This was SO much fun! Look fantastic gave myself and fellow beauty fanatic and blogger Siobhan of Beautylymin a £50 voucher each to buy each other a surprise for Christmas.
We were really strict in not discussing anything about the secret santa with one another ; no questions, no hints, no preferences so we both just went off, secret squirrelling on our own so it would be a total surprise.
Not only does Siobhan have more beauty products than anyone I’ve ever known making it VERY tricky to purchase beauty she doesn’t already have, but Look Fantastic have SO many amazing exclusives and Christmas sets that I literally spent about 2 hours looking for gifts that she wouldn’t already have.
Every time I put items into my shopping basket, I went to check on her blog…...she had it. Honestly the hardest beauty blogger to buy for!
WHAT I CHOSE FOR SIOBHAN…finally.
I whittled it down to 2 main items and then I had a little bit of money leftover so added in a small MIO Liquid Yoga bath soak as a little extra. As you know, I have a few pieces of the Bobbi Brown Christmas collection myself and it’s SO stunning this year so I chose the Bobbi Brown Fever Dream palette for Siobhan as I saw from her blog she didn’t have much Bobbi Brown and she seems to be palette obsessed! I love the warm tones of this palette and the holographic packaging is a winner.
I remember Siobhan saying she had dry skin so the little trio of Dr Lipp lip balms (SOLD OUT!) seemed like a great little gift for winter. I haven’t actually tried the tinted versions but the original is one of the best balms out their for really dry/ chapped lips..
Check out her blog post right here to see what she thought of my choices and see how they look!
MY SECRET SANTA GIFTS.
I was so happy to *finally* get a NEOM candle. I have been meaning to purchase one for years and simply never got around to it. So a perfect choice for me and the scent is ‘Precious Moment’ ; a really beautiful blend of ginger, black pepper, orange & bergamot. I can’t wait to get this fired up and I’ll be sure to let you know how I get on.
I also received a gorgeous set of Aromatherapy Associates bath oils and I think Siobhan mist have been keeping an eye on my blog as I have featured and mentioned these SO many times as they are quite literally my favourite! I use this every week, I am never without them and I have used them for nearly 10 years now. They are SUCH a treat and quite pricey so this little set will not only see me through a few more months of relaxing baths, but there is 3 of the best-selling scents to choose from.
I’m made up with my secret santa gifts!
