The holidays are the perfect excuse to send presents to your close friends and loved ones, and if you’re still clueless about what to give to the beauty enthusiasts in your life, a skincare item or two might just do the trick this season. The local beauty scene has been seeing an influx of impressive homegrown skincare brands, making them an ideal source of nifty presents this Christmas. What could be better than sharing the gift and wonders of skincare while supporting local?

Here, we list down a few gift suggestions from local skincare brands, depending on who’s on your gift list:

For the beauty influencer in your friend group: Sage and Tera

While we are primarily concerned about the skincare benefits we will be reaping from using a certain product, plus points are warranted if it comes in the cutest Instagram-friendly packaging. Sage and Tera not only pride themselves for paraben-free and cruelty-free products, but they also come in the most #aesthetic packaging, making them an ideal choice for a no-fail holiday present. Their water-based serums sold in a bundle of two would make for a cute but thoughtful gift for your skincare-loving friend.

For your mom: Habitude

Habitude is a newly minted local skincare line and so far, they carry three essential products (a sun stick, a miracle water aka toner, and a revitalizing serum) in the prettiest packaging. You can purchase each product separately depending on what you think your giftee will need or appreciate the most, or you can purchase all three products as a set!

For the skincare-loving advocate in your barkada: Apotheke

Cruelty-free, paraben-free, organic, and vegan- and eco-friendly, Apotheke might just be the homegrown brand for a friend who feels strongly about pushing for sustainability. Aside from its advocacies, the brand carries skincare essentials such as niacinamide serums as well as anti-acne solutions. If you can't decide what to get, a tub of their Detoxifying Face Mask might be a safe bet for a gift.

For the skincare newbie in your life: Celeteque

Developed by UL Skin Sciences, Inc., Celeteque has been a trusted skincare brand in the local market and is often the entrypoint of teenagers looking to build their skincare regimen. The brand has products that address the most common skin concerns of Filipinos (such as acne and sun protection). They also sell skincare kits on their official Lazada page, which would be perfect for a skincare newbie hoping to try out their products.
