Budget-friendly beauty gifts for her

Happy 1st of December my beautiful readers. December is finally upon so so let’s start talking Christmas shopping, shall we? Christmas is that time of year when mastering the art of shopping on a budget is a must-have skill. I found some gorgeous beauty presents that won’t break the bank, but will surely make you a favourite in your friends/family group.

STOCKING FILLERS (UNDER £10)

L’Occitane Honey Harvest Bath Pearls* are a perfect little pressie for a bath lover. These shimmer honey-scented pearls will make any bath a pampering ritual and at £4 won’t break the bank. 



UpCircle Cinnamon & Ginger Soap Bar** will make a lovely stocking filler for anyone obsessed with sustainable beauty. All packaging is of course recyclable and completely plastic-free. Plus it smells like Christmas and costs just below £7!



Bubu Skincare* is a new sheet mask player offering a great selection of face and body masks for only £7. Affordable and great stocking filler for a skincare junkie. They come in various types for your face: from hydrating, through pollution-fighting and balancing, and even lip, hand and feet treatments so you’ll be sure to find one for yourself or a friend. Also available via Pretty Little Thing.



Seoulista* is another new brand concentrating on sheet mask treatments. I adore the packaging and the price tag (only £7.99) and they also do makeup primer sheets so there’s plenty to choose from. Also from Look Fantastic.
