Even though holiday shopping can seem overwhelming and time-consuming, finding that perfect gift doesn’t have to be a challenge. Make it fun by exploring unique beauty products sure to pamper all those near and dear. Here are some tips and picks for choosing the ideal skin care gift for everyone on your list.
For Your Coworker
Help your overworked colleague get some much needed R&R with a lush body scrub. The fragrance of Red Flower Lemon Coffee Blossom Olive Stone Scrub ($66) is reminiscent of a Moroccan retreat with its lemony, spicy scent, it and will help wash away the stress of the day.

For The Trendsetter
