The Beauty Insider:

Pampering beauty gifts

Finding the perfect present is hard enough at the best of times, but what do you buy someone who seemingly has it all? Luckily, we have it covered with our top 10 luxurious treats every beauty buff will love. 

Jo Malone London - Pomegranate Noir Diffuser and Cologne 


Jo Malone London – Pomegranate Noir Collection

If there's a sure-fire, can't-mess-up beauty gift in this world, we think Jo Malone’s Pomegranate Collection is it. We can’t work out what we love more: the iconic monochrome packaging or the scent – a warming combination of pomegranate, pink pepper and spicy woods. Either way, any beauty fan would be thrilled to receive this.


Hourglass – exclusive ‘I Love’ lipstick

Can a woman have too many lipsticks? Nope. And as far as long-wearing and non-drying colour goes, nothing beats Hourglass’ Confessions lipsticks. We love all the colours, but this vibrant pink in particular elicits a happy mood and is sure to earn dozens of compliments. 


Penhaligon's – The Ingénue Cousin Flora

Who wouldn’t love a fabulous new perfume – especially when it’s from Penhaligon’s, the masters of British perfumery. The latest addition to the brand’s Portraits line-up boasts a warming blend of musk, citrus and amber while the charming golden bird cap will take pride of place on any dressing table.


La Mer – Hand Serum

If they’re into fancy hand creams (who isn't?), they’ll love La Mer’s rejuvenating hand serum. Made from heavy-duty hydrators – plus the brand’s iconic Miracle Broth – it leaves hands looking and feeling instantly softer, while fine lines and discolouration fade over time.


Nannette de Gaspé – Bain Noir Cannabis Sativa Bath Soak Treatment 

At the end of a busy day, taking a long, hot soak is a splurge in itself, but Nannette de Gaspé’s Bain Noir Bath Soak Treatment will make it the ultimate treat – thanks to its unique blend of black pearl and cannabis sativa seed oil that’s as luxurious as it is relaxing.


Selfridges – Beauty Sleep Collection

Ask any woman what she lacks most in her life and we predict most would say sleep. So what better way to treat them than with the gift of some blissful shut-eye? Specially curated by our expert team of beauty buyers, our exclusive Sleep Collection comprises a deep sleep pillow spray, silk pillow case and eye mask, all housed in one of our signature Selfridges gift boxes. Dreamy!


Estée Lauder – Advanced Night Repair

Whether they’re already a serum superfan – or yet to try one – you can’t go wrong with Estée Lauder’s iconic Advanced Night Repair Serum, which is packed with powerful antioxidants that fight and reverse the signs of ageing. Dark circles and puffiness disappear, fine lines seem to fade, and suddenly the world is a better place.


La Prairie – Platinum Rare Cellular Life Lotion

Disclaimer: we can’t deny that this product is pretty pricey, but the latest skincare innovation from the Swiss skincare brand La Prairie, Platinum Rare Cellular Life-Lotion, promises bright, luminous skin – and that’s something any hardworking woman would appreciate (take it from us). Packed with antioxidants, it’s a skincare powerhouse as well as being a real treat to use.


Bobbi Brown – exclusive Ulla Johnson collection

How to make any beauty lover feel like a million bucks? Bobbi Brown’s limited-edition collection with designer Ulla Johnson is just the ticket. Comprising two creamy blush-and-highlighter duos, one eye palette, a lipstick and a lip tint all in easy-to-wear pink and pastel hues, it’s the only make-up collection they’ll need this spring.


Dyson – Supersonic Hairdryer 

When a product takes a whopping four years and £50 million to make, you know it’s going to be something special. Enter then one of our favourite time-saving beauty devices: the Dyson hairdryer. Using the same technology as a classic Dyson handdryer, this model halves drying time and is significantly lighter than its other counterparts, making for a quick, easy and enjoyable styling experience. One word: genius.
