Cruelty Free Christmas Beauty Gift Guide: Luxury Gifts

I'm taking things up to the next luxe level for the fourth part to my Cruelty Free Christmas Beauty Gift Guide series with my pick of the most lust-worthy presents. From bath and body, to skin and haircare, makeup, nails and some accessories in-between, there should be a little bit of everything here for that beauty lover in your life if you're looking to spend that little bit more. Ranging from £26-£89 in price, there should be a little (or large) something for everyone, be it for a mum, sister, friend or loved one, or even yourself wanting to extend that Christmas wish list, here's what we've got from left to right going top, middle and bottom...

Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Red Carpet Skin - £59 John Lewis - With a flurry of requests on what she uses to prep the skin of her models, CT has put together a red carpet ready skincare travel kit, perfect for those on the go or for a taster of what the range has to offer. Containing 15ml tubes each of her Goddess Skin Clay Mask, a detox treatment, Multi-Miracle Glow, a 3-in-1 remedy, Magic Cream, a miracle-working moisturiser, Supermodel Body, a 'slimmer shimmer' to contour the body in all the right places and Take It All Off, a bi-phase eye makeup remover, this kit has you set for Christmas festivities. 

Perricone MD Perfectly Polished - £72 CultBeauty - Exclusive to this online beauty haven, the Perfectly Polished edit is made up of the brands best selling no makeup, makeup products with a bonus Face Finishing Moisturiser, all in miniature sizes. Starring a 30ml size of said cream, a 10 ml No Foundation Foundation Serum, a 5ml No Blush Blush, a 4g No Mascara Mascara and a 4g No Lipstick Lipstick, all work together to create a your skin but better finish - a great gift for those who like their makeup kept all kinds of natural.

Holistic Silk Massaging Slippers - £68 CultBeauty - A pretty genius gift for that hard-to-purchase-for person in your life, these aren't just a standard pair of slippers; made from high quality silk and soles that are moulded with magnets, they help improve circulation and apply gentle pressure to relieve pain and massage the feet whilst you walk. Slip on an end-of-the-day indulgence after running-around, for in-flight travel or when practising yoga - they come with an incredible amount of health benefits and are available in three lovely colour ways.

Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress & Comfort Box - £36 Space NK - This set screams ideal for any hard-working Mum's out there who would greatly receive a bit of a treat. Housing four bath time beautifiers for the ultimate relaxation, here we have two mini Bath & Shower Oils in De-Stress Mind and Support Lavendar & Peppermint, a full-size De-Stress Body Wash and a miniature Relax Candle to complete the overall pamper. 

Oribe Gold Lush Collection - £89 Space NK - For the girl who has it all when it comes to makeup and skincare, switch your gift up a bit with some haircare heroes from one of the best luxe brands around. Containing a full-size Gold Lust Repair and Restore Shampoo and Conditioner, and a half-size Balm D'or for heat protecting benefits, this trio for the tresses will restore and revive using top notch oils and extracts.

Cherish Makeup Bag - £26.99 Maggs London - Handmade using the best quality, quilted Liberty London print material, Cherish is one of the many designs to come from Hannah Michalak's Magg's London makeup bag range, and to me has the most Christmassy appeal dotted with red berries amongst leafy vines. With a meaning behind each bag, this number stands for passion and joy, with a message to put life into perspective and show affection to those who mean the most, and with that, I think it would make for most thoughtful gift. As well as her makeup bag line, she's also just released the High Hopes Brush Roll, stunning and something a little special. 

Deborah Lippmann Undressed Shades of Nude - £27.00 CultBeauty - Starring six subtle, neutral hues in half-size bottles, this spectrum of barely-there lacquers are suited for all skin tones to transform plain nails to perfectly polished. On-trend with buffs and beiges, inside you'll find Flesh for Fantasy, a nude creme, Totally Nude, a pale pink, nude creme, Born This Way, a peach-nude creme, Bare it All, a muted mauve creme, Natural Woman, a beige-nude and Skin Deep, a nude creme - one heck of a set for any nail polish collector in your life.

Tata Harper Daily Essentials - £51 CultBeauty - Housing a full seven step-by-step skincare regime, this box of travel beautifiers is also an amazing introduction to Tata Harper's line, one of the best around. Featuring a range that will cover you for 10-12 days use, it includes a 15ml Regenerating Cleanser, a 15ml Hydrating Floral Essence, a 10ml Rejuvenating Serum, a 10ml Reparative Moisturiser, a small pot of the Resurfacing Face Mask, a 3ml Replenishing Nutrient Complex and a baby Restorative Eye Creme, all of which contribute to a more restored, nourish complexion with anti-aging benefits. 

Spa of The World Luxurious Body Collection - £65 TheBodyShop - A curated collation of treats from the latest and greatest Spa of The World range, this makes for the dreamiest of pamper presents for those who deserve a whole lot more 'me time', boasting incredible value for money with all full-size products; a bath of Egyptian Milk & Honey Bath, a tub of African Ximenia Scrub, a pot of Japanese Camellia Cream, a bottle of French Lavender Massage Oil and a Thai Wooden Massager tool.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - £65 Space NK - Rounding up radiant beauty in a compact, this just-in from Hourglass is a limited edition edit of powders, blushes and a bronzer. Six shades make up the palette and feature Iridescent Strobe, a soft pink-pearl setting-powder, Dim Light, a neutral pink-beige to perfect and highlight, Diffused Light, a pale yellow powder to reduce redness, Luminous Flush, a champagne rose blush, Mood Exposure, a soft plum flush for the cheeks and Luminous Bronze Light, a medium tan which imparts an all over candle-lit like warmth - trust me, there won't be any luxe makeup lover that wouldn't want to find this under the tree.

If all of the above are way above budget, take a look back at where my gift guide kicked off with the beauty tree trinkets, followed by the stocking fillers and the presents with a price tag of £25 or under. I'll be back with the next lot tomorrow, the guide of gifts for any men in your life - because we all know how tricky that can truly be...
