The Christmas festivities offer the perfect opportunity to get glammed up for a season filled with parties that are the highlight of the year. Preparing for Christmas parties requires some serious thought – what outfit to wear, shoes, hairstyle and more importantly the beauty regime!
With so many beauty gift ideas for her… and him… available in the run up to Christmas, here are a few of our favourites to see you through the festive season!
Gillette Venus Razors
With 5 blades and Olay infused moisture bars, the Gillette Venus range offer a superior shave with the added reassurance of your skin being moisturised at the same time. As ladies, we all know that shaving our legs is the easiest and most pain free way to fight the fuzz, with a moisturising session when legs are dry. The Gillette Venus has that totally covered though with the moisture bars affixed to the either side of the razor head. Granted, it makes the razors look slightly odd however a clean and close shave is guaranteed, with added moisture. The Sugarberry Scented (pink) razor also helps to exfoliate at the same time too. The Gillette Venus razors are a great time saver when it comes to preparing for Christmas festivities! You can pick up the Gillette range in most Boots stores, Tesco and Amazon.
I was sent the NeoStrata Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum earlier in the year and have been so impressed with the results that it was a pleasure to feature the Foaming Glycolic Wash, the pre-starter for facial skincare routines. Available in a 100ml bottle, the resurfacing facial cleanser offers a deep cleanse and will help to illuminate your skin when paired with the Lifting Serum. Use twice daily, the Foaming Glycolic Wash if Formulated with 18% Glycolic Acid (the exfoliating agent) and 2% Lactobionic Acid to gently exfoliate and unclog congested skin. The Glycolic content is quite high so it is best not to use on sensitive skin. When used daily, you will notice a difference in skin texture, especially when grouped with NeoStrata products. You can stock up on NeoStrata products directly from their site or Amazon.
Mark Hill Magic Wand Curler
After years of straightening my hair, I felt it time to invest in a curl wand and have absolutely loved the results! Super easy to use and offering your locks a completely new look, the Mark Hill Magic Wand Curler has been a staple in my ‘getting ready’ routine. I cannot recommend the curl wand enough, just make sure you invest in heat gloves to reduce the amount of burn incidents if you are a novice user! I managed to shop around for a good deal on the curl wand and eventually purchased from Boots, although you can purchase the wand curler from Amazon.
Victoria’s Secret Body Spray
I absolutely adore the Victoria’s Secret Body Spray range, each fragrance is unique and so refreshing, the perfect size to carry in your bag for a quick refresh on the go too! Pure Seduction is my favourite and I’ve noticed it is time to stock up again. The fragrances actually last longer than expected, even when used most days! You can pick up the range directly from Victoria’s Secret, B&M stores and also on Amazon.
Gillette Razor Set
We cannot forget about the male population when discussing beauty gifts for her! Christmas wouldn’t be the same without gifting the latest Gillette Razor Gift set to the man in your life. Mach 3 technology allows for a closer, cleaner shave and is definitely one of the most superior razors available for men. The limited edition razor gift set includes one razor blade, sturdy handle and also a stand to hold your razor in place when not in use. You can purchase Gillette razors from stores such as Boots, Tesco and Amazon, which currently has a great deal on the set!
I hope this post has given you some getting ready inspiration for Christmas parties!
