December has officially arrived team, which means Christmas is only juuuuuust around the corner… YAAAAAAAAAAS!
Anyhow, I thought (since we’re officially in December now) that I’d do a Christmas-themed beauty product post to kick-start the festivities.
I spent what felt like forever putting together all my fave red, green, white and gold beauty products for this, so you better appreciate it.
Check out all the Christmassy goodies below:
Just look at all the puuuurty colours…
I LOVE CHRISTMAS SO MUCH YOU GUYS.
First up we’ve got the “White and Gold” department. Scroll down to see more details on all these pretty wee thangs.
1. L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil-In-Cream
This amazing stuff is actually the #1 hair oil treatment in New Zealand Grocery!
Made with the power of six precious flower oils, this leave-in cream features the nourishing qualities of oil and the moisture of a cream to effectively deliver deep nutrition with zero greasiness.
The revolutionary formula leaves hair smooth and supple, infusing each strand with condition and shine without weighing it down.
2. L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Crystal Gloss
This gorgeous and delicate finishing spray provides hair with long-lasting shine that lasts throughout the day.
It also works to protect against it humidity and frizz, making it an essential to carry around in the handbag.
3. L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Nourishing Shampoo
Firstly, can we just appreciate how magical this bottle looks? Saahhh prettyyyy….
Anyyway, getting back to it – this Mythic Oil Nourishing Shampoo is a nourishing shampoo for all hair types and contains a blend of argan oil and cottonseed oil. It provides a refreshing, cleansing experience, leaving hair manageable and shiny.
4. Manuka Doctor ApiRefine Gold Dust Firming Serum
This one would be this perfect Chrissy present for mum! This special formulation helps to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, giving skin a boost and also regulating discolouration.
Another benefit of this product is locking in moisture and the maintenance of collagen in the skin by inhibiting the breakdown of elastin.
It’s infused with plant extracts such as Mangosteen Peel Extract which helps plump and firm the skin, and Quince Seed Extract to provide a great source of hydration.
5. Designer Brands Quad Mineral Eyeshadow
If you’re looking for an affordable (yet still qualitative) eyeshadow palette to give this Christmas, then check out the range from Designer Brands.
This moss-coloured palette features four highly pigmented (and perfectly co-ordinated shades) that are suitable for all skintypes.
You can purchase this from pharmacies, nationwide or online.
6. Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo
Every single haircare product from Redken proves to be amazing, and this one is no different.
If you’re big on styling your hair/or just use a hair dryer/straightener most days, then you need to give this stuff a go.
This cleansing cream shampoo works to remove copper, iron, hard water minerals and styling product build-up on all hair types. It’s formulated with fruit acids to add shine, it also purifies and refreshes hair.
7. L’Oreal Age Perfect Day & Cell Renewal Creams
There are two options here, depending on the needs of your skin.
The Day Cream provides much needed collagen to skin that needs firmness and reinvigoration. With ingredients that reduce sagging and eliminate the signs of age spots the skin surface appears refined, supported and lifted. The non-greasy texture is instantly absorbed into skin leaving it hydrated, re-nourished and radiant.
Wheras the Cell Renewal Cream accelerates cellular renewal by creating new cells daily to produce softer, suppler and regenerated skin.
Its formula contains Natecium, an active ingredient of natural origin which helps protect the mother cells’ to favour cellular regeneration. The inclusion of pro-calcium, a bio-compatible complex, is designed to strengthen the skin.
8. Guerlain Gommage de Beauté
Let’s be honest, anything from Guerlain will always be treat for the skin.
Gommage de Beauté is one of their latest innovations, and is designed to be used once or twice a week to remove the dull veil that accumulates on a daily basis and reveal a transformed skin texture.
Without a mechanical action, its non-abrasive formula is in perfect affinity with all skin types, even the most sensitive.
Enriched with nigella oil, an age-old ingredient known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it neutralises oxidative stress caused by urban pollution.
7. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Oil
This is the latest addition to the Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water family, and I am seriously in love with it. Like, seriously.
In a nutshell, it’s an all-in-one solution to remove make-up, cleanse and nourish the skin, with no vigorous rubbing or rinsing required.
8. Combination Of White and Gold Nail Polishes

2. Essence ‘Kiss Me If You Can’ Matt Matt Matt Lipstick
What I love most about essence products (besides how good they are), is how they creatively stamp their “e” logo onto the majority of all their products.
This liptsick is from their new “Matt Matt Matt” range, and it is absolutely gorgeous.
3. Sugar Baby Espress-O-Glow Coconut & Coffee Stimulating Body Scrub
Tantalise your senses as you scrub your body smooth with the natural goodness of this gorgeous new body scrub by Sugar Baby. It combines the stimulating benefits of coffee with natural oils providing an ideal natural exfoliator which will leave your skin feeling clean, smooth and soft.

The inspiring scents of sandalwood, vanilla, neroli and blood orange all work together to have a “balancing effect” on the body.
9. Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick
These were launched earlier this year, and I am literally OBSESSED with them.
Maybelline have a whole variety of shades available under their new Vivid Matte Liquid range, but the ‘Fuchsia Ecstasy’ would have to be my fave of the bunch.
