As I’m sure we all know by now, Christmas is just around the corner, and with it comes the hunt for those perfect presents. If there’s a beauty lover in your life who you’re struggling to buy for, then look no further for gift inspiration.
Gemstone Facial Rollers
Traditional gemstone facial rollers, usually made from either jade or rose quartz, have become especially popular recently. They have been praised for their ability to relieve stress and tension from the face, for aiding circulation and helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and any wrinkles. The Kitsch jade roller is one of the most popular on the market, at just under £20, but if you’re trying to shop on a strict budget this year, then there are also plenty of equally great, but cheaper, versions of gemstone rollers out there.
Originating from South Korea and Japan, sheet masks have become a beloved beauty staple by many, with hundreds to chose from. Any skin care fanatic would certainly love to find a sheet mask in their stocking this year. Some great ones include those by Origins, Avène, Dr. Jart, and of course those by actual South Korean and Japanese companies, such as Holika Holika.
Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish
This long-lasting nail polish by Essie makes a great stocking filler. Whilst it most likely won’t last as long as an actual gel manicure, the polish is still pretty resilient compared to most other polishes, and comes in a multitude of really pretty colours.
Lush Lip Scrub
Dry lips are a real problem for most people around this time of year, so a nice lip scrub is sure to be appreciated. Lush make a lovely vegan lip scrub that comes in a handful of delicious flavours, including honey, bubble gum, “mint julips”, and cookie dough. Perhaps the best part about these lip scrubs is that they’re actually edible! (Although maybe don’t go eating the entire pot at once).
EOS Lip Balm
If you’re planning on popping a lip scrub into someone’s stocking, then a good lip balm will of course complement it nicely, and will also be much appreciated at this time of the year. As well as being super moisturising, the EOS lip balms smell wonderful, and around Christmas time, there are usually special festive editions, and mini gift sets available.
Glossier Lash Slick Mascara
This mascara is super lovely to apply; it gives you that extra lash length and a nice natural looking curl. On top of this its water-resistant, conditioning, and the baby pink packaging is quite adorable.
Frank Original Coffee Scrub
This incredible smelling body scrub is 100% natural and vegan, and makes the skin feel dreamily soft and refreshed. The antioxidants in the coffee can also help with any scarring and the prevention of breakouts, which is definitely a nice bonus.
If you know somebody who doesn’t already have a Tangle Teezer, then definitely pop one into their stocking this year. These detangling hairbrushes are super compact, come in loads of different prints and colours, and they are nice and gentle on the hair.
These beauty and skincare products are all brilliant, and are sure to please whoever it is you’re buying for this Christmas!
