My Holiday Shopping Is Basically Done, Thanks to Instagram

best holiday beauty gifts on Instagram



I've spent hours of my time scrolling through social media, so I expect a lot in return. Stylish outfits? Yes. Memes? Absolutely. New fashion and beauty trends? Yes and yes. What I didn't expect? To find all the gift inspiration I need for the holiday season, but I'll take it. This year has been stressful enough, so if Instagram It girls (and extremely stylish skincare-lovers) Vic Styles and Denisse Myrick tell me that The Body Shop is the place to stock up on the best beauty gifts, well, I'm going to listen. 

From can't-live-without body butters and hand creams to shampoos and conditioners, everything is made with naturally-based ingredients from around the world and produced ethically and sustainably, so you can really feel good about what you're gifting. Keep scrolling to see the Instagram Reels that got my attention and for the standout beauty products to give this year.

Vic Styles's holiday beauty gifts



"There’s something for the clean beauty girl, something for the men in your life, and something for your cousin who loves fragrant bodycare. The Body Shop is truly a one-stop shop for everyone on your list."

"I’ve been using this exact brand for almost 10 years now. I keep it in my beauty cabinet, carry it in my purse, and always have it when I travel. It’s great for breakouts, clarifying my scalp, bug bites… It’s basically magic and all natural. It's always at the top of my list."

"I love this cream because it's clean and actually really moisturizes your skin." Pro tip: Massage some into your skin every morning for the pick-me-up you didn't know you needed.

The night cream to end all night creams. Not only does this stuff actually soothe and hydrate skin overnight, but Styles says she loves that it isn't made with any harmful ingredients.

Denisse Myrick's Gifting Picks

"I’ve been shopping at The Body Shop for years. There literally is something for everyone. All skin types, hair needs, scent preferences—they have it all. It’s the perfect place to grab stocking stuffers, full-size sets, known favorites, and everything in between. Plus, you can stock up on your personal favorites, too."

"I love getting these kinds of sets during the holidays because choosing one scent or kind of product for someone can be hard. This has an array of scents and serves different skin types, so the recipient is surely going to find something that works for them."

"This is such a perfect gift, especially during the winter season. My hands get really dry and with the increase in handwashing and the decrease in temps, I know this is a gift that I can enjoy, as will everyone else. It also comes with six stocking-stuffer-sized tubes—one for every bag!"

"If chunky beige sweaters and the perfect cup of tea had a scent, it'd be this. It's a personal favorite of mine: I love the calm, light, and airy smell. And it goes without saying, no one makes body butter like The Body Shop."

"This shampoo is a staple. I have a dry scalp and know it's an issue for many people, especially during the colder months. Who doesn’t want the gift of a fresh and clean scalp?"
