DH has asked me if there is anything I'd like for Christmas - normally I ask for one or two beauty products / make up but I really can't think of anything.

I've not really got a beauty regime any more and have gone from wearing make up every day to maybe once or twice a week (pregnant with a toddler). Some nights I can't even be bothered to wash my face (let alone cleanse, tone, moisturise).

I would like some new products and to get into more of a routine of making an effort.

What is everyone else hoping to get for Christmas (or just can't do without) to give me some inspiration?

My mum always buys me Clarins hand cream for Christmas.

I have a toddler too and treated myself to Dior Lip Glow. Basically a fancy tinted lip balm but makes me look a bit more put together and less knackered. Touche Eclat for the same reason!

Or how about a luxurious cleanser? Liz Earle cleanse and polish?

Elemis fruit rejuvenating face mask. It really brightens up my skin and is deeply hydrating. It's expensive (about £35) but lasts a year as I only need to do it every couple of weeks. Haven't had it for about 18months so it's on my wish list as my skin is very tired looking these past few weeks.

Also I identified with your post as I have a 4yo and 1yo and working full time so I never cleanse tone or moisturise any more - just fall into bed each night! - so doing that face mask is great for keeping my skin looking good.

I was also going to say touche eclat cheesy - I bought I for myself after getting a but of extra cash from a competition i entered. I've now been converted to buying some more expensive products because of the length of time they have lasted eg my ysl foundation bought in July still has a third left and has been used every day.

I will be getting another bottle of foundation from dsis and brother in law to keep on hold this Xmas (£32/bottle but for more than 7 months usage works out well)

For skincare I'm a bit more stringent and use Simple face wash, it seems to do the job and I find my skin only looks tired if I haven't had enough water for a few days.

Nars tinted moisturiser is lovely to even out skintone and clarins blue orchard oul is grear for tired skin.
