Unlike many other gift sets, Nivea‘s festive range of presents – such as this divine Pamper Hamper, £15, – are made up of a line-up practical presents you will actually use.
The gifts contain a curated collection of iconic Nivea products, ideal for beauty lovers and skincare obsessives, and feature reusable items that can be used long after the bells ring out for Christmas day – including this gorge rose gold basket (perfect for stocking all my bathroom goodies in afterwards).
Contained inside the basket are four classic products: the Nivea Clay Fresh Hibiscus & White Sage Deep Cleansing Shower Wash, Nivea Rose & Argan Oil Oil in Lotion, Nivea Micellar Skin Breathe Micellar Water 3-in-1 Make-up Remover and Nivea Luxurious Shower Silk Mousse in Rhubarb Raspberry.
One of my favourite ‘everyday’ products is the Nivea Clay Fresh Hibiscus and White Sage Shower Wash – it leaves skin feeling super clean and velvety soft, without drying it out. I also love the fresh scent while the ‘clay’ formula cleans and hydrates at the same time.
Always an essential in my shower routine is a mousse shower gel and Nivea’s Luxurious Shower Silk Mousse in Rhubarb Raspberry is one of the best. It goes on like a dream, foaming up to cleanse all over with a light fruity scent – making showering a little bit of heaven.
Afterwards, I douse limbs in the Nivea Rose & Argan Oil Oil in Lotion, which has all the benefits of an oil but in a lotion formula, so it sinks in like a dream, leaving no greasiness or stickiness. I also love the pretty motifs and rose fragrance, too.
Last thing at night, I swipe off make-up and the day’s debris with the Nivea Micellar Skin Breathe Micellar Water 3-in-1 Make-up Remover – which is a gentle yet effective way of cleaning the skin before bedtime.
As I said, this gift is conceived around a range classic products that are eminently useable. So much so that it might be hard to wrap it up!
As well as gifting one of these baskets up for a special friend (perhaps!), I also like to boost my gifts with little beauty treats that will be appreciated and used. With its huge range of cult winter ‘skin-savers’ Nivea is also a perfect source for these.
Making for ideal stocking-fillers – and perfect for keeping the ravages of winter at bay – the Nivea Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream is a great all-rounder for low-maintenance beauty.
It is a highly effective, revitalising and moisturising cream that can be used on the body and hands – and because of its light formula – on the face, too. It uses Vitamin E and jojoba oil to leave skin radiant and dewy. This is great for travel as it can double up, meaning more room for bikinis!
Nivea’s Original Care Lip Balm is also eminently useable with its shea butter and oil-infused formula to help avoid chapped lips and to keep them luscious and moisturised. Who doesn’t need a new lip balm?
Finally, these two body Lotions – Irresistibly Smooth and Express Hydration – are great little additions for someone to find under the tree. Delivering deep moisture, which sinks in quickly (so there’s no faffing around), they feel luxurious and pampering. Just so perfect for this time of year.
