I absolutely adore reading Christmas gift guides. Mainly because I think they’re usually the first christmasy blog posts that appear on my BlogLovin’, and they always get me feeling super excited. Last year, I completed Blogmas, and published a few different gift guides (For your pet, for children, from Superdrug, etc.) and I absolutely loved creating them. This year, I’ve managed to get myself organised and split my gift haul up into three parts – skincare, general beauty and makeup. So, get your bank cards ready for The Best Christmas Skincare Gifts 2018.
I love their Flash Balm Skin Booster, so when I saw it inside the Pixi Multi-Masking Medley Kit, I had to get my hands on it. Not only does it include their Flash Balm, but it also contains their Glow Mud Mask and their T-Zone Peel Off Mask, all 15ml in size. The best part? You can either use them separately depending on what your skin needs, or treat yourself and use all three in one routine.
I think I can confidently say that Glow Tonic is in the majority of friends bathroom cupboards. It’s such a cult beauty product that it honestly shocks me when someone says the haven’t tried it out yet. Another cult product from Pixi is their Glow Mud Cleanser, designed to deeply clean the skin. This year, Pixi have combined the two products in one gift set – Pixi Skintreats Besties. Perfect for Pixi fans or those wanting to try out their most popular products.
I’ve mentioned how much I love the St. Ives Green Tea scrub before, so I was over the moon when I found the St. Ives Hello Glowing Cheeks Gift Set on the shop shelves. The Hello Glowing Cheeks fabric wash bag contains their classic Apricot Scrub, as well as their Oatmeal Scrub & Mask. Whilst I haven’t yet tried out the latter, it sounds perfect for this time of year. Winter is known to dehydrate your skin, so make sure you’re getting in all the extra moisture you can!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my before and after photos of my skin whilst using Dermalogica products. I’ve been a fan of the brand for a while now, but now I don’t think I’ll ever stop using their products. For those wanting to trial out some of their products, the Dermalogica Daily Glow Duo would be absolutely perfect. Or, if you’re someone who travels a lot, the handy travel sized products make it super easy to carry around with you. Don’t worry if the products inside the kit don’t take your fancy. Dermalogica has a huge range of kits this year, from their Transform By Day, Glow By Night Set, to their Ultimate Cleanse And Glow Trio.
Despite this not being a gift set, I couldn’t not include it in this post. Recently, Dermalogica have recently improved their formula of the well loved Skin Smoothing Cream. Formulated with Active Hydramesh Technology™, it infuses the skin with 48 hours worth of continuous hydration. Goodbye dry, dehydrated skin!
