#bigblogmasproject Day 7 | Beauty Christmas Crackers

1 - Clarins Christmas Crackers £39.00
These come in a set of six and each cracker contains a different miniature clarins beauty product. The set includes: Beauty Flash Balm, Eau des Jardins, Hand & Nail Treatment Cream, Gentle Refine, Mini Rouge Eclat Lipstick and Mini Wonder Perfect Mascara. The crackers are exclusive to Selfridges for a lavish £39.00 but if I got to pull one of these at a Christmas table I would be very happy (especially with the mini Rouge Eclat lipstick!)

2 - Cowshed Cracking Cow Christmas Cracker £10
One of the more purse friendly Christmas crackers this year, this Cowshed cracker isn't really actually a Christmas cracker but I wanted to include it anyway. It's a little gift set containing two mini bath and shower gels which are perfect for relaxing after all the Christmas shopping stress is out the way!

3 - Origins Christmas Crackers £45
This is the most expensive cracker set I have featured in this post at £45. Each cracker contains two 15ml samples and an Origins headband for pamper sessions. The samples included are the Clear Improvement Mask, Modern Friction, Make A Difference + moisturiser, Drink Up Intensive Overight Mask, Make A Difference + hand cream, Ginger Burst Savoury body wash and Ginger Souffle Whipped body cream. It's a great way to try lots of different Origins products without having to splurge on the full size but £45 is still a little pricey in my eyes for a bunch of samples. How cute are the patterns on those crackers though?  

4 - Nails Inc Christmas Crackers £29.50
This six cracker set contains one full sized polish in each cracker which for the price of the set is truly great value for money (as each Nails Inc polish is £11 each!) The polishes inside are Baker Street (cobalt blue), Mayfair Mews (blue fibre optic), Marylebone Lane (red glitter), King's Road (gold foil), Kensington High Street (burgundy) and Trafalgar Crescent (silver galaxy). If I had these I wouldn't be giving them to anybody!

5 - Floozie Christmas Crackers by Frost French for Debenhams £7
These are a great value pack of crackers at £7 for six but each one contains vanilla bath salts and a strawberry bath fizzer rather than different products in each. The cracker design is really sweet. Debenhams advertise it as a relaxation gift but I think it would be better suited as girls individual stocking fillers due to all the crackers having the same products. Perfect if you have little girls and want to split up presents so they don't fight (like my mum had to!)

Have you tried any of these cracker sets? Will you be buying any?

  1. Oh how I want the Origins crackers! Such a good idea but a little too pricey in the run up to Christmas. Am hoping that maybe they'll go in the sale after Christmas. The Nails Inc crackers also look lovely x
