Stuck on what to get the girl who has her skincare regimen down to a science? Today I have rounded up the best of the best in skincare for the Skincare Guru Gift Guide. Keep reading and see if any of your favorites made the cut. -Makeup Life and Love- Skincare Guru Gift Guide- Beauty

Seriously you guys can you believe that in less than 10 days it will be Christmas? It never fails during the holiday shenanigans between the parties and photos sessions- the unexpected always pops up- for me it’s in the form of a HUGE pimple, and I mean the kind that HURT under the skin! As you all know I am a MAJOR skincare junkie, so this gift guide has a special place in my heart- however if you are stuck on what to get the skincare obsessed maven in your life, then I have a treat for you. Today’s gift guide, is rounding up a few of my absolute favorites in skincare offerings ranging from awesome multi-masking* to a body oil that will literally have you smelling like a heavenly rose garden, or the most perfect skincare device to help your products absorbs better. So if you have a friend who is obsessed with her 10 step skincare regimen or indulging on a weekend pamper, then this is the one for you to read,  let’s dig in…

When it comes to skincare I am often SUPER particular at what I use. Knowing my skincare type has helped tremendously in learning what things my skin likes and dislikes- BIG TIME.  I have learned over the past year, that I really enjoy a mid-week skincare pamper and so does my skin. Whether it’s starting with a solid steam or multi-masking with various masks to achieve the outer glow I am always seeking, skincare just makes me giddy.  

The one thing I always try to be is OVER prepared when it comes to skincare. Whether it is a quick overnight trip where you need your trusted overnight skincare essentials, or my favorite brightening duo* which seriously will CHANGE YOUR LIFE, or my new favorite natural skincare line of elixirs & serums*, or ensuring I am party perfect at all times. Skincare is one thing that you can never be OVER prepared with. If the skincare lover in your life has a 10-step skincare regimen then this set of fabulousness they will need ASAP!

O-M-G you guys, 2016 was seriously the year was the year of skincare gadgets, and let me just say I am not sure if 2017 can top these awesome gadgets.  From this at-home dermaplanning device* helps keep the skin in tip top shape as it exfoliates the skin effortlessly, while this awesome device helps skincare absorb into the skin thanks to microspheres and ultrasound energy all the way to a tried and true favorite- at-home facial lifting device and the LED light therapy device that has my skin fighting off Father Time nightly- seriously 2016 literally has the best skincare gadgets. The skincare lover we all know would LOVE any of these awesome devices- trust me- I might have 2 of them on my wishlist this year!  So there you have it a few of my current favorites in skincare that will help keep your skincare lover prepared from head to toe. Don’t forget to shop my skincare guru favorites below, and check out all the other gift guides I have put together this year! You can also view all my holiday gift guides on my HOLIDAY tab as well!

Plus scared of it lol. So I’d love to have it for my forehead! I’m giddy about this giveaway! It’s such an awesome assortment!

  • Kenya F

    My favorite skincare item at this moment is Sephora Mattifying Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum. It truly keeps my skin very moisturize even now in the freezing cold of NYC.

  • Cassie Eastman

    This giveaway is amazing! I’d love to try the Clarisonic MIA Fit, and the Pixi Beauty Skin Treats Glow Mud Cleanser sounds so good. My favorite skin care product right now is Derma E Firming DMAE Moisturizer. It keeps my skin hydrated without being greasy!

  • tannawings

    ellen beck

  • Amy Cooley

    Wow, so many fabulous beauty products to try! Thanks and Merry Christmas!

  • tannawings

    Dr. brandt Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask sounds like a winner. I need to bathe in it.

  • Katy

    I’m currently loving the Egg Mallow Cream by Too Cool for School. I received the sample in my Sephora Play! Box and fell in love right away. It is supposed to replace five skincare products, but what I find is that it’s that perfect moisturizer to use when you just want to wash your face and add one cream. I can get away with using it alone at night and still wake up with great skin. It has really helped with my dry patches I get this time of year.

  • Danielle

    My winter skin could really use this!

  • Kenya F

    Bliss steep clean toner helps my skin not be so oily

  • Ashley Bree Perez

    I’ve actually tried the derma e microdermabrasion scrub and it’s awesome! It’s gentle but does the JOB! I ran out… haven’t had a chance to get more. I’m so excited for this giveaway. I really can’t explain how much and for how long I’ve wanted a clarisonic….I just have 2 kids and can’t treat myself to stuff like that… and all the products— I’m like you— I’m totally into skin care and I think like any other woman, I’m looking for products to take the age away lol. I’m going to be ..,,29 (Kusturica kidding, 32) in april….and within the last year all of a sudden the wrinkles/fine lines, age spots, and dry skin, and dark circles just BAM came out of no where…. ty again!
