Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing another holiday gift guide – this time for my beauty junkies out there. Because there are so many beauty products I want to share, I divided it into several parts. This first part is all about glow and moisture. My number one issue this time of the year is dryness. And, being the busiest time of the year for me, I admit, I haven’t been so good at drinking water or getting enough sleep. Too many sleepless nights + low water consumption = dryness!!! If you or the person you’re gifting is someone like me, then I have some beauty gift ideas for you!
Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty Goodies for Moisture and Glow
1. Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream Cleanser
As soon as cold and dry weather hits, it’s time to switch to a cream cleanser. I highly recommend this especially if you have dry skin. Scrubs or cleansers with beads can be harsh on already dry skin. So go for a cream one that’s so gentle and soothing to your skin like this Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench cloud cream cleanser. Like I said, I’m not gonna lie, my skin has been terrible lately. I haven’t been drinking much and staying up late because my head is buried in the computer with deadlines after deadlines. While I need to work on my habits, this cream cleanser has been helping me avoid other factors that contribute to dryness. I have been using a facial scrub before this. But now that my skin is dry, the moment I switched to a cream cleanser, I totally felt the difference. This cloud cream cleanser is so gentle. And I don’t even know how else to put it, but it really feels like a cloud on my skin. What’s even great is that it helps lock in moisture with sodium PCA coconut oil and marshmallow root extract. After that, I also use the matching Water Drench cream as my moisturizer.
2. Chanel La Creme Main Hand Lotion
Immediately after seeing the email about this, I knew I had to get it. It’s the perfect hand lotion size for my small bags. It’s so cute and portable. The dispenser is unique too. And let me tell you, the smell is amazing. It’s like having a light and fresh scent when you apply this on your hands. Now the most important thing, does it work? Does it hydrate enough? Yes it does! One day, I applied it to only one hand to be able to compare both hands at the end of the day. Let me tell you, even after several washes, you can totally see the difference. Yes, it’s kind of a splurge for 50 bucks for a small hand lotion. But that’s why it’s the perfect time to add this to your holiday wishlist. Or be the best friend ever and put this in your friend or loved one’s stocking stuffer.
3. Glow by Nature Made
I told you all about the USP-verified Nature Made Hair, Skin and Nails in this post. But now, I’m sharing with you this new GLOW supplement, also from Nature Made! It helps with skin smoothness, firmness, and suppleness.† It helps support skin hydration in as little as 15 days.† I have been taking it every now and then but I haven’t been consistent. So I’m now going to keep it next to my computer because that’s where I am most days anyway. LOL! This supplement has 70 mg of ceramosides that help replenish the natural ceramides in your skin.† Ceramides support skin hydration by helping form a lipid barrier within your skin to retain moisture.† This is a good stocking stuffer too!

4. Saints & Sinners Illuminati Divine Shine Holographic Serum
Now how about some glow for our hair too? If you’re gifting someone who loves all things hair, someone who loves to style his or her hair a lot, or is someone who is simply a unicorn, put this in his or her stocking stuffer! This is the Saints & Sinners Illuminati Divine Shine Holographic Serum. It’s an intense light reflecting shine using cosmetic materials that you can use on wet or dry hair. Go ahead and give him or her that holographic hair shine!
5. Givenchy Prisme Libre Travel
Okay, technically, this is a matte-finish powder. BUT this Givenchy Prisme Libre Travel powder is also an enhanced radiance loose powder 4-in-1 shade! So white it’s matte, it gives you that radiant finish after you do your makeup. I always use a setting powder after I do a full face of makeup and this one is a perfect travel size to bring to my trips. If you have a beauty junkie who loves to travel, this is the perfect gift or stocking stuffer to give!
So, which one is your favorite or something you want to add to your own wishlist too? Perhaps you just want to treat yourself this holiday season, what are you getting? Let me know. I’d love to hear what you’re looking for and maybe I’ll include it in the next beauty guide too! Stay tuned!
