The Big Beauty Christmas Gift Guide 2022

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer

This year  I've decided to share one big beauty gift guide full of fab brands and incredible products. My beauty-focused gift guide will take you from Secret Santa to stocking fillers and big beauty gifts galore for your nearest and dearest. There's something for every budget, you'll notice a lot of my go-to beauty brands feature which you would've seen on my blog over the last few years and there are some new faves - I'm excited and I hope you are too.

It's full of the best in beauty, some fabulous gift sets, some of my favourite skincare brands and the hair tool that you (or someone special) absolutely need in your life.

The award-winning natural skincare company have a whole host of products to make the skincare lover in you excited! From their Miracle Mask to the Age Smarter range and all the Christmas giftsets you can imagine, I would absolutely love to find Evolve under my Christmas tree this year. I have two top picks for you, firstly The Super Treats (£43.00) set features three targeted face masks designed to exfoliate, rejuvenate and nourish. Inside you'll find the Miracle AHA 3-Minute Mask, my FAVOURITE Bio-Retinol Gold Mask and the True Balance SOS Mask. It's such a great selection of products and the sizes are super generous. 

Secondly is The Smooth & Soothe Duo (£32.00) a beautifully packaged gift set housing the exfoliating Rose Quartz Facial Polish blended with organic Rosehip Oil and organic Hibiscus Extract to help buff away dead skin cells and the Daily Renew Facial Cream to nourish, and hydrate and soothe. 

What a treat!

If you have a skincare lover in your house then this advanced 3-in-1 facial system will be the gift that keeps giving as it helps to visibly smooth and exfoliate the skin. The Trophy Skin Ultraderm MD (£298.00) is a professional device with a diamond exfoliation tip that works to reduce the appearance of fine lines while helping to visibly even skin tone and texture. Skin appears noticeably smoother and more lifted while revealing a radiant-looking glow. 

It utilises advanced kinetic technology helping to exfoliate skin and unclog pores with low sonic vibrations and isometric compression - it's quite incredible, I've been blown away by what it does. 

Douvall's is a leading argan natural skincare, haircare, makeup and wellness range offering luxury and innovative products of the highest quality, all of which are responsibly sourced. Created by mother and daughter team Alicia and Georgia Douvall, the exciting award-winning range was made after they discovered the benefits of argan oil and found a gap in the market for skincare and a make-up brand. 

I'm always drawn to something a little different and the Organic Argan Skincare Candle - Orange & Frankincense (£45.00) is just that! Made with eco-soy wax that doesn't get too hot or burn the skin, the candle is a beautifully nourishing treatment for all over the body. It's expertly blended with nourishing oils and butter, such as cocoa butter and Douvall's 100% first cold pressed argan oil which is high in vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids to nourish, soothe, and repair dry skin.

We also have the Scents to Uplift (£38.00) gift set featuring three limited-edition scents. Each one has been hand-blended using natural essential and botanical oils. There's Lemon and Basil Shower Spray, Vanilla, Coconut and Black Pepper Room Spray and Mandarin and Lemon Toilet spray - each one promising to uplift and refresh your home. 

There are some really great products for Christmas from the dedicated sleep brand, Feather & Down this year. If someone you know, or even yourself struggles with sleep then this is for you. 

The Feather & Down Self-Heating Slumber (£12.00) helps to create the ultimate bedtime routine with three self-heating eye masks and their award-winning pillow spray. I adore self-heating masks, they're perfect for totally switching off and I find them great for after a migraine too. 

Hoping to see this in my stocking this year!

Next are the Feather & Down Sleep Stones (£18.00) which would make a great gift for someone that needs a sense of tranquillity. The sleep stones help to bring calm into your home and evoke a feeling of relaxation when partnered with the gentle aroma of the lavender and chamomile essential oil. Dreamy!

When it comes to cleansing and keeping your skin squeaky clean Magnitone are THE brand to buy from, I've used their products for many years from the brushes to the cloths, and everything I've tried is fab. I have two top picks for you - first up is the Wipeout Limited Edition Christmas Cracker (£25.00)! This is such a great way to try out the handy little supersoft cloths - I have used them daily for a good few years and they're a staple in my cleansing routine. They're perfect for use on sensitive skin, eyes and lips, with no cleanser needed although I do use one with them. You simply wash it in your normal washing load and reuse it thousands of times! 

