12 Best Beauty Gifts I Ever Received


woman in mirror makeup

When it comes to beauty, there are so many products to choose from that it can be overwhelming. What looks best? What will work for my skin? What is worth the splurge? So I asked several women who know all about great beauty products to tell me what are their favorites.

Since they always seem to have that "secret" on looking amazing no matter how much sleep they did or didn't get, we all deserve to know. Many of these products were discovered because they were a gift, which they ended up having to continue to purchase for themselves -- or giving as a gift to others. Prepare to fill up your holiday wish list or pick up some fantastic stocking stuffers for your best friends.

What makes your must-have beauty list? Which of these products are you most excited to try (or wish you could get as a gift)?

 I'd like to try the purity cleanser. I have sensitive skin and this sounds like it would be good.

It depends on what it is and who it's from. My mom is the ONLY person that knows what color foundation I need, so if anyone but her bought that, I'd have to through returning it. Some of my friends think things smell lovely that I think smells like a skunk holding roses, I wouldn't want them buying me scented things, lol.

I'd try most of the things on that list. The lip colors would have to be a more neutral color before I'd try those, though, lol. Red isn't my thing.

I always wear moisturizer, and that's usually about it.  I don't think any of those would be worth someone spending that much, but I like the tinted lip treatment.

Not unless it is shower gels.

Only if I've specifically asked for it.  Due to allergies and sensitivities, I prefer to pick out my own beauty products.

I dont mind getting beauty products as gifts, my mom has gotten me lipglosses and nailpolish. I've received perfumes before but only after I already told them exactly what i wanted.

Oh, I ADORE FRESH brand stuff.  One year for Housekeepers day our bosses gave us gift sets that had some small bottles and I loved using it.  Just too cheap to pay for it!  I love beauty stuff as gifts.

Yes! Beauty products are so expensive anyway & I love trying new things so I'd accept any type of beauty product as a gift!
