I can't quite believe that there are only 33 sleeps till Christmas! I always get so excited around this time of year because I'm already thinking about all the different things I want to make for our Christmas meal as a family. Last year's Christmas was EPIC. We hosted for our whole family, that was a whole 13 of us, along with our little pup, Tupac. This year things will definitely feel different, as did Diwali. But I know we will do extra little things here and there to make sure it's still a memorable one. I have to admit that one of the best feelings I get on Christmas is gifting my loved ones with a special gift, that I know they will love (and also wrapping - I love wrapping presents up!).
Whether it's buying for a loved one, secret Santa, or even dirty Santa (which by the way we played last year and it was EPIC!) I love to put thought into any gifts I buy or make - I totally get this from my brother, he's amazing at giving gifts! I always try to put myself into the person's shoes to see if there's anything they would genuinely love or may have even spoken about in the past. I always feel like giving that extra little attention when it comes to gifting plays a huge part in touching that person's heart, no matter how big, small, or the price.
One of my go-to places when it comes to gifting for anything to do with skin or body care has to be Kiehl's, both in-store & online. I always remember my Brother when I think of Kiehl's as he introduced me to the brand years ago & he is definitely one person that comes to mind whenever it comes to gifting anyone Kiehl's during the festive period. It's not only a brand that is loved by so many (including me!) but what I love is that there is something for everyone... even furry friends! Tupac loves their doggy shampoo, conditioner & shine sprits! No matter my budget, I know Kiehl's has me covered!
There's a great selection of limited edition single products as well as epic gift sets! My favourites have to be the Brighten Up & Glow gift set - this has some of my staples & personal Kiehl's hero products including the Ultra Facial Cream & Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution and I can't forget the Power Packed Essentials which includes my ride or die vitamin C serum & eye cream, the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate and the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing & Dark Circle-Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum!
MY FAVOURITE PRODUCTS
With Black Friday just around the corner, I thought I'd let you know what my favourite Kiehl's products are. They have an incredible 40% off at the moment using my code KAUSHALKIEHLS at checkout! So here we go...
Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask - I used this for my pithi ceremony for my wedding and it always brings back so many beautiful memories. It's such a gorgeous brightening face mask that can also be used as a scrub before taking it off. It always holds a very special place in my heart.
Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil - one of my go tos for taking my makeup off is this! It melts away all of my eye makeup & smells gorgeous. With hints of lavender, it gets me nice and unwinded after a long day of wearing makeup. If you're an oil cleanser fan, you'll love this!
Ultra Facial Cream - the moisturiser which is found in so many MUAs and celebrity MUAs kits all over the world. This is perfect for any time of the year as it's suitable for any skin types & the perfect match to wear under makeup. It's been a favourite of mine for so many years.
Creme de Corps Smoothing Oil-to-Foam Body Cleanser - if you haven't guessed already, I love oils & when I came across this oil-to-foam body cleanser it won me over completely! It not only cleanses my skin beautifully but it also leaves my whole body feeling so nice and moisturised every morning.
Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing & Dark Circle-Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum - this is the eye serum that I've fallen in love with this year. It's packed with Vitamin C which visibly helps reduce any darkness under my eyes. Speaking of which, it'll definitely be something I'll be picking up in the Black Friday offer as I only finished mine a few weeks ago and am due a top-up.
Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution - I've left the best till last and that's one of my favourite serums (ever!). I remember stumbling across this years ago when I asked a sales assistant if there was anything to help even out my pigmentation and I picked this up after her recommendation, and I've never looked back since! I get so many messages and comments from so many of my amazing social media family how they've also fallen in love with it too - it makes me so happy!
Christmas may be different this year but I know now matter how big or small the presents we gift our loved ones these years, it will for sure hit differently. I know so many of you are also Kiehl's fans like I am and hopefully you found this post useful or something inspiring for gifting season this year. I would love to know if there's anything you'll be cheekily gifting yourself... I've got my eye on the Limited Edition Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution to pop under the tree.
To me, love from... Me 🙂
