For our extra special December edition of lookfantastic Beauty Talks, we gathered together our favourite beauty Christmas gifts to help you find the perfect presents for those you love this festive season.
- Q What do you recommend as a skin and beard care gift kit for my male partner as a Christmas gift?
- A We recommend the House 99 Smooth Shaver Gift Set containing a Smooth Cut Shaving Foam, Purefectly Clean Facewash and Greater Look Moisturiser. It is the perfect three-piece shaving set that works to cleanse, soften, smooth and deeply moisturise for a clean cut appearance without irritation. We also love the Jack Black Kissable Beard Gift Set that includes the Jack Black Beard Oil, Intense Therapy Lip Balm Natural Mint and Beard Wash which is designed for all skin and hair types to cleanse, condition and soften facial skin and hair.
- Q Are there any gift sets that contain the PIXI Glow Tonic?
- A PIXI have a beautiful gift set for Christmas called the PIXI Fast Flash Facial! that is a must-have kit for transforming dull, rough skin. This radiance enhancing set contains Peel & Polish Resurfacing Concentrate, the cult-favourite PIXI Glow Tonic and the Rose Flash Balm Instant Booster to energise and transform the appearance of lack-lustre skin.
- Q What's your best advice for getting Christmas party ready?
- A We absolutely love using the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer to prep our skin for any party look to blur imperfections and the appearance of pores for a flawless finish. For a party-perfect glitter hit, we love using the Illamasqua Iconic Chromes to create beautiful dramatic glitter eyes and lip looks. Our highlighter of choice for any party look is the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops to add a rich, glowing highlight to achieve the perfect glow for the party season.

- Q If you had to choose one gift set to get this Christmas, what would it be and why?
- A We are obsessed the with the NEOM Sleep and Glow Face Care Collection that combines the Perfect Night’s Sleep Cleansing Balm, the Perfect Night’s Sleep Face Oil and a beautiful cleansing cloth - everything you need to cleanse and nourish in a beautifully presented gift box. Another one of our favourites is the Emma Hardie Instant Radiance Kit Gift Set containing four beautiful Emma Hardie products including the iconic Moringa Cleansing Balm, a Dual Action Cleansing Cloth, the Brilliance Facial Oil and the Moringa Renewal Treatment Mask to instantly uncover your skin's natural radiance to cleanse, brighten and deeply nourish dehydrated skin.
- Q What is the perfect under £20 Christmas gift?
- A If you're looking for the perfect gift under £20 for one of your loved ones then look no further than the Lime Crime's gorgeous collection this Christmas! Add an instant sparkle with the Lime Crime Diamond Dew Highlighter that allows you to add a shimmering effect on the cheeks and body. We also love the Lime Crime Mini Lip Kits and Venus XS Eyeshadow Palettes which make the perfect stocking fillers.
- Q What's your favourite scent to wear at Christmas?
- A Christmas is all about the party season so no doubt you will be in search of a beautiful scent to wear to your seasonal parties. We recommend the Stella McCartney Eau De Parfum - a beautiful marriage of Rose and Amber that is the perfect sensual fragrance for anyone to wear at Christmas. Another one of our favourite fragrances is the new Paco Rabanne Pure XS for Her Eau de Parfum that is a seductive fragrance rich in sweet vanilla and powerful, provocative accords housed in a gorgeous pink bottle.
- Q What do you love about the REN Christmas sets?
- A Each of the REN Christmas gift sets are filled with gorgeous skincare treats which work wonders on all skin types. We love the REN Share Gift Set as all the products are lightly scented with a harmonising, 100% natural rose oil that revitalises your senses and allows you to relax your mind and body. The REN Care Gift Set is also a lovely favourite that contains the Global Protection Day Cream, the Glycol Lactic Mask and the KYB Beautiful Beauty Shot that combine together to brighten, lift and hydrate skin throughout the day.
