OUR TOP BEAUTY GIFT SETS TRIED AND TESTED

November 20, 2018

The holidays are here, which begs the question: where has this year even gone? And since we all thought we had more time, let’s talk gift ideas. Looking for the perfect Secret Santa surprise, the ideal gift for a friend or just want a festive treat all for yourself? Look no further…

Beauty gifts tried and tested | ASOS Style Feed

To help you with your search, we’ve asked our Copywriter Rachel to test out some of our best Face + Body gift sets on ASOS right now. From indulgent face masks to festive pieces filled with things you actually want inside, she’s giving us the under-the-tree debrief.

I’ve been really feeling the cold lately, so this came in handy (no pun intended). The cuticle oil and hand cream are both so nourishing and moisturizing, I’ve already added them into my daily routine. The hand cream smells like grapefruit and coriander and absorbs instantly into the skin, leaving none of that greasy residue behind. Secret Santas out there, take note.

I tested this kit out in the traditional fashion — watching a rom-com, surrounded by snacks. The film was sub-par but the face mask was a dream. It comes with a little brush for applying (saving your manicure), it dries in seconds and only needs to be left on for 10 minutes. After rinsing off with the soft pad, my pores were visibly refined. The best part? The next morning, my skin was the softest it’s ever been — believe the hype, people.

Forget what you thought about surprise gift sets — this one is major. Instead, it’s packed with two award-winning haircare products. The coveted pre-shampoo treatment means you might have to get up a bit earlier in the morning, but it’s worth it for the super-glossy locks. The damage defence spray is also a great detangler, FYI.

BOD Mulled Wine bath salts available at ASOS | ASOS Style Feed

Full disclosure: I'm not a bath person but I’m definitely a mulled wine person. So, NGL, this was probably my favorite out of the bunch. Packed with dried orange slices, cloves and the odd cinnamon stick, it turns water into wine (color-wise, obvs). Soak for just 20 minutes and say hello to baby-soft, smooth skin.
