Help them hydrate their hair this Christmas with the Kérastase NUTRITIVE FONDANT HOLIDAY PACK. This is a great gift idea for anyone who might have gone a bit too hard at the at-home dying and bleaching this year. This pack contains 3 staples from the Nutritivee Fondant range: the Shampoo, Masque, and Treatment. These full sized products are lightweight on the hair, but still promote healthy length and strength. They’re also super nourishing and provide real results we’re sure your gift recipient will be bragging about.

As you can probably tell, we really love Christmas packaging. The Pixi Ornamental Tonic - Glow is dressed up like a little ornament and is designed to be hung on your tree as such. This is the Christmas edition of their classic Glow Tonic formula, which contains 5% Glycolic acid to promote an instant glow. It’s a perfect stocking filler or holiday gift basket idea that is gentle on all skin types and also just super adorable.
