Get festive with us! We review the Clicks Festive Beauty Box (and you can save big on your favourite products) 1

A few times per year, Clicks curates a box filled with beauty must-haves, and this festive season, their Festive Beauty Box is designed to get everyone ready for the upcoming celebrations. From foot care to body care, summer sun-kissed makeup to glowing skin essentials, Clicks has got it all covered.

Clicks is your one-stop destination for all beauty products this festive season. Their Festive Beauty Box is carefully curated to enhance the summer feels, and while the box is not for sale, every single item featured in it can be purchased at a Clicks store near you, or on www.clicks.co.za.

And, to make things even sweeter… Clicks is currently hosting their Summer Beauty Fair, where you can discover a wide range of products to enhance your beauty routine and prepare for the festivities (plus enjoy exclusive discounts!). Specials are valid until 24 December, so now is the time to stock up on your favourites (or to indulge in something new you’ve been eyeing).

Our editor has been putting the various products in the Clicks Festive Beauty Box to the test – here’s why she agrees that it’s the perfect combo for a beautiful festive season:

“Because our festive season runs through summer, the festive beauty trends you see in SA are far different to the beauty trends we see internationally. I love spending the festive season by the beach, and this means that my festive beauty regime is heavily focused on sun protection, hydration and protection.

I was thrilled to put the carefully curated items in the Clicks Festive Beauty Box to the test, as it’s not only given me some insight on how to adjust my regime for the upcoming season, but it’s also introduced me to some new products I haven’t tried before. Let’s get stuck in – here are the items I tested:

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Butter
Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a deep love for everything produced by The Body Shop, and their body butters are a staple in my bathroom cupboard. This fresh, citrusy variant is perfect for warmer weather and I love that it offers an intense moisture boost as my skin tends to get dry when I spend time outdoors.

Hada Labo Tokyo Sun Face Cream SPF 50
Sunscreen is my number one summer beauty product, and I absolutely love this formula! Hada Labo Tokyo is known for their ultra-hydrating moisturisers and this SPF incorporates their patented ingredient, Super Hyaluronic Acid, for a formula that offers effective hydration while protecting from UV rays. It melts into the skin, doesn’t leave a white cast and feels invisible – no oily or sticky residue in sight.

Playgirl Bliss Body Wash
I prefer shower gels over cakes of soap, especially in summer, and this formula surprised me. It has a gorgeous floral fragrance that’s invigorating yet refreshing, and it works up a lovely lather that doesn’t dry out my skin. I always associate Playgirl with fragrance and makeup, so it was lovely to try something new – it’s a winner!

Yardley Gorgeous In Love Eau de Parfum
Warm, sensual and inviting, this feminine fragrance is the perfect scent for family get togethers, a festive date or a night out. I love the combination of fruity, floral and musky notes and because it’s an eau de parfum, it lasts on the skin.

Oh So Heavenly Moonlight Dreams Perfume Mist
This is the perfect product to keep in your gym bag or beach bag for an instant refresh when you’re out and about. It has beautiful feminine top notes of jasmine, a heart of soft cashmere and base notes of sweet amber. It’s the perfect summer pick-me-up!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Leave-In Conditioner
With the onset of summer (and increased humidity) often comes the onset of frizz… This leave-in spray is the answer to dry, damaged and frizzy hair. It contains nourishing argan, coconut and moringa oils to help detangle hair, repair dryness and minimize frizz.

NIVEA Clear Up Deep Pore Cleanser
During summer, our skin produces more oil, which increases our risk of breaking out. To avoid blemishes and blackheads, it’s important to use a cleanser like this one which contains spot-busting salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid (for moisture) and 99% pure sea salt, which lessens spot-causing bacteria. This clever cleanser also help rebalance the skin and manage oil production for a clear, shine-free complexion.

NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Luminous 630 Anti Dark Marks Anti-Age & Spot Serum
I love that this serum targets both ageing and uneven skin tone simultaneously. Designed to reduce the appearance of dark marks, it also contains a collagen booster which stimulates the skin to produce its own collagen, restoring volume and filling lines. It has a lovely texture and is an effective option for ageing skins with uneven skin tone.

