Beauty Crackers

Settle in – we’ve got a lot to get through. Absolutely everyone seems to be producing beauty crackers these days, and as with the baubles I wrote about the other day they’re a lovely thing to have on standby, either as an emergency gift or a little Christmas dinner table extra.




Let’s start luxe, then, and this Jo Malone cracker, £33, with it’s harlequin packaging and Basil & Neroli Cologne, Blackberry & Bay Body & Hand Wash, and Mimosa & Cardamom Body Crème is an utter treat. Let’s all hope Santa’s popping it under our trees this year.

This would suit pretty much everyone so is perfect to tuck away as a last minute gift. There’s a Vinosource skincare cracker too, for £9.50, containing three face products. For any fans of Oskia’s Renaissance Cleansing Gel, they’ve got a cracker with a 40ml tube for £18.


Teens might like the Fleur de Force Christmas Cracker, £12, which contains an eyeshadow quad, compact mirror and lip gloss. I also thought that the Feelunique Beauty Tools cracker, £12, would go down with younger beauty fans – it contains a set of eye brushes, a nail file and blender sponge.



A handcream cracker is probably the ultimate emergency gift. Decléor have a 50ml hand cream cracker for £12, Crabtree & Evelyn have a Hand Therapy cracker for £6, Yardley offer a 50ml hand cream in either Lily of the Valley or English Rose for £4 and Cowshed have a cracker containing a 50ml hand cream and a lip balm for £10.




Finally if you’re after boxes of beauty crackers, you find these at Soap and Glory (£16 for six), Rituals will have sets available (I think these will be £19.50 for six), and L’Occitane have a set of three for £20. Add to your Christmas table and enjoy.
