Unlike fragrance or cosmetic sets, skincare gifts can please even the most pickiest of beauty lovers, as they contain beauty treats that transform and beautify your skin in a flash. So, if heavy-duty cleansers, ultra-smoothing creams and therapeutic lifesavers sound like your thing, try the First Aid Beauty Cheers To Fab Skin (available exclusively at Sephora stores and Sephora.com) for a healthier-looking complexion.

Kit Essentials ingredients Holiday Beauty Gift Idea Review: First Aid Beauty Cheers To Fab Skin Set - Face Cleanser Daily Essential, Radiance Pads, Ultra Repair Cream, Lip Therapy, Eye Duty Triple Remedy

First Aid Beauty has been known to be a brand that saves skin when it’s at its absolute worst. Yes, I’m even talking about blemish-prone, acne-ridden skin that shows no signs of relief. So no matter your skin concerns (hey there, dark circles!), this magical kit brings a bit of holiday magic to your face for an amazing price.

Inside the kit comes the famous Face Cleanser Daily Essential, which gently cleanses the skin from acne-causing dirt and impurities. Also preventing future flare-ups, this bad-boy will not have a negative effect even on the most sensitive of skin.

Want to keep blotchiness at bay? The Facial Radiance Pads combine lactic and glycolic acids to soothe irritable skin and allow Indian gooseberry, lemon peel and cucumber to brighten up sallow-looking skin. If dry and chapped skin is one of your worst #beautyproblems, try the Ultra Repair Cream, which works great against eczema, dermatitis and pilaris. When the temperatures begin to drop, the Ultra Repair Lip Therapy uses a paraben-free formula to hydrate, protect and soothe dry lips against the elements. Stash inside your purse for instant relief wherever you go.

Finally, treat your eyes to some intense therapy with the Eye Duty Triple Remedy product, which employs special ingredients to brighten, de-puff and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Just dab a little bit of product underneath your eyes and with continued use, expect to see more youthful, radiant-looking eyes in no time.

I’ve always loved philosophy scents, especially Amazing Grace, which just happened to be my signature scent throughout my collegiate days. Celebrate Grace, however, is the more grown-up version of the classic, crowd-pleasing scent, as it fuses together aromatic notes of lavender, elegant white rose and clean musk. Boasting long staying power without becoming too overpowering, your mom, grandmother or doting aunt will love finding this elegant scent under the tree.

Revive Wrinkle Corrector Review, Ingredients: RéVive Intensité Line Erasing Serum - How RES Technology Helps Produce New Skin Cells For A Younger Looking Appearance

NEW! RéVive Intensité Line Erasing Serum is an advanced wrinkle corrector that is “powered by RES Technology featuring Line Relaxing Complex to dramatically soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles for natural-looking facial rejuvenation.” According to the brand, the “targeted clinical formula works instantly and over time to visibly firm and tighten skin, correcting the appearance of deep facial lines and wrinkles while preventing new damage.”

RéVive promises that skin will be “luxuriously smoothed and softened” and that “lines and wrinkles will diminish, skin density will improve and facial contours will become more defined.”  They also promise improvements in skin tone and texture.

Review, Ingredients: RéVive Intensité Line Erasing Serum - How RES Technology Helps Produce New Skin Cells For A Younger Looking Appearance

So what is RES Technology? It stands for Renewal Epidural Science, and is comprised of Bio-Renewal Proteins which encourage the natural production of healthy-looking skin cells that help restore and repair damaged skin. Additionally, the formula contains “groundbreaking” biomimetic peptides, which have never been used in the United States before; these peptides are said to soften and relax lines and wrinkles. The serum is made in the USA and not tested on animals.

So how does it rate? This light, fresh formula glides on and absorbs into skin instantly. I used it twice a day, morning and night, for about 2 weeks. Since it contains no SPF, I followed up with my daily moisturizer, which has an SPF of 40. I liked the product very much; it left my skin soft and I looked refreshed, relaxed and healthy, like I’d been getting enough sleep — for a change! I did notice a slight firming effect after I applied it, helping my skin look more toned. For the high price ($600), this anti-wrinkle serum with results that boast “no injections necessary,” it seems to work wonders with continued use and dedication.

You can purchase all products reviewed and mentioned on BeautyStat.com!

Would you beauties spend $600 on this anti-wrinkle serum?

Tutorial, Review, Ingredients: How To Make A DIY Holiday Bath Bomb With Indie Lee - The Skincare Benefits Of Peppermint Oil

How Can Baking Soda Benefit Your Beauty Routine: Get Glowing Skin, DIY Manicure/Pedicure Treatment, Brighten Teeth, Deep-Clean Hair

Indie Lee has created a holiday-themed bath bomb recipe, which makes for a great hostess gift or stocking stuffer. The secret ingredients to the all-natural recipe are baking soda and citric acid, which will make the bombs fizz up like a glass of champagne once you drop them in the bathtub!

Ingredients:

1 c. baking soda
½ c. citric acid
2 tbsp. jojoba oil
5 drops of peppermint essential oil
5 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops of lemon essential oil
1 tbsp. witch hazel
 
Directions:

1. Before you start the DIY, make sure you have a fun holiday mold or tin to shape your bombs in. You could also use cookie cutters and parchment paper.

2. Combine baking soda and citric acid in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle in jojoba oil, followed by essential oils. Mix well until you have a smooth mixture.

3. Slowly drizzle witch hazel into the mixture, constantly stirring to stop the ingredients from fizzing.

4. Once all of the ingredients are moist enough to clump together, firmly press the mixture into your molds.

5. Allow the bombs to dry for 3-4 hours before removing them from the molds.
Recipe will make 6-10 bath bombs, depending on size of mold.

6. Add 1-2 bath bombs to a warm bath and enjoy! Use within three months. Store in an airtight container.
