Starting with Skincare 🧴

Skincare can make for such a perfect Christmas present. It has the ability to make a great stocking filler, or more luxury items make up a fabulous main present.

Barker and Sloane

I’ve talked lots about this brand previously, so if you are a regular to my blogs or Instagram, you’ll know just how much I love the Barker and Sloane skincare brand, and how much I’ve thought it’s helped my skin in the past.

Based around three core products, this luxury brand has you covered out in the field, as well as day and night- perfect for those of us working, living and loving the countryside!

I have a separate blog post all about these products so please head over and read the in depth review if you’ve love to find out more about the ingredients and the product uses.

How about letting someone sample the products for themselves. The Discovery gift set comes with a miniature of the three main products, tucked inside a cute tweed purse!

Soap & Glory Bright + Pearly Vitamin C Radiance Boosting Cocktail

I love this little cocktail booster from Soap and Glory. This product adds a light reflecting sheen to the skin, helping to brighten dull and tired looking skin. I’ve found this the perfect item as a primer before putting on my foundation, or this is great to mix with your foundation for a fresh faced glow. The petals within the bottle burst as you use it and pump the product up through the bottle.

This little product makes for the perfect present as it feels like a bit of a treat in a bottle, plus the product look and packaging is so beautiful, it really does make for the perfect gift.
