Beauty and the Beast beauty stocking fillers

How's your Christmas shopping coming along?  Are you sitting smug having finished the lot or are you a last minute Christmas Eve shopper?  I'm somewhere in between - I try to start early and get things ticked off my list, but there's always someone who's hard to buy for, or that perfect gift that's always out of stock which slows me down and sees me panic buying as time runs out.  I did a good bit of shopping online over the Black Friday weekend and have made a serious dent in my Christmas list which I'm pretty happy about.  One of my best finds was the Beauty and the Beast range from Mad Beauty - girlie stocking fillers don't come cuter than this!  

So starting off with the first product to catch my eye, I picked up these adorable Mrs Potts and Chip lip balms.  They're unbelievable cute and dinky!  Mrs Potts has a pinky-red balm which smells like raspberry and Chip has a purple lip product with the scent of blueberry.  I think these are possibly meant for kids, but I've bought them for lots of my female friends because I know they'll love them and will have them out on show on a desk or dressing table, just to add that bit of Disney magic to every day.  These are £7.99 for both Mrs Potts and Chip in the one pack and I think they're awesome.  

I also spotted this beautiful bell jar representing the enchanted rose in Beast's castle.  It's a hand cream in a red rose shaped pot, and it's packaged up the represent the jar.  The hand cream itself looks lovely in the rose design packaging, but you know it's truly from Beauty and the Beast when you see it in the full jar packaging.  I was a little bit disappointed with the quality of this one as you can see the base of the jar inside is sticking up and kind of spoils the look of the product, but I think I just got a slightly imperfect one.  It's not a bad deal for £6.99.

Lastly I had to get some of these bath petals which represent the falling petals from the enchanted rose.  The packaging is shaped like a glass bell with all of the petals trapped inside.  I wouldn't usually buy bath petals and generally prefer a bath bomb, but this was just too pretty to resist and it's an ideal stocking filler or add-on present too as it's just £4.99.  It was a little bit smaller than I was expecting, but I'm still happy with it and I think mine will be sitting out on display for a long time before I actually bring myself to use it.  Beauty hoarder problems!  

All of these plus a couple of other Beauty and the Beast themed gifts are all available at ASOS.
