The time to deck the halls is nearly upon us and so I thought I’d begin my mini Christmas gift guide series with a £15 and under beauty guide because, as we’ve all come to realise as adults, that Christmas can become a financial burden if we don’t keep within our present-buying-budgets! So, I’ve scoured the internet, searched low and high for both value for money and really beautiful products, and have narrowed it down to these 10 rather fab (IMO) gifts that all come within the £15 mark and I hope this is somewhat helpful!
Stila’s lips are sealed set – £12.50 – I can vouch for all the great reviews of these creamy matte lipsticks as I have one and they really are a great, long lasting and comfortable formula. This is a great little duo and one that I feel is at a great price point because the packaging is nice and the liquid lipsticks themselves are 0.05oz each.
Urban Decay’s makeup lockdown travel duo £13.50 – The all nighter spray from UD is one that we’ve all come to know over the years and this is a great little duo for any makeup addict really; particularly for those who go out on a regular basis because the mini setting spray is clutch bag friendly!
Charlotte Tilbury makeup bag £15 – Because who doesn’t love a good, spacious makeup bag?
Nails Inc candy cane £15 – There are so many great nail gift sets on the market this Christmas but this one trumps them all in my opinion, not least because of the cutesy packaging, but also because of the value for money as this makes the polishes £3.75 each!
Lush’s Rudy the reindeer £11.95 – I’d personally be happy to receive any of Lush’s Christmas offerings but I think this is just so unique and adorable. It contains the butterball bath bomb and the shoot for the stars bath bomb.
Zoeva’s rose golden blush palette £15 – Aside from the beautiful packaging, I think this would make a lovely present as it’s just so wearable and the individual pans contain a really good amount of product.
Clinique’s Christmas cracker £15 – In all honesty, I find most Christmas beauty crackers to be a waste of money but I was determined to find one that really offered value for money and great brand favourite products. The contents of this cracker are worth over £27 and includes the cult moisturising lotion (30ml), a mini high impact mascara and a mini pop lip & primer in plum pop.
Caudalie mix and masks trio £15 – This is, again, a great value for money set and is one that would be perfect for any skincare lovers in your life.
Scrub Love’s coffee & coconut body scrub £13.95 – A good body scrub in the colder months is an essential in any beauty lover’s books and this one sounds gorgeous.
Philosophy’s cinnamon buns shower gel £14.50 – I think Philosophy offer the best shower gels on the market and they always release really fun and festive scents at this time of the year.
