a package of my favorite products.
I often use a nice mix or products, but these four products are my current favorites. I’ve mentioned all of these on the blog before, but in case you’re not familiar, here’s a little rundown of why I think they’re great.
- Total Facial Cleansing Gel is the best cleanser I’ve ever used. It never dries my skin out, year round, and it removes all of my makeup. Even heavy eyeliner and mascara. There are times I’ve been lazy, or left it on the counter instead of in the shower and I’ve used something like shower gel on my face instead and I immediately noticed the difference!
- Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum This serum boosts elasticity and helps your skin hold moisture. In a nutshell, it makes your skin look better! Especially if your skin is dry, I highly recommend this serum.
- Total Antioxidant Facial Serum I notice a difference in my skin when I skimp on using this serum. Just a couple of weeks ago in the thick of skimping on my skincare I looked in the mirror and had all these little lines on my forehead and my skin just looked parched. Just one week of being back in my routine and using this serum with retinol, my skin was smoother and brighter. This is another product that just works! Plus, it’s great under makeup.
- Visibly Moist Toner This product has recently become my MVP with winter skin. In fact, I was thinking of dedicating an entire post to my foundation routine with this toner. My skin is so dry in the cold weather, and my foundation was looking very blah, catching on every line and just looking blah. I started spraying this on my face before my foundation, then also spraying a beauty blender with the toner and dabbing it on top of my foundation and powder. The result, healthy, moisturized, fresh looking winter makeup!
Skin Resource.MD Skincare Kits
Whether it’s your momma, your girlfriend, or your husband/boyfriend – Skin Resource.MD has something for everyone. They do a lot of the heavy lifting for you with their skincare kits. They not only bundle their products to offer you discounts, it helps you know which products work well together for different skin types and issues. Plus, the sets are often discounted even more throughout the year, so watch out for those! I’ll do my best to share their sales through the holiday season on my social accounts. There are ten different kits to choose from, I’ll share three with you here!
I don’t personally have acne, but I have a few friends who struggle with it. I’m thinking this kit may be the perfect gift for them. I can’t attest to how well it works, but I know I love Skin Resource.MD products, and it’s highly reviewed on their website!
The Instant Gratification Kit was one of the very first sets of products I tried from Skin Resource.MD. The three products in this kit are powerful and effective when it comes to smoothing out dull skin! Plus, the Baobab cream is full of a powerful anti-aging oil from the Baobab tree.
This kit is very similar to the Instant Gratification Kit, but instead of Baobab Cream, it has Hyaluronic Serum to boost moisture! These three products together are great for scrubbing away dull dead skin and rehydrating and plumping your skin with hyaluronic acid.
Gifts For Everyone!
These are just three of the ten kits that are available on Skin Resource.MD. You’ll be sure to find something for everyone in your life!
