What To Buy For The Beauty Buff In Your Life

You know they love all-things beauty, but aren’t sure where to start when it comes to getting their gift? You’re so not alone! We created our Christmas Gift Guide to help shop for the personality types you guys told us were the hardest to buy for. And as always, your wish is our command! 

With beauty buffs coming up again and again as impossible-to-please pals, we enlisted Pai’s resident glam girl Jade, to share her pointers for the best Christmas gift ideas for beauty lovers.

Gift ideas for beauty buffs with Pai's own Jade

Jade, what’s your role here at Pai?

“I’m Social Media Manager here at Pai, so anything emoji, caption or Instagram-related I’m your girl!”

Tell us why you’re our resident ‘Beauty Buff’?

“I think I have been nominated as ‘beauty buff’ here at Pai HQ because I’m always having the latest beauty treatments. Whether it’s laminated brows or vitamin facials, I’m just a sucker for testing out the latest trends! I also love to do my research into trends and ingredients so I actually know what I’m putting on my face. So, as much as I’m a makeup junkie and own more palettes than I would like to admit, I know the key to good makeup is having a good base, which starts with your skincare routine.”


Would you describe your skin as sensitive?

“I actually wouldn’t have described my skin as sensitive until recently. I went for a facial and I was told my cheek area is very sensitive, and this will be the first place my skin would react to products first. I don’t tend to notice it that much unless I use a mask. It usually just means I have some redness in those areas. It is something I try to consider when choosing skincare products though.”

My current go-to when I want to spend a bit more time on my evening routine is the Pai Kukui and Jojoba Bead Exfoliator. I think it is such an unsung hero! I personally use it around three times a week and it just makes my skin so soft without hurting it or leaving it red. Next up is the Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA mask. It’s also a gentle exfoliator but doesn’t dry my skin out. I would say my skin is more oily and acne prone which is why I love to use the Perfect Balance Blemish Serum on the days when I need to give my skin some oil-balancing TLC.”

What’s your #1 Pai Product?

“This is a tricky one because I have a whole shelfie full of Pai! But as I am a solid fan of double cleansing it would have to be both the Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil and our Camellia and Rose Gentle Cleanser. I actually can’t live without this duo!”

The product you’re most likely to give as a gift?

“The ideal Christmas beauty gift is definitely Rosehip Oil! First of all it’s beautiful, so giving it as a gift just makes sense! I also think if you’ve never used Pai before it’s such a good place to start as it’s such an effective oil. Plus I watched them make this in the lab here at Pai and it’s amazing to see how all the best ingredients are used.”

Have you started Christmas shopping yet?

“I would like to pretend to be low key and chilled about Christmas but I LOVE IT! So I actually bought my first present back in July (much to some friends’ horror) but it makes sense to start early so you can budget over the months!”


If you’re not a Christmas-in-July sort of shopper but are just about ready to start, make sure to head over to our Gift Guide. You’ll find our edit for Beauty Buffs just like Jade, as well as presents for your whole gang. Stay tuned to the blog too to meet our next resident hard-to-please gift-getter, your park-running, wild-swimming outdoorsy type!
