Get ahead of the game (or bag a beauty bargain) with our round-up of all the best festive investments.

What’s more, you’ll get a FREE travel-sized Blue Moon Cleansing Balm to keep your skin beautifully luminous.

To keep your glow-ho-ho through December and beyond, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s new {Glow Getter} set is a great antidote to the winter’s worst efforts. Counteracting scales to restore radiance, this stars 14 Extra Strength Daily Peel packets with two deluxe, vitamin C-rich treatments to quickly recapture skin’s lost luminosity.
