Good mail day: Three holiday sets from Benefit Cosmetics that bring cheer

When it comes to holiday beauty sets, I’ve always found that Benefit Cosmetics have the best value sets.

The great thing about Benefit is that they have so many amazing products. Not only are they known for their iconic brow products, but their face products are so stellar and their mascaras are top-notch as well.

I always look forward to seeing what Benefit has in store for the holidays every year, and just like year’s past, they have some awesome gifts to pick up at all different price points.

Benefit Cosmetics Totally Glam Telegram

Benefit Cosmetics Totally Glam Telegram 

The Benefit Totally Glam Telegram set (C$54, valued at $140) comes with four products, three of which is full size and one that’s deluxe size.

Open the festive tin to reveal a full sizes of The POREfesional Primer, Hoola bronzer, They’re Real mascara, and a mini of the Gimme+ Brow.  This set is great since it includes a bunch of iconic tried and true Benefit products that are perfect to gift to a Benefit lover or to someone who wants to try out the brand.

I want to note that The POREfessional Primer retails for C$43 alone, so for $11 more you can get two more full-size items, plus a mini of one of their iconic brow products (which is already a pretty generous size that will also last you a while).

Benefit Cosmetics Merry Mini Mail

Benefit Mini Merry Mail Makeup Value Set

If you are looking for a great stocking stuffer or smaller gift, the Mini Merry Mail Makeup Value Set (C$27, valued at $56) has three deluxe sizes of their BADGal Bang! mascara, The POREfessional Primer and the 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel.

This set is great since although these are sample sizes, the amount of product you get in here will last a long time and is also great for travel or a portable makeup bag (great if you have a winter vacay coming up). Also, the price point is great since it retails for under $30 and comes housed in the cutest little tin.

Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Bundle

If you want to gift some of Benefit’s iconic cheek products then take a look at the Blushin’ Benetint Bundle (C$27, valued at $47), which includes a full-size of the Benetint Rosy Lip & Cheek Stain, and a deluxe mini of the Starlaa rosy bronze blush.

Benetint as actually the first product that Benefit released and can be used as a cheek and lip tint.  The Starlaa blush is brand-new from the brand as well, so it allows you to try out things that are old and new from Benefit.

All three sets come in a festive collectible tin that features a postcard motif that is so fun and festive. All holiday sets also include a sheet of stickers as well which are an extra treat.

Get glowing: Two sets to gift from Glow Recipe

When it comes to holiday sets, you really can’t go wrong with a skincare set.

Skincare is always in season and if you have a line you love, then now is the best time to stock up on sets. Same goes for anyone on your wish list.  Glow Recipe is a great brand, one that I have been using for a few years now, and would make the perfect gift for someone in their teens or 20s.

For the holidays, the brand has a few sets available featuring some of their best selling products at fabulous prices.

Glow Recipe Hey You, You're Glowing Watermelon Set

Glow Recipe Hey You, You’re Glowing Watermelon Set

If you love the watermelon line from Glow Recipe, then you’ll love the Hey You, You’re Glowing Watermelon Set (C$64, valued at $90).  This set include two full-size of their bestselling Watermelon products, which are packed full of niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to tighten pores and brighten skin.

This set includes the Watermelon Glow PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner, which smooths and hydrates skin for a visible glow. It also has the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops, which boost hydration and visibly reduce hyperpigmentation for a dewy glow.

These products are great for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin. If you have issues with your pores, dry skin, or dullness then this is a great set to pick up.

Hey You, You're a Bright Light Brightening Set

Hey You, You’re a Bright Light Brightening Set

If dark spots and dullness are more of a concern, then the Hey You, You’re a Bright Light Brightening Set (C$64, valued at $90) would be a great choice.

This set includes a full-size of the Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum, as well as deluxe sizes of the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream and the Guava Vitamin C Bright-Eye Gel Cream.  These products help to visibly brighten and reduce the look of dark spots and dark circles, while hydrating skin for a glowing and more even-toned appearance. This set is ideal for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin.

These products contain five forms of Vitamin C to visibly brighten and even out dull skin, as well as tranexamic acid to reduce the looks of dark spots and redness, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin.

Although there is only one full-size product in here, it give you or your recipient the opportunity to try different products in the brand to see if it works for you and your skin.

Glow Recipe has a few more sets available for the holidays and they all look amazing (plus the fun and colourful packaging it so cute). Next time you’re in Sephora I would recommend checking them out and picking up a few to gift this season.

Tis the season: Top sets to gift from Tula skincare this holiday season

I can’t believe I’m already writing about holiday sets!

