Be prepared to have your mind bloooooown by this MAMMOTH Christmas gift guide for beauty lovers.
It’s my annual tradition to put together a Christmas gift guide for beauty lovers, and this year I may have gone a bit OTT… but hey, it’s Christmas.
Anyway, getting straight to it. There’s everything from lipsticks to hair straighteners in here, so I promise you won’t be left uninspired!
Check them all out below, and be sure to let me know if there’s something I’ve missed out on this list in the comments below.
1. Beauty goodies from The Beauty Collective
I know, it’s a pretty vague heading… but hey, it’s true! You can literally get so much from thebeautycollective.co.nz, and it’s all super gorgeous and affordable.
The above Tender Love + Carry Holographic Utility Box is an actual dream for only $24.95 – and what girl doesn’t love rose gold? It even has all these little compartments inside it to keep your brushes/pencils separated from everything else.
I’m aaaaaaall about the Simply Essential Pro Series range – in particular the Contour Essentials Brush Set and Blending Sponge.
2. Vanilla & Coconut Pamper Set from Designer Brands
How gorgeous is this little pamper set from DB? I am seriously in loooooove.
Designer Brands have a whole range of Christmas sets available this year, and the Vanilla and Coconut is definitely my fave fragrance so I’m all about this one.
This cute little set contains a body wash, body lotion, hand cream and a beaaaaaautiful body scrub.
This is also available in a travel kit size, which is perfect for the holiday season.
3. Karen Murrell Keychain Gift Set
How gorgeous is this Christmas gift set from Karen Murrell? I seriously can’t get over how cute that little lipstick keychain is.
It contains an exclusive Karen Murrell rose gold coloured keychain pouch, and two of her bestselling lipstick shades (Camelia Morning and True Love) that transform any complexion into Christmas morning perfection.
Any girl would be stoked to open one of these on Christmas day!
4. Burt’s Bees Delight Your Lips Christmas Set
Give the gift of gorgeous lips this Christmas with a Burt’s Bees Delight Up Your Lips gift set.
Available in either pink or red, your friends and family are bound to love these cute little combinations that contain a 100% natural replenishing Lip Balm and Lip Crayon for long lasting matte colour and moisture.
Burt’s Bees Lip Balms replenish moisture and restore texture to reveal smooth, healthy lips. The Lip Crayons provide a full coverage matte colour in a lightweight but intensely moisturising formula infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil and Jojoba Oil.
5. Garnier Miracle Wake Up Cream
Besides being super cute and pink, Garnier’s new Miracle Wake Up Cream provides skin with 24 hours of hydration.
The ultra-smoothing texture enriched with a high concentrate of Glycerin and rice micro peptides penetrates the skin epidermis, impacting the deeper layers of skin producing rapid, visible results.
6. Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Foam & Self-Tanning Foam
These two products were only recently launched into the Bondi Sands family, and they’ve quickly become fan favourites across Australis and NZ.
Enriched with aloe vera and infused with a scent of cocoa butter, the Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Foam leaves your skin glowing like a day on Bondi beach.
The Ultra Dark foam contains dual tanning actives and Bondi Sands’ signature coconut scent (this one is my fave).
7. Loving Tan 2 Hour Express & Deluxe Applicator Mitt from The Beauty Lounge
If you still haven’t tried Loving Tan, then dare I say you haven’t lived.

9. Remington Remington Shine Revival Straightener
Adding up to 86% more shine, the Shine Revival Straightener’s advanced ceramic plates are infused with Moroccan Argan Oil micro-conditioners (I knowwwww).
The best part about it is that it can be used directly on WET or DAMP hair, with its steam hydration vents allowing moisture to lock in whilst drying hair and straightening simultaneously.
Not forgetting the tools needed for sleek and straight tresses, the Shine Revival Straightener is packaged with a complimentary vent brush and a chic heatproof storage pouch for safe travels.

11. Lush Christmas Range
I am a sucker for Lush products at the best of times, but especially at Christmas!
There is an endless variety of Christmas products available at Lush this year (and I mean endless, I can’t even begin to count how many there are), and I was lucky enough to be sent these four pictured above:
