This is part 1 of 3 of my “best gifts” lists for those who have still yet to complete their holiday shopping. This list is specifically for those who like skincare or are beginning to expand their collection. The majority of the products I’ve listed are ones that I have, and I’ll have links to my reviews of those specific ones if I have them up. Hope this helps!

1. Innisfree Mask Capsules


I first discovered these mask capsules when I placed my first Innisfree order. They have a lot of different types to tackle different skin concerns and can be used 2-3 times per capsule. My suggestions for the capsules are: Rice, Volcanic Cluster, Bija & Tea Tree/Bija & Aloe and Green Tea.

2. A’Pieu Daily Sheet Mask


This is a box of 33 sheet masks with a built-in sot for tweezers to keep everything sanitary, that you are supposed to use daily. It comes in three types, each tackling a different skin concern: Green Tea (Soothing), Black Tea (Hydrating) and Hyaluronic Acid. Though if you don’t know the skin type of the person you’ll be buying this for, I would suggest getting the Green Tea one.

3. Neogen Foaming Cleanser


This is a foaming cleanser that foams when pumped out of the bottle, so there’s no need to use a bubble maker like traditional foaming cleansers.  It comes with four types that tackles different skin concerns (like most products); Cranberry (Revitalizing), Blueberry (Moisturizing), Cereal (Transparent?) and Green Tea (Soothing). If you aren’t sure of the person’s skin type, I would suggest going for Cereal or Green Tea, I’m assuming that Cereal is a general cleanser without any specific benefit.

4. JayJun Gel Eye Patch


This is a hydrogel under-eye patch that helps reduce the look of dark circles and wrinkles, and it comes in two types; Green Tea (Protects & Strengthens) and Roselle Tea (Conditions and Brightens). I have the Green Tea  version and it’s pretty good at brightening the under-eye area, so my theory is that getting either one wouldn’t matter much. That is unless the person dislikes herbal-ly scents, then I’d probably give them the Roselle one which should have a more floral scent.

5. Belif Aqua Bomb/Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream


If your gift recipient doesn’t like to hassle with too many skincare products, this could be the best  present in this case. Both creams could be used alone, or in conjunction with other products. I personally use the Aqua Bomb as a moisturizer before primer if I’m having one of those really dry skin days, and the Water Bank Moisture Cream I tend to use if I am short on time (alone or as a primer since it smooths the skin texture a little).
