Benefit Best of Benefit tins, from £39.50

Any beauty-loving teen will flip her lid over these – I know I would have back in those days when premium cosmetics seemed like the ultimate sign that life was going well. There’s so much to recommend these kits. Firstly, the products themselves are cleverly chosen heroes from Benefit’s most loved products, like hugely popular The Porefessional balm, the iconic Benetint stain and the UK’s best selling premium mascara, They’re Real. The contents of each tin is all killer, no filler. The products are full sized too. But what elevates these from great products to amazing gifts is the packaging. The large, brightly coloured tins, featuring cartoon strip women of different races and looks, are just gorgeous. Any teen would be thrilled to keep them in her bedroom, filling them up with cotton balls, pens, love letters, lipsticks, jewellery, console games, Rizla (just me? Oh). They’re great quality and will last years after the products have all been used up. They almost make me want to be sixteen again so I can collect them all.
