What Do You Buy For A Beauty Junkie Who Has Everything?
Stuck on what to get for the beauty guru in your life? Fret not. Here are some gifts that will impress even the one who seemingly has it all.| August 29, 2019
We all have a beauty junkie in our lives, whose verification badge of honour would be owning entire shelves dedicated to their sprawling collection of skincare and makeup treasures. No beauty launch goes unnoticed by them and they indulge in splurges ever so often that it makes it real tricky for anyone to find a product that they actually need. If no one in your life is like that, news flash: it’s probably you.
Since purchasing a run-of-the-mill makeup palette or skincare set simply won’t do – a beauty junkie knows luxe after all – we rounded up some products that we believe will satisfy the beauty aficionado in your life.
The Buff Customisable Beauty Oil
Nothing screams “I made an effort” like a bespoke beauty product. Of course, you would need to have the down low on your pal’s skin condition. We’ve stated our case about how important face oils are and customising it according to skin type is the best way to make sure that the combination is perfect for one’s skin.
We have our eye on The Buff’s Customisable Beauty Oil since it draws from a library that contains over 100 natural ingredients, from jojoba oil, rosehip oil, maracuja oil to frankincense essential oil, geranium essential oil and blue tansy essential oil.
Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations Customisable Serum
We can’t get enough of Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations Customisable Serum, which is made of a squalane-based concentrate with your choice of seven complexes. All you have to do is to convince your beauty junkie pal to get a consultation along with you at Nex, Tangs at Tang Plaza or Ngee Ann City, Takashimaya shopping centre.
Kiehl’s customer representative will analyze their skin and discuss their goals and concerns. Before your friend even knows what hit them, they will end up with a personalised serum (yes, with their name on it) and you can go, surprise! Seems like quite a task but it’s brilliant if you actually pull it off.
ZIIP Nano Current Device
If customisation is too much of a hassle, how about experimental products that your friend has yet to take the plunge to purchase? The ZIIP Nano Current Device allows your beauty junkie friend to indulge in an electrical nano-current facial in the comfort of their own home. This treatment helps to prevent and reverse signs of aging, decrease on-set acne and promote glowing skin.
La Mer The Body Crème
A beauty junkie often has a taste for all things luxury, so getting your hands on the most intricate and opulent skin care products on the market is not a bad idea. Even if they already own the product, the more the merrier, right?
You will not go wrong with the OG of luxury creams, which has a thick consistency. Brimming with the marine algae that La Mer is well-known for, this body cream smells like the sea and has a calming effect on dry and itchy skin.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask
Another indulgent product perfect for your beauty junkie pal would be La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask. The caviar contains lifting and firming properties that will make one’s skin feel taut and supple.
Apart from the star ingredient, the mask also contains carica papaya, a natural exfoliant that gently removes dead skin cells, and sunflower seed oil, which replenishes moisture that one’s skin loses during the day.
