Gifts for Classic Beauties

Luxury Vanilla Handcare Set
£19

Vanilla smells especially gorgeous in Winter. There’s something about that creamy warmth that is a gorgeous contrast to the more spicy smells of the season, making you feel all wrapping up in comfort. Vanilla body products are lovely, but the Roger & Gallet Vanilla handcare is something else; a touch of true luxury every time you wash your hands, meaning that you get to smell the sumptuous creaminess pretty much all day!

Clarins For Your Eyes Only
£18

It’s lovely to get a bit of premium make-up for Christmas, especially if your budget doesn’t allow you the luxury during the year. The Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara gives visibly elongated, voluminous, defined lashes with a perfect curl. An additional Instant Eye Make-Up Remover and Eye Revive Beauty Flash complete the indulgent set.

 

Crabtree & Evelyn Island Night Candle
£26.88

The seriously beautiful India Hicks Island Night candle from Crabtree & Evelyn is a sumptuous choice, with its soft wax poured into a indigo glass jar and wrapped in a silver coral cuff.
