Cult beauty for Christmas

Looking for an awesome gift this Christmas? Snap up a cult beauty buy and revamp someone’s beauty regime for 2020

Thousands can’t be wrong. When you buy a bestseller as a Christmas gift, it comes with a good dose of credibility. Cult beauty products make brilliant Christmas prezzies because they have the potential to transform the way a loved one cares for their skin, rather than just being a novelty gift.

Choose these cult faves to be extra this gift-giving season:

Dermalogica’s most advanced formula, Age Smart Phyto-Nature Firming Serum works instantly. Doubling skin luminosity and reducing the appearance of fine lines, it’s a dual phase serum with biomimetic peptides and highly active botanicals from nature’s pharmacy. Helping skin return to a younger state, it gives you up to five years back. If that’s not a cool Christmas present, we don’t know what is!

A next-generation moisturiser, Dermalogica’s New Skin Smoothing Cream features a state-of-the-art complex that infuses skin with moisture and works on a molecular level to help reduce trans-epidermal water loss and shield the skin’s natural microbiome. Active HydraMesh Technology infuses skin with 48 hours of continuous hydration and helps protect against environmental stress making this cream perfect for dry, dehydrated or prematurely ageing skin.

Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream is a firming, smoothing, hydrating day cream for fine lines and wrinkles. With powerful anti-ageing ingredients it has been shown to reduce wrinkle depth, as well as improving skin firmness and hydration. Providing a progressive lifting effect, it helps to deliver visible results within 15 days –a great way to start 2020.


A cult hairspray wouldn’t darken or ‘yellow’ your hair – perhaps that’s why Color Wow Cult Favourite is so popular. An ideal stocking filler, it dries super-fast, holds style firmly with zero crunch factor, and leaves hair comb-able, brush-able, flexible and shape-able. Light as a feather, this hairspray won’t cloud shine and it allows hair to move naturally, working on curly styles, straight styles and every texture.

A decade ago, Moroccanoil stepped into the realm of cult beauty when it pioneered a new category in the industry: the iconic Moroccanoil Treatment. The 10th Anniversary Set Original celebrates this cult status – and it makes for a stunning Christmas gift. The duo set includes Moroccanoil Treatment (100ml), the original foundation for airstyling that started the worldwide buzz on argan oil, and can be used as a conditioning, styling and finishing tool; and Dry Body Oil (50ml) from Moroccanoil Body™, an award-winning weightless formula that absorbs quickly to infuse skin with argan, olive and avocado oils, locking in moisture while soothing dry areas and helping to improve overall skin texture and tone.

Decleor’s beloved Neroli Bigarade Aromessence has been reborn…it’s something of a ‘Christmas miracle’. It boasts a new “triple efficiency” from the bitter orange tree, harnessing essential oils from the flower, fruit, leaves and twigs. A 100% natural face oil serum, it gives skin a hit of hydration and a boost of radiance, whilst soothing the senses. By using only the highest grade of essential oils, and cold pressed botanical oils, Decleor has produced a cult serum with a fine, silky texture: non sticky, non shiny and easy to apply.

For an on-trend golden glow, Bellamianta’s top-selling Skin Perfecting Illuminating Bronzer highlights, reflects light and adds subtle coverage, giving skin the ultimate natural radiance. It contains lightweight ultra-fine pigments to enhance natural undertones for a flawless finish and a beautiful golden sheen.

Ready to instantly revitalise your skin? Ren Skincare Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial is a classic cult product: formulated with potent water-activated Vitamin C it neutralises “urban grey” in a flash, leaving skin looking firm, toned and smoothed, while reducing the signs of fatigue, photo-ageing and skin imperfections. Skin instantly glows with renewed health and radiance – the perfect pick-me-up for friends and family who are wall-to-wall partying this Christmas.
