Today I am turning my attention towards bath and beauty, and, more specifically, gift ideas in this area. The majority of gifts in this guide are unisex, and would work for a range of age groups and tastes.
Beauty gifts are always popular at Christmas, and look glamorous and luxurious sitting under the tree. They also take away the issues that can arise with fashion gifts, namely which size to buy, which colour etc.
Here are some ideas for beauty gifts that won’t break the bank but will look like you’ve made an effort to get something wonderful.
Urban Veda Gift Sets
Urban Veda is a gorgeous natural skincare brand that creates products that suit you based on your skin type and your ‘dosha’. If that has sparked your interest, and maybe had you thinking my what? then let me explain a little further.
Dosha is an Ayurvedic term to describe the physical and emotional tendencies within the mind and body. You can find out more about your dosha by taking part in the Urban Veda questionaire which you can find right here, and can then tailor your choices to your answers.
This Christmas Urban Veda have created a wonderful range of gift sets that look and smell wonderful and are based around you dosha and body needs. The ranges are soothing, reviving, purifying and radiance and are unisex, making them ideal for all the family. They are also certified vegan and cruelty free, which makes them a gift that could tick lots of boxes if you are looking for something both luxurious and ethical. The gift sets start at £11.99, with the ‘Body Ritual Set’ containing 3 full sized products being the hero of the range.
Urban Veda products are just wonderful – this is a range that is definitely one to watch.
Curaprox Black is White Toothpaste set
A sparkling white smile is something we all aspire to, but cosmetic dentistry may be something that is well out of our price range. Curaprox “Black Is White” toothpaste naturally strengthens and whitens teeth.
The toothpaste contains activated carbon which absorbs particles which would normally grind enamel away; preventing discolouration from caffeine, nicotine and red wine. The hydroxylapatie in Black Is White snuggles up to the tooth enamel, acting a thin film. As a result, it protects the enamel and even fills small holes, promising optimal results and glistening white teeth. It has double protection against tooth decay from the sodium fluoride and its enzymatic system and has no bleaching properties.
This Christmas Curaprox have put together a gift idea which features a lemon version of the toothpaste and a limited edition ultra soft toothbrush. At £19.95 this is a really great stocking filler.
7th Heaven Top to Toe Treats
Mio Skincare Liquid Yoga
Mio Skincare’s Liquid Yoga Bath Soak is my idea of the perfect pampering bath treat. It promises to relax, ease muscles and re-energise your body, and I can confirm it does all three, making it a wonderful pick me up for tired, aching bones.
I always have a bottle of this in my bathroom and think this is a great gift idea for a new mum, a gym or fitness body, or anyone whose idea of relaxing is to take a lovely soothing bath.
