Holiday 2017 Gift Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re excited to celebrate with a slew of get-gorgeous beauty products designed to make you look and feel your best. We aren’t just limited to cosmetics, skin care, and hair care, either—beauty doesn’t discriminate, after all. We’ve also got glam goodies for the home. Most importantly, there’s something for every single person on your list. Here’s what we’re loving this holiday season.

 

 

For Luxe Travels…

Perfect for jetting off to Europe during spring, the John Masters Organics Essential Travel Kit for Hair and Body ($24.99) contains everything needed to get through the trip in style. Tucked inside the sleek zippered pouch are two-ounce bottles of geranium/grapefruit body milk, geranium/grapefruit body wash, lavender rosemary shampoo, and citrus/neroli detangler. Not only will they feel fabulous, they’ll also smell incredible.

 

For Upscale Cleansing…

Who knew makeup removal could be such a posh experience? With the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Cleansing Butter ($35.99) in her arsenal, she’ll never go to bed without washing her face again. Made with nourishing turmeric, hydrating chamomile, and gentle honey, this lovely blend melts on contact to effectively remove all traces of makeup, debris, and impurities. It even looks gorgeous, something that can’t be said for the boring tubes crowding her makeup cabinet.

 

For Bathing Beauties…

Showering is infinitely more enjoyable when there’s something wonderfully scented awaiting you. That’s why Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Soapy Suds ($26.99) is a guaranteed gift winner. The body wash is not only packed with uplifting notes of crisp citrus and awakening spices, but it’s also perfect for brightening up those tired, bleary-eyed mornings when nothing seems possible without a shower. This is the ultimate lift-me-up, and the scent is versatile enough for both men and women to enjoy.

 

For Makeup Junkies…

What do you give the makeup junkie who has everything? Try the Youngblood Glowy Cheek Essentials Kit ($39.99). It’s filled with everything she needs to achieve a warm, healthy, bright complexion. The set includes a creamy blush in a rich shade of coral-pink, plus a blush brush and a radiant moisturizing tint designed to drench the skin with hydration while also leaving behind a hint of natural, luminous color. During winter, it’s one of the easiest ways to brighten up.

 

For Happy Homes…

Whether for the hostess or the new homeowner, the NEST Fragrances Luxury Votive Gift Set ($40.99) is the ultimate surprise in every way. Packed inside a gorgeous gift box are six mini votive candles in bamboo, grapefruit, Sicilian tangerine, ocean mist/sea salt, cedar leaf/lavender, and Moroccan amber. Each votive is housed in a sleek black container that adds a touch of subtle sophistication to any room, from the kitchen to the bedroom to the bathroom.

 

For Skin Saviors…

We all know that one person who tries every single new skin care product on the market. The NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device ($136.99) is the best possible surprise for anyone obsessed with a great complexion. On contact with the skin, the portable machine delivers gentle microcurrents that work to effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With regular use, the appearance of the skin’s tone is also improved. The set includes a primer gel to make it easy to use.

 

For OMG Hair…

If you or someone you love absolutely covets magazine cover-worthy hair (and really, who doesn’t?), the Bio Ionic Whisper Light Dryer ($104.89) is practically essential. It delivers high-powered heat in shorter-than-average time, meaning that drenched hair is no match for this wonder tool. In addition to its quick-dry functionality, it also performs in relatively quiet mode. The ionic feature ensures that hair feels softer and stays in better shape, even with regular usage and exposure to heat.

Skincare 101: Why You Need to Add Collagen to Your Routine

of collagen as the glue that keeps your skin strong and elastic. As we age, our natural collagen production slows, which results in those pesky fine lines and wrinkles that are so stubborn and often difficult to control. Lack of collagen can also cause skin to sag, which is another key sign of aging. You may also experience a reduction of this vital protein if you smoke, ingest lots of sugar, or spend excessive time in the sun.

The good news is that you can still revitalize your skin by increasing its exposure to products that are infused with collagen. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we’re big believers in the power of collagen and its ability to transform your skin. Here are our favorite products, all formulated to give aging skin the necessary boost it needs to achieve a more youthful, fresher complexion.

The Murad Age Reform Rapid Collagen Infusion ($59.99) is ideal for use on the face and neck, two key areas where signs of aging are most prominent. This product is known for its ability to work faster than average, which means that within a couple of hours of smoothing the lotion on, your skin will feel smoother and look marvelously better. The lightweight lotion is designed to plump up thinned out skin and restore a radiant look. It’s packed with antioxidants, which help combat harmful free radicals that contribute to ongoing signs of aging. It’s also a powerful moisturizer—and remember, the softer your skin, the younger it looks.

