Your December beauty gift guide

A beachside summer Christmas

Oh come all ye faithful Daily Addict beauties, here are a few of our favourite gift ideas for you and for someone you love. If you’re fast, you’ll get them by Christmas to wrap and pop under the tree. 

The ultimate silk pillowcase – Silvi 

This is a world first and therefore a great gift! The Silvi Pillowcase is the first silk pillowcase to be treated with natural silver, which is clinically proven to eliminate 99.7% of acne causing bacteria. In 30 days the pillow reduces clogged pores & inflammation, boosts collagen and helps your hair. It’s made from 100% Mulberry silk and coated in antibacterial silver. 

May sound like an overpromise. It’s not. I haven’t shared this before (upcoming vulnerable moment, Brene).  but why I love beauty products so much is because I am obsessed with my skin. Mostly because I have had adult acne. It’s the pits (lol, inside acne joke). I’m always on the hunt for something give me porcelain perfect skin or  just improve how it looks and feels. Having slept on the Silvi pillow for 30 days my skin is visibly better. Redness reduced and any hints of pimples seem to go overnight. I don’t want to say it’s magic, but I’m in awe. The Silvi Pillowcase is also beautifully luxurious to sleep on. This is a wonderful gift for anyone who may have problem skin or anyone who wants soft hair each morning. Probably best to get one for everyone you know. 

This gift really keep on giving…acne free skin

Currently $89 (was $109) available here.

Be stung by Burt’s Bees 

We are all at DA head over heels in love with Burt and his Bees. Burt’s Bees scours the earth to find the most natural, effective ingredients to put in its products  – from the popular lip care to hair and skin care. Burt’s Bees has been pioneering natural skin care and they never test their products on animals. Most product packaging is created from recycled materials or has been designed with recycling in mind. 

The greatest thing about the range are no awful ingredients so no parabens, silicons, artificial colours or petrochemicals. 

This year they have gift boxes and gift packs for you, or for the one you love. The single products make for amazing stocking stuffers or hamper fillers. The lip scrub and lip balm are winners if you know someone who loves lipstick, having a smooth base is the first start to luscious lips. The Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream is thick and rich and highly effective. Add this to your own gift basket! The Milk and Honey Body Lotion is creamy and luxurious with a light scent encapsulating fresh and clean; it’s the perfect product to use after a long soak in the bath.

Care for your hair with Revlon Eksperience 

If you know someone who is a water baby, or someone who is outdoorsy who also loves their locks, the Revlon Eksperience Sun Pro range is a comprehensive set of products to use before and after exposure to the sun, chlorine or salt to protect, moisturise and nourish the hair. 

Some products to include in your gift pack are the instant two-phase hydrating conditioner  – which is used to detangle hair and reduce static and flyaways, also leaves hair soft and shiny.  Also add the Marine Shower Hair Cleanser has natural marine extracts to cleanse hair after exposure to the sun. Finish off the gift pack with the Marine Protective Cream should be used after you clean your hair to protect it from the elements. 

Having used this suite of products as after swim care, they do improve the texture and shine of the hair. No more dry and sunburnt hair or hours retreating your hair. These are fast and effective.

Redefine your skin with Rodan + Fields 

We also love Rodan + Fields at DA. For the skin obsessed person in your life, the new comprehensive redefine range will be the pinnacle of gifts. The comprehensive regimen works 3x better and 2x faster on wrinkles and visibly lifts, sculpts and firms the skin. The range reduces fine lines and tightens the pores. 

The three step regimen that brings together retinoid science, botanical extracts and peptide technology across a clay cleanser, pore refining toner, triple defence cream SPF 15 and an overnight restorative cream.

Aside from the high-functioning regimen, the packaging is gift ready, much like the entire range. 

It’s a beautiful present giving younger, smoother and firmer skin. 

Give the gift of reduced wrinkles and tightened pores
