Just a couple of weeks left till the big day and if, like me, you’ve already braved the highstreets you’ll be ready to finish your Christmas shopping online, curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea and no crowds to contend with! Here’s a few of my wintery beauty favourites to top up those festive stockings.
Officine Universelle Buly Savon Superfin – The packaging alone of this historic brand is special, and inside the scented soaps are just as lovely, pick from a collection with includes ‘damask rose’ and ‘komi forest’.
Diptyque Coton – Every year the candle kings at Diptyque bring out a limited edition range of candles. This year ‘Coton’ is part of the festive collection – a soft and smooth scent featuring tonka bean, musk and iris, encased in a beautiful glass adorned with blue and gold flames.
Fresh – I love the Fresh products, fuss free and effective with lovely scents. The gift sets are perfect for Christmas, brilliant collections of their most loved products. The ‘Hydration Boost’ set is ideal for winter worn skin with the gentle Soy Face Wash, Tea Elixir Serum to remedy tired skin and Rose Face Cream to strengthen the skin’s barrier, delivering dewy skin that’s plumped with moisture.
Jones Road – Simplified make-up for all skin types, wrapped up in perfect little pink boxes. For festive maekovers the ‘Miracle Balm’ is great for adding a dewy glow to your complexion, I pair it with ‘Sparkle Wash’ – a shimmery eyeshadow perfect for party season.
Grown Alchemist Giving Face set – A Christmas set which includes the Grown Alchemist favourites to cleanse and moisterise your skin, all packaged up in sizes ideal for travelling.
Thameen Discovery Set – I love this trio of perfumes from Thameen which has a scent for every Christmas occasion – Fanfare, Bohemian Infusion and Bravi. Each one pays tribute to one of the most iconic sights in London, Covent Garden. Fanfare, for example, delights with notes of lemon, flower market accord and patchouli to bottle the scent of the bustling Flower Market.
Gisou – This award-winning honey-infused hair oil is the perfect antidote to cold weather. Use this finishing product as the last step in your hair routine – just rub a few drops in your hands and smooth over your hair to eliminate frizz and promote maximum shine. A great present for all.
Victoria Beckham – I love the whole Victoria Beckham make-up range – and these little boxes of luxury are the perfect stocking filler. If you aren’t sure of someone’s skin type / shade I recommend a universal eye liner, these ones are long lasting and bold so make an effect on every eye.
Vieve – The ultimate party shimmer from Vieve. A high-impact, liquid highlighter that gives the look of ethereal glass skin whilst delivering serious staying power. It comes in three shades and is a great mood-lifter year round, but particularly fitting for festive shindigs!
Ultra Violette Vi’s Faves – A best-selling duo to protect and nourish both your face and body. Includes the Fave Fluid SPF 50+ and Extreme Screen SPF 50+. Because sun-protection isn’t just for summer.
Includes some gifted products.
