Diwali is right around the corner and so is our chance to shower the ones we love with gifts and surprises. Celebrate the ones who have stood by you during these trying times with some thoughtful and indulgent beauty and wellness gifts. Our experts pick some of the most ideal and thoughtful gifts for all the beauty junkies out there.
For the glow effect - Facial Kits!
This Diwali, gift your loved ones a complete salon-like experience at home with a Facial Kit. Curated by experts, these Facial Kits make the perfect beauty Diwali gift that will leave your loved ones feeling pampered and radiant. We recommend the Lakme Salon Professional - Guided Service Kit - Youth Infinity Sculpting Facial to improve the elasticity of the skin and help unveil a sculpted, youthful feel. Gift this to all the important women in your life, to help them look and feel their best.
You can also gift the Lakme Salon Professional - Guided Service Kit - Fruit Facial, which helps you get fresh, nourished, supple, healthy skin. It consists of a cleanser, scrub, niacinamide massage cream, masque and sunscreen, leaving the skin with a festive glow. Just what your loved ones need!
For the obsession of eyes - Eye shadow Palette
For the self-proclaimed makeup aficionado in your family, eye shadow palettes make for apt gifts. The Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette, Stilettos has the perfect combination of 48 striking shimmers and intense mattes. This eye shadow palette comes in versatile versions: Stilettos, Sundowner and many others. Still confused? Opt for the Infinity Eye Shadow Palette range from Lakmé, which features four vibrant and versatile eye shadow palettes - Soft Nudes, Pink Paradise , Coral Sunset and Midnight Magic. Each 12-piece set has six gorgeous mattes and six shimmery shades designed to create a mélange of looks.
For the hair manic
Winter and the festive season go hand in hand and dry, dehydrated and undernourished hair is a by-product of it. We hate it too! Gift your friends and family hair care products that nourish and protect the hair. We recommend the Argan Everyday Duo by Moroccanoil that comes with a hydrating leave-in conditioner and treatment oil. The leave-in conditioner provides up to 72 hours of softness and prevents thermal damage and breakage. The treatment oil, which is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids, leaves the hair soft and smooth, with improved manageability. It controls frizz and flyaways, while imparting shine to the hair.
Another recommendation that makes the cut is the Moroccan Oil Restorative Hair Mask. This hair mask is the best solution for the post-festive hair damage, instantly repairing it. It reconstructs and infuses protein back into strands that are damaged by chemical treatments or heat styling. Its high-performance restorative formula is rich in argan oil, shea butter and reparative proteins that restore and rebuild strength from the inside out.
For skin care junkies in the family!
As mentioned previously, winters can be harsh on the skin and hair, and the heavy festive/wedding makeup compounds this problem. Gift your near and dear ones skin care products that are gentle and moisturising for the skin. We recommend the high-performance Dermalogica Biolumin-C Vitamin C Serum that works with the skin’s own defences to brighten and firm. Made with advanced bio-technology and ultra-stable vitamin C & palmitoyl tripeptide-5, this serum helps to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This superior serum is the best skin care gift you can gift your loved ones and it outperforms other vitamin C products by a long margin.
The Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster Serum is an antidote to the dryness and dehydration that winter brings. This hydrating fluid concentrate relieves dryness, restores the moisture balance and minimises the appearance of fine dehydration lines.
The Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift Masque also makes for a great festive gift as it minimises the appearance of dark circles, increases skin luminosity, lifts the eye area and restores the skin barrier integrity.
For the choosy one, gift the Lakmé Salon E-Gift Cards
