Bare Essentials Gift Guide 2017!

December 7, 2017

Happy Holidays, BE Babes!

It’s our favourite time of year again – Christmas time! The tree is up and the salon is decorated; we’ve got all the Christmas vibes going on! We’ve also brought in a bunch of goodies to help make the season even brighter! Check out some of the fun stocking stuffers and other gifts we have waiting for you…

1. Bare Essentials Own: The Scrub and The Lotion!20171206_103316

Let’s start with the newest addition to our retail line up! If you haven’t been in store lately, you may not know that we created our own line of Scrubs and Lotions that are perfect for post-wax! They are paraben, synthetic dye, sulfate, and phthalate free and they’re vegan too! We’ve only released two scents for the time being but we have more up our sleeve!

The Scrub and The Lotion come in a small and large size. To celebrate the holiday season we’re offering a few different gift pack options! Two small scrubs for $18, 2 small lotions for $22, 1 small scrub and 1 small lotion for $20 and 1 large scrub and 1 large lotion for $50. You can mix and match the scents, too!

2. Invisibobbles20171206_103201

These hair ties have been one of our top selling items since we brought them in, and for good reason! Invisibobbles do not damage, crease or tangle your hair. They have different sizes and colours for all your hair tie needs! They make great stocking stuffers for the long haired ladies in your life.

The original, slim, kid and nano sizes are just $10.50, or grab a power for $12! Or if you’re prone to losing hair ties, the Holiday Cracker includes 9 bobbles in fun holiday colours for $35!

3. MaskerAide Masks20171206_103126

These masks haven’t been around for long, but they have quickly become a favourite of employees and clients at Bare Essentials! These sheet masks are packed with all kinds of goodies for your skin. Sheet masks are always a favourite because they’re easy to use and require no clean up!

MakerAide even released In a Clutch for the holiday season! This cutie includes three masks: Pre Party Prep (Brighten, Prime, Energize), All Eyes on Me (Hydrate, Brighten, Firm, eye sheets), and Tell Me ‘Pout It (Smooth, Plump, lip mask). The Clutch costs $20 and looks great under any Christmas tree!

We also carry the individual Masks – Detox Diva, I Don’t Wanna Grow Up and Weather Warrior – which make the perfect stocking stuffers! Curious about how they work? Check out our review here!

4. Babyfoot20171206_103213

When Winter rolls in, many of us start reminiscing about the summer time. What many of us forget is the wear and tear left behind from sandals and bare feet. Babyfoot is the perfect solution for at-home callous removal! It’s as easy as rinse, dry, wear the boot and rinse again! After you use the foot mask, you will notice the skin starting to flake and peel off 5-7 days later.

When everything is done flaking off, your feet will be left silky smooth and soft like baby’s feet! The results can last months. If you’re someone who finds they still have callouses left after the peeling, wait two weeks and do another mask. This should get rid of that stubborn dry skin! You can grab Babyfoot for $25 in store!

If you’re still a little skeptical, check out our review here!

5. Beauty Blender20171206_103702

We’ve had these little gems around for a while now, and most people are surprised when they see them here! If you have a make up lover in your life, these are great gifts or stocking stuffers!

Never heard of Beauty Blender? These egg-shaped sponges are designed to distribute foundation and other makeup flawlessly over skin, creating an airbrush effect. You simply wet the sponge, squeeze it until mostly dry, put product on the sponge and then ‘bounce’ onto your face! The Beauty Blender comes in different sizes for different things and has been one of the top selling beauty tools since it was first introduced!

We have a few different options. There are two kits: All About Face ($50) and Pro on the Go ($55). Specifically for Christmas is the Midas Touch! This little Christmas ornament includes a mini cleanser and Beauty Blender all ready to be hung on the tree! You can grab one for $34!

6. Makeup Eraser20171206_103224

Another great buy for the make up lover in your life! One of the worst things about wearing make up is having to take it off. There are so many products out there, from special waters and oils to wipes, that claim to take off even the toughest of mascaras. In my experience, most of these products fell short of their claims.

But then I found the Make Up Eraser and everything changed! This reusable cloth only needs water to take off all of your make up, and yes it even works on water proof mascara! There’s no oily residue left over and no waste when you’re done. These cloths last up to 1000 washes in your regular laundry! When it’s time to clean it, just toss it in with any load and it will come out sparkling clean.

There are three great options available in salon: The Mini ($16), The Make Up Eraser ($28) and The Glove ($28).

7. Cluster and Gemstone Soaps20171206_103623

Who can resist soap shaped like a gemstone? Not us! Fancy soap is a classic stocking stuffer for all the ladies in your life! They’re super cute and smell great to boot!

Ranging in a variety of scents like Blue Raspberry, these soaps come in two sizes: Cluster ($8) or Gemstone ($10).

We will only have these guys for a limited time so make sure you grab yours before they’re gone for good!
