Christmas on a Student Budget | Gifts for: The Skincare Addict


Today I bring you the final instalment to my Christmas on a Student Budget series. I have really enjoyed doing these and they have received really good views so thank you very much! Today is about 'The Skincare Addict'- for those who love to take care of their skin.

1. Garnier Mini Micellar Ultra Lift Gift Set (£10.00). This set focuses on 'lifting' the skin so it might be better for an adult audience, although the Garnier Micellar water is for anyone. I absolutely love the Garnier Micellar Water as a make up remover it is my holy grail so I would happily buy it for other people. It also comes with the UltraLift Day Cream to make skin feel firmer and to reduce wrinkles/fine lines.

2. Lush Mask of Magnaminty (£9.95). This mask focuses on clearing, calming and cleaning the skin. It is a large pot so it will last your recipient for a long time. This mask is a very popular product of Lush and has honey as an antiseptic and peppermint to reinvigorate. If your recepient suffers from blemished skin and/or oiliness, this could be the one for them.

3. Nivea Lip Tin Vanilla (£2.00). Nivea is absolutely number one when it comes to moisturising the lips, particularly for those of us who regularly complain of dry and chapped lips. This is a simple gift but the tin lasts a while and it really does do a fantastic job. This would be good as a stocking filler or as a general gift. I got it for Christmas last year and it goes great in my handbag. Plus, it fits a whole range of people!

4. Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub (£5.50). This is another holy grail product of mine. A good way of getting rid of chapped lips in the winter is to use a lip scrub. This one is natural, smells great and you can even lick it off after. I can make a pot of this last nearly a whole year so it is the gift that keeps on giving. Also good to use before applying lipstick or any other lip product to ensure smoother application!

5. Yes To Carrots Fragrance Free Exfoliating Cleanser (£7.99). Yes To incorporate all kinds of fruit and vegetables to treat all kinds of skin complaints. This one is an exfoliating cleanser, good for getting rid of dead skin, where the aim is at normal to dry skin. Dry skin and be quite annoying in the colder months! In addition to that it is fragrance free, ensuring that it would be good for the most sensitive of skins. Not to mention that the brand is so interesting in the type of ingredients that it uses that it makes an intriguing and conversation starter present.

6. The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish (£5.00). Another good product for these colder months is an exfoliating body scrub to get rid of the once again, dry, dead skin cells. The Body Shop is a trustworthy brand for this job and is especially good to use before shaving. It smells amazing!

That is it for my Christmas gift guides this year! I hope that this, or any of the others, were helpful. Here are the links to my other budget/student gift guides for 2015:
