From their luxuriously scented candles to limited edition Privé fragrances and from beauty gifting sets to the most incredible advent calendars - Armani Beauty always comes through for the festive season on both the big gifts and the stocking fillers. If there's one thing that's always on my Christmas list, apart from chocolate of course haha, it's a fragrance to build memories upon. There's always something so special about both giving and receiving a new scent during the Holidays and Armani do some of my favourite fragrances of all time, that have equally special memories tied to their statement notes. If you've never indulged in one of the brands scents before for yourself or someone else, I'd highly recommend My Way, Rouge Malachite and Sì.
The Armani Beauty advent calendar this year is as incredible as ever, filled to the brim with both miniatures and full size products, featuring some of the brands all time best sellers. The perfect mix of luxury makeup, fragrance and skincare, both fans of Armani and those new to the brand would adore opening each door this December.
If like me you also look forward to both giving and receiving gifts that loved ones truly need, then there are some amazing limited edition haircare gift sets that would be perfect for the more practical present lover. At the top of my own list would be my daily hair care saviours that keep my brassy tones at bay and my silver locks shining - the Redken Colour Extend & Extreme ranges especially. If you're wanting to neutralise golden tones then the Blondage or Graydiant ranges are perfect for hair colours like mine or if you're looking for a shot of moisture then gifting the Extreme or All Soft ranges would the perfect thoughtful stocking fillers.
At this time of year the Redken ranges are available in limited edition gift boxes that just need the finishing touch of a bow or two or reusable pouches that double as fantastic travel companions. Not only do the gift sets equal great value on products I always have in my routine anyway, they are a great introduction for anyone who wants to make the switch to incredible Redken haircare. What better New Year resolution?!
It'll come as no surprise that when it comes to beauty goodies and presents, I'm sharing some Lumene gift sets and my favourite ranges for Christmas. Not only is that because the brand make some of my very favourite products but I know so many of you love them too as ell as loving their more accessible price point! If you've been looking for not only a luxurious gift to give but an affordable option for a loved one, then you can stop your search - these Lumene Nordic C & Nordic Hydra sets are simply fantastic.
Nordic Gift Sets
The limited edition Lumene gift sets this year are absolute must haves for both people who are new to the brand and long time adorers. The Nordic C set features products from the Glow range including the Glow Cleansing Balm, Glow Reveal Moisturiser & the incredible Glow Boost Essence and the Nordic Hydra set features the Cleansing Water, Intense Hydration Moisturiser and the brand new Probiotic Oil-cocktail. One for you and... another one for you!
PS - I also have a Look Fantastic code you can use on the below items for 20% off. Use code INTHEFROW over on the site until December 31st for discount on thousands of products!
I was lucky enough to discover Code8 Beauty last year and I've fallen head over heels for so many of their products in the time since. From their must have Radiate Balm I know you've often seen me use, to their AM to PM Lip Balm that you can find in almost every one of my handbags haha Code8 products are made to enhance the skin you're in so you can create and beautify in whichever way suits you and that also makes them the perfect versatile beauty gift too. If you've never had the chance to pick up any of their best sellers yet I'd highly recommend indulging in their Eyeshadow Palettes, their Matte Lipsticks or their Perfecting Concealer.
Code8's gorgeous ambassador Alexa Chung has released the perfect Christmas gift with the brand that also gives back to The Womanity Foundation with every purchase! Three of Alexa's most worn lipsticks that come resented in a beautiful corded vintage style jewellery box. Perfect enough to display on your bedside table and versatile enough to use the next time you travel too - unfortunately it's so special you may end up buying one for yourself too!
It's those beautiful red gift boxes with the gold labels that make me swoon every year and that always feature in gifts for both Alex and my Mama. Mama Frow adores the brands indulgent bath and shower products and Alex can't get enough of their moisturisers and face washes. Even more special at this time of year, their always joyous limited edition festive packaging pulls me in to stock up on my favourites too. If you want to treat someone to a little pamper package this year then I'd so suggest the sumptuously whipped Creme de Corps, the holy grail Midnight Recovery Concentrate and the best seller Ultra Facial Cream.
