Who doesn’t love getting a fabulous beauty gift under the tree on Christmas? I know I do! So, if you need a few beauty gift ideas for the holidays, you have come to the right place!

There are so many fun and fabulous beauty gifts out there for the holiday season; it can be overwhelming! When shopping for a beauty gift, it’s always good to look for sets which contain items most people use such as hand cream, lip balm, shower gel, and varieties of perfume. It can be hard to buy things like foundation, setting powder, eyeliner, eye shadow, and blush. These items often need to be color tested on someone’s skin in order to know if they will look good.

If you are set on getting makeup for the beauty guru on your Christmas or holiday list, then look for makeup types or gift sets which work well with all skin colors and types. The types of makeup gifts which are usually a safe bet include lipstick sets, or eye shadow palettes with more than five colors.

I found a few fabulous beauty gift sets and beauty gifts ideas around the web, and assembled them into this post. I hope you love them! Better yet, I hope the beauty fan on your holiday gift list loves them too! So, without further ado, here are some fun beauty gift ideas for the 2018 holiday gift giving season!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the holidays!



Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod body lotion review

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you may have already figured out how much I love Molton Brown! I use their shampoo, conditioner, hand wash, and now, Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod body lotion!

Living in California, I spend a lot of time in the sun, in the pool, and outside in general. My three kids keep me moving, and as a result, my skin gets dry. There is nothing like pool chemicals, salt water, sun exposure, and more to wreak havoc on skin!

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try Molton Brown’s body lotion. As a huge fan of the brand, I anticipated loving the body lotion. I was not disappointed!

Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod body lotion turned out to be exactly what my skin needed. It has been helping keep my skin nourished; especially after a day in the sun! I can say goodbye to dry skin! Love that!

The Pink Pepperpod scent is just as fabulous as the body lotion itself. The scent is sweet, spicy and rich; I love it!

Top notes: fiery pink pepper

Middle notes: ginger

Base notes: rich patchouli

Pink Pepperpod can be found in many Molton Brown products including candles, body wash, hand cream, eau de toilette, and in gift sets! The gift sets will be perfect for this upcoming holiday season.

Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod body lotion is a new staple in my beauty collection. I definitely want to try the body lotion in other scents; as well as try out more Pink Pepperpod scented products! I’m in love!

I rate Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod body lotion five out of five stars!

Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod nourishing body lotion can be found online here.

Molton Brown body wash review

Molton Brown’s collection of bath and shower gels offer beautiful scents infused into a luxurious gel which is moisturizing, and gets you squeaky clean. Love that!

I use Molton Brown’s bath and shower gel every morning when I take a shower. Every time I use up a bottle, I always find a new scent to buy for my replacement bottle. It is entirely possible I have used every scent Molton Brown produces!

Now that my kids are in elementary school, it has become easier to travel with them. This means I have had to keep a good stock of travel bath products on hand for weekend getaways by car, and air-travel. My go-to brand for travel toiletries has become Molton Brown. They have everything I need in travel sizes! My favorite travel kit is this one, it has my daily shampoo and conditioner from home, but in travel sizes! The kit also has two shower gel bottles which smell fantastic. It is the ideal travel kit!

Molton Brown’s travel kits are also ideal for gift giving. The kits come in either a beautiful gift box, or travel bag. This makes the gift presentation as fabulous as the products themselves. Love that!

As we head into warmer weather, why not try out a new, fresh scent for your shower from Molton Brown! Here are a few of my favorites from Molton Brown. Also, be sure to check out for the entire collection!
