I want to buy a really nice face cream for a family member for Christmas, but I am utterly clueless, can anyone help? The recipient is early 60s and feeling a bit sad about their skin not being as soft as they'd like. I'd like something that feels and smells really nice, ideally with nice packaging (I know, shallow! But it is a present ). And maybe a bit fancy? A tiny pot of something gorgeous would be perfect, budget maybe up to £40? Someone mentioned Dr Hauschka on another thread, is that any good? Sorry, total novice here Any guidance would be great, and sorry if I don't come back to the thread straight away (kids bedtime coming up!). Thanks!
Get the M&S formula absolute sleep cream. Really good product, feels luxurious, nicely packaged, well within your budget (you could probably get one of the other creams in the range too). Highly recommend it.
I came on to recommend origins too , I got a gift box once and it was gorgeous-really good stuff. Other than that , QVC are doing a lovely Decleor set for £43 that looks fab-it has facial oil ,face cream and eye cream..was sorely tempted myself .
I got that origins set the other day. I never get myself nice face cream. It is really, really lovely and I have noticed a discernible difference. It smells lovely and is nice and rich but not greasy. My skin is much softer. The set is a real bargain too, the night cream is usually about that price on its own.
