Can you believe it’s only 10 days until Christmas Day? Which means if you haven’t told your parents, siblings or friends what you want – or you’ve not sorted all your gifts for others yet – you better act fast!

Need a little help? We’ve put together a bitesize list of the best luxury beauty gifts. We’ve covered haircare, makeup and skincare so, whether they’re going on your wishlist or you’re excited to treat someone else, there’s sure to be something fabulous listed below…

ghd Gold Limited Edition Hair Straightener

Is it even a Christmas wish list, if you don’t have a new pair of ghds on it? 

These Limited Edition Warm Pewter shade hair straighteners have been designed with dual-zone technology and next-generation heat sensors to give you the most perfect styling temperature of 185°C. Think smooth, sleek hair in a matter of seconds!

Heat up time is 25 seconds (with an automatic sleep mode triggered after 30 minutes of not being used), so it’s fantastic for on-the-go Glossies! The rounded barrel and floating styling plates give you snag-free styling too, and these hair straighteners arrive with a heat-resistant protective plate guard for added safety too.

As a set, this beauty buy features not only the iconic ghd gold® styler in the limited-edition warm pewter shade, it also includes a festively gorgeous emerald green velvet vanity case!

Beauty Works x Molly Mae Waver Limited Edition

Here’s to the prettiest, pink curling wand I have ever wished for! Glossies, this Beauty Works x Molly Mae Waver Limited Edition is on top of my wishlist…

This hair tool’s unique triple barrel design helps create mermaid-esq waves you only thought possible in your dreams. Not only is this millennial pink waver a must, but it also comes with eight setting clips and a cute pink comb to brush out your ‘S’ shaped waves for a more natural, voluminous look. Oh, and there’s also included a cute carry case and glove as well!

Suitable for all hair types, straight, curly, natural, extensions… It heats up in only 60 seconds! The triple-barrels are coated with ceramic, which works to ensure that your hair’s cuticles are not disturbed. So no frizz or flyaways!

If you’re a Molly-Mae fan or just a lover of princess waves, this styler needs to be at the top of your wishlist.

ELEMIS English Rose-Infused Radiance Duo Kit

ELEMIS is by far one of my favourite skincare brands, (a close second to GLOSSYBOX Skincare I’d say!). Why? Because it’s rich, lavish and effective! Therefore, it’s the epitome of luxe!

This glowing skincare set includes:

Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

My favourite ELEMIS product, EVER! This English rose cleanser starts as a balm but transforms into a magical oil when used. Melting makeup away effortlessly, it leaves skin the softest you’ll have ever felt it. Plus it gives your complexion instant hydration!

A little goes a long way too and, thanks to the rose and mimosa waxes, the fragrance of the balm will be your favourite thing too!

Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil 

English rose oleo also features in this anti-ageing, lightweight oil! Sinking into the skin in a matter of seconds, softening your complexion and focusing on unwanted lines and creases, it’s again a skincare dream!

Luxury Cleansing Cloth 

We can’t forget the perfectly soft, white cloth that works brilliantly with your new cleansing balm and doesn’t aggravate your complexion!

ESPA Mindful Traveller Collection

For all you skincare, self-care lovers that lust after jetting off whenever you can, (I’m manifesting a holiday in 2022!) this ESPA travel set is a must!

Eight products for your hair and body make up this Limited Edition set, meaning it’s perfect for any Glossy that doesn’t want to skip on their pamper routine while travelling. My favourite part (apart from the products obviously…)? The sleek, vegan leather vanity case that houses all these new products!

This ESPA set contains:

  1. Positivity Pulse Point Oil – Trust me, this works!
  2. Optimal Skin Pro-Cleanser – Leaves your complexion fresh.
  3. Optimal Skin Pro-Serum – SKin soothing with no greasy residue.
  4. Optimal Skin Pro-Moisturiser – 100% hydrating and soothing.
  5. Positivity Bath & Shower Gel – My absolute fave!
  6. Pink Hair & Scalp Mud – Your scalp will feel so clean after just one use!
  7. Purifying Shampoo – Rejuvenates your hair brilliantly.
  8. Nourishing Conditioner – Softens and nourishes your locks.

Estée Lauder Decadent Lipstick Collection

Christmas is not complete without a lipstick gift set! And, of course, the best choice is no other than the iconic Estée Lauder lipsticks!

This decadent collection, housed in an exclusive gift box, features five creamy, luxe lipsticks. Think high pigment, hydrating, soothing and long-lasting – eight hours to be exact!

I love this set as there is a shade for every occasion this holiday season too… From plum to a bold red, a versatile nude to a couple of stunning pink shades (one sweet shade and one juicy berry colour), there’s something for all tastes!

Too Faced Limited Edition Christmas in London Makeup Set

Every year, Too Faced ‘sleighs’ with their Christmas collection. And yet again, this year, the brand has not disappointed!

Inspired by London, this gift set features a festively perfect palette displaying an amazing array of  20 complimentary metallic and matte eyeshadows and four blush shades (we love the satin light golden peach, matte true pink, matte peach and satin deep rose tones!).

A Too Faced set wouldn’t be complete without a Doll-Size Better Than Sex Mascara either. Expect iconic volumising and lengthening. This mascara is not to be messed with!

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
