Christmas is only just around the corner and thus far limited edition and value added Christmas gift packs are making their way to the shelves in-store and online to help you make Christmas giving a lot easier! I’ve compiled some of my favourite Christmas beauty buys here and have also discovered some newly launched gift packs which I will share with you in this post.

  1. I love seeing all of the different Christmas packs that come out! It's so exciting!

    1. The packaging and the fact that most are limited edition and/or value added packs always gets eye!

  2. I love the look of philosophy but I find it a bit too expensive for what it is!
