Clarins Christmas Crackers

These always bring joy to the women at a Christmas table (just choose something in the same colour spectrum for the male guests - or check out Clarins's own men's crackers). This year, they're all dressed up in gold kraft paper with hand-tied bows, and feature minis of Clarins classics including Beauty Flash Balm and Nail Treatment Cream.

We can almost hear the 'oooohs' over the turkey (and visualise the unseemly scrabble as the mini-mascara flies across the room…)
