What Your Girlfriend Really Wants for Christmas: High Street Beauty
Christmas is almost upon us! But it’s fair to say that this time of year can be as stressful as it is enjoyable – especially if you struggle when it comes to buying your Jane gifts. So to save you a mad Christmas Eve dash around the High Street, we’ve once again enlisted the help of the lovely ladies at Average Janes to give us some top advice on what to get your girlfriend for Christmas.
We’ve got five guides coming out over the next couple of weeks to help you solve your Christmas present dilemmas. This time round, Average Janes gives us some top advice on Beauty products to treat your girlfriend with this Christmas.
If your girlfriend is a beauty junkie, you’ll almost certainly know about it! Does she spend an age getting ready for a night out? Are your bathroom shelves packed with make-up, hair products and skincare? If so, beauty treats are a great way to go at Christmas. We do know that beauty buying is a minefield though, so we’ve picked some of our choices to suit every budget and every level of beauty enthusiast!
Ted Baker Ella Fragrance
If you want to play it safe, get your Jane some fragrance. We all usually have a favourite, so if you know it – maybe just top up her up with another bottle. But if you want to surprise her and mix things up, we love Ted Baker’s Ella fragrance. With notes of bergamot and cassis with a heart of orange blossom, jasmine and rose, it’s the ideal gift if you’ve got romance on your mind! Available over at the Ted Baker Website for a very reasonable £30.
Epionce Renewal Facial Lotion
Face creams are always a safe bet when it comes to beauty products. Every Jane uses them and they’re also the perfect gift given good quality ones can be a little on the expensive side. We think this Epionce Renewal Facial Lotion fits the bill perfectly. Quick-absorbing, the lotion is formulated to correct and protect your skin’s natural protective barrier. It penetrates the active ingredients deep into your skin cell layers helping to reverse visible signs of ageing. Available from Beauty Product Online for £77.50.
Ghost Fragrance Gift Set
But if you don’t want to risk things and cover all bases, you can’t go wrong with a gift set. We like this Fragrance Gift Set from Ghost. The set features everything from the original Ghost fragrance to six special editions, including a mini candle, travel-size edt, bath oil and body butter scented with Ghost’s seamless blend of cool elegance and unexpected warmth. The set offers top notes of lily, white rose and Indian ambrette seed with smoked incense, jasmine and sandalwood. The Ghost Fragrance Gift Set is available from Superdrug for £38.
EcoTools Make-Up Brushes
If you need a great little stocking filler, we think these EcoTools make-up brushes should do the trick. Armed with a mission to make women look beautiful on the outside and feel just as good on the inside, EcoTools brush collection is not only environmentally friendly, it’s also chic, high-quality, and affordable too. The Six Piece Starter Set includes a powder/blush, a concealer, a full shadow, a spoolie, an angled liner and a cosmetic bag, while the five piece Travel Collection comes with a powder/blush, a complexion blender, a shadow smudger, an angled liner and a cosmetic bag too. Head over to the EcoTools Website where the sets are available for £10.81 and £8.31, respectively.
We always try our best to use cosmetics and products that have an ethical background. Which is why we like the assortment of treats available from Tiana Fair Trade Organics. The clue is in the title with Tiana as they offer premium quality, organic and Fair Trade food, drink and beauty products. Their Rose Fresh Coconut TLC Anti-Ageing Moisturiser is Tiana’s flagship beauty product and we think it would make a perfect little stocking stuffer. This coconut oil moisturiser has a unique formula developed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, deeply condition, smooth and hydrate the skin. It’s available from the Tiana Website for £15.29.
Harley Street Skin Care
But if you want to push the boat out and get the very best in skincare products, Harley Street Skin Care will be hard to beat. Famed for their celebrity connections, Harley Street’s all natural, skincare range is perfect for detoxify your skin’s cells – helping you fight the signs of ageing.
