Christmas has always been a beauty lover’s nirvana because brands ‘go big’ with their offerings and even bigger on packaging in order to outdo the competition and grab your attention. However, all the shinning objects can get overwhelming and confusing if you’re looking for a magical beauty and skincare gift that will make an impact and not break the bank. Here are a chosen few from my favourite brands that’ll hit the spot this Christmas.
Pixi Skintreats Best of Retinol:
There’s nothing like the gift of beautiful skin and you can do it with this pack by Pixie. The pack contains Deluxe travel size of Retinol Jasmine Cleanser, Retinol Tonic, and Retinol Jasmine Lotion, effectively a three-step routine to radiant skin. Retinol rejuvenates the skin for a natural glow and the additional antioxidants and botanicals replenish skin for a smoother, softer appearance.
Liz Earle Naturally Active Set – Full Body Revival:
I’m a big fan of Liz Earle’s cleanser and polish set so I don’t need convincing on how good this gift set is. Infused with the fresh, uplifting scent of eucalyptus, this invigorating skincare gift set contains Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser which melts away daily grime, impurities and make up, Cleanse & Polish™ Body Eucalyptus & Cardamom which delivers 48 hours moisturisation all over, leaving skin soft and delicately scented and a Skin Replenishing Body Balm to nourish and revitalise
Polaar Scandinavian Christmas Gift Set :
The best of Polaar Skincare range, beautifully packaged in custom Christmas decorated boxes. What’s not to love? Everything I’ve tried from Polaar so far has been great. I love the texture of their creams and the ingredients are of the highest quality and now, I love the gift sets. There are many to choose from but I went for this Scandinavian Christmas gift set because it spells perfect winter pampering night in. It contains all the Polaar essentials including a warming limited-edition candle, Revitalising Polar Night Cream, and Northern Light Smoothing Cream. And finally, the box it comes in can be reused for storage or holding beauty essentials like brushes.
Sleek Makeup The Experimenter Kit:
There’s been a lot from Sleek this year but the classics always are the favourites. My pick from the Christmas range this year contains a mixture of the old and the new in a collection of makeup products for those who like to experiment with their makeup. It contains everything you need to create endless looks AM to PM. Now, just £15 at Boots.
Sleek Makeup Glitter Lip Kit:
More of a stocking filler than a main gift, this will still make any beauty lover’s Christmas. I’m a big fan of Sleek’s Liquid Matte Me range and this Kit allows you to build on the colour to create countless looks. It’s all about you how creative you can get. Only £10.
Polaar Lapland Cracker
Christmas crackers are cute whatever they contain but I’m besotted with this one because it packs a punch – all the products inside hydrate face, hands and lips. For £16, you get a Polaar Genuine Lapland Face Cream, Genuine Lapland Hand Cream and a Genuine Lapland Lip Balm; all of which contains Omega 3 to naturally strengthen skin cells, as well as shea butter and olive oil to repair dry skin – perfect for the Winter season.
Pepe Jeans London Celebrate for Her
This is really whimsical and perfect for Christmas and if you like cocktails, then that’s an added bonus too. The fragrances are cocktails inspired with notes of sweet and savoury notes designed to keep the senses alert at all times. The gift set packaging is pretty spectacular too. I predict this will be a hit Christmas.
Charlotte Tilbury Glittering Galaxy Of Makeup Magic Beauty Advent Calendar
I must admit the novelty of Beauty Advent calendars is wearing off for me but then every now and then, something so magnificent pops up, it gets me super excited. That’s exactly what Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar did. It contains 12 full size and travel size makeup and skincare icons from the brand housed in a gorgeous box. £120 is a little up there but if you’re looking for a showstopping beauty gift this Christmas, this will be the one.
