THE Beauty Wishlist For Christmas - All Our Top Favourites

One thing we all dread receiving for Christmas is smellies. Something which is likely to be recycled as a present to give to someone else in the future or just tossed to the back of your cupboard to never be seen again.

It's not that I don't want beauty products, I do, I really do. But I only want products which are worth having and not a gift set purchased in the 3 for 2 offer at one very popular high street chemist which is very likely to be something to make me itch and full of additives which my skin really doesn't need.

All us ladies love a quality beauty product and I have chosen some fab ones for you to add to your Christmas wishlist.

Here's the Top 10 beauty products we are coveting:

1.  THE must-have make-up every lady wants to have in her cosmetic bag is By Terry. Last month saw the launch of Terrybly Densiliss which has so far being receiving rave reviews and we cannot wait to try it ourselves.  "Terrybly Densiliss®, is a hybrid of an ‘absolute density’ fluid foundation with a ‘wrinkle control’ serum."

2. We are huge fans of Therapie so when I spotted this luxury gift collection I knew this was an ideal gift to give to someone for Christmas. "A trio of heavenly best-sellers, this is stress-relief in a beautiful be-ribboned box – soothing anxieties, strengthening skin and encouraging a good night’s sleep thanks to expert Michelle Roques-O’Neil’s aroma-therapeutic magic. Including THE cult pink Himalayan Detox Salts (500g), the sensuous Cherish Skin Repair Serum (200ml) and uplifting Restore Aura Spray."

3. Launching this winter, is this bathtime treat with a difference. The NEW Argan+ Indulge & Relax Foam Bath infuses your bathwater with a luxurious blend of Moroccan Argan oil, Baobab oil, Kukui oil, Moringa oil and Sancha Inci. The oils contain fatty acids and vitamins A and F to fully hydrate your skin; a vast amount of antioxidants to protect against ageing; and linoleic and linolenic acids to stimulate cells, reduce scarring and help to prevent stretch marks.

4. If you were not lucky enough to win our giveaway of the Too Faced Eyeshadow set (winner announced later today) then hopefully someone will treat you to the new Too Faced Jingle All The Way pop-out makeup palette and iPhone 5 case.

This set comprises of 11 eyeshadows, blush, bronzer and iPhone 5 case.

5. You may have never heard of Kiko cosmetics, but they are an Italian brand who arrived in the UK and have already opened three stores in London. And, you can always buy online from their website.

Skin Trainer Eyes - KIKO £18.90

I can vouch that this Kiko Skin Trainer Eyes which was recently launched is a fab buy for fighting puffiness and dark circles. Energising and stimulating it improves the drainage of excess fluids found around the eye area. The metal applicator is nice and cold ready for application.

6. Another KIKO product which is on our Beauty Wishlist is this Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow set. Each stick eyeshadow is worth £6.90 individually so as a collection of 5 very wearable stick eyeshadows for £22.90 it is a great buy.

Here's an image I took of the eyeshadow sticks inside the set. They are vibrant colours which have been tested to last up to 8 hours and are water-resistant. I have been applying the brown and green most recently and I keep using them again and again!

7.  You can always rely on Weleda to create the most heavenly beauty products and the Pomegranate range is fantastic. So, this festive set is going to be well received on Christmas day.

8. Every girl loves to indulge with a face mask and THE ultimate mask to go for is the Glamglow, Hollywood's best kept secret. This mud mask is like no other. Trust me it is the best and I am seriously hoping my husband buys me a pot of this. I have only tried a sachet sample for one application and it was excellent.

10.  Last but not least, every woman needs a new perfume to add to her dressing table top. The most fanciable scent has to be Tom Ford's Fleur De Chine. This perfume became part of the Private Blend Collection earlier this year . This is a very romantic scent, full of floral fragrance and described as dramatic, smouldering and seductive.
