It can’t be a bad thing that so many beauty brands are offering such a wide range of amazing products. It does however, make life a little more difficult for those on the hunt for the perfect gift for the beauty lover in their life. Just ask my partner, who now requests my own comprehensive wishlist before even considering tackling any beauty halls, or even the local Boots.
Who better to ask for gifting advice from than a whole team of beauty bloggers? I’ve teamed up with some of my favourites to give you an idea about whats at the top of our own Christmas lists, so if you’re looking for beauty gifting inspiration, then look no further!

I only recently wrote my first ever Product Empties post and I’m not quite sure how I’ve managed to get through enough products to already be writing another one. It seems that sometimes everything just decides to give up the ghost at the same time and the last couple of weeks have definitely been an example. I guess it’s pretty lucky that I keep plenty of beauty backups for this exact reason, eh? The following are the products I’ve used up over the last couple of months and what I think of each.
I’ve always had a love of skincare and have been wanting to share my whole routine for a while now. Despite sharing snippets of products via reviews or over on Instagram, there’s something so satisfying about being content in a whole routine. Finding products that work individually as well as successfully complimenting each other is something that takes time, but I’m confident that I’ve managed it. My morning routine is simpler than it’s evening counterpart as I tend to be more limited on time, so I felt it fitting to share first.
Ever since my high-school days, I’ve been on a seemingly never-ending mission to make my teeth as white as possible. There’s something about getting four teeth removed to then endure the emotional and physical pain of having braces that made me desperate to emphasise my new smile. Over the years, I’ve tried what feels like hundreds of dental products, from tooth whitening gel to a toothbrush that cost more than my Mulberry purse. After much trial and error, I feel as though I finally have a dental routine which really works.
I’ve never had a problem sticking to a typical skincare routine. I religiously follow one and even on the latest of nights I follow a simplified version of it to avoid blemishes or problems with my skin. What I’m not so good at, is remembering to use additional beauty products. A couple of months ago I figured that in order to tackle this, I should incorporate a second step to my evening beauty routine, involving all of those products I tend to forget. The following is a list of things that I make sure to keep in my bedside table so that they’re handy and ready to use right before bed.
Although there are certain aspects of Autumn and Winter that I’m looking forward to, none of them quite make up for the bitter cold of the UK throughout them. I’m one of those people that seems to have a slightly cooler body temperature than the average person, so Summer is my season. If I’m honest with you, some of it’s superficial; I look better with sun-kissed hair and a tan. I’m not quite ready yet to say goodbye to good lighting and pretty dresses in favour of frizzy, hood hair and six layers of clothing. At this time of year it’s for that reason that I make every attempt to extend Summer as much as possible within my beauty routine, and any other way I can too!
The closest thing I have to an addiction is the inability to stop buying and agreeing to test out new beauty products. I love opening fresh new makeup and trying out skincare that I’ve not used before. For this reason, my drawers are quite literally overflowing with products. There’s a reason you rarely see ‘product empties’ posts from me, and it’s because I never end up actually emptying anything!
‘I’m a beauty blogger’ …
My go-to justification for continuing to buy makeup and skin care products, despite having enough at home to open a small store of my own. My beauty posts are typically reviews or recommendations but today I thought I’d share something a little different.
