Bare Minerals Best in Clean Beauty Gift Set
Grace says: “Having recently spent (a sinful) fortune on AlumierMD skincare, I decided it’s time for me to properly invest in mineral make-up too. After all, why pay so much to clear my pores only to clog them up again? I’m asking Santa for this ‘Best in Clean Beauty’ gift set from BareMinerals. It has some of my go-to products (such as the Mineral Veil Finishing Powder and Prime Time Original Foundation Primer), plus a variety of lip products and highlighter. It’s pricey at €89 – but I’m on the good list and deserve it.”

La Prairie Skin Caviar Lifting and Firming Rituals Set
Aisling says: “I decided to go ALL OUT and just put it up to Santa to come up with the goods this year. He won’t, of course, because hello – €1,300 nearly – but if I’m asking Santa and the universe for things, it might as well be La Prairie. If I was independently wealthy and ‘took’ Christmas in Courchevel or something like that, I would absolutely want this skincare gift set in tow. I would need to revitalise my post-skiing skin, ready myself for a lazy January lunch in Claridge’s and be the TALK of whatever Whatsapp group I’m being excluded from at the time. I’ve invented an alternate world here as you can see, where myself and this glorious skincare set would live happily ever after. With PERFECT skin.”
