Beauty Tops Offerings for Holiday 2013

By Melissa Meisel, Associate Editor | November 18, 2013

Take a look at these novel new gift ideas.

Naughty & Nice

Bodycology’s Naughty & Nice Sampler Sets ($9.88, available exclusively at Walmart) features a 2oz body cream and 2oz fragrance mist in the most popular Naughty & Nice Scents—Secret Addiction, Sweet Seduction and Sexy Tease.

Down to Earth

Éminence Organic Skin Care introduces two limited edition gift sets for unique holiday gift ideas. The Clementine Spice Gift Set ($30) for the hands and body features a silky hand and cuticle cream moisturizer as well as an antioxidant-rich body moisturizer. The Pear & Fig Gift Set ($34) contains organic facial skin care products that are perfectly formulated for all skin types. Each gift set includes an exclusive entry code to win a grand prize trip for two to the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa in Hawaii. The winner will enjoy luxurious accommodations and Éminence Organic Skin Care facial treatments at the Na Ho’ola Spa.

Pretty Pumpkin

Jan Marini Skin Research Holiday Exfoliator in Pumpkin Spice ($80) is formulated with glycolic acid and proteolytic enzymes. This scrub is said to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and also refine skin texture as it brightens the complexion.

Fast as Lightning

The Whitening Lightning Super Booster Whitening Pen ($79) is designed for people on the go who want to brighten their smiles. Forget about strips and trays, whiten teeth with the ease of a pen. Simply dry teeth and brush a small amount of gel on and smile for 60 seconds. The gel will dry completely and you can easily go about your day or hit the hay – brush off a few hours later and see the results. Teeth will look 7 to 10 shades lighter in just 14 days, said the company.

Good as Gold

If you can’t afford a gold necklace, give her the next best thing…gold for her skin. Orogold 24K Travel Daily Essentials Kit ($218) includes the brand’s signature 24K Deep Day Moisturizer, 24K Deep Peeling and 24K Cell Renewal Night Cream in “travel-friendly” sizes. All the products are made with 24K gold along with vitamin E, C and green tea.

US consumers intend to spend an average of $646 on gifts this holiday season, which would represent an 11% increase over what they planned to spend, on average, in 2012, according to Accenture’s latest holiday shopping survey. Additionally, the survey shows that the appeal of Black Friday shopping for consumers has reached a five-year high and Thanksgiving Day has emerged as an established holiday season selling event. Here’s a look at some novel offerings in the personal care category.
