What I Got For Christmas 2015: Beauty Edition

What I Got For Christmas: Beauty Edition  Molton Brown Origins Skincare Decleor Baylis & Harding Gift Sets

Like any other self-confessed beauty stalker (yes that is a real thing!) I love seeing what beauty presents people got for Christmas! It's interesting to see what other brands/products people love and rate highly, also the perfect reason to try them out too...My family know me too well and have spoilt me with a few of my favourites this year that have been running fairly low . 

What I Got For Christmas: Beauty Edition  Molton Brown Pink Pepperpod Body Lotion Body Wash Bauble Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower Gel

Molton Brown is a favourite bodycare brand of mine, after my mum and sister introduced me to their gorgeous scents and formula's. They are on the pricey side, but the quality and quantity of the product far outweighs the cost and they usually do a great sale and value-for-money gift sets! You may have guessed that Pink Pepperpod is my favourite scent range from Molton Brown - it's slightly musky and spicy, which I much prefer to sickly sweet smells. On the other side of the spectrum, Rhubarb & Rose is sweet but the sharpness from the rhubarb keeps it on the good side of sweet!

What I Got For Christmas: Beauty Edition Origins Shining Stars GinZing Moisturiser, Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask Modern Friction Scrub Ginzing Cleanser

So my mum can take a hint! I spotted this on one of the Boots Star Gift weekly offers and subtly pointed my mum in the right direction (so I basically put it in her basket for her!) I adore the GinZing Moisturiser for adding energy and hydration to my dull skin, and especially love the gel texture too. I've heard great things about the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask and have tried it a few times since Christmas. Unfortunately I did have an area of breakouts after using it, but I'm hoping this was just a coincidence! The other two scrub and cleanser (Modern Friction and GinZing) I'm yet to try out properly, but if they're part of the Origins Shining Stars collection I have high hopes for them.

What I Got For Christmas: Beauty Edition Baylis & Harding Limited Edition Midnight Fig & Pomegranate Gift Set Body Wash Hand Cream Body Lotion Shower Creme

Baylis & Harding isn't a brand I would usually go for, but my sister has great taste and knew I'd love the scent of their Limited Edition Midnight Fig & Pomegranate gift set. The set includes two body washes, body lotion, shower creme and hand cream in the same sweet and indulgent scent. It's a wintery smell (if that makes sense?!) and relaxes you instantly! Keep an eye out for a review on these soon.

What I Got For Christmas: Beauty Edition Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang Purifying Night Balm

I was lucky enough to get my favourite (and skincare indulgences!) from Decleor for Christmas. I'd definitely recommend checking out the french brand, even though they're on the expensive side, their products do a bloomin' great job (as do all french skincare products!) This pot will last me for roughly a year before I need to buy a new one. It's a thick and waxy paste which you take a tiny piece to warm in your palms, then spread across your face and neck after moisturising. This is the only product which'll calm down any redness, spots and blemishes whilst hydrating and nourishing my dry skin. Highly recommend!
