Welcome to my one of three Christmas gift guides and my first of many Christmas posts! I can’t believe Christmas is next month. Where has this year gone? It has definitely flown by that’s for sure! Because Christmas is just five weeks or so away, you might be panicking about the large amount of present shopping you still have to do. But try not to worry, since I have got that all covered for you, just you wait and see!
Today’s post is the first of my gift guides and it is a list of some present ideas for any beauty lovers out there. I’ve tried to choose affordable or worth the money pieces, that are easy to get hold of whether you’re more of an online shopper or someone who likes to go in store to check out items. Feel free to use this guide to build ideas on what you might want to buy your best friend, sister, mum or girlfriend. I personally feel like there’s something there for all beauty lovers out there, whether they’re more of a fan of taking care of their skin or they are wanting to try new products and build their make-up collection. Or maybe this list might be able to give you some inspiration of what it might be that you actually wish to receive this Christmas. Let’s roll…
1. Benefit REAL Cheeky Party Kit – £29.50:
Starting off with one for the make-up lover, this Benefit set is perfect for anyone who is wanting to try out some of Benefit’s products or is already a fan of this brand! The set contains six powders including popular ‘Hoola’, best-selling mascara ‘They’re real’ and ‘They’re real’ liner. I believe this set is really affordable, as some of the Benefit products start between £20-30 for just one. But in theory, you’re getting seven products for less than £30!!!!
2. Kérastase Discipline Fondant Fluidealiste – £14.45 (on feelunique.com):
If you know someone who is a big fan of taking care of their hair and loves trying new products to maintain healthy locks, then this gift will be perfect for them! This product aims to transform hair to be softer, smoother and fluid like. It provides suppleness and shine with a lightweight finish. Who doesn’t love the sound of that?
3. Philosophy Peppermint Stick Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath – £3.50:
Not only is this gift idea very affordable, but who doesn’t love to receive a shower and bath gift? This present would suit almost everybody! Philosophy also do other scents of the same product, so if you know someone who loves a particular scent, then go check out what other scents they do in the range and find that perfect gift!
4. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Starter Kit – £15.50:
This cleanser is the most awarded cleanser in the UK, which surely means that it is a great product, right? If you know someone who takes really good care of their skin or maybe someone who is struggling with their skin at the moment, why not treat them to this cleanse and polish starter kit? Perfect for mums, sisters, girlfriends, friends and even your grandma!
5. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette – £39.00:
This palette has grown increasingly popular and is a great buy for make-up fans! I’m pretty sure that a few girl’s have got this on their wishlist at the moment. This palette contains powder shadows that are infused mattes or shimmers shades of natural browns, delicate pinks and luscious plums. I personally love the look of this palette and it is packaged like a chocolate bar, how cool and different is that?
6. Ghd Limited Edition Arctic Gold V Classic Styler Gift Set – £129.00:
Everyone know’s how popular Ghd’s are for styling hair. So why not treat your loved one to the limited edition Arctic gold V classic styler gift set? Ghd’s are great for multi purpose for not only straightening hair, but also creating curls and waves! This set contains a styler, heat mat and roll bag with the gold gift box which makes storing away your styler great! I love the gold finish of this set and to me it just screams Christmas/Winter time.
7. Soap & Glory Belle Of The Ball – £12.00:
For me personally, I always feel like Soap & Glory always do some of the best gift sets out there! This one is definitely no exception. I love the design of this with the inspired christmas bauble. This set is scented with pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla. It contains a body wash, a scrub, a body cream, a hand cream and a body polisher. Also it is such great value at only £12!!!
8. Real Techniques Core Collection – £20.99:
I literally swear by Real Techniques brushes. They’re affordable and work really well when applying make-up. The core collection is a great set as I believe that you can end up using all the brushes in the set every day! Plus the set comes with a case so it makes storing your brushes easy, especially when you’re travelling.
9. The Balm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer – £17.50:
This product has been raved and popularised by beauty bloggers! I believe this highlighter is so worth the money. It gives such a gorgeous high pigmented glow on the face. Every make-up lover would be more than happy to wake up on Christmas with a new make-up product to try.
10. Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet – £56.50:
