Now that it's officially twelve days before Christmas Day, I'm finally putting up my Christmas tree and this year, instead of coming up with a colour theme for the little tree that I have in my bedroom, I thought that I would instead, 'Decorate The Tree With Beauty'.
To celebrate it being exactly twelve days before the big day itself, I made it my mission to find twelve of the best beauty baubles and tree decorations that I could find and believe it or not but there were so many to choose from this Christmas. In the end I narrowed it down to my top twelve, which feature today. Not only are they an inventive way of decorating your Christmas tree this year but they also make for great Secret Santa and Stocking Filler gifts and are a fantastically affordable way of trying out new products too. So let's get onto it and as I've photographed each of the decorations individually, I must admit that today's Blogmas post is a bit of a photo heavy one.
If you're someone who looks forward to hearing that the holidays are coming via Coca-Cola, the Coca Cola Lip Smacker Festive Bauble should have you smiling this Christmas. You probably saw me mention how fabulous Lip Smacker's gift ideas have been this year in my Cute Christmas Ideas For Teenage Girls & Younger post and this bauble continues that. I managed to pick this up for £7 in Topshop which I don't think is too much for what it is and what it includes. The Lip Smacker lip balms always smell just like the fizzy drinks too.
Who doesn't love a Christmas Yankee Candle, or several? Well you can now hang a few Yankee scents on your tree thanks to the Yankee Candle 2015 Keepsake Bauble. Inside are three brilliant Christmas scents in tart form for £7.99. There's Christmas Garland, Angel's Wings and my current favourite; Berry Trifle. And you've also got a bauble that will always remind you of Christmas 2015.
Too Faced's Christmas offerings are always out of this world and this Too Faced Better Than Sex Ornament is no different. The Better Than Sex Mascara is honestly one of the greatest mascara's that I've ever tried and if you've been wanting to try it yourself but don't fancy committing to the full size, this is a great way to do so this Christmas. And for £10, who can complain?
During Blogmas you've heard me say several times how much I've been loving Soap & Glory's Christmas offerings this year and this bauble takes that to another level. Not only is it only £5 (and part of the Boots 3 for 2) but it includes one of Soap & Glory's most wonderful products and a personal favourite of mine; The Righteous Butter. I might have bought 3 (it would have been rude not to in the 3 for 2) to give as little gifts to friends this Christmas.
When it comes to Christmas gifting, This Works is a brand that I always gravitate towards and this Calm Kiss hanging decoration includes two 5ml bottles of their bestselling Deep Sleep Stress Less. If you're looking to get a relaxing and good night's sleep I would definitely recommend trying one of these wonderful rollerballs so to get two of them, encased in a fantastic hanging decoration, for £10 is pretty brilliant.
And if you love your lip products, the Mandara Spa Shimmering Lip Butter Treats Bauble* will be right up your street. Containing two shimmer lip butters for £7, this tin bauble is simply sumptuous and even comes with matching tissue paper inside to add that luxurious touch.
When it comes to decorations for the Christmas tree that contain nail polishes nobody does it better than Mavala. Every year they bring out a whole range of gorgeous glitters and special effect polishes displayed perfectly inside their little clear plastic baubles. This one, including the Magic Snow polish, just looks so festive and when each of them are only £5 you'll find yourself wanting to decorate the entire tree in Mavala baubles, particularly if you're a nail polish-a-holic like me.
Talk about a beauty bargain! This gorgeous glittery bauble comes complete with a 5ml bottle of GHOST The Fragrance for just £5. It's such a beautiful bauble that I'm already looking forward to hanging again next year and it's also a great way to try out the GHOST scent without having to invest very much at all.
Burt's Bees have two different tree decorations on offer this year. The Classic Pomegranate Hand and Lip Tree Decoration* (on the left) and the Classic Beeswax Hand and Lip Tree Decoration* (on the right). Both include a replenishing lip balm and a mini hand salve and the Pomegranate one is £6.99 whilst the Beeswax edition is £4.90 for some reason. They're also such good quality, being made of metal and I absolutely adore the snowflake design, in trademark Burt's Bees colours of course.
A cult beauty favourite that I've wanted to try for quite some time is the Caudalie Divine Oil so it was great to see the limited edition Caudalie Divine Oil Christmas Bauble hit the shops this Christmas. What really intrigues me about the Divine Oil is the fact that it's multi-purpose so I will be sure to let you know what I think of this once I've given it a try. This bauble is just £8 and really does look fantastic.
STEAMCREAM is another brand that I've wanted to try for a while now so when I saw this STEAMCREAM Moisturiser Xmas Star*, which includes a 25ml tin of the award winning moisturiser, I was definitely over the moon. It's also incredibly festive thanks to it's star design and at £7.95 it's a beauty steal.
So what do you think of the beauty Christmas decoration idea? Are there any in today's post that you would like to try or more importantly, hang on your tree? And do you have your Christmas tree up yet?
