It is early November so forgive me for mentioning Christmas already but let’s be honest preparation is key! If you are drawing a blank when it comes to Christmas gift ideas I’ve put together a list of my favourite Beauty finds that will make any Beauty Lover’s Christmas this year!
Give the gift of Barber level haircare from home this Christmas with HEIST of London. These styling products make great stocking stuffers and are perfect for throwing in a bag to take to the gym, office or on a nice weekend away.
Matte Dust Hairstyling Powder – A medium hold product that adds lightweight volume and dry texture.
Sea Salt Spray – Adds fullness and grip with a natural matte finish.
Matte Clay – Strong and long-lasting hold with a dry matte finish. Water-soluble and easily rinses out of hair with just water.
Sugar Coated is a hair removal wax that is both gentle on the skin and the environment. This 100% natural, vegan, completely water-soluble and biodegradable product comes with eco-friendly washable, reusable strips. Sugar Coated has all your hair removal needs covered with a full-body kit available as well as target areas such as leg, facial, bikini and underarm hair. You can even use Sugar Coated on tattooed skin. Made from pure sugar syrup and water, this is an ethical brand you will love. Available from *Amazon and Feel Unique from £9.99.
I don’t think Christmas is really Christmas without a Lynx Gift Set! When it comes to Lynx – Africa is a cult classic favourited by many! The Lynx Africa 25 Year Washbag Gift Set makes the perfect gift this Christmas featuring: Africa Body Wash, Body Spray, Anti-Perspirant and a handy wash bag. RRP: £12.50 available from *Amazon.
I was first introduced to Shea Moisture products when travelling through the states. When I found out they sold in the UK, I was so happy, and I often give a selection of their products as gifts each year. My favourites include the African Water Mint & Ginger Detox Body Wash and Body Lotion. The body wash leaves your skin feeling cleansed and fresh and the body lotion leaves your skin super soft. There are no Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil or Sulphates and it is made with Fair Trade Shea Butter. Another Shea Moisture must-have is the Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Energizing Bath, Body & Massage Oil. This is a staple for anyone with dry skin and can be used in the bath as a bathing oil or rubbed directly into the skin. As with the Detox Body Wash and Lotion, there are no Sulphates, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil and no Paraffin.
For hair care, Smith England is my current fave! Not only is their packaging absolutely gorgeous BUT their products do not contain: Sulphates, Parabens, Colourants, Mineral Oils, or any Genetically Modified Ingredients! All packaging is made from a percentage of recycled plastic and the bottles are 100% recyclable after use, AND they are a brand that is fiercely against animal testing. This salon-quality haircare comes in five different ranges:
Nourish – Perfect for dry & damaged hair.
Boost – For added volume.
Gloss – To add shine.
Guardian – For colour care.
Purity – Great for soothing those with sensitive scalps.
I only recently heard about Full Spectrum Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Hair & Beauty Elixir from Blunt Beauty, but I am already a big fan. It is a dermatologically tested, food-grade formula that has a full Cannabinoid profile and nourishes the skin and the scalp. A little goes a long way, and it’s excellent as a moisturiser after showering or bathing or used on the scalp before washing. It is soothing on dry and sensitive skin and has done wonders for my dry scalp! Find out more from bluntbeauty.co RRP £45.00.
Yardley London has a fantastic array of gift sets for both men and women. Like the English Lavender Bath & Body Collection. The set includes a Yardley London’s Luxury Body Wash, Silky Smooth Body Lotion and a Nourishing Hand Cream all in a beautiful English Lavender scent. RRP £14.00.
Or the Gentleman Classic Eau de Parfum Collection which includes the Yardley London Gentleman Classic Eau de Parfum fragrance and body spray for men. RRP £14.50.

Original Shower Gel (500ml)
Original Face Scrub (125ml)
Original Moisturiser (100ml)
Original Hand Cream (75ml)
Original Natural Deodorant (75ml)

The Lavera Sweet Moments Body Gift Set is a lovely gift to share a “sweet moment” with someone special this Christmas. The set contains a Body Wash and Body Lotion in a gorgeous warming vanilla and plum scent and is Certified organic by NaTrue and vegan by the vegan society. RRP £15.95 available from www.laverauk.co.uk.
Dr.PAWPAW is a brand I often feature and a staple in my own beauty kit daily. They have a few new additions and sets that would make fantastic gifts this Christmas like their Hand Health Kit. The colder weather combined with the increased handwashing going on at the moment means that our hands need some extra TLC. Each hand kit comes with a Multi-Purpose
Antibacterial Sanitiser Spray that is vegan-friendly and with its 80% alcohol content it kills 99.9% of germs. To complement this, you also get an Original Balm which is natural, soothing and is multi-purpose. Perfect for hydrating skin or on chapped lips. £9.99 available here.
Or perhaps you’d prefer the Dr.PAWPAW Prep & Party Gift Set including a Dr.PAWPAW Scrub & Nourish pot and a 25ml Tinted Ultimate Red Balm which is perfect for lips, cheeks or eyelids to add a splash of colour. £15.00 available here.
Both sets are Vegan Approved, Cruelty-Free and have recyclable packaging.

Who doesn’t want whiter teeth? Let’s be honest achieving and then being able to maintain that perfect white smile can be a challenge and often results in affordable professional treatments at a dentist.

They have created an affordable, non-sensitive whitening kit that combines three scientifically-proven methods to achieve at least two shades whiter teeth in just one week.

Makeup brushes are such a breeding ground for bacteria which causes numerous problems such as skin irritation and spots!
