#TeamCultBeauty share the gifts they’re wishing for this Christmas

Looking for some giftspo? #TeamCultBeauty share the gifts they’re asking Father Christmas (and their girlfriends, husbands, sisters, dads and colleagues) for this year. From magical masks which induce precious Zzzzzs to the super-cool candle that’s tickled our resident tech guru, take inspiration from those who have insider access to all of the globe’s greatest beauty.

Daria (Design) – Drunk Elephant {The Littles}

“I think anyone would love to receive this. It’s great for all skin types, with seven products that leave my complexion super-hydrated and clear.”

Dan (Tech) – Bella Freud’s {Lion Candle (Cedarwood & Poivre)}

“Perfect to make my home a little less man-pad, a little more cosy. I much prefer earthy scents to florals. Plus, that’s one good-looking candle.”

Carmen (Marketing) – Charlotte Tilbury’s {The Bella Sofia}

“This set contains all of my favourite Charlotte Tilbury products. It’s so luxurious, pretty and something I’d feel guilty treating myself to!”

Debra (Finance) – Urban Apothecary {Luxury Candle in ‘Oudh Geranium’}

“I would love to receive one of Urban Apothecary’s ‘Oudh Geranium’ candles. They fill any room with the most beautiful scent and help the pressures of the day just melt away. I often gift this candle when I get invited to a friend’s for dinner as it lasts so much longer than a bottle of wine and is definitely well received!”

Chikay (Affiliates) – Omorovicza’s {Blue Diamond Set}

“I LOVE Omorovicza kits. The products in this set are so indulgent and illuminate skin unlike anything else. Can’t imagine anyone being disappointed by this.”

Stacia (Buying) – Slip’s {Cult Beauty x Slip Exclusive Sleep Mask}

“When I find myself on a plane or in a hotel room anywhere in the world, I find sleep comes easier with this. A great gift for any jet-setter.”

Lena (Customer Service) – Cloud Nine {The Waving Wand}

“All I want for Christmas is great hair! This is the perfect tool to achieve gorgeous, tousled tresses without damaging my precious lengths.”

Verity (Content) – NARS {Ransom Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set}

“I preach to anyone who’ll listen about NARS velvet pencils – they’re jam-packed with pigment, incredibly long-wearing and easy for even the laziest laydeez. I like to apply and blend out with my finger a blurry, lived-in look. I can’t wait to add four new shades to my (extensive) lip-wear wardrobe.”