NIVEA Expert Lift Cellular 3-Zone Lifting Serum
This anti-ageing serum contains bakuchiol, the plant-based alternative to retinol that everyone is talking about. It targets the face, neck and décolleté to visibly lift, reduce the depth of lines, tighten and firm skin. It has a lovely lightweight formula that melts into skin effortlessly, leaving it looking smoother, more defined and more elastic.  

Oh So Heavenly 5 Days of Superfood Face Care Daily Face Mask Glow Kit
I simply adore this– a kit containing five face masks, one for each day of the week. I love that the back of the box gives guidance as to which mask to use on which day and why, so that you can reap the full benefits of the various ingredients. This is a great kit for when you have a few days leading up to a big event and I highly recommend it as a stocking filler this festive season.

wet n wild Megalast Lock ‘n’ Shine Lip Color + Gloss
If you want high colour payoff with a high gloss finish, you’re going to love this product. It’s dual ended, with a bold liquid lip colour on the one end and a clear gloss on the other. You simply apply the colour side first, and then lock it in with the glossy side. The result? High shine and long-lasting colour. Plus, the formula is infused with jojoba oil, passionfruit seed oil and vitamin E acetate to leave your lips soft, moisturised and radiant.

Oh So Heavenly Sole Retreat Exfoliating Foot Peel Treatment
If your feet are rough or dry post-winter, this is the product you’ve been waiting for! Think of it as a peel for your feet, in the comfort of your home. You simply wear the booties for around two hours, and after about a week your feet peel (like literally peel – plan this well in advance if you have a special occasion coming up!), but the results are amazing – soft, baby-smooth skin and not a dry patch in sight.

7th Heaven Nutriactive Vitamin C Brightening and Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Serum Capsule Sheet Mask
Who doesn’t love a sheet mask?! These handy masks from 7th Heaven contain naturally-derived ingredients and are infused with microbiome-friendly amino acids to help improve the health, clarity and radiance of the skin. They’re the perfect size to pop in your overnight bag or handbag and go to work in just seven minutes.

Bioderma Pigmentbio Foaming Cream Brightening Cleanser
If you’re prone to dark marks and uneven skin tone, this is a great cleanser to add to your regime. It exfoliates the skin gently, yet effectively, thanks to AHAs, and contains active ingredients designed to help minimise the appearance of existing dark marks and keep them from reappearing. Plus, what’s really great about it, is that it’s suitable for sensitive skin.

Clicks MyEarth Corn Starch Detangling Brush
Are all hairbrushes created equal? Absolutely not, and they’re a big culprit when it comes to the irresponsible use of plastic. This brush is made from eco-friendly plant-based bioplastic, which is a sustainable material and a renewable source. The flexible bristles make detangling a breeze and help prevent pulling, snagging and stretching of the hair.

Iwori Organic Mongongo Even Tone Body Polish and Even Tone Body Oil Balm
I love the scent of this duo, and the texture is right up my alley. The scrub is fine and gentle, yet really gets the job done. The body balm is very rich and nourishing, but it doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily or sticky. I love that these products make use of natural and organic ingredients, including mongongo, which is known to soothe and nourish dry skin.

Clicks Haircare Collection Shea Butter + Coconut Oil Scalp Soother
A dry or irritable scalp is very common, especially as we head into summer and spend more time in the sun. This product helps relieve scalp discomfort with its nourishing blend of jojoba oil, olive oil, tea tree oil, shea butter and coconut oil. These oils provide the scalp with moisture while combatting itchiness and flaking.

Oh So Heavenly Silky Care Split End Hair Cream
If you have long hair or hair that tends to split, you’ll want to try this affordable-yet-effective cream! Infused with castor oil and panthenol, it has a restoring formula that helps reduce the appearance of damage and helps repair and smooth split ends.

I’ve used a lot of beauty products, and can honestly say that this curation is off the charts! While you can’t purchase the box as a kit, you can find all the items listed here at your nearest Clicks store or online at www.clicks.co.za. You can thank me later! (wink, wink).”
