Put yourself in their shoes and buy something you would love to receive. But in case you find yourself browsing aimlessly online, hoping to get struck by lightning with inspiration, here is the ultimate 2016 Beauty List that you can’t go wrong with.

LAURA MERCIER Le Petite Soufflés Soufflé Body Crème Collection

I love Laura Mercier body creams for their beautifully thick and silky texture, and delicious scent. They are deeply hydrating and nourishing, and therefore make an ideal gift during the winter months. And this set presents the perfect opportunity to take advantage of all six gorgeous scents. It includes Soufflé Body Crème,  Almond Coconut Milk, Ambre Vanille, Crème de Pistache, Fresh Fig, Crème Brulee, Tarte au Citron.

Foreo LUNA Go for Normal Skin

This super-cute offspring of LUNA 2, ‘Go’ is ideal for gym bunnies or jet-setters. It delivers all the same skin-cleansing and age-defying benefits of its full-sized relations, whilst being perfectly portable (not to mention adorable). It’s fully rechargeable and dual-sided – one side boosts the penetration and pore-purifying properties of your cleanser, while the other helps to maximise absorption of your skincare products, while promoting circulation. Luna 2 leaves your complexion feeling ‘plumped’ and looking luminous.



LAURA MERCIER Essential Art Eye & Cheek Palette

I actually just bought this. I’m all about glow, so I couldn’t stay away from these beautifully flattering colours that Laura Mercier has created for us. Comprising of eight complementary eye shadows and two blushers this limited-edition palette with its eye-catching leopard print design is this season’s perfect accessory for anyone who loves make-up.



This best-seller is a perfect gift for any makeup lover. In this book Kevyn Aucoin shares not only the basics of makeup application and techniques, but also explains how to use the fundamentals to create a wide range of different looks. He teaches you tricks for enhancing, defining and altering facial features with makeup. The book  includes simple step-by-step instructions, allowing easily to create different makeup looks.

Colonia Essenza Travel Spray 30ml

You can never go wrong with Aqua di Parma. It’s everyone’s favourite smell. Movie stars, such as Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, David Niven and Cary Grant, all wore this classic scent.

This refined travel spray is the perfect addition to any cosmopolitan man’s wardrobe. An elegant and practical object: the soft, hand-finished, black calf-skin leather travel spray holder is embossed with the Acqua di Parma logo and has a handy opening mechanism.

Foreo LUNA 2 for Men

A clean and imperfection-free face is as equally important for men as women. This next generation sonic cleansing and anti-ageing device has evolved to address the needs of men’s complexions – which are generally thicker, oilier (and hairier) than those of their feminine counterparts. The ‘brush’ head is now 50% larger to facilitate faster, more effective cleansing – and with 8000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute, LUNA 2 for Men is twice as powerful as the original; purging pores of impurities while diminishing the depth of fine lines and furrows. 100% waterproof and completely hygienic, you can also expect up to 450 uses per single charge – it’s a skin care game changer!

June UV Sensor

If you and your loved one are planning a winter getaway, this stylish bracelet could be the perfect accessory. It’s been developed to measure your skin’s UV exposure to help you apply precise protection. When it comes to your health, knowledge is power; and the June UV sensor provides critical data where you need it most. The bracelet accurately measures how much damaging UV your skin is really being exposed to, helping you to choose correctly the optimum protection to shield yourself from sun damage. Designed to fit wrist sizes between 15,5cm and 19cm, and with comfortable leather or silicon bands, the advanced sun solution also comes with a free app, lifetime support and no subscription fee. It’s also compatible with the iPhone 4 and all later models.

How it works: JUNE’s UVA and UVB sensors precisely measure your exposure to the sun. The app computes the data and gives you the UV index in real time. Considering your skin type and UV exposure, JUNE gives you your daily sun dose. If you reach 100%, a sunburn will appear. JUNE will send you notifications to protect your skin so that you keep away from 100%. Receive personalized notifications to know precisely when you should apply SPF, which level of SPF you should use, and even if you need sunglasses or a hat. I personally think this is a pretty cool gift!

MAY LINDSTROM (The Clean Dirt and The Honey Mud Duo)

A gorgeous gift for a skin-savvy man! This duo helps to prevent ingrowing hairs and takes the irritation out of shaving rashes. The Honey Mud Cleansing Silk contains raw honey (renowned for its soothing, healing and antimicrobial properties), alongside purifying white clay and nourishing plant oils to leave your complexion spotlessly clean with a velvety softness. The Clean Dirt is a skin-stimulating treatment that refines the texture and appearance of skin – whilst leaving it feeling velvety soft and positively glowing with vitality.
