Christmas Gift Guide in Surrey

It’s almost Christmas time! I’ve put together a Christmas gift guide from a mix of independent shops and department stores in Surrey. Here goes:

For the Beauty Queen

Liz Earle Christmas gift

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser £9
Give the gift of great skin with this amazing cleanser. With lovely natural ingredients like camomile and rosemary, it’s perfect for all skin types. I’ve used it every day for 3 years and my skin has visibly improved. From Liz Earle in Guildford.

Clinique Moisture gift

Clinique More Than Moisture Christmas Gift Set £40
I adore Clinique’s Moisture Surge Thirst Relief cream. It’s a light, gel-like formula especially for dehydrated skin (skin that’s lacking in water, not oil). So this gift set is great value: you get a full size moisturiser (worth £34), a generous sample size of the Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, a mini eye cream and a mini pink Superbalm Moisturising lip gloss, all for £40. From Lloyds Pharmacy in Cobham.

Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Brushes various prices

Middle: Blusher Brush £30.
Right: Foundation Brush £30.
