On Science and Skincare, this time of year only means one thing, Christmas Skincare Gift guide. This years is really good, even if I do say so myself.
I have been speaking, testing, investigating brands and products for the whole of November. Now I’m confident in the fact that I’ve created a unique skincare guide, including products/services you won’t find anywhere else.
So, in no particular order here it the Christmas Skincare Guide 2021.
Christmas Skincare Guide 2021
Why I love it: GetHarley is a genius and transformative beauty idea. Essentially, you can speak to the best skincare professionals around to help you get to your skin goals. The reason why it’s so good? You can do this from anywhere in the world and it doesn’t cost an arm or a leg.
Practitioners on GetHarley include consultants, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, aesthetic doctors, celebrity facialists and PhDs. Once you’ve had your consultation, you get sent a skincare routine designed specially for you. You can choose to buy it straight away or you can wait for payday.
The best part? A 30 minute consultation costs £30. They are quite literally democratising skincare. Those who couldn’t afford a visit to the best dermatologist on Harley Street, can now see a specialist at home.
Although, I think surprising someone with a consultation is a good gift idea (if they’ve mentioned an interest in skincare specifically), the reason they are on this list if for their Glow Box.
For £100 the gift box includes a consultation and a bespoke skincare regime, sent directly to the recipients door, just like in the picture above.
The Ordinary Skincare gifts
Why I love it: This set is only £33 pound for a whole skincare routine, packed full of active ingredients which tackle dull skin and hyperpigmentation. Anyone who wants gorgeous, glowing, even skin need look no further!
It makes for a really thoughtful gift for pretty much anyone, or even an impressive stocking filler.
Why I love it: Reduit is a device ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of the hand and it is powered by Enhanced Delivery Technology. The effectiveness of the RÉDUIT Spa device and Smartpods lies in Ultrasonic Diffusion. This is a force that separates the formula (which you buy from them too) into small particles that is supposed to provide better coverage and easier and faster absorption, and Magnetic Misting, a technology that pushes the actives deeper into the skin layers than any device on the market.
Why I love it: Anatomé is incredibly luxurious and the perfect ‘I wouldn’t buy this for myself’ present. I like the ‘Balance Set’ the most because the combination of bath salts, candles and sleep oils is the ultimate relaxation combo. And who doesn’t need relaxing this year?

Now they’ve teamed up to give us Pure Culture Beauty, a customisable beauty brand that uses data and science to develop products which target the microbiome and improve skin health.
