The holiday season is nearly upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about gift giving. The festive ranges are already out, and there have been some really great skincare launches this year that I’m pretty excited about.
I think skincare/body care are always great gifts if you’re not quite sure what to get somebody – everyone loves and uses skincare so it’s an easy pleaser! There are often cute gift sets that are launched for Christmas too which do all the hard work for you and let people try out a few different products.
I was lucky enough to receive a few products from the festive skincare launches, so I thought I’d compile my favourites into a gift guide for you guys!
Dermalogica launched their new body care this month, and as someone who loves their skincare I just knew these were going to be good. Body products are a great gift because not only are they well-loved, their really useful to have too.
I was kindly sent the new body wash and body cream and I’ve absolutely fallen in love. I have really dry skin, so the fact that this body wash is soap-free is absolutely fantastic for me. It still foams up so you feel really clean, but my skin feels soft after using it rather than dry. This body wash smells amazing too, it’s eucalyptus and lavender which is somehow really energising and soothing all at the same time – I love it!
The moisturiser is equally amazing, it’s very rich but still sinks into the skin quickly. I’ve only used it for a couple of days but it has already made such a difference in my skin, and it really keep my skin feeling hydrated long after I’ve applied. This is scented with green tea and citrus which is so light and refreshing – I seriously can’t get enough of these products.
Dermalogica also launched a body oil and exfoliator which look equally amazing – though none of these products are sold in a set, you can pick and choose your favourites individually! The prices range from £27-£47.50 and you can shop the collection here.
Green People are my go-to for organic skincare that really works (and won’t hurt eczema-prone skin like mine!), and their new Christmas range is as amazing as ever. I’m completely in love with the packaging, the starry night aesthetic is just beautiful!
They have eight products in their Christmas collection, including the gift set and night cream that I was very kindly sent to try out. In the collection there are four gift sets, including one for men, and four single products, with another just for men, so there’s really something for everyone!
I received the Fruitful Nights Beauty Sleep Elixir, which is a really luxurious night cream that is perfect for the harsh winter weather. It contains rosehip oil, one of my favourites, to help target wrinkles and create smoother skin, and it’s scented with raspberry, apple, and vanilla which is so lovely. It’s also only £10, so it’s perfect for a stocking gift or Secret Santa!
I also received the Everyday Organics Gift Set which contains a cleanser, exfoliator, and moisturiser with SPF 15. All of these products are really gentle so they’re great for even the most sensitive of skins, but still super effective.
The cleanser feels really hydrating, so I love that my skin isn’t being stripped of its natural oils. The scrub is really exfoliating without being too harsh, so it’s great for brightening up dull skin, and the moisturiser is perfect for finishing up the routine and giving you a boost of hydration! This is the perfect set to get for someone who is looking to get more into skincare, it has everything you need and it’s only £15!
The Christmas collection ranges in price from £8.50-£15, and you can grab them here.
Dr. Botanicals recently launched their new Hemp moisturiser in their smaller size – I absolutely love their Hemp range so I was really excited to receive this. Though this isn’t quite a holiday launch, it is a newly launched product that I think would work really well as a stocking stuffer!
This moisturiser contains Hemp Seed Oil and Cocoa Butter to help deeply hydrate and plump dry, dull skin, making it a really perfect moisturiser for winter. The smaller size also makes it perfect for travelling! This is only £15, but you can get it for £5 with the code NEWHEMP. You can shop the entire Hemp collection here.
So those are my favourite festive skincare launches that I think would make perfect gifts! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments which one you would most like to receive as a gift. See you next time,
