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:
Bond Maintenance 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, the No. 4 shampoo, and the No. 5 conditioner.
Soft Focus Finishing Powder
This translucent finishing powder is perfect for any mom who likes a barely-there but still luminous makeup look. With the help of organic powders and oils, this powder helps soften the skin, blur imperfections, and get rid of shine. The best part? Since it's translucent, you don't have to nail down moms shade before gifting.
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 2022.
Pure Silk Hair Turban
Remember when mom would have to untangle your hair because you would refuse to brush it for days at a time? Tell mom you're sorry with this hair turban that protects hair from the effects of friction throughout the night.
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.
5-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.
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.
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 doesn't just cover up the oil, it actually makes your hair feel clean. We won't judge if you keep one for yourself.
Holiday Eye Set
Consider this the perfect stash for taking your eye look from client call to GNO in a matter of minutes. This set contains a volumizing mascara, liquid liner, liquid chromatic eye tint, and matte powder eye tint.
Nothing feels bougier than a fancy hand cream, except for one that doubles as a cuticle cream. This one has a luxurious vanilla and orange peel scent with added soothing benefits like aloe vera and rosehip oil.
Glowscreen SPF 40
Be the wiser sibling you know you are by gifting one of our favorite sunscreens at The Everygirl HQ. It gives a pearlescent finish and never leaves a white cast, making this a no-brainer gift that everyone can enjoy.
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 brightening serum, an anti-aging eye cream, and a face serum infused with retinol. Favorite sibling award, coming right up.
Hydrabio H2O Gifts
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, the micellar water plus Bioderma's serum and gel-cream included in this kit will be welcomed additions to their skincare routine.
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.
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.
3 Piece Hair Set
For a gift that will truly impress, go for this luxurious set from Oribe. This includes a full size and travel size dry texturizing spray and a full size dry shampoo, 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.
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 six different shades, you're guaranteed to find one that'll stand out in anyone's collection and on anyone's skin tone.
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.
Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Gel-Creme
Whether they swear by the cult-classic Advanced Night Repair already or not, this eye gel-creme is bound to get a solid "ooh" when opened. This will convince anyone to start using eye cream, thanks to its gel-creme that feels lightweight yet so nourishing and soothing.
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.
FAB Skin Lab Retinol Serum
Anything from First Aid Beauty is a win in our book, but this retinol serum takes the cake. Even though its a potent retinol serum, it has hyaluronic acid and an antioxidant and ceramide blend to help soothe, nourish, and calm the skin.
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.
Rose Gold Radiance Edit
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 rose gold 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 and face 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 rose gold, they're pretty chic).
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.
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.
Best of Dermstore The Necessities Set
Dermstore curated this gift set with minis of their top-selling products from huge brands like Oribe (including one of our favorite dry shampoos), Sunday Riley, First Aid Beauty, Tula, and more. Complete in a clear Dermstore travel bag, you'll have over a dozen new products to test in the new year—a beauty lover's dream.
Trinity Facial Trainer Kit
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 hydrating activating gel and applicator brush.
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 few 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).
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 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.
