Pura Botanicals' Face Rollers

Face rollers have jumped in popularity this year and are quickly becoming a vital part of our skin care routines. They’re designed to boost blood circulation, increase elasticity, reduce puffiness and diminish fine lines, but if you take one step further and use a roller of a particular stone, you could get some added benefits from that particular stone as well. Enter, Pura Botanicals. A creator of cruelty-free, eco-friendly skin care, Pura Botanicals has created a line of face rollers made from jade, amethyst, pink quartz, crystal quartz, tiger’s eye, and black obsidian. Each stone provides different benefits such as slowing down the aging process, repairing sensitive skin, and promoting self-confidence. The best part? Each stone has increased benefits for specific zodiac signs as well. It’s the perfect way to add some personal flair when gifting to your loved ones.

Pura Botanicals Face Rollers, available online, ranging from $344.55 – $501.17

Charlotte Tilbury's Dreamy Eye Kit

There’s nothing that says holidays like a little bit of shimmer and shine, and the Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Eye Kit helps tick that box. This season, Charlotte Tilbury has coupled two of their most popular eyeshadows to create the perfect sparkly kit. Inspired by eye-widening filters on social media, the Bigger Brighter Eyes palette is perfect for creating the illusion of wider, brighter-looking eyes, and if you’re looking for a more subtle, sunset-inspired look opt for Eyes to Mesmerize instead. Regardless of what you choose, both options are stunning and sure to see any girl through party season and beyond!

Red lipsticks and lip balms are perfect accessories for the holiday season. But how much cooler would it be if they were also infused with antioxidants?

Their red tinted lip balm contains these amazing ingredients and will add a hint of red to your lips while leaving them smooth and hydrated.

Vanderohe Face Oil at The Slow Mode

The perfect stocking filler for any woman in your life with skin sensitised by the environment (yes, Hong Kong pollution, we mean you)Vanderohe was founded by Olivia Thorpe after she spent years struggling with her own skin issues and sensitivities to synthetic fragrances. She still hand-blends, dates and packages every box herself from the U.K to maintain premium quality. This oil (with its unique blend of organic Frankincense, Rosehip, Neroli, Lavender, Apricot Kernel, Grapeseed, Rose Geranium, Myrrh, Rose Otto, Cedarwood, and Chamomile) works to combat inflammation, and soothe oily, acne-prone and dry skin. Its super concentrated formula means you only need a few drops for each application, so this tiny bottle should last a good few weeks.

Vanderohe Face Oil, available online for $900.29
