I know, some people hate it, some people love it. It's basically the marmite of "holidays" across the globe. Love it or hate it, there are some great gift sets available at this time of the year - whether you're buying them for a loved one, or just yourself. And Baylis and Harding are always top of that list for gifts.

The £10 Eyeshadow Palette - Worth the hype



Finding an eyeshadow palette that does everything you want it to do is always cause for celebration. Or is that just me? Well when you find one that seems to have it all for only £10 - then would you celebrate? Thought so.

Real Techniques PowderBleu Brushes



I love make up, and I love navy blue. I also love Real Techniques make up brushes. So when they bought out their Powder Bleu brush range I knew I had to somehow find a way to add it into my collection. Thankfully I have very generous in-laws who bought me four of the brushes over my birthday and Christmas, so now I'm the proud owner of most of the set. So was it worth it?

Blogmas #6: A Baylis & Harding Christmas



I have to pinch myself when parcels like this appear on my doorstep. Baylis & Harding are one of my favourite body care brands, they do high quality products at reasonable prices, and their packaging is always spot on. Their scents are timeless, and their Christmas gifts are always some of my favourites to look at when I'm walking around the Christmas gift sections in a store. And this year is no different.
 
This year there's some classic scents included, as well as some new pieces, and there's even choices for men. So let's take a look at some of my favourites pieces in my annual Baylis & Harding Gift Guide.


WHAT'S NEW?

First of all let's talk about the Fuzzy Duck Festive Collection. First of all, I'm obsessed with the name and it's inspired by it's own Costwold country inn. The packaging is one of my favourites that they've done, it's so country and cute, yet super festive. There's a few pieces available which I think make great presents, including the Luxury Slipper Set and the Hamper, but I'm totally in love with the Wash Bag Gift Set*. The bag itself is gorgeous and feels like velvet, and is full of little travel goodies in their Christmas scent - Mulberry and Misletoe. You get a shampoo, conditioner, body balm and shower gel. It's a great present for anyone who likes travelling or who is going on a holiday. The scent is to die for, it's very festive and warm and I love it. It's probably my favourite of all the scents I have here.
 
They've also thrown in a new home scent this year as well - which again, is to die for. It's so festive homey. The scent is Winter Spruce and Berries, and smells like exactly that. You can get a diffuser, a three-wick candle or as you see here their Christmas tree candle* - which they did last year as a style as well and just makes a super cute gift. As with all their candles the scent fills the room and the candle lasts a really long time. Just the design of the jar is enough to make me want to light it every evening.
 
And then something else - I'm not 100% sure if it's new but I definitely haven't seen this before, I'd remember - is their limited edition Prosecco Fizz Luxury Hand Wash*. Now I have a B&H handwash in both my bathrooms, and in my kitchen, because I love them. The scents are there and they last forever so they're great value for money. But this scent - oh my god. I wouldn't say it actually smelt like prosecco - I can't remember if prosecco even has a scent, I'll have to buy a new bottle to test. But the scent is amazing, and the bottle just scream Christmas luxe. Not the most exciting present, but dressed up like this and you have a winner.


 
THE CLASSICS
As well as some fantastic new scents, their good old favourites have some amazing gift sets as well that I think everyone will really love. The Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit scent is always a favourite of anyone I speak to, and I think this gorgeous Sequin Bag Set* is such a good gift for anyone who loves beauty, but also has a bit of style. You get a body wash, a body spritz and their hand and body lotion - all three really great products and is really affordable.
 
If you're looking for something more suitable as a stocking filler, or a secret santa gift, then this super cute Midnight Fig & Pomegranate Bath Set* is ideal. LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS! In this tiny tub you get a body butter and shower crème, in this incredible scent. It's presented so nicely, and the little tub is really handy next to the bath or shower to put any jewellery in that can't get wet - just a little tip for you there!
 
Baylis & Harding is a classic brand, it's super stylish packaging, and feels really luxe for a reasonable price tag. I love these sets, and I know if I gave anyone one of these sets, they'd be really pleased.
 
Much Love, Lisa May x
