Mini BEAUTY Holiday Gift Guide

Holidays are upon us, decorations are either being put up or already up, people are likely blasting the holiday music playlists on their Spotify. This Christmas will be a different one from previous years as we are social distancing and only allowed to see family members within the household, Christmas parties won’t be as crowded as they usually are but I’m sure some of us are still buying gifts for our loved ones either mailing it or dropping it off to them. I’m sure most of us already know how challenging it can be shopping for some of our friends or family members. I wanted to do a cute little beauty gift guide for your family and friends. This is a budget-friendly one so it most certainly won’t break the bank.

YARDLEY Fragrances

These come in a beautiful range of scents to choose from. I know fragrance preferences can very subjective but I can assure you – there is a good range for you to select from. I only have 3 here to share with you today but YARDLEY does offer body sprays and fragrance mists. These beautiful perfumes are Eau De Toilette, Eau De Toilette means that the fragrance inside will be much more concentrated than your traditional fragrance mist, body mist and Eau De Parfum.

Here are the descriptions for each Fragrance:

All of these fragrances contain 90% naturally derived ingredients and a vegetable derived alcohol base. Cruelty Free and suitable for vegans.

Lavender

A beautifully fresh, light, elegant fragrance with top notes of bergamot and clary sage with a heart of calming English Lavender subtly combining notes of eucalyptus, geranium, jasmine, chamomile and violet, enhanced with deeper, warm base noes of wood, vanilla and patchouli.

ENGLISH ROSE

A refreshing, light floral fragrance with sparkling citrus and rose top notes and a heart subtly combining rose bud, magnolia, violet and cassis with warm woody notes, whilst patchouli and musks add velvety tones to the base.

LILY OF THE VALLEY

A light, feminine white floral fragrance with fruit pear accords in the top note and a beautiful floral bouquet heart that blends lily of the valley and freesia, enhanced with a pretty, musky base.

These are available on their official website are currently on sale  £9.99 | $ 17 CAD, which is really affordable because you get 125ml of product for a really affordable price. Eau De Toilette fragrances are usually more expensive as the concentration is more potent and has a powerful longevity. Fragrances are often very expensive and marked up but I found these reasonably priced. You also can find their products at Shoppers Drug Mart.
You can find this beautiful set at Well.ca | Shoppers Drug Mart | London Drugs | Their Official Website.

Makeup tools, brushes and sponges will never go out of style or trend because a lot of us use these to apply on our makeup. These Real Technique Sparkle-On-The-Go brushes and sponge set is perfect for not only travelling but they don’t accumulate too much space and the brush handles can stand on their own. Growing up, I’ve used Real Technique sponges and I can confidently say that they’re just as good as beauty blenders. Real Technique sponges have soft and beautiful synthetic bristles. I really like the design for these and how compact they are. I think they would make an excellent gift for any makeup lover – beginner or intermediate, these will be loved.

That’s it for now, friends. Stay tuned until next time.
