Gift Guide To The Best Skincare Gifts

I absolutely adore Christmas and top of my Christmas list is skincare, bath care and pyjamas, there is a theme can you tell. I loved putting together what I think are some of the best gifts to give this Christmas, here is my round up from a skincare experts perspective.

Murad Christmas

I am huge fan of Murad, I only took a deep dive into their skincare in 2020 and I can confirm the formulations are created with expertise, a real consideration for the skin and backed up with clinically proven results. I have picked the two that caught my attention, both with incredible savings but always a skin expert I was drawn to the products your skin is going to love.

Murad Love at First Bright

This would be a great gift for you and I suggest you give your family or a partner a little nudge if you’re wanting to achieve a brighter complexion and target uneven skin tone and pigmentation. Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of the dark spots in 6 weeks. You also get the Murad Essential C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30, Essential C Cleanser and the Vita C Glycolic Brightening serum.

Murad You Dew You

Murad are also offering great stocking fillers, friend gifts or even teacher gifts. You know how much I go on about hydration, Murad have cleverly combined the perfect duo of AHA & BHA to create an Exfoliating cleanser and the brilliant Nutrient Charged Water Gel which combines peptides with minerals and vitamins to intensively hydrate in the lightest texture. I always think gifting hydration is a fail safe option as everyone needs hydration in their skin.

Elemis Travel Essentials For Him

There are two times in the year that it’s the law to buy the man in your life skincare and Christmas is one of them, especially if you know they are pinching other people’s skincare, including yours. This is truly the ultimate men’s skincare collections as Elemis have thought of everything including Dynamic Resurfacing Pads (which transforms a guys skin), Deep Cleanse Facial Wash, Pro Collagen Marine Cream, Skin Soothe Shave Gel, Sharp Shower Body Wash Instant Refreshing Gel and a gorgeous teal edge clear wash bag that I am sure you could sneakily keep.

Sunday Riley Retinol + Repeat

For those wanting to dip their toe into some serious skincare and see the visible results you can achieve with retinol this is brilliantly priced at £25. I can think of a handful of my friends that would love this.

Sunday Riley Power Couple

I have also spotted they also do the Power Couple (also £25) which includes Good Genes and Luna Oil. This is a fantastic combination of AHA’s in the Good Genes which is an overnight resurfacing renewing treatment and on nights you’re not revealing a smoother brighter skin you can use Luna Oil to stimulate the collagen.

Sunday Riley Superstars Kit vol.2

This is the ultimate Sunday Riley skincare collection, if you want hard working, visible results and is  also the best value collection and includes one of my favourite eye creams. I am using Auto Correct every morning at the time of writing this, it promises to deliver brighter and more lifted eyes, its amazing for dark circles and puffiness. The collections also includes Good Genes your overnight peel, C.E.O Serum which uses THD a brilliant stable form of vitamin c and A+ Hight Retinoid Serum which I can’t recommend enough.

Starting with cleansing it includes their Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Mist which is divine, Vitamin C Repair Serum, Wonder Eye Cream, Moisture Rich Face Cream, Congested Skin Serum for any individual breakouts and the Beauty Sleep Hyaluronic Acid Mist.

Balance Me Beauty Sleep Routine

I did also spot they had a gorgeous Beauty Sleep Routine, I think this is the best part of the day for me, I like to do my skincare, take my time, relax and watch TV in bed and if that can be as early as possible I am in heaven. This set includes the brilliant CBD infused Sleeping mist that you spray on the neck and décolleté to plump up lines and wrinkles as it also contains hyaluronic acid. Also in the collections is their gorgeous hand cream and Wonder Eye Cream which are perfect for being kept by the bedside table and then it reminds you to apply them every evening before you drift off to sleep.

Bon Voyage Discovery Box

I love discovery boxes, they are like a going to a buffet and sampling all the foods you may not have tried. This discovery box is something I would give my friends that are skincare junkies like me. Its like a treasure chest full of skincare goodies from self-tanning with Isle of Paradise, masks and exfoliators with Sand & Sky, Eyeko Mascara, lip gloss from Iredible, under eye patches from Patchology, Vitamin C from Balance Me, Cleansing with Alpha H and also the Egyptian Magic all purpose cream.

Seoulista Two to Twinkle

Probably one of my favourite sheet masks and the risk you face giving anybody these as a Christmas present is that they could just sneak off upstairs on Christmas day and give themselves a little facial. With 25ml worth of serum in each sachet it’s no wonder they are seriously saturated, can you imagine ever putting 25ml of your serum on in one go? You get two masks and a Magic Cleanse. They two choices Cleanse & Bright or Cleanse & Hydrate.
