The 10 Best Beauty Stocking Stuffers Under $10

Walking through Sephora to find the perfect stocking stuffer for a loved one can be a bit overwhelming (and hard on your wallet), but gift-giving doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. We’ve found 10 well-loved products that beauty-lovers swear by, and all for under $10. Trust me, they’ll thank you!

Trader Joe’s Blueberry & Açai Facial Scrub ($5.99)

Trader Joe’s

Fans of this facial scrub swear by it, and for $5.99, there’s really no point in overlooking it. Unlike most exfoliators, it’s not graininess that removes dead  but alpha-hydroxy acids, which leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. Trust me, your loved ones will thank you for this one.

Peach and Lily Acne Spot Dots ($4.49)

Peach and Lily

I gave these patches a try this year and let me tell you, they work like a dream. They can pretty much make your pimples disappear overnight, and they’ll be a godsend for any of your friends or loved ones who complain about their acne.

The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% ($8.90)

The Ordinary

Not only does this serum helps reduce red spots and even your skin tone, but it makes your nightly routine feel that much more luxurious. This is perfect for any skincare-lover on your Christmas list.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray ($7)

Mario Badescu

This facial spray, infused with aloe, herbs and rosewater, keeps your face moisturized and dewy throughout the day. The best part? You can use it with your makeup to give your face that little extra glow and keep your look intact.

Maybelline Makeup Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Face Makeup Primer ($5.24)

Amazon

Many compare this product with the (much more expensive) Tom Ford Illuminating Primer, which is a pretty great compliment, especially considering it costs a little over $5. This gel-based primer blurs your pores and creates a smooth canvas for your makeup. The best part? You can give it to even your most sensitive-skinned friend, as the formula is non-irritating.

Burt’s Bees Essential Kit ($9.99)

Macy’s

This assorted box clocks in a little under $10, but it’s definitely worth it, considering it comes with a deep cleansing cream, hand salve, lotion, foot cream, and the brand’s famous beeswax lip balm. This is perfect for any moisturizing Queen (or King) in your life.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay ($7.99)

Target

Many swear by this deep pore cleansing facial mask, which fans swear can clear up acne breakouts overnight. This well-loved product is perfect for any skincare fiend who loves to end the night with a nice face mask and wine.

Thayer’s Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner ($8.54)

Amazon

This alcohol- and paraben-free witch hazel is diffused with aloe vera, helping to smooth and moisturize your face while cleansing and toning your skin. The best part? It helps remove makeup, making this the one ideal product for any skincare-lover.

Mini MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick ($10)

MAC

MAC’s Ruby Woo lipstick is the epitome of classic red, which is a must-have in any woman’s makeup bag. There’s a reason this stunner is beloved in the beauty community — it looks great on just about everyone and makes the perfect gift for any lippy-loving person in your life.

Lush Goddess Bath Bomb ($8.95)

Lush’s bath bombs are perfect for any loved one who deserves to treat themselves to a spa day. Not only will it make taking a bath that much more enjoyable, but it’ll also leave them feeling — and smelling — great. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
