I absolutely love gifting season, and love spending time picking out the perfect gift for friends and family, so gift guide posts are some of my favourites to read at this time for year for some great inspiration (you can check out my gift guide for girls here!). That being said, its probably no surprise that my blog content tends to revolve around gifting throughout December, and today is no exception!
One of my favourite skincare brands, Temple Spa, kindly sent me a selection of some of their Christmas gifts, and they are absolutely beautiful (So beautiful I can’t decide whether to gift them or keep them for myself!). If you haven’t heard of the brand before, you can see my rave review of Temple Spa skincare products here – they completely saved my skin when I was suffering from the acne outbreak from hell, and have kept the break outs at bay ever since. They also produce some stunning make up products too, as well as bath and body goodies for ultimate pamper treat.
‘DO NOT DISTURB’ Press Pause Collection – £40.00 – Temple Spa*
First up in the gifting collection I received is the stunning ‘Do Not Disturb’ Press Pause Collection – probably my favourite of all! This would make the perfect gift for someone who leads a busy life, works a stressful job or just needs to take some time out for themselves! The idea behind this set, is that its a full pampering experience for all the senses and all of the body. In the set you receive Quietude – a dreamy spray, perfect for pillows or just as a relaxing room spray, Drift Away – a bath and massage oil, Be Calm – a super luxurious face mask, Duvet – a lovely comforting body cream, and Repose – an aromatherapy resting cream.
This whole set just oozes luxury, and I can think of lots of people who would absolutely love this for a spa experience at home!
‘EASY ON THE EYE’ All Inclusive Palette – £30.00
‘A STROKE OF GENIUS’ Serum Mascara – £20.00 – Temple Spa*
Next up is the beautiful ‘Easy On The Eye’ eyeshadow palette filled with five stunning neutral shades to suit a wide range of skin tones. Perfect for day-to-day wear, these velvety soft shadows make a lovely gift for the make-up lovers out there, and presented in a gorgeous gift box that makes them even more luxurious. These are the kind of shades that everyone needs in their collection to create a really nice subtle smokey look, and the handy palette size is great for the girl who’s always on the go!
To compliment the shadows, there’s also the dreamy ‘A Stroke of Genius’ serum mascara, which I actually already use myself. Its got the be up there with my favourite mascaras as it looks so natural on the lashes, doesn’t clump and is really easy to build up when you want more of a dramatic, defined look. I love the metallic packaging as well – fancy!
‘THE SKIN SPECIALIST’ Skin Therapy Hero Collection – £50.00 – Temple Spa*
Finally we’ve got this Skin Specialist Hero Collection, which is an absolute dream! This cosmetics bag is filled with 8 miniatures of some of Temple Spa’s very best skincare products, making it a great gift for someone who wants to indulge their skin to an at-home facial. I spend a lot of time travelling for work, so a bag of my favourite products in mini versions would be so handy!
Here you get everything you need for a full skincare routine, from make up removal and exfoliation, to cleansing and toning, right through to moisturising and eye creams. The full works!
Thank you so much to Temple Spa for these lovely gifts! Hopefully these will have inspired you if you’re feeling a little stuck with what to treat someone to this Christmas, or maybe you’ve spied something here you’d love to try yourself!
