Moon Juice Moon Juice Full Moon Mini Dust Collection ($20)
We can't say enough about Moon Juice's beauty dust. It's an elixir of sorts that bumps up your skin's collagen and firmness, restoring youthfulness with just a sip (mixed with your liquid of choice). While a single jar will cost you $65, you can give six different dusts for half the price.
Bar Soap Brooklyn Rosie Dream Set ($16)
Have you ever heard of bath tea? No? Allow us to introduce you. These simple little bags are infused with botanicals, calendula bath tea, and Mediterranean bath salt to transform your tub into a Turkish bathhouse. In this particular set, you'll also get a stylish triangle soap so you can cleanse while you soak.
DermStore Rose Gold Prestige Brush Set ($30)
Any beauty junkie knows that having a good set of brushes is the key to seamless makeup application, but a professional-grade set can really set you back a big chunk of change. This shiny rose-gold set from DermStore has all the essentials: a fluffy powder brush, foundation brush, and three eye shadow brushes for every type of look, from smoky to subtle.
Pro Beauty Tools Professional Iridescent Curling Iron ($28)
With so many high-performing curling irons on the market that aren't so friendly on the wallet, it may seem like you're at a loss. Those "cheap" curling irons aren't always the way to go, as they often get those pesky hot spots that singe hair, rather than distributing the heat evenly for flawless curls. Enter Pro Beauty Tools. The amazing line of irons heat evenly in a snap, and better yet, the temperature can be adjusted based on your hair type. It's a win-win!
HI Wildflower Botanica Herbal Steam ($14)
What could be more luxurious that treating your skin to a botanical steam (or a facial tea, as they're often called), opening your pores and infusing them with moisture and detoxing while you're at it? Even if you're not into the steaming aspect, you can sip it just like a regular tea, perfect for tucking in on a cold evening.
Plantfolk Apothecary X UO Lip Scrub ($16)
Created especially for Urban Outfitters, this sugary-sweet lip scrub yields incredibly soft and kissable lips (perfect for the mistletoe, eh?). It's composed of tantalizing ingredients like organic vanilla bean, raw honey, wild mint, rose hip seed oil, and so many other nourishing goodies.
