Don't get caught for time for Christmas shopping!

Today we have the first of the Christmas gift guides for any early bird shoppers. Now more than ever the high street needs our support, however many of the shops may have online portals too if you are shielding. It might be prudent to start the Christmas shopping now to ensure that you get the best deals. This is something I advise every year as the sets sell out quickly.

Be it for yourself, or if you are in the mood for giving this Christmas, the Bellamianta Bella Babes Kit (€49.99 for a limited time in Boots, €130 thereafter) is the perfect set for tan lovers and the best gift or stocking filler. Packed full of Bellamianta luxury tanning favourites, with a new addition from the brand, this set has everything to help you prep, tan, and maintain your golden glow.

The Luxury Body Tanning Brush the new addition to the Bellamianta Luxury Tanning family – the Luxury Body Tanning Brush is introducing a new era of application. The super soft, flat, and densely bristled body brush is gentle against the skin. Its synthetic bristles and luxurious metal handle give the perfect amount of control when buffing in your desired products, resulting in an even application.

The brand’s cult tanning essential, the Tanning Mousse, is a firm favourite of the tanning elite. Bellamianta Luxury Tanning’s signature guide colour combined with the 60-second fast dry system means that your tan is ready to wear, it will also develop into a richer colour.

Instant Body Makeup smooths imperfections, pores, stretch marks, blemishes and evens out skin tone, while Flawless Filter is a real-life Instagram filter, making it a must-have tanning accessory. It gives instant results. The Glycolic Body Scrub is a skincare multitasker, with four per cent glycolic, and it uses a combination of rich oils, avocado and cleansing sunflower oil to soften the skin and gently exfoliate.

Bellamianta approached its Gradual Tanning Moisturiser from an innovative perspective. This formula contains natural exfoliators that guarantee an even wear-off.

The Bronzing Powder is golden flecked and finely milled powder adds subtle coverage to your skin, while the ultra-fine light-reflecting particles leave you with a diffused radiance that is perfect for every occasion. Also included in the set is the Luxury Exfoliating Glove and Luxury Velvet Tanning Mitt.

The Luna by Lisa Brush Trio (€20) caters for both the face and eyes, perfect for creating festive makeup looks. The foundation brush creates a perfect base for your makeup leaving a flawless finish. The eye paddle brush is a flat eyeshadow brush for smooth shadow application all over the eyelids. The eye blending brush is a brush to seamlessly blend out eyeshadow, giving a soft blend of colour in the crease to achieve subtle shading on your eyelids. The Luna brushes are first-class quality and wash well. It is a Cork brand to so well worth supporting.

The Skin Nerd Good Fats Cleansing Set (€60) is a soothing and hydrating duo to nurture balance and soothe dry, dehydrated, annoyed or itchy skin. PreProbiotic Cleanse is your hydrating daily cleanser and makeup remover, formulated with a pre and probiotic complex to nourish skin. It pairs perfectly with Skin Good Fats, your luxurious, ceramide-rich night cream and moisturiser. If you are seeking to hydrate, smooth, and calm skin (even delicate skin around the eyes) then this is a match made in skin soothing heaven. A lovely gift for yourself or someone you know with dry delicate skin.

If you are headed for a haircut then why not ask your salon if they stock Eleven Australia? With Giftset Trios (€42-€44) for hydration, volume, smoothing, repairing and blondes there is something for everyone. The Volume Trio is packed with natural proteins that thickens hair and provides texture like nothing else - the ultimate volume builder. Forget about frizz with the Smooth Trio, a nutrient-rich combo that fights damage and dryness leaving hair smooth and manageable. Fight brassiness, boost tones and add shine with the Blonde Trio to achieve that iconic Australian blonde.

The Repair Trio strengthens hair by rebuilding and protecting the bond structure of your locks while the Hydrate Trio is a nourishing collection designed to combat heat damage and gives dehydrated hair some TLC.

In other words, they do exactly what they say on the bottle.
