Luxurious Beauty Care
Firstly, the Moroccan Rose Duo gift set by REN Skincare makes a lovely present. The award-winning Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash and Body Lotion are scented with 100% natural rose oil. They’ll leave your skin feeling super soft and moisturized, and the packaging is really cute too.
Lalique are known for their exquisite crystal perfume bottles and their latest exclusive fragrance is a stunner. Noir Premier Illusion Captive is inspired by a dragonfly brooch that René Lalique created in 1898. With notes of cinnamon, jasmine, vanilla, tonka bean and myrrh, the scent is as stunning as the bottle. There are several other fragrances in the Noir Premier series, including Rose Royale, which combines rose, apricot, violet and musk to great effect. With their lacquered presentation box, they make a lovely gift and are available at Harrods.
To give your skin a boost, we recommend Essentialle facial oils. This luxury natural skincare range is made in Britain and uses aromatic oils and rare plant extracts to revitalize from within. The range of three oils has stylish packaging that will look great in your bathroom, and a dropper for ease of use. The Remedy Multi-Active Re-Balancing Face Oil is perfect for oily or problem skin. Containing plantago leaf, manuka, galbanium and rose absolute, it purifies and calms your skin. The Elasticity Boost Toning Face Oil is great for dehydrated or sagging skin. It uses meadowfoam, Abyssinian seed, radish seed and echium plantagineum seed to lift and rejuvenate. Finally, Revival Nectar Nourishing Face Oil is ideal for dry or lacklustre skin thanks to its effective formula with pomegranate, rose geranium, Siberian ginseng and gingko biloba.
Gatineau have been skincare experts since launching in Paris in 1932. Combining high-tech technology and natural ingredients, they specialize in anti-ageing products. Their gorgeous Christmas cracker contains two of their top products: DefiLift 3D Perfect Design Revolumising Lip Care and Collagene Expert Targeted Wrinkle Corrector. The first contains hyaluronic acid, lavender and shea butter to plump and nourish lips, whilst the latter has a clever roller-ball applicator and features collagen and vitamins C, E and F to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the face, eyes and lips.
This beautiful Gift of Gorgeous Skin box by Elemis is exclusive to QVC. It contains three Winter skincare essentials, as well as your choice of bodycare or handcare treats. The Exotic Blooms range has a tropical scent with notes of Amazonian water lily, bird of paradise and water lemon flower. With Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, Rehydrating Ginseng Toner, Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and your choice of Shower Nectar, Hand Wash or Hand & Nail Lotion, it’s a great way to liven up your skincare regime.
Luxurious Beauty Accessories
The phrase Cool Britannia seems to have been invented for this gorgeous washbag by luxury leather brand, David Hampton. This British designer has been making stylish leather accessories for 34 years. The Britannia leather cosmetic case comes in 3 sizes and colours, red, thistle blue and plum. It’s embossed with a subtle yet stylish Union Jack flag. We love the rich purple shade and butter soft leather. Inside, it has a wipe-clean lining, a large pocket and five elasticated pockets for your toiletries. Great for use at home or travelling and it could even double as an evening clutch bag.
Have you heard of oval make up brushes before? We hadn’t either, but they work much better than traditional brushes. The Brushworks HD Oval Brushes Combo Set contains three soft as velvet make-up brushes. The large oval brush has up to 10 times the number of fibres of a normal brush and adapts to your face shape for perfect coverage. The concealer brush is handy for dealing with problem areas, while the small oval brush highlights and shades your face very well.
Luxurious Beauty Devices
If you want to get your skin squeaky clean, look no further than the Deep Pore Suction Cleanser by SENSSE™. It removes all dirt and dead skin cells and cleans pores in depth. There’s a mist nozzle to help unblock stubborn pores and three suction head attachments – small which works best on delicate areas, big for larger areas of the face and the black head attachment which will reduce both whiteheads and blackheads by up to 80%. There are three intensity levels and a USB charger as well as a 2 year warranty.
We also love the Hot and Cool Facial Bar by SENSSE™, designed to give you a long lasting, radiant glow. With hot and cool modes, it boosts radiance and gives an instant pick me up, reducing fine lines at the same time. It works in four stages, firstly hot mode increases blood circulation, activating cell re-growth and relaxing facial muscles. The hot mode with ultrasonic massage enables optimal moisturizer absorption, whilst cool mode reduces any puffiness or redness and closes your pores. Finally, cool mode with ultrasonic massage helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The Hot and Cool Facial Bar comes with a 2 year warranty and is a great weapon in your beauty toolkit.
For silky smooth skin, nothing beats SmoothSkin Bare. This innovative new product is the fastest IPL device on the market with 100 flashes per minute and recently scooped the Gold Award for Best New Electrical Product 2017 at the Pure Beauty Awards. Imagine treating your whole body in under 10 minutes! It’s really easy to operate, having only one button and can be used safely on most parts of your body including arms, underarms, bikini line and legs. It checks your skin tone before each flash and only activates if safe, so there’s no need for gel. In clinical trials, SmoothSkin Bare delivered up to 92% hair reduction after 4 weeks of treatment and 91% of trialists said they would recommend it. Unlike most devices on the market which have a limited number of flashes available, SmoothSkin Bare offers unlimited flashes and it also has dual treatment modes. Glide Mode works well on large areas such as legs while Stamp Mode is ideal for delicate areas. There’s a 90 day money-back guarantee, though I’m sure you’ll love this as much as we do!
For luscious locks, how about the Remington Air Plates Straightener? With the world’s first suspended plates, they provide maximum contact for sleek hair in one stroke. Made from titanium ceramic, they contain 10 times more ceramic for smoother gliding, as well as cool-touch technology. There are five temperature settings and it heats up in just 15 seconds. The 100 mm straightener length makes it easier to straighten larger sections of hair.
