This year, before I started writing about gift suggestions, I’ve asked my friends what would they like to get. I’ve invited them to choose a single beauty product, whether it was a perfumery, make-up or skincare one. And, of course, I asked them to tell me the reason-why. So, find below five fab gift ideas from five different women – I’m sure they will inspire you!
Irina (27 years old) told me that she desires a new perfume: Amo from Salvatore Ferragamo. It was launched this year, and she tested it at the airport before leaving on a skiing escapade. She didn’t buy it on the spot, so since then she only thinks about it! She likes it because it’s an oriental-floral aroma, with campari, black currant, sambac jasmine, rhubarb, Tahitian vanilla, ambroxan, and sandalwood notes. And it smells utterly sensational on the skin, she told me!
The make-up palette
Corina’s choice (31 years old) simply surprised me: she chose the Glamour on the Gold make-up palette from Givenchy. She took me by surprise because we know each other for such a long time and there are days when she doesn’t wear any make-up at all. “OK”, she said, “I don’t use make-up every day, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t adore quality products. And this palette is so tiny, so elegant and it contains everything you need!”
The skin care set
As she’s so concerned with the face care, always wondering if any wrinkle might have appeared, Magda (35 years old) craves for the Visionnaire set from Lancome. She has used other products from this line and was thrilled! “For me these are the best anti-wrinkle products, they really work!”
“Ah, sure I still need another lipstick”, said Anca (29 years old). I was absolutely sure: she has every shade of lipstick at home – it’s her favorite make-up product. And I impatiently waited for her to divulge to me the one that she desires, especially since I couldn’t imagine the lipstick that she would still need or lacked. Her answer: the La Petite Robe Noir set from Guerlain. A set with three different nuances – of course, how could she have settled with only one? J
The body lotion
Rebecca is 32 and a big body cream fan. Specifically, she uses it by the book, after every single shower. And she leaves no spot un-hydrated. Well, what gift do you think she would love to receive in March? A body cream from Ahava: Mineral Botanic, yes, the one with peach and pineapple. Ahava is her newest crush (she likes a lot all the products), yet this cream smells heavenly. I must try it myself!
