Everyone has that friend who’s a total beauty buff which can be both a blessing and a curse come Christmas. On the one hand, you know that they’ll love a parcel filled with pretty things – on the other, how do you know what’s actually worth the money?
That’s where TR can come in. We’ve rounded up the beauty editor approved gift guide – an accredited list of beauty goodies that are guaranteed to spark joy. Now you’ve just got the hard job of choosing which to buy…
One for the Tom Ford lovers, this gift set combines the rich sambac jasmine infused Jasmine Rouge with an equally exotic red lipstick. It’s decadent, hedonistic and seriously heady.
Sure, it’s the priciest lip balm you’ll probably ever buy but that’s also half the joy of it. It’s a gift that they’re unlikely to ever buy themselves but will treasure and use every single day.
Jo Malone’s scent of the season, Midnight Musk & Amber begins life on the skin with sparkling and fresh juniper but develops into a deeper, long-lasting fragrance with sensual amber and powdery musk.
A great little hair trio, Ouai’s Get Your Ouai Kit combines their best-selling detox shampoo with the cult leave-in conditioner and super dry shampoo.
If they’re skincare-enthused, you can’t go wrong with Advanced Night Repair. This hero set brings together minis of the cult collection – perfect for them to try and rebuy.
Featuring a long wear eyeliner, hydrating gel highlighter and shimmering nude gloss, any makeup lover is guaranteed to enjoy Marc Jacobs SS20 runway collection.
Another truly decadent present, the Augustinus Bader Body Cream is sure to bring joy on Christmas day. This rich and luxurious moisturising body cream is enriched with Bader’s unique Trigger Factor Complex (TFC8®) to strengthen the skin and reduce signs of aging and damage.
Available in 8 shades, the Posh Lipstick unites rich colour, deep moisture and soft shine with VB’s iconically sophisticated design.
Splashing out on La Mer? Why not treat them to this cult hydration duo. It contains the Revitalizing Hydrating Serum with the Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream, everything they need to boost skin hydration, leaving a healthy-looking glow.
The Feel Unique Gift Box is a real treat this year. With goodies from Sarah Chapman, Charlotte Tilbury, Oskia & Farmacy – it’s a whole lot of skincare, all for £60.
