Arienne’s Gift Guide: 5 Amazing beauty buys

Arienne's Gift Guide: Beauty


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and I don’t know about you, but I’m only about 50% done with my Christmas shopping. So, rather than actually do any shopping, I thought I’d spend some time helping you get through your list this week. Each day, I’ll be presenting a new gift guide that will hopefully help you get it all done in time for the big day! First up, some of my favorite beauty buys that make amazing gifts.  — xxAT

Drybar ‘Smooth Operator’ flat iron, $125 | To put it simply, I can’t live without this flat iron. Smooth, light, perfect. Please give this to someone this Christmas.

Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight body lotion, $39 | I’ve gushed about this miracle worker so many times, you’d think I own stock in the company. It really is that amazing though. Bronze like what.

Jo Malone cologne collection, $110 | No one can master a scent like Ms. Malone. And, because she’s so good, this collection is a bargain — trust me.

SK-II Facial treatment mask, $95 | The price of beauty can be … expensive. But these masks are totally worth it. And, when your recepient opens the box and sees “SK-II” emblazoned across the front, they’ll know what a baller you are.

Kneipp ‘Revive5’ herbal bath oil set, $25 | I love baths more than anyone I know, so I’m always looking for some nice add-ons to make the experience even more relaxing. Kneipp is more than 120 years old and they have a simple, aromatic herbal concoction for everything that ails you.
