Christmas seasons with all the shopping and preparations can take a toll on our body and mind, and yet we do so little to take care of ourselves.
This year, as you go about ticking every item off your Christmas shopping list, don’t forget to treat yourself, too. And if you need inspirations as to what to buy, here are some indulgent beauty gift ideas to help you out!
1. Sephora Igloo Box Of Masks
We can’t always find time to go for a facial treatment, but this Igloo Box Of Masks from Sephora can make at-home pampering feel just as luxurious. In this set, you will find all varieties of masks you can think of, from face mask to masks for hair, lip, hand, and more. There’s even a pair of foot masks!
The Igloo Box Of Masks is available on Sephora at SGD39.
2. Drunk Elephant The Littles™ Kit
We often neglect our skincare while travelling in favour of experiencing all the amazing local food and culture, and the consequence is often tired, dull-looking skin and even breakouts. Avoid that mistake with The Littles™ Kit from Drunk Elephant. Featuring many of their best-selling products such as the C-Firma™ Day Serum and the T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Night Serum, this kit will be the ultimate solution for pampering on the go!
The Drunk Elephant The Littles™ Kit is available on Sephora at SGD128.
3. UMA OILS Pure Energy Wellness Oil
If you have been relying on caffeine to get you through the day, consider this essential oil from UMA OILS that helps boost your alertness and energy level. It contains a potent blend of many essential oils such as rosemary, ginger, frankincense, and more, to fight off physical and mental exhaustion.
The UMA OILS Pure Energy Wellness Oil retails for SGD70 for a 15ml bottle, available on Sephora.
4. L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil
It’s never too early for an anti-ageing skincare regime and if you are considering starting one, this essential oil blend from L’Occitane would make a great addition. The signature organic Immortelle essential oil in the ingredients delivers powerful anti-ageing properties that help combat signs of ageing such as wrinkles, dull and saggy skin. Your future self will thank you for this purchase!
The L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil is priced at SGD79 for a 15ml bottle, available on their website.
5. This Works With Sleep Comes Beauty Set
We all know how important sleep is to our body and mind, but very few of us actually get enough of it. This holiday season, give yourself the gift of restful deep sleep with the With Sleep Comes Beauty Set from This Works. The set features a bath soak, a shower gel, a pillow spray and a candle, all containing a powerful blend of essential oils which helps relax your mind and improve the quality of your sleep.
The This Works With Sleep Comes Beauty Set retails for SGD88 on Sephora.
6. Hourglass Nº 28™ Lip Treatment Oil
Nothing says indulgence like an 82-dollar lip balm, but this lip treatment oil from Hourglass is more than just your run-of-the-mill lip balm. It combines essential oils, vitamins and other active ingredients to keep your lips plump and moisturised as well as protect them from harmful environmental factors. It is also tinted so you don’t need to apply lipstick on top of it.

7. FOREO Luna 3
Make cleansing a part of your pampering session with the FOREO Luna 3. The soft silicone touchpoints on the device reach deep into your pores to clear away dirt, oil and dead skin cells. At the same time, the device provides pulsations, which you can control via the Luna app on your phone, to gently massage your skin.
The FOREO Luna 3 comes in three versions for normal, sensitive and combination skin. It retails for SGD299 on Sephora.
8. Canvas Jade Roller
Feel like a Chinese imperial lady with this Jade roller from Canvas Beauty. After applying your serum, roll this over different parts of your face in upward motions to massage the skin, improve blood circulation as well as ease off tension in your facial muscles. It also helps your serum to absorb better into the skin.
You can purchase this jade roller from Canvas’s website for SGD35.
9. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Foundation is one of the best gifts to get for yourself as you can’t really count on anyone else to get your correct shade. So this holiday season, why not treat yourself to a luxury foundation such as the Luminous Silk Foundation from Giorgio Armani? While many luxury makeup products don’t quite live up to their brand name, the Luminous Silk Foundation has consistently been one of the best selling foundations out there despite the price tag, so you know that you will get your money’s worth.
The foundation has a medium to full coverage and a satin finish that blends flawlessly into your skin, giving you a glow-from-within look. It retails for SGD90, available at all Giorgio Armani counters in Singapore.
10. Jo Malone Cologne Collection
A Jo Malone cologne will make a great gift for anyone. But you? You deserve five. The Jo Malone Cologne Collection features five of their signature scents in miniature versions: Lime Basil & Mandarin, English Pear & Freesia, Honeysuckle & Davana, Peony & Blush Suede, and Wood Sage & Sea Salt. You can use these individually or combine and layer for a scent that is uniquely yours.
The collection is available at all Jo Malone London boutiques islandwide.
