You guys know I’ve been obsessed with masks recently (read more here and here) and this is one of my newest discoveries. The Matcha Madness Powdered Face Mask mask gives you the glow you need, especially in this horrendous weather. This solution is enriched with a powerful anti-oxidant rich blend of Japanese Matcha and green tea. Origins do masks well so well- this kit comes with a mask mixing bowl and a mixing tool, so you have everything you need for a spa-like treatment in the comfort of your own home. The process is incredibly stress- free, the unique, 2-in-1 tool boasts two sides that are designed to do two different jobs. The spoon measures the correct amount of the Powder Face Mask and accompanying water. The other side can be used to mix the mask together to create the creamy consistency, alongside being perfect for applying the mask to the face easily and efficiently. The most pampering set in the Gift Guide Christmas 2016, it would make a perfect gift for someone who needs to spoil themselves from time to time.
Dermalogica’s conditioning body wash, body hydrating cream and the ultimate buffing cloth work together to condition, hydrate and re-vitalise the skin. The body wash removes or eliminates dirt or impurities without stripping away your skin’s moisture. Alleviating dry and patchy areas, the cream also has an aromatic blend of Orange, lavender and green tea. The buffing cloth is perfect for hard to reach areas and also gives you the right polish. I’ve included this in the Gift Guide Christmas 2016 because it is amazing value for money and the cloth alone is worth the small price tag. During winter, this in particular helps to keep my skin feeling smooth. It achieves the cleansed and polished skin you have always longed for!
Sparkle up not just her Christmas, but her entire year with this luxurious floral printed gift set of a dry shimmering oil and a perfumed body cream. This limited edition scent has the most yummy smelling blend of Sparkling pink prosecco, precious Rose and succulent, fruity pineapple. I love love love, the Rose Pineapple Shimmer Oil, perfect to add sparkle to the skin and hair for all those Christmas and New Year parties. I have been obsessed with this gorgeous limited edition scent since I discovered it at the Crabtree & Evelyn Christmas event at the Ritz earlier this year (follow me on Instagram to see more of the events I attend on Instastories)!
It’s such a pain to get hold of the correct blusher, bronzer and highlighter, its even trickier to store them all or even worse carry them around. Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Edit Palette gives you everything you need to finish, brighten, contour and highlight your skin in a single compact. The palette contains five shades: surreal light, surreal bronze light, surreal glow, surreal effect and surreal strobe light. Formulated with Photoluminescent Technology which captures, diffuses and softens surrounding light simply to refine the appearance of the skin. It also works to brighten, highlight and contour your skin from a single compact. The Limited Edition Holiday 2016 palette that every makeup lover lusts after, get yours before they sell out! This palette makes the Gift Guide Christmas 2016 because I bought it when it was first released and have used nothing else since. The effects of this surreal pallette, the blusher, bronzer and highlighter are indeed… surreal!
Heard of fitness for the face? Nuface’s mini rose gold facial toner device and 24-karat gold primer sculpts and tones the face. The Nuface mini uses microcurrent technology delivers results and is super simple to use, its also perfectly portable making it ideal for travel. The benefits will be easy to see if used continuously for at least five minutes every day. The 24K Gel Primer Brighten is known to have anti-ageing benefits and great for achieving radiant looking skin. Oil-free, fragrance and paraben free, it is a lightweight leave-on formula. This is the ULTIMATE gift for any women who is into skincare and looking her best. I do facial exercises myself and am a big believer in exercising the facial muscles to contour and tone the face. It is actually my personal pick of the Gift Guide Christmas 2016 & would love to find it under the tree this Christmas!
Fragrance your environment in a stylish and unique way with the Maitre du Parfum tassel- one of the most exciting products I discovered from ALL the Christmas shows I attended. A tassel which you squeeze drops of your chosen perfume oil into and then display somewhere for an understated and unbelievably chic way bring fragrance to a room. It’s inexpensive, easy to refill and a perfect gift for anyone who like plush surroundings and home comforts without having a huge price tag attached. My choice of fragrance would be the gentle fragrance of Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom for a delightfully sweet scent.
Oribe’s signature dry texturising spray has the power to build incredible volume and texture, which lasts for days. Who doesn’t want fresh, big voluminous hair? I have become obsessed with Oribe of late and have posted about my love for the brand just a while back. I am especially obsessed with the dry texturising spray and think it’s a product every woman could do with in her collection- it’s a cult product for a reason. Whether you’re a lover of the product or are think of trying it for the first time, this set is great value and will have you prepared for any situation where va-va-volume is needed!
