Well…hello December, I’ve been waiting for you all year! We are now officially in the month of Christmas; which means that even crimbo-phobic people cannot complain that it’s too early for Christmas talk! As mentioned in my last blog post (check it out here), this month will be dedicated to Christmas themed blog posts.
Now that we’re only three weeks away from the big day, I’m sure many of you will be thinking about presents for your loved ones. I’ve always been a firm believer that there are two types of people in this world – ultra organised freaks who get their Christmas shopping done with just one click on Amazon or classic procrastinators who sign themselves up for sweat drenched, frenzy filled panic shopping on Christmas Eve. I can safely say that I’m a freak! I waste no time in getting my Christmas shop done so that I can spend the rest of the month enjoying the festivities.
Every year my husband and family ask me the dreaded question – ‘what do you want for Christmas?’. I’m not reluctant to tell them what I want, I just want so many things that I struggle to pick just a few #spoiltchildproblems.
This year I have beauty on my mind. My Christmas wish list comprises of skin care, makeup, body care and all things beauty related (surprise surprise). The shops are filled with an array of beauty gift sets; which makes it hard to know which one is the right choice for you or a loved one. Don’t fret, I am here to help! I’ve rounded up a handful of gift sets; which I believe are the perfect presents for a beauty enthusiast like me.
Here’s my shortlist of Christmas beauty gift sets that will put a smile on any girl’s face:-
The Skincare lover
When it comes to skin care, you can’t go wrong with Liz Earle. The cult classic Cleanse and Polish is by far one of the most talked about skin care products ever created. If you’re into your skin care or are buying for someone who lives by the cardinal rule of cleanse, tone and moisturise then Liz Earle is the route you want to go down.
This set includes a 150ml sized cleanser and two muslin cloths encased in a keepsake drum. The classic formula includes naturally active ingredients such as cocoa butter, rosemary, eucalyptus and chamomile to soothe, tone and moisturise your skin.
Although Liz Earle offer many choices in gift sets, this set stood out to me as the most versatile and useable of them all; which can by men and women of all ages.
The body care lover
Soap & Glory is always at the top of my wish list every Christmas. Their gift sets are always so appealing. The packaging mimics the fun, quirky nature of their brand and even makes soap look glamourous! No wonder they are one of the top choices for beauty gift sets at Christmas.
Of all the scents that they offer, the SUGAR CRUSH™ fragrance is by far my favourite. You can imagine my delight when I saw a glitter topped hat box containing miniatures from the range. The set contains a body wash (75ml), body scrub (50ml), body buttercream (50ml), Hand Food (50ml) and a bonus body polisher.
This set is perfect for someone who is new to Soap & Glory or the SUGAR CRUSH™ range. It’s also perfect for taking with you on holiday.
The makeup lover
You can almost guarantee that any true makeup addict would give their right arm to have this makeup palette under their Christmas tree. The Vice 4 palette is one of the latest additions to the Urban Decay saga.
Filled with never-before-seen shimmery shades, this limited-edition palette will see you right through the Christmas party season. Urban Decay palettes have always been a guilty pleasure of mine as with most makeup enthusiasts. The beautifully packaged palettes and buttery soft eyeshadows always make my heart skip a beat!
The palette comes complete with a double-ended brush and a travel bag; which makes this the perfect gift for the makeup lover in your life.
The fragrance lover
If you or your loved one loves a good fragrance mist from Victoria’s Secret then try out this gift set. Containing 8 roller ball 2.66ml sized products, this set is perfect for the lady who loves to change up her scent, but doesn’t want to commit to full sized products.
The set contains Dream, Coconut Passion, Amber Romance, Passion Struck, Sheer Love, Pure Seduction, Love Addict and my personal favourite, Love Spell.
The gadget lover
If you’re looking to take your cleansing game to another level then investing in a facial brush is essential.
Magnitone offer amazing quality facial brushes in three bright colours. The brushes can be used on any skin type and are suitable for any age.
The Barefaced sets contain a facial brush, charger, splash proof travel case, Active Clean brush head and a 12 month warranty.
