Holiday Gift Guide

Hey guys! So I have been wanting to do a favourites post for a while now and I thought since the holidays are coming up it would be the perfect time! These are some of my favourite hair and beauty products that I use almost everyday. If you’re looking for a gift for anyone who loves hair, I would highly recommend any of these products!

Redken is one of my favourite hair care brands! I use both of these products as leave-in treatments every time I wash my hair. I like to spray the One United through all of my hair, but I only use the Extreme Anti-Snap where my hair is feeling dry. I live in a really dry city, so in the winter, the Anti-Snap is so nice to have! It works really well for my hair, and my mom steals it from me all the time haha!

I feel like anyone who knows me has heard me talk about my Fekkai Styling Creme. I think it’s my favourite product ever. I use it pretty much everyday to redefine my curls and get rid of frizz. And as a bonus, it lasts sooo long! I think I got mine two Christmases ago and I’m still on the same bottle. I got a replacement (the one in the picture) a few months because I thought I was going to run out, but I still haven’t had to use it haha.

After my experience with the styling creme, I was really excited to try Fekkai’s Intense Fortifying Hair Mask! And guys. It smells sooooo good 😍. To me, it smells like sweet tarts but on the container, it says vanilla. So I don’t know where I got that from but either way, it smells really good haha. I use this every few weeks to help make my hair softer and stronger!

Okay, I lied. I haven’t actually tried the L’Oreal Colorista 1-Day Colour yet but it just seems so fun, so I had to include it. I had the intentions to try it out before this post, but #examlife 🤷🏼‍♀️. I’ll keep you guys updated when I do haha! But, I DO use my Batiste Dry Shampoo almost everyday! I’ve tried a bunch of different kinds, but the XXL Volume one is by far my favourite! I’ll also sometimes use it as a texture spray when I’m doing braids to give my hair extra grip.

I was originally only going to have hair products in this post, but I love these products so much that I had to include them anyways. I’ve been using Pierre’S Apothecary Grapefruit Face Scrub for the past few months and it’s so nice – plus it smells amazing haha! It says on the bottle to only use it every few days, so I keep mine in the shower and only use it when I wash my hair.

I have been on the hunt for a good mascara for so many years! I finally found one that I love and it’s the best 🙌🏻. I use L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise – the waterproof kind! I’ve also tried the non-waterproof kind, but for some reason the waterproof version works soooooo much better on my eyelashes and they don’t droop throughout the day. I have to buy this in bulk every few months because it sells out so fast here haha! And a tip for using waterproof mascara: use coconut oil to remove it! It works so much better than makeup remover plus it promotes eyelash growth! 🎉


My last gift idea is Luxy Hair extensions! This is obviously a bigger gift, but Luxy is my favourite extension brand. I’ve been using my Luxies for almost 3 years now and I love them! The colour I use is Dirty Blonde and I like to use them to add lots of extra volume in my braids. There might even be a Luxy giveaway coming to my Instagram 😏. It will be posted later today, so make sure to keep an eye out if you want a chance to win your own Luxies! (the giveaway will end on Monday, December 18th!)


And that’s all the gift ideas I have for you guys today! I hope you found something useful and have an amazing start to the holiday season!
