We all know how important a good night's sleep is for looking and feeling our best and one way to up your beauty sleep game is with this beauty sleep set from Cilque. "It’s made from 100 percent lustrous silk, and you can feel the high quality at the first buttery-soft touch," shares senior commerce editor Jasmine. "Not only is silk said to be a good material for acne-prone skin (which I have), but my hairstylist recommends silk and satin pillowcases to help preserve braids and twists and to protect my curly/natural hair from frizz and breakage better than traditional cotton pillowcases. The soft and breathable silk material of both these products made me drift off to sleep way faster than usual, and, to no surprise, the increase in quality sleep has left me feeling way more energized."

Lifestyle editor Ella knows that a well-organized beauty collection is a happy one and swears by this rotating makeup organizer to keep essentials neat and on display. "Not only does this one match my acrylic drawers, it also allows me to spin the piece around to find products I need or might have overlooked. This is also helpful for products you need to store upright, or even upside down, such as a felt-tipped eyeliner."

There's nothing better than a great sustainable beauty product and house tours editor Adrienne swears by this set from Dieux. "I LOVE my Dieux forever eye masks," she shares. "They are reusable and are marketed to help your products absorb into your skin more. You can also use them to hack a killer cat eye with eyeliner and they come in a cute storage box, too."

Red-light therapy is a dermatologist and aesthetician favorite, helping with skin concerns like fine lines, acne, scarring, puffiness, and uneven skintone. The award-winning SolaWave lets you bring the treatment home and doubles as a microcurrent and facial massage tool for rejuvenated skin from the comfort of your own bathroom.

Looking to bring that coveted salon massage at home? Commerce contributor Olivia found a way — and it did way more than just provide a relaxing massage. "Nothing — and I mean nothing — has ever soothed my dandruff like this thing," she shares. "I mourn the years I spent agonizing over my scalp when the solution was right there, and for less than $10." To top it off, these brushes are also great for preventing greasiness, stimulating hair growth, and removing stubborn product buildup. With its compact size and affordable price point, this brush is bound to find its way into tons of people's hands (and showers) this holiday season.

Crown Affair

I've never been a fan of hair towels — that is until I tried this one from Crown Affair. Made from a thin, high-quality custom waffle-knit microfiber, this towel is a total gamechanger. It's gentle on my curls, helps prevent frizz, and features an elastic strap (say so long to those annoying button closures that always pull on hair) for a comfortable fit that stays in place. The best part? It cut my drying time in half. What a win!

Soko Glam
was $67.00

Without fail, whenever I use British M's Annatto Hair Oil, I get complimented on how healthy, shiny, and smooth my hair looks. A cult-favorite, this luxe hair oil is one of my favorite beauty items to gift as this bottle lasts forever. It also leaves behind a lovely light scent that'll have your giftee sniffing the air around them all day.

Not only is Parachute's Cloud Cotton Robe an AT staff favorite, but it's also so popular that one sold every 60 seconds last Black Friday! Made from a premium, long-staple Turkish cotton, this robe is soft, light, and absorbent and comes in eight chic colors.

A favorite of senior commerce editor Alicia, who stumbled upon this sink topper on TikTok originally and was stupefied by "how simple (and genius) it was," this find is a must for beauty obsesses with limited counter space. Available in both a small and large size, the porous mat turns your sink into a ventilated tabletop. "It solved my small-sink counter-space problem flawlessly and created a flat space for me to rest my skincare and makeup products without worrying about knocking them into the sink.”

Microblading can cost a pretty penny, but perfect brows are closer than you or your giftee think thanks to the KS&CO Microfeathering Brown Pen. Designed by famed celebrity brow artist Kristie Streicher, this pen delivers the most realistic, hairlike brush strokes (as well as nourishing ingredients like Biotin, Red Algae Extract, and Red Clover Extract) making this the best gift for anyone looking to seriously up their brow game.

By Rosie Jane

Whenever a guest stays over, I always get asked the same question: "Where did you get that body wash in your shower?" Made with clean ingredients and featuring a light scent, this body wash from By Rosie Jane features a blend of lavender, chamomile, yuzu, and neroli for a soothing wash that won't strip your skin but will leave you calm and ready for a sweet slumber.

The past Christmas, I was gifted an electric makeup brush cleaner, and let me tell you, it was the best gift I received. Keeping makeup brushes is important for both the health of your skin and the brushes, but manually doing it takes so much time and they take even longer to dry afterward. With this set, you get different-sized attachments so the device can hold all of your brushes, a handy bowl to keep all your dirty water from splashing around, and the ability to spin brushes dry so you can use them immediately! If you've got a beauty lover on your shopping list, this is one gift you can be sure they'll love unwrapping.

