Skincare can be a tricky gift to buy - what scents do people love? What irritates their skin? It can be a minefield, and if you're unsure I'd suggest skipping it, or at least checking what the recipient keeps in their bathroom cupboard to avoid any mistakes. For Santa's benefit I will say I'd be happy with any of the above, as well as a refill of my favourite Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub and La-Roche Posay Lipikar Baume AP. But everyone is different, so think hard before purchase! As always with these guides, both the images and the links below will take you to the places you can buy them.
For French pharmacie fetishists, purchase the two-pack of Bioderma, and save them the hassle of ordering it themselves. Girls who suffer from chapped winter hands will appreciate the Happy Hands set by L'Occitane, or will perhaps be charmed by the Burt's Bees Tips and Toes Set featuring the much raved about cuticle butter.
Those of your friends and family who enjoy fragranced bath products will possibly enjoy the seasonal, popular and incredibly feminine Snow Fairy Gift from Lush; or the slightly more grown-up looking and smelling Korres Jasmine Set.
Finally, for an expensive treat for men or women, try Aesop's New York Travel Kit housed in a sleek black case and featuring favourites from their Parsley Seed range.
