6 Affordable Skin Care Stocking Stuffer Ideas
‘Tis the season for beauty gifts! As we draw closer and closer to the holidays, excitement surely builds but so too does the anxiety of gifting everyone on your list. Enter: Vichy. The brand—one of the top skin care brands in French pharmacies—is available at drugstores across the U.S. (affordable! convenient!) and offers a wide range of goodies that any beauty devotee would love. From mineral-rich face masks to micellar cleansing oils, there’s a stocking stuffer out there to please the masses—whether it’s your bestie, coworker, or even yourself (why not?!). Best of all, everything we share below is less than $30, because you shouldn’t have to break the bank in order to be thoughtful.
Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water 50G
This pint-sized facial mist formula boasts a thermal water that is rich in 15 rare minerals and antioxidants and sourced from the French volcanoes to help protect skin against signs of aging and fortify its barrier so its more resistant to environmental aggressors. Just one spritz is enough to make your skin feel refreshed (midday pick-me-up anyone?), especially on a particularly hot day or inside an office that’s blasting the artificial heat. Tip: Store it in the fridge for an extra burst of cooling comfort!
Vichy Mineral Masks
Give your skin routine a little mineral-rich upgrade with any of the brand’s new masks—featuring none other than the brand’s coveted mineralizing water—formulated to target various skin concerns. The Quenching Mineral Face Mask helps hydrate dry, uncomfortable skin and strengthen its moisture barrier against aggressors. The Double Glow Peel Face mask helps gently remove dead skin cell buildup on the skin’s surface to reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion. And lastly, the Mineral Pore Purifying Clay Mask helps absorb excess oil and impurities for skin that’s clean and soft.
