You might have ticked off everyone on your Christmas list by now, but there’s still someone we bet you’ve forgotten… you! Yep, we think self-gifting is a must at this time of year. It’s so busy and can be stressful, so treat yourself to one of our amazing beauty presents just in time for the big day itself. You’ve got until 20th December for Christmas delivery, so there’s still time to browse. We’ve selected our top ten to help you choose.
Packed with beautifully moisturising formulas that’ll leave you feeling fab from top to toe, L’Occitane really delivers festive TLC with this edit. Whether you prefer Warm, Aromatic or Floral notes, there’s something here to take your fancy, and with products like the iconic L’Occitane Hand Cream, Shower Cream and more, it’s a really indulgent way to make yourself feel great in time for Christmas.
Got your Christmas make-up look sorted? No? Well, Bodyography is here with a set of dazzling liquid eyeshadows to get you glammed up. They’re weightless, so they feel great on the eye, but you’ll get an amazing colour pay-off with a chrome finish. Liquid formulas are super easy to apply – just swipe on and blend out with your finger. Finish with jet black On Point Liquid Liner Pen, and you’ll be feeling a million dollars in an instant.
With one for your bathroom and one for your handbag, this duo of They’re Real Magnet Mascaras from Benefit makes a fabulous little gift for yourself. It works to give you dramatic-looking lashes with plenty of length and volume, and the set comes presented in an adorable little stocking tin, so it’ll feel like a present sent from Santa, even though you got it for yourself!
Would it be the festive season without Elemis? We don’t think so! You might have stocked up on this collection for family and friends, but why not grab one for yourself? We love the Lime & Ginger scent for refreshing our skin and senses after a long day, making it the ultimate option for the festive period. Plus, with a full skincare routine from the Pro-Collagen range, any signs of late nights, too much champagne or over-indulgence will be forgotten!
We’ll be the first to admit we don’t wake up with much of a glow on Boxing Day… luckily, you can fake it until you feel a little more with it! Laura Geller’s iconic Spackle formulas not only help to keep your make-up in place, they’ll add a little radiance to your complexion. If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends, this could be just the ticket.
And breathe… If the season has been a little bit testing, we’ve got just the thing you need. These Aromatherapy Balms from Scentered can be popped right into your handbag so you can apply whenever you need to. So whether you need calming during the last-minute supermarket dash, energising when waking up early to get the turkey in or a little help with getting off to sleep on Christmas Eve, they’ve got it covered.
During the festive season, self-care can take a little bit of a back seat. Time seems to run away with you, and your usual beauty routine might go out the window. We love the Rejuvenating Oil from Tweak’d as a do-it-all, time-saving answer to a little yuletide pampering. Not only can you use it alone for added hydration, you can also mix it with your body cream, shampoo, conditioner and styling products, adding an extra step to your routine without taking up any extra time!
Working to deeply exfoliate dry, rough skin, this body brush is a great option for saying goodbye to post-Christmas scaliness and self-tan so you’re ready to see in the new year with smooth, soft skin. With interchangeable heads, you’ll be gifting yourself an instant glow-up with this easy-to-use tool.
We know how it is; when the excitement of the season kicks in, it can be tough to get a good night’s kip. The Hayo’u Beauty Sleep collection is here to help deliver just that – beauty sleep! With two tools and an indulgent skin oil, this set is the perfect way to help you unwind and relax after a long day of hosting, eating or partying!
Curling, dyeing, straightening, backcombing, hairspray… you name it, party season really makes our locks feel a little lack-lustre. Help them back to silky smoothness and mirror shininess with Rock & Ruddle’s luxury hairbrush. It’ll tackle tangles with ease, so you can give your tresses a real Christmas treat!
We hope you’re feeling inspired to give yourself a little treat this season, and there’s plenty more in the Beauty department to choose from. But remember, you’ve only got until 20th December to order in time for Christmas!
