Personalisation at its best at Boots!
Boots, our favourite high street drug store, has pulled it out of the bag this year by not only providing their stores and online site as a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs, but by bringing a new experience of personalisation to life for the first time this Christmas! And I’m definitely not referring to the personalisation of the printed T-shirt kind. From personalising makeup bags to body butter tubs, here are my top four personalisation creations from Boots this Christmas!
A must for beauty junkies, people who like to experiment with colour, or for the newbie who is still working on perfecting their makeup style. Makeup Obsession has landed in Boots! It’s the first of its kind in store and online experience that allows you to pick your perfect shades and create your own makeup palette. Whether you’re just into your blush or it’s all about the eyes, or maybe you want to mix it all up with a bit of highlight and strobing – starting from as little as £2 per shade – the world is your oyster. This easily interchangeable palette starting from £4 comes empty and in a variety of colours with the option of holding up to 6 or 12 single shades. The perfect value for money, it’s a gift that can be updated with shades or swapped around as trends change so that you can always maintain your perfect colour palette.

The personalised beauty box*
All you regular readers know that I LOVE a beauty box! Yet, as great as beauty boxes are at providing you with that monthly treat, they can sometimes also be a bit disappointing as there are times when you get a product that you don’t really like, or one that you can’t use as it’s the wrong shade or type of product for your skin. That’s where the Boots personalised beauty box comes into play, with plenty of choice ranging from the well-known, high-end and to the simply luxurious. Three items cost £25 and are packed in a gift box. As you can see from above, Benefit Cosmetics was clearly my favourite brand on that day and I just had to show you the cute Soap and Glory packaging that they have this year!
They say that certain scents evoke memories in us, both good and bad. We often pick the same scent to wear based on our mood that day, or how we want the day to turn out. I guess you could say that each scent really does have its own story. A novelty this is, yes, but one that I would love to see under the tree, a modern adult fairy tale book bespoke to me that opens up to reveal the chosen perfume and two deluxe beauty or fragrance minis. Exclusive to Boots emporium stores and online.
Adding a little message gives your gift that extra little touch. From the sweet “I love you” to the husband or boyfriend, to the touching “I miss you” to the best friend who lives half way across the world, down to a simple note to the flatmate who always steals your stuff, you can personalise a perfume bottle with their name.
