Christmas | Beauty Crackers!


As much as I am struggling to believe it, Christmas is coming round the corner pretttttttty fast and it's time for me to start getting prepared! Being obsessed with all things beauty means I am always looking for ways to incorporate it more into life and it's so much easier to do this at Christmas time. Beauty Christmas crackers are becoming more popular every year and there is definitely a cracker for everyone. I thought I'd share some of my favourites so you can get convincing everyone that these are better than getting a tape measure, rubbish joke and paper hat! (Plus you can round up the contents and hide them in your beauty stash, nobody will notice they are gone!)

Clarins- These crackers are so gorgeous, to the point where I would find it hard to pull them, but with six Clarins treats inside it would probably take 30 seconds to rip into them all. Slightly pricey at £39 for a box of six crackers but worth it for Christmas Day. Contents- Beauty Flash Balm 30ml, Eau Des Jardins 30ml, Hand & Nail Treatment Cream 50ml, Gentle Refiner 30ml, Mini Rouge Eclat lipstick in Woodrose and a Mini Wonder Perfect Mascara.

This Works - I have wanted to try This Works for a long time! Inside is a 15ml Deep Sleep Dream Cream, this can be used all over to help you relax before bed, probably perfect for unwinding after Christmas Day! It's not the best value for money, the full size 75ml cream is £18 and the 15ml cracker is £9, but it would look pretty on the table at lunch or be a great stocking filler.

Nails Inc- Nails Inc have produced one of the best value for money sets that is definitely one of my favourites. costing £29.50 for 6 crackers that each have a full size polish inside. The polishes inside are the coveted Baker Street (cobalt blue), Mayfair Mews (blue fibre optic), Marylebone Lane (red glitter), King's Road (gold foil), Kensington High Street (burgundy) and Trafalgar Crescent (silver galaxy). All the shades are perfect for the party season. 

Anatomicals- For a slightly cheaper cracker I love the look of the A Smacker In A Cracker Kissing Kit. For £3 the cracker contains a Snog Me Senseless Lip Balm and Mouth Freshener. It's a funny novelty cracker with two products perfect for taking on a night out, it's definitely not luxurious but if you want a beauty cracker that won't break the bank this could be perfect. 

Origins- I am a huge fan of Origins and have a few reviews coming up soon featuring their products, I really want to get my hands on this set of six crackers, costing £45 and out on the 1st of December. Each cracker contains two 15ml samples and an Origins headband for pamer sessions. The samples included are Clear Improvement Mask, Modern Friction, Make A Difference + moisturiser, Drink Up Intensive Overight Mask, Make A Difference + hand cream, Ginger Burst Savoury body wash and Ginger Souffle Whipped body cream. It's a brilliant way to try a bunch of fab products, it's not a set that I'd be sharing!

Which Christmas Cracker is your favourite?

  2. Never knew these existed!! I like the sound of the Nails Inc ones as I love nail polishes, but the Clarins one looks like the 'gifts' inside are better, though they are slightly pricey!

  10. This is the cutest thing I've ever seen! Whoever invented them needs a pat on the back. And the person that invented Beauty Advent Calendars as well. I wish they were the same price as normal Christmas crackers though :( *sigh* Looks like I'll be getting another bouncy ball this year, with a silly 'only old people find it funny' joke and a ridiculously over-sized paper hat. But hey, isn't that what Christmas is about? xx
