Our team shares the beauty products they want to give and get this holiday season

 

The best gifts are those that are thoughtfully curated with the recipient in mind—think mini beauty goodies for them to take on vacation, a luxurious candle to light during a me time bath, or a face steamer so they can continue to look like their radiant selves. But, with an endless stream of shopping options to choose from—especially in the world of beauty—finding the right gifts for your loved ones and yourself can feel a bit like trying to solve a riddle from the Sphinx. Here, our thirteen lune staffers help tackle some of the gifting guesswork by sharing the skincare and makeup products they are adding to their carts this season.
