So hopefully you’re not a subscriber to my Christmas shopping method, which typically consists having to park a mile away from the local Westfield before engaging in elbow fights with my fellow last-minuters’ on the dying hours of Christmas Eve – all of which is about as much fun as accidentally stepping on a spiky Christmas tree ornament. But if you’re slightly more organised than moi, you might be in the throes of your Chrissie shopping right about now. (Or you could have been done and dusted by July, on which I would congratulate you on your superior life skills. Well done.) But if you do find yourself running out of time and need some easy pressies to grab the beauty-lovers in your life, you might want to take a peek at these pretty packs….
Benefit Sweet Tintations* $50
This is definitely one for the Bene-lover in your life (and if that’s you, it might prove a little difficult to give this one away!) A mini benetint is accompanied by its best friend benebalm, and a mini lollitint of course comes hand in hand with lollibalm. Tooo cute.
Jurlique Hand Picked Rose Duo* $49
Tried a Jurlique hand cream? Then you’ll know how delicious they are (the scent of course, I haven’t actually personally tasted them). The intense hydration minus the greasiness and the added bonus of the yummy scents make these my holy grail hand creams. Jurlique have packaged up these beauties with a matching lip balm to create a completely gorgeous stocking stuffer that’s also killer value for $$.
Alpha-H The Petite Christmas Collection* $39.95
This neat little pack from Alpha-H would be the perfect introduction to a kick-ass skincare brand for the gal (or guy!) you know who is interested in quality, effective skincare products. This pack includes my all time fave cleanser, the Balancing Cleanser (30ml), as well as the Daily Essential Moisturiser (30ml) and the Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear (15ml). A very nifty little trio indeed.
Glasshouse Fragrances On the Go Duo* – Tahaa $29.95
If I didn’t already love this pack for the too cute illustration by the fabulously talented Megan Hess, then the vanilla caramel scented candle and hand cream sealed the deal. Wayyyy too much deliciousness going on. And did I mention the bag? Amaze.
Napoleon Perdis All-Nighter Eye Collection* $55
This has got the name of the party lover in your life all over it, ideal for your gift-ee to crack open on New Years. Once their eyes are whipped into party-shape with the Long Black Mascara and Kajal Eyeliner in Vinyl, all traces will be easily removed with the Auto Pilot Duet Makeup Remover.
