Christmas Gift Guide For Women Part 1: A Beauty And Home Focus

Christmas is slowly creeping up on us, and so if you are looking for ideas for a beauty or fragrance lover, this post is full of products that are ideal for gifts or stocking fillers.

Tolpa sebio 3-Enzyme face scrub

Tolpa is Poland’s favourite skincare brand, and now it is available in the UK too. I love the fact that the products are real skincare heroes, and yet can be bought in your local chemists (LLoyds is one of its stockists) and that it is also affordable, making it a brilliant stocking filler idea for a beauty lover.

Tolpa sebio 3-enzymes face scrub is a real hero product, and one that can be picked up for less than £10. It helps too improve the look of your skin, reducing both blocked pores and blackheads, and it also helps to cleanse the face, but with no irritation due to lack of parabens, artificial colours, SLS, silicones or paraffin oils. It also smells divine, a real fruity concoction that is so fresh and clean.

The In Bloom Collection From Earthy Nails

The In Bloom Collection from Earthy Nails is a gorgeous set of 4 nail colours that range from natural, neutral shades to a showstopping plum purple that will be just gorgeous with your Christmas day sparkle.

The nail colours are also vegan and cruelty free, with even the top being an attractive bamboo. If you know someone who wants their beauty to not only look good, but to be fair to the planet too, this is a fabulous gift idea, particularly as the colours offer high shine and longevity.

Skimono Beauty Masks| Amazon UK

A beauty mask for the hands or feet is one of life’s little luxuries, and this year Skimono has a fabulous range that would be a perfect gift for a stocking filler or as a secret Santa present. Skimono is an Award-Winning beauty mask brand specialising in luxurious, highest-grade bio-cellulose, 100% natural and biodegradable face and body masks. This year they have also exercised a paying it forward policy, contributing and donating to the frontline, matching every mask purchase with a mask donation to NHS workers alongside sending care packages to hospitals and GPS.

Their hand and face masks have the most nutritious ingredients including shea butter, aloe vera, olive oil and camomile, helping your skin to be soothed and replenished.

You can find the full range of Skimono masks at Amazon.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Range| Superdrug & Boots

Palmer’s foot care range has long been a go to when it comes to protecting and pampering your feet, and their products would be great added to a Christmas stocking or a beauty hamper.

The coconut oil formula means the smell is divine, and the recommended retail price of £4.99 means these are gifts that will appeal to beauty lovers, whilst not breaking the bank. These could be a great idea for someone who spends a lot of time on their feet, or does a lot of sports.

CosRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

A beauty product that is able to multitask is always a brilliant present to receive. CosRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask is just one of those products, as well as being an overnight mask, it can also be used as a wash off mask for mornings, or as a thin layer of moisturiser, it just depends on how much product you use.

Honey is fabulous for hydration and is so gentle for the skin that this is another hero product, and one that suits all skin types. Available online, and in store at Boots.

Gift Ideas From Eco-Able

We are all trying to be more careful, and more sustainable in our choices of gifts, whether it be home, beauty or even books. Eco-able is a one stop shop for a wide range of gift ideas that are not only beautiful or practical, but are also kind to the planet.

You can find a wide range of fabulous gifts that have been handmade with love, or created using sustainable processes that avoid the over use of single use packaging. Beauty products avoid parabens and are often vegan, meaning that they appeal to far more people.

Some of my favourite products that would make great stocking fillers include the beautifully scented lavender and tea tree soap, the super pretty reusable face wipes set, and the fabulous and fun cocktail inspired lip balms from Pura cosmetics. All these products would make great beauty stocking fillers.

SEAMS Hand Love 2

SEAMS is one of the leading brands when it comes to premium hand care. Their Couturiers Hand Cream, which I featured on my blog last year, is a total wow when it comes to transforming hand working hands. It is absorbed instantly  into the skin as it is non  greasy, and then it mends, moisturises , softens and hydrates very dry rough skin and also conditions brittle and broken nails.

This year SEAMS have put together a fabulous hand kit that is not only beautiful to look at due to the cotton bag it comes in, but will offer brilliant care for even the most damaged hands.

The kit contains:-

  • Couturiers Hand Cream 75ml
  • Artisan Hand Sanitiser – 50ml
  • Cushioned Nail File
  • 100% cotton Canvas drawstring bag

For £20 I think this is a wonderful gift idea that could be combined with the nail varnish set I featured above.

 

Sassy Shop Wax Melts

Having your home smelling beautiful and fresh definitely helps to raise your spirits and helps your wellbeing. www.sassyshopwax.com,  is a beautiful independent brand that sells the most amazing wax melts and body products designed to reinvigorate, restore and revive. 

There products are vegan and cruelty-free and come in a huge range of scents, including the rather wonderful ‘sweater weather’. If you are thinking of giving wax melts as a gift this Christmas, I would definitely recommend Sassy Shop Wax, and maybe a couple of their Christmas inspired fragrances – Snow Pixie or Northern Lights would be brilliant.

Echor Sleep End of Day Candle

Echor is a lockdown success story, a brand that was launched during lockdown with a line of luxury, science-backed products designed to help people create a relaxing evening routine and aid a restful night’s sleep. They have amassed some celebrity fans along the way (Dr Alex George as one.) as we all try to achieve that sometimes elusive perfect nights sleep.

Their End of Day candle is not only a really beautiful looking product, but one that helps you to relax and wind down at the end of a long day. It blends multiple essential oils including Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Geranium & Sweet Orange to create a beautifully relaxing fragrance that is vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly. The candle has up to 60 hours burning time, and can actually help you to feel better when you wake up due to the use of lavender.

You can find the Echor range of products here.
