‘Tis the season to shine! I think it’s safe to say that most beauty lovers look forward to this time of year. The holidays bring us more reasons to put our brightest, boldest glam on display. Whether you like to keep it classic or go all out with glitter and sparkles—December Add-Ons are packed with major gems to have you glowing from head to toe. Keep reading for a sneak peek of what you could boost your bag with to make it truly unforgettable. And don’t forget to circle back next month for an inside scoop into January's assortment.

1. TATCHA The Rice Wash

TATCHA The Rice Wash

Add this creamy cleanser to the top of your list if you’re looking to winter-proof your skincare. It’s infused with rice powder, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid to gently wash away the day (without over-stripping). The result is squeaky-clean skin that feels softer than ever.

2. OUAI Scalp & Body Scrub

OUAI Scalp & Body Scrub

Who doesn’t want a fresh start for the new year? Get ready to scrub the drama out of your life (and scalp) with this natural blend of sugar and coconut oils. Maintaining healthy hair and skin all year long is no easy feat. Luckily, this weekly exfoliator has got your back (and front) to help calm the crazy—leaving you feeling balanced and healthy. Best of all, it can be used from head to toe and even doubles as a shampoo.

3. SERAPHINE BOTANICALS Sugar + Lemon Moisturizing Lip Buffer

SERAPHINE BOTANICALS Sugar + Lemon Moisturizing Lip Buffer

Speaking of scrubs—you’ll love how kissably soft your lips feel after using this buffer. Not only is it packed with soft sugar crystals to gently exfoliate, but you get the nourishing benefits of shea butter and jojoba oil. So your pout stays hydrated, rejuvenated, and mistletoe-ready.

4. TARTE surfer curl™ volumizing mascara

TARTE surfer curl™ volumizing mascara

We’re clearly all about good-for-you formulas this month. TARTE is no stranger to delivering nutrient-rich ingredients—and this mascara gives your lashes an extra dose of love. Marine plants, vitamin E, gardenia flower, and castor oil work to condition with every coat. While the fiber wand builds extreme fullness and length that never smears, runs, or flakes.

5. R+CO Death Valley Dry Shampoo

R+CO Death Valley Dry Shampoo

Party season is here and chances are your schedule is probably packed with holiday plans. This dry shampoo will be your best friend for those in-between-wash-day moments. Just a few spritzes are all you need to instantly absorb the excess oil that could be weighing your hair down. Enjoy an extra boost of body and volume for a freshly tousled look.

6. GLOWIEST ASAP PATCH Active Spot Alleviating Patch

GLOWIEST ASAP PATCH Active Spot Alleviating Patch

All the extra holiday stress, makeup, and food can take a toll on our skin (if we let it). Get ready to kick your breakouts to the curb with this blemish eraser. These tiny stickers are clear, matte, and super easy to use. They work as a spot treatment to extract impurities and brighten dark spots (thanks to niacinamide). Just peel, stick, and watch them do their magic. Not to mention, they're virtually invisible (especially on Zoom calls).

7. 111SKIN Vitamin C Brightening Booster

111SKIN Vitamin C Brightening Booster

The first step to good makeup is good skincare. This serum is an absolute must-have if you struggle with hyperpigmentation, dark spots, or any other discoloration. The potent formula helps perk up your lackluster complexion and banish winter dullness for good. Plus, it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and absorbs lightning fast (no heavy feeling, irritation, or clogged pores here).

8. COMPLEX CULTURE The Smoothing Set


I have to admit that I was a tad skeptical about how the straightening brush would work on curly hair. It did not disappoint—I was pleasantly surprised that it cut my style time in half. This game-changing tool is the star of the set and it does most of the work for you. The paddle brush, clips, and storage sleeve are nice additions to help you achieve glossy, frizz-free strands from home.

9. THRIVE CAUSEMETICS Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ in Brynn (Rich Black)

THRIVE CAUSEMETICS Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ in Brynn (Rich Black)

The urge to go full glam during the holidays is definitely to be expected. Grab this mascara if you want to bring the drama with a faux lash look (without the commitment). The curling and lengthening formula does exactly what it says—a single swipe will make even the skimpiest lashes look like extensions.
