Holy Snails Gift Guide 2018

Looking for a unique gift for the skincare lovers in your life? The holidays are the perfect time to introduce them to Holy Snails. They'll be getting lovingly handmade skincare that's unlike anything on a retail shelf or behind a department store counter. But choosing skincare for someone else can be even more confusing than choosing it for ourselves. Here's our guide to gifting Holy Snails products.

All skin types:

Shark Sauce! Our best-selling product is also our go-to gift recommendation. This silky, fast-absorbing gel serum is made for all skin types and addresses a variety of skin concerns:

  • Dark spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Dehydration
  • Weakened skin barrier function
  • Loss of elasticity

As a bonus, if your giftee is into specific ingredients or ingredient themes, there may be a Sauce Du Mois Shark Sauce variant perfect for them!


Sensitive or easily irritated skin in need of serious soothing:

Snowbang Essence! This weightless liquid essence contains ceramides to quickly shore up skin's protective barrier, hydrolyzed oats to calm irritation, and a bevy of botanical extracts to reduce inflammation.


Vegan skincare fans:

Truly effective vegan skincare can be hard to find. Sunfish Serum, the N-Acetylglucosamine-free version of our best-selling Shark Sauce, could be the answer to a vegan's skincare prayers. Sunfish Serum addresses the same concerns as Shark Sauce, but without the shellfish-derived N-Acetylglucosamine ingredient.



We often get questions about what to buy for more mature skin types or loved ones with aging skin concerns. Vitamin C is generally the best recommendation, but not everyone is comfortable with the potential irritation of L-ascorbic acid vitamin C, or its instability. So we recommend our El Dorado vitamin C product instead! With 10% THDA vitamin C in an oil base, El Dorado provides the benefits of vitamin C without the usual downsides.


Dry skin types:

Perseids Facial Oil


Holiday season is also winter skin season, and dry skin types need all the help they can get. Our Perseids Oil deeply nourishes and protects dry skin from winter weather, blasting heaters, roaring fireplaces, and all the things that cause moisture loss and discomfort.


And if you're looking for more than one thing for that skincare fiend in your life, check out our curated Holy Snails gift sets!

Women's Aid Service

As an added reminder, a portion of all our sales during this month will be donated to the Women's Aid Service of Michigan! If you would like to learn more about what we're doing, or see how you can help, please check out our post on this matter. Thank you!
