December: Beauty Talks Q + A

Christmas Beauty Talks: Q&A

This December we’re channelling Christmas beauty talks. A question and answer guide gathered together that feature our favourite beauty Christmas gifts. With luxury treats from A’kin and skinSense, you’re sure to be spoilt for choice.

Q: What do you recommend as a skin and beard gift kit as a Christmas gift?

A: We have the perfect gift for a male partner looking to tend to his beard night and day. A’kin’s Limited Edition Rosehip Oil will tick all the boxes. With regular use this oil keeps facial hair in tip-top shape. Designed as a multi-purpose product, we found that it’s great on sore, dry skin but also encourages a well-groomed, healthy looking beard.

Q: Are there any gift ideas that contain Retinol?

A: Looking to gift mum? A skincare secret ingredient for mature skin is Retinol. Formulated with a highly active, double encapsulation of pure Retinol, skinSense’s concentrated serum is the perfect match. Its pipette applicator is a cult favourite for those wanting to wage war against fine lines and wrinkles.

Q: What’s your best advice for getting Christmas party ready?

A: Beauty primers are a must have for any occasion that calls for party make-up. We like to use Ultrasun’s Face SPF30 to prep and prime our skin within a matter of minutes.

It’s key that the Face SPF30 MUST go on before anything else! Instead of sitting on the skin’s surface, Ultrasun sinks in for a dewy, flawless primed look. For a party-perfect cheek hit, we love to use Genie’s Cashmere Blush to create a beautiful definition on each cheek. Depending on your party jewellery look, each shade compliments any skin tone. We like to apply on the apple of the cheeks and in the corner of the eyes to add an extra pop of colour to bring attention to the eyes.

Q: If you had to choose one gift set to receive this Christmas, what would it be and why?

A: We are obsessed with A’kin’s Moisture Rich Trio that combines the perfect combination of products to create a moisture rich miracle on the face. Presented in a clean, pristine gift box, it’s everything you need to cleanse, tone, and nourish your skin.

Q: What is the perfect for her for under £20 Christmas gift?

A: If you’re looking for a gift for under £20, our collection of Real Techniques brushes are perfect for gifting her this Christmas! Add an instant element of sophistication to your make-up bag with a 3 piece Duo Fibre Collection. This set includes 3 brushes which release a lighter amount of product for a buildable, mistake-proof make-up application.

Q: What’s your favourite scent to wear at Christmas?

A: Christmas is all about the party season so no doubt you’ll be in search of a beautiful scent to wear to your seasonal parties. Boasting a beautiful combination of exciting yet gentle aromas, Judith Williams’ Live Your Dream EDP enchants and spreads a warm sensuality of elegence.
