Best Skincare Tools and Accessories for Holiday Gifting

With December just around the corner, it can only mean one thing—it’s time to prepare for the upcoming holiday season and find that perfect gift for your friends and family. For your loved ones who already have a rockin’ natural skincare routine, why not complement their routine with an innovative skincare tool, device, or accessory?

Here’s our round-up of our seven favourite skincare tools, accessories, and devices for holiday gifting. 

Jade Roller

Jade rollers are known to have a cooling, soothing effect on the skin to promote drainage from the face and reduce facial tension. What’s it good for? With continued use, facial rollers can help reduce puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles (yes, please!) while restoring firmness and elasticity.  

We recommend this Depuffing Jade Facial Roller from Mount Lai. 

Konjac Sponge 

Originating from Japan, the Konjac is a root-based vegetable that the Japanese have used as part of their skincare routines for 1,500 years. The konjac sponge is soft as a pillow and made with natural, high-quality ingredients that cleanses and exfoliates to deliver smoother, softer, brighter-looking skin.  If you know a friend with sensitive skin, this sponge has a calming effect on the skin. 

We found this Konjac Facial Sponge from BKIND for you.

Muslin Cloth

Using a muslin cloth to exfoliate your skin is a must if you want that holiday glow at your upcoming Christmas party. They work with most face cleansers for a deep clean and gently exfoliate for a refreshed, purified look. Muslin cloths also promote blood circulation and the skin’s natural ability to drain toxins—we’re sold!

Treat yourself to this 3 pack of Muslin Cloths from our friends at Eve Lom.

Gua Sha

This tool is the perfect addition to any skincare-fanatic’s collection. A facial massage tool that enhances beauty rituals by promoting the lifting and smoothing of the skin, leaving the face lifted and radiant after use—making it great for at home facials. What else does it help with? Loss of firmness and elasticity and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. 

We love this Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool from Mount Lai

Silk Pillow

It’s widely known that sleeping on a silk pillowcase is excellent for your skin, not to mention it feels super luxurious. Compared to sleeping on a cotton pillow (which absorbs moisture from your skin), when you sleep on silk, the delicate facial skin is more hydrated in the morning.  Sleeping on a silk pillowcase approach can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin and hair hydration.

Check out this Silk Pillowcase from Slip.

Silk Sleep Mask

So, we just covered the benefits of adding silk into your skincare routine, but why not go the extra mile and treat your loved one to a silk sleep mask? This item is natural, hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, and allows the skin to breathe. 

We think this Silk Sleepmask from Slip is great.

Facial Cleansing Brush

A facial cleansing brush...thats electronic? Yup, you heard right! This gift from the skincare gods is an effective way to enhance your everyday skin care ritual. How does it work? It accelerates your cells’ metabolism to help eliminate accumulated toxins and leave skin enviable clean, clear and luminous. This is great from someone already well-versed in all things skincare.

We found this one from Luna to be highly rated.
