Dolls for boys and trucks for girls – no problem. When it comes to our kids, give us pink shirts and dinosaur dresses and everything in between. But oddly enough, the gender binary in adult marketing is alive and well – especially when it comes to gifts. There are so many amazing, life-changing, how-did-I-work-without-these-products that men and women are missing out just because they aren’t marketed to all of us.
Guess what? We’re done with that. Because delicious, healthy and progressive living is not binary. Ladies? Hit the slam ball. Gentlemen? Peeling is your friend. This gift guide is full of items to help you look and feel good, from skin care products to soothing candles to beauty teas and the getaway you sorely miss.
1. Ziip Beauty Nano power device (Via Violet Gray)
The Zip Beauty Nano Current Device increases the radiance of your skin, improves lymphatic drainage, kills acne bacteria and accelerates cell repair. It keeps your skin in top condition down to the cellular level. Plus, it’s wireless, easy to use, and offers instant skin enhancement. It’s the perfect gift for those who want to look their best every day but don’t have the time or money for a weekly spa facial.

About stacked skin care

It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. 86 percent of those who have used the micro-roller say it promotes younger looking skin, and 82 percent said their skin looks plumper in just 12 weeks (this tool is a favorite of our own co-founder Laura Klein). Cruelty free, sustainable, and designed by Kerry Benjamin, Proesthetist, it’s an equally fabulous tool for men and women (though not a great choice if you have active acne).

TCA Lactic & Glycolic face, body + lip peeling
About stacked skin care
Winter skin is gone … your fifteen will be siked when they unwrap this super thoughtful gift. The TCA Lactic and Glycolic Face Peel offers an overnight skin break. The peeling contains five “high-performance acids” that reappear, smooth uneven surfaces, work on dark spots and soften fine lines. Prevents breakouts and clears pore blockages without drying out the skin too much. Use 3-5 times a week. The TCA Multi-Acid Body Peel is perfect for those who want to get rid of acne on the back. Oh, and while you’re at it, slide it down the back of your hands, knees, and arms where the skin looks a little creepy and shows dark spots. And the moisturizing lip scrub is the secret to smoothing out soft, kissable lips. All of the stacked skin care products are vegan and cruelty free.
