All this week, I am going to be sharing my Christmas Gift Guides on the blog! There are so many amazing gift sets available at the moment but rather than just list everything that's out there, I am focusing on gifts that I have bought for friends and family (I hope they aren't reading!) or would love to receive myself so I hope they can provide some inspiration for those of you who have yet to start your Christmas shopping. Today, the focus is on skincare sets, which I love because they give the opportunity to try a number of products from a brand, usually for the price of one full size product.
The first is from Estée Lauder and I bought this set for myself because it contains my most repurchased skincare product: Advanced Night Repair. In the set is a 30ml bottle of the serum, a 5ml of Advanced Night Repair Eye Gel Cream and a 15ml Revitalizing Supreme+ Cream, all for the price of the serum alone. This serum works for so many skin issues - it heals, firms, plumps, hydrates, smooths and soothes the skin, with consistent use, so I think that most skincare lovers would be delighted to find this under the tree.
Next up is a set that I bought for my mother: Liz Earle 6 Piece Complete Face & Body Botanical Beauty Gift. I first introduced her to Liz Earle last Christmas and now she is utterly obsessed with the products so this was a good choice for her! It contains a limited edition Rose & Cedrat Cleanse and Polish, a 200ml tube of the original Cleanse & Polish, a 200ml bottle of Instant Boost Skin Tonic, a 50ml Skin Repair Moisturiser, a 200ml tube of Rosemary and Rock Rose Body Wash, a 200ml tube of Rosemary and Rock Rose Body Cream, 2 muslin cloths, all housed in a canvas bag. All of these products for under £60, which I think is a bargain!
I bought this Origins Mask Musts Skincare Set for my Sister In-Law. It contains three 50ml tubes of Origins masks: Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask, Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask and Original Skin Retexturizing Mask. These masks will cover all bases - fight blemishes, texture issues and nourish the skin. It also contains a headband, which is really handy! This set is a bargain at £25/€30.
Next is a set from what is probably my favourite skincare brand: Omorovicza The Moor Mud Set. This set is amazing value because it contains a full size tub of Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, which costs £48, so you're basically getting 3 other products for free. They are: a 15ml tub of Deep Cleansing Mask (review here), a 30ml Refining Facial Polisher (review here) and a mini cleansing mitt. This set would be ideal for all skin types as the products in it are gentle, yet very effective. See more in my brand focus post here. This set is sure to sell out fast so if you are interested, you can buy from Cult Beauty, Lookfantastic and SpaceNk.
Finally, I have a skincare set from a brand that I have really enjoyed exploring in the last few months - Temple Spa and it's their Skin Specialist Set. This is brilliant value at £50 for 8 deluxe sample sized products. It contains everything you need for a complete skincare regime: In The Beginning cleansing balm, Breakfast Smoothie exfoliator, Purification Deep Cleansing Mask, Toning Essence (alcohol-free), Exalt firming neck gel, Windows Of The Soul eye gel/cream, It's All Good face oil and Repose aromatherapy night cream. All of the products are housed in a stunning travel bag so this would be an ideal set for anyone who travels a lot or just somebody who needs to pamper themselves more!
