Buying gifts to give people over the festive season can be tough. We want our presents to be useful and bring people joy. One thing that ticks both boxes is some bougie skincare.
Here are the skincare picks we know your nearest and dearest will love.
1. Lancôme Advanced Génifique Concentrate
Launched in 2009, this best-selling product has been around for over a decade and the formula continues to innovate and improve. All skin types and age groups can benefit from using this serum which promises a soft, glowing, more youthful complexion in as little as seven days.
2. SENSAI Absolute Silk Illuminative Cream
This Japanese brand harnesses the power of silk in its products, which keeps skin soft and supple. This cream isn’t just incredibly moisturising but can lessen the appearance of wrinkles while also minimising the appearance of dark spots for a smooth, even complexion.
3. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
Just in case you don’t know how popular this beauty fave is, one tube sells every minute globally. It is a multipurpose balm which can be used to address a range of concerns. It works well as a nourishing lip balm, can soothe burns and abrasions, tame brows and more!
4. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
The revolutionary formula of this popular morning and nighttime serum is what makes it a best-seller. It helps the skin to regenerate overnight and, during the day, it helps to prevent free-radical damage. This delays the onset of signs of ageing, such as fine lines and dark spots.
5. Clinique Moisture Surge Eye Hydro-Filler Concentrate
Hyaluronic acid is known as nature’s moisture molecule and can help to retain water in the skin for a plump complexion. This concentrate is designed for use around the eye area – often the first to show signs of ageing – giving it a moisture boost and wake-up call.
6. Clarins Double Serum
Another serum that has a huge global fan base, this skincare spoil is one that any beauty aficionado would love. It blends the best of nature (over 20 plant extracts) and science to tackle the different signs of ageing to make your complexion brighter and more youthful.
7. Fenty Skin Total Cleans’r Remove-it-all Cleanser
Some cleansers can strip the skin of the oils necessary to keep our skin barrier functioning optimally. Not this one! The creamy lather removes all make-up, dirt and oil from your pores for a serious deep-clean while adding moisture to your skin to keep it healthy.
8. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
This cream is perfect for all skin types as it delivers major hydration but has a light, comfortable formula. It is also fragrance-free and designed to seal moisture in, as well as draw it from the air so it can keep your complexion soft all day, or all night, long.
