Christmas Beauty Gifts

As my love of all things beauty is very well known amongst my family and friends I was very spoiled to receive some lovely products as gifts during the Christmas period. I thought I would share with you what I unwrapped:

Brazillian Butterfly Coconut and Pineapple Shimmer Cocoon Body Lotion
This smells like a beach (coconut always reminds me of sun baking the day away) and the touch of shimmer makes it great for applying on my legs after a day in the sun. It gives a lovely glowy look.

MOR hand and Body Lotion in Dulce
I have had a pump pack of scented MOR hand lotion on my office desk all year and it is running very low (it gets a good amount of use from all the girls in my office). My lovely friend Kate noticed this and purchased me a replacement as part of the office Kris Kringle. 

MOR Lip Macaron Bauble in Cassis Noir
I had been admiring these at Myer one lunch break so Kate went back and picked one up for me - very spoiled indeed! :-)

Gum Tree Soap with Goat's Milk and Manuka Honey
I love having pretty soaps for using in the shower so this will be a nice addition to my collection!

Nail polishes
These were actually a Thanksgiving gift from the gorgeous Emma but only got a chance to catch up with her just before Christmas - love these bright colours for summer!

Bath bombs
One of my favourite ways to spend a Sunday night is to have a soak in the bath and prepare for the week ahead. These smell good enough to eat so will be using these up very quickly!

The Classic Collection Rose Scented Hand Cream
This is such a perfect size for my bag and I have been more than a little obsessed with this lately.

Candy Apple Lip Balm
Anything this sweet scented gets my tick of approval. It's like my two favorite things (lollies and lip balm) in the one tube!

Lip Smacker in Sugar Plum
My friend from work Maxine bought us each a Christmas themed Lip Smacker! These always take me back to high school days when I would carry a stash of these in my pencil case and Maxi is not a big online shopper (unlike myself, whoops) so it was so nice of her to think of us girls. :-)

OPI Skyfall Collection
Another advantage of blogging all the time means my friends have quite a good idea which products I already own. Becky stalked my blog and bought me this collection of minis when she saw I didn't already have them. These are such pretty shades so stay tuned for some nail of the day posts soon!

Benefit Material Girl Matte Finish Setting Powder
Right before Christmas a surprise parcel arrived from my friend Lindsay. She had collected a few gifts with some purchases she had recently made and didn't think she'd use them so thought of me! She mailed me this setting powder from Benefit (who doesn't love the Benefit packaging and names of their products), looking forward to trying it out as soon as I am out of my current powder.

Stila Lip Liner
Another gift from Lindsay, this will be great in autumn when I start to wear some deeper colours on my lips. It's a beautiful plummy red so I'm excited to see how this goes.

I feel so lucky to have such lovely friends!

Did you receive any beauty gifts for Christmas?

Hope you are having a lovely day!

  1. I love the sound of the brazillian butterfly lotion, I'm a sucker for anything with coconut in it. I'm a new follower (and blogger) and I'm really enjoying reading all your posts :)
