Looking for some serious gifting inspiration? Look no further than our list of the holiday gifts K-beauty influencers are giving this year!
It can be hard to find someone a good skin care or makeup gift. Everyone’s skin is different and you don’t want to epically fail when it comes to matching their skin type, concerns, and needs. That’s why we decided to ask some of our favorite K-beauty influencers to tell us what they think are the best K-beauty gifts to give for the holidays this year. Take note!
Gothamista: The Soko Glam Sheet Mask Haul Value Set
Edward Avila: Nature Republic Kiss My Mousse Tint Kit
“I think the Nature Republic Kiss My Mousse Tint Kit would make a cute Christmas gift,” says Edward, “It’s a mini ‘carrying case’ with six of Nature Republic’s mini mousse tints.”
“I converted my friend who only used SKII to the Klairs toner. It’s such a great affordable toner,” says Joan. “The Cosrx Overnight Mask is great for dry winters and the results are amazing!”
Dasha Kim: The 3CE Mood Recipe Lip Color Mini Kit and the 3CE Mood Recipe Multi Eye Color Palette
“I never finish one lipstick cause there are so many other beautiful shades I want to use,” says Dasha. “So for me, mini size lipsticks are the best. These lipsticks will be your new MLBB. All five shades in this kit have similar vibe yet no one is the same. Why buy only one when you can have them all! And if the lip kit is too pricey, I’d recommend this pretty eyeshadow palette. It has matte and shimmer shadows and are the perfect colors for daily to holiday makeup.”
Asia Jackson: The Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream
“This would make a great gift because while it’s inexpensive, it punches above its weight,” says Asia. “It’s the perfect moisturizer for skin care beginners because it contains ceramides which helps repair and maintain the skin barrier function!”
Subin Chae AKA “Hello Pretty”: The Clio Pro Layering Eye Palette and the Primera Alpine Berry Intensive Watery Cream
“The color payoffs are amazing in this Clio palette,” says Subin. “They have beautiful ‘vaseline’ finishes, which look amazing for winter holidays.”
“This Primera cream has a workable texture with great ingredients that are skin-friendly with no parabens, artificial color, fragrance, mineral oil, or animal ingredients,” she says. “It’s rich enough to deeply moisturize dry winter skin.”
Stephen Ko, AKA “Kindofstephen”: The Son & Park Beauty Water
“It’s a cult favorite, so most people are probably already familiar with it, and it comes in a really beautiful bottle,” says Stephen. “I like it because it’s a simple way for me to remove my sunscreen at the end of a long day and give it a quick clean.”
“Dr. Jart+ Rubber Masks are definitely a good stocking stuffer. The quirky design and fun-to-use aspect of it make it a playful gift for K-beauty beginners regardless of gender and age,” says Liah. “The Cosrx Overnight Spa Mask could be a thoughtful gift for friends who are struggling with dry, parched skin during winter. If they complain that none of the moisturizers work, you know what to give now. This mask will retain the hydration overnight giving their skin all the nutritive benefits, and they will wake up with plump skin that GLOWS. And they’ll thank you!”
