It’s nearly Christmas and I want to take the stress out of gift-giving this year. I personally love nothing more than to receive a Beauty treat wrapped beautifully under my tree at Christmas. So, here at umeandthekids we have created a roundup of the best beauty and hair care products that your family, friends, hair and skin will defiantly thank you for way beyond Christmas.
Hair Care for Curly Hair Girls
My daughter has the most magical curly hair yet, it has a downside it is so difficult to keep the curls from looking frizzy and tangle-free. The Only Curls range is my go-to product for perfect ringlet curls without the dreaded frizz. It is not the cheapest hair care product on the market but one that actually really works and a little of this product goes a long long way.
Curls, coils, kinks or waves, this range has got you covered. Lightweight, yet ultra-hydrating curly hair products that have been formulated to suit ALL curls.
GATINEAU Age Benefit Collection
The perfect gift for any woman seeking to target the advanced signs of ageing. Featuring a moisturiser, eye cream and brand-new Oil-Serum, this premium anti-ageing collection showcases star products from the Age Benefit™ range. Including formulations enriched with plant extracts from Artichoke Leaf, Hibiscus, Red Algae and Cotton Seed, this trio will help to improve the appearance of pigmentation marks, hormonal changes and loss of elasticity in the skin.
The GATINEAU Age Benefit Collection gift set is packaged beautifully and contains products worth a whopping £241 and this Christmas is only £115 to purchase….Worth every penny!
ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Scrub
This anti-aging exfoliating scrub from OMNIYA CLINIC uses round magnesium crystals to exfoliate dead skin cells and help achieve smoother, brighter and more even-toned skin. It is on the higher price point but a little of this is all you need to bring your skin back to life and I had compliments off my partner after only one use.
This scrub helps prepare your skin for better product absorption. It also contains powerful antioxidants vitamin C, A and E for skin protection and skin glow and boy will you glow using this!
GATINEAU Double Cleanse Collection
Salon quality cleansing is the perfect gift this Christmas. The Therapie Purete™ Range harnesses Mineralised Sea Water as its main ingredient, providing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant protection while promoting radiance and luminosity. The Micellar Foam gently yet effectively removes make-up and impurities from the skin while the Foaming Cleanser deeply cleanses to reveal skin that is cleansed, soft, refreshed and balanced.
I have never used a product that lathers up so well leaving my skin feeling both super fresh and moisturised at the same time. The GATINEAU Double Cleanse Collection is a perfect gift set for Christmas at a great price.

Earthy nail polish was born from a frustration towards unsustainable cosmetic products that do more harm than good to your nails.

Christmas Beauty Gift Guide 2021 – Lacura Intensive Eye Cream
Every woman needs one of these little miracle workers in her stocking this Christmas. I have tried so many eye creams over the years ranging in price and this £3.99 Intensive Eye cream by Lacura at Aldi beats them all hands down. After only 3 days of usage fine lines had started to disappear and my eyes looked fresh and wide awake. For an extra boost to your eye area keep this in the fridge and feel the benefits work for yourself.

Taramar Premium Skincare
Taramar Skincare has a unique approach to Skincare: Marine Biology meets Food & Nutritional Science.
The Serum is a veritable fountain of youth and my favourite product from Taramar.
It Repairs, reshapes, rejuvenates, and restores your skin while luxuriously combating environmental elements. Increases collagen and hydration with powerful Icelandic seaweed extracts, organically-grown viola tricolor, and peptides with strong anti-oxidants. TARAMAR’s patent-pending technology, NoTox®, is free from any cruel or harsh compounds . . . It’s food for your skin that’s so gentle, it’s technically edible!
The Serum promotes a healthy, fortified complexion – so fine lines, dryness, and wrinkles melt away. And it supports the skin in looking ageless while using only the purest, most natural ingredients.
All of this adds up to a beautiful, radiant, youthful, softer, and more luminous complexion.
My skin feels and looks so healthy even after only a few days of using this serum. I have a glow I certainly didn’t have before trying this product and my makeup has glided onto my skin. I am using this in combination with a day and also a night-time cream.
*Every product in this guide have been tried and tested and do all work and give fantastic visible results*
