Christmas Gift Guide: Hair and Body

I can't quite believe it, but this is my final gift guide post! This post focuses on Hair and Body gifts, but you can also check out my make-up guide here and skincare guide here, as well as a look at my annual 12 Gifts of Christmas posts here. Moroccanoil have some really lovely gift sets this year, with the big three consisting of a full-sized shampoo and conditioner plus a dinky (but good-sized!) bottle of the cult Moroccanoil Oil.  I h[...]

Christmas Gift Guide: Skincare

Following on from my previous Christmas Gift Guide featuring makeup, here's the skincare post! I've found some lovely little sets spanning various budgets, so hopefully there's a little something for everyone. The Burt's Bees Face Essentials Gift Set is pretty much as it sounds, a gorgeous set of four key Burt's Bee facial products, presented in an easy-to-wrap envelope-style box.  It's also contains my favourite Coconut & Pear Lip Bal[...]

OPI Nutcracker Collection

With just a few more days to go until Christmas Day arrives, some of you might not be feeling the Christmas Cheer; hopefully this gorgeous collection, a collaboration between Disney's The Nutcracker and OPI, will change that, as this is such a beautifully festive edit of colours that just looking at it makes me feel Christmassy! I'm also so impressed by how OPI collections are interpreted, as they're always so enticing and full of colour, w[...]

Christmas Gift Guide: Makeup

I have now completed my 12 Gifts of Christmas series for 2018 (find a full list here) which mostly focuses on slightly more luxury gift sets.  With that in mind, I've got a round-up of makeup, skincare and hair and body bits that didn't make the main list but are still fabulous, many of which are a lot more budget-friendly too.  I'm kicking off this mini series with a look at some fab makeup gift sets: I've literally just posted about Rev[...]

All the Christmas Joy from Revolution Beauty

For the One Who Deserves a bit of Charlotte Tilbury

I've really enjoyed putting together my 12 Gifts of Christmas series this year, as I've been so careful with selecting which products to include to hopefully give you a few ideas.  I think most of us can agree that I've saved the best 'til last, as are there really any beauty lovers who would open a Charlotte Tilbury gift and not be absolutely thrilled? The Stars in Your Eyes Palette has, predictably, generated a lot of excitement as there[...]

For Someone Who Deserves a Real Pampering Treat

There are some amazing Emma Hardie gift sets this year, with some great savings to be found, so if you're an Emma Hardie fan then now is a great time to stock up.  As it's Christmas (did you know that...?) it's also the perfect time to treat someone to something a bit special, such as the Emma Hardie Instant Radiance Kit, although, if this particular kit doesn't do it for you, it's well worth seeing what else is available as there are some lovely[...]

For the Die-Hard Mask Fan

I'm pretty much referring to myself when writing "die-hard mask fan" as I really do love a good mask treatment; I think, when done right, it can be one of the best ways to address any skin issues and get skin back on the right path.  I always turn to a good masking session when my skin is playing up by either feeling excessively dry or breaking out, so obviously I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on the FOREO UFO when it launched. T[...]

For The One Who Deserves the Prettiest Makeup

Is there anything more lovely than a really pretty set of make-up? Especially when presented as a gift, as I think it's such a great way to try new products or even an entirely new range.  If you haven't heard of Decorte yet, this beautiful Holiday Coffret will definitely make you take note.  Decorte are a luxury brand that launched into the UK via Selfridges fairly recently and the collection contains some of the loveliest make-up you'll ever s[...]
