Top 10 Beauty Gifts

The festive season is already upon us in terms of everyone scrambling for gift ideas and options. One thing I’m noticing, is many are preparing earlier in case we are landed with more restrictions. I have put together some gorgeous ideas and something for everyone, that can be delivered straight to your door and won’t break the bank! All of these would be great to have a little pamper sesh for yourself too!

Hand cream

I’m starting with this because not only is it a fail-safe gift and a handy one at that (I love being gifted a hand cream) with the pandemic at a high, most of our hands are really in need of a good one! Personally, the skin on my hands is so fragile so I’ll be gifting to myself too!

Hand mask

Following on from the above, a great gift or addition to a gift like a stocking filler are these hand masks.  A lot of the time we don’t have much time throughout the day to be moisturising between sanitising so going to bed with this or leaving it on while you soak is a great way to get the moisture back in and treat les mains!

Fake tan kit

If you are on the Paler side and like to still have a tan in winter or just a subtle glow, this is for you!

With the amount of tan brands on the market, I still think it’s hard to beat the original St. Tropez! One of the most natural false tans out there, this starter kit is sure to have you glowing and radiant in the easiest steps! I don’t think I’ve ever had streaks or a bad fade with this and even wore it for my wedding!
