Best Of Beauty: Your Favourite Brands Are Celebrating With Holiday Collections And Gifts

Peace, love, joy… and beauty gifts for all.

The reason for the season: anticipated holiday makeup and gift sets. There’s no time quite like the holidays to rock glittered eyes and bright red lipstick. And with all the eggnog and sugary treats), skincare is of the essence  – see what we we did there? So this year, let the magic of Christmas bring you these favoured beauty-themed gifts, whether for your wishlist or someone special.

Jo Malone London Advent Calendar

Nothing kicks off the festivities quite like an advent calendar! You can expect Jo Malone London’s well-loved fragrances and candles tucked behind an illustration of the Jo Malone London Townhouse, all wrapped in a glittering gold bow. Among them include the Lime Basil & Mandarin Cologne, as well as some seasonal launches such as the mini Frosted Cherry & Clove Candle.

Laneige My Neon Sign Collection

Laneige has designed a collection essential for late night parties and jet-setting trips around the world. Products are the brand’s best-sellers ; Wild at Heart for makeup and Dream and Glow for skincare. We love the skincare treats which include the Water Sleeping Mask, perhaps the most popular product from Laneige to date. 

Lush Christmas Gift Sets

What makes Lush, ‘Lush’, is its handmade products. Every day, millions of the best-smelling products in the world are pressed, shaped and perfect by the brand’s compounders and sent fresh to stores around the world. Handmade means products with personality — each one is individual and not identical. To celebrate the art of products crafted with care, Lush has designed cute packages (handmade, of course) ready to be placed under the tree. Who wouldn’t love a bath bomb in their stocking?
