The 2020 season of giving (and shopping) has officially kicked off! I think we can all agree that to say it’s been a ‘heck of a year’ is the understatement of the century. Though everyone has been affected by the events of 2020 in some way, I think it’s safe to say that small businesses, and handmade businesses have been hit the worst. With shutdowns, layoffs/furloughs, reduced capacities, supply chain issues affecting sales, etc. many small businesses had to close. The ones who survived need our support now more than ever. As the memes say, Amazon, Walmart, Target, and other giant corporations like that don’t need your holiday dollars. They will be fine. But when you buy products from small and handmade businesses, you are helping to feed someone’s family, pay their rent or mortgage, or pay their internet bills so their kids can do online school. So, this giving season, I bring you the Create Your Skincare 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!
Part of my commitment to anyone who chooses to invest in Create Your Skincare Pro education is my support during, and after their time in class with me. I love my students so much, and it is my honor and pleasure to share some of their wonderful creations with you in this curated guide! All the products you see here are formulated by current or former Create Your Skincare Pro students or my own private clients. They were selected for this guide either because they are offering a holiday or season-specific offer, or because the products are great for the needs of dry winter skin.
