It’s Christmas Eve Eve and I decided it might be a good idea to post some last minute gift ideas. Although you’ve missed last minute delivery, most of the products can be picked up in town and the local shopping center. The suggestions are a mix of products I’ve been loving this year and some other suggestions that I think would make perfect last minute gifts for your loved ones. I know everyone has a range of different budgets for Christmas, so thought I would split the post into gifts both under and above £50.
Skincare gifts under £50
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate (£20) – A multi purpose product which can be used as a moisturiser, primer, cleanser or face mask. Can be picked up from most Boots and SpaceNK.
Egyptian Magic Cream (£29) – Another multi purpose moisturiser which can be used as part of your skincare regime (I personally use it under my eyes) and also on your hair, body and basically anywhere! Lots of people swear by it and have recently reviewed it in one of my previous post. Can be picked up from most Costco and Boots. Also I’ve seen it in Selfridges & Liberty!
Lancome Gel Eclat (£22.50) – A foaming cleanser that penetrates deep into the skin, it’s also great for all skin types! Can be found the cheapest in John Lewis and for around £23 in most other beauty retailers.
Lancome Energie De Vie Overnight Sleeping Mask (£45) – Replenishes the skin and instantly breaks into water droplets to increase skin moisture in 10 minutes Waking up in the morning never felt so fresh! Again, cheapest can be found in John Lewis, and most Boots and other beauty retailers.
Skincare gifts over £50
Dermalogica Phyto Oil (£62) – This oil absorbs into the skin quickly and helps to hydrate and provide multiple benefits to the skin. Can be used as part of your skincare regime or to help provide a dewy glow to the skin under or layered with foundation. Can be found at Liberty London, John Lewis and some local hairdressers (if you’re in Essex, Vanialla Rooms sell it!).
Makeup gifts under £50
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (£39) – If they love eyeshadow, you NEED to get this palette for them. Highly pigmented, great colour range and smells like chocolate (WINNING!). Can be found at most Debenham’s and also in Selfridges. OR, if you want a dupe which is a lot cheaper, get yourself to Superdrug and find the Makeup Revolution Chocolate Bar Palette.
Benefit Rockitude Set (£25.50) – Which includes a lip and check tint, high beam illuminator, Rockateur blusher and lip gloss in Rockateur. Can be found in Boots, John Lewis, House of Fraser and Debenhams.
Makeup gifts over £50
Hourglass Ambient Light Palette (£69) – The most luxurious present for makeup lovers. I’ve fallen in love with this palette over the last couple of months and obviously the packaging is also beautiful. Can be found in some John Lewis’, SpaceNK, Selfridges and Liberty London.
