CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN DAY 10: The under £20’ers
Some are under a tenner, some are under £20. Scroll down for our ‘won’t crack the piggy bank’ holiday gift shortlist full of fabulously frugal festive finds…
Above: NEW – this Frankincense and Mandarin essential oil-infused Shower Cream + Body Lotion REVIVE Frankincense & Mandarin Organic Body Collection £14.
Soapsmith’s limited edition Pudding Lane Christmas Pud £8 – rich, hydrating and scented like a spicy warm Xmas pud from one of our favourite artisan soapmakers who name every soap and bath luxury after a different London neighbourhood (side note here, try the Green Park soap if you love mint – quite possibly the freshest wake-up shower soap around).
This set sells out again and again but we found some left at Escentual.com. Beauty steal!
Philosphy’s Peppermint Stick 3-in-1 duo £18 (Lip Gloss + all in one Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath flacon). Fresh as a crisp winter’s morning, Philosophy have teamed up their high shine mint lip gloss with a get-you-out-of-bed-on-a-Monday-morning shower gel.
While we’re busy stuffing the turkey as well as ourselves over the holidays, we mustn’t forget to feed the birds who find it harder to find food in extreme winter weather conditions – particularly when the ground’s covered in a big sheet of snow. And if you’re larder’s overflowing, there’s no better time than this week to put aside some essentials and festive treats for those who are struggling – take some supplies to a food bank, or find a local charity who’ll distribute your food to those who need it (more). The best gift at Christmas is being able to give. Win-win.
Hotel Chocolate Pink Champagne Truffles £10 (daahling!)
And last but not least, rounding up our under £20 round-up is….?
We don’t say OMG that much…(but OMG?!) Anna Sui’s divine, richly pigmented and totally diverse eye palette is normally £28 pretty much everywhere else we looked – but you’ll find it for a very festive £14 – spotted today at Escentual.com.
