Christmas Gift Guide: Skincare Sets

When it comes to skincare and body care, there are a lot of brands that I like, but there are four that I have been using religiously and loving for many years now, and I am talking about Clarins, ElemisREN and Aromatherapy Associates.

It was hard to pick only one set from each but I’ve managed. Here are two sets for face and two for body.

Clarins Moisture Must-Haves REN Instant Beauty Heroes Christmas 2015

Clarins Moisture Must-Haves, £35

  • HydraQuench Cream Normal to dry skin 50 ml
  • HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase 15 ml
  • HydraQuench Cream-Mask 15 ml
  • Makeup bag

HydraQuench range is my favourite from Clarins and I have tried a lot of their products, and  it is the best time to stock up, and I always get one of their Christmas sets, great savings!

You can buy Clarins from:,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Boots,  Bergdorf GoodmanSelfridgesHarrods

REN Instant Beauty Heroes, £50

REN is another brand that I love buying from during the holidays to save some money.

  • Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask 50ml “A potent exfoliating mask formulated to renew the complexion, dramatically improve skin tone and radiance and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”
  • Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot 30ml “A gel-serum that instantly firms, lifts and plumps the skin to leave it looking dramatically smoother, tighter and more youthful. A liquid matrix of Hyaluronans supercharges the skin with firming moisture and encourages elastin synthesis to firm and remodel the skin over time.”
  • Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial 75ml “A transforming treatment that instantly revitalises and visibly rejuvenates the skin. Formulated with potent water-activated Vitamin C it will neutralise urban grey in a flash, leaving skin looking firm and glowing with renewed health and radiance.”

Christmas Gift Guide: Lip Palettes and Sets

You just can’t get wrong with a lip set or a palette when it comes to Christmas beauty presents.  And here are only some that caught my attention, there are a lot of other sets. In fact, you can see some of them here.

Here is a selection with a different price point, too.

Bobbi Brown and Clinique Christmas 2015 lip palettes Bobbi Brown University Lip Palette, $60 from Sephora

12 x 0.45 oz Lip color in Salmon, Beige, Raisin, Brown, Rose, Pink, Orange, Blackberry, Burnt Red, Red, Beige Gold, Berry Shimmer.

Handy compact palettes are a great addition to any make-up artist’s kit or any makeup lover’s collection.

Clinique Days of the Week Lipstick Gift Pack, £31.50 from Look Fantastic

This is such a cool idea – a lipstick shade for every day. The price is also amazing, you’d pay that for one high-end lippie.

New Beauty Purchases

After neglecting Instagram for months, I have finally started posting there on a regular basis. Today I had the most amazing latte in the World with whipped cream, chocolate and caramel syrup and pieces of chocolate, and I was a bit sad that I did not think of posting  a photo. Next time you know I will be taking photos of myself in the mirror.

So, if you follow me there you may have already seen this photo of some new beauty related items that I’ve bought.

Current Makeup Routine

Here is a look at my current makeup routine, and we are talking about morning routine, not a special night out or not even the weekend morning when I have time, can relax and all. During the week days, I often do my makeup in a taxi, or even  public transport. Yes, I have already learned how to apply the liner on the go. The things I do to sleep those extra 10 minutes.

I always see how people recommend that when you want to save when it comes to beauty products, it should never be a base. Ironically, my foundation is the cheapest product from the selection but it is really lovely. It gives that beautiful sheer dewy finish that is my favourite. Sadly, it seems like it has been discontinued.

And yes, there are no concealers, correctors or powders. To be honest at least 95% of the times I can’t be bothered with a concealer, I know this may sound shocking but I don’t care if I have some darkness under my eyes, in fact I am not a fan of the opposite, when I layer 3 products and it looks way too perfect. Maybe that all sounds weird but this is the way I like it. My skin is dry and the makeup last on me but when I want a powder – I go for this one.

When it comes to eyes – I love my eye makeup. I can
