Christmas shopping can be stressful, especially If you’ve got no idea what to buy someone! In fact, the stress of 2020 is enough without having to think of present ideas.

We have categorised our favourite gift ideas for you that we hope will make that process a bit easier. 

Don’t forget to forward this guide on to the men in your life whom always need a helping nudge in the right direction! 

Gifts Under £20

Reusable makeup pads £9

Investing in some reusable makeup pads is not only a great way to cut down on waste but also a cheaper alternative to buying cotton pads or whatever you use to cleanse off your makeup everyday. Our reusable pads come in packs of three, we recommend buying enough to last you a week so you have a fresh one every day. We recommend washing in a delicates bag. 

Vita Liberata Gradual Tanning lotion  £15

Winter is upon us and that means those lockdown 1.0 tans are sadly fading! Vita Liberata Gradual Tanning Lotion is easy to apply, long-lasting and of course, natural-looking. This product includes hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin whilst giving it a lovely glow. You’re able to use this product daily to achieve a darker colour. 

Rose & Caramel Fake Tan Removers from £19.99

Fake tanning can seem like a headache when it comes to thinking about removing it, Rose & Caramel’s fake tan removing shower gel makes the process simple! 

Simply lather the gel onto your body before getting in the shower, wait two minutes and then jump in with the tan removing gloves on to rub away the tan.

Nouveau Lash and Brow conditioner £19.99

This lash product is a favourite among our clients for LVL, Classic lashes and even Brow Sculpt! The formula contains a blend of multi-vitamins and conditioning actives to help encourage growth and restore condition to treated brows or lashes.

You’re able to use this product daily, and even underneath mascara to protect your lashes from everyday pollutants. 

Gifts Under £30

Medik8 Clear Skin Discovery Kit £25

If you’ve been thinking about trying out Medik8 for a while, these sets are perfect! This set in-particular includes a Clarifying foam cleanser, Blemish SOS to put directly onto a spot, as well as a Balance Moisturiser, an oil-free moisturiser. 

This kit contains a wealth of good quality ingredients in its product formulations. Ingredients include Niacinamide, a soothing anti-inflammatory  that quickly reduces redness and irritation surrounding the blemish, while preventing blocked pores. As well as Salicylic Acid, to slow and prevent the production of sebum, and Mandelic Acid, well known for aiding inflammatory acne. 

Vita Liberata tanning kit 2 £30

This kit has to be the bargain of the year! It includes best-seller Vita Liberata’s 10-minute tan, the ultimate tan for those with busy lives, alongside the Vita Liberata Fabulous Tanning mist, both in full-sized bottles. The 10 minute Tan alone is £29.95! Accompanying them is a Vita Liberata Tanning mitt, as well as a mini Body Blur and bag. 

Vita Liberata is known for being organic and odour free, as well as including hyaluronic acid in their formulations, making the tan gradually fade evenly. 

Medik8 Retinol 3TR £29

Medik8’s Retinol 3TR is a great starting point for the Vitamin A beginner. Vitamin A has many different pathways, different products have varying strengths and it can be overwhelming when first exploring. Retinol can be seen as the middle ground in Vitamin A, it is stronger than Retinyl Palmitate (found it lots of low prices Vitamin A products), and slightly weaker than Retinal which is found in Crystal Retinal. The stronger the Vitamin A, the more effective it is on skin. That being said we always recommend to start with a low dose of Vitamin A and work your way up. Retinol 3TR is the perfect starting point for that!

Medik8 Blemish Control Pads £27

Lots of us seem to be suffering with “Maskne”, acne caused by mask-wearing. Don’t let this be a reason not to wear a mask! Instead, improve that skincare routine and implement something worthwhile that will tackle the breakouts effectively.

Medik8’s Blemish Control Pads are pre-soaked in a clarifying maximum strength salicylic acid serum, Blemish Control Pads dissolve oil and dirt from deep within the pore to purify problem complexions. A perfect stocking filler for those who are non-stop complaining about their skin!
