After a rather chaotic past 2 years, it’s safe to say this Holiday we will be treating our loved ones a little bit more, and here are some of my favourite sets £30 and under available at beauty retailers in the UK.
Its always a struggle to get certain gifts however this year I’ve found that holiday sets are packed full of products to try, which is perfect after not being able to keep up with new launches from brands.
Read on to find out what I’ve found at my local Boots store and take some inspiration for gifting!
Starting off with a beautiful brand, Liz Earle hand creams are superior. They usually have a light scent and are very hydrating. This is in the Rose and Ginger range, it leaves your hands silky smooth and hydrated, which everyone hands need after what feels like a lifetime of hand sanitizer! It also contains a soap and a bag to put the soap in which doubles up as a loofah for the body. Liz Earle are all about sustainable living, and even have a save the bees initiative, but with this set the tin is reusable to store a candle in or even some food.
Two Benefit Cosmetics sets that have stood out to me are the Mascara duo and Brow Duo sets. Both in reusable tins which make perfect for storing minis or even using as Christmas decorations! Bad Gal Bang! Is a long wear mascara that lengthens, and Precisely My Brow is an ultra fine brow pencil perfect for sharp brows, a microbladed look or even to perfect your brow shape.
This GlamGlow set honestly is perfect to treat all skin concerns, with it’s Youth Mud, Thirsty Mud, and Super Mud. If you’ve never tried a GlamGlow mask before, this is the ideal set to have to try their cult classics. Super Mud is packed full of AHAs for problematic skin, Thirsty Mud for tight or Dehydrated skin, and Youth Mud for supermodel ready skin that brightens and has anti aging properties. This set even has a scarf to keep your hair away during pamper sessions.
My two favourite Ole Henriksen products in one set! If you haven’t tried the Lemonade Smoothing Scrub, you are missing out. It’s jam packed full of AHAs, lemon for brightening, and a scrub to buff away dead skin. It even doubles up as a mask if you’re suffering with congested skin. The Truth Juice Cleanser is a perfect gateway product for trying Vitamin C as it has a low dosage of Vitamin C, so a reaction to using this would he minimal. It makes your skin feel soft and smooth and not dry and tight after using.
If you’re more of a pamper person, this Origins set is luxury in a tub. All scents are perfect to unwind after a long day and help calm your senses. Rich and indulgent, they rehydrate tired skin and leave you smooth and smelling gorgeous.
If you’re looking for a set that gives you a quick eye look, this Clinique Power Lashes set has their best selling Lash Power mascara, a Quick Liner, and a mini Take The Day Off Balm to remove it all in a snap. This set contains two full sized products so is great value for money makeup bag must haves.
Clarins have some great value men’s ranges as well, and this is a great stocking filler or extra gift. With a Shampoo and Shower gel, Super Moisture Balm and a 2 in 1 exfoliating cleanser, this set has any essentials he may need to start his day fresh!
Last but not least there is a heap to choose from with No7, and their men’s sets are amazing this year. They even have a beard trimmer in one set, they’ve really thought about what people want this year! These two sets are no different, with their handy travel manicure tin, which I have bought in the past and their quality is fantastic, and a travel wash bag containing daily essentials. Again a lot of their sets promote an eco friendly lifestyle with reusable containers.
These are just a small selection of my favourites this year, so why not pop into store or look online at your favourite retailers to see what you can treat others or treat yourself to Christmas 2021 gifts!
