A Beauty Gift Guide

I'm back again with a gift guide and this one is all about beauty! I do love doing beauty gift guides because I love receiving beauty gifts for Christmas (as well as fluffy socks and cosy jumpers or cardigans obvs) I've chosen an array of products that I think would be perfect for any beauty lover in your life which I've personally tried and tested myself either over the past year or recently for this gift guide.




If you're looking for some decent, affordable hair straighteners for someone in your life then I can't recommend the Lily England Hair Straighteners RRP £31.99 from Amazon enough. My old hair straighteners literally went bang one day so I quickly went online and picked up some more and guess what? The Lily England ones work just as well as my old ones, if not better! AND they were a heck of a lot cheaper than my old ones. I also think they look really nice with the white and rose gold and I'm a fan of the digital, easy-to-use display too.

Another gift idea which I personally love receiving myself at Christmas is perfume which I know I've already mentioned in my previous gift guide but I just think you can't really go wrong with perfume if you know what kind of scents the person you're buying for likes or what their all time fave perfume is. I'm currently really enjoying the Calvin Klein Women (50ml)* priced at £38.99 on Fragrance Direct. Another little tip if you're buying perfume/aftershave is to look on Fragrance Direct because you can usually get them at a discounted price on their website.

I think The Body Shop Nicaraguan Coffee Intense Awakening Face Mask RRP £17 would be a fab gift because it's suitable for all skin types and it's a nice in-the-middle kind of price for a face mask. It feels luxurious on the skin as it warms up slightly and just makes your skin look more alive right after using it. I love using it in the morning if I've had a rubbish night's sleep and I feel like I need waking up a bit. It also helps to reduce the signs of fatigue and helps to clear up any impurities too.




For a body care gift set I've chosen to feature the Lavera Sweet Moments Gift Set RRP £15.95* which is a limited edition set which includes a gentle body wash and body lotion which are both scented with organic plum and vanilla - which I think is a great comforting, winter scent! It's also made with 100% natural ingredients, suitable for vegans and cruelty-free too. 



For the skincare lover in your life I've got to mention the PMD Clean Pro RQ RRP £165* because using a silicone cleansing brush has honestly been such a game changer this year. I've found that it's helped with oil control, makes me feel confident that my skin is properly cleansed and I really like the warming Rose Quartz aspect on the flip side as because it's great to use with serums to help get maximum results as well as a relaxation technique before going to bed. You can read my full review here.




Another beauty tool I've been loving over the past month or so is the Magnitone London Fuzz Off 3-in-1 Rechargeable Precision Hair Trimmer RRP £30*. The reason why I love it is because it's so easy to use and it can be used on multiple different areas as well. You can use it on your brows, lip and chin hair, stray underarm hair and even your bikini line. It comes with different attachments for each area too. It's rechargeable via USB and 1 charge = 90 minutes of use. It spins at 300 times per second so that it removes all of the fine hairs and leaves the skin soft and smooth and it's also suitable for sensitive skin types. Highly recommend!




If you're like me and trying to get people in your life to start thinking more about the planet and reducing their plastic waste then the EcoPanda Bamboo Makeup Remover Pads RRP £20.90* which are available from Amazon might be a great gift idea! The set comes with 18 bamboo pads (8cm each), a bamboo storage jar to store your clean makeup remover pads and a cute little eco-friendly laundry bag. The pads are made from high quality bamboo, hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types. They are sustainable because bamboo is not only biodegradable but it also grows up to a meter each day which makes it a great eco material. I have a review with more info available here.



The Tropic Skincare Skincare Discovery Kit RRP £28* is a great way to introduce someone to Tropic Skincare who are definitely one of my favourite brands right now. The kit contains some of their best selling skincare products in a travel-friendly size which all come in a magnetic canvas cosmetics bag. So what's in the kit? You get their Smoothing Cleanser (50ml) which can be used to melt away and remove makeup or as a standard cleanser, a Bamboo Face Cloth, Vitamin Toner (30ml) which aims to soothe your skin and refine your pores, Skin Feast Nourishing Concentrate Cream (20ml) which contains 20 plant oils and extracts to leave you with a healthy glow and their recently released Rainforest Dew (5ml) which is a super hydrating serum. 



Lastly is the lovely Burt's Bees Naturally Beautiful Gift Set RRP £17.99* which contains their Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint, one of their Lip Crayons in the shade Sedona Sands (which happens to be one of my fave lip products right now!), a Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus and their Lavender and Honey Hand Cream and they all come in a sturdy red cosmetics bag. I feel like you can't really go wrong with Burt's Bees because everyone uses lip balms and hand creams, right? So I think this set is a perfect gift for someone you're unsure what to buy for.
