Teenagers can be a nightmare to buy for at the best of times, but I feel like nowadays, the younger generation are really into more of the ‘grown up’ beauty products that people in their 20’s or 30’s are into. I never wore makeup as a young teen, but these days I see 13 year olds with a contour sharp enough to cut me!
I’ve compiled a round up of inexpensive products which will make great gifts or stocking fillers for the tween in your life!
Hello Kitty Tangle Teezer
A tangle teezer that’s Pink and has Hello Kitty printed on it would be on any girly teen’s wishlist. This cute compact hair styling brush is perfect to keep in school bags and to keep hair in tact all throughout the day. It can be used to back comb, brush out kinks and smooth the hair.
Accesorize Love Lily Fragrance
A cute scent with a pretty floral bottle and Pink packaging will really go down well with the teen who wants to smell good all the time! Love Lily has high notes of raspberry, jasmine and orange which smells so light and fresh it can be used daily without smelling over powering. The flower cap is my favourite feature and makes a great collectors bottle. There is an under tone of sweet musk to this scent but that’s what makes it so perfect for a teenager to wear. The light floral tones certainly caught me and although I may not be a teen, I am enjoying this for myself! Its priced at only £19 which makes it affordable.
Monsoon Amber and Frankincense Candle
I remember being totally obsessed with candles as a teenager, but they were never as fancy as this! The glass jar which has a gold decorative design on it, can be used after to store stationary or makeup brushes and it looks so expensive without breaking the bank. The Monsoon Amber & Frankincense Candle is priced at only £17 and it smells incredible and rich. There are notes of cedar and patchouli which is strong yet not over powering. The scent is long lasting, and if the packaging is just simply stunning. I love the contrast of the gold against the glass. It looks so elegant!
Monsoon Amber and Frankincense Diffuser
In the same fashion as the candle, the diffuser contains spicy wooden notes. It makes a great addition to the candle and fills the room with the most wonderful warm scent. It also comes housed in a clear glass bottle with golden accents which can be used later as a decorative piece. Buy the candle and diffuser together as a set this Christmas, it will make the perfect duo for any teen!
Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Oil
These lip oils by Too Faced are absolutely fantastic for teens. They smell like Peach, they aren’t too heavy and the colour is subtle yet prominent and the colours aren’t too out there and over the top. I’ve been enjoying using these myself, and I think the younger girls will love them because of the cute peach packaging, the little details on the product and best of all the muted Peach colour selection. The lip oils are only £16 and if you’re buying a gift for someone who is just getting into makeup, this makes a great addition to any starter kit.
The doe foot applicator is very easy to apply to the lips and gives nice even coverage.
The swatches show you just how nude and muted the tones are which make them perfect presents to be used everyday. I love them all to be honest and I know any teen would too!
Too Faced are all about the packaging and I love the tops of the oils which each have a cute little peach on each lid!
I hope this guide has given you some inspiration for the tweens in your life!
