We are just four days away from Christmas and if you are not done with your Christmas shopping yet, fret not.

Beauty products are probably the easiest to shop for and gift to someone because everybody uses at least one beauty product and they are readily available everywhere. But, the difficult part is finding good beauty products that your friend or loved one would actually use.

So, we have compiled a list of products the K-beauty fans in your life will definitely love and use. The best part is that these products are all under $40 too!

Check them out below!

For the globetrotter

If your friend or loved one travels frequently either for work or leisure, these are the products you need to gift her:

Travelling is always a great idea but the dreaded stuffy airplane ride is not. Plus, the dry air in airplanes sucks all the moisture out from our skin.

For every K-beauty junkie, sheet masks are a must-have and a gift that keeps giving! Soaked in concentrated serums, these sheet masks will give the skin a much-needed soothing and hydrating effect.

Your friend who travels often will thank you for this gift (available in Aloe, Avocado, Lemon and Artemisia) as it's easy to put on even in a cramped airplane seat.

Reminding someone to wear SPF is just another way to say "I care for you".

This compact roll-on stick with SPF50+ protection makes it great for travelling. The green tea and water mint extract are perfect to cool the skin too.

Bring Green Carrot Vita Toner Pad, $25.90
