’Tis the season for self-care—and OVME has the perfect products for holiday gifting. Here, we break down which is best for every lady in your life; pair any with an OVME gift card and be the guaranteed winner of the gift exchange (not that it’s a competition, right?)
FOR YOUR BESTIE: GLOW Multi-Acid Exfoliating Pads, $120
The crème de la crème of our product line—we’re all about that glow, after all—these exfoliating pads are the closest thing to gifting a spa day. They’re like an at-home version of the powerful peels offered in studio, and perfectly prep skin to best absorb whatever comes next (pro tip: OVME Bright should come next). The daily-use pads contain a trio of exfoliating acids—salicylic, glycolic and lactic, if you want to get technical—that strip away pore congestion and improve skin texture, and built-in aloe vera calms any inflammation caused by excising that nastiness. The result? Reduction in pore size and fine lines; improvement in skin tone and clarity. It’s like taking a spa day with your gal pal and saying, “Let’s anti-age together, shall we?”
FOR YOUR MOM: BRIGHT Brightening Cream, $75
Mom constantly complaining about losing her luster (and maybe even blaming it on you)? Help her bring it back with this special formula cream. It corrects pigmentation and boosts radiance for a brighter, more even-toned look and, when used on the reg, tightens skin and enhances those oh-so-dewy vibes. As for ingredients, the star is tetrahydrocurcumin—a big word for a powerful compound that intensely hydrates, promotes moisture retention and reduces redness. Plus, the all-over face cream formula is ultra luxurious, so package it up with other spa-day items—a robe, eye mask and slippers should do the trick—and take mom to a more zen place.
FOR YOUR SISTER-IN-LAW: PURE Purifying Gel Cleanser, $35
Looking to give the gift of self-care without making any insulting assumptions and ruffling family feathers? OVME’s purifying gel cleanser is great for anyone (and any skin type) to use—no existing under eye bags or acne required. The mighty formula contains vitamin C and salicylic acid that exfoliate and brighten skin, dissolve oil, purify pores and clear blemishes, and a subtle citrus scent—it comes from papaya enzymes that also soften the skin, btw—is an added bonus.
FOR YOUR BOSS: BOOST Antioxidant + Vitamin C Serum, $90
Can we all agree that the stress of work and all that screen staring is draining our glow? Make an effort to shine in solidarity by gifting the #GirlBoss in your life this sweet serum. Made with vitamin C (in the form of L Ascorbic Acid) and something called ferulic acid (a natural sunscreen), it neutralizes free radicals, reduces hyperpigmentation, protects against environmental damage and produces collagen—all resulting in visibly brighter skin. One or two applications on clean skin a day—it’s hydrating enough to replace the usual moisturizer—is all it takes; the formula absorbs quickly and easily into the skin, so both she and it can get right to work.
