The ultimate Christmas beauty gift sets
You can't go wrong with a beauty gift set for a Christmas gift.
Finding the perfect Christmas present can be no mean feat, but we all know a chic beauty gift set can be a fail-safe option. Plus, they’re usually easy to wrap and look substantial enough to hand over. Obviously, you can’t choose just any old gift set – for example, it’s probably not a good idea to buy a lipstick trio for a friend who rarely wears lippy – but if you know your sister/mum/best friend/ wife is always desperate for the latest make-up launch, or she’s forever in search on skincare products, there’s a beauty gift set to suit everyone.
This limited-edition set from Dior is quite literally what dreams are made of. Not only does it include a Rouge Dior lipstick with an engraved bullet and 3 refills, but they come in a Dior clutch bag with a removable lipstick holder. Perfect for party season, don’t you think?
Make-up artists dont come much more legendary than Charlotte Tilbury; with 20years in the industry, she’s a true trailblazer creating looks for some of film and fashions most iconic faces. The Pillow Talk On The Go gift set is back with a brand new selection of nude-pink-perfect icons to bring your lookall the Charlotte magic no matter where you are. Featuring a full size Eyes to Mesmerise Pillow Talk and three sized-to-travel must-haves – Pillow Talk Eyeliner, Matte Revolution Pillow Talk – Original and Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Original is the perfect beauty gift set.
Perfect for the luxury lover in your life (no judgement here if that’s yourself!), give your beauty bestie some superior skin care superheroes courtesy of La Mer’s The Glowing Hydration Duet. Combining La Mer’s Crème de la Mer and The Eye Concentrate, this duo promises to deliver the nourishing, smoothing and hydrating powers of the brand’s iconic ‘Miracle Broth’ exactly where you need it.
A must-have moisturiser that can be found in the kits of models, editors and A-listers alike, the Créme de la Mer is the very pinnacle of luxury in skin care, and is perfect for skin on the dry side that deserve only the créme de la créme. With the regenerative ‘Miracle Broth’ (powered by sustainable, hand-harvested sea kelp) and antioxidant-rich lime tea, this decadent cream soothes skin and imparts intense moisture, leaving skin feeling soft, supple and oh-so smooth.
Next comes The Eye Concentrate. Working overtime to preserve your skin’s youthfulness, The Eye Concentrate is crafted with a triple dose of the ‘Concentrated Miracle Broth’ in order to illuminate your under-eyes (take that dark circles!) and fend against future damage.
If you’re wanting to give someone the gift of fragrance, a beauty gift set is a great way to go as they can try out lots of different scents. We love this set from Jo Malone, with five opulent favourites from the Cologne Intense Collection, housed in their signature gift box.
The Ordinary knows that curation is key to an effective skin care routine but with so many amazing acids, toners, cleansers on offer, where do you start? Look no further than The Bright Set. For skin care newbies and aficionados alike, this set sets you on a course to clearer, brighter skin with just four products. Backed by science and high-performance formulas, these bestselling products are as gentle as they are effective. This four-piece set is a sure-fire way to get familiar with the renowned brand that uses concentrated, no-fuss formulas to achieve brighter, radiant skin.
Working to dissolve any impurities of the day (hello, pollution), the Squalane Cleanser is perfect for removing make up without leaving your skin feeling tight and parched — instead, the squalane helps to keep skin moisturised. Consider the Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCC a topical wake-up call for your eyes.
This serum contains a concentration of caffeine to improve the look of puffy eyes and dark circles. Those who are obsessed with the glass skin look will love the Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution for its ability to reveal radiant skin faster and quicker than a direct form of vitamin C. Lastly, the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution. If this doesn’t convince you to try a chemical exfoliator over physical, we don’t know what will. With an infusion of ginseng root and aloe vera, not only does it mildly exfoliate for clearer skin but it also soothes the skin and boosts radiance.
