What’s your favourite thing about Christmas? The beauty advent calendars? Buying all manner of random gifts for your boyfriend? The roast dinner? Mine’s all of the above, plus the plethora of Christmas beauty gift sets which launch in the festive run-up.
It may only be September, but it’s never too early to start that Christmas countdown (you heard it here first) – and I’m waiting with baited breath for the shops to drop gift sets galore. Not only to buy them for *all* of my friends, but to stockpile them for myself ’til we can do the whole thing all over again.
If you’ve already started putting feelers out and thinking about what you might like to add to your Christmas wish list this year (giving, of course, reigns supreme… but receiving isn’t half bad either), or you’re *super* organised and already on that Christmas shopping hype, you might like to take a peak at our edit of the best Christmas beauty gifts for 2020.
We’ve cherry-picked our very favourite new beauty products, Christmas beauty gift sets and limited edition makeup launches, along with some cracking skincare, fabulous fragrance and haircare products to boot for the beloved beauty buffs in your life. What’s more, we’ll be adding to this edit right up until Christmas eve – so when your favourite brands drop Christmas beauty collections, you’ll be the very first to know. Don’t say we don’t treat you.
To kick things off, we’ve found a Vitamin C starter bundle from Nip + Fab (apt, since Vitamin C is officially the most Googled skincare ingredient of 2020) and a chic AF rose quartz facial massage roller for bringing the spa to her home. Charlotte Tilbury’s two most recent makeup launches – the Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes Mascara and Makeup Setting Spray – make for excellent stocking fillers (or gifts-to-self so you look great while you play Santa), while Caroline Hiron’s newly-launched Skincare book will become a bible for any skincare junkie. We’ve also found a palm-print makeup bag for the beauty lover who loves to travel, an Olaplex Complete Collection haircare gift set for her softest hair ever and a Slip Sleep Set complete with silk pillowcase and eye mask. Zzz.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, or at least, it’s gearing up to be.
