Nothing screams “happy holidays” like an over the top gift from Sephora that will make the eyes of every ardent beauty lover glisten with exhilaration. Brands drop dazzling holiday gift kits, limited edition launches and our favourite bestsellers in the chicest packaging at sliced prices, and tbh, they’re quite literally impossible to resist. At the rate they’re flying off the shelves and online, we reckon you should snag them stat!

Thanks to the generous people at Sephora, we had first dibs on some of Sephora’s Holiday 2018 offerings before anyone else got to lay eyes on them, and it came in the form of a rejuvenating getaway to the idyllic Club Med Cherating Beach in Kuantan where we were treated to a slew of festive delights aside from the chance to preview the extensive holiday lineup from Sephora’s in-house brand, Sephora Collection.

The three-day getaway was filled with lots of laughter, camaraderie and endless hours of lazing by the beach, and needless to say, we took full advantage of it to wind down and let loose. Countless memories were of course made, but walking into a luxe hotel room overlooking the scenic horizons decked out in a full bag of Sephora goodies not once but twice during our little vacation will forever be pretty hard to beat.

Here are 10 splurge-worthy gifts from Sephora Collection across varying price points:

Below RM50

1. Bath Salts, RM16

Melt your woes away with these pampering little pearls that dissolve in the bath and smell like clean sheets. You can also personalise the gift by writing a message at the back, then hang it up on a Christmas tree for your receiver to find!

2. The Golden Mask, RM22

Sheet masks are fun and quick to use, but more importantly, they’re always effective. This particular one contains radiant pearl extracts to brighten the complexion and honey to soothe and hydrate the skin.
