Carmindy’s Beauty Gift Guide

CarmindyBeauty Tips41 Comments

This season give the gift that keeps on giving – BEAUTY! I’ve curated all my favorite beauty stocking stuffers and pretty presents that will make your family and friends look and feel their very best. From yummy beauty treats to men’s skin tools everyone on your list is truly taken care of. Let’s go shopping!

1. Mun Skincare

Created with both you and the planet in mind, this organic skin care product line connect the cycles of beauty, health, and sustainability. Pure, natural, and completely free of synthetic chemicals, Mun’s ingredients are derived from native plants that are carefully selected by women-owned, responsibly managed local co-operatives. I’m totally obsessed with their Travel Set, which includes the No.11 Anarose Rejuvinating Toner, No. 1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum and No.0 Argan Oil. This set keeps your skin hydrated, rejuvenated and glowing and smells like a secret garden.



2. The Sakaralife Empower Bar Collection

The beauties at Sakaralife created this gorgeous collection of 6 bars using the highest quality, most nutrient-dense ingredients they could get their hands on to optimize the nutrients you’re feeding your body. From rejuvenating your skin to helping make your wildest dreams come true (yes, they’re that powerful), there’s a bar in this box for all your needs. Each bar is nutritionally balanced based on our Pillars of Nutrition, powered by some of Sakaralife’s favorite healing whole foods, and made with love.



3. Foreo ISSA Toothbrush Mini in Summer Sky

A fun, gentle silicone toothbrush that features breakthrough, pulsating dental technology. It generates pulsations, which are channeled through soft silicone bristles. These bristles are far gentler than the scratching action that standard bristled toothbrushes use. The silicone bristles generate the ideal amount of friction to effectively remove stains and plaque while remaining gentle on tooth enamel and helping to prevent gum recession. I have dealt with gum recession and had to get a graft so this brush has changed the game for me. I love it!



4. Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey

Illuminate your beauty with golden goodness. This innovative hybrid texture applies like a sheer powder but feels like a cream, creating a translucent wash of luminous color that can be swept all over the face for a lit-from-within glow. I sweep it on eyelids, tops of cheekbones, shoulders, collarbones and legs.



5. Oyster Pearl Powder by Belmacz Beauty

Ancient beauty meets modern innovation. Finely crushed pearls create this luxurious powder that softens the skin and enhances its natural luster. I like to use a big fluffy powder brush and dust it all over my body for a luminous glow for evening.



6. By Terry Tint To Lip Water Color Lipstain 1 in Beach Game

This modern color tint water-based lipstain infuses lips with a kiss-proof sheen and glossy transparency. Its “powder water” biphase formula is packed with antioxidant cherry extract, stimulating acerola extract and correcting prisms, refreshes and invigorates the lips with a sensual wet-look glow. Shake it up to activate weightless prisms, which capture light for a breathtaking smile. So new, so cool and so pretty.



7. Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Coco Rollerball

The master perfumers behind Comptoir Sud Pacifique have captured the feeling of the tropics. Vanille Coco embodies the gentle warmth and relaxation of a South Pacific beach. The scent blends notes of island vanilla, refreshing coconut milk, and intoxicating heliotrope for a blissful escape to a warm and gentle memory of paradise. This is my go-to fragrance and has been for years. I’m so excited they are doing the rollerball now for smelling like the tropics on the go.



8. Bite Mix And Mingle Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo

This lipstick duo collection has six limited-edition holiday pairings of moisture-rich, double-ended lipsticks in complementary shades for the season. Each lip color is infused with super-antioxidant resveratrol to help fight free radicals and support long-term age-repair benefits. These lip duos feature festive holiday packaging and are perfectly giftable. I love the idea of gifting 2 shades in 1 package.


Bite Beauty Mix'N Mingle

9. Phylia de M. Hair Care Combination Set

Nourish, restore and renew your hair’s natural keratin bond from root to tip with this complete hair care system developed with ancient Aztec and Mayan science. The 100-percent organic power trio includes shampoo, conditioner and anytime spritz, which uplifts the hair with Neroli orange blossom that clears damaging toxins and restores follicle health. It leaves you with less shedding and more shine. My hair has been thicker and fuller since I started using it.



10. Clarisonic Alpha Fit Mens Cleansing System

 Men’s skin is different and chances are your guy is just not taking care of it as well as he should. The Alpha Fit by Clarisonic is engineered to get men’s skin cleaner and healthier looking by clearing away dirt, sweat and oil. Alpha Fit cleanses 6 times better than hands alone while prepping face and neck for a closer, smoother shave. I bought one for my super alpha boyfriend who’s skincare routine was non-existent. He is now addicted to this brush and his complexion is the smoothest it’s ever been.