This year has seriously flew by and once again it’s time to think about the holidays and everyone on your gift list.  I always say that this time of the year is the best for beauty and skincare, both for yourself and anyone on your list.  When it comes to gifts, you really can’t go wrong with skincare or makeup and if you can get it at an amazing price, then even better!

Tula is one of my favourite skincare brands, and for the most part, the majority of their items have blown me away.  Tula is now available through Sephora Canada, as well as their own dedicated site here in Canada, but of course if you are in the States then you can get it at Ulta, the Tula site, and other places as well.

Now I’m starting off the holiday posts with Tula since they have some incredible sets for an amazing price plus you can get an additional 25% off, with free shipping with code SHAYNA. Usually my code is only 15% off, but it’s valid for 25% off until November 13, 2022.  This code is valid on both the U.S. and Canadian site.  To make this even sweeter, Tula’s site also has a deal where if you spend $75 or more before November 17, you will get a $25 credit to use on their site after December 9, 2022!

So ready to shop? Here are some of my top picks for holiday sets from Tula.

Tula Eye Balm Extravaganza Holiday Eye Balm Kit

Tula Eye Balm Extravaganza Holiday Eye Balm Kit

I have been a huge fan of Tula’s eye balms for years now so this eye balm kit is a great time to stock up!

The Tula Eye Balm Extravaganza Holiday Eye Balm Kit (C$79, valued at $130) has all three of Tula’s famous eye balms, including the Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm, the Rose Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm, and the 24-7 Power Swipe Day & Night Treatment Eye Balm.

All three eye balms are full size and they come individually packed so you can either gift them together or split them up amongst friends and family.

I’ve used all three eye balms and love them.  The original one was the Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm, which instantly hydrates, cools, and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles.  The Rose Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm was released next and also hydrates, cools, and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, plus leaves you with a dewy rose glow. Finally the 24-7 Power Swipe Hydrating Day & Night Treatment Eye Balm firms, hydrates, and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as puffiness.  It also helps to protect the delicate eye area from the damaging effects of blue light.

This set is incredible since you end up saving C$51, so even if you are a fan of their eye balms, I would highly recommend picking this up to stock up your collection.

Celebrate Little Moments 5-Piece Refining Kit

Celebrate Little Moments 5-Piece Refining Kit

The next set would make a great gift for a Tula lover, as well as someone new to the brand.

The Celebrate Little Moments 5-Piece Refining Kit (C$128, valued at $214) is a set that contains four full-size Tula products plus a limited-edition holographic bag.

Included in this set is the Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser, the Claydate Toning Face Mask Stick, the 24-7 Moisture Hydrating Day & Night Cream, and the Glow & Get It Cooling and Brightening Eye Balm.  In total, this set saves you $86 and stocks you up with some of my favourite Tula products.

I always say that if I had to choose my fave Tula products it would be the Cult Classic cleanser, the 24-7 Day & Night Cream, as well the one of the eye balms (I also highly recommend the sunscreens, however, those are not available in Canada yet). This set includes all three products, plus their Claydate mask, which is also amazing since you apply it straight from the stick, making it way cleaner to apply compared to other clay masks.

Again, I think this is an amazing set to pick up and one of my favourite sets that Tula has for this holiday season.

Tula So Sweet Exfoliating Facial Scrub Trio

Tula Holiday Sugar Scrub Kit

Finally, if you are a fan of Tula’s scrubs, then you’ll love the Holiday Sugar Scrub Kit (C$73, valued at C$93).

This set includes three full-size of their iconic exfoliators, all of which come in festive scents. Now I’m not a huge exfoliator fan since I find a lot of them tend to leave behind the exfoliating beads. This isn’t the case with these scrubs from Tula. These are made with sugar, so once you add in water it breaks down the formula and melts away excess sebum, buildup and debris, leaving your skin looking more radiant and feeling more soft.

The formula contains probiotic extracts to improve skin smoothness and calm he look of irritation. It also has papaya and pineapple enzymes to brighten and exfoliate, as well as sugar to sugar to gently exfoliate without stripping skin.

I have both the original one, which is a pineapple scent, as well as the pumpkin one they released last year and I love the fun scents they come out with these (they are very fragrant FYI).  The three scents included in this set are Gingerbread, Sugar Plum, and Chocolate Peppermint.  This does come in a festive box, but you can always split them up and gift them individually as well.

Tula also has a few other sets to gift for the holiday season as well, but I really love these three since they are great to gift to one person or multiple people if you split them up. If you love Tula, or have someone on your list who adores Tula, then I would recommend picking up a set or two this holiday season.  Just don’t forget to use code SHAYNA for some extra money off!
