10 of our favourite beauty buys this season & your chance to WIN a beauty hamper from McGorisk’s Pharmacy.

Ordinarily we wouldn’t mention the C word in October, but let’s face it, this has not been an ordinary year! The Christmas gift sets have started to arrive in stores and our pro tip is to not just use it as an opportunity to start getting sorted with gifts, but also to stock up on items you’d be buying for yourself throughout the year anyway, but for better value as a set!

Gifts That Keep On Giving

Everyday essentials to enjoy all year long!

Spotlight Gift Set €49

Why we love it – It includes a two week supply of whitening strips but I honestly noticed the difference even after two days! You’re saving €19 by buying the set instead of individually – win! Plus I love that it’s two Irish women behind the brand!

The Belle Brush Gift Set €45*

Why we love it – My favourite find of the year! If you have or know some one who has hair extensions or little girls, this is a game changer! No more damage to expensive extensions and no more tears! The smaller one is perfect for little heads or for your handbag!

Bellamianta Gift Set €28

Why we love it – It’s a supersized 200ml bottle of tan that dries in 60 seconds and lasts up to 7 days! The set also includes the Flawless Filter Body Makeup that washes off easily and can be used on your face too!

Voduz Blow Out Dryer €79.95

Why we love it – I don’t understand the science behind it but all I know is it’s so much quicker than any other dryer I’ve used, and less damaging. Also, the 10ft power cable is so handy!!

Show Stoppers!

Big ticket items for true beauty fans!

Estee Lauder Blockbuster Beauty Essentials €81 (when you spend €50*)

Why we love it – Worth €382, it includes 32 products, some of our absolute must haves, like Advanced Night Repair, and some we haven’t tried yet so it’s a great way to sample the products before you buy bigger bottles!

Blank Canvas Brush Set €250

Why we love it – Top of my wish list, it includes a massive 40 luxurious Blank Canvas Brushes PLUS the ‘Holy Grail’ of brush cleaners, the Blank Canvas Cosmetics Solid Brush & Sponge Soap!

Good Gifts Come In Small Packages

Little luxuries that are perfect as stocking fillers or Secret Santa gifts

Benefit Christmas Cracker €16.50

Why we love it –Includes 3 best- selling Benefit products including my go to Mascara, “They’re Real”. The product sizes are perfect for fitting into small clutch bags too!

Inglot x Maura Lip Kit €22

Why we love it –There are lots of shades available but this nude one is a great option, especially if it’s a gift as it will suits lots of skin tones so you can’t go wrong! I also love that Inglot have collaborated with local girl Maura Higgins on this collection, fair play to her!

Bomb Cosmetics Snow Flurry Set €13

Why we love it – Almost too cute to open but you’re definitely going to want to open it because it has some amazing smelling bath products inside. I think this is a perfect gift for a pre-teen that’s just getting interested in all things beauty!

NUXE Florale Gift Set €39

Why we love it – This is a best seller in store so it’s a safe option for people you might not know very well; your brother’s new girlfriend or Margaret in the accounts Department who you got in the Secret Santa!

*Back comb brush pictured not included in Belle Brush set. Estee Lauder essentials set worth €382 is available for €81 when you spend €51 or more on Estee Lauder products in store
