The Christmas countdown has begun, and while the end of year work rush is tiring us all out, let’s try to break out some festive cheer! My favourite thing about Christmas is finding the perfect pressies for all the people I love. To help you find the perfect beauty gifts, you’re going to find a few Smudged gift guides coming up in the next 2 weeks. We hope they help prevent any emotional breakdowns in the Canal Walk food court.
Today I’m tackling Secret Santa, which in my group of friends is around R100. Here we go…
LUSH Cinders Bath Bomb and Hot Toddy Shower Gel (R35 and R70 each)
This shower gel has just arrived in LUSH stores for Christmas and smells exactly like gluhwein! Delicious. Pair it with a bath bomb for extra brownie points.
LUSH Santa’s Lip Scrub (R95)
We love LUSH’s lip scrub and this Christmas edition smells like cherry cola. Nomnomnom.
The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Shower Gel (R99)
I have this in my shower at the moment and I love it! I really feel that Christmas is a time to smell like a baked good.
The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain Geisha Doll (R130)
This is a little bit over budget, but so worth it. This cute doll contains a red lip and cheek stain that is flattering on everyone. I have it and love that it gives me low maintenance red lips for hours.
Toy Nail Polish in Ultraviolet Nebula Gravity Chaos (R99 from Spree)
House of Holland Ho Ho Ho Nail Set (R99, Clicks)
Everyone has that one kitschy friend who wants to wear all the Christmas-themed attire. I am that friend, and I really hope someone buys these for me.
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless (R130, but on 2 for 1 special at the moment!)
I think every beauty blogger in the world is a fan of these balms. I love this purple shade, but there are lots of neutral options for your less daring friends.
Toy Neon Punk Nail Art Set (R105, Spree)
Something fun for your nail art loving bestie.
27 Pinkx Lipstick Stand (R80, Spree)
If you know a lipstick addict, then here’s your perfect present. They’ll get such joy from showing off their MAC reds collection (Jodi I’m looking at you).
Have a great week lovelies!
