Christmas Gift Guide: For Her

Hi Guys!,

Not too sure if this is too early for a Gift Guide or too late, But I wanted to do one as I love reading what everyone else has picked, hopefully you like mine too! This is the first Christmas Gift Guide I've done as well, after failing miserably at doing it last year haha.

 I tried to pick things that are still available as a lot of things I was going to feature sold out pretty quickly, as it was originally going to be ten gifts, not seven... Plus sorry for the awful photos, this light is so annoying, thought I had quite good photos till I uploaded them...

Clarins HydraQuench Collection - £34 HERE
Clarins do there Skincare Gift Sets every year, I picked one up last year as they are in fact the same price as buying the moisturiser on its own! So you get a free deluxe sample of the HydraQuench Cream Mask (15ml) and the HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bio Phase (15ml) Both last really long and are amazing products in my opinion. Plus you get a big wash bag that is in fact sparkly, sparkles = I need it. The HydraQuench Cream is for Normal to Dry Skin and I've been using it for three years now, the tub lasts me around a year too so it's great value for money!

It's also available in other Skincare types!

Clarins All About Lips Collection - £18 HERE
This is another gift set Clarins do each year, they change the shades round though each year and this year you get the Rouge Eclat Lipstick in Wood Rose (1.4g), Colour Quench Lip Balm in Peach Nectar (7ml), Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter in Rose Shimmer (5ml) and the Gloss Prodige in Candy (2.5ml). I have a Rouge Eclat Lipstick and I can vouch to say they're are some of the most beautiful quite moisturising lipsticks I've tried, The Instant Light Lip Perfecter is such a big hit in the beauty community and my mum is obsessed with the Colour Quench Lip Balms. I think its safe to say this is quite a hit! 

Clarins Essential Eye Palette - £35 
 You're all going to think I'm Clarins obsessed haha! But this is an amazing neutral palette, I've done a full review on it HERE. I'd say its a great one for either a neutral lover and even mum! As unlike the Naked Palette's it is quite sheer and great for everyday yet not too in your face, You can of course build them up a bit as even though they're sheer they can pack a punch with pigment if you add a little more of certain shades! It's been extremely popular in the UK and I cant find a website for it, I have seen some at counters though so It's not completely gone! 

Illamasqua Fatale Palette - £34 HERE
The complete opposite to the Clarins palette filled with neutrals has to be the Illamasqua Fatale Palette! a first for Illamasqua too as all of the shades have a slight I guess shimmer to them, unlike any Illamasqua Palette before, It includes four shades, all extremely pigmented and surprisingly work amazingly together! The four shades are Bronx, A bronzey gold, Ensnare, A redish berry, Charm, A purple violet and Mystify, A chestnut brown! the shadows last amazingly well and like most Illamasqua products are also water resistant! I'm definitely in love with this one! I'm going to put up a full review very soon hopefully!

Babyliss Thermo Ceramic Heated Rollers - £29.99 HERE
I must admit I hate hair, I cant do it, But heated rollers even a complete hair novice like me can do and I have been loving this set by Babyliss. Its so quick and easy to set the hair and just add some volume and curls! This is a great set with a kit of 15 Clips, 20 Pins, which by the way have a little built in compartment to keep them neat! and then the 20 rollers in three different sizes! It also only takes eight minutes to completely heat up and you can change the heat settings to two different settings. Great for any hair lover whether they are a hair genius or not!

Jo Malone 30ml Fragrance £39 HERE
Jo Malone is so widely loved in the Beauty World, It makes an amazing present at Christmas time, Hand wrapped in a gift box, gift bag then with added ribbons and bows! It just looks amazing! For only 30ml they are definitely high end perfumes but I think they'd make such a lovely present, as I myself wouldn't buy one for myself. They come in 20 different scents so there's bound to be one for everyone! I personally love the Wild Bluebell and a Blogger favourite has to be Pomegranate and Noir! 

Soap and Glory Get Bubbly Gift Set - £10 HERE
I couldn't do a Gift Guide and not include Soap and Glory, they always have amazing Gift Sets and this year they've done a great set of two different boxes, either The Original Pink or Fruitigo, to choose from, Including little miniatures of some of their most loved products. Bright and Bubbly Fruitigo includes Foam Call Shower and Bath Wash (75ml), One of my favourites!, Butter Yourself Body Butter (50ml), Pulp Friction Body Scrub (50ml) and Endless Glove Hand Cream and Mask (50ml), oh and a body puff! A great gift for any soap and glory lover, or just to get someone else addicted to soap and glory too haha! 

I hope you like this and I have two more in my little series of Gift Guides, For Him and Under £15, So look out for those too!
