Christmas Gifts: Skincare Sets

christmas skincare sets gift guide

Cheesy photo alert! I took that with a bad back, as well… Please excuse the quite random zooming and refocusing on this video, and also the weird constant thumping noise in the background. You just can’t get the staff these days, and also I had the camera on a strange setting and also forgot to plug in the directional microphone and also set the autofocus to track something that wasn’t my face. The perils of working with a proper big camera when you have very little spare brain space.

Right! Skincare! I think there’s something here to please pretty much everyone, from teens upwards. If it’s a man you’re buying for, go for the Alpha-H (details below the video). Better than all of these sets made “especially for men” but that only differ in the way they smell! I mean, it is quite nice for them to smell all manly, I suppose, but  in terms of effectiveness, I’d go with the Liquid Gold. Or the Murad. Or the Ole Henriksen. All suitably unisex.

Link for this video, just in case you can’t see it, is here!