    Carmindy I need a new moisturizer to replace the one you did with Sally Hensen natural beauty luminosity face primer. What should I buy

    1. Carol Ann

      Carmindy: I, too, really loved the luminosity face primer and have bought up a bunch on eBay! Are you bringing it back? I truly hope so as it is wonderful and I will miss it terribly. Many thanks…

  2. Linda

    I’d love to find some of the wonderful eye shadow combinations that were once sold under your name. Are there good, basic (daytime and also nighttime) color combinations you’d recommend from different makeup lines? Or perhaps you’ll be lending your name to some new ones? Those would make lovely gifts from me … to me! 🙂

    1. carmindy

      I will be coming out with an amazing eyeshadow trio is about 5 must-have collections. I will keep you posted.

  3. Jane

    What do u suggest for dark circles and puffy eyes? I remember u used to sell a pink concealer. Please help! I get so confused when I go to a makeup counter.

  4. Shelley

    Hello, I have a similar question to the woman above. I am lost without the lavendar colored all over brightner/concealer that you used to sell under the Sally Hansen brand. My sister and I hoarded every last one we could find when we realized your brand was being discontinued. Is there anything similar or another product you can recommend to replace it? I am seriously lost without it – – it camouflaged my dark circles so well.
    Thanks so much!

  5. Nancy Lowe

    I LOVED your products. I also would like to know your recommendation to replace face primer. I also loved the cream blush in bloom. Any suggestions?

  6. k

    You are appreciated more than you will ever know. Your work continues to change many lives on so many levels; physical and mentally. You are a rare and well loved jewel…
    Thanks again!

  7. Laura

    Thanks for the suggestions!! These look great.
    Those of you looking for a line of hers go to HSN, love her make up

  8. Judy Stokes

    I agree with others. I miss Luminosity face primer! For my “older, mature” skin I felt like it gave my face a lift and made me look younger. I too would like to know if you are bringing it back!!! Please consider!

  9. Lupita

    Merry Christmas to you & yours.
    Helen T.

  11. Barbara Bard

    I noticed the amount of items carried by HSN has shrunk to only those on clearance. Are you leaving them? If so will you be going somewhere else?
    Your makeup line gave me the perfect look & I was so happy to find it after many years of attempting to find that great natural look. (Me only better). Please, I am a professional woman (attorney) in my sunset years – I cannot go through that frustrating search again, not after finding perfection with your products! Please keep bringing us your own line. Barbara B.

    1. carmindy

    Thank you!

  13. Pam

    Hi carmindy, I have very dry and flaky skin. I’ve tried tons of expensive products but nothing works. I’ve been thinking to start the skinceuticals line. Could you please recommend the products that I should be using? I’m in my mid 40’s . Thanks !

  14. Shannon

    Hi Carmindy,
    I have very dark eyebrows with highlighted light brown hair. My eyebrows are harsh on my pale skin. I would like to lighten them slightly. What do you suggest for this?

  15. Marisa

    Hi Carmindy,
    I love everything about your techniques I am in my 40’s and your tips have kept me looking young, radiant and fresh. I feel pretty!
    I live in Toronto, Ontario and would love to know if you have any suppliers here. I am a shopping channel customer but I see that the last 5 minute kit you showcased was sold out and I would love to know if you are coming back to the shopping channel Canada or if there is anywhere else that I can order your products. Signed desperately seeking Carmindy!


  16. Patty

    Hi, Carmindy! I have always loved what you did to help women of all ages. Speaking of age…my son is getting married in March. I will be 56 and am looking for suggestions for make up. I have used Bare Minerals for years, and still love the resul, but I have heard that I might need something different for photos.
    Any suggestions? I wish I lived in NYC…I’d book a consult !
    Thanks for any help!

  17. kate phillips

    where can I purchase your products? I bought some of your lip crayons from hsn but they are no longer available. I loved them and hope you can tell me how to get more. thank you—kate phillips

  18. Laurie

    Carmindy, I’m a new mom and I don’t really have much time in the morning for my old foundation routine. I watched your five minute face and I wanted to get your spray foundation, (I like how light and natural it looked) but I can’t find it. Is there another you can recommend until yours come out again?
    Thank you, Laurie

  19. Susan Farrell

    I hope you bring back the natural beauty foundation and primer. I have to buy it on eBay and it’s pretty much non existent!

  20. Peggy Weigand

    Hi Carmindy,
    I loved loved loved your foundation and just used upthe last bottle. Nothing else compares to it!!!! Please bring it back. I have very dry skin, I have used super expensive brands and none compare to yours!!! I really hope the formula is the same. You are the best!

  21. Cindy

    I bought some of your cosmetics through HSN about a year ago, and wanted
    to replace some of them. But I see you’re no longer on HSN, how do I buy the
    cosmetics you offered?

  22. Bev

    Hi Carmindy, I agree with the others…your foundation was second to none. I have snapped up random bottles here and there on Ebay but would love to know when your new products launches. Will keep checking in! Thank you!!
