Looking for a Grad Gift for a Beauty-Lover?
As a recent graduate myself and a beauty-obsessed gal, I thought it would be nice to share my top beauty gift picks for the grad or student in your life! Our busy, on-the-go lifestyles can pose a world of challenges for even the most experienced of gift-givers. Fortunately, The Beauty Closet has you covered ;) Check out my fav's below:
1. TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL:
Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Paper [50 ct.]
This is a great product for any student on-the-go and works well for during the summer months especially! It's easy to get a bit of shine and oil throughout the day and these blotting papers from Too Cool for School are not only affordable, but super adorable too :) These papers are also curated from natural Korean Hanji, which is handcrafted from Mulberry trees. There are NO parabens, Phthalates, or Sulfates either and at this price, you can snag one for yourself as well.
2. Sephora Favorites
The Ultimate Travel Bag
This is the perfect graduate gift for the graduate that has everything. With a little bit of something for your hair, body, & face- this is bound to be a definite hit ;) I love the wide variety of high-quality & Korean beauty products that makes this set packed full of items that any beauty-lover would appreciate. One of the best all-around beauty gifts that costs under $50 and includes 14 products from top-notch brands like: LAVANILA, L'Occitane, Jurlique, Tarte, Murad, & more!
3. Tangle Teezer
The super cute print "Lulu Guinness Lip Paint" can be found at sephora.com and this fantastic hair tool comes in 9 other fun prints & solid colors as well. What I really love about this tool is that it's small enough to fit in your bag or purse without taking tons of room, but it still does the job of brushing your hair- sans the pain that sometimes similar products can cause. This well-designed brush doesn't do this and won't get stuck in your hair- it can also be utilized to tease the hair. It comes with a click-on/off cover that will keep it from getting dirty or damaged- making it a great choice to any grad or student who's on-the-go :)
Mini Nail Rescue Kit
This super cute and versatile kit comes with all the essentials any student, on-the-go gal, or beauty-lover would want.... in a mini-version of Tweezerman's best manicure tools. Each miniaturized tool is created from stainless steel and comes in a storage case that makes travel a cinch :) You can only find this at Sephora, but it can be snagged online!
5. Formula X
Nail Polish Remove Pads
An affordable and easy on-the-fly option to the annoying & often traditional messy method of removing nail polish! Formula X not only makes quality nail polishes and unique textures & shades, but they know how to make a great nail polish remover too :) There are NO Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates- which is one of the reasons why I'm a big fan of these myself! Also perfect for any recent grad or on-the-go girl, as an inexpensive gift that any beauty-lover would appreciate!
6. Flirt Hot
Ceramic Tourmaline 1"
This ultra-cute mini flat-iron is great for on-the-go students, grads, and beauty-lovers...plus it's just fun ;) You can snag this at a decent price at Overstock.com and there's a 2-year warranty that can be purchased for under an additional $7. With tourmaline 1" plates and a max. temperature of up to 410 degrees F, this is a hair tool that any beauty-obsessed chica would love and at this pricing, you can afford to grab one for yourself too.
