A COUPLE OF CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS
I know that one of the highlights of anticipating towards the Christmas season is all the different varieties of beauty gift sets (if you were a beauty junkie like moi).
I have to say it is a little bit disappointing that living in Hong Kong we don't seem to have as many choices as those who live in the U.K. in terms of Beauty Calendars. Yes I know I can order it online and have them shipped across the oceans but it's also a great excuse not to splurge on it too much but to choose sensibly.
Here are the two thang that I have bought for myself this year.
The ASOS Beauty Advent Calendar, I am such a massive fan of ASOS I buy stuff from them on a monthly basis. Of course when I first heard about them releasing its first beauty advent calendar, I ordered it straight away (back in October). I'm surprised it hasn't been sold out yet as it does have some pretty exciting brands of things inside such as Yes To, Balance Me and Nuxe. Anyway, it came in such a sturdy and big marbled effect box that is so chic and substantial that I cannot wait to open each of them from 1 December! By the way, there are also three other beauty advent calendars that could possibly take your fancy - go on have a look!
When I received a notification email from Chantecaille about this year's special christmas gift sets, my heart seemed to have stopped for a beat. This set that I have got is such a good value for money (total savings = HK$310). It contains the Ultra Sun Protection Primer, the Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser and the Anti-Fatigue Corrector Pen. I haven't tried the corrector pen before but I love the primer which I use on a daily basis, I wanted to give the Just Skin another try, so this set is a dream comes true for me! They are available from 15 November in Lane Crawford and other Chantecaille counters.
Now, I'm just hoping 1 December will come soon enough so I can begin to open those little windows of goodies everyday!
