5 Thoughtful Skincare And Makeup Gift Sets For Your Friend With Sensitive Skin
It’s always so nice to receive beauty products as Christmas gifts. However, it can be a bit tricky when you’re buying makeup or skincare products - you need to know the recipient’s skin type, skin concerns, skin sensitivities, etc.
It gets even trickier if your giftee has sensitive or reactive skin. You have to make sure that the products are made with ingredients suitable for their skin type and are dermatologically tested and approved.
Need a little help? Let us point you to Allura Asia, a beauty e-retailer that carries clean K-beauty skincare and makeup products that are formulated for those with sensitive or problem skin. If you need any assurance, just know that its brands and products are also sold at National Skin Centre and on Doctor Anywhere’s online store.
Allura is also the exclusive distributor of cult K-beauty brands such as ASIS-TOBE, 57N and PRIVIA in Asia, and for this festive season, there are specially curated gift sets that would make great Christmas presents for your friends and family.
Read on for 5 skincare and makeup gift sets that would make a thoughtful Christmas gift for someone with sensitive skin!
#1 Privia Makeup Set, $116.80 (U.P. $146)
This makeup set from Privia has everything you need for a no-makeup look. First, pat on a light layer of foundation using the Strawberry Crush Pop Cushion, then fill in your brows using the Magic Auto Eyebrow in dark brown. Then, slightly define your eyes with a light flick of the Double Kill Long-wear Eyeliner, then add some subtle colour to your cheeks with the Illusion Glittering Blusher.
“The blusher contains fine pearls that give my skin a natural radiance and gives a warm highlight that compliments my features,” says a user who goes by @mrsyuen123.
#2 Privia Miracle Whitening Set, $86.90 (U.P. $114.20)
You don’t necessarily have to steer clear of brightening products if you have sensitive skin - you just have to find a formula that is gentle yet efficient. This skin brightening set from Privia consists of a Yeast Cleansing Foam, Whitening Aqua Cream and 3 Steps Whitening Bird Nest Mask to help fight discolouration and pigmentation without being too harsh on sensitive skin.
#3 ASIS-TOBE Hydration Set, $132 (U.P. $167.20)
Hydration is key when it comes to soothing skin that is inflamed or irritated. Go back to basics with this simple hydration routine from ASIS-TOBE, which has a gentle pH Balancing Gel Cleanser, a Hyaluronic Essential Toner that is super hydrating and an Oat-Bean Nourishing Cream to help with strengthening the moisture barrier and skin regeneration. Oh, this set also comes with a free box of Daily Derma Solution mask, worth $40.10.
Makeup artist @shirlenetanhmua says, “I simply adore the ASIS-TOBE range for sensitive skin! It saved my troubled skin in just two days - it works like magic!”
#4 AboutU Age Cover Set, $104 (U.P. $130)
The best time to start on an anti-ageing skincare regimen is before you notice the signs of skin ageing. This AboutU Age Cover Set has got you covered with a Moisture Rice Skin and Lotion combo, both infused with ceramides to strengthen your skin’s natural barrier. To prevent moisture loss during the day, use the fast-absorbing Moisture Rice Cream - it sits well under makeup and keeps your skin feeling refreshed and supple all day long.
#5 57N Set, $65.90 (U.P. $131.80)
Harnessing the power of natural ingredients, 57N aims to keep sensitive skin happy and healthy with a minimalist approach. After cleansing, apply the Iceland Glacier & PHA Clean Toner to balance your skin. Then, use the Willow & B5 Calming Serum, which contains English willow bark extract to soothe any irritation. For the final step, apply the Birch Water & Beta Glucan Barrier Cream, which features birch tree as a key ingredient to restore the skin’s natural barrier.
“I use the cream to prep my skin before makeup and it’s the best! My foundation and concealer applies smoothly afterwards and my skin felt hydrated for 24 hours,” says user @anakhamdan.
Another fan of 57N, @princessjanediary, has this to say about the Willow & B5 Calming Serum: “This ultra-soothing serum helps to soothe irritated skin and visibly reduce redness too.”
