In some ways this is the easiest of the gift guides to write because there is so much choice out there. There really is something for everyone. I’m going to focus on feminine beauty products, but many of the products could be unisex. For me though Christmas isn’t Christmas without a few treats in the beauty line and I suspect I’m not the only one.
Douvall’s is a brand that I’ve discovered this Christmas. I’ve been trying out their Argan Lip and Cheek Colour Oils, which for me have a great blend of caring for your skin and adding a little colour too. They are great on lips as they keep them nicely protected against the weather and I’ve found them perfect for a daytime look. Another new favourite is their Argan Multi Balm which I now keep close at hand and it’s perfect for any dry bits which comes as part of this Argan Duo gift set.
On the electronic beauty front I’ve been impressed by Magnitone Barefaced. It’s a really cleverly packaged device and the instructions are so clear and easy to follow. There’s a lot of thought gone into the details like the magnetic charger. It’s great too that you can used it in the shower. This set comes with two brush heads: one for cleansing and the other for massaging (you can use it to apply creams).
Faith in Nature’s products are formulated from natural ingredients. Their Tea Tree Shampoo is worth a look and there’s a conditioner to go with it. They’d make good stocking fillers. Still on stocking fillers, Nelson’s have some nice products that would help lift a stocking: Nelsons arnicare® Bath & Massage Balm and Nelsons® Calendula Cream. One is great for after a busy day and the other works on soothing and nourishing your skin.
Weleda have long been one of my favourite beauty brands and I’m loving their Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream at the moment. This is another great one to slip into a stocking and will be much appreciated by anyone whose hands have to work hard.
Green People is another brand that produces consistently good products and their Anti Ageing 24 Hour Cream is no exception. It’s alcohol-free and packed with vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Maybe you’re buying for someone who likes their gifts a little bit retro, so how about a trip back to the 1960s and 70s with an Aqua Manda Gift Set. Another chance to go back in time with Babe, a hit perfume from the 1970s that has now been relaunched.
Your gift recipients will need somewhere to store all those lovely goodies, so how about this ‘I Believe in Unicorns’ make up bag from Find Me A Gift.
