It’s that time of the year again, I can’t believe that 2018 is on its last legs. However, with the end of the year comes Christmas which means.
Buying gifts for everyone.
Trying to buy suitable gifts can be difficult, but if you have a lot of women in your family none would be upset to find my suggestions under the Christmas tree. Any of these gifts would be a skincare and beauty lovers delight but are also functional and pretty. So here are my gift set recommendations for 2018.
Sunday Riley -Holiday Heroes Kit
This is one of my favourite brands but its products are very pricey with single products costing up to the value of this kit. This gives you an opportunity to test out their products to identify what works best for you without breaking the bank the samples are not full size but deluxe sizes ranging from 5-30 MLS. My favourites from the brand are the ceramic slip cleanser and the Glycolic Acid treatment both of which are fantastic for oily skin.
The kit includes
- Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment,
- Ceramic Slip Cleanser,
- Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream,
- Luna Sleeping Night Oil
- E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum
CLARINS -Super Restorative Double Serum Set
CLARINS is a staple in the skincare community and needs no introduction and the gift set contains 3 products one of which is chock full of anti-ageing skincare extracts. The gift set contains one full-size product as well as 2 sample size products and a travel/makeup bag. The price is about half of its actual value making it a bargain.
The kits include
- Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate (1 oz.)
- Super Restorative Day Cream for All Skin Types
- Super Restorative Night Cream for All Skin Types
- Travel bag
Tata Harper –Daily Essentials Kit
This is another cult favourite and the kit is filled with samples from the line with products that replenish and rehydrate your skin to give your skin the glow we all are all looking for. The set contains a massive 7 products across the range and although the samples are relatively small they are enough to give you a feel for the products. My favourites from the range are the regenerating cleanser and the resurfacing mask and at just $75 dollars it is a great value.
- Reparative Moisturizer (0.34 oz).
- Rejuvenating Serum (0.34 oz)
- Regenerating Cleanser (0.5 oz).
- Hydrating Floral Essence (0.5 oz)
- Resurfacing Mask (0.25 oz).
- Replenishing Nutrient Complex (0.1 oz)
- Restorative Eye Crème Packet (0.03 oz)
Fresh –Rose Set
I would buy this gift set for the gorgeous looking vintage looking red case and the price at the middle of the range with regards price. Fresh is known for its natural and organic products and this limited edition set is centred on skin softening around a rose water for hydration ritual. This is a great kit to take along if you travel a lot or stay in places with indoor heating or air conditioning which can be drying on the skin.
- Sugar Rosé Lip Therapy (0.07 oz.):
- Rose Face Mask (1 oz)
- Rose Floral Toner (2 oz)
- Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream (1 oz)
ORIGINS – Bestsellers Best skin kit
The quintessential natural based skincare brand has put together a complete skincare regimen suitable for all skin types. The selection is made up of 5 products curated from its bestselling products and comes in an ORIGINS ns branded cosmetic bag. This is the most affordable of the skin care gift sets with a price less than half of its actual market value.
- Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum (0.5 oz.)
- GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer (1 oz)
- Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Soothing Treatment Lotion (3.4 oz) levels.

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe
This is the perfect gift for beauty addict and contains 10 full sized lipsticks including the bestselling and iconic shades. Charlotte Tilbury calls it the KISSING library and has lipsticks for every occasion. However, it’s certainly the most expensive set on the list but if you won’t have to worry about lipstick for a long time (maybe till next year when another gift set is released).
Each of lipstick is enriched with a UV protective and shielding formula which helps with moisture retention. They also have light diffusing particles and waxes that ensure for the smoothest of finishes. To top this up each gift set comes in an exquisite gift box.
ZOEVA Plaisir Box
This box contains a trio of eyeshadow palettes with a kaleidoscope of nude colours. The palettes in the box are the bestselling: Cocoa Blend, Caramel Melange and Blanc Fusion each with 10 shades matte, shimmering and sparkling shades. The formulas are extremely bendable and work well with ZOEVA’s high-tech brushes. All there palettes come in a chocolate box which makes storage easier.
