Before we get carried away shopping let me lay out the details of the sale. This is the time to stock up on your favs and gifts for others as the more you spend the more you save!
BLUEMERCURY HOLIDAY PARTY (In store from 11/29 to 12/8)
- 10% OFF $100
- 15% OFF $175
- 20% OFF $250
For the past 3 years I’ve gone into Bluemercury and shopped all their holiday kits. I’ve tried, tested and worn so many of their favorites that have now become my favorites. This year I thought it would fun to do things a bit differently. I’m breaking down 4 gifting categories to make shopping easier for you. These are my top 4 categories for when I’m shopping the best holiday gifts at Bluemercury.
GIFTS UNDER $35 (Stocking stuffers/Teacher gifts/Gal pals/Etc)
KIEHL’S ULTRA HYDRATORS | KIEHL’S HYDRATION STARTER KIT | KIEHL’S HEALTHY HANDS | KIEHL’S KISS ME LIP BALMS
Some like to go big, but me? I love to give smaller more curated gifts filled with my favorites. Stocking stuffers are my jam and Bluemercury has THE BEST in this department. Hot buys in this department are any of these Kiehl’s gift sets. Lips, hands, body — all so soothing, great smell and come on. Who doesn’t love Kiehl’s?
ORIBE DRY STYLING COLLECTION | ORIBE GOLD LUST SET | CHRISTOPHE ROBIN HEALTHY GLOW SET | SLIP GIFT SET
Bluemercury is the only place I shop for my haircare products. They have all the best brands but during the holidays you can score some crazy great deals on their gift sets. I have been using the Gold Lust by Oribe and this kit has a great savings. I also love the Dry Styling kit. Old holy grail favorite. And I’ve shared Christophe Robin with you before and have you told you what a fan I am of this shampoo. Nothing and I mean nothing gets your scalp cleaner than this sea salt scrub. Worth every penny and this set also includes the hair mask. Lastly, the Slip kit makes a nice gift. If you aren’t sleeping with a silk pillowcase yet then you are missing out. Your hair and skin will thank you once you make the switch.
FOR THE GIRL WHO HAS EVERYTHING
That would be me haha! I know. Some girls are just hard to buy for. You want to give them something they don’t have but will actually use. If you have one of these girls on your list I’d suggest the luxury gift set from Laura Mercier, the Ski Essentials kit by Dr. Barbara Sturm (great for dry winter skin), or the Nest Pura gift set will get her home smelling amazing AND it’s all run by Iphone.
But one of the best holiday gifts at Bluemercury that I saw and one that is going on my own Christmas list is the Skincare Fridge. Super compact for going in your bathroom and will store all your moisturizers and serums. Keeping those items cool will not only prolong their shelf life but it feels amazing when you apply chilled moisturizer to your face. Hint hint Santa, um Erik. Want! Need! Gotta have!
THE MAKEUP JUNKIE
And finally we can’t forget the makeup junkie. Might be you. Might be your sister. In any case, I found some of the best holiday beauty gifts for those makeup loving girls. Starting out with this gorgeous palette from Lune+Aster. Limited edition and filled with gorgeous neutrals that can be worn both day and night.
But if you really want to WOW them then by all means the Trish McEvoy planner is a homerun. Trish puts out this exclusive planner every year and I think this might be my 3rd year getting it. Filled with all of Trish’s essentials and new favorites. Everything you need for holiday looks and everyday looks. Has my holy grail Eye Base Essentials (eye primer) and Instant Eye Lift (concealer) along with shadow, lipstick, mascara and more. If you know a true makeup lover then this will blow her socks off!
I don’t know about you but I love getting sample size products. This is hands down the #1 way I learn about new products that then become everyday favorites. Bluemercury has 2 holiday gift bags to choose from this year. The Exclusive Holiday Beauty Lover Set is priced at $99 and you get a mix of must haves and bestsellers from luxury brands like Trish McEvoy, R&Co, Patchology, Nest and more. The Exclusive Holiday Beauty Junkie Set is priced at $199 and this one includes cult favorites from the most popular of luxury beauty brands such as Hourglass, Laura Mercier, SLIP, Oribe, La Mer and more.
And one last discovery I found when looking for the best holiday beauty gifts at Bluemercury is the M-61 Vitablast C 20% Cream. Last year I fell in love with The PowerGlow Peel and this year I’m digging this cream. This advanced 20% stabilized vitamin C cream helps to support collagen production, even skin tone, diminish the look of dark spots and leaves you with a super hydrated glow. Regardless of what skincare regimen someone is on this can be worked in and will work wonders. Vitamin C is a MUST HAVE for your skin! And speaking of must have. The Holiday Treasures bag (pictured on the left) is complimentary with your $175 purchase.
One stop and I’m done. Scored a ton of the best holiday beauty gifts at Bluemercury and checked a bunch of girls off my list and even scored some goodies for myself! Don’t forget the Holiday Party is only running from 11/29 to 12/8 in store so make sure to stop into you local Bluemercury to take advantage of your holiday savings! And Erik if you are reading this — Skincare Fridge please! I’ve been a good girl this year.
