There are brands that really embrace the silly season, with tonnes of gifts for everyone. Clarins are one of them. This year they have a massive 18 gift sets ranging in price from a very affordable €26 to €92.
First up are the two most affordable gifts. Holiday Beautiful eyes has the iconic mascara, possibly one of the best mascara’s on the market, just ask Sue from CherrySue! with this gift you get the mascara and with it free you get a mini makeup bag and mini eye makeup remover. The makeup remover is the thing of dreams after a big night out spinning around the Christmas dance floor! Holiday Precious Lips is next up and has the same €26 price tag. In this pack you get a great red lipstick, it is a strong red but in a shade that will suit everyone and you also get an Instant Lip Comfort Oil in honey, these lip oils are so beautiful and hydrating. And then you get two shades of the Light Lip Perfector, these are a hybrid of lip balm and gloss, they work perfectly with just a nude liner for full looking healthy lips.
Clarnins really don’t like to leave anyone out and they have three gifts for the men in your lift this year. One is exclusive to Brown Thomas and Arnotts, the pic on the top right above. This set includes aRevitalising Gel and Exfoliating Cleanser, it also has a mini shower gel and eye cream and comes in a really fab leather wash bag. It has a RRP of €69. The Holiday Hydration Men set has a Super Moisture Balm and shampoo & shower gel in full size and a trial size Active hand care and Active Face Wash and again comes in the great leather wash bag. This has a RRP of €64.00. Finally for the guys is the Moisture Balm Set which has a 50ml of Moisture Balm and trial sizes of Active Face wash and Shampoo and Shower Gel and with a RRP of €38.00 is easy enough on the wallet!
Above are images of all of the other gift ideas from Clarins. There’s really some fantastic value to be had. My favourites are Blue Orchid Oil Set. If you haven’t tried this oil, it is a must for winter, your skin really drinks it all up and it doesn’t leave an oily residue, I use it at night and possibly use just a little too much but I proper love it. You get a free bag with it and a trial size hydrating mask, again this will be needed after all the late nights! Their Double Serum makes two appearances in their christmas offerings and this is no surprise. The Double Serum is deadly! It’s literally 2 serums for the price of one and both of them are fantastic!
