Christmas Gift Inspo For Her : Tried & Tested Skincare & Beauty Treats


I'm getting right into Christmas Gift Guides in 2018. Mainly because doing my research for them and scoping out products & websites to shop from acts as a form of positive reinforcement for my raging shopping addiction

I log onto a site to find picks for you guys - or gifts for family, and naturally; for 'research', I end up placing a massive order for myself. YOLO.

Today's blogpost covers items I've been testing out personally - bits that I've got in front of me right now and have either bought or been gifted & have fallen in love with. Hard. Tried & tested treats. Recommended by me & stamped with my over-enthusiastic seal of approval.

Anything From the Too Faced Christmas Collection

Anything at all, plsToo Faced's cute gift options are too much to cope with this Christmas. That packaging - and their products in general. PLS 😍 Of course, for 'research' purposes, I had to order a couple of the smaller, stocking filler-esque items to see their designs first hand - and their perfection & pinkness were just too much for me.

I'd stand up and applaud Too Faced if I could be bothered; however, I'm lazy - but the thought is there. Just like you can tell all the thought has gone into their festive collection. Bravo, chaps 🙌

Kiss False Lashes & Nails

No matter what the occasion - or time of year - Kiss' lashes are one of the items I'm forever made up to have in my life. The goody bags Alex Silver PR very kindly treated us to at the Manchester Kiss Event being all my dreams come true. If you know someone who's into falsies - be that false lashes or false nails [as this brand firmly slays them both] I'd highly recommend introducing them to Kiss. Affordable, beautiful and wearable products; with glue included.

Body Shop Beauty

I went to a Body Shop event in Liverpool a few weeks ago, to check out the Christmas products, offers and campaigns these guys have going on. And that properly rekindled my love for the brand; all over again. Some of the makeup we swatched on that night was so pigmented it almost gave me lady wood; so I definitely need to go back and explore it all again.

Their new Christmas scents are probably my everything [me? overdramatic?] and perf for gifts - their Pine Fragranced Diffuser gives me legit chills and the Vanilla Marshmallow Sugar Scrub you see here is just the best thing I've ever bought I reckon. Sorts out mucky fake tan an absolute TREAT.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Love*

I was very kindly treated to this perfume aaaaaages ago from World Duty Free - which I blogged about extensively at the time. I've been using up the remaining few spritzes recently [*sobs*] and I've fallen massively back in love with it. STICK IT IN THE GIFT GUIDE, HUN! It's such a beautiful fragrance - and bottle... there's something really special about receiving lux fragrance for Christmas - a new scent you can make new & festive memories to.

SkinPearls*

I've been trying out these fab lil pearls of goodness recently - and I'm a little bit in love with them. As well as fully obsessed over their fab packaging & luxury vibez. 

SkinPearls sell the most fab skincare bundles that make perfect Xmas gifts; all of which have been specially curated dependent on skin type [so, as an oily skinned gal who's also knocking on a bit, the Anti-Aging and Anti-Acne Bundles call my name. Lots.] There's plenty of options to choose from to gift your recipient with [or to just to go full YOLO and buy for yourself. No judgement here, huns xoxo.]

Each tiny, luxury jar contains one month's supply of pearls; rocking anti-aging unit-dose technology that also treats specific skin types and conditions. All of the 4 products included in your chosen bundle should be used together to see the best results. And they're fully fab.

As soon as you've spooned out, softened and applied the contents of these lux AF SkinPearls to your face or problem area, your skin is left feeling super fresh. And clear, rejuvenated & brighter; after a few days of continued use, too! The contents of the pearls are shimmery AF - the glow you're left with post-application is next level fab. You don't need highlighter if you glow from within, huns xo 

Totes check out this fab concept & brand.

So...? Shimmer Fragrance Mists*

Speaking of shimmer, these new mists from So...? are errrrrthang when it comes to glistening, glimmering and SHIMMERING with hot fragrance over the festive season. As well as being bloody brilliant to slip in a stocking or two this Christmas.

They mist on to leave a very subtle, fine shimmer behind - and a properly fab scent. I thought I'd be most in love with Star Dust, given it's pink AF & totes my aesthetic - but the smell of Champagne Blush has captured my heart the most & I wanna just roll round in it now. Naked. Forever.

Marble Pop Socket*

How much marble is too much marble? Never enough, hun; you're right. This lil pop socket from Boxy Store is the most useful yet also pretty stocking stuffer contender in town. I hate not having a pop socket on the back of my phone - I always use mine to prop my phone up whilst I'm watching EastEnders or YouTube. Treat that special someone in ya life to this luxury too - they'll be forever grateful to ya.


You can get 20% off your pop socket order [or 20% discount off anything from Boxy Store] with code NIKKI20... this pop socket is already a massive bargain at just £3 🙌 THINK OF THE DISCOUNT!!!

Hugo Boss The Scent For Her

My bottle [pictured here] is pretty empty, but I've totally asked Santa for a refill [and word on the street is that he's gonna deliver, too!] This is probs my favourite all-time perfume ever; up there with Chloé and Jean Paul Gaultier Classique. It's so rich and the perfect blend of masculine, warm & sweet notes. Go sniff it, you won't regret it.

Charlotte Tilbury Goodies

EVERYONE wants to see a bit of Charlotte in their stocking tbh, don't they? With her lux products, stunning packaging and insanely brilliant formulas, our queen Tilbury is slaying all the way this Christmas. Her prices are a bit... out there shall we say; so if you're gonna spoil yourself to anything of hers, it may as well be from Santa

I've included the classic Matte Revolution Pillow Talk lipstick in this round-up - as well as the new, glossy Superstar Lips Pillow Talk lippy too. They're both the most wearable shades; and 100% the best investments I've ever made in lippy.

False Eyelashes.co.uk Lashes*

Falseeyelashes.co.uk sent me some of their own branded lashes recently - and I wasn't expecting to fall quite as madly in love with them as I have, tbh. Said new found love affair means I've defo gotta include them in this guide

The style at the top of this pic - the super fluffy, spikey ones, are my absolute FAVES OF ALL TIME EVER and I'm 1000000% gonna be placing an order to stock myself up with them. They're this style, for reference. And the lil lash putter onner tool is a bargain at £4.99 with free shipping; the perfect tool for any falsie enthusiast.
