Gift Guide – Best of Skincare, Bodycare & Haircare

I love receiving gift sets. Not only are they great value, they make quite pretty gifts with the seasonal festive boxes & wrapping!

I’ve curated a few sets from a range of prices depending on the $$$ you might want to spend. Almost all of these are currently 20-25% off so you get to save even more on a box set that’s already good value!

P.S- Everything you see in todays guide are brands I love; and products that work!

  1. Olaplex Healthy Hair Essentials (SGD95 via Sephora SG)

Olaplex does one of these sets every year and they ALWAYS sell out. I make sure I pick this up as soon as it goes on sale. Not only is it perfect for gifting, it’s also great for personal use if you want mini versions of your regular Olaplex haircare range.

Incase you have never tried Olaplex, they are essentially haircare that’s developed for damaged hair.. basically for repairing , nourishing and smoothing frizz.

Currently on sale at Sephora Singapore as well as Cult Beauty (25% off).

2. Clé de Peau beauty The First Step Serum Skincare Set (SGD380 via Sephora SG)

Have you seen CPB’s new holiday packaging? It’s divine! Each year they collaborate with an artist and spoil us with the most gorgeous packaging ever. The First Step Serum Skincare Set contains a full size of one of my favourite products by CPB; The Serum. It also includes three minis for a complete skincare routine so you get the whole Clé de Peau experience.

3. Charlotte Tilbury 3 Magic Steps to Perfect-Looking Skin (£90 on Cult Beauty)

I don’t think of CT as a skincare brand but I do love her Magic Serum for skin prep. It primes the skin but also contain anti-ageing ingredients which is a win win. The texture is very refined.. so luxurious as it glides on the skin; it’s light enough for even oily skin types but also nourishing for dry skin as well. Set comes with two additional mini creams as well.

Currently on sale on Cult Beauty which is having their 25% off Black Friday Event.

4. Sunday Riley The Big Glow Deluxe Good Genes Kit (£159.20)

When I saw this kit on Space NK I knew immediately it HAD to be in my gift guide. Good Genes is already a cult product but this supersized version (100ml) with amazing limited edition packaging is everything I look for in a skincare gift set. I have not seen it anywhere else but luckily, Space NK has 20% off on this product. GRAB IT NOW! Set comes with a mini Pink Drink (25ml) and a Tidal Water Cream (15g).

Perfect for your bestie or any die hard Good Genes lover.

5. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Magic (£44)

Glow Recipe makes great skincare for younger skin. If you are looking for something effective yet affordable, I love this little set which makes a perfect gift to anyone who’s getting into skincare. Whether it’s for someone in their 20’s or early 30’s this set would be ideal for maintaining glowing skin while refining pores.

The set comes with a PHA/BHA Toner (150ml) + Niacinamide Dew Drops serum (15ml) + Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore Tight Facial (25ml).

6. Percy & Reed All Kinds Of Wonder-ful Hair Set (SGD112)

Percy & Reed holiday sets are great for gifting. Not only do they come in beautiful packaging, this set also includes a sleeping mask that’s just too cute! I’m obsessed! Two of the products are full sized and two are minis. Not necessarily great value when you consider the full sized items each at SGD40 and extra minis. But it is worth grabbing while Sephora has their Black Friday sale.

7. Heure Ageless Night Treatment Moisturiser (SGD190)

If there’s one luxe item worth gifting as a stand alone product, the Heure night cream would be my pick. Now that Heure retails at Sephora you can save on luxe items like this and grab it for less $$$. This anti-ageing night cream will help maintain youth by firming skin and also smoothing wrinkles. I love the texture. It’s not too light, also not greasy. I’ll be gifting one to mom this Christmas since I loved mine soo much!

8. Augustinus Bader Body Care set (Body Cream + Body Oil)

If you are on the look out for luxury bodycare, it doesn’t get more luxe than an AB bodycare kit. I’ve got the Body Lotion in my basket and it’ll be a gift from ‘me-to-me’ this Christmas. Augustinus Bader is renowned for a formula that helps regenerate skin, restoring it back to it’s youthful healthy self.

Available directly via the Augustinus Bader site and also Cult Beauty (where you can currently get 25% off)

9. Omorovicza Perfecting Duo (£50)

A perfectly curated no fuss duo is always a winner. This kit contains one of my favourite mists of all time – the Queen Of Hungary Mist (infused with orange blossom) + a perfecting lip balm to keep lips smooth and plump all day.

Did I mention the pink packaging is just SO cute?!

10. Augustinus Bader Body Lotion (£75)

If you are gifting a Body Lotion.. might as well make it substantial.

I love a luxe cream to pamper myself and so far i’ve been a die hard fan of the Clé de Peau one. At SGD 150 a pop, it’s pricey but over time you do notice a difference in skin texture. The new AB Body Lotion is a wonderful investment for body care and makes a luxe gift for siblings and anyone ultra special.

Currently retailing at $95 on the Augustinus Bader site, and Cult Beauty.

11. Biossance Overachiever Gift set (SGD89 via Sephora SG)

Biossance is a brand that’s new-ish to my regime and so far everything I have tried has been exceptional. As someone who looks for clear results, the brand though may not come across as ‘exciting’ does deliver some stellar products. I love their Lactic Acid serum and the eye cream is one of the best i’ve tried for dull/dry under eyes. If you are new to the brand or plan on gifting skincare, this set is a great introduction to the brand.
