8 Beauty Influencers Reveal What’s On Their Wishlist This Festive Season

It’s no secret that this year has been like no other but the festive season is officially upon us and we can probably all agree that we’re in serious need of some joy! So whether you’re buying for a loved one or looking for inspiration for your own Christmas wishlist, we asked eight beauty influencers what they’re hoping to receive under the tree this year…

The Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is an icon and the rose version is such a treat. This set also comes with the new rose oil, which is an amazing skin booster.

Soft Glam is one of my favourite ABH palettes and this mini one offers up the most wearable shades in an easy to manage edit.

I love this hydrating mask from Aurelia, and this pretty set comes with three bamboo muslins for perfect skin pampering.

@fleurdeforce

A forever favourite of mine for applying my foundation (always damp!) but something I don’t replace often enough… there’s nothing better than a brand new beautyblender (or three!)

I’m totally addicted to silk scrunchies – they are so much less damaging for you hair and look cute too. I love the colours in this set.

My absolute favourite beauty discovery of 2020. I’m an absolute convert to the face halo for makeup removal. You have to try them to believe it… but always go for the ‘pro’ black versions as you can’t see the mascara stains!

I have an entire cupboard dedicated to home fragrance. I love to light the fire and all my candles with a good book in the evenings and Elemis is a big favourite of mine. 

I like my skincare to be really targeted and science-backed whilst also not laden with chemicals so Oskia is an instant go-to for me. I’ve used their cleanser for years and it never fails to deliver. 

I’ve been a massive Neom fan since its launch so will happily receive anything from them for Christmas! But I’ve found that I genuinely sleep deeper when I use this magnesium body butter. We’re all generally pretty magnesium deficient and applying it topically is the quickest way to get it into our system so I feel like it’s a bit of a wellness treat as well as beauty.

I’m a huge Spectrum fan, I love Hannah and Sophie who founded the brand and know first-hand the care that goes into every collection. This has to be my favourite ever brush set, the green is just the most beautiful, unique colour. Often brush sets are filled with a selection of brushes you won’t use, not this one though. This has everything you need to do a full face and they’ll never get lost in your makeup bag.

Briogeo is one of those brands that all beauty editors are obsessed with and it’s great for curly/coily hair types, as well as my lanky hair. If, like me, you’ve become a bit hair obsessed this year, this set is all you need for your Sunday night self-care ritual. The micro-exfoliating shampoo is a deep cleanse for your hair, removing product and mineral build up (if you live in a hard water area you’ll know what I’m talking about), while the deep conditioning mask will smooth and hydrate your parched ends.

This is one of those products I’ve lusted after for years, but still for some strange reason, don’t own. It’s currently at the top of my list as I just interviewed the incredible @nikki_makeup and she said this was the key product needed to recreate her iconic feathery brows. Actually, I don’t know if I can wait till Christmas, I might just buy it now.

@chloeburcham

The Elemis Frangipani fragrance is one of my all time favourites. This set comes with the body oil, hand balm (a must!) and shower oil so you can get a triple dose of fragrance, every single day!

I’ve only just discovered the Coco & Eve tan (I know, I know) but it’s quickly solidified its place into one of my all time tanning must haves. This four-piece set contains everything you need for glowing head-to-toe skin.

I love to have a fancy soap and hand balm in my kitchen and this Aesop duo is the best. It’s woody, fresh and masculine – plus the bottles are huuuge so they last for ages!

Although candles have a bit of a bad rep for being an impersonal present, if you know me, you know that few gifts would make me happier. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas if there wasn’t a candle in my stocking… Featuring neroli, mimosa, and lemon, Neom’s Happiness Candle sounds right up my street.

I live and die by PSA Skin’s serums – I get through them like they’re bottled tap water and not £30+ per bottle… So, considering my obsession, it’s easy to see why I freaked out when I saw that the brand had launched it’s first cleanser.  There’s a 100% chance this will be on my Christmas list this year.

Like many people, between lockdown and WFH, I’ve not worn a lot of makeup this year. In fact I’d go as far as to say that I definitely need to clear out and replace 90% of what’s in my makeup bag since it hasn’t seen a lot of action since March… I’d love to restock it with all things Nudestix, so I’d kick things off with Nudies Bronze in Beach Babe.

What more could a babe ask for? Frank Body’s Rich Exfoliating Coffee Scrub leaves skin soft while Isle of Paradise’s Medium Self-Tanning Water gives skin a healthy ‘I have slept for two weeks’ style glow – plus the gift bag alone is the perfect size for keeping cosmetics organised. I am obsessed.

I love how dewy my skin looks when this is incorporated into my routine, this also is a great hydrating weapon for skin that loves a touch of self-tan on it. 

Hands down the best moisturiser I’ve ever used in my life. It’s lightweight, non-sticky, and leaves skin with a glow that literally turns heads. It’s 100% worth the spend.

@lottietomlinson

These are the perfect stocking filler and work for everyone from total tan newbies to skincare fanatics. Just mix a few drops with your existing skincare or bodycare and you’ll have a perfect natural glow. 

I’m obsessed with BEAUTY BAY’s palettes – they’ve become a real staple in my daily makeup routine. This would the perfect starter palette for anyone wanting to start their makeup collection. 

This set would be such a nice gift – it’s great for looking after your skin and hair as well as looking cute.
