Christmas Gift Ideas: Beauty Treats


| Christmas Gift Ideas: Beauty Treats! |

All good things must come to an end and for today's post, I'm sharing my last gift guide of this year. This instalment is the ultimate guide for the beauty lovers in your life with lots of great value gift sets, dreamy perfume picks and swoon-worthy makeup!

Part 1: Skincare:
I love stocking up on skincare products at this time of year as the gift sets and offers are great value! I have a few Origins products on my wish list this year including the Make A Difference Set which contains Drink Up Intensive Mask (30ml), Make A Difference Cleansing Milk (50ml) and Make A Difference Plus Moisturiser (50ml). Priced at €46, (it's currently on sale for €41.40!) it's such good value, considering the Make A Difference Plus Moisturiser costs €46 by itself!

The Origins Ginzing Get Up And Glow set is another great option for any skincare lovers in your life. The set contains a full size of my favourite moisturiser, the lightweight gel formula is cooling, soothing and hydrating and the product refreshes the skin in the mornings! 
The refreshing scrub cleanser and the ginzing eye cream also come in the set and they're both great products for achieving smooth, refreshed skin!

Last Christmas I treated myself to the Clinique More Than Moisture Gift Set and it's back again this year! This year's set is a little bit different to last year's which is great if you want to repurchase it this year. Besides the usual full-size Moisture Surge Moisturiser and a mini Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, it contains a mini Moisture Surge Face Spray instead of the hydrating supercharged concentrate serum and it also has a new shade of the Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm. It's great value and if you're thinking of purchasing it then definitely keep an eye on the sales - It's currently on offer for €45 instead of €50!

Jo Malone Christmas Gifts

Part 2: Fragrance:
If you're looking for a luxurious treat for a loved one or for yourself this Christmas then Jo Malone fragrances are my top pick. I have Red Roses and English Pear & Freesia which are both incredible scents! If you're not sure which scent to buy for someone then the gift sets are great options. They have a Christmas Ornament that contains a mini Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne and a mini English Pear & Freesia Body Creme for €28 or the Christmas Cracker looks lovely too, containing a mini Red Roses Cologne, a mini English Oak & Redcurrant Body and Hand Wash, and a mini Lime Basil & Mandarin Body Creme.

I've had a few samples of Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb over the years and I love it so I've been wanting to treat myself to a bottle for a while! Not only is the fragrance a beautiful sweet scent that I think lots of ladies will love, but the packaging is also very pretty and it would be such a treat to find under the tree!

Part 3: Makeup:
For any makeup enthusiasts in your life, I highly recommend the Huda Beauty Obsessions palettes. I have the Mauve Obsessions palette and you get nine eyeshadows housed in a small compact with a good mirror - perfect for your travel makeup bag - for £25 or €28. They've also added to their Obsessions palette line with the new Ruby Obsessions Palette and the Topaz Obsessions Palette - the shades look amazing!

The Urban Decay Naked palettes are a classic Christmas present for lots of beauty lovers and this year their new release is the Naked Cherry palette - I have a feeling there'll be a few of these in Santa's sack this year! If you're looking for a warm-toned brown and copper palette then I recommend Naked Heat, it was one of my favourite launches last year!

My favourite makeup gift sets this year include the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Set as well as the Stila Oh My Stars Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow Set. I have the Frozen Quartz By Terry Ombre Blackstar, it's the prettiest cream shadow I own and I think the set is a lovely idea for someone who wants to try the Ombre Blackstars. I loved last year's edit of the Stila eyeshadow set and I got so much use out of the shadows - they're great for statement makeup looks!

I wrote a roundup of my favourite products from Charlotte Tilbury's Cosmic Gift Shop last weekend but it wouldn't be a beauty gift guide without some CT products so I wanted to mention some of her permanent products in this post as they would be great gifts too! Filmstar Bronze & Glow and Flawless Filter would both be lovely luxurious treats for any Charlotte Tilbury makeup lovers and you'd be giving the gift of a flawless, sculpted, glowing complexion *insert winking emoji*

Have you any beauty treats on your wish list for Christmas?

Love,
