Is skin care a good gift?
What makes a good gift? Something they need, something they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves, something decadent.
The holidays are a great time to remind your loved ones to pamper themselves. If you have friends who haven’t yet discovered the beauty of organic skin care, what better time to nudge them in that direction? You can give them something useful, something aromatherapeutic, and something luxurious, all in one.
Though you might know that they’d love natural skin care products, how do you know which products to choose? What if it makes them break out? What if they won’t use it?
Here’s our skin care gift set ideas & guides for which of our products make the best gifts for the different people on your list:
Skin care gift ideas for newbies
When it comes to picking skin care, the process can be difficult for someone who's new to the skin care world. This person is usually someone who has been using the same cleanser or moisturizer for years because they aren't familiar with picking out new skin care products or is just used to keeping it simple!
If you're looking to get someone acquainted with a few basics or introducing someone to Annmarie Skin Care, start with our Basics Bundle! It's complete with three classic formulas to cleanse, nourish, and hydrate skin. It includes our Aloe Herb Cleanser, Anti-Aging Serum, and Herbal Facial Oil for Normal & Combination Skin. This bundle also includes a free 100% organic tote.
Gift Idea: Pick any of our Seasonal Bundles from our Bestsellers Bundle, Basics Bundle, or Teen Deluxe Bundle. They're all a great introduction to Annmarie Skin Care, plus they come with a free 100% organic tote!
Skin care gift ideas for the athletes
They’re always at hot zumba, cardio, yoga, or boxing, they’re always signed up for the next “Turkey Trot” or “Muddy Marathon,” and they pretty much always wake up earlier than you.
For someone who is regularly working up a sweat, preventing post workout breakouts and oiliness is often a main skin concern. When we sweat, our pores open up and can get clogged with whatever's nearby — dirt, oil, or makeup.
Our Body Bundle is the perfect thing to throw in a gym bag for a post-workout shower to remember. The Rosemary Body Wash is naturally cleansing, and can be used all over to prevent breakouts that emerge when you let sweat dry on your skin. The Coconut Body Oil and Radiant Skin Silk go on after you shower, for head to toe moisture that leaves you smelling amazing.
Skin care gift ideas for sensitive skin
Many people are drawn to our line because their sensitive skin reacts to chemicals in the skin care products they’ve tried. Because our products are plant-based and free of synthetic preservatives, they can be a breath of fresh air for those who have struggled with chemical brands in the past.
We have a few products in particular that we recommend to those with sensitive skin that needs extra love.
The Anti-Aging Serum does more than just keep the skin looking plump and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—it’s also incredibly soothing. With healing aloe vera and rose distillate, it even helps calm sensitive and oily skin — making it a safe bet for most everyone. The Coconut Honey Mask is another very soothing product. It’s one of our most simple formulas: honey, coconut oil, beeswax, and vanilla extract. The only person this might not work for is someone with very skin.
Gift Idea: Gift these two products together with other soothing things like a body massage brush or face brush, calming chamomile tea, or a pair of slippers.
Skin care gift ideas for people who love to pamper
They are known by name at the nail salon, they make sure to make time for a monthly massage, and their toiletry cabinet is bursting at the seams. This friend knows how to take care of themselves!
Our Self Care Bundle helps to immerse yourself in a wellness routine like no other, from decadent skin care to gorgeous aromatherapy. This bundle is perfect for giving your skin the TLC it deserves. It has everything anyone needs to help elevate their self-care routine from facial care to body care.
It includes our lavish Coconut Body Oil, ultra-beautifying Anti-Aging Eye Cream, and soothing Illuminating Pearl Mask. We’ve also included the Gua Sha Lifting Tool, Beauty Blend Tea (with our signature Tumbler!) , along with a tallow-based candle from Summer Solace Tallow.
If you're looking for smaller stocking stuffers, Gift them the Antioxidant Lip Balm or and the Charcoal Cacao Mask. Alone, these products shine in their own right. Together, they’re like a mini spa day.
This activated treatment mask infuses your skin with potent antioxidants, gentle clays and cooling botanicals to reveal a smooth and clear complexion. Hydrating aloe vera works to lock in moisture, while coconut charcoal draws out deep impurities. Turmeric's bioactive compounds leave your skin feeling calm, making this mask ideal for sensitivities. Cacao delivers complex nutrients for healthy skin, visibly improving texture, tone and radiance.
Skin care gift ideas for herb lovers
Their tea cabinet is more stocked than their refrigerator. They know the natural remedy for virtually anything. They own many flowy garments.
All of our skin care products are herb-infused (that’s the magic), but some are more herbaceous than others.
Our Ayurvedic Facial Scrub comes as a dry powder, because if it was packaged wet it would have too short of shelf life. That’s how fresh it is! Made up 100% of herbs, this product is a gentle exfoliator, so it works for even sensitive skin types. The smell is savory—fenugreek is one that stands out. You can mix it with your cleanser or water to use as a scrub, or leave it on for 15-20 minutes to experience it as a mask.
Our Beauty Blend Tea is a soul sister to our herb-obsessed skin care, and they both agree that beauty is fleshed out by the nutrition and nourishment of nature’s medicine.
Once brewed, it is a liquid ode to Earth’s bounty, starting with organic, hand-selected yerba mate, nettle, and horsetail. They can all stimulate and support a healthy glow from within due to their rich quantities of antioxidants, phytonutrients, and bioflavonoids.
Gift Idea: Give them herbs for the inside and out! You can pair our Beauty Blend Tea with Beekeeper's Naturals – B Powered Superfood Honey. It's the perfect way to fuel the mind and body.
Skin care gift ideas for the product junkie
They’ve tried everything. They know the latest anti-aging technology, the best brands, the miracle creams. Maybe they haven’t converted to organic skin care yet, because they don’t think it works.
When we see reviews from customers who are blown away that a chemical-free product could be so effective, we get a little warm and fuzzy inside. One product that seems to wow people again and again is our Citrus Stem Cell Serum, a treatment made to lighten your look and give an even tone.
For people who need a little extra care, the Citrus Stem Cell Serum can help them feel great about their complexion again. One of our most active products, the Citrus Stem Cell Serum contains orange-derived stem cells that reveal an even look to your skin tone. Aloe vera juice is the base for the product (rather than a water base, which is oh too common in even expensive skin care products), which also helps the skin.
Skin lightening products can often be harsh and permanently damaging to the skin, so we consider the Citrus Stem Cell Serum kind of a natural alternative.
If you're looking for something more luxurious, try our Phytonutrient Cleanser for an elevating cleansing experience or our Botanical Hydration Mist with Immortelle to awaken your skin with instant hydration.
Gift Idea: Along with the Citrus Stem Cell Serum, give them our Signature Serums, so they can try more of our best selling serums
