This skin care line was created by Oprah's facialist, Jennifer Brodeur—“a true skin guru.” It is free of toxins and artificial fragrances. While they target aging, they also deliver a beautiful glow. The cleanser gently preps the skin, the toner purifies and soothes it, and the moisturizer fights wrinkles while providing a layer of protection.Peoni Cleanser, Toner and Cream ($60–$195); amazon.com
These brushes have always been a favorite of celebrities and salon professionals. The Detangling Brush has a no-slip handle and soft, flexible bristles for a gentle detangling experience that won’t damage hair. The Round Brush used boar and nylon bristles to pick up more hair while styling, heightening it’s efficiency. And the wooden paddle brush can smooth through even the thickest, coarsest head of hair for sleek finish. But it’s not just their efficiency Oprah loves. “I'm a sucker for a fabulous shade of green,” she says.

This holiday gift set is a must for anyone looking to get a spa-like experience in their own living room. Using rose essential oils, you can soften feet, ankles, legs and knees. The scent of rose is said to sooth the soul and lift the spirit while lime is both refreshing and cleansing. “Founder Gloria Williams and I sniffed so many scents before settling on rose and rose-lime,” says Oprah. The kit includes soaking salts, cream and a pair of seriously soft socks.
