This year, I have been so incredibly organised that I haven’t had any need to stress about gifting and even wrapping. I have got myself into such a relaxed state about Christmas that I have been rather blasé about everything and now I’m remembering all of the little things I need to do. If you haven’t yet put managed to get all of your gifts, I have put together a few ideas for you for products that are pretty easy to get hold of from online retailers as well as high street stores like Boots.
Soap & Glory will always feature quite heavily for Christmas in terms of bath and body products, but have you tried the makeup before? I think it is a hugely underrated brand that has some brilliant products within the range. Many years ago, I was obsessed with Solar Powder and Archery brow pencil and they would be prominent products within my makeup bag. This year, the Soap & Glory Brow Fabulous kit has brought back memories of 2013 and my brows are living for the handy kit with everything I need for wow brows. A pair of tweezers, Archery Fibre Gel, Archery 2 in 1 Brow Pencil and Arch de Triumph brow contour pencil will make a great present for anyone who loves brows.
Whilst you’re in Boots, why not pick up some of the fun and funky gifts from Being by Sanctuary. As a huge lover of Sanctuary Spa, I’ve really loved the products that I have tried from their younger and trendier sister brand. The Being by Sanctuary Spa Tub Goals set is possibly the cutest set with the inflatable drinks holder to use in the bath, alongside a Hibiscus and Coconut Water Bubble Bath, a Cloudberry face mask and a body puff to buff. Quite possibly one of the most tropical products I’ve ever smelt this year. Also from Being by Sanctuary, the Salted Caramel and Macadamia Bon Bombs to drop into your bath for a wonderful experience. Would it be terrible if I kept these for myself?
Any makeup lover would be thrilled with some of the limited edition sets from Real Techniques this year. The Sleigh collection is absolutely gorgeous and the sets have all you need for your makeup. The Sleigh in It collection comes with the buffing brush which is an essential in my eyes, the fan brush for highlighting, a base shadow brush, a Miracle Complexion sponge and the cutest confetti makeup bag for storing your brushes. Add your Miracle Complexion mini sponges to the tree with the limited edition bauble which may be available in store.
Heading into Space NK at Christmastime fills me with joy. I literally want every Christmas gift set they have from my favourite brands. This year, the Caudalie have had some great sets available both in store at Space NK and online at Caudalie. I do feel that it’s not a Christmas without new Caudalie and the Vine Body Butter set would make a great gift for me, and others who love the power of the grape. The Vine range is delightful and the hanf cream in the kit is a personal favourite of mine. For another little trinket, how about the Caudalie Beauty Elixir Bauble. I love Beauty Elixir and I am working on making sure my family and friends love it too.
Also from Space NK, the very cute and limited edition collectors edition of the Talika Lipocils. I have been a huge fan of this this product for many years and I have seen results from it over and over again. My lashes live for it and any beauty lover would love this little baby in their stocking. Long, luscious lashes just by a using Lipocils daily? I’m sold!
If you are struggling for ideas for makeup for those who like a natural look but using quality products, take a look at Studio 10 makeup at Marks and Spencer. A much loved brand in my house, I have been using Studio 10 for many years and I love the products and how well they work. This year, I have been going for a more natural base so the Studio 10 Glow-Plexion Plumping Blush and Glow-Plexion Perfect Bronze for a flawless finish. I have also fallen for the Studio 10 Lip Perfecting Balm Gloss and I would be more than happy to see this in my stocking on Christmas Day.This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
