If there’s anything more obvious during Christmas it’s a gift set. For when you don’t know what to get, want a bit of everything or want something that is amazing value for money, a gift set is like a sample, but of course it’s better!
Melvita L’Or Bio gift set* £25
Founded by a natural and organic beauty-pioneer, you can be sure that the L’Or Bio set is kind to skin and whilst leaving it soft, and delicately scented with Italian bergamot and jasmine. Both Extraordinary Shower and Extraordinary Oil contain a unique blend of five rare and organic oils that are known for their enhancing properties, you can be sure that the set will leave you completely silky but not oily as it is quick to sink into the skin.
In the set: Extraordinary Oil 50ml, Extraordinary Shower 250ml

Elemis Bright Start £59
Have you noticed how the seen seemed to only be out for maybe a total of 3 weeks this year? I did. For someone who has a birthday in July I definitely noticed. Now I’m not saying this set is going to give you a vitamin D-kissed kind of look, but it definitely makes your face seem visibly brighter. And people do notice. This set literally works some magic by doing exactly what its name suggests and gives you a visibly brighter and more radiant look.
In the set: White Brightening Even Tone Cleanser 185ml (full size), White Brightening Even Tone Lotion 28ml, White Brightening Even Tone Serum 30ml (full size)
Where to buy: John Lewis
Molten Brown The Cruise Collection gift set £26
You know when you’ve had a long day and you’ve been counting down the minutes you have until you can reconnect with your bed? Now imagine you know someone else like that – you probably do. Why not treat them to something that will help them feel refreshed and relaxed at the same time, ready to face everyday
In the set: Pink Peppepod Body Wash 100ml, Pink Pepperpod Nourishing Body Lotion 100ml, White Sandalwood Body Wash100ml , White Sandalwood Nourishing Body Lotion 100ml

MoroccanOil Extra Volume mini gift set* £22
It’s not uncommon knowledge that I have a love hate relationship with my hair. Seriously there is nothing more annoying than fighting a losing battle with one’s own hair. MoroccanOil is not only restoring the love for my hair by helping to control this bad boy, but also hydrating it and giving it volume at the roots whilst actually controlling the frizz all at the same time, not to mention the shine. Miracle product? Yes. An absolute must have? Yes.
In the set: Extra Volume Shampoo 70ml, Extra Volume Conditioner 70ml, MoroccanOil Treatment Light 25ml, Detangling Comb
Where to buy: HQhair
BareMinerals Lip-Oil Balm trio £25
As you can imagine, nothing is worse than having dry lips in winter. Formulated with passion fruit seed oil and vitamin E, not only will your lips be protected from being dry and sore but you’ll also be able to have an amazing colour pop at the same time. I’m 100% bareMinerals new what they were doing when they named this trio Precious Gems and Pop of Passion.
In the set: Pink Passion Plumberry Pop, Nude Passion
Where to buy: Boots
*contains PR samples – all thoughts are my own
I’ve never been one for ‘about me’ pages so let's keep it short and sweet: I'm 25 (so I guess you could assume I'm going through a quarter-life crisis), London-based, love food, oh, and partial to a rum-based drink... or just the rum tbh.
