In my opinion, holiday sets usually have some of the best travel-sized assortments. For anyone still doing some last minute shopping, I’ve compiled a list of some gift ideas for the travel lover in your life.
Ever since Le Labo introduced its skin/hair/body line this year, I’ve been obsessed. These travel sized minis are the perfect gift for the frequent traveler because they’re small enough to fit in any suitcase. They make for such a luxe, relaxing treat while you’re away from home.
REN Skincare has been a recent discovery of mine and they have some fantastic gift sets. The packaging is so vibrant and beautiful and fun.
My favorite from this year’s collection has to be the Face Favourites Set. It contains three best sellers and has a value of $62 but retails for only $29 at Sephora. REN is really great at formulating products for people with sensitive skin.
Another favorite of mine is the Ursa Major Traveler Skin Care Kit. It’s a great unisex present. My boyfriend and I both love the Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash and I’ve raved about it in this previous post.
Osea is another favorite natural beauty brand of mine. It stands for the core elements of wellness, Ocean, Sun, Earth, Atmosphere. This Everyday Essentials Set has everything you need for a minimalist skincare routine. The Sea Minerals Mist is so good and the Ocean Cleanser smells amazing.
Velvet Skin is a new company started by my fellow female entrepreneur, Kate Lee. The Velvet Clutch Collection is a decadent collection of travel-sized treats for only $29.25. For me, the Plush Hydrating Melt is a standout. It’s a skin-calming beauty balm that melts to the touch. Also, I think the name is adorable.
This Power Quad Mask Set from Advanced Clinicals contains four masks developed by chemists who wanted to create effective, results-driven formulations using technology.
The Collagen Anti-Aging Mask is tightening, nourishing and purifying with ferulic acid, rosewater and collagen. The Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask is hydrating and firming with glycerin, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid and algae. The Charcoal Detoxifying Mask is cleansing and pore-minimizing with charcoal, green tea and witch hazel. The Vitamin C Mud Mask is brightening and exfoliating with vitamin C & E and volcanic sand.
These mini Susanne Kaufmann Bath Oils are a great option if you’re looking for something a little more affordable. The bottles are quite aesthetic and smell amazing. They’re perfect to use when unwinding in the hotel bathtub after a long day.
Last but not least is the Aesop Jet Set Kit, one of my go-to sets for when I travel. The Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser and Rind Concentrate Body Balm both smell absolutely amazing.
That’s all from me! What gifts have you picked up this holiday season?
