This would make a perfect stocking stuffer for any beauty lover!

Give the beauty gift that will save time and improve everyday beauty routines. Epilation is an up-and-coming at-home hair removal method that is popular in other parts of the world and gives you smooth skin up to 4x weeks—meaning no more having to shell out money on waxing appointments. Plus say goodbye to stubble that’s rough….studies have shown that with continued use, epilation can reduce the amount of hair re-growth, making hairs lighter, softer and finer than before. The Braun Silk-épil 9 SensoSmart is the world’s first smart epilator featuring NEW SensoSmart™ technology. Ideal for new users, the innovative SensoSmart™ technology guides your epilation so you use the right pressure, removing even more hairs in one stroke for up to 4 weeks of smooth skin. Here are some features:
Grabs hair as small as a grain of sand (4x shorter than wax can catch) so there’s less grow out time / in between days
The device is 100% waterproof which allows you to epilate in warm water for a virtually painless experience with regular use
Pivoting head provides personalized performance by adapting to the contours of your skin while the wider head removes more hair per stroke
High Frequency Massage system with pulsating active vibrations - for an extra gentle epilation.
Comes with 7 extras, including a Facial Cap attachment and additional Bikini Trimmer device for easy maintenance of sensitive areas.

Luin Living Hair Towel
Luin Living, a brand new line of luxury lifestyle home, bath and body products, made its U.S. debut this November with pop-up shops at several Saks Fifth Avenues. Luin Living bath fashions are made in Turkey, long known for their exquisite, high-quality, super-soft luxury home textiles. A great gift idea is their hair towel.

MakeupDrop's newest launch - MakeupDrop Hybrid is another great stocking stuffer! From the creators of the original silicone makeup applicator comes the next generation of flawless application for skincare, foundation, blush, highlighter and concealer. The MakeupDrop™ Hybrid is the newest innovation to revamp any makeup bag. The super soft, serenity colored applicator features two uniquely distinct parts: the Silicone Drop, which acts as a clean and waste-free surface for initial makeup application, and the Super Soft Sponge which helps blend and achieve an airbrushed glow. While traditional beauty sponges soak up tons of extra product, the Hybrid—like all MakeupDrop™ products—minimizes product wasted by using the least amount of makeup possible. The silicone pad is naturally anti-bacterial and can stop the transfer of germs that can cause breakouts and irritation.
