Dear Santa: Top 10 skin care gifts under $35!

Click on the ten item names below to preview these products and to learn more about them!


1. Cetaphil Facial Cleanser : $6 - $14

This is my favorite skin care product. It is a hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic wash with no frills or chemical irritants that mildly washes the face and can be used to cleanse the body as well. This is perfect for all skin types and helps protect skin being treated with retinoids from unnecessary oil stripping. Give this as a gift to anyone who needs a good, reliable, and very affordable skin cleanser.

2. Dove Men + Care Body & Face Wash: $6 - $20

Skin care for men is as important as it is for women. While most products are marketed to women, Dove Men+Care focuses on men, giving them the power of gentle cleansing with masculine scents. The different scents from Deep Clean to Clean Comfort are bold smelling but offer the trusted cleansing of Dove products.

3. Aquaphor Baby Wash & Shampoo: $8 - $10

This tear-free formula is the perfect cleansing agent for your little one from head to toe, especially in eczema-prone skin. In addition to being a gentle wash, it is also irritant-, fragrance-, dye- and paraben-free.

4. EltaMD Foaming Facial Cleanser : $28

This lush foaming facial cleanser not only gives you superior and gentle cleansing, but it also feels great on the skin and moisturizes as well. It is a oil-free cleanser with protease enzymes that can help minimize skin inflammation and irritation. Visit the EltaMD link below to find an authorized seller near you.


5. Aquaphor Healing Ointment: $5 - $12

With non-irritating petroleum jelly and glycerin for extra skin barrier protection, this very soothing ointment with nearly no chemicals serves as a great balm for lip, body, and baby diaper area care. While greasy, this element of Aquaphor Healing Ointment is what gives it lasting efficacy to combat dry skin and avoid chemical irritants.

6. Vanicream Lite Lotion: $7 - $10

A trusted brand created by the Mayo Clinic, this sensitive skin formula is free and clear of numerous skin irritants and allergens. This lotion is light and smooth-feeling, a great compliment to retinoids on the face or for routine daily face moisturization or other body areas prone to oiliness and dampness.

7. Eucerin Advanced Repair Light Feel Lotion: $7 - $15

Ceramides and alpha hydroxy acids ( AHA) are the cornerstone of skin hydration and prevention of superficial skin water loss. This recently improved lotion has a less greasy feel and has some clinical evidence demonstrating its ability to hydrate the skin when used regularly on all skin types.

8. Cerave Moisturizing Cream: $8 - $13

With ceramides and hyaluronic acid for superior hydration for dry and cracked skin, Cerave is a trusted brand and is a great cream for those suffering with hand eczema and body dryness. Go to this link to receive a $2 off coupon!


9. EltaMD UV Clear Broad Spectrum Suncreen SPF 44: $28

This sunscreen can be purchased from authorized sellers, such as physicians, dermatology clinics, and medical spas. It is zinc oxide and titanium dioxide based which gives the immediate efficacy of mineral, physical blocking sunscreens to protect from unnecessary radiation and skin cancer. The lack of chemical sunscreen components makes it ideal for sensitive skin and minimizes skin irritation. See this link below to find an authorized seller near you!

10. EltaMD UV Clear Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 46: $34

This second physician-dispensed sunscreen is made with care for skin that is acne, rosacea, and pigmentation prone. This zinc oxide mineral sunscreen and higher SPF further shield skin from radiation damage that may exacerbate inflammatory skin conditions.
