Day after day, one little pot of luxury can deliver luminous, confidence-sparking skin on repeat. And what's better than that? Honestly, not much.

We tapped Giorgi Strachan, MECCA Beauty Board member and Skincare Education Manager, to tell us her top skincare picks (that also happen to be fail-proof options anyone with skin is sure to love) that'll crown you 'Friend of the Year' this holiday season.


"Body care is a wonderful way to enhance one's daily skin ritual. Equal parts uplifting and grounding, this body wash by Flamingo Estate is a great option for anyone – and a safe gift for those who you may not know too well!"


"Violette_FR's iconic three-in-one cream spray is the perfect gift for those who love a simple (and chic!) skincare routine as it's like a toner, serum and moisturiser in one. This formulation was developed for even the most sensitive skin, so it's a safe bet when it comes to gifting for all skin types."


"This Allies of Skin set is the perfect daily routine, all mapped out. It includes the bestselling Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser, a suits-all cleanser that leaves the skin feeling smooth and hydrated. It also outlines exactly when and how to use each formula – super easy to navigate as a skincare newbie!"


"This moisturiser has a lightweight texture that's perfect for summer, providing hydration without any extra greasiness. It's perfect for those seeking more plant-derived skincare, especially if they have oily skin."


"Designed to purify and gently exfoliate, this silky balm is great for those who want to add a moment of luxury to their cleansing routine. It provides an aromatic, sensorial experience, while leaving the skin balanced (without any oily residue). Win-win!"


"The ultimate 'cool girl' skincare brand, Emma Lewisham is all about plant-derived skincare based in science. This overnight mask is a great gift for those who live busy lives and want the benefits of a five-step routine in one."


"This facial cleanser is my go-to for gifting, thanks to its pillow-soft texture and easy to use formula. Harnessing Japanese rice and the brand's signature Hadasei-3 blend of fermented, antioxidant-rich superfoods, this cleanser is sure to please any recipient and will leave the skin glowing and soft."


"For those who love to glow (whether they're more of a skincare enthusiast or a makeup lover), Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Mini Skin Set is perfect! These runway-ready formulations are specifically designed to layer under makeup for the ultimate skin prep."


"Moon Juice are one of those true 'if you know, you know' brands that I love to gift. Their skincare is packed full of adaptogens, and their packaging brings a chic, LA energy to any bathroom. This jelly serum is a great gift for the upcoming summer and will leave their skin feeling plump and hydrated, without any heaviness!"
