Beautycounter Holiday Gift Guide

The best Beautycounter holiday gifts and sets to buy for yourself and others! 

Gift guides are some of my favorite pieces of content of the entire year. I love picking out things that I know my friends will love, and I also love sharing what I’ve loved in the past as inspiration for holiday shoppers. This one is especially fun since I love makeup and skincare and these sets are great for the beauty junkie or novice.

All of my picks are Beautycounter since I love the brand’s mission and quality. I shared my top picks to buy for yourself and my top picks for gift giving. A number of these sets are also perfect for stocking stuffers or breaking up for smaller gifts that are more affordable (e.g. one set of jellies can make five gifts when paired with a hand lotion, a bar of dark chocolate and/or or a cute notebook).

As a Beautycounter consultant, I got to shop and try the products early and these are a few of my favorites! You can see the full holiday collection here.

Beautycounter Holiday Gifts

My #1 pick for yourself or others

Golden Hour All-in-One Palette

Beautycounter hasn’t had a complete face palette in a few years and this one is GORGEOUS! It has four eye shadows, a blush and a highlighter. I’ve used this every single day since I got it, and I swear it’s one of the only things making me look alive these days with a newborn! I’m completely obsessed (with both my newborn and the palette). This makes a great gift for anyone, but make sure to get one for yourself too because when you see it, you won’t want to give it away.

For your Mom or Mother in Law 

The Bright Side Duo 

This year I am getting my mother in law the Bright Side Duo. This set is unbeatable. It has the Overnight Resurfacing Peel AND the Vitamin C Serum, which are must-have products for every women. The overnight resurfacing peel is the #1 product I recommend to people wanting to take their skincare up a level and it pairs perfectly with the  All Bright Serum. (Read my review for the Overnight Peel here and for the All Bright Serum here.) The hot pink packaging makes this duo even better.

Special Edition Cleansing Balm

I am OBSESSED with the Cleansing Balm. I use it daily–– especially in the colder months when my skin becomes extra dry. It can even be used as an overnight mask. (Read my full review here.) It’s a perfect gift for a mom or MIL.

This Special Edition version is incredible because it’s almost TWICE the size of the normal cleansing balm, giving you a lot of bang — and moisture — for your buck. This is a must for anyone with sensitive, dry or aging skin.

For your Teen

The Jellies

They had the Jellies last year and I was shocked by how much I liked them. They provide a nice shine, I love love love the flavors and they’re easy to apply without a mirror. I planned to give them away as gifts and then kept them all myself. Oops. These make a great stocker stuffer for tweens too!

I love the colors included in the Shimmers and the Brights look so fun too.

Both are so pretty, and like I mentioned above, these are perfect for splitting into smaller gifts. Even just one jelly and a sweet note is a perfect little happy for a friend.

For your sister 

Good Glow Body Duo

Body Polish + Illuminating Body Lotion = perfect skin for the holiday season. Fingers crossed there are some holiday parties with cocktail dresses we get to go to! It’s a fun present for any lady in your life, but if I had a sister I’d give her this.

Beautycounter Holiday Gift Sets

Beyond Gloss Trio

If I didn’t already have these shades, I’d keep them for myself. But since I have them, I know how good they are and what a great gift this will make! The gloss and packaging is gorgeous. Perfect for anyone’s makeup bag. They’re on the less expensive side compared to some other Beautycounter sets, so that’s great too!

Beautycounter Holiday Gift Sets

For your Hairstylist, Dog-walker, Esthetician, etc.

Good Scents Hand Cream Trio

There’s no getting around washing your hands like crazy this fall and winter, so these hand creams are essential. I love the sizes. I already got a set and put one in my car, once in my diaper bag and one in our powder room. This makes a great gift for your hairstylist, neighbor, esthetician, dog walker, etc. This is another set that’s easy to break up and pair with something else, like a Jelly or bottle of wine!

For yourself

The Clean Deo 

Maybe not the most sparkly gift, but it’s one that clean beauty junkies or teens will appreciate. Beautycounter launched their clean deodorant this month and it’s SO good. It’s going to sell out quickly, and the full sizes aren’t launching until the new year.

Shopping tips

When I first joined Beautycounter as a consultant, I didn’t really believe when they said holiday products would sell out. But… after four holiday seasons with the company, I now know that they do. So if there is anything you KNOW you want, shop sooner than later. And keep in mind that unless you’re doing direct shipping (i.e. mailing the gifts directly to the recipient), you’ll need to ship gifts to yourself and then mail them out to anyone who lives far away. So leave yourself a little buffer so you’re not waiting in line with the rest of humanity at the post office in mid-December!

Their products make gifting easy since I know they’re high-quality, the packaging is beautiful and people love being treated to nice products they wouldn’t buy for themselves. (If you’re not familiar with Beautycounter, this post explains what makes their products different and better than conventional beauty products.) Plus, each gift set comes in a lovely box, so you can just put a ribbon and a gift tag on it, and you’re good to go! Ultimate time saver!

    I want that mini facial oil set so so bad! 😉

    Hi Teri, do you use the beautycounter eye makeup remover when you’re wearing eyelash extensions? I see that it has oil in it and I thought you couldn’t use oil-based products while wearing extensions.

      I did use it while I had lashes, but only to remove eyeshadow and eyebrow pencil. I used a cotton pad and was careful not to let it touch my lashes or lash line. But my lashes are gone now so now I’m using it freely! 🙂
