Christmas Gift Guide: Beauty Lovers

Christmas Gift Guide: Beauty Lovers

 The big day is fast approaching and so is the final day for deliveries! This will be my last gift guide on the blog for this year, but keep an eye out on my Youtube channel this Friday for a last-minute/stocking filler gift guide. 

For this last guide, we're tackling the beauty lovers in your life! There is always an abundance of beauty gift sets available at this time of year, so much so that there is sometimes too much choice! 

I've put together a little collection of some of my favourites from some of my favourite beauty companies, as well as some great sustainable options too. 

Tuck into these other gift guides afterwards:





TROPIC YOUR BEST SKIN BAUBLE

TROPIC YOUR BEST SKIN BAUBLE


I've already mentioned Tropic's other gift options in my last gift guide, but had to mention their skincare baubles as they are such a cute little treat!

The Your Best Skin Baubles (£28) are packed full of little skincare goodies and you can choose between the Clear (blemish-prone skin), Nourish (mature skin) and my favourite, the Glow (tired dull skin) set to best suit your type of skin.

In each bauble, you get pretty much a full skincare routine's worth of products, as well as a bamboo face cloth for washing off the cleansers in the set, making it well worth the money! This isn't any old bauble guys...

EYLURE MAGNETIC LASHES

EYLURE MAGNETIC LASHES


Eylure has always been one of my top lash brands, as they are so easy to apply for a first-timer, but what could get better about easy-to-apply lashes? Magnetic lashes! Read on and I'll explain...

Waiting for the glue to dry, and then applying them without resembling that a caterpillar has decided to take up residence on your face can still be a faff, so these Eylure lashes take out that faff with their patent-pending magnetic liner and lash system! All you have to do is apply the liner, wait for it to dry, and then the lashes will magically stick to the liner! It's absolutely genius, and great if you're a bit heavy-handed when applying glue. 

The other great thing as well, is that these last a lot longer than traditional lashes (up to 15 wears), meaning less waste! A couple of my favourites are the Fluttery Light's (ad-aff), Fluttery Intense's (ad-aff) (both £14.95), Faux Mink Volume's (ad-aff) (£19.95), Baroque Corner's (ad-aff) and Opulent Accent's (ad-aff) (both £13.95). 

L'OCCITANE VERBENA MANDARIN RANGE

L'OCCITANE VERBENA MANDARIN RANGE

  
If your loved one loves a citrusy scent, then how about gifting them some products from this range? The normal Verbena range is beautiful, but L'Occitane have also brought out this limited edition Mandarin range for this time of year that smells like a Christmassy spice orange dream. 

For a subtle smelling pamper treat, the shower foam (ad-aff) (£15) and body cream (ad-aff) (£26) are a great pair to treat someone with, or for those who want more of a powerful scent that lasts on the skin, the Eau de Toilette (ad-aff) (£49) is a great choice!

LUSH SHOWER GEL SETS

LUSH SHOWER GEL SETS


Lush is back again (can you tell I just adore them)! As well as their usual wonderful Christmas bath bombs and bubble bars, they also have some wonderful sets featuring some of their other beauty products!

Let's take this Snow Showers shower gel set (£24) for example. In this set, you get three of their Christmas shower gels: Yog Nog, Roasting Chestnuts on an Open Fire and Sleepy, making this perfect for someone who loves all three, or have never tried them before as a little taster kit! 

I need to also mention the packaging it comes in, and Lush really deserve a round of applause for this. This box is made from mycelium (fungi) and hemp, so it is completely compostable, meaning no excess packaging that can't be recycled! 

REN GLOW TO GO SKINCARE SET

REN GLOW TO GO SKINCARE SET


Let's get back to some skincare. REN have always had clean skincare in mind, and their Christmas Clean To Planet collection is no different. As well as creating skincare that is kind to your skin, their packaging has also been produced to leave as little impact on the planet as possible, as well as donating £1 from every set sold to Planet Patrol to help clean up our oceans and waterways worldwide. 

I particularly love the Glow To Go set (ad-aff) (£21), because who doesn't love glowy skin?! In this set you get the Daily AHA Tonic (acid exfoliation is great for your skin, even if you have sensitive skin like me), Vitamin C Gel Cream and the Glycolic Lactic Mask in travel friendly sizes, all to help exfoliate and brighten the skin ready for party season.

They have also partnered with German illustrator Lisa Tegtmeier to create these beautiful boxes that you can reuse after receiving this gift! 

IT COSMETICS ON-THE-GO BRUSH SET

IT COSMETICS ON-THE-GO BRUSH SET


Lastly, if your loved one loves makeup and is looking for some more tools to add to their collection, then this It Cosmetics set is worth a look at!

The Celebrate Your On-The-Go Brush set (ad-aff) (£29) features three gorgeous face brushes (believe me, these brushes are super soft and perfectly weighted for easy handling) for foundation, powder and concealer all snuggled into a travel-friendly case, making it perfect for popping into a handbag when out and about for on-the-go touch ups. 

I can't wait to use this when we're out and about a bit more, and this would make a brilliant main present or stocking filler for any beauty lover!

Thanks so much for joining me for my gift guides this year! As always, I love making them and loving hearing your feedback as well as what you've bought even more. 

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Or are you just starting?!

  1. Lovely, helpful and cute pics for your Christmas presents! Some are so well-presented that don't need that much, just a bag and a tag!

    I always repeat to myself to go to Lush but I know myself very well and I will spend more than I can so I still wait... I miss its seasonal goods, honestly!
    That limited edition by L'Occitane sounds truly perfect; in fact, Christmas is also clementines and all these small citrus fruits for me!

    xxx and stay safe!
