All we want for Christmas

Tuesday, 13 December 2016

We’ve been a bit naughty but a lot nice this year, so here’s our little list of what we’d like to give or receive this festive season.


There’s nothing better than the gift of great hair. Tangle Teezer Salon Elite Candi Cane, R240 uses a two-tiered teeth system technology to detangle with ease. It’s the hairbrush professionals use to untangle knots with minimum fuss, breakage and damage, leaving hair detangled, soft and shiny.

You can’t go wrong with a special little luxurious something from Crabtree & Evelyn. This gorgeous tin contains two 25g creams: Pomegranate, Argan and Grapeseed Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy and La Source Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy (R320).

We bet the La-Tweez Illuminating Tweezers (R285) would make short work of even Santa’s unruly brows. Crafted from the finest stainless steel and sporting a built-in LED light which helps you get to those hard to see hairs. Did we mention it comes with its own chic little carrying case with a built-in magnifying mirror?

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream (R265) is already a cult favourite, but nothing makes us happier than their limited edition packaging. We heart it!

When it comes to stressing out our skin, the holiday season is up there at the top of the list – from travel chaos to hosting the in-laws. So we’re armed and prepared with our organic esse skincare Trial Pack under the tree for ourselves. The little wooden chest contains a mini Cream Cleanser, Gel Cleanser, Toner, Deep Moisturiser and a Cocoa Exfoliator (R199).

When we finally put up our feet for the holidays, we plan on pampering them with a little figgy treat in the form of LCN Foot Cream Fig 30ml (R115). This nourishing and moisturising cream from their Lovely Christmas World range makes for the perfect beauty stocking filler.

Last but not least on our wish list were asking Father Christmas to turn back the clock just a little with a bottle of Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Foundation SPF30 (R650). It’s a liquid foundation that feels beautifully lightweight on the skin whilst delivering light to medium coverage with a naturally luminous finish. It’s infused with a potent antioxidant Idebenone Complex and a host of anti-ageing ingredients and comes in eight shades.

Holding thumbs he gets our list in time.

We’ve made our list, we’ve checked it twice. Everything on it is super nice!

    Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is a must-have product at home, work and even in kids school bags. It’s a great multi-purpose cream that soothes, smooths, hydrates and protects. The limited edition packaging is GORGEOUS!
