Is it too early to mention Christmas presents?

Wednesday, 10th October, 2018 4:06pm

I have avoided mentioning the C word thus far, however, it will be upon us in no time and we know that the best things sell out quickly!

Now is the best time to stock up on skincare and perfume gifting...even if it is for yourself.

I have split my choices over a few weeks, so that I can tell you my picks for cosmetics, skincare and perfume for all budgets. I have found that gifting is great when you buy early, so that you can enjoy the nights out and avoid the rush in the run up.

First, some of my choice of skincare are Image Skincare including Age Defying Essentials (€153) which has a cleanser, hyaluronic filler and hydrating repair cream; the First Class Skincare Kit (€48.50) includes cleanser, anti-ageing serum and matte moisturiser; the Hydrate and Radiate Essentials (€121) includes cleanser, anti-ageing serum and prevention and daily ultimate protection SPF; the Balance and Brighten Essentials (€99) includes cleanser, lightening serum and moisturiser.

There’s variety in each set with every one a worthwhile purchase, depending on your preference.

Skin brand Academie has some absolute stunners:

The Parisian Radiance Box (€38) is perfect treat for anyone looking to rejuvenate their tired skin during these cold winter months. The Radiance Aqua Balm (50ml) banishes the signs of fatigue and brightens the skin and the Eye Contour Cream Dynastiane lessens the appearance of wrinkles leaving the eye area supple - amazing for revitalising tired dried out skin.

With the Parisian Youth Box (€46), no one will see all that partying catch up on you this festive season! The Nourishing Cream Sève Miracle nourishes and softens the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and it also includes the Eye Contour Cream Dynastiane.

The Derm Acte Prestige Box (€65) is the ultimate stocking filler for any skin care lover this Christmas. The Intense Age Recovery Cream fights against the signs of ageing while the Ultimate Eye Corrector is a treatment specifically formulated to correct visible signs of ageing, reducing deep and fine lines leaving the eye area firmer and smoother.

For a holiday glow, then look no further than Bellamianta. The Let It Glow Bellamianta – Ultimate Glow Getter Kit contains loads of goodies including Rapid Self-Tanning Tinted Mousse, a firm favourite of the tanning elite.

Bellamianta’s signature guide colour combined with the 60 second fast dry system means that your tan is ready to wear and will develop into a light tan after two hours, medium tan after three hours and a dark tan after more then four hours with no transfer onto clothes.

Skin Perfecting Instant Tan is ideal to wear on its own or as an addition to your Bellamianta tan. Self-Tanning Gradual Moisturiser contains natural exfoliators that guarantee an even wear. The kit also includes the Bellamianta Luxury Velvet Tanning Mitt and the Luxury Exfoliating Glove, the Luxury Tan Makeup Bag, the Travel Size Medium Lotion and the newest addition, the Triple Action Glycolic Body Scrub.

Those are the first few offerings I think are worth investing in, but as they are all released I will keep you up to date on what to watch out for!
