Beauty Bible's Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide: Skincare


The gift of great skin is probably one of the greatest anyone can bestow on a friend or family member. These are ranges we rate hugely ourselves (as do our Beauty Bible testers), collated into skincare kits we'd be thrilled to find under the tree. No greater recommendation, we reckon. Liz Earle Superskin Botanical All Stars 

As serious Superskin fans, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without one of Liz Earle's brilliant gift sets. There's almost an overwhelming choice, but this is a terrific all-rounder with Superskin Moisturser, Superskin Concentrate rollerball, Cleanse & Polish and Instant Boost Skin Tonic. A total treat for a Liz Earle newbie or devotee who needs their stock replenishing.

ESPA Optimal Skin CollectionESPA The Optimal Skin Collection

This is actually a mix of skin and body care but we love each one of these products so we had to mention it. The ProSerum works wonders on dull and dreary complexions, ProCleanser does double-duty as a face mask if left on for longer, while the Body TriSerum sinks into skin in seconds leaving parched limbs looking lovely and radiant. Gift-wrapping not entirely necessary with a beautiful box like this - though we always do!
