When it comes to Christmas gifts, some of the most luxurious on the market have to be the skincare gift sets. With brands going above and beyond to create the most coveted gift sets and skincare products this season, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites to help inspire you.
Sunday Riley Good Genes and Luna skincare products – We’ll be running a full review on these products next week as we are so impressed by them, but we couldn’t have a Christmas gift guide for skincare without including them. Say hello to Good Genes and Luna from Sunday Riley. These two wonder products may be high-end beauty buys but they will revolutionise your skincare routine and would make a luxurious gift for someone special.
Sunday Riley ‘Luna’ Sleeping Night Oil – This oil is something truly luxurious to add to your skincare regime. It is a little daunting at first glance due to its bright blue appearance, but don’t let that deter you! Simply massage a few drops into your skin a little while before bed and your skin will definitely thank you for it in the morning! This is a glorious treat to keep your face feeling and looking beautiful. Priced at £85 from various department stores and retailers including www.cultbeauty.co.uk.
Sunday Riley ‘Good Genes’ lactic acid treatment – You can use this after ‘Luna’ night oil or on its own. We found using the two together to be the most effective and saw results after just a few days! This is a real gem of a skincare product and would make the perfect gift for mum, best friend or anyone special who might not usually think to treat themselves. Good Genes is multi-tasking under moisturiser treatment and mask that smooths, refines, clarifies and brightens, whilst improving your skin’s thickness and elasticity. Priced at £85 – Available from various department stores and www.cultbeauty.co.uk.
MOA – Magic Organic Apothecary – This is a brand that we have fallen head over heels with. Everything from the packaging to the products themselves is just beautiful. These products are perfect for those who want quality skincare with a magical twist. The MOA signature herb, organic yarrow, is grown in Somerset.
The seeds are even sown by hand, at the farm where it is grown. They are cruelty free certified and the pretty packaging comes from sustainable sources, mostly made in the UK and printed with vegetable based inks. Nature, magic and folklore inspire MOA and they celebrate this in their products, marketing and packaging.
Creative Director Charlie Fowler illustrates the drawings by hand and combines them with vintage apothecary inspired design, so it makes their style pretty unique. The Magic Organic Apothecary potions are developed with lots of imagination and care. They are only ready to sell them when they are truly smitten with the product, and happy that it is both therapeutic and effective. And lastly, a sprinkling of magic makes them very special too!

The Body Shop Oils of Life Gift Set – One of our favourite skincare collections from The Body Shop is their Oils of Life range. We reviewed the collection here last year, and have been obsessed with the products ever since. This gift set is absolutely beautifully presented. A white and gold gift box is tied with a gorgeous gold ribbon.
Open the box to reveal two of the best loved Oils of Life products, the facial oil and revitalising cream. These both work like an absolute dream and are perfect for keeping your skin hydrated during the colder winter months. They would make a perfect Christmas gift for women of all ages and at £40 it won’t break the bank either. Find it online at www.thebodyshop.com.
