Christmas Gift Guide – Part 2

This is part 2 of the Christmas Gift Guide {For part 1, click here}

Can you believe Christmas is nearly here??

For some last minute hectic dash to the shops for some gifts, how about some of the following …

BENEFIT (available at selected Myer stores nationally and at the Benefit Boutique in Paddington, NSW)

This year, Benefit’s Christmas offerings has a travel theme. Combine that with Benefit’s retro packaging and you get cute packaging overload.

She’s So Jetset kit $89AUD*

Benefit She's So Jetset $89AUD

This is a nine-piece makeup set that’s ideal for the travelling makeup addict looking to consolidate a number of makeup products into one palette. Comes with: four eyeshadows (7g) (Champagne Please, Gold Card, Pretty in Mink, Elegant Espresso), The POREfessional (7.5ml), They’re Real! mascara (4g), Life on the A-List lipgloss (5.2ml), First-Class Face Powder with own brush (3g) and a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator.

Benefit She's So Jetset $89AUD

While the colours are not unique or exciting by any stretch of the imagination, they are neutral and ‘safe’ and have the ability to be used in both a daytime and night time look. The products are great at helping you achieve a great ‘bright eyed’ look even after flying long haul. I like that all products are travel size and can be carried onto a plane without risking confiscation – definitely perfect for flight attendants or travelling business professionals etc

BURT’S BEES (available at David Jones, Harrisons Pharmacies, Kleins Perfumery, Terry White Chemists and selected retail outlets. Also available online at

Bee Good $29.95AUD*

Burt's Bees Bee Good $29.95AUD

Everything a girl needs to keep her skin in tip-top shape and well moisturised. Burt’s Bees Bee Good gift set comes with a cocoa and cupuacu butter body lotion (170g), shea hand cream (50g), lemon butter cuticle cream (17g) and a mango lip balm (4.25g). They’re all full-size products so it’s definitely value for money. The products have a lovely refreshing citrus honey scent which I find really welcoming especially in Summer.

DERMALOGICA (available at salons nationwide. For your nearest salon, check the Dermalogica website here to locate one)

I class Dermalogica as a ‘treat’ for my skin. It’s one of those brands where when I can afford it, I purchase. My skin loves it! This Christmas, Dermalogica has released three value-for-money packs whereby you pay for one full-size product and you receive two free gifts in the sets:

Special Cleansing Gel Set $53AUD

You get the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel and receive the Skin Prep Scrub (22ml) and PreCleanse (30ml) for free.

Multivitamin Thermafoliant Set $90AUD

This set includes the Dermalogica Multivitamin Thermofoliant and receive the Antioxidant Hydramist (30ml) and Skin Resurfacing Cleanser (30ml) for free.

Daily Microfoliant Set $83.50AUD

I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the Daily Microfoliant. So much so that when they were offering it for free with a magazine, I grabbed two copies!

So this set is going on my Christmas wishlist! You get the Dermaolgica Daily Microfoliant (75g) and receive the Gentle Cream Exfoliant (10ml) and PreCleanse (30ml) for free.
