Give the gift of great skin

Beauty products are an obvious choice when it comes to Christmas gifting. But why not go the extra mile this year and give them something which will lead to glowing, healthy skin all year round? Here are my top 5 skincare picks this year...

Crème de la Mer The Limited Edition Introductory Collection, £120.00 from
This year I’ve started a love affair with Creme de la Mer. Everything is an investment to say the least, so it’s really important that you know a product will work for you before you splurge. This set is the perfect way to get to know the range and work out which items will be best. What’s more is that they’re always exquisitely gift wrapped and come with an additional 2 samples each time.


Eve Lom The Daily Collection, £65.00 from
Featuring a little taster of all that Eve Lom has to offer, this set is just the thing for the lady or gentleman in your life that loves to take care of themselves. Containing the classic cleanser and lip balm among other items, it will be the first thing they’ll scramble to try out on Christmas morning.


Liz Earle Jan Constantine Stocking Collection, £50.00 from
Liz Earle has teamed up with British designer Jan Constantine to create this luxurious stocking, filled with classic items from the brand. In the words of Liz, you’ll be giving ‘the gift of radiance’ with this set.

Nuxe Best Seller Kit with Face Care, £34.00 from
When it comes to French pharmacy brands, my heart belongs to Nuxe. This set contains 3 of my favourite items and is a lovely alternative for the beauty beginner. Dry Oil is something of a cult classic, perfect for bath, body or hair, the rose scented micellar water is gentle and simple to use, and the Creme Fraiche provides intensive moisture for the cold winter months.


Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Beauty Set, £40.00 from
For multi-use intensive skincare, look no further than Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream. This set contains miniature versions of the wider range as well as plenty of the original formula. At this time of year, it is just the thing to quench the thirst of dry skin.
