With the Holidays just around the corner, we are so excited to start spreading cheer with our Holiday Gift Guide! As a makeup bag brand, we hold so many amazing products in our KUSSHI bags, so we wanted to let you in on our personal makeup and beauty favorites. These are products you cannot miss this Holiday shopping season.

We have partnered with our favorite brands to showcase products that the KUSSHI team loves and uses on a daily basis. As we enter the Holiday Season and have so many people to buy for, we want to give you a tried and true list of items that are great for gifts (or for yourself) at a variety of price points. These are the actual products that you would find in our teams' KUSSHI makeup bags. KUSSHI bags are for more than just makeup and can really hold any type of body, hair or beauty product you want to bring from point A to point B and we wanted to share that with you. 

Here's what inside our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide...

They provide both Korean innovations and traditional natural ingredients proven to help promote healthy skin no matter how much your hormones are fluctuating. We started using their Your Only Cleanser earlier this year and instantly became obsessed with it! No matter how much your hormones are fluctuating or which stage of life you are in, you need a safe, and effective cleanser that can leave your skin clean and clear. This 2-in-1 cleanser is a unique oil-to-foam blend that double cleanses your face without stripping away essential oils and moisture. With olive, jojoba seeds, chamomile flowers & geranium leaf oil extracts to melt away makeup and hydrate the skin. So lush!
