Looking for a gift for a mascara-minded buddy? Struggling to think of something your pedicure-loving grandma would enjoy? Makeup and skincare gifts can be cost-effective and well-loved gifts, whether you're shopping for your best friend or yourself.
When it comes to beauty gifts, QVC is a great one-stop-shop for both big and small brands, from makeup to masks, foot spas to hair dryers. Here’s our guide to the eight best beauty gifts you can buy from QVC, all hand-picked by Reviewed beauty editor Jessica Kasparian.
1. A set of products to protect and revitalize your hair: Olaplex 3-piece set
Olaplex amassed a following among beauty lovers, with 2.2 million Instagram followers and a legion of devoted fans. We always see Olaplex products sell out during the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but right now, you can get a 4-piece hair kit at QVC.
QVC buyers love Olaplex’s hair products, claiming they have "regenerative and almost magical" qualities. As one buyer wrote in a review on the QVC site, “all I can say is WOW!” Now you can test out Olaplex's bestselling hair products with this 3-piece treat kit, which includes a hair perfector to help improve the overall look and feel of your hair (No. 3), a reparative styling cream (No. 6), and a lightweight styling oil (No. 7).
2. A mascara with a compelling claim: Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara
If you’re looking for a new mascara, consider checking out Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara duo, which is just $25 on QVC right now. When we tested Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara, we found that it lasted all day and made our tester's eyelashes "look full and deeply pigmented with two coats." This beauty bundle includes both full-sized and travel-sized tubes, and the mascara itself has an hourglass-shaped brush to lift and separate all your lashes.
3. Our favorite hair dryer: Bio Ionic GrapheneMX Professional Hair Dryer
A good hair dryer can change your whole day. Will you hop in the car perky, polished, and ready to tackle the day’s challenges, or damp, bedraggled, and grumpy? Reviewed's favorite hair dryer, the Bio Ionic GrapheneMX Professional Dryer, is an investment, but it’s worth it. As our reviewer noted in her write-up: “If you only want to zap excess moisture to avoid sleeping on or leaving the house with wet hair, this dryer can do that in less than five minutes.” It’s lightweight, quiet, and intuitive, too.
4. A quick, easy, and painless way to floss: WaterPik
Teeth hygiene is part of a great beauty routine. And if you ask a dentist how to get good teeth, part of what they’ll advise is to keep up on your flossing, and—let’s be honest—most of us aren’t holding up our end of the bargain on that. WaterPik’s professional flossing system can make the whole process easier, using a high-powered stream of water to blast away plaque, germs, and debris from in between teeth and below the gumline. It can leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean, and may even help make your teeth look a little whiter if you throw some of WaterPik’s whitening tablets into the system’s reservoir. After testing an earlier iteration of the Waterpik, our reviewer reported that it's easy to use, too.
5. A luxurious trio of face masks: Peter Thomas Roth face masks
Looking for spa-quality treatments without the high prices? Check out QVC’s trio of Peter Thomas Roth face masks, which offer luxury for a reasonable price. Included in the set is a 24K gold mask meant to help “impart an opulent glow” while claiming to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as an Irish Moor purifying mud mask and a soothing cucumber gel mask. QVC buyers love the set, too, with one buyer writing in their on-site review that the masks "all perform beyond expectations."
6. One of our favorite face cleansing brushes: PMD Clean Pro cleansing brush
Speaking of spa-like treatments, you can pick up this PMD Clean Pro cleansing brush from QVC, which is very similar to another PMD brush we tapped as our favorite face cleansing brush. The PMD Clean Pro brush claims to break down dirt, oil, and any impurities left on the skin from the day. Its reusable brush head claims to never need replacing, and there are four customizable modes to cater the intensity to your skin. Pick one up for a loved one, and maybe buy one for yourself as well.
7. An ethereal-smelling set of body products: Philosophy
For years now, Philosophy has wowed lotion-lovers with its line of Amazing Grace products. Light enough for everyday use but delicious smelling and perfectly pampering, the lotions, shampoos, and body washes make great gifts for just about anyone. QVC is offering a set containing the beloved lotion, 3-in-1 shampoo, bath, and shower gel, and the eau de toilette fragrance, for when you want to take your scent to the next level. Buyers love the set so much that it’s got a 4.6-star average with over 1,600 ratings, making this set a real crowd-pleaser.
8. A pampering pedicure at home: Homedics Bubble Spa Elite Foot Bath
Looking for a gift for someone who spends a little too much time on their feet? The Homedics Bubble Spa Elite Foot Bath could be the perfect present. It’s one of Reviewed's favorite foot spas because it's easy to clean and has seagrass-like inserts that feel great during a soak. QVC buyers say it’s great with Epsom salts and is “the perfect way to pamper yourself at the end of the day.”
