Christmas Beauty Gift Sets Haul!

Christmas is my favourite time of year, not only for the food and the quality time spent with family and friends, but also for the amazing sales on beauty gift sets!


Yves Saint Laurent Gift Bag
Where better to start than with my favourite purchase of the season? In one of the prettiest festive boxes I've seen, this gift box contains a gorgeous black makeup bag with a gold YSL logo zip, as well as amazing full-sizes of their cult Touche Eclat and Effet Faux Cils Mascara! Even better, the lovely people at YSL have thrown in a great trial size of the Forever Youth Liberator, which I've been wanting to try for the longest time! I got this on sale at £33, which I think we can all agree is the best bargain of the day!


Lee Stafford Poker Straight Gift Set
I used to use a lot of Lee Stafford products, but in recent years I branched out and left them by the wayside, so I was happy to see some old friends in this fabulous gift set I received in my Secret Santa at work. Containing a Dehumidifier, Heat Protection Spray and a Dry Shampoo, every single bottle in this set will get used - don't you just love when every product in a set is a winner?!


Glamglow Glamtastic Facial Set
Eep! When I saw these Glamglow trial sizes on sale for £40, I just had to snap them up! I'm a bit late to the bandwagon on this one, but these masks have been on my wishlist for longer than I can remember, so what better way to try them out than to get all these miniatures? The set brags the YouthMud Exfoliating Treatment, SuperMud Clearing Treatment and ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment, as well as 3 BrightMud Eye Treatments! My skin will be in the shape of its life!


 Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Set
This little baby was calling to me from the Lancome counter at Debenhams, and at £15 it would have been rude to say no, right? It has a full size Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara (which I am completely obsessed with!) as well as 2 amazing bonuses; travel sizes of the Bi-Facial Cleanser and Khol Noir Eyeliner! These will come in super handy for weekends away, and it means I can test them out before making the full investment. Perfect!


Real Techniques Collector's Edition Deluxe Gift Set & Starter Kit
When I saw Amazon had a great sale on Real Techniques brushes, I had to jump on them! I only ever use RT brushes, so I'm happy to replenish my stocks - and at £22 for both sets, I could have squealed with excitement! The Deluxe Gift Set, alongside a pretty white clutch bag, houses everything to create a perfect face - a Multitask Brush, a Tapered Foundation Brush, an Angled Highlighter Brush, a Base Shadow brush and a Fine Liner Brush - whilst the Starter Kit boasts 5 incredible eyeshadow brushes. I couldn't be happier with this little purchase!


Clarins Beauty Must-Haves Gift Bag
Can you believe this fabulous gift bag was only £20?! The bag itself is really good quality and will be getting loads of use in the New Year, and the sizes of the products are pretty impressive too! The Pure Melt Cleansing Gel is one of my favourite Clarins products, as well as the amazing Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, so the Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate and HydraQuench Cream-Mask are just very happy extras for me!


The Body Shop Frosted Cranberry Gift Box & Strawberry Cracker
These lovely little things were gifts so I'm unsure as to price, but the Frosted Cranberry and Strawberry scents are my all-time favourites from The Body Shop so I was over the moon with these! The little box contains a miniature Body Butter, Shower Gel and Bath Lily, whilst the Cracker houses a Hand Cream and heart-shaped soap! (Oh, and the little package is a soy wax melt made by a local lady - it smells divine!)


Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Duo
Ahh, the cult Elasticizer! I've never used this product before, so I was happy to find it in the sale and give them a go - so far I'm more than impressed! My hair is bouncy, shiny and full of volume - expect a full review soon! The scent is incredible, the packaging is gorgeous and the product is excellent. I'm almost certain I'll be purchasing a full-size version as soon as these run out!


No7 Early Defence & Beautiful Skin Skincare
Okay so technically not a gift set, but I found these little beauties in the Boots 3 for 2 sale, and with a £5 off voucher I snagged them for £39 - not too bad for some good quality skincare! The Early Defence Day and Night Creams are both hypoallergenic, which is perfect for my sensitive skin, and whilst they veer slightly on the oily side, my combination skin laps this up in the winter months. The Overnight Radiance Boost has been an absolute lifesaver too, leaving my Christmas-worn skin radiant and renewed in the morning - perfect!

What were your favourite beauty buys this Christmas?