You can also pick up the 12 Swipes of Christmas Cracker (£25.00) which includes eco-friendly, microfibre cleansing pads that will remove even the toughest of makeup or glitter! 

Nourish London
Nourish London is a British organic skincare company offering scientifically developed, highly effective, organic, vegan & cruelty-free skincare powered by ingredients from nature. Fuelled by a passion for innovation, they combine the highest quality natural ingredients with advanced scientific bio-actives to create award-winning organic skincare for beautiful, healthy skin making them perfect for any skincare-conscious people on your Christmas list.

The Lemon & Black Pepper Handcare Duo (£25.00) is the perfect handy gift for those that adore luxury handcare. The beautifully scented skincare cleanses, softens and nourishes hands. The delicious scent comes from all-natural aromatherapy essential oils of uplifting and invigorating black pepper with a freshening and naturally antibacterial lemon twist. Hands won't just feel wonderfully clean and fresh, they'll be safely sanitised too.

The Geranium & Jasmine Body Duo (£20.00) is one of their new giftsets packed with deeply nourishing and naturally protective shea butter and trehalose and firming prickly pear and brown algae for smoother, radiant skin. Beautifully packaged in fully recyclable materials and presented in a recyclable card gift box, this tranquil Body Duo is the perfect gift to give or to keep!

Yardley has specialised in cosmetics, fragrances and toiletry products since 1770 so they're kinda a classic brand to see at Christmas - I know I've opened many luxury soap gifts over the years. There are a plethora of gift sets from Yardley available from Boots UK this year and I've picked out my two favourites. 

The Moisturising Body Mist Collection (£10.00) is a great set for all ages - featuring a collection of mists including Bluebell & Sweetpea, Fressia & Bergamot and Magnolia & Fig. Ideal for popping into a handbag to freshen up anytime, day or night. The English Rose Bath & Body Collection (£16.00) is a really lovely set of products housed in a rose print zip bag. Inside you'll find Luxury Body Wash, Silky Smooth Body Lotion and Hand Cream and Moisturising Body Mist, all infused with Yardley London's English Rose fragrance.

Created with the empowering mission to make your daily beauty routine easier, Beautifect has a plethora of products that you'll want to get your hands on. The Beautifect Box is firmly on my own wishlist but for now, I'll focus on applying tools!

The Beautifect Complete Blush Collection (£79.00) features eight pro-level brush heads to elevate your makeup. Crafted with a luxe matte gold finish; each brush is densely filled with soft premium quality vegan bristles to seamlessly apply and blend all formulas. The length has been ergonomically designed to fit neatly into your hand and includes their unique signature weighted ends to aid the correct pressure for an airbrushed application.

Next (and oh boy is it good!) is the Beautifect Pod with Blender (£18.95) - the compact and lightweight travel pod has a beautiful rose gold design and a seamless swivel front, perforated ventilation holes for optimum aeration. The blender itself is excellent, I adore the way it works with liquid foundation!

Floral Street was a new fragrance brand to me this year - created by Michelle Feeney their mission is to bring fine fragrance to the modern woman - so that she might build an entire fragrance wardrobe that can express the many facets of who she is. I spent a virtual evening with the brand earlier in the year and found the background, their stance on eco-responsibility and the way they want to change fragrance inspiring.

Arizona Bloom eau de parfum (£64.00) is my favourite of the fragrances available. It's a dry, floral amber - freedom and happiness in a bottle...think endless skies and eternal sunshine. A sprinkling of Balinese coconut meets salted musk with a shot of Madagascan black pepper. It is truly unforgettable.

Versace Fragrances
A little something for him, Versace Dylan Blue Pour Homme (£59.99) is described as the essence of the Versace Man today - full of character, individuality and charisma. 

Highly distinctive with a fragrant woody aroma based on the unique olfactory properties of precious natural ingredients and the latest generation of molecules; Its new and exquisite qualities of natural citrus, bergamot and grapefruit combine with modern hints of a fig leaf to give an incisive, Mediterranean freshness.

It's housed in the most beautiful dark blue glass bottle - perfect!

If there is one brand that creates products that are meant to be gifted to friends and loved ones, it's Elizabeth Scarlett and if you haven't heard of them before then you are in for a treat! I've bought a number of sleep masks and pouches from them over the years and they've just launched some beautiful new products for Christmas. 