Kiehl's limited edition sets this year feature artwork by the incredible artist Maïté Franchi. With bold, graphic Christmas scenes with a traditional Kiehl's festive colour palette - a perfect addition for any special gifts this December. Not only do the sets come presented in beautiful reusable packaging but they also offer a great saving on some of the brands best selling products. And if you're quick you can also take advantage of their gift with purchase offers too!
I don't need to tell you about my love for all things L'Occitane here on the blog but I also couldn't not share some of my favourite products from them, that I'm very rarely without in my own bathroom. You'll have seen me wax lyrical about the brands bath products time and time again and that's because not only do they make any bath feel like you've treated yourself to a spa day, so many of their products have sustainable refillable options. if you're wanting to treat someone special this year I'd suggest creating a self care kit with the amazing Lavender Bath Foam, their award winning Hand Cream and anything from their sumptuous Immortelle Collection.
Limited Edition Scents
This year L'Occitane have released 3 new scents and ranges that I'm not sure you'll have the willpower to gift to other people once you get the chance to experience them! There's subtle Shea Bergamot, a new festive sparkling release of Terre de Lumière and my personal favourite the delicious Verbana Mandarin. All available in individual stocking fillers or spectacular gift sets to wow!
Every year I get so very excited abut the limited edition Dior Beauty Christmas clutch and this year might be my favourite design they've ever created. Six absolutely beautiful and iconic Dior lipsticks, presented in a luxurious and reusable Dior branded cosmetics case. This year the design features the most intricate snowflakes and magical stars interspersed with delicate CD and scripted branding. If you'd like to see more of how the lipstick bullets themselves can be interchanged or the clutch itself you can head over to my YouTube here. And if you want to invest in this collectible yourself you'll have to hurry and click here!
Pat McGrath Labs
When I think of luxurious beauty and even more so incredible makeup, there are just a few brands that come to mind and one of the best is Pat McGrath Labs. It has to be said that the brand is the epitome of high end beauty and to match that luxury price point they are luckily absolutely phenomenal quality. I've been lucky enough to try out both Pat's lip products and eyeshadow palettes and they really are second to none. The brands eyeshadow palettes in particular have a pigmentation and pay off that not many brands can truly boast. I'm a big advocate of, despite personally loving the experience of buying luxury products, a higher price point doesn't always equal a higher quality product but Pat McGrath Labs dispels that myth.
The Eyeshadow Palettes
If you were thinking of adding one of Pat's amazing products onto your Christmas wishlist this year, I'd so recommend opting for one of her out of this world eyeshadow palettes. Although they're pricey you do really get your moneys worth and I have to say every time I use them there's something about the palettes that reminds me why I so love to play with makeup. Sitting and creating with makeup is definitely such a love of mine and when you can do it with beautiful products, it's even more of a joy.
One of the many things my dry, coloured hair needs often is a boost of moisture and hydration and when it comes to helping my hair look and feel great, Kérastase and its luxe products always reach the top of my list. If you're buying for a loved one who has asked for some beautiful hair products or a little help with their coloured hair, then maybe the brands Christmas sets would be the perfect git under the tree. If you're new to the brand then I'd recommend starting with some of their miracle working hair oils like the Elixir Ultime or the Elixir Ultime Rose. Applied to the ends of wet hair it not only adds the most wow shine to hair it also offers heat protection as well as smelling like you just walked out your favourite salon every time you wash your hair!
Kérastase Gift Sets
This Christmas the brand have released full size gift sets featuring their best selling ranges in great value festive bundles. And right now over on Look Fantastic there's also 20% off the entire Kérastase brand and even a complimentary gift with purchase too! Whether you or that special someone has dry hair, long hair or coloured hair - there's a perfect range for every need.
That's right, Jimmy Choo have a line of high end beauty products and not only are they fabulous quality they also look just as stunning, making them perfect for popping in someone special's stocking this year. If like me you or a loved one have been missing your regular trips to your nail salon and you've taken to painting your own nails, then some beautiful new nail polish shades would be a gorgeous alternative to the usual suspects. Jimmy Choo nail colours are contained within the most spectacular bauble like, polish bottle and look like they would be found on the most high end of beauty vanities or hung on a Christmas tree! My favourite of the shades in the range are Coral for a classic yet vampy manicure, Burgundy which has deep purple undertones and is my go to shade this time of year or Stardust which would jazz up any shade or be just as perfect alone.
