Ah, the busiest time of the year—we meet again. Every holiday season, I’m reminded that if I don’t start planning months ahead, I will always feel behind: on work, on planning social events, on my favorite TV shows, and of course, on my holiday shopping. Finding some much-needed calm is few and far between, and I know I’m not the only one. This year, I’m embracing it and making things easier on myself by shopping at one place for (most of) my holiday gifts: Dermstore

Dermstore is the destination for high-quality beauty products. The best in skincare, makeup, haircare, body care, and more live on Dermstore’s site, and they make the perfect gifts for all of your loved ones. I’ve rounded up my favorite picks for this year (some that I’ll even be gifting or asking for myself) that will score you major points with everyone on your list:

 

Olaplex

Healthy Hair Essentials Kit

If you haven't introduced your mom to the magic that is Olaplex yet, beware that giving her this gift will result in nonstop raving for months (maybe years) to come. She'll get the chance to try the brand's top products, including full sizes of the No. 3 hair treatment and No. 7 Bonding Oil and travel sizes of the No. 4 shampoo and No. 5 conditioner.

Bare Minerals

Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15

Makeup is a traditionally hard-to-gift item, but Bare Minerals' classic powder foundation is always a safe bet. It's available in dozens of shades, but the lightweight formula makes it pretty forgiving if you're not positive on shade (and the Bare Minerals shade finder makes it even easier), and the formula is ideal for oily and dry skin types.

DHC

Deep Cleansing Oil

If your mom is all, "An oil? On your face?" like mine, this DHC option is a great gateway into the double cleanse. It's lightweight and rinses completely clean, leaving no residue or oily film on your face. It's ideal for all skin types and the perfect excuse to teach your mom more about what skincare looks like in 2021.

Aquis

Lisse Luxe Hair Turban

Remember those days your mom complained about all the towels you dirtied because you had to use one for your body and one for your hair? Tell mom you're sorry with this hair turban that majorly cuts down on drying time and reduces frizz and breakage.

MD Solar Sciences

Hydrating Sheer Lip Balm SPF30

Sticky, goopy, drying, uncomfortable lipsticks are a thing of the past. Incoming: hybrid lip formulations that moisturize and protect lips with a touch of glossy pigment, like this one. This is a lip product you'll be excited to reapply throughout the day.

Slip

4-Piece Scrunchie Set

Now when you inevitably ask if your deskmate has a hair tie when the 3 p.m. scaries strike, the answer will always be yes. But these come in such cute colors, reduce breakage, and eliminate creases, so don't be surprised if they hide them from you.

Caudalie

Vinoperfect Glycolic Peel Mask

Encourage some rest and relaxation after the busy holiday season with this glycolic peel mask that gives spa-like results. Caudalie's masks can barely stay on the shelves because they're clean, at a fair price point, and always effective.

Living Proof

PhD Dry Shampoo

After all those late happy hours followed by much-too-early meetings, your work wife will understand the need for dry shampoo all too well. There's a reason this is heralded as one of the best dry shampoos on the market (it was passed around The Everygirl HQ like candy pre-COVID): It doesn't just cover up the oil, it actually makes your hair feel clean. We won't judge if you keep one for yourself.

ILIA

The After Hours Set

Consider this the perfect stash for going from client call to GNO in a matter of minutes. This set contains a liquid eyeshadow, a lip and cheek color stick, and Ilia's newest product, the Fullest Volumizing Mascara.

Oribe

Cote d'Azur Nourishing Hand Creme

Nothing feels bougier than a fancy hand cream, especially if it includes its very own turnkey to squeeze out every last drop. This one is in the classic Oribe scent (a sweet blend of bergamot, sandalwood, and jasmine) and comes in a super chic tube anyone will feel fancy pulling out of their handbag.

Supergoop!

Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40

Be the wiser sibling you know you are by gifting one of our favorite sunscreens at The Everygirl HQ. It's completely clear and never leaves a white cast, making this a no-brainer gift that everyone can enjoy.

Sunday Riley

Complete Morning Skincare Routine

Try your hand at Sunday Riley's best sellers, like the Good Genes lactic acid treatment (loved by our editors and celebs), a vitamin C serum and oil, a silky cleanser suitable for all skin types, and a hydrating essence (that immediately disappeared from shelves when it was released last year based on its popularity). Favorite sibling award, coming right up.

Bioderma

Sensibio H2O Micellar Water

The classic Bioderma micellar water is the French skincare item we'll never replace, especially after late nights when doing an oil cleanse is simply out of the question. For the sib who's always on the go, this will be a welcomed addition to their skincare routine.

Briogeo

Don't Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask

This workhorse deep conditioner deserves a spot in everyone's hair routine because it's masterfully created to work with all hair types. It's somehow both lightweight and deeply nourishing, so it checks every box.

