Warning: my pick of the week’s new product launches comes with a hearty dose of festive party season beauty. Yes, I know it’s still only October!


Lancôme Luxury Christmas Crackers

If none of the very many beauty advent calendar launching this year have grabbed your fancy, how about beauty Christmas crackers? Not exactly a new idea but Lancôme has just launched a box exclusively at Selfridges. There are six crackers in a box, each cracker containing a mini Lancôme product.

label.m Hair Perfume

Find your hair starts to smell a bit stale half-way through a party? How about squirting a bit of hair fragrance on it before you head off to keep things fresh? label.m has just launched Hair Perfume, its first fragrance designed to nourish hair with hydrating argan oil, and containing notes of cedarwood, nutmeg and bergamot. Hair perfumes have become fairly popular over the past year and this one can be used on the body too. Priced £19.50 for 50ml and available from early November at label.m concept salons, TONI&GUY and essensuals, and More on label.m here.

  1. I am so out of touch with the beauty world since having my kiddies.... I love the idea of the beauty product crackers... LOVE IT!!! Im confused with the blingy eyebrows, and the hair scent though, where is the normal hairspray and perfume? (I don't mind all the Christmas products, i'm Christmas Obsessed!)

  2. I love the look of the Birchbox one and the lancome crackers!

  3. Sounds like a fab way to begin the festivities. :) I adore Lancome! I got their free gift last summer (on Bastille Day) and it had a yummy loaf of french bread in it! T.

  4. Good to know well ahead for Christmas. Those lancome crackers have caught my eye and I'm looking forward to seeing people's eyebrows with crystals on!

  5. Oh how cool is the Lacome Christmas crackers - I really want this - perfect festival treat

  6. I'm so excited for Christmas already and I think I need those lancome crackers in my life x

  7. I have tried quite a few of Lancome products and I like them. I am not so familiar with the others though. Also, not a big fan of beauty boxes, maybe because I have never tried any.. :)
