This year’s Christmas beauty gift sets have certainly surpassed themselves. With advent calendars packed with beauty products, limited edition packaging, pretty palettes featuring best-sellers and vanity cases filled with all of the lipstick and nail varnish you could dream of, it’s hardy surprising that some of us are a little stuck for choice this year; there is just too much to choose from! (Not that we’re complaining or anything.)
2014 has seen some of the most fabulous gift sets, and we wanted to share you with our top 6 gift sets for under £50.00; perfect for a friend at Christmas.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Christmas Edition 50ml £9.00. A cult classic and one that will earn you brownie points in the gift giving department. This cleanser will remove all stubborn party make up and keep skin feeling soft and balanced during the Christmas period.
Benefit Fun-Sized Flirts Limited Edition Gift Set £29.50. Featuring some of Benefit’s best-selling products, this kit is a great way for someone to try out the products in the range, or have travel-friendly versions of their favourites.
We are absolutely obsessed with the Laura Mercier Souffle Body Creams, (who isn’t)! So it’s hardly surprising their Body & Bath Duet- Golden Honey Musk set, £35.00 appeared on our list. A two-part gift set comprising Laura Mercier’s Golden Honey Musk Honey Bath, and Golden Honey Musk Soufflé Body Crème, this set is the perfect pampering treat and will leave skin soft, hydrated and scented with a subtle sweetness.
Bobbi Brown Mini Lip and Eye Palette £25.00. A beautiful sleek palette that can be used on-the-go to achieve the perfect party look in minutes. You can guarantee the quality will be exceptional, as with all Bobbi Brown products and the colours will suit any age and skin tone.
Penhaligon’s Women’s Fragrance Collection 5 X 5ml £35.00. If you fancy giving the gift of fragrance this year, then why not stray from the traditional designer brands and choose something unique. This Penhaligon’s set has five different options, so you can blend and create your own unique scent. The decorate tin would make a lovely dressing table accessory for the woman who has everything.
Dr.LeWinn’s complete Renunail Triple Strength nail polish collection, £28.00 is ideal for any nail varnish addict. Unlike most other nail colours, Renunail Nail Colours contain three key strengthening ingredients. Keratin, Bamboo and Calcium, which will help protect nails and promote growth. This will ensure your nails stay stronger for longer and with five colours to choose from, you will be sorted for any occasion.
