NET-A-PORTER Vanity Case

With 14 of the most coveted beauty products in one elegant black vanity case, this truly is the ultimate kit for the beauty connoisseur. Containing a Dr. Barbara Sturm serum, Augustinus Bader oil, Omorovicza eye cream, Westman Atelier highlighter, 111Skin face mask and even an Angela Caglia crystal eye mask (and there’s even more), it’s my beauty dream-team to go.

Westman Atelier Les Petites Clean Glow Trio I

This totally charming set of mini-sized makeup products gives you all the brilliance of Gucci Westman’s Lit Up Highlight Stick (still my absolute favorite), Biscuit contour and Petal pink blush, but now downsized and more purse-friendly.

La Mer Crème de la Mer

From the small to the elegantly super-sized, this bumper pot of the world’s most famous face cream will delight any true La Mer fan, or anyone who loves great skincare and a soft, healthy and glowing complexion.

NET-A-PORTER Party Prep Beauty Kit

The perfect edit of nine of the best skin, hair and makeup products to keep you looking great throughout the holidays – and into the new year. Including Wander Beauty eye masks and Bioeffect face masks, plus a Charlotte Tilbury eye palette and R+Co hair finisher, it’s the perfect kit for every beauty lover.

GHD Hot Brush Gift Set

One of those ‘how did I ever live without it?’ products, this heats up fast to leave next-day hair looking sleek and shiny. Brilliant for puff, frizz and fly-aways, it gives mid-curly to straight hair a perfect, polished finish.

NuFace Mini Magical Results Facial Toning Gift Set

It may be a little smaller than usual, but this smart micro-current device still packs a punch when it comes to sculpting and toning the face. Use for five minutes a day, five days a week, for a more lasting change – although you will still see a visible (albeit short-term) difference from just a one-off, pre-event treatment. Best of all, it’s so simple to use.

Olaplex Healthy Hair Essentials

If you haven’t already discovered the transformational results of the famous No.3 Hair Perfector, then this mini kit is your perfect starter set (it also includes the shampoo, conditioner and Bonding Oil). Use it as a weekly post-wash treatment (I leave it on overnight) for your best hair yet.

MZ Skin LightMAX Supercharged LED Mask 2.0

As one of the true stars of home devices, LED masks are a great way to effectively boost collagen, and this brand-new version comes with clinical grade FDA-cleared LED technology. Plus, the mask itself is flexible (made from medical-grade silicon), so it fits comfortably and closely to the skin. But consistency is key; use it regularly and you will see a difference to the quality and texture of your skin.

Lilah B. Golden Hour Heroes

If you love a sheeny finish to your skin (cheeks, shoulders, shins), then the Aglow Golden Priming Oil is an essential for you. Leaving skin glowing – not greasy – and with the prettiest soft scent of lavender, I just love it. Plus, in this little set you also get a tinted Lip Oil and the beautiful Lip & Cheek matte duo. It’s all you need for a modern, fresh-faced look.

Jo By Jo Loves scented candle

This super-sized 2.2kg scented candle makes the most indulgent and enduring gift – to yourself or someone else. The personal blend of Jo Loves’ founder and perfumer Jo Malone, it beautifully layers the fresh, clear notes of lime and grapefruit with the rich warmth of woods.
