QVC is brilliant for one-0ff bargains, and today until November 12, there's a cracking £105 saving on this Elemis Gift of Gorgeous Skincare set. The set is worth £150 and costs just £45 (qvcuk.com) - that's less than half the price of the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream alone, so that means the other five products are completely free. In a choice of Skin Nourishing or Exotic Blooms scents, the collection includes Shower Cream or Nectar, Hand Wash, Hand and Nail Lotion, Pro-Collagen Marine ...

The Most Useful Bauble!

If we could, we'd have our entire Christmas tree decorated with beauty baubles. Every branch would be weighed down with something gorgeous and useful. And we'd definitely have this one on it. The Citrus Twist Hand Sanitiser bauble from Accessorize, £5, looks pretty, is beautifully decorated and contains a really very hand handy hand gel that will live in your handbag well into the new year.

Two Gifts In One

This is one of our favourite Christmas gifts so far ... a gorgeous sparkly silver clutch bag with pampering products for a bargain £9 (Superdrug). From the masters of great value gifting, this little gem from Baylis & Harding is not only pretty, it's also handy. Everyone loves silver sparkles on Christmas Day, and this looks so much more expensive than it is. It's on our list to Santa ...

Get It Wrapped Up …

Today, if you didn't already know - and chances are, you didn't - is National Regifting Day. That means it's a chance to redistribute, let's say, gifts that aren't terribly suitable for you. What a great idea - but in order to get away with it, the gift has to be nicely wrapped and look like you've put some time and effort in. An ideal way to carry the regifting idea through is to wrap the gift in one of Lush's Knot Wraps, from £3.75 (lush.co.uk). Based on the ancient Japanese tradition of ...

‘Tis The Season To … Buy Baubles

Christmas baubles are so much better when they contain a little surprise. Of course, they have to look lovely, like this Bronnley Bauble Tin, £6.50 (House of Fraser). It's all Christmassy and sparkly, and looks fab on the tree. But when the festivities are over and everything feels a bit flat, you can crack open the bauble and steal the gorgeous triple-milled soap inside. The whole thing is gently scented with cinnamon and apple, and the soap is bursting with goodness such as shea butter ...

Sell-Out Festive Lip Balm

This fabulous Prosecco Lip Balm from Waitrose, £2.99, has - unsurprisingly - been the store's best-selling lip balm, and sold out three weeks before Christmas. Thankfully, more stock should now be in store, so we can all get our hands on one. The flavour and scent is based closely on the real thing, so you can a real hint of bubbles when you open the tin, and it tastes amazing on the lips! The only drawback may be that you lick it off throughout the day and go through a whole tin in a ...

Save On Gift Sets

Gift sets are generally seen as well, gifts, really. However, you can make great savings on skincare for yourself by keeping an eye out for holiday collections from big brands. Dermalogica is one brand that has great offers when it puts best-selling products together in a gift box. The Brightening Duo contains Pre Cleanse and Daily Microfoliant, and is a saving of £22.85 (dermalogica.co.uk) when you buy them together. They'd usually cost £76.10 but cost £53.25 in the set. Some of ...

Fab Chunky Crackers

Beauty Christmas crackers are definitely the best part of decorating the tree. And we were very impressed when we came across these big, product-filled crackers from L'Oréal Professionnel. For just £6.99 (lorealprofessionnel.co.uk) there is a choice of four crackers for different hair needs. There is Colour, Strengthen, Style and Nourish, and each cracker contains two decent-sized products. Most crackers of this size are at least double the price, so these are a big bargain - and a ...

3 For 2 On Pretty Gifts

The Laura Ashley beauty range at Boots is one of the prettiest gift collections around this Christmas. It's one of those ranges that works for any age, which is good news as until December 24, the products are on a 3 for 2 offer. And with many of the products all priced under £10, you could get lots of gorgeous gifts for not a huge amount of money. This Royal Bloom Mini Indulgence Gift Set, £10, is one of our favourites in the range, with four products. And we love the Royal Bloom ...

If you've ever counted your foundations, you may have got a shock. One for summer, a different shade for autumn, a darker one for winter, one for nights out, one for bad skin days ... the list is endless. And expensive. That could all change with these magic potions from Autograph. Custom Colour, £10 each (marksandspencer.com) is a collection of tints that just need a tiny amount to customise any foundations. It's a cheap and easy way of getting a bespoke shade to suit your skin at the ...
