FIRST came the beauty advent calendar, then the beauty Christmas cracker, and now comes the beauty Easter egg.
If the thought of tradition chocolate gifts does not appeal, these alternative eggs could make the ideal choice for beauty addicts and those trying to cut back on the sweet stuff alike.
These seasonal treats could also offer some pretty hefty savings versus the price of buying all the goodies inside separately.
For a hard-to-but-for teen, check out Glossybox’s Limited Edition Easter Egg (£25/€29.18 for Glossybox subscribers and £30/€35.02 for non-subscribers, www.glossybox.co.uk).
While sadly not available for shipping directly to Spain, this item could still make the perfect Easter gift for a loved-one in the UK and contains £80 (€93.39) worth of beauty products. This includes Patchology’s Soothe Mask, a luxurious sheet mask which calms and hydrates skin, as well as providing some well-earned relaxation time during the busy holidays. The egg also conatains Illamasqua’s Iconic Chrome lip and eye colour, Benefit Cosmetics BADGal Bang Mascara, St. Tropez Self-Tan Purity Bronzing Water Gel and Luxe Applicator Mitt, and a full size Pixi Glow Tonic to increase skin radiance.
Alternatively, why stop at one egg? Lookfantastic’s Beauty Easter Egg is actually a box containing seven individually-wrapped Easter eggs containing products worth more than €258 for £65 €76 (http://www.lookfantastic.es).
The gift contains an Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Cleansing Bar, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix Marine Cream, Laura Geller Dewdreamer Illuminating Drops, Colour WOW Colour Security Shampoo and Dream Coat Supernatural Spray, AromaWorks Eye Serum, bareMinerals Good Hydrations Silky Face Primer and a Foreo Luna Play sonic facial cleanser to thoroughly remove all makeup when you have had fun experimenting with the eggs’ contents.
