I think it’s a do, but if you’re going go there, you have to be very thoughtful with the gift.
A long time ago
in a galaxy far away, I read somewhere that if you’re going to give a gift, chances are, if it’s a gift you’d like to receive, then you’re on the right track.
I would absolutely LOVE a thoughtful skin care gift, so it’s one of the things I like giving to people!
But it’s not like I’m wrapping up bottles of Kate Somerville Anti-Bac acne treatment, though, LOL! I know that most people are particular about their skin care products, so I try to give skin care gifts that I think they’d like or at least want to try.
My go-to gift lately has been the Laneige Lip Mask. Not only do I love it and use it every day, I feel like dry lips are pretty much a universal issue, so it’s one of those nice little extras that everyone could appreciate. If I have a friend with a birthday or someone who I want to say thank you to, it’s one of my favorite gifts to give.
If I know the gift recipient has a very specific skin care regimen which limits what skin care they use on their face, then I’ll try to give them a indulgent body care gift, like a fancy hand or body cream they’d probably never buy for themselves.
Of course, I always include a gift receipt so they can return it, and I try to make it as easy for them by buying it from a store that I know they have easy access to.
How about you? How do you feel about giving skin care gifts?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Hope your Wednesday is going great so far!
