2023 Skincare Gift Guide

It’s that time of the year again! From the person who has everything, to the pickiest person on your list, we know how stressful gift-giving can be. While we may be a little biased, we can’t help but feel that skincare is one of the best gifts to give this time of year. So many people, both male and female, love the idea of flawless skin but don’t know where to start. Jumpstarting this person on your list with some high-quality products is the perfect way to give them the gift of bright, youthful, radiant skin long past the end of the holiday season. We also find that the most challenging people to buy for are often still in need of self-care, and what better way to provide that to them than by a skincare product regimen personalized specifically for them? To help you get started on your holiday shopping, we’re sharing a skincare gift guide filled with some of our favorite products for everyone on your list. 

2023 Skincare Gift Guide: Products for Everyone on Your List 

ZO Skin Health Growth Factor Serum:

Named one of Cosmopolitan’s 13 Best Anti-Aging Serums with Growth Factors, we’re kicking off our skincare gift guide with the ZO Skin Health Growth Factor Serum. This lightweight gel is a great gift because it is suitable for all skin types and minimizes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. Serums are a great gift because, out of all the skincare products, they tend to pack the most punch ingredient-wise, leading to a more effective outcome.

Neocutis Lumiere Firm

This illuminating and tightening eye cream targets the delicate eye area with an advanced anti-aging formulation. Human Growth Factors and Proprietary Peptides work together to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, and under-eye darkness in as little as two weeks.

This product is perfect for the person in your life who may already have a set “cleanse tone moisturize” skincare routine but may not have a specialty product like an eye cream. Help your loved one level up their daily skincare practice by gifting a product that delivers.

ZO Skin Health Daily Power Defense: 

This advanced serum has recently undergone a formulation upgrade to include a new ZPOLY™ complex. This complex helps enable a long-lasting, youthful, and healthy skin complexion and has been clinically proven to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier while defending against environmental stressors and premature signs of aging. 

Skinbetter AlphaRet: 

For those who are in need of an upgraded skincare cream, this product features a unique ingredient that is made up of a retinoid combined with an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that provides visible skin rejuvenation with little-to-no irritation. This is the perfect moisturizer for those interested in Improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles, uneven tone, and texture.

More about AlphaRet:

AlphaRet is the latest innovation in retinoid renewal, delivering remarkable results. In the past, retinols have been approached with caution, because of the irritation and dryness that has been associated with its active ingredient. AlphaRet, on the other hand, causes little-to-no irritation without compromising its effectiveness. While this innovation helps to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it also provides moisture to help counteract any dryness that one might see with a traditional retinol product. 

Skinbetter Alpharet Peel Pads

Exfoliation has often been a misunderstood part of the skincare industry because it is hard to determine which method should be used to exfoliate, and how often you should be exfoliating. The fact of the matter is that exfoliating is an essential part of our routine. It helps boost the effectiveness of our products and helps with skin cell turnover. 

An exfoliating pad is the part supplement to a skincare routine because it’s less harsh than many of the scrubs available on the market, and can easily be added to a post-cleanse, pre-serum, and moisturize skincare regimen. These exfoliating pads feature AlphaRet, as well as a triple-acid blend of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid, in individually packaged pads. This added step works to elevate a skincare routine by improving smoothness and clarity. 

Skinceuticals Triple Lipid: 

For anyone in your life suffering from dry, winter skin, this triple lipid anti-aging cream is the perfect gift. This cream is perfect for all skin types, even those with oily skin. It’s important for those with oily or acne-prone skin to always moisturize, because without added moisture, the skin over-produces oil, leading to more breakouts.  The Triple Lipid by Skinceuticals works to help restore the skin’s external barrier and support natural self-repair, while potently nourishing aging skin for improvement in the visible appearance of skin smoothness, laxity, pores, and overall radiance. 

Whether you’re in need of a gift for friends and family this year, or are looking for a bit of inspiration for your own wishlist, O’Neill Plastic Surgery is here for you. From skin treatments to a full range of the highest quality skin care, we are a one-stop destination for all of your skincare needs.
