In partnership with Lancôme
Here we are, somehow only a week out from Christmas Day – a time of frenzied joy where we try to organise ourselves through the chaos of the last few working days of the year and attempt to shepherd our burgeoning list of calendar invites into something that resembles a manageable schedule of holiday fun.
One of the items on that burgeoning list, of course, is holiday gift shopping. Championed by some, dreaded by many. And seeing as we're at the tail-end of the pre-Christmas shopping period, we are (or at least I am) becoming increasingly aware of the gifts that are yet to be bought. But some people can be hard to shop for. What do you get the people in your life who appear – or at least claim – to have everything?
Well, there's one iconic beauty brand that probably has you covered in this scenario – perfect for those last-minute gifts for the person who quote-unquote 'has everything'. The myriad of French beauty offerings at Lancôme Australia are practically unmatched – for their efficacy, their price point and of course, for their ability to light up a loved one's face when gifted.
Lancôme have made it even easier this silly season to find a last-minute gift from their roster of skincare, fragrance and makeup. So below, we've rounded up a couple of our top picks for you to quickly add-to-cart before Christmas morning.
Fragrance is a gift intertwined with the soul – a sensory experience to mark a moment, a person or a memory. Lancôme's best-selling La Vie Est Belle perfume shares notes of blackcurrent accord, iris and patchouli – with an addictive vanilla accord that's at once joyous and feminine. It's also housed in a refillable and recyclable version of its original iconic bottle.
If you simply can't choose from Lancôme's fragrance set – then don't! This Miniature Fragrance Holiday Set is great for the indecisive friends and family members amongst us – or those who simply like to have a bit of variety in their beauty routines. The set also has the added bonus of being travel friendly!
3. Advanced Génifique Holiday Set
This limited-edition box set contains a trio of Lancôme's beauty favourites: Advanced Génefique Anti-Ageing Serum, Rénergie Peptide Cream and the Advanced Génefique Eye Cream. Featuring key ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C, the trio help to regenerate, hydrate and reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines.
If you know anything about Lancôme, you'll know about their iconic hero Absolue series. This four-piece gift set of the range is perfect for all skin types and concerns – and gives your gift-receiver the option of purchasing refills to top up their favourites in future.
Last but not least – this Holiday Eye Routine gift set from Lancôme is an easy winner. Inclusive of their classic Hypnose Mascara, Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover, and Advanced Genefique Yeux Light-Pearl – lashes are left soft, supple and dramatically voluminous.
