New Summer Skincare That Make Great Gifts

If you are searching for gifts for the new grad or new mom, a summer bride or birthday girl, there’s a plethora of summer skin care sets available for every occasion. Not only will the woman-of-the-hour be able to sample a variety of skin care products that are designed to help her look and feel her best, but these skin care kits also come with bonus packaging that will last well beyond the sample sized products. Whether it be a cosmetic case or a travel bag, these gifts with purchase packed with samples make an amazing gift for summer celebrations.

For the Summer Bride
Philosophy produces amazing skin care products and often packages them together in convenient gift giving sets. This summer, if you purchase Philosophy’s “Here Comes the Bride” set from Nordstrom, you will also get a limited edition cosmetic bag along with a variety of samples of their bestsellers, including the Living Grace firming body emulsion, Purity Made Simple facial cleanser, Living Grace shampoo and shower gel and The Microdelivery triple-acid brightening peel. The summer limited edition bag also comes with additional samples of the Purity Made Simple facial cleanser, Hope in a Jar moisturizer, Amazing Grace shampoo and shower gel, Amazing Grace firming body emulsion and another sample of The Microdelivery peel.

For the New Mother
An entry from Neiman Marcus, this beauty kit is ideal for the new mother. The Noodle &Boo Pregnancy and Newborn gift set is ideal for new mothers because it includes a spectrum of products that address a number of skin care issues that usually arise during pregnancy. The Pregnancy and Newborn gift set from Noodle & Boo features products ranging from a soy candle to crèmes that help reduce stretch marks. Hypoallergenic, dermatologist and pediatrician tested, the lotion, shampoo and body wash samples are perfect for sensitive skin.

For New College Grad
The Radiance Revival Clarisonic® Plus With Lancôme Set is perfect for the new college grad who is out looking for jobs. Needing to put their best face forward, help new college grads keep their skin flawless with the oscillating power of Clarisonic. Combined with the collection of Lancôme products, college graduates can get the ultimate summer glow.

Exciting new adventures lie ahead for the new college student. Help enjoy her summer before college with the playful and summery Juicy Couture Viva La Fleur Deluxe Gift Set. This youthful and light fragrance is perfect for the summer weather. The gift set comes with a sample-sized Eau de Toilette spray, a dual rollerball of Viva La Fleur and Viva La Juicy in an exclusive cosmetics bag.

For the Summer Traveler
This gift set is perfect for the jet-setting friend. Ahava Travel Must-Haves Face and Body Value Set features skin-rejuvenating properties of the Dead Sea to nourish and protect the skin even while traveling. This travel kit includes skin care for both body and face, with body cream and hand cream, cream wash, toner and moisturizer samples tucked into a travel bag.

For the Beach Babe
Long days in the sun and salt water can do some serious damage to hair. Help your beach-loving friend with the Moroccanoil Styling Essentials Set. Samples of Moroccanoil Treatment reconditions and protects hair. The Hydrating Styling Cream creates a soft hold while smoothing flyaways and the Luminous Hairspray holds hairstyles in place, even against the ocean breeze, while adding shine. All these hair-saving samples come in a small white water-resistant travel bag.

Skin care sets are the perfect gift for the women in your life, regardless of the occasion. Sample sized products are a great way to try skin and hair care solutions, and the adorable bags the gifts come in are a gift she can keep on using, well after the samples are gone. If none of the above-mentioned ideas seem suitable, make your own gift basket with skin and hair care items of your choice.
