Last Minute Gift Ideas For Beauty Lovers
It's official; there's only ten (YES TEN!) days left until Christmas Day and if you haven't finished or even started your Christmas shopping yet, I'm here to help. If you're buying for someone who likes their beauty products, then this is the Christmas gift guide for you! And with ten days to go, there's still plenty of time for you to order and receive your gifts well in advance of December 25th.
So let's not waste any time and get right into it;
As I've mentioned in previous gift guides, gift sets are one of the best ways to gift beauty and fragrance at this time of year and I really love the fact that many brands do exclusives, ones that you'll only find during the festive period, as well as many of them being great value for money.
When it comes to skincare nugg have got you covered. Their Winter Glow Kit* includes six face masks, all of which come packaged in this handy little tube and if you're looking for the perfect skincare stocking filler or Secret Santa present, their Christmas Stocking Duo* is the one to buy. Dermalogica also have some fantastic festive gift sets, including this incredible Power Rescue Masque Trio*. You get three of their best masques (the Charcoal Rescue masque, the MultiVitamin Power Recovery Mask and the Skin Hydrating Mask), which would ordinarily amount to £60 for almost £20 less and in a snazzy Christmas gift box.
And if skincare is their thing, they simply need the Magnitone BareFaced Cleansing Brush*! If you buy one thing to transform your skincare routine, this year this is it. I've raved about Magnitone's cleansing brushes in the past and for good reason. And how stunning is this rose quartz edition? You'll also find it in precious gold, if pink's not their thing. And Look Fantastic currently have it down from £70 to £50 on their site so I'd be sure to act fast on that kind of offer!
If the person you're buying for this year loves their makeup brushes or is looking to finally build up a collection of great ones, then you must check out Makeup Revolution's limited edition Iconic Nudes Brush Collection and Real Technique's Bold Metals Collection Spotlight Essentials set. The quality of both are out of this world and they're also really budget friendly too, which is always a bonus. As is the fact that both come in easy to wrap boxes.
If lips are more their thing (aka. have you heard them mention Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits this year?), then here are my top picks for Christmas gifts this year;
Benefit's Kissy Missy set is one of the best out there at the moment as it includes their brand new They're Real! Double The Lip products and minis of the iconic Benetint and Lolitints. And you can't go wrong with Burt's Bees. Their gingerbread lip balm is to die for and their Endless Shine trio* would work well for a whole host of different people. Talking of lip gloss, Seventeen always come out with really great gifts at Christmas (see my The Best Makeup Palettes To Buy This Christmas post for more evidence of this) and their Sparkle + Shine collection would make a great stocking filler, whether you keep it as one gift or separate the lip glosses into separate stockings and present piles.
And who wouldn't want to hang one of Too Faced's spectacular Melted liquified long wearing lipsticks on their Christmas tree? I love the little Christmas decorations that they release each year and this berry shade is absolutely gorgeous on.
When it comes to bath and body, both Soap & Glory and Bayliss & Harding are always a safe bet! I'm a big fan of basically Soap & Glory's entire Christmas collection but this Pink Pamper set* has to be one of my favourites, as it has everything you need plus more. And Bayliss & Harding's festive sets from Well pharmacy always go down well too. I love the design of their cracker set this year!
Last but not least, I couldn't not include these brilliant Christmas cards from Jolly Awesome! I also now can't get 'All The Jingle Ladies' out of my head. Hehe.
Have you left your Christmas shopping last minute? What do you think of my picks in today's gift guide? And are any of these sets/brands on your Christmas list this year?
