While it’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again, Christmas is in fact right around the corner.
I have indulged in some incredible products and tools this year, however, when it comes to beauty and hair, can you ever really have it all?
With that in mind, here are some of the best beauty and wellness products making my wishlist this year.
A Beauty Lover’s Holiday Wishlist
Teeth Whitening Kit
2021 was all about DIY. The popularity of at-home beauty and self-care treatments exploded as a result of lockdowns and restrictions.
While I currently use teeth whitening strips, I have heard how effective LED whitening kits can be. That is why the teeth whitening kit from Bondi Smile had to feature on our wishlist. The treatment can whiten your teeth by 2-8 shades.
The kit contains 3 x 3ml Whitening Gel Syringes, 1 x teeth whitening LED Light and one 1 x teeth whitening tray.
You can never go wrong with essential oils. As you unwind over the holidays, pop some oils on a diffuser for the ultimate relaxation mood. Emulate the smell of an Australian summer with Eco Modern Essentials and their beautiful Australian botanicals range including Eucalyptus, Lemon Myrtle and Mandarin. These pure essential oils are extracted from native and grown plants.
Best of all they are Australian made and Vegan and Cruelty-Free.
Not only do silk pillowcases have benefits for both hair and the skin, it feels like you are sleeping on a luxurious cloud. This is the type of gift you will find you actually use, unlike that cookbook you asked for.
The smooth surface of the silk pillowcase means less friction on the skin and therefore fewer creases that can lead to wrinkles in the long term. Another benefit for skin is that the silk smoothness is less likely to absorb moisture from the skin, keeping your skin hydrated.
This works similarly for your hair with less friction meaning you are less likely to experience frizzy and tangled hair like you would with a cotton pillowcase.
New Styling Tools
After months of no hairdressers in lockdown, it’s time to live our best hair lives with the help of new styling tools.
While I have had my eye on some curling irons, I tend to prefer a good quality straightener as you can achieve both straight and curly styles. The Platinum+ by ghd has therefore made my wish list for good reason.
ghd is undoubtedly one of the best manufacturers when it comes to high-quality and durable styling tools (my last straightener has lasted 10+ years!) and the Platinum+ is designed with several amazing features which makes it perfect for creating various styles while minimising damage.
The curved barrel is ideal for creating bouncy curls if you are looking for multi-purpose styling.
Skin Care Tools
If like me, you’re looking to upgrade your at-home skin care regime, BEAR – a Microcurrent Facial Toning Device by FOREO will do the trick. This small, but mighty device helps to provide a sculpting and toning effect, utilising 5 intensities of microcurrent technology. T-Sonic pulsations help to lift, tone and re-contour age-sensitive areas like your jawline, cheeks, neck and forehead.
Finally, to put a bow on our holiday wishlist is the Christmas range by Glasshouse Candles.
Nothing says Christmas quite like the festive scents by Glasshouse. My personal favourite is White Christmas — a composition of cedar leaf, fruity clove, pine and eucalyptus. Despite it being any but a white Christmas in Australia, the scent will evoke the feeling of a wintery escape.
If you can’t choose, try the whole range in a small set.
