This gift guide is the ultimate wish list and perfect for friends and family who are beauty lovers.
It may seem challenging to purchase gifts for fellow beauty and makeup enthusiasts. I mean, what don’t they have?
We’ve curated the perfect beauty wish list, sure to inspire the most obsessed beauty lover, with a gift guide that will make Christmas this year, that much more special.
FOR THE FRIEND WHO LOVES SHOWER PRODUCTS
Including a cleanse spa brush as well as three multi-purpose cleansing heads, this set by Finishing Touch Flawless is rejuvenating and refreshing for the whole body. Helping to remove all dirt and grime, using the spa brush will leave the skin more flawless and radiant.
It provides an at-home spa experience in the shower with its three interchangeable heads that each have their own purpose, either cleansing, massaging, or exfoliating the skin.
With an extra-long handle, it can get into the hard-to-reach places on the body and can be used from head to toe.
As the brush is water resistant and battery operated, it can stay in the shower, ready for use always. Take note not to submerge the cleanse spa in bodies of water as it is water resistant (designed for in-shower use), not waterproof.
Finishing Touch Flawless have also recently launched their Legs product for RRP $149.99 which is a revolutionary shaver with floating heads that rotate making it easier than ever to remove hair around areas like the knees and ankles.
FOR BEGINNERS TO SKINCARE
Kiehl’s Welcome Skincare Kit is the perfect starting point for those who are unfamiliar with but want to get started with skincare.

By using this skincare kit, the skin will be left feeling cleansed, toned, hydrated and replenished overnight.
A key ingredient in the formulas is Antarcticine (sourced directly from Antarctica) which smoothens the skin and facilitates the retention of moisture within the face, especially during colder months.
Other ingredients include Avocado oil (the most moisturising fruit oil that is a natural source of vitamins A, D and E, amino acids and Potassium) and Calendula (a plant native to the Mediterranean and has skin smoothing properties).
