This year, MAF is offering up not 1, but 12, yes TWELVE Christmas Gift Guides!
These are the 12 Hints of Christmas! 12 different categories, each focusing on beauty and every budget is catered for. As always, we leave prices off our pages, preferring to never assume one’s budget, and instead, giving you clickable links to see more details about each item, and for those that have sensibly forwarded this on to their Husbands/Boyfriends/Other Halves, they can simply click and buy.
And if you’d rather be a little more subtle, simply Print, and Hint!
Despite what many men think, buying skincare for a woman really isn’t an insult, it’s a decadent way to say ‘I love you’, and is a purchase they will be grateful for, particularly if it’s something you think they may not have tried before. These are some of our suggestions for you to buy!
Lots of fun ideas and offerings, and don’t forget….

From Elemis comes their incredible 6 piece set of their timeless best sellers, all in a beautiful grey bag. Called The Jewels of Elemis, we would agree. It contains their world famous Pro Collagen Marine Cream, and the brand newly launched Pro Collagen Body Cream.

At almost half the retail price if you bought these separately, this gift set is definitely one to put right at the top of your wish list!
Housed in this beautiful white box is the first 3 parts of the Nurture Protect series of skincare products. With supplements to kick start the protection of your skin, from the inside out, and then a luxurious day and night cream to compliment it, this would be a great gift for someone who wants to protect their skin. And if you’re shopping for someone who perhaps wants to turn back time a little, take a look a the Nurture Replenish range too.
Rhodes to Heaven. The sheer hard work of 2 sisters on the Isle of Wight have brought a whole new range of products to the skincare party. Each product is designed to be multi tasking; less outlay, less packaging, more eco friendly. But does each product actually work? Well, absolutely! The standout star is the All in One Moisturising Facial Rescue, as it really does do so many things! It plumps, moisturises, lifts, smooths, regenerates and protects (amongst other things!). But the whole collection delivers so many things. We’re showing 5 products here, of which you choose a couple to go in your own personalised Little Black Bag, stuffed with the most darling pink tissue! You don’t even need to wrap this, just pop it straight under the tree!
With 2 of the most talked about of Transformulas products, the Eyelifting Gel and Lip Volume Duo is a must have if you want to be specific in your request for skincare treatment gifts! The eyelifting gel will tighten and firm, and the lip volume will plump up those lips, but without that eye watering sting!
Ark, now famous for their Age Aware collections, prepare for teens to 30s, maintain for 30s to 50s and repair for 50 and beyond, really know how to get it right. Though Ark has been around for many years, the Age Aware range burst on to the market just 2 years ago, and is now loved by many an expert! We’ve chosen the Age Maintain Renewing Exfoliator as our suggestion, as it really is an exfoliator like you’ve never seen before. Just layer on the product as a mask, let it do it’s thing, and then wash it away! No buffing or scrubbing, dead skin cells are washed away, and a very obvious refreshed brightness appears all over the face. Incredible product.
With a name like Glorious Skin, you really ought to be able to expect that on your own face, and this Visible Lifting Instant Serum delivers on it’s promise. It really does deliver an instant lift! Your skin is instantly relaxed, and the lines and wrinkles seem to be compacted away to nothing. It’s a bit like control pants for your face… but with a heck of a lot more science behind it! Expect to look and feel like you have that Glorious Skin it promised!
Clinique have done it again! Created a gentle product that works very hard beneath the surface, creating a long lasting treatment in 2 little bottles! First, the brand new Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer which gently exfoliates over time, leaving you with a more radiant glow, and for night time, the heavy guns; the Overnight Radiance Moisturiser which works at sweeping away the dullness of time, and leaves you with a more youthful and velvety smooth skin. If you know that your recipient is a Clinique fan, then know that this will be extremely well received!
Brand new, (as in so new, Myroo had to rush through getting the product onto their website ready for our article), this incredible Starflower and Orange Blossom serum is so beautiful, it’s going to be a hard task to put it into words. The smell first off is a gentle blossom smell. Not synthetic (well, it wouldn’t be, it’s totally natural!) in anyway, but equally not overpowering. Then, after you’ve gently smoothed a couple of drops into your skin, you’ll see that it’s absorbed almost instantly, and over a fairly short space of time, you’ll see that your skin looks and feels healthier, and you’ll feel better for it too.
No skincare gift guide would be complete without the multi award winning Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. Known for it’s abilities to treat and repair past damage on your skin, there is not a woman alive who wouldn’t grab this and put it at the top of her ’best present ever received’ list! Don’t stop to think about it, just click buy. It will definitely be worth it!
Noted for their incredible Aromesscence products, Decleor have released a wonderful Night Beauty Gift Set, with madagascar candle to create a home spa situation, relaxing bath and shower gel to help ease those tensions away, a beautiful moisturising body milk, their night beauty regenerating cream and a relaxing pillow mist. Perfectly presented, this gift will be very well received by a woman who wishes that sometimes their sleep was a bit more restful.
