Struggling to figure out what to buy for that beauty product addict in your life? Look no further! Here are my top picks in skincare, makeup, and fragrance, ranging from £20 and under stocking stuffers, to £50 and over luxury items!
£20 and under
Seventh Heaven pillow spray set – This Works £15
This Works are the go-to brand for sleep-inducing relaxation products. With their pillow spray achieving cult status within the beauty community, this gift set of 7 mini sprays is the perfect gift for both the seasoned This Works addict, or any newbie to the world of relaxing beauty products. Especially perfect for that person in your life who travels a lot for work and may find it difficult to sleep in unfamiliar hotel rooms all the time, they can pop one of these mini sized sprays into their suitcase and they’re guaranteed a better nights sleep! Trust me, they’ll be addicted soon enough.
The Night Before Christmas – Lush £12.75
Sticking with the category of relaxing products, this lovely little pre-wrapped gift box from Lush is filled with 3 relaxing bath products, specifically chosen with the theme of Christmas Eve in mind. Including 2 bath bombs and a multi-use bubble bar, this may be the perfect pressie for that hard to buy for work colleague or your ‘Secret Santa’ gifting partner… especially good to give if you know it’s going to be opened before the “big day”, so the recipient can actually use the products in the stressful run-up to the 25th!
Masks To Go – Origins £8
A perfect stocking stuffer for any skincare addict. This little pack includes 4 single use pods of Origins’ best selling ‘Clear Improvements’ mask. Once again, a fantastic choice for anyone who travels a lot and may have stressed or tired skin!
£50 and under
Desk to Disco Duo – Charlotte Tilbury £42
Charlotte Tilbury is a newer name in the cosmetics industry, but is certainly not new in the makeup world. A makeup artist to the stars, Tilbury has created this luxurious makeup line with Hollywood glamour in mind. The ‘Desk to Disco Duo’ lipsticks will make a perfect gift for makeup lovers at Christmastime. Not only will they be impressed with your knowledge of new and trendy makeup brands, but they will be blown away by the beautiful gold packaging and luxe quality of these lipsticks. I suggest picking the ‘Walk of Shame & Red Carpet Red’ duo for the holiday season, though other shades are also available as duos.
Luxury Size Lavender Hand Cream – Jurlique £33
This one is an easy pick for me, as I’m a bit of a Jurlique addict. Their lavender hand cream is creamy and luxurious, yet melts into your hands almost instantly, not taking forever to dry like so many other hand creams. This luxury size would make anyone happy during the wintertime. And don’t worry about the lavender scent smelling old-fashioned or “grannyish” – Jurlique use only the best, freshest lavender, which lends to a beautiful scent from this must-have dry-hands saviour!
Sensitive Starter Set – Jurlique £35
Told you I was a Jurlique addict! But honestly, any real skincare enthusiast would be thrilled with this starter kit. This is the best line from Jurlique for multiple skintypes – a calming and soothing range using ingredients like Calendula and their ‘Comfort Complex’ to help relax and calm any skin type. Whether acne prone or dehydrated, this range will give you some much-needed nourishment and a little pampering, especially during the winter months. Also perfect for those who want to get into a good skincare routine, but don’t quite know where to start.
Molecule 01 – Escentric Molecules £66.00
This is an extremely unique fragrance. Molecule 01 changes its scent depending on the wearer – smelling different, but always amazing, on any man or woman who wears it. The most interesting thing about Molecule 01 is that you usually can not smell it on yourself, but others can smell it on you. An absolutely brilliant gift for a science geek who also likes beauty!
The Supermodel Genius Tutorial Video Box – Charlotte Tilbury £200
As the name suggests, this is an absolutely genius gift idea for the YouTube generation! This beauty box includes everything you need to create an entire makeup look, but best of all inside the box is a mini screen with a preloaded tutorial video from Tilbury herself to show you how to complete a perfect look with the included products! A truly indulgent and luxurious gift, while also being very cool and techy!
PMD – Personal Microdermabrasion £115
Another one for the techy gadget lover in your life, the PMD personal microderm tool is perfect for anyone who has suffered with acne in the past, or has any type of facial scarring, hyperpigmentation, or uneven skintone. Touted to be more effective than expensive clinical microdermabrasion treatments, this tool is used once a week to help resurface and regenerate the skin. Included is a must-watch tutorial DVD, to make sure you use the tool safely. This is definitely one for those serious skincare junkies, and maybe those who already have and love their facial cleansing brush. I can vouch for this myself, I have used the PMD for nearly six months now and my skin has improved dramatically. Just make sure to buy the ‘International’ version online so it will work with our UK plug system!
