Christmas gifts that keep giving

Wednesday, 15th November, 2017 5:53pm

The Halloween decorations are long gone at this stage and even the most conservative of us have started to think about Christmas gifting. Picking out makeup can be an ordeal but sometimes skincare or a fragrance might just be what the doctor ordered.

The Yonka Sincere giftset retails at €85 but is worth €113; it contains a day and night cream in the Elastine range which is great for aging skins lacking in hydration.

Yonka Elastine Jour and Nuit are an anti-ageing duo of creams formulated with 19 essential amino acids to smooth superficial wrinkles and fine lines and help the epidermis to restore its natural elasticity. With regular use, the skin is left perfectly hydrated, nourished, and protected with a new-found vitality.

Kevin Murphy won my heart with his haircare and the stand out set from his Christmas collection is the plumping set for fine hair. Comprising of a wash, rinse and leave in spray, it all comes in a pretty pink makeup bag that is patent in finish. The shampoo will plump your hair and the conditioner won’t weigh it down. It nourishes and restores for thicker, stronger hair and smells amazing too.

The Real Techniques Multi Tech brush set is a must for makeup lovers. The Small Points set (€26.99) includes: Point S Brush - all-over shadow, concealer, contour lines, highlighter; Point XS Brush - colour correcting, concealer, crease shadow; Point XXS Brush - detailed highlighting, detailed shadow, lip blending; Point XXXS Brush - brow filling, smoky liner, smudged liner, lip detailing and more.

If you want to just gift one small product for a secret santa, then there is the Point L Brush (€14.99), which is for focused face application and blending, the Point XL Brush (€15.99) is for full face application and blending, the Point XXXL Brush (€16.99) is for neck and body application and blending while the Point Makeup Sponge (€8.99) is for detail and round base to deliver flawlessly blended results whether used damp or dry.

The Gucci Bloom giftset (€85) contains a 50ml fragrance and a handy clutch bag size fragrance pen. Capturing the spirit of the contemporary, diverse and authentic women of Gucci, Bloom is creative director Alessandro Michele's first fragrance for the house. Envisioned as a thriving garden of flowers, Bloom is created to unfold like its name. Notes of natural tuberose and jasmine leave an unexpectedly rich white floral scent on the skin.

The luxuriously packaged limited edition skincare giftset from Pestle and Mortar (€86) holds the cult favourite Pure Hyaluronic Serum and its perfect hydration partner, Hydrate Moisturiser, making it the perfect gift for any skincare fanatic. It's suitable for all skin types.

The set contains the best loved Pure Hyaluronic Serum (30ml) and the award-winning Hydrate Moisturiser (50ml) in a chic cylindrical gift box. The lightweight Pure Hyaluronic Serum is packed full of goodness and makes the skin look fresh, plump and luminous. The Hydrate Moisturiser contains a mixture of patented peptides that helps dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
