While there may have been times where you felt this year would never end, ‘tis finally here: the holiday season is upon us! A BSE goodie is one of the best gifts you can offer someone you love, because everyone in your life deserves to feel good in their skin.
To facilitate your gift-giving process and to help you choose exactly the right products, we’ve put together a little guide based on skin type and preferences––meaning that we have a gift for each person in your life, depending on their skincare concerns and the kind of products they like best.
Without further ado, let’s get down to the holiday business.
FOR THE SKINCARE NEWBIE…
With acne-prone or oily skin:
This starter kit has all your loved ones will need to fight future breakouts or 2021 maskne. This simple, 2-step system visibly reduces whiteheads and blackheads for a clearer, more unified complexion after just a few weeks.
With sensitive skin:
COMFORT ZONE - ESSENTIAL PEELING $51
The gift of luminous and soft skin: Comfort Zone’s exfoliant/mask eliminates impurities, superficial dead skin cells and excess sebum thanks to its delicate enzymatic action. It is ideal for sensitive skins and recommended for those living in cold climates.
VIVIER SKIN - TRIPLE PROTECTION SUNSCREEN SPF 30 $48
This broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen is ideal for those with particularly sensitive skin. This SPF 30 is enriched with powerful antioxidants, and we love how all Vivier products are made right here in Canada!
With dry skin:
This gentle, milky lotion is a 2-in-1 cleanser and eye make-up remover. When used day and night, it gently eliminates make-up, softens the skin, and brings a luxurious sensation of comfort. Since we all tend to have dryer skin in the wintertime, lotion-cleansers are highly recommended––so you can’t go wrong with this stocking stuffer!
The H.A. Intensifier is a multi-beneficial corrective serum that contains a high concentration of pure hyaluronic acid. The high levels of HA support the skin’s natural barrier and deliver deep hydration––helping to firm, smooth, and plump the skin’s surface. With regular use, it reduces the look of crow’s feet, smile lines, and forehead lines.
While it is ideal for all skin types, those with particularly dry skin will highly benefit from the high dose of HA (the most hydrating ingredient out there!)
VIVIER SKIN - HYDRATED SKIN GIFT SET $272 (Reg. $350)
This amazing gift set includes both the C E Peptides serum and a LEXXEL® moisturizer. A free Vivier Radiant Eye Contour Cream comes with each set!
FOR THE SKINCARE OBSESSED:
Anyone who loves skincare will be more than delighted to receive a gift certificate for one of our virtual consultations. By booking an appointment at the time of their convenience, from the comfort of their own home, your loved ones will meet with one of our skincare professionals who will help them figure out which types of products will work best for the results they want.
With no further purchase necessary, we promise to work together in order to come up with a personalized regimen for the best possible skincare journey.
FOR THE SELF-CARE GURU:
