The one who loves self-care

fizz the season kit holiday

Although we believe self-care should play a role in every person’s skincare routine, some skincare lovers thrive when they lean into the way a sheet mask helps them relax. They want a pampering, spa-like experience when they use their skincare – they set the mood, indulge in rich chocolates or fizzy cocktails, put their feet up, and enjoy the vibe.

For this type of skincare lover, we recommend Fizz The Season – our limited edition self-care kit that includes a foot mask, 2 types of eye gels, and a sheet mask. With this kit, they can wrap their toes in the effervescent Rosé Toes - a pink bubbly foot treatment that softens and smoothes dry feet. Then they can pull out the eye gel that fits their needs best that day – the On Ice Eye Gels cool and depuff tired eyes, while the Bubbly Eye Gels provide an instant brightening and anti-aging effect from the orange extract, resveratrol, and niacinamide.

Last but not least, our fan-favorite Rosé Sheet Mask will blow them away. Serve Chilled Rosé Sheet Masks are formulated with strawberry extract to help protect from environmental stressors and deeply hydrate, all while enlightening the senses with the light scent of rosé.

Fizz The Season Kit - $25

  • 1 Rosé Toes
  • 1 On Ice Eye Gels
  • 1 Bubbly Eye Gels
  • 2 Rosé Sheet Mask 

Pro-tip: Want to gift a luxury spa experience? We highly recommend our Cloud Nine Kit ($48) and Rosé All Day ($62) for indulgent masks centered around pampering the body from head to toe. 

The one who thrives on routine

Everyone has that type A friend in their life who thrives on list-making and routines. If they have time to pop on eye gels while they go about their hectic morning routine, they feel like they have their life together. 

Dawn to Dusk - AM and PM eye gels kit

dawn to dusk gift kit

For this skincare lover, we recommend Dawn to Dusk – a dynamic duo of both AM and PM eye gels that treat under-eye concerns in just 5 minutes. The AM eye gels are loaded with caffeine, hyaluronic acid, and hydrolyzed collagen to tackle puffiness and deliver a hit of essential moisture to the undereye area. These hydrogel patches are infused with a potent blend of active ingredients, carefully formulated to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. As if these eye gels weren’t perfect enough with their ability to firm, brighten, and you then the under eye before sunrise, this kit also comes with PM patches. 

The restoring night eye gels are loaded with retinol and peptides to work on dark circles and fine lines. These innovative eye patches are infused with a blend of potent botanicals and hydrating ingredients to help reduce signs of fatigue and promote a smoother, more hydrated eye area. 

This is your routine-oriented bestie’s favorite way to start and end every day.

The Skin Cycling Kit

If your skincare-loving friend enjoys following instructions and seeing results like most type A’s do, then they will definitely enjoy The Skin Cycle – a self-care kit with 3 days of sheet masks to reset and renew the skin cycle. 

This skin cycling kit contains three facial sheet masks: Exfoliate Mate, Beauty Sleep Hydrogel Mask, and Hydrate FlashMasque. Each mask plays a significant role in the skin cycling process and will reveal a glowing, polished complexion after 3 consistent days of use. 

On day 1, apply Exfoliate Mate to remove dead skin cells. The Exfoliate Mate Sheet Mask has natural enzymes such as papaya and pineapple extract along with AHA (lactic acid) to gently exfoliate the skin and slough off dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion.

On day 2, the Beauty Sleep Hydrogel Mask will smooth fine lines and wrinkles with retinol and peptides, while also hydrating and nourishing the skin overnight. Since the skin is in the rejuvenating phase, it will be most receptive to active ingredients which makes it the perfect time to use this sheet mask.

On days 3 and 4, finish the skin cycling phase with the Hydrate FlashMasque to boost hydration with a dose of hyaluronic acid. Reveal plump skin and a dewy glow at last! Any missing moisture in the skin will be replenished in this final step. 

If you know someone who would love to wake up with remarkably transformed, youthful-looking skin, this is the gift for them. 

Skin Cycling Kit - $25

Remember your manners when gifting skincare

As we mentioned earlier, our skin is a very personal thing, although it may not seem like it since it’s on display for the world to see. We all carry insecurities about sensitive topics such as aging, acne, scars, skin conditions, etcetera. It’s never a good idea to gift something based on an insecurity someone may have. Be thoughtful and intentional when purchasing skincare gifts to avoid purchasing a gift that may highlight an insecurity rather than encourage a positive attribute about someone.

Give the gift of self-care this season

Skincare is such an amazing gift because it’s universal, gender neutral, and its benefits are long-lasting. The confidence that some under-eye gels can give you before a gathering or the sense of calm a 10-minute sheet mask can unlock in a moment of panic is priceless. When you gift someone a face mask, you’re gifting them a serene moment, a happy memory, and a little slice of heaven without even realizing it.
