Christmas Countdown Day 7: Our ‘A Beautiful World’ Christmas Stocking (and WIN a Lumiere d’Opale!)

ABW Christmas Stocking

Santa said he’d grant us 5 beauty wishes so we went straight to A Beautiful World to scout out our Christmas 2013 ‘winter beauty stash’ and came up with this “Fab Five”! All of which will keep you glowing gorgeous with two capital “Gs” all season long and well into the New Year, too.

1. MU London’s White Chocolate Elbow, Knee, Heel Cream

Tap open your Terry’s Chocolate Orange now, because you’ll want to eat MU London’s chocolately concoction created for those niggly little dry patches that (usually) need a bit of extra love.  If White Toblerone came in the form of a super rich skin saviour, this would be it.


Your Christmas chocolate fix for skin

2. Lumiere d’Opale – Shimmering Body Oil

Shimmer your way through Christmas and well into 2014 with Lumiere d’Opale’s tres luxe golden body oil. We’re calling it winter 2013’s best little black dress ‘beauty accessory’ and it boosts cell renewal, too.

If you like the look of this you’ll want to treat yourself before Christmas, before it sells out because you’ll only find it at ABW in the UK. Want to try your luck at winning one? ABW have 10 of these golden glow bottles to give away. (See below!)

3. Yarok – Feed Your Shine

Arguably one of the best beauty editor “food-for-hair” finds of 2013, we’ve taken a bit of a shine to Yarok. Put it this way, the only thing shining brighter than your glossy new locks will be the star on the Christmas tree.


4. Butter London – Black Night

On The Night Before Christmas guess what we’ll be wearing…? This winter’s darkest, most decadent nail sparkle. Butter London’s dark dazzler is a gorgeous glitter fusion containing black, pink, blue, and silver suspended in a black base.

Uh oh! Winter 2013’s most decadent 3-Free Nail Laquer?


5. Dahliana Naturals – Overnight Fruit Lift

Moisturiser, mask, collagen booster, exfoliator?  Or all four?  If you’ve been to three too many late parties (already) you may need an Overnight Fruit Lift –  this season’s cleverest multi-tasker.

Oh…did we mention the hamper?

If you’ve been really good this year (erm..?) Santa might need some extra space on that sleigh. Feast your eyes on this limited edition A Beautiful World Christmas Hamper (£100) NOW because ‘once they’re gone they’re gone’ as they say (and they’re already showing “LOW STOCK” on the website so chances are they won’t be around for long).
