Deck The Halls With Beauty Baubles


Each year Christmas beauty baubles get better. These decorations are adorable, affordable and packed full of some of our favourite beauty buys, making them a perfect stocking filler or secret santa present!

One of the best Christmas beauty baubles this year is the Melvita Christmas Treats Bauble (£15.00 melvita.com). This beautiful bauble contains some of Melvita's most loved products. Inside you'll find the Damask Rose Floral Water 25ml, a gorgeous hydrating spritz that can be used to rejuvenate skin and set makeup, the L'Or Bio Extraordinary Oil 17ml, which nourishes and protects the skin and the L'Argan Bio Velvet Hand Cream 30ml, which hydrates and protects the hands perfectly during the cold winter months.


A great affordable option is the Burt's Bees Classics Pomegranate Gift Set (£6.99 burtsbees.co.uk). This tree decoration is filled with two beauty essentials every girl needs; the Moisturising Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil 4.3ml and the brand's famous Hand Salve 8.5ml. The Moisturising Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil glides onto the lips like butter and provides enough moisture and nourishment to last a good three hours before needing to reapply. The Hand Salve absorbs into the skin quickly providing hands with instant moisture and leaving behind only a lovely refreshing scent. Only a tiny amount of the salve is needed per use, so even this tiny tin will last a lot longer than you would expect.


If you want to add a little glitter to both your tree and your nails this year, you should check out Mavala's Magic Saphir Nail Polish Bauble (£5.00 Boots). Magic Saphir comes from the Mavala Magic Stardust collection. It is a gorgeous polka saphire glitter nail lacquer that can be worn alone, or layered on top of another colour to add some serious sparkle! As with all Mavala nail polishes, Magic Saphir is long lasting, super shiny and easy to apply.


For the real beauty obsessed girls, you can't go wrong with the Caudalie Beauty Elixir Christmas Bauble (£11.50 feelunique.com). Caudalie's Beauty Elixir is a cult classic, so skincare savvy girls are not only likely to know about it...they're likely to love it! It is an invigorating spray toner that instantly refreshes and hydrates the skin. It contains grape, orange blossom, rose, mint and rosemary, that work together to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of pores.


The final beauty bauble on my list is the Mandara Spa Shimmering Lip Butter Treats (£5.00 Sainsbury's). Enclosed in this beautiful Moroccan-style bauble are two of the brand's Shimmer Lip Butters. They contain shea butter, olive oil, sweet almond oil and vitamin E, which work together to nourish and soften the lips whilst also protecting them. They also smell (and taste) absolutely amazing!
