With Christmas only a month away now, it’s time to get savvy and start saving on your Christmas wishlist. So I’ve compiled some of my favourite gifts this season as inspiration for you all and to show you what new products have launched just in time for the festive season.
With two body washes and two body lotions inside, these pink crackers certainly will add some glamour to your Christmas decor. I love the thought of these instead of generic crackers, plus you’ll actually love and use the gift inside! I think I might add these onto my tree, as they are so pretty and would make great decorations also.
The ultimate Baylis & Harding gift set has landed in this beautiful hat box style. Complete with Body Butter, Bath Soak Crystals, Luxury Shower Creme, Silky Body Lotion & Sensuous Bath Creme it would be hard not to want this set from the Boudoire range. The Velvet Rose scent smells very fresh and luxurious a must have this Christmas!
Superdrug’s Flutter range is perfect for any young beauty lovers in the family, the simple and affordable designs means treating your little princess this Christmas has become even easier. These would all make great stocking fillers and at £1 for some items, you would mad to miss these bargains!
Who doesn’t love bath fizzer’s and six for only £3 is a great bargain for any bath lovers. I always find LUSH get really expensive and as I love having bath’s a few times a week, having cheaper alternative’s like this are perfect. These will make a great Christmas gift for any age I feel and the scents are great. In the pack you get, Coconut & White Peach, Orange & Satsuma, Strawberry & Raspberry, Cherry & Almond, Lime & Ginger and Lemon & Tea Tree.
Aimed at slightly an older audience again, I love the Sweet Snuggles range and would love to have these in my stocking this Christmas. The Vanilla scent smells great and at only £1 this is once again a bargain not to be missed.
Since getting a humidifier for my living room, I have been saving money on candles and buying room sprays and oils instead. I decided to include The Library Of Fragrance as I came across these in Boots and couldn’t get enough. From Play-Doh to Cocktails you really can get any scent your heart desires. I love the Gin & Tonic spray it’s certainly something different and adds a great atmosphere to any Christmas party. I also love the Iced Berries room spray for in the daytime, it’s a subtle but sweet scent to freshen up any room. Clean Sheets is a funny one because it honestly does smell exactly like Clean sheets…I think I’ll be using this one in the spring time to bring a fresh new scent into my house. At £15 these are middle of the range I would say with room spray’s they do last a long time and especially when only squirting a few drops into a humidifier.
I didn’t know that Joan Collins had her own beauty line, but when I came across this powder & lipstick duo I couldn’t resist. The timeless design oozes class and style and really does appeal to all age ranges I feel. Personally, I think this is a handbag saviour the powder sponge is too small for general use, but would be perfect for a pick me up throughout the day to stop any shine. The lipstick is in shade Amanda and is a gorgeous glossy red.
Joan Collins I Am Woman Dry Oil Body Polish £16
This was my first time trying a dry oil body polish which claims to be an at home spa treatment that imparts a youthful brightness and leaves skin feeling silky smooth and softly fragrant. Mineral rich Himalayan salts are blended with Avocado, Jojoba, Olive Oils & Vitamin C rich Kiwi fruit seeds. As fancy as that sounds it does smell amazing, when applying to damp skin it did honestly smell like I was in a spa. I loved how soft and hydrated my skin felt afterwards and I will be sticking this in my weekly skincare routine from now on!
Magnitone have released two new colours especially for Christmas! Rose Quartz and Glittery Gold are the latest additions to the ever-growing Magnitone family. I’ve had my Magnitone for nearly a year now and love how smooth and clear my skin looks when taking off my makeup at night. This a great budget friendly version of a facial brush and comes in a variety of colours. Make sure to check out my previous more in-depth review of Magnitone.
This got me really excited as I love HD Brows and have always wanted to try their makeup pencil. The Veet Sensitive Precision Styler has been raved about for a while by bloggers, so I wanted to put it to the test. I was quite apprehensive with my eyebrows, because if I went wrong there are no second chances! The safety attachments mean that no blade touches your skin, so you can’t go that wrong. I used the small eyebrow blade to neaten up any growth on my brow bone and it worked really well, it was smooth and picked up every hair easily.
A massive thank you to Veet, Joan Collins, Magnitone, Superdrug, The Library Of Fragrance and Baylis & Harding for kindly sending these fabulous products to try. Please do let me know your thoughts and what’s on your Christmas list in the comments below.
