Christmas 2016 Gift Guide – Festive Skincare Treats

As I have mentioned before the value of Christmas gifts sets are great, especially if it is a brand you love and use often. Below are some lovely brands that I have featured on the blog before, and one each of their fab gift sets.

Festive Skincare Treats

Murad Merry & Beautiful

Murad Merry & Beautiful

This gorgeous gift boxed collection features a selection of 3 beauty boosters to polish, plump and smooth fine lines, restore skins elasticity and give a youthful looking glow to the skin. Containing a real favourite of mine, the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (200ml) this works brilliantly at not only deep cleansing the skin, but really buffs away dull, dry, flaking looking debris and leaves a beautiful cleaned and primed surface ready for the next step of your skincare routine. Really gentle, yet thorough cleanse that I love to use 2-3 times per week. Follow on after cleansing and toning with the Rapid Collagen Infusion (15ml) which has a lovely silky/satin texture and sinks quickly into the skin without leaving any greasy residue. This is amazing at promoting healthy collagen and really gives a hydrating boost to the skin, so great for anyone with dehydrated or dry skin. Makes the skin look and feel smooth and plump. The final item is the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture (50ml). This is incredible and featured on a post I wrote a while back which I urge you to read HERE. The texture is absolutely gorgeous, partly due to the inclusion of fruit oils and Shea butter, but it is the almost immediate effect that it has on fine lines and wrinkles that never fails to amaze me. This collection is great for all skin types including sensitive, just do not over do the exfoliation.

 The total value of products included is worth £121.50 however, this collection is £60.00 direct from Murad, which is just incredible and highly recommended by me.

Benecos Natural Care Gift Set

Benecos Natural Care Gift Set

 Loved by many people because it is a Vegan Skincare collection, this Apricot and Elderflower Gift Collection is amazing Value. Containing 3 great sized body products in such an uplifting fragrance, this collection will have you bouncing out of bed in the morning ready to enjoy the Christmas festivities. The Natural apricot Shower Gel (200ml) is a favourite of mine. I just love the mouth watering apricot scent and find it so refreshing in the mornings. Containing  Organic apricot Kernel oil and elderflower extract this is beautifully moisturising on the skin and cleanses without stripping the skin of all its oils. Follow on with the same delicious scent and ingredients in the lightweight body lotion (150ml) which sinks in quickly allowing you to dress without feeling sticky, whilst leaving the skin feeling hydrated all day. Finally, also included is the great size (75ml) hand cream which also contains dandelion root extract and sunflower oil, to really nourish, dry, chapped hands and bring them back to life making them look and feel incredibly smooth.

Burt’s Bees Naturally Nourishing Wild Cherry Gift Set

Burt’s Bees Nourishing Wild Cherry Gift set

This really cute collection is perfect for gifting. Not only is the packaging fab, but it contains two really lovely products and for under £10 is a bargain! Included is the Ultimate Care Hand cream (50g) which is for anyone with super dry hands and the beautiful 100% natural Wild Cherry lip balm. The hand Cream is amazing. If you or someone you know are really struggling with dry, sore hands this winter, I would really recommend this. Containing Baobab oil – which is a super fruit full of antioxidants, this hand cream is really nourishing and soothing and hydrates in a instant. With continued use it really can transform, old looking, creapy hands. The wild Cherry Lip Balm is gorgeous!! This is a clear balm that smells absolutely divine and you will want to eat it, but please don’t! Made from beeswax and a variety of fruit oils, this is incredibly hydrating on the lips and a must have for coat pockets. Leaves a lovely clear sheen to the lips.

Burt’s Bees Gift Set

This would be the perfect gift for anyone, male or female, that works outside a lot and is constantly facing the elements or a great product for a teacher as at £9.99 its amazing value. You can purchase this set in other flavours direct from Burt’s Bees HERE.
