The 9 Beauty Buys You Won't Want To Give Away This Holiday

The holidays call to mind cheerful sounds and nostalgic sensations that just don’t resonate any other time of year: car karaoke with your fave seasonal album, breaking out your epic faux-fur coat, and, of course, battling the crowds at outdoor markets with gifts galore. Sure, working your way down a seemingly never-ending wish list and attempting to find the perfect buy for each BFF, fam member, and work spouse is tough (we get it), but you know what's even harder? Inevitably parting with your newly acquired haul.
That said, just because we're feeling generous this year, doesn't mean we haven't fully realized the importance of pampering ourselves like the queens that we are. So in that spirit: Take an extra-long nap, whip up your favourite meal for one (and eat it in your pajamas, duh), and get that spa pedicure with all the extra accouterments. And maybe even keep a couple of this season's hottest gifts, like Clinique’s game-changing Pop Party Gift Set, for yourself. After all, 'tis the time to treat yourself.
