Beauty Gifts For Her This Christmas
What do you buy a girl who has every beauty product under the sun? Why, more beauty products, of course. Don’t ever tell a beauty lover she has too much make up or ask if she needs another highlighter… the answer is always yes. Especially if it’s wrapped up in Christmas packaging, complete with a bow!
My enthusiasm for beauty products never fades and I’m forever willing to try new products, but I’ve definitely been more loyal to certain brands this year. I always look forward to seeing what my favourite brands come up with and I’m pleased to say that this year’s Christmas collections are better than ever!
Christmas is made easy with Molton Brown. The luxury bath and body fragrances are always so beautifully presents in their signature gift boxes – all year round! – they’re gift bag ready, so you won’t even have to worry about wrapping them (I have zero wrapping skills so avoid when I can).
bareMinerals is a beautiful brand who’s offering their best-selling beauty heroes with a festive twist. Inspired by what they call “clean beauty”, they combine their expert knowledge into innovative products that feels kinder on skin.
I go through phases with skincare and have to change things up accordingly. I spent many years using Liz Earle, which completely transformed my skin for the better. But for the past 18 months, my skin has taken well to Tropic Skincare products – in particular the serums – and I can see even more of an improvement to how my skin looks. The fact that people think I am 10 years younger than what I am is really all down to brands like Tropic, really!
As well as skincare, they also have a body care collection (and I love it all!) but their whipped body velvets are particularly lovely and makes a dream gift for any beauty lover. This set features 3 different scents – coconut, passion fruit and pomelo – they’re a dream to apply and smell so good.
Know someone who needs to have some chill time over Christmas? This Temple Spa gift set will sort them right out. This aptly named Do Not Disturb gift set is to help created a calming mood and restore your peace of mind. The 6-piece kit (£42) consists of do not disturb door tag, Quietude calming mist, Drift Away massage oil, Duvet comforting body cream, Becalm soothing face mask and Repose aromatherapy resting cream.
You can always rely on Benefit to deliver the WOW factor when it comes to gifting. As cute as ever, the cake theme gift sets look great. Containing a mixture of mini sized products and full size, this lovely set will light up any Benefit fan’s face.
Positioned as a well-being brand who are passionate about ethical beauty and health, Fushi is a British brand that stays true to their values. For those who are dedicated to a lifestyle of healthy-living, I’d recommend taking a look at what Fushi have got to offer.
Using carefully sourced purest ingredients from all over the world, Fushi creates their lotions and potions in a London workshop which includes herbal supplements, vitamins, oils, body care, and much more. To get a flavour of what Fushi is all about, try Fushi’s Heavenly Rose & Jasmine gift set (£35) – formulated for all skin types and designed to leave skin feeling fresh and your mind feeling rested.
If you love beauty brands like Benefit Cosmetics, Too Faced, and Paul & Joe, then you’ll love Winky Lux. I think it’s a fairly new brand but they’ve landed with a bang. Unsure when they first launched in the UK but I’ve been seeing their products all of a sudden pop up all over the place, it’s all over Instagram – and what an Instagrammable brand it is too!
The cosmetics brand describes the poodle as it’s spirit animal. As I have a miniature poodle pup, I am instantly going to be drawn to anyone and anything that describes a poodle as their spirit animals. Like, yeah. Winky Lux have a really fun sense of humour and style, and is definitely a brand to watch!
When I love a brand, I will make sure all my friends know about it. Like when I was obsessed with Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish, I bought them for friends and family members as birthday gifts (even my dad). Gatineau will be this year’s Liz Earle. And the product I want to rave about? Gatineau’s Floracil Plus Gentle Eye Make Up Remover.
PSA: removing your make up before you go to bed is so important in maintaining your skin’s healthy appearance. And I know it can be a chore but it’s made easy with a make-up remover like the Floracil Plus. No more panda eyes! Included as one of the products in Gatineau’s Gentle Silk Cleansing Collection (£25), let this be the gift that helps someone get in to a new, effortless, skincare routine in 2019!
This gorgeous little Nuxe gift set from Birchbox is only £10 and it’s quite a decent size so it looks more expensive than it is. In this cracker gift set, you get 4 mini products in it. I’m not too crazy about the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse but I adore the Reve de Miel range, especially the face cleanser. Find out what other Nuxe products I recommend.
I’d love some Emma Hardie gifts under the Christmas tree this year, and so would the makeup and skincare lover in your life, trust me! Packaged beautifully, this Glow On The Go gift set (£45) includes amazing face primer and plump & glow hydrating facial mist. Both can be used on it’s own or as part of skincare routine for the extra protection to the skin.
