When it comes to buying for friends and family at Christmas, beauty and fashion gifts are always a winner. We've put together some wonderful guides for those who are stuck on what to buy for their loved ones in 2019, and today we've collected some of the best beauty and fashion offerings on the market!
Pout by Two Lips
If you're looking to plump up your skin and restore its hydration, then you can do no wrong with Pout, by Two Lips. Containing 95% pure Hyaluronic Acid, which penetrates deep into the skin rapidly, this gentle, non-irritating powerhouse supports the composition of skin cells, leading to healthier skin which can retain 1,000 times its weight in water.
Olverum Bath Oil
A little earlier this year, we had some Olverum Bath Oil sent over, promising a "pampering" and therapeutic" experience when just a third of a capful is added to a bath. So, on one particular stressful day, we put it to the test! The result? Pure bliss. Not only did it ease aching on overworked muscles and joints, but it revitalised dry skin and provided one of the most peaceful bathtimes we've ever experienced.
Disney Villains x Mad Beauty
Mad Beauty teamed up with Disney Villains this year to launch a range of cosmetic products, including a stunning eyeshadow palette, as well as sheet face masks and other branded products. The palette is for the daring make-up user; someone who wants to stand out from the crowd! The colours are unique, so go forth and unleash your villainous side this Christmas!
Emani Vegan Cosmetics
As used by celebrities and on the set of some of the world's most successful TV shows, Emani Vegan Cosmetics offer a wonderful range of different products that are a pleasure to the skin. Free of talc and parabens, there's a whole host of different products available, from eyeshadow to liquid foundation, all created using the finest ingredients.
Grounded Vitamin C Serum
Created using Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and plump skin, as well as 20% Vitamin C to boost collagen and brighten dark circles, this serum is completed with Aloe Vera to smooth and repair. Made to soothe, repair, moisturise and add vitality to the skin, the serum should be used at night to reveal great results in the morning.
Natural Matt 'N Stay Lips from Lavera
Made from natural, organic and cruelty-free ingredients, those looking for a matte lip look this Christmas could find their perfect match with Lavera's Natural Matt 'N Stay Lips. Available in a range of different colours, including Plum, Rose, Berry, Pink, Peach and Red, these easy-to-use, long-lasting lipsticks are perfect for those wanting to define and fill their pouts!
Skinful - Pure Marine Collagen Type 1 Peptides
With collagen accounting for between 25-35% of all the different proteins in our body, it's always a good idea to keep levels high. Unfortunately, collagen levels in your body begin to decline in our 20s, and more rapidly so once we reach our 40s and 50s.
Skinful takes the trend of taking collagen as a supplement to the next level. Virtually tasteless, it mixes without lumps (which we can account for having tried it out ourselves), into a drink or food. Whether you stir it into a black coffee and make a creamy latte, or you enjoy it as part of soup or a smoothie, or even just a glass of water, just one lump a day (19 kcals per serving) is great, even for those on low-carb and keto diets.
Colorescience Total Eye 3-In-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35
At £49, you'll be wanting something very effective if you're hoping to improve the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, as well as reducing puffiness and fine lines. Having personally tried out the Colorescience Total Eye 3-In-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35, we can happily say that this product is perfect if you've got ambitions of doing all the aforementioned things. It's easy to apply, smooth and didn't cause a problem for sensitive skin (always do a patch test on your own skin first - everyone's different!). The colour is very natural, and the formula works well as to not leave any residue underneath your eyes. Use just a little for big results!
Sleek's Creator Kit and Experimental Kit
The perfect gift for any make-up lover this Christmas comes straight from Sleek. An array of different brushes are on offer with The Creator Kit (£20), and combining those with the £25 Experimental Kit - which includes everything you need to create countless unique looks - is the perfect stocking filler, or gift to pop under the tree.
