The Nice List - Gifts For Those Who Matter Most

Who’s on your Nice List? It’s that time of year again when we seek out gifts for the people who matter most to us, the ones who have supported us throughout the year’s highs and lows. At Biossance, we’re busy making our list and checking it twice—and we bet you are too!

I got married this year, so I’m super motivated to give my loved ones extra thoughtful gifts as a thank you for their help and support throughout the craziness that is wedding planning. Read on for some gift-giving inspiration from my Nice List.

Who: My mother, Susan

What: Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel
Why: My mom was definitely my rock while wedding planning. I’d turn to her whenever I needed advice for smoothing things over because she’s incredibly good at letting things go and finding compromise. But I definitely don’t want her to compromise when it comes to her skincare. I know she’s self-conscious about the lines around her eyes, so our Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel is the perfect gift for her. It’s effective and safe because of the high standards we set for our products. Plus it’s a bestseller for a reason—and she deserves the best.

Who: My sister, KaraPhoto Credit: Cole Garrett Photography
What: 100% Squalane Oil
Why: My sister and I totally bond over new beauty products. We’re always texting each other about things we’ve tried and loved. One thing Kara is always on the hunt for is a moisturizer that can combat her extra-dry skin. She’s prone to peeling, so applying makeup can be a huge challenge. Not only will our 100% Squalane Oil boost the hydration power of whatever moisturizer she applies underneath, it will help her foundation glide on smoothly for a flawless finish. Who wouldn’t love that?

What: Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
Why: My Grandma Del is in her mid-80s, though you’d never know it from her gorgeous skin. To keep her glowing from head to toe, I’ll be giving her our Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil. Not only does it help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can help with brightening too, which is perfect for treating age spots. And with its subtle rose scent, it’s perfectly suited for someone as classic as my ever-so-stylish grandmother.

Who: My BFF, Morgan Photo Credit: Cole Garrett Photography
What: Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
Why: Morgan has been my best friend since high school and though she now lives in Austin, Texas, we somehow manage to stay in sync no matter the distance. Like last July when she gave birth to her daughter Stella the same day I got engaged in Ireland. Now pregnant with her second (a boy), she has to be extra wary of what she puts in and on her body. She also has mild rosacea, so I knew immediately I’d be giving her our Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer since it calms the look of skin redness. Plus, she’ll love how lightweight it is next summer when temperatures start to rise.
