With gift-giving season in full swing, this gift guide is for that person in your life that keeps Sephora on speed-dial. I'm sharing my favorite head-to-toe products including everything from stocking stuffers to big-ticket items. These are essential to my skincare drawer, and make perfect gifts even for yourself if you need a new regimen.

Beauty Blender: This beauty blender is a must for any beauty lover on your list. The unique shape and exclusive material offers impeccable, streak-free application with minimal product waste. The material also repels moisture unlike similar sponge designs, so it lasts far longer than leading brands.

OLEHENRIKSEN A Brighter Truth Brightening Essentials Set: This three-piece gift set contains of OleHenriksen's top products: Truth Serum, C-Rush gel creme, and Face the Truth gel cleanser. They are by far my favorite skincare products in my collection. Face the Truth gel cleanser is a simple face cleanser that works with all skin types. Truth Serum gives your face a boost of energy and radiance. C-Rush gel creme is my favorite moisturizer of all time with no greasy appearance, only all-day moisture.

OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum: Just like in the set, this truth serum is the full-sized product. OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum is a powerful antiaging serum formulated with vitamin C and collagen for brightening and all-day hydration.

LANCOME BIENFAIT UV SPF 50+ Super Fluid Facial Sunscreen: We absolutely love this sunscreen! It is a fast-absorbing, oil-free facial sunscreen that delivers SPF 50+ protection to shield your skin from both UVA and UBV rays. This sunscreen protects to sustain a guilt-free day in the sun. This is a very lightweight formula that is perfect to wear over any moisturizer, under makeup, or alone. This sunscreen works for all skin types, even super sensitive skin.

JACK BLACK The Balmshell: This emollient balm, enriched with superior skin conditioners and antioxidants, soothes and relieves dry, chapped, irritated lips. Unlike waxy sticks, Intense Therapy Lip Balm quickly penetrates for instant relief. SPF 25 offers optimum sun protection while guarding against windburn and extreme temperatures. 

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Activated Charcoal Treatment: This is one of my all-time favorite face masks. Activated-X charcoal targets all of the common skin concerns including acne, blemishes, redness, scars, razor bumbs and in-grown hair. Formulated with a blend of glycolic, salicylic, lactic, mandelic, pyruvic and tartaric acid, SUPERMUD minimizes pores and evens out your skin tone for your best glow to shine through.

OLAPLEX Hair Perfector No. 3: This hair perfecter is not a conditioner and is not a mask, it is a product to apply to your hair in the shower after conditioner and leave in for a hot second to work its magic. This is a staple in my cosmetic cabinet. Every time I get my hair colored (and anytime my hair feels dry in general) I apply this treatment. It is like a magic wand in a bottle to restore dry, brittle hair to its perfect state.

FRESH Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator: This exfoliator is great for all skin types including sensitive skin. The brown sugar and strawberry seeds remove rough patches and then dissolve in the nourishing oils, leaving your skin velvety soft and smooth long after washing. My favorite part of this exfoliator is the scent that smells good enough to eat.

GLAMGLOW POUTMUD Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment: This lip treatment is a multi-action lip scrub that both fizzes and exfoliates. Enriched with Caribbean cane sugar, Hawaiian sea salt, and hibiscus flower powder, this lip treatment provides maximum exfoliation, while an antioxidant-rich tropical fruit blend of sweet almond oil, guava, cherimoya, star fruit, lychee, and mangosteen replenishes and nourishes lips.

Kiehel's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque: Formulated with ingredients from the mouth of the Amazonian River, this cleansing face mask effectively absorbs oil while drawing out toxins and dirt that can clog pores.

Bumble and bumble. Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer: I have been using this product for years. It holds up to its name, protecting the hair from extreme natural (such as sunlight) and artificial (such as flat-iron) temperatures. As someone who flat-irons their hair every single day, I need a product that seriously protects my hair. I have yet to discover a product as efficient as Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer.

PHILOSOPHY Hope is in your Hands: The Hope line by PHILOSOPHY has always been one of my favorites. The scent of the entire line is so refreshing. The silky, fast-absorbing formula delivers continuous moisture with skin-loving ingredients. Instantly, skin feels replenished and moisturized; hands, cuticles, and nails appear more luminous and healthy-looking (and smell incredible).

DRYBAR Three Rounds of Detox: Detox Dry Shampoo absorbs oils and leaves hair fresh between washes, while Detox Dry Conditioner weightlessly detangles, softens, and hydrates dry ends. Both come in a new lush scent. Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam is an ultra-light dry shampoo foam that absorbs oils, leaving hair bouncy and refreshed.

FRESH Sugar Lemon Body Lotion: Thanks to the therapeutic qualities of real brown sugar, FRESH Sugar Lemon Body Lotion leaves the skin feeling dewy and soft. The light, supple texture of this superb body moisturizer makes it easy to use any time of the day, in any climate.

First Aid Beauty All You Need is FAB: From cleansing to exfoliating to hydrating, this FAB set is really all you need to keep your skin looking its best self. I absolutely love this kit, especially in the winter. This First Aid Beauty kit will really deliver the aid your skin needs during the harsh winter months.
