It's that time of year again! Each year BeautyPopStop publishes a holiday gift guide geared towards men and women, featuring a variety of exciting products. The Hubs and I have put our heads together once again (don't forget to check out his men's section above for men's products) and we have some pretty amazing gift ideas to share with you this year!
Each edition features one gift idea for women (or general beauty lovers), one gift idea for men and one stocking stuffer (items $25 and under).
Clarisonics are one of the most popular at-home deep-cleansing devices I'm aware of. I have a lot of friends (beauty lovers and pros) who love and use them. This particular model is an upgraded version of the original Clarisonic Mia, featuring 2 speeds and timer settings. This little baby is also rechargeable! I hate having to plug in or scrounge for batteries if I don't have to. I previously reviewed this Clarisonic separately HERE. This set comes with the following:
- Clarisonic Mia 2
- Sensitive Brush Head
- Travel Case
- pLink charger
- 1 oz sample gel cleanser
On the Face
I've used similar devices as well as manual face brushes meant for deep cleansing, but I think this is definitely one of the most convenient! I have super sensitive skin and while the bristles on the brush head are firm yet soft, in general I cannot deep cleanse with any sort of friction like this on a daily basis. I find this is best used for me every 3 days, with my normal skin cleansing routine in between. That being said, I know plenty of people that use it daily and love it! I simply have extremely sensitive skin. This does a great job of both cleansing and exfoliating.
This set retails for $136.20 (QVC featured price)

This special holiday set is available in this fun deep pink on QVC's site
The Hubs reviewed Birchbox's men's subscription when it first came out a while back. He loved getting his own subscription box and liked the variety, but at the time he felt the samples in his box were similar or identical to ones he'd received in other subscription boxes he'd been asked to review earlier that year. Since then, it seems Birchbox has worked hard to expand what it offers the men, which is why it is one of our gift suggestions that year. Also, the Hubs reviews a lot of products each year, so he definitely gets more exposure than the average man so there's a greatly likeliness he'll receive things he's tried before. I have the same issue with subscriptions boxes for myself.
One of the great things about this subscription is that you can either get it for 1 month or you can subscribe for a full year and save $45.
Subscriptions for Birchbox Man are $20/month, but if you subscribe for a year you save $45 and pay $195 instead
Where to Buy
Birchbox Man subscriptions can be set up through their site.
Stocking Stuffer: EOS Limited Edition Lip Balm 3 Pack
I am a huge EOS balm fan! I have at least 3 or 4 in my purse (I know that's probably overkill) and several more floating around the house. I prefer the ones without SPF personally, but they do offer SPF in the Lemon Drop flavor. I love them, my little guys love them, even the Hubs likes them. I love their sets and think the holiday set is adorable this year! Though I'd love to see another Disney set as well.
This set retails for $9.99
Where to Buy
I've found the LE EOS balm sets to be hard to find, so I suggest going anywhere that sells EOS normally and scouring the shelves!
What do you think? Would you consider gifting any of these items or asking for them yourself?