Don’t forget about your lips, which are equally susceptible to aging due to collagen loss. The Murad Age Reform Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips ($22.99) is designed for easy use and promises big results. Fine lines on the lips will be a memory after you smooth on this gloss-like balm that is infused with moisturizing hyaluronic acid and plumping mustard sprouts, which improve circulation so that your lips look fuller and healthier. If your lips are naturally dry, you’ll appreciate the addition of shea butter—it’s extremely potent and leaves lips pillow-soft to the touch.

It’s clear to see why collagen is such an essential part of the skin’s overall health. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find a wide variety of products infused with this very necessary ingredient. Shop them all here!

Mid-Day Refresh: How to Touch Up Your Makeup in a Rush

You’ve got places to go, things to do, and people to see. Where does your makeup routine factor into the schedule? If you’re anything like us, you usually need to refresh your look a bit by midday. We’re here to share several helpful tips to minimize the time it takes you to usually revamp your complexion. Here, how we pull it all together even in the midst of a crazy day.

Invest in a Crazy Good Concealer

If your goal is to minimize imperfections and perfect your skin, your best bet is to invest in a concealer that is designed to hide everything from dark circles to ruddiness. We love bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($18.99). Available in four versatile shades, it features a lightweight consistency. When applied, it smoothes and drenches skin with moisture, conceals precisely what you want to hide, and nourishes to reveal a brighter, healthier complexion with regular use.

 

Brighten Up with Tinted Moisturizer

By midday, your entire complexion could look a little sallow. Forget about starting afresh with every single product in your beauty routine. Just whip out a product like Jane Iredale Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer ($30.99). Not only is it infused with protective SPF 15, but it also moisturizes skin and leaves behind a hint of color that helps banish imperfections with a natural finish.

 

Put On a Kiss of Color

Sometimes all you really need is a pop of color on your lips to shake things up after a busy morning. In fact, that’s often all you need to feel more pulled together before a big meeting or gathering with friends for lunch. Slick on Tigi Cosmetics Diamond Lipstick ($17.99), available in eight shades and perfect for livening up your look when you need something peppy to perk things up.

 

Warm Up Your Complexion

Particularly helpful during the cooler months, Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush ($20.99) will quickly warm up apale complexion. Just smudge it onto your cheekbones and blend, blend, blend to achieve a natural glow that brightens your face and gives winter paleness a little nudge.

 

Liven Up Your Lids with Cream

If you’re focused on playing up your eyes, you don’t want to spend half of your lunch hour applying primer, shadow, liner, and mascara. Keep the routine simple by touching up your lids with Tigi Cosmetics Cream Eyeshadow ($13.99). Thanks to its crease-free formula, it slicks right on and stays put without budging—and it leaves behind a gorgeous shimmer, too.

How To: Get Your Guy A Gift He Will Actually Use

It can be real tough to get it right when it comes to gift giving for a husband, boyfriend, father, or friend. Instead of buying the same old thing (like a tie that they’ll wear once), I think the trick is to think about useful and practical gifts for men. So, instead of buying men gifts you think they’ll like because you do, buy them something that they’ll actually use in their day-to-day lives. Here are some ideas to help you surprise that special guy in your life.

 

Guys love grooming more than they like to admit. The Jack Black First Class Five Travel Set ($47.99) comes with five skincare essentials to keep your man well-groomed and looking his best on-the-go. Make this a stocking stuffer and watch him as he takes pride in using it!

 

Another great option could be the Johnny B A.M. After Shave Spray ($12.89) It will make shaving feel extra luxurious for him. Think hot shaves at the barbershop, but right from the comfort of their home. Plus, you will love the scented notes of citrus on his face. This aftershave spray also closes skin pores opened by the hot water from his shave, to keep his skin looking great all day after.

 

 

Let’s face it, men can be more than a bit touchy about their hair. They don’t want to use a million and one products to get the right look. Instead get them the only product they will need to get their look. The Short Sexy Hair Hard Up Holding Gel ($9.99) provides an extra-firm hold, especially for short hairstyles. Trust me, he will love this product for everyday use.

Shakespeare famously wrote, “He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man.” That may be a little extreme, but if your man happens to measure up against the bard’s beard bar, he certainly would appreciate a potion like Jack Black Beard Oil ($22.99). This beard oil is formulated with kalahari melon oil, vitamin E, brown algae, and carrot extract to condition facial hair and nourish skin underneath.

Now that you have some gift ideas, you can surprise that special guy for the holidays with a gift he will truly appreciate!
