First of all, excuse my absence (pretends to be shocked). Your girl is in final year and genuinely hasn’t had a minute to think, let alone write about Christmas presents. But, alas! I’m here, halfway through my deadlines with a gift guide for you lovely lot. I’m thinking of completely rebranding and making that dreaded move to WordPress in the new year, so I’m pretty damn excited about that!
Since I’m a December baby, December is the month I firmly believe in treating myself and I always take inspo from what my favourite bloggers think I should be spending my pennies on. Whilst it’s all good and well to round up a whole bunch of things that have caught your eye. I thought I’d share a few of my favourite products I’ve lovingly tried and tested, that I think would be perfect under the tree.
First up, is the Limited Edition Magnitone Cleanser*. I used to own one of these babies many a moon ago and sadly lost it, so when the lovely Emma at Fetch Publicity asked if I wanted to be part of the Christmas Campaign, I couldn’t wait to jump on board. Especially since the limited edition set features a Rose Gold brush, I mean… every bloggers dream, am I right?
The barefaced box comes complete with two brush heads. One, Active Clean – the standard head which is soft enough for most skin types. The second, The Stimulator which is the real MVP in my opinion. It’s made of rubber bristles, rather than the skin-kind bristles of the Active Clean. Which means that it really massages and works your skin and it’s amazing for applying creams and moisturisers.
The set also includes a cute little travel bag and a wireless USB travel charger, which I think is an absolute lifesaver. Especially if you’re anything like me, I almost always forget to take different plug adaptors with me on holiday, so having a USB charger I can just plug into my macbook is a godsend.
I’m already reaping the benefits of using this brush day and night. My skin feels so soft and squeaky clean. It’s the perfect gift for girls who are lazy when it comes to skincare, totally makes you feel like a right cleansing queen. The brush itself really couldn’t be easier to use, simply pop on your cleanser, press the button, move on to the next area of your face when it beeps and you’re done, easy. Snazzy skin in 60 seconds.
There’s currently a massive £40 off this set at Argos too, so grab one while you can!
As you can probably tell by how much I’ve got left in the bottle, this Monsoon Rose Gold* perfume has been my go-to scent this month. The perfume itself comes in a gorgeous minimal box and shock horror, it’s rose gold again. Bonus points to Monsoon too, as it’s also cruelty free.
The smell is pretty, fresh and floral, everything I look for in a perfume and the staying power is impressive for such a low priced fragrance. I can pack this on for my 9am lectures and still smell it on me once I get back home. Definitely a perfect, guilt free, affordable gift.
Here’s a few other beauty products currently on offer too I’ve been spying on too, that Pixi set is calling my name:
