Treat them or yourself | Beauty

After covering topics like Fashion, Lifestyle & Fragrances, I have picked few gift options from Beauty. I prefer choosing limited edition sets to be able to try more products and also make the recipient feel special that the set is holiday edition that comes in special gift packaging. On to the gift sets now :).

I recently discovered an amazing natural skincare brand – ESPA skincare. They do some really fab products that are available alone or in the sets. I tried The Balancing Collection which unfortunately went out of stock so quickly everywhere but they have some other sets available on the site which make great gift options for natural spa like skincare lovers. The Balancing collection have products made from plant extracts. Together they work to clarify, brighten, hydrate, soothe and nourish oily and combination skin.

  • Balancing Face Treatment Oil 15ml

You will read more about these on my blog later but for now definitely check their gift sets for natural skincare lovers.

If I had to gift something to my sister or Niece (both are makeup lovers), I would gift them a custom hamper to let them try products from various brands. Custom hampers can include products like Paul & Joe Sparkling Primer, Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Colours (my top recommendations are Burgundy & Capri for medium skin tones. You may love Greystone if you love browns and greys. My thoughts on formula can be read here), Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Quads (I recommend checking Dolce Vita & Vintage Vamp),  Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions palette, Stila Magnetic Eyeshadows, Huda Beauty Lip contour set, Urban Decay Mascara Duo and more.
