With just over a week left until the big day, your wallet might be feeling a bit strained (I know mine certainly is!), so here are my top picks for those last minute stocking stuffers for the beauty obsessive woman in your life, all around the £10 mark and under. I have split it up into body, hair, skincare, nails and lips/hands so there is something for everyone. Just a little last minute inspiration!
I have two picks here from The Body Shop as they do such great quality body products and are both packaged for the festive season, they also have 50% off all products just in time for Christmas. The Ginger Sparkle Shower Gel (£4) is limited edition for Christmas and has a gorgeous zingy ginger fragrance, perfect to wake you up in the shower. I love the cute little gingerbread man on the front too! The Mango Lip & Softening Gift Set (£7) is the perfect little stocking filler as contains both a lip and body butter, the latter being one of my most favourite body moisturisers ever, especially for those dry lips during winter!
A good face mask is always a winner, and the Origins Clear Improvement Mask 50ml (£10) is a great one for removing all the unwanted grime after the festive season. This is one of the half-sized tubes, so perfect for trying or travelling! The Caudalie Beauty Elixir (£10.35) is an uplifting facial spritz which is great for reviving and refreshing the skin, especially the morning after the night before! Great for those pesky blemishes too! (Review here).
Christmas is the perfect time to go all out with your nails and these gorgeous Nail Wraps from Revlon by Marchessa (£8.99) take all the effort out of nail art! If you prefer a good old fashioned varnish, then add a bit of sparkle to your nails with the Maybelline Color Show Broacdes in Knitted Gold (£3.99), a perfect mix of gold and rose gold glitter, so pretty!
The Ojon Volume Advance Shampoo & Conditioner (£7 each) are the cutest travel-sized bottles and are a great way to try the brand if you have never used their products before. Ojon does such good quality products and this little duo is perfect for those ladies who love pampering their hair!
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a red lip and Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick in 111 Kiss of Life (£5.49) is the perfect red for the party season and would look great on anyone! And finally to keep those chapped hands at bay of the winter, the L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (£8) is one of the best around and this small 30ml tube is great for putting in your handbag, as you never know when you might need it!
I hope this has helped with a bit of inspiration for those last minute gifts, I hope you all get some lovely stocking fillers this Christmas too!