The Sun Goddess Wash Bag (£40.00) is one of my top picks, especially for travelling. Featuring an elegant zip tassel, handy inner pockets, and a waterproof lining, the wash bag is a must-have for any skincare guru, perfect for keeping your products organised while travelling or looking pretty on your bathroom shelf. 

The products wear really well, you can hand wash them if you spill anything on them and aren't they just beautiful!

Fabulous hair for the festive season is exactly what I need so the Beachwaver is my go-to hair tool to achieve that, it's a new UK launch too! The Beachwaver Malibu Sunrise Rotating Curling Iron (£119.00) is going to change how you curl your hair, especially if you're me and terrible at it. 

The curling iron has a 1" barrel width and ergonomic handle and you just need to use the handy buttons that dual rotates the iron meaning you can create any curl you desire. There are three heat settings too, I prefer using medium heat and it creates a really nice finish that holds. 

Beachwaver has really changed how I style my hair and it's available in so many gorgeous colourways. 

South Korean skincare is something I love exploring so I just knew this would be perfect for my big beauty Christmas gift guide. Cute, covetable and ultra-efficacious, the sorbet-hued treatments are laced with results-driven actives that are both hardworking and gentle

Glow Recipe Hey You, You're A Bright Light (£44.00) is a brilliant way to try some of the Guava range of products. Optimised with a 10% encapsulated vitamin C complex and 3% niacinamide blend to brighten dark circles and even tone, the Guava Vitamin C Bright-Eye Gel Cream cheats the look of a good night's sleep. Following on with the heavy-hitting formula that targets dark spots and hyperpigmentation before, during and after formation, the Guava Vitamin C + Ferulic Dark Spot Serum unveils an enviably radiant complexion rid of dare-to-stay dark marks. Finally, seal your glowiness in with the Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream, a deliciously lightweight moisturiser that locks in hydration to ensure plump, bouncy and healthy skin with a dewy glow. 

Perfect right?!

Ole Henriksen
With an effervescent optimism for life that allows you to glow from the inside out, the Ole Henriksen skincare collection is built on a product philosophy of exfoliating, treating and soothing, which originated in Ole's Beverly Hills spa helping to bring transformative results to clients all over the world.

Each product in the line from easy daily regimens to professional-strength systems combines potent actives, natural botanicals and essential fatty acids which are then colour-coded making it super easy to decide on what range would be best for your skin. The Ole Henriksen The Smooth Search Scrub & Moisturiser Duo (£21.60) is the perfect starter set for bright and smooth skin. Exfoliate with Lemonade Smoothing Scrub then follow with C-Rush Brightening Gel Cream to instantly brighten, firm and hydrate all day. 

When it comes to premium bath products, Olverum has always been pretty high up there for me. Their luxurious bath oil is one of my ultimate treats and in recent weeks they've launched a new body cleanser which is the perfect treat for underneath the Christmas tree. The Olverum Body Cleanser (£26.50) is soap and sulphate free and features their innovative formulation which has been in development for five years. 

The unique complex of five mild surfactants creates a luxurious lather to cleanse effectively while respecting barrier function to leave skin comfortable. Fragranced with the aromatic blend of essential oils synonymous with their iconic Bath Oil, it helps to ease stress and relax tension in the mind and body. Crafted with over 90% natural origin ingredients, this product is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. It lathers beautifully and feels super soft on the skin and that well-known Olverum scent lingers for hours afterwards. It's luxury bathing at its best. 

Biossance has been one of my favourite skincare discoveries over the last year and each Christmas they release the most wonderful selection of gifts. The Glow Forth & Be Bright (£19.99) set is packed with two of their best-sellers to give you the ultimate holiday glow with hydration-packed and radiance-enhancing formulas for your everyday skincare routine. 

The Squalane + Omega Repiar Cream deeply nourishes and strengthens the skin's moisture barrier while Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil brightens, firms and hydrates. Two of my favourite products I've been using this year from the brand! 

If I ever have my hair up (it's pretty rare) it's usually held up with a silk scrunchie - they're just THE best product for hair! The Medusa Nights Holiday Ornament (£25.00) is such a great way to try the brand and it'll look sparkling on someone's Christmas tree too. 

Slipsilk is specially-commissioned and made to the brand's exact standards, developed and refined over ten years to provide the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability. They use the highest grade (6A) long fibre mulberry silk, with a thickness of 22 momme and enforce the strictest quality guidelines, including non-toxic dyes. 

And there we have it... This year's BIG beauty gift guide!
