Christmas Beauty Gift Guide

Hello everyone! Hope you are well. There is only 17 days until Christmas. This year has gone so quickly - it is actually quite scary how quickly time goes by nowadays! Today I am sharing with you my favourite Christmas Beauty Gifts for this year! So let's take a look!

This Limited Edition Revitalising Mask Set (RRP $49) by Dr.Hauschka is the perfect gift for someone who loves pampering theirselves with a facial or mask. It features everything needed for an at home, spa quality experience complete with a special keepsake porcelain bowl and professional quality brush that may be used with the masks for years to come. This set includes: Clarifying Steam Bath, Clarifying Clay Mask, Cream Mask, Mask Brush & Porcelain Bowl. It helps to refine and refresh the skin, leaving your skin feeling soft and amazing. Dr.Hauschka is available David Jones and Online.

Innoxa Hand & Lip Pack in the scent Rose (RRP $14.95). This cute little two set from Innoxa has a gorgeous rose scented hand cream that leaves your hands super soft, and a beautiful deep red rose creamy lipstick (which also smells of roses). This is such a good little stocking filler and so cheap too! Innoxa is available from Myer and online here.

Benefit's Goodies A Go-Go (RRP $43 from Myer) is such a cute little make up pack with products to help give you a gorgeous smokey eye look. It contains 4 beautiful shadows, an eyeshadow primer and a mini sized version of the cult favourite They're Real mascara (which happens to be my favourite mascara of all time). This pack is perfect when stuck for ideas!

Tangle Teezer Compact Styler (RRP $34.95) I bought my first tangle teezer in 2009 and have never used a regular hair brush since. I love mine so much so when I saw this super cute Compact Styler in adorable bon bon packaging I knew I had to feature it. Tangle Teezers do not snag your hair or brush out any knots super easily. This will make a great gift for my female family members! Tangle Teezer is available from selected salons nationally. Phoenix Nationale has a salon locater to find your nearest Tangle Teezer stockists.

For the man in your life who likes to take care of themselves - this is the perfect gift by Paula's Choice. It is the Paula's Choice 4 Men Complete Kit (RRP $150.00 but on special at the moment here). This comes with a face wash, shave balm, soothe & smooth balm, daytime moisturiser and night time moisturiser. It also comes with a handy travel bag valued at $30.00. This kit is suitable for all skin types and helps with anti-aging, blackheads and redness. 

So what are your Christmas beauty picks this year? I hope you liked mine! Thanks for reading as always and speak to you next time!

Geometric Skittle Nail Art

Hey everyone! I have a really quick post to show you. I did these geometric skittle nails about 4 months ago, before my business began. I am so surprised that since starting my own nail art business how much better I have become at nail art. This manicure is special to me because it represents the beginning of my new career, and happiness. I wore this manicure on a very important business trip to Melbourne and remember the weekend very clearly. All was done freehand using Kester Black and Orly colours.
