Here’s What Beauty Experts Are *Actually* Gifting This Year

Let the specialists do the heavy lifting for you this holiday shopping season.

Spending day after day studying, testing, and curating the latest and greatest in skin care and beauty products kinda gives those of us working in the beauty and skin care industries the upper hand when it comes to gifting.
Not only do we know what’s currently trending, but we have insights into what will be the next, most efficacious ingredient in the skin care world. The holiday season is the perfect time to put all of this knowledge to good use and provide our loved ones skin care goodies that are perfect for their skin type and concerns. After all, doesn’t it feel much better to give a thoughtful gift than to receive one? 
Below, we asked the staff at Soko Glam and Then I Met You to provide the skin care and beauty picks they’ll be wrapping up for those in their life this season! 
This brand is a breath of fresh air, likening their formulas to potions and leaning into a witchy vibe. (Manyo Factory actually translates to witch factory!) 
Their Galactomy Essence Cream absorbs quickly and is an asset for staving off December’s bitter winds due to the moisturizer’s fermented goodness.
Did we mention the packaging is right up our alley? 
Top Gift Pick: Shannon, Associate Manager, PR + Editorial at Soko Glam

A sensorial and hydrating experience in a jar, Thank You Farmer’s Back to Relax Soothing Gel Mask is a great way to wind down and brighten at the same time. Vitamin C and cica lovers will use this mask up in no time, as both lend themselves to the jello formula! 
Top Gift Pick: Liz, Marketing Associate at Then I Met You

Bakuchiol’s about to be the next big skin care ingredient, so it only makes sense that any beauty or skin care lover would love to get in on it early!
The plant derived ingredient is a much gentler dupe for retinol that doesn’t cause irritation. Neogen’s Real Firming Bakuchiol Serum formulates the vitamin A alternative with squalane for an added boost of nourishment.
Top Gift Pick: Shannon, Associate Manager, PR + Editorial at Soko Glam

If you’re keyed into K-Beauty, you know I’m From is THAT brand. 
They truly tapped into self-care vibes with their Mugwort Mask, a way to wind down as mugwort extract helps to cool down heated skin and bring quick relief to irritated skin after a long day.
Top Gift Pick: Steven, Performance Marketing Intern at Soko Glam

Look no further. We found a vegan, cruelty free and cute skin care gift set from a K-Beauty indie brand currently making waves in the industry. 
The set includes three full size faves, a tie-dye bag, headband, and, of course, stickers.
Top Gift Pick: Talia, Manager, Brand Marketing at Soko Glam

Forget 2-in-1 products, K-Beauty’s already onto 3-in-1 holy grails. This product combines the benefits of a toner, mist, and serum in one for on-the-go hydration that can easily fit into any tote or purse. 
Top Gift Pick: Gee, Associate, Creative at Soko Glam
