Anyone else feel like they deserve all the treats after this totally crazy year? Us too. That’s why we’ve poured ourselves a cocktail, stuck the ol’ Bublé on and made a list of all the things we hope to see under the tree…
Whether you need some inspo for a last-minute gift or you want some ideas for what to buy for yourself when the Boxing Day sales hit (they’re going to be mega this year!), we’ve got you. Here are the hair and beauty products that Team AMM are head over heels in love with!
Charlotte Tilbury Bejewelled Chest of Beauty Treasures
OMG, where do we even begin with this insanely amazing advent calendar? Charlotte Tilbury is a total beauty queen and her Bejewelled Chest of Beauty Treasures is jam-packed with loads of iconic products including Charlotte’s Magic Cream and Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk, the ultimate bridal nude lippy.
It’s sold out on her website but still available to buy online at Selfridges for £150. Expensive? Yes. But girl, you’re totally worth it.
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder
Loads of people worry about using powder because they think it will dry out their skin or look too powdery – but you won’t have either of these problems with this miracle setting powder. It contains one of our ultimate holy grail ingredients, hyaluronic acid, to keep skin hydrated while simultaneously mattifying skin and keeping make-up in place in the most natural, silky way.
If that sounds like product goals to you then get it on your list – it’s £42 on the By Terry website and will last you ages.
Redken Wind Blown Dry Finishing Spray
If dry shampoo and hairspray had a baby, this Redken spray would be the result. Not only does this hold a style in place, but it subtly adds texture and volume to your hair for a full but incredibly natural look. Think Brigitte Bardot casually strolling through St Tropez with super-cool beachy waves. We couldn’t live without it!
It’s £11.40 at lookfantastic and there are always discount codes to get it for even more of a bargain.
GHD Rise Hot Brush + Root Lift Spray
If your hair feels flat and lifeless and you haven’t found anything that gives you the oomph you want, this dream team will sort you out. The award-winning hot brush is used on dry hair to lift your roots and give your hair body and bounce for that flawless salon blow-dried look, and the spray elevates it to the next level by giving an amazing volume boost.
Wella Sebastian Dark Oil
If the amazing retro 70s packaging isn’t enough to draw you in then the contents of the bottle definitely will. This miracle product feels like a gel but acts like an oil, eradicating frizz to make your locks look mega glossy and healthy. It’s especially great for thick hair and is an absolute must-have for anyone who colours their hair.
Get it online at Beauty Bay for £25.50.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Serum and Magic Cream Duo
When it comes to Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic skincare range, the hype is real! We love this serum and moisturiser combo because it instantly makes skin look fresh, glowy and bright, providing the perfect canvas for foundation. Loads of make-up artists have this in their kit, and this mini duo lets you try the products out in smaller sizes to see if you like it before you splurge on the big sizes.
It’s £47 on the Charlotte Tilbury site and if you spend more than £85 before Boxing Day, you’ll get a free lipstick!
Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum
If staying indoors all year has left your skin looking dull and dry, AMM’s very own Anne Marie McElroy swears by Dermalogica Biolumin-C serum for serious glow. It contains wonder ingredient vitamin C to fight the signs of ageing, reduce wrinkles and deliver mega radiance. Can we take a bath in it, please?
It’s £85 from Dermalogica, and trust us – the results are worth it.
Zo Skin Health Exfoliating Polish
You can’t beat an exfoliant for making your skin feel super smooth and helping your other products to absorb even better. The key is to choose a product with super-fine particles (ie, chuck that St Ives scrub in the bin!). This one by Zo Skin is absolutely incredible, as it contains ultra-tiny magnesium crystals and tons of vitamins to give you the glass skin look we all crave.
Check it out on the Zo Skin Health site.
Sassoon Edit Body Mousse
If you associate mousse with the 80s, it’s time you met a modern one! Edit Body Mousse is nothing like the formulations of old, instead giving mega volume in a totally weightless way. We like to combine it with Arbonne Dry Oil for the ultimate combo for any hair type.
Buy Edit Body Mousse for £20.90 on Bohairmia.
