Looking for a beauty related gift or stocking filler to gift this Christmas? Here are a few of the best that we have been trialling in the run up to the festive period! Hope the inspiration helps!
Braun have an awesome range of gifts to give this Christmas, covering health and beauty for both men and women. I have totally fallen in love with the Satin-Hair 7 brush (currently £18.99 in Argos), I am still not entirely sure how it works, however the brush leaves my hair salon style smooth and I do not suffer with flyaway hair. Due to my hair being so thick, it does have a tendency to do what it wants, so the brush is certainly keeping it under control! The brush offers instant shine at the push of a button – it does light up green which is quite funky and is something that has made brushing Liv’s hair much more enjoyable!
The Braun WaterFlex shaver (currently priced at £79.99 in Argos) is a real treat for men this year. Making the whole process of shaving so much easier as the razor even be used in the shower with foam, great for time saving! The contour adaptive swivel head offers a close shave whilst still being kind to skin. A perfect gift for the man in your life, this Christmas!
As a nail varnish addict, I am loving the Star Gazer manicure sets, a perfect stocking filler this Christmas. Available in a range of colours and priced at £4 each, you are sure to find a set that will suit. The sets include a base coat, top coat and the main manicure colour, along with tip adhesives to help you guide the brush smoothly over the tip area. The Cyber and Diablo sets really do stand out and I am looking forward to my nails standing out this Christmas!
Christmas is all about the added sparkle and Warren James are certainly there to help you out in this department!

Radox gift sets are always a lovely gift to give at Christmas… you are gifting a true pamper session! The Stress Relief gift set includes 2 x 500ml large bottles of the Stress Relief and Muscle Soak bath bubbles, the perfect treat for anyone who needs to relax in a luxurious, hot, bubble bath! The set also comes with a colour changing rubber duck. Unfortunately Liv spied this a while ago and the duck has been missing in action, but for anyone who likes company in the bath, a rubber duck is the perfect companion! I have always found Radox to be kind to my skin and utterly relaxing, the fragrance of the bath soak is divine… any excuse to have a bath! The Radox Bath set is priced at £8 from Littlewoods.
Bronnley offer an amazing selection of luxurious skincare products for both men and women and their box sets are stunning! We were sent the Lemon and Neroli Hand Wash and Hand Lotion set, priced at £20. I love the book style box, it is such a wonderful gift to give and the fragrance is stunning. The hand lotion has made my hands silky and smooth – the set is a perfect complement for any bathroom. The Red Berry and Wild Blossom Soap is enriched with Shea Butter, which I am a huge fan of, to help soften the skin. The fragrance is perfect for this time of year and at £5 is a great item to add to a hamper!
Going for gold is what it is all about at Christmas, with added sparkle! Oriflame do not disappoint with their latest Giordani Gold range, the perfect make up range for this time of year. I have been using the Giordani Gold CC cream for the past few weeks and have found it to be a great foundation. Very easy to apply and smooth out, great coverage and complements my skin tone perfectly… a little added glow really does help to make me look more radiant than usual! With a high SPF of 35, this adds to the glow and makes it a great all year round cream. Priced at £8.95.