Here at Apartment Therapy, we're big fans of advent calendars and one in the beauty space that we always look forward to is Sephora's annual holiday drop — and it's finally here! This year's calendar is called '25 Days of Beauty Must-Haves' and features an array of Sephora collection makeup, skincare, bath, and accessories hidden in the 25 boxes, so you can fill up on all things beauty before year's end.

Anyone who wears makeup knows that the worst part of wearing makeup is taking it off at the end of the day. Luckily, commerce contributor Grace found a solution that makes it easy on you and your wallet. "These cloths truly work miracles," she shares "All you need to do is run them under water, and in seconds you’ll be makeup-free. You can also use them with your face wash for tougher makeup. But honestly, in years of using them, water has always worked just fine for me. And because they’re microfiber, they’re machine-washable and super durable."

I'm all about finding ways to bring the spa experience home and there's no better way to do that than with a personal facial steamer. I'm a huge fan of this Vanity Planet pick year-round, but it comes in especially handy come the drier months of fall and winter. Adding moisture to the skin in just 10 minutes, your beauty routine will be forever changed. Plus, it comes with additional nozzles that allow you to infuse aromatherapy into your session for a truly relaxing beauty moment.

Everyone deserves a mask night, something Shopping Director Jada knows with this Kiehl's set she keeps on a gifting rotation. Wrapped in festive packaging, the Merry Masking set comes with the brands' Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask, the Calendula Petal-Infused Calming Mask, and the Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask for everything you need to unwind, no matter the skin concern.

Olive & June

Over the last year and a half, many of us were forced to learn how to care for our nails at home. Something that helped me out tremendously was this set for Olive & June. I was gifted it in the middle of the pandemic and adore it! This set comes with everything you need to become an expert manicurist at home, including a nail clipper, nail file, nail buffer, acetone-free polish remover, a cleanup brush, cuticle serum, a top coat, a polish, and Olive & June's iconic Poppy bottle holder that makes getting the perfect grip a dream.

Every beauty collection needs a good red lip kit and no one does a red lip quite like Smashbox. This limited-edition holiday kit includes two of its most iconic red products: the Be Legendary Line & Prime Pencil in True Red and the Always On Liquid Lipstick in Bawse for a look that lasts 12 hours with no flaking, bleeding or feathering. Oh, and we should mention: it makes a great stocking stuffer.

Got a giftee who's been toying with the idea of laser hair removal? Gift them the Ulike IPL Laser Hair Remover. Like other at-home devices, this device destroys hair at the root using light energy, reducing hair regrowth with each subsequent use. What makes this device stand out from the rest is its ice-cooling technology that cools skin on contact, protecting it from any possible injuries for worry-free use, everytime.

We know, we know, it's generally frowned upon to gift people a cleaning tool unless they ask for it, but hear me out. The Denman Hairbrush Cleaner is the beauty tool most people don't know they need. Before I discovered this brush, cleaning my hairbrushes was a painstaking time grab that involved scissors, tweezers, an extra toothbrush, and a 30-minute soak. And even with all that, my brushes never looked as good as they do now. I've already gifted it to a couple of friends and family members and to say they were thrilled would be an understatement!

I'm a huge fan of Davines and one product I consistently gift to friends and family is its Miracle Conditioner. Perfect for anyone in need of a deep conditioning treatment but not looking to head to the salon, this product revives hair leaving it super soft, shiny, and manageable. And like the rest of its product, it features a light lovely scent that'll leave you feeling like you just bounced out of the salon, all from the comfort of your home!

22 / 23

Keep your daily makeup kit organized with one of the best cosmetic bags around: the Kusshi. It holds a crazy amount of products and features an array of pockets, zippers, and compartments so there's a place for everything and everything's in its place. Best of all, it comes in three sizes and various colors/materials meaning there's an option for everyone.

The Dyson AirWrap is a pricey spend, but is it worth it? AT staffers seem to think so! Features director Arie recently got her hands on one and shared, "My hair has not looked this great since my last haircut (a year and a half ago now!)" while tools editor Riddley called it a worthwhile spend, sharing, "I feel like it's the bang for your buck with the dryers and curlers and other attachments!" And as for me, the Airwrap has become an essential part of my daily hair routine, replacing most of my hot styling tools; if you're looking for a sign to join the pack and pick up this device, consider this it.
