10 Women Over 40 Told Us What Beauty Gifts They Want This Year

As a 20-something woman, I could attempt to thoughtfully curate a list of beauty and wellness products that women over 40 might want for the holidays based off of the current market and past chats I've had with the women in my family, but there's no better way to glean this information than by casting a wider net and going straight to the sources.
