Halloween done, bonfire night done… now it’s time to get excited for the best time of year, CHRISTMAS! I literally love the festive period, it’s a chance to spend time with your loved ones and a time where everyone around you can come together to celebrate.
I’ve started present planning and writing my Christmas list since ‘Christmas pay’ is less then two weeks away. I’ve been trying to find the best deals and discounts because let’s face it every little helps doesn’t it. I’ve already got a few bits and bobs in so I’m feeling rather organised.
With a family full of ladies, whom are different ages with different preferences I struggle when it comes to beauty gifts! This year I’ve decided to gather all of the best gift sets to cater for all.
1. Burts Bees stocking fillers
Burts Bees lip balms are a handbag must have! Not only are they cute and compact but they are 100% natural meaning they are the go to product for soft luscious lips ladies. They’ve released a ‘Giving comes naturally’ range this Christmas which is full of stocking fillers to the ultimate pampering treats. All sets come filled with award-winning products, wrapped with the warmest wishes from nature.
The first gift set is the Beeswax Bounty set, RRP £12.99. It contains four Burt’s Bees Lip Balm flavours which are Beeswax with Vitamin E & Peppermint, Pomegranate, Mango and Vanilla Bean.
The second gift set is the Endless Shine Trio, RRP £9.99 A trio of 100% natural Lip Shines that deliver natural, sheer colour enriched with moisturizing Apricot Wax to glide on lips for a sweet and super shiny finish. Contains Blush, Wink and Flutter shades.
2. Compact Style Tangle Teezers
I swear by a good old Tangle Teezer, I usually play it safe with the Original stylers since my hair is so thick BUT I was checking out their new site they’ve just launched this month and they’ve really opened there horizons with a few brand new ranges. They’ve been working closely with well known fashion designer Lulu Guinness on some prints on these gorgeous Compact Stylers which have been created to fit easily in your handbag. Ideal for the winter when the wind and rain hits us commuters.
3. Osmo & Joico Professional Hair Care Products
Why not get that salon smell and look at home by splashing the cash on some professional hair care products? I take pride in my hair and am always investing in the newest products on the market. As much as I love the drug store budget products that do the job it’s nice to get the salon feel at home. I have thick and wavy hair so have being using the Osmo curl enhancer spray with the Osmo curl definer after wash, they really work together to create a salon perfect ringlet finish. The spray is lightweight meaning my hair lasts longer curly and the definer eliminates my frizz. The perfect combo! You can find out about the Osmo Definer Fluid here and the Curl Spray here.
I have also been using the Joico Curl Cleansing Shampoo and the Curl Nourished Conditioner in conjunction with each other and my hair feels so full moisture and soft plus its so super shiny. The inside ingredient in the products has said to be the Triple-Oil Complex – a super-nourishing combination of Avocado, Babassu, and Camelina Oils to help inject deep moisture into each curl. AquaLastik, a cutting-edge thermal protector that uses flexible resins and deep-sea minerals to enhance curl memory and control frizz and Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex, proven to repair damage and deliver round-the-clock repair which is definitely needed in my case after years of bleaching and heat. I’ve also been applying the Curl Controlling Anti-Frizz Styler after use of the shampoo and condition to receive full curl effects.
