Hannah Betts’s Better … Not Young: What Should I Include in This Year’s Wish List …

Christmas Without a lot of beauty joy, Christmas wouldn’t be — certainly not Betts Christmas.

My parents had five children, three of whom were daughters, ensuring that the festive season would be a beautiful riot.

At 8 o’clock, I received my first suitable perfume (a discreet vial of Houbigant’s Quelques Fleurs) and my named hairbrush funded by my Victorian great-grandmother.

Then, in the wake of the edgy and well-maintained Uma Thurman star turn in Pulp Fiction, my academic dad queued Chanel’s Rouge Noir and my mother chose No. 5 bath oil. I was sick.

To date, I can’t think of any more sublime twin offerings.

UK-based beauty columnist Hannah Betts shares tips for buying a memorable beauty gift this Christmas (file image)

Really beautiful things will be remembered forever, as the presence of unexpected beauty can be terrifyingly polite, such as a rash-inducing bubble bath tub or a biscuit-scented candle. ..

What should you buy this year for a woman you want to please, or what tips do you have that might drop you?

Put beauty where it belongs: as your “main thing” (“main thing” is the Betzian term for your high-value item)

I know what my choice is this Christmas, it’s money, and emotionally threatened my boyfriend, for no purpose. Behold, Aromatherapy Associates Moment to Treasure (£ 225, aromatherapyassociates.com), as the master of essential oils calls it, “self-care breasts”.

Not everyone loves aromatherapy. The person who is not wrong.

Nothing is better than calming your face, body and brain. And this is the top of the tree. A treasure trove of 20 award-winning potions and tools, worth over £ 360. Please do not happily cry when you see the contents.

Alternatively, you are a tech grooming demon and are waiting for a state-of-the-art kit. For example, the Shaniderden Facial Sculpting Wand (£ 345, cultbeauty.com), which uses sonic technology to tighten muscles. Do you promote circulation?

Or is the multi-award-winning Light Salon Boost LED Face Mask (395 pounds, thelight-salon.com) clinically proven to increase collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production? It reduces wrinkle depth by 36 percent in 4 weeks. It’s not cheap, but Botox isn’t cheap either.

When it comes to hair, it has to be Dyson. Supersonic dryers are supersonic and superprotective (£ 299.99, dyson.co.uk). I’m also interested in the sound of the GHD Rise Hot Brush (169 lbs, ghdhair.com), which doubles the volume. Just keep it in place in the area you want to liven up, such as the roots.

If you’re obsessed with your skin, would you recommend the Pie Plus Gift Membership (£ 59 / year, unlimited monthly fee) for the subscription service beautypie.com?

Or the extravagant cream de la mer (15ml, £ 70, cremede lamer.co.uk), or the cult brand Augustinus Bader serum (£ 260, augustinusbader.com), eye cream (£ 150). Hit them with) or hand treatment (£ 40).

I love the therapy’s versatile skin soother, a large bottle of Chelish Skin Repair Serum (68 pounds for 200 ml, cultbeauty.co.uk). Votary’s rookie The Glow Kit is also a winner (reduced from £ 143 to £ 95, votary.co.uk).

When it comes to make-up, Guerlain’s heavenly meteorite illuminates the powder ball this Christmas (£ 49, guerlain.com). Dit Hermes’ enchanting sparkle, limited edition Poodle Dolfeble Face and Eye Illumination Powder (£ 75, hermes.com). And I haven’t yet met a woman who can’t give in to Hermes lipstick (£ 58).

Palette lovers need to look for Pat McGrath’s wealth. I’m anxious for the relatively modest Pat Backstage Kit (£ 165, patmcgrath.com), but the pros need to go directly to her 6-pallet Celestial Odyssey Everything Kit (reduced from £ 230 to £ 150). ..

And Fuda boasts a huge collection of eyeshadows, which lifts my little heart. Try Mercury Retrograde (£ 58, hudabeauty.com) and its 18 cosmic shades, or the quieter, but less attractive, Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette (£ 58).

If the eyeliner floats the boat, you’ll need a VB Kajal wardrobe (reduced from £ 142 to £ 128 at victoriabeckhambeauty.com). .. Merry Christmas!

According to it

The boots have been sold out from Curél Deep Moisture Spray, the world’s first microceramide spray released this month. You can see why. Ceramide is a moisturizing substance that the skin produces with age. Split this into excessive make-up for instant hydration and long-term skin tone improvement.

Gorgeous George hit a big 6-0, saying, “I’m sorry to turn 60, but it’s dead.” Last year, Clooney was talked about when he revealed that he was cutting Caesar’s hairstyle himself using a Clippers and Vacuum device called Flowbee (151 pounds, flowbee.com) on the product web. The site has crashed. Silver Fox also defends Procter & Gamble’s traditional brand, Ivory Soap.

Cosmetic craving

I’m biting my lips in the cold — it never looks good. But Dior’s super-flattery, limited edition plum and bronze lip glow color reviver balm was exactly what the doctor ordered,

They make my pretty rough, middle-aged mouth supermodel snort. Lip Glow boasts 97% natural ingredients and can be used as a lip balm, primer, or (in my case) a light lipstick.

The iridescent glow makes the lips look plump and plump, and overall sweeter. It takes 20 years from my mouth.
