Beautycounter Holiday Gift Guide

Beautycounter’s Holiday Collection Launch and my top picks

The best holiday gifts to give but also keep for yourself!

Beautycounter recently launched its 2020 holiday sets and even though it still doesn’t even feel like fall in Southern California this holiday launch has me already excited and giddy for the holiday season. I’ll be sharing my top picks that you need to buy for yourself and my top picks for gift giving. If you are the type of person who knocks holiday shopping off early, you’ll totally want to have an add to cart kind of day. A few of these sets are perfect for stocking stuffers and great to break up to add to other gifts or give with a bottle of wine, plus they become more affordable that way.

As a Beautycounter consultant, I got to shop and try all the products early, so I have the inside scoop on the best of the clean beauty products in their holiday sets. You can also see Beautycounter’s full holiday collection here.

Top Picks to buy for yourself


Beautycounter Holiday Collection 2020Jellies

Beautycounter had these jellies last year and I was immediately obsessed. They provide the right amount of shine to lips, and the flavors are amazing. Plus they are so easy to apply without a mirror! I’ll be honest, last year I bought them to give away as gifts then ended up keeping them for myself. These are the perfect stocking stuffer, great to add a little something extra to a gift or tie on a bottle of wine for a little fun accessory. You can also hole-punch a hole in the top and add a fun keychain to a jelly which makes for a very unique gift!

My favorite jelly colors are the ones in the shimmer pack. Both are very gorgeous, and perfect for splitting up. Even just one little jelly with a holiday card is perfect for friends!

Golden Hour All-in-One Palette

Beautycounter Holiday Golden Hour All-In-One Palette

Since I have been a Beautycounter consultant, I haven’t seen a complete face palette and I am blown away at how gorgeous this is! It has four different shades of eye shadows, a blush, and a highlighter. I will be 100% guilty of keeping this for myself. This was probably what I was most excited about trying in the holiday collection.

Good Glow Body Duo

This duo comes with both the body polish and the illuminate body lotion which makes the perfect skin for the holiday season. Now we just need to hope that there are some holiday parties with cocktail dresses that we get to go to.

Top picks for gifting

Beyond Gloss Trio

Beautycounter Holiday Beyond Gloss

I will admit, I already had these shades of the gloss otherwise I would have probably had to keep them for myself too. Since I do have them (and love them) I know they will make a great gift. The gloss and packaging are beautiful and they will complement any skin.

Bright Side Duo

This duo has both of my skincare must-haves. The overnight resurfacing peel and the all bright c serum. They are products that are necessary for all skin types and compliment every skincare routine no matter the age. This is the best gift you could give your mom, sisters, or besties. If I had to recommend only one product from Beautycounter (SO hard!!) it could quite possibly be either of these. And the fact that these two products work hand in hand together and are packed together is a game-changer.

Special Edition Cleansing Balm

GUYS, I am obsessed with the cleansing balm. I use it daily and in the colder months where it’s dry out, my skin becomes extra dry which makes me lean on this balm even more. When it’s extra dry – this balm can even be used as an overnight mask. This special edition balm is incredible because it’s pretty much doubling the size of the normal cleaning balm which makes it much more bang for your buck.

Good Scents Hand Cream Trio

Like the jellies, this set is perfect to break up. With the current state of our world PLUS cold and flu season, everyone will be washing their hands even more which makes this set so essential. The sizes are perfect to keep in your car, desk, or your purse. This is a great gift for healthcare workers, hairstylists, or people who are coming in contact with people and needing to wash their hands more frequently than your average person.

Beautycounter Holiday Collection Shopping Tips

I joined and became a Beautycounter consultant right around the time that their holiday collection came out, I was warned that the sets would sell out, and I didn’t believe them. They were right, I was wrong…so many good products that I had every intention of buying and trying sold out. Don’t make my mistake and if you know there are any products you plan on buying the shop sooner rather than later.

Beautycounter’s holiday gits make gifting so easy and fun. I know the products are high quality and it’s already packaged so beautifully. Beautycounter’s products aren’t your typical skincare/beauty products, they’re clean so you feel no guilt. Plus, all these gifts come in a holiday gift box so all you need to add is a bow, and you are set.
