Skincare gifts are one of my absolute favourite things to get under the tree at Christmas.My favourites at Emma Hardie are killing it this year with their Christmas gift sets in terms of both the extent of the range and value. My absolute pick of the bunch is this amazing Ultimate Collection Gift Set.Housed inside this beautiful golden box you’ll find several of the brand’s top sellers including the Moringa Cleansing Balm (50ml), Plump and Glow Hydrating Facial Mist (full size), my favourite Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask (full size), Protect and Prime SPF30 (30ml), a dual action cleansing cloth and a pot of Rosehip Exfoliating Seeds (5g) – all for just £65.00!! To buy the products separately would set you back £159 so this is amazing value! Another brand who have really impressed me with their Christmas gift sets is french luxury skincare brand, Gatineau. This DefiLift 3D Firming Christmas collection contains a DefiLift 3D moisturiser and eye cream along with a Revolumising Lip Care treatment to help hydrate tone and firm the skin and lips. With a £174 value, you can save yourself 56% and get this little bag of treats for just £75.00! I think any skincare junkie would be happy to find this under the tree at Christmas!
For the Make Up JunkieMAC never seem to get it wrong when it comes to their Christmas offerings and this year is no exception in the form of their Shiny, Pretty Things Collection. I couldn’t resist picking up this golden themed Mini Glitter and Pigments set which contains two mini pigments in English Gilt (a bright champagne) and Shine Time (a sparkling burgundy). The set also contains 2 mini glitters in Copper and Gold. For just £25.00, this set is perfect for your glamorous friend or as a treat to yourself to help your Christmas party looks! Similarly, this trio of Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid glitters is always going to be a winner for a make up fiend. Containing three of the brand’s top selling shades, Diamond Dust, Kitten Karma and , for just £29.00, this kit is perfect for creating the perfect festive eye look! The formulation is incredible and the glitters are beyond striking! I can’t wait to play with these. When I seen this Dr Seuss collection from PUR Cosmetics it was love at first sight! The Grinch Good Enough to Steal Palette is a perfect collectors item. Containing 10 silky smooth eye shadows which includes two stunning glitters in red and green, a stunning highlighter, a rose toned blush and a colour changing lip balm, this 12 piece palette has everything you could want to use- if you can bring yourself to use it that is! Coming in at £39.00, it is on the more expensive end of the scale, but it is beautiful collectors item to have and so festive! If you’re looking for a little stocking filler, I really love this cracker from Eyeko. It contains a little travel size of their best selling Black Magic mascara along with a travel size Eye Do liquid eyeliner for just £15.00 and the packaging is so adorable! For the Fragrance Fiend A good fragrance gift set just screams Christmas to me. I really like this DKNY Stories Gift Set which contains a 50ml Eau De Parfum and generous sized 100ml matching shower gel for £61.00. The perfume is floral and woody with top notes of pink pepper, black cardamom and pink guava mousse and base notes of vanilla bean and white sandalwood. This will absolutely be coming on holiday with me next year! We all know Jo Malone is one of my all time favourite brands and this year if I was to find their limited edition White Moss and Snowdrop Cologne under the tree, I would be very happy! Think forest fresh moss, golden amber and a burst of cardamom. Amazing. So there we have my top Beauty picks for this festive season! What’s on your wish lists? Thanks for reading! Lynsey xox
