Urban Outfitters has got you covered when it comes to gifting Makeup, skincare or accessories. They have a huge selection of gifts from various brands in wide price range. Today I am talking about some of the lovely gifts they kindly sent me for upcoming festive period. This will give you a rough idea of what you can select or you can even create a nice hamper with multiple goodies. Choice is yours!
Skincare and Makeup are my favorites so I will start with that 🙂
This Australian coffee scrub is known for keeping skin soft & hydrated making it ready for festive season. Coffee is a natural exfoliant that buffs away dry, damaged skin leaving you with an endless canvas of the softest, healthiest skin you’ve ever seen. Scrub + buff to pearly soft perfection with this revitalizing coffee body scrub by Frank Body. This is vegan friendly.
At first, I thought this is a mineral makeup kit so I was not much excited seeing this. My excitement level went high when I read this was an amazing skincare kit. This kit includes Rose + White Tea Antioxidant Complexion Refresher Mist, Hyaluronic + Rose Serum, Rose + Vitamin C Antioxidant Clearing Mask and an applicator brush.
Use the rose + vitamin C antioxidant clearing mask to tone, clarify + tighten pores. Mineral-rich dry powder clay mask with purified white kaolin to gently cleanse as red kaolin + bentonite absorb excess oils and lift dirt out of pores for firm, balanced skin. Replenish nourishment with the lightweight hyaluronic + rose serum. Ideal for daily use with hyaluronic acid to plump + fill out skin while maintaining hydration. Vitamin C + rosehip seed oil boost with antioxidants to protect complexion with a weightless finish perfect for layering with other treatments. Enhance radiance with the rose + white tea antioxidant complexion refresher mist. Innovative 2-in-1 treatment with a robust blend of organic aloe + rose hydrosol to soothe skin as white tea extract, raspberry seed oil + vitamin C work to replenish skin cells with a thorough dose of nourishing antioxidants. Glycolic acid is the perfect finishing touch to get that complexion glowing. Use in tandem for major results.
This kit alone is a great gift idea for someone who is much into skincare or even for treating yourself.
This oil is very eye catching as it contains flowers along with the extract. This floral-infused body oil is blended with natural apricot, sweet almond oils and nurturing Vitamin E. Use it on your skin, hair and even your nails for moisture + shine! You’ll be left with radiantly hydrated, glowing skin + hair that smells beautifully fresh. Forget Me Not is an uplifting blend of sparkling mandarin + green tea that blossoms on skin with delicate notes of freesia + orris. Ingredients: Caprylic/capric triglyceride (vegetable derived), fragrance/parfum, forget-me-not flowers, peach blossom flowers, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, tocopherol (vitamin E).
