If you're anything like me, your skin probably struggles a bit during the Christmas period. The weather is cold and harsh, and that's before we even get into the bad food which causes breakouts. Giving a skincare gift for Christmas is a great way to make sure someone you love is looking their best in January, so we thought it would be useful to round up some of our faves. Let's get into it:
VENN - Best for supercharged skincare
Skincare should be led by science, which is why we love the VENN product range. Combining more than 25 years' worth of skincare research with proven active ingredients has allowed the team at VENN to create intelligent skincare formulations that deliver clinically proven, visible results. Each of their products is powered by research and includes formulations which will deliver incredible results (the pictures on their website speak for themselves).

Peep Club - not a dry eye in the room this Christmas
Winter weather can play havoc on your skin, particularly the area around the eyes. Peep Club has you sorted - their products are specifically designed for this delicate area, so although very effective their products are never harsh. Their main product is a special wand which helps to treat this area, but we wanted to highlight their Coconut Eye Balm. The balm has been infused with organic green coffee seed extract, an antioxidant that helps to boost microcirculation in the skin (helps to de-puff) and decrease the appearance of dark circles. Everything you need to combat those late Christmas nights!

White Rabbit Skincare - Best for plant-based perfect skin
We all want the products we buy to have a minimal impact on the Earth, which is why it's so great to find a brand like White Rabbit Skincare. Everything in their range is not only made from plant-based ingredients but they're also produced by hand and totally planet-friendly. There is even a great 'Planet Friendly Practices' page on the WRS website which outlines how everything they do is from a sustainable perspective, from the packing peanuts they use to the way they offset their carbon emissions.
It also helps that these products are of excellent quality, and everything in their range is certified Vegan, Palm oil and Cruelty-free. Their straightforward formulas make the products ideal for sensitive skin. Explore their range of gift sets (ideal for Christmas) here - whiterabbitskincare.co.uk
Volition Beauty - Best for a must-have mask
There is a great range of products within the Volition Beauty collection, but we want to highlight their Detoxifying Silt Gelée Mask. This product helps to detox, hydrate and balance your skin in a way that very few skincare products can. It's made with sustainably harvested black silt from fresh Finnish lakes and plant-derived squalane, and is just packed with goodness. An absolute must-have mask!

ARK Skincare - Best for luxury gift sets
Gift sets are a great Christmas present idea, and we're huge fans of the range from ARK Skincare. Firstly, you can sort their product range by age, so you can find the ideal skincare gift for anyone in your life regardless of their age. Secondly, the sets are designed for specific purposes. So for example, you can buy 'Age Protect' sets which are ideal for people wanting to preserve their youthful looks.
We love the entire gift set range and think they'd be great as a Christmas present, explore all the options here - arkskincare.com
