Christmas is coming, which means gift shopping, and skincare gifting is a bit of a controversial topic. I made this video to discuss what sorts of skincare gifts are good and bad, which ones are safe and which ones you should stay away from (unless you hate the person you’re gifting it to).

I also included a few suggestions for each type of product – I tried to include a variety and cover a lot of different price points, so hopefully if you’re looking for skincare-related gifts you’ll find some inspiration!

My cat Truffle makes her YouTube debut in this video! She doesn’t seem to like it as much as I anticipated, given how much she whines to be let in to the room where I film, and climbs all over me when I’m blogging and editing videos. Maybe it’s stage fright. (I cut out about two minutes of me telling her she was beautiful and perfect.)
