Beauty Spotted: Can you buy Beauty for Others?

I always buy my mother a set of Shiseido Benifiance. It’s for mature skin and all Shiseido works fantastically for me, so I reckon I’m genetically safe. They have some must have packages at the moment.  A beautiful set which collects their lifting formula, exfoliating disc, essence and advance rejuvenating cream for around £64, saving £22 over buying them separately.

It’s OK to give your mother a face lift in a bottle because you want her to look better, you want her to feel better, and she’s been moaning all year round about extra wrinkles. This is absolutely the gift she wants.

If you have a great relationship with your mother or sister or friend that you know really, really well, Shiseido’s Body Creator really is an amazing product. It’s the gym in a bottle. It’s Pilates for post-turkey dinner blowout.  But it could also have an explosive effect and an insulting one because it is saying your bum could look much better with this.

I made a mistake once in giving something similar to an older cousin.  It went down like a bad boob job. To tell somebody they need to be beautiful you have to know they have to know that really you don’t mind if they’re not or they have to know that they’re beautiful to you anyway.

So, if you want to make a lovely gift for somebody you want to make happy but you don’t know that well, Molton Brown Intensity Gift Set is the one to go for.  Beautiful Ginger Lily Shower Gel and Yuzo Body Lotion are just a couple of the products in a sweetly packaged gift set available exclusively at House of Fraser for £35.

If you are into hint dropping…The Benefit Sexy Stash is a lovely modern looking gift set including Benefit’s signature BADgal lash for £41.50, saving £15 over buying the items separately.  And if you felt like buying yourself a present for all those Christmas parties, Urban Decay Metal Liner Trio is a fabulous thing. You get three of them for £22, so you will save £12.50 instead of getting the individuals. The set is completed with this season’s dusky moody purple, electric green, and a silver gun metal colour which will transcend any season and make you feel a rock chick forever.

All gift sets mentioned are available exclusively at House of Fraser stores nationwide and online at
