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.”
