For everyone, Christmas this year will be like no other. We may not be able to enjoy socialising with friends like we usually would, so why not show someone you’re thinking of them with a thoughtful present?

If you’re on the lookout for a beautiful stocking filler, then these silk scrunchies from Silk Works London are ideal.
The silk scrunchie has exploded onto the market in recent years, reinventing the classic 90s trend. They might sound like an ultraluxe addition to your haircare routine, but they come with a host of benefits that prove they’re worth the hype.

When it comes to versatile make-up, NUDESTIX is always front of the line. Hand-picked by the brand’s co-founder, Frankel has curated six products that can be used to create an effortless, smokey look.

As we all spend more time at home, give the gift of this stunning Winter Spice Diffuser from ESPA. This limited-edition scent will transform your home on cold, dark nights with notes of sweet orange, cinnamon and ginger for a warming, inviting aroma.
Who wouldn’t say no to this lip gloss trio from Too Faced? Full of shine and shimmer, the non-sticky formula packs a punch, delivering glossy and volumized lips. All three shades are extremely wearable and designed to suit every skin tone. The combination of sheen and shimmering light reflecting hues are perfect for giving the impression of a fuller pout.
With ever changing Covid restrictions, we’ve all had to adapt our usual self-care habits this year, and for some that might mean those regular facials at the salon. For glowing skin at home, BeGlow’s Facial Toning and Cleansing Device hits the spot.
We’ve all heard the debate over the effectiveness of bristle brushes, leading skincare companies to switch for smoother silicone heads for a gentler cleanse that still guarantees a deep clean. BeGlow’s offering goes one step further and combines silicone cleansing with micro-electronic technology for facial lifting.
The dual-ended ergonomic design comes with a removable silicone head on one end, making it a dream to clean whilst ensuring it won’t lose its effectiveness when you replace it each year. On the other end, the titanium plate uses microcurrent contouring technology to mimic the effects of an expert facial, working to reduce fine lines and rebuild facial contour.
It fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, and the curved edges mean a more uniform coverage of your face as it glides across the skin. Use as part of your morning and evening skincare routine for your best skin yet.
This travel-sized palette is perfect for on the go. Featuring two powder blushers and two powder highlighters, you can layer together or wear individually to add a pop of colour. Packaged in a gorgeous black and gold compact, it’s vegan and cruelty free too.
Brand new for Christmas is the Pixi Multi-Moisturising Gift Set containing three of their most popular moisturisers. Each has different benefits from the Phenomenal Gel which works to balance skin’s pH and the Retinol Jasmine Lotion formulated with Vitamin A to refresh skin. This is a perfect way to test out each travel-sized mini before splurging on the full-sized product.
