Christmas 2012 gift guide - My favourite skin care gifts

I can hardly believe it's less than a month until Christmas!  I've been madly trying to get all of my Christmas shopping finished this weekend.  I got a lot done but I failed at finishing - the shops were just so busy and parking anywhere was a nightmare, so it seriously slowed me down.  I'm now aiming to finishing my shopping online from the safety of my living room!

If you need a bit more inspiration for your shopping list, you might like today's gift guide, which is a round up of my favourite skin care gifts that I've spotted this year.

Nip + Fab, REN and Origins are all skincare brands I've discovered and started to love this year, so I had to include some of their gift sets in this guide.  I have a gift voucher burning a hole in my pocket and I think it's going to be spent on one of these.  Liz Earle cleanse and polish is one of my all time best beauty discoveries, so I think giving this set to any friend or relative that's never tried Liz Earle is one of the nicest things I could do this Christmas.  Philosophy miracle worker is something my Mum would love - she's never offended by receiving anti-ageing skincare as a gift, she can't get enough of it!




I've only recently discovered Rodial - I tried a sample sachet of their snake serum and I was pretty impressed.  I'm intrigued by the liquid facelift in a box, although slightly deterred by the price, but I guess you have to splash out if you want serious results.  I'd be delighted to open this up at Christmas.  LP Skin Therapy (by Dr Linda Papadopoulos) is a brand I've been meaning to try for a while and this lips and eyes set looks like the perfect introduction.  I'm a big fan of Benefit's porefessional, so I thought this gift set looked pretty good and it's such a bargain.  Estée Lauder's Advanced Night repair is one of the best products I've tried this year, so this gift set including that and some other super hydrating Estée Lauder products looks fab.  And finally, I've included L'Occitane's Immortelle range - you get a whole lot of product for £60 and it's a massive saving compared to buying the products individually.

If you're thinking about rewarding yourself for completing all of that Christmas shopping you might want to give your hair a treat with the kerastase elixir ultime from Terence Paul or you could try the Moroccan oil for sale at Urbanretreat.

Are you asking for any skincare gift sets this Christmas?
