Because we all deserve a daily delight this festive season…

Maeve Galea

When you’re all grown up, the count-down to Christmas can feel more exhausting than exciting. Navigating busy shopping centres, making sure presents are wrapped and coordinating Christmas lunch is enough to make even the most enthusiastic and organised amongst us want to clamber into bed for a nap. Luckily some of our favourite beauty brands have come up with a way to inject some much needed indulgence, self-care and child-like-glee back into the countdown to Christmas.
