Ruth Griffin

This week's Christmas gift guide is for the woman in your life who loves her skincare and make-up products and will always be happy to see a beauty gift box under the Christmas tree!

Festive beauty sets are a great way of treating the lady in question to a beauty goodie that she loves and might not always allow herself to splash out on.

A good tip for knowing what she might like is to have a sneak peek into her bathroom cabinet or make-up bag and make a note of which brands she uses.

There are so many gorgeous beauty gift sets available this year that I really struggled to narrow down my top picks for you!

I've sifted through endless options and come up with my absolute favourites: from super luxe beauts to stocking-filler bargains and something for every type of beauty buff. Beauty Advent calendars continue to be super popular this year, with nearly every big beauty brand offering their version for December 2018.

These can be a great way to try new products from brands that your lady likes - and are generally good value too - so bear them in mind for gifting on Christmas Day, even if Advent has technically ended by then!

 

The natural beauty

This woman loves her cosmetics to be eco-conscious, chemical-free and plant-based. Her bathroom cabinet is full of vegan, cruelty-free and holistic beauty goodies
