Top 5 Beauty Gifts – under £50!Comments : 6 Posted in : Beauty on by : Reema Tags: beauty, Christmas, gifts, makeup, skin care
You know it’s December when the shops are packed and all you hear is the same old Christmas music everywhere you go. The scramble for gifts combined with mad shoppers, pushy sales people and an overwhelming choice is a daunting experience for many. I hope to make this a bit easy for you over the coming weeks by sharing some of my favourite gift ideas this season.
Today’s post is about my top 5 beauty buys under £50 – these will make excellent festive gifts for any beauty addict in your life – or perhaps, yourself! 😉
1. Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold – Skin Highlighter – £30
Charlotte Tilbury’s light reflecting highlighter allows you to easily sculpt cheekbones and add shimmer to other parts of your face and body. Skin illuminating highlighters are a necessity for a great party look and this bar of gold would be a delight to give (and receive!) – don’t you think? Available at Selfridges.
2. Laura Mercier Souffle Body Creme Sampler – £40
Laura Mercier make some fabulous skin care products and I love this gorgeous gift set of ultra rich body soufflés. The set includes whipped body cremes in Almond Coconut Milk, Ambre Vanille, Creme Brulee and Creme de Pistache. The cremes smell fabulous, feel luxurious and are an excellent option for anyone who enjoys daily skin pampering. Available at House of Fraser and John Lewis
3. Ciate Nails Mini Mani Month – £42
There are all sorts of beauty advent calendars in the market these days. I love this Mini Mani Month set by Ciate London. A new surprise behind each door, the mini mani month has 19 mini Paint Pots, 4 textured manicure toppers and a full size Paint Pot. A great gift for the girl who likes to do her own nails. Available at Selfridges.
4. DIOR Holiday Couture Collection Lip & Nail Palette – £48
Aptly named The Night Before Christmas, this gorgeous compact includes Creme de Rose Lip Balm, Dior Addict Extreme Lipcolour, Dior Addict Lipgloss and Nail Lacquer along with a double ended applicator. All in vibrant holiday colours making it a perfect gift for the makeup obsessed beauty! Currently, 15% off at Debenhams
5. Glossybox 6-month Gift Subscription – £50
A monthly box of beauty treats delivered to one’s doorstep – need I say more? A Glossybox subscription is the ultimate beauty gift that keeps on giving. I love my monthly boxes and recommend them highly for anyone who loves experimenting with new beauty and skin care products. You can buy this gorgeous gift plan at: www.glossybox.co.uk
I would love to receive any of these as gifts – What about you? Which one is your favourite? Feel free to like, comment, share and drop hints! 😉