Paula's Choice

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

If you want to forever be known as the "cool" sibling, gift this. For a while, you couldn't find this anywhere, as "before and after" TikToks blew up, showing the magic of this affordable exfoliating toner.

ORIBE

3 Piece Hair Set

For a gift that will truly impress, go for this luxurious set from Oribe. This includes a mini shampoo, conditioner, and dry texture spray, all from the famed Gold Lust line that's loved by celebrities, hairstylists, and editors alike. Plus, the scent is so intoxicating, they'll think of you every time they use it.

Jane Iredale

PurePressed Blush

This super soft, blendable powder blush is ideal for the makeup expert or total newbie because it glides on with little to no blending required. Available in 11 different shades, you're guaranteed to find one that'll stand out in anyone's collection and on anyone's skin tone.

Slip

Pure Silk Pillowcase

Silk pillowcases minimize friction against your skin and hair, resulting in little to no tangles, creases, and breakage. This luxe gift feels timeless and special—just like your MIL.

Estee Lauder

Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate

Whether they swear by the cult-classic Advanced Night Repair already or not, this eye serum is bound to get a solid "ooh" when opened. This will convince anyone to start using eye cream, thanks to its serum texture that feels lightweight yet so nourishing and soothing.

Herbivore

Coconut Milk Bath Soak

"Ahhh": Exactly what your recipient will say the moment they sink into their first bath with this iconic product. This is bound to prompt a few at-home spa nights, leaving you with smooth, hydrated skin without lifting a finger.

Versed

Gentle Retinol Serum

Anything from Versed is a win in our book, but this gentle retinol serum takes the cake. It's one of our most-loved reader buys because it's affordable, easy to use, and effective.

Dr Dennis Gross

Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel

This gentle two-step peel is almost as good as going into the spa, which is why experts and skincare enthusiasts alike swear by it. In a matter of minutes, your skin is refreshed, smoother, and brighter. It's the perfect addition to your special occasion skincare prep—like an upcoming party, birthday, or wedding you'll inevitably drag your friends to.

Wander Beauty

Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks

Time to make up for all those late-night calls, like when you just finished that Colleen Hoover book and needed to sob to someone. These gold undereye masks will show your best friend that although you desperately need her in the late hours sometimes, you do understand the havoc it leaves on her dark circles. These make your undereyes feel soothed and moisturized, no matter what you were up to the night before (I also love them on long flights, and because they're gold, they're pretty chic).

COSRX

Acne Pimple Master Patch

There is not a single soul on this Earth who wouldn't love a set of pimple patches in their stocking, especially our favorites from K-beauty brand CosRX. These stay on all night and day, helping to zap your worst zits in a mere few days.

St. Tropez

Self-Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist

Show your best friend you remember that one wild spray tan story she told you years ago (even better, that you experienced together) with a simple solution. This has a very fine mister that makes adding a slight bronze to your face super easy. They'll never have to worry about looking splotchy or streaky—just the golden goddess you already know they are.

Dermstore

Best of Dermstore The Essential Set

Dermstore curated this gift set with minis of their top-selling products from huge brands like Skinceuticals (including my favorite moisturizer of all time), Sunday Riley, Ilia, Tula, and more. Complete in a clear Dermstore travel bag, you'll have a dozen new products to test in the new year—a beauty lover's dream.

Nuface

Mini Hydrate and Contour Mini Gift Set

The perfect gift doesn't exi—this facial toning device is just as good as getting a buzzy microcurrent facial like the stars, from the comfort of your own home. It reduces and prevents fine lines and wrinkles, firms skin, contours your cheekbones and jawline, and kills bacteria. It's a do-it-all device that we didn't think could get any better until we came across this set—complete with a carrying case and a full-size of the brand new hydrating activating gel and applicator brush.

Sunday Riley

Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment

There are a few standard products you can always find us recommending at The Everygirl—and Good Genes has topped our list for the last four years. This powerful lactic acid treatment reduces texture and fine lines and wrinkles, revealing a brighter, smoother, glowier complexion without having to tinker with a ton of different products. It's ideal for the skincare minimalist (or anyone who just wants damn good skin).

Revision Skincare

YouthFull Lip Replenisher

Newsflash: Your lips are skin too. One of the first areas you'll notice aging is your lips, which lose fullness over time. But keeping them moisturized and protected is the easy way to minimize those signs of aging and keep them plump as ever—and this balm is basically the best on the market. It uses hyaluronic acid and peptides to hydrate and plump lips—no injections required.

beautyblender

beautyblender Pro Sponge

We hate to admit it, but nothing out there really holds a candle to the original beautyblender, which is why it's the perfect gift to treat yourself for a job well done this year.
