As a kid I loved Christmas crackers but these days a party hat, plastic toy and bad joke aren't as entertaining as they used to be! Introducing beauty Christmas crackers for big kids who love makeup and skincare.


I have 2 Christmas crackers and one hanging tree ornament to introduce to you and show you what is inside. The Mary Kay Christmas cracker is the perfect mix of makeup and skincare while NUXE have lip and skin hydration covered with their Christmas cracker and adorable tree ornament.

NUXE Christmas Cracker
The classic gold and white design of the cracker encases two beautiful skincare products. The Reve De Miel lip balm is one of my go-to products for keeping my lips soft and hydrated so I was very excited to see this included in the cracker. Not only is the product fantastic but the limited edition coral packaging is beautiful. Also induced in the cracker is a 30ml dry oil which is the product that NUXE is best well known for. This is definitely a beautiful Christmas gift or stocking stuffer to get any girl introduced to the brand. 

NUXE Hanging Tree Ornament 
I can not get over how adorable this tree ornament is! It is a little baby travel sized version of the NUXE dry oil packaged inside a clear bauble that you are able to string to your Christmas tree. This would be such a fun gift to hang on the tree and see if the person notices or put it at the back of the tree and direct them there when you want to gift it to them.

Mary Kay Christmas Cracker 
This makeup and skincare cracker nails it with their holiday red theme which includes 2 makeup products and 2 skincare products. The Mary Kay cream lipstick in Really Red is your classic bright red lipstick with a smooth and hydrating formulation. The Mary Kay Nourishine Lip Gloss in Rock N Red is great to pair with the lipstick or wear on it's own for a sheer festive lip. This is perfect to gift on Christmas morning so that the person can get use out of the red lip for any festivities they have that day. Also included in the cracker is a Sugar and Spice gift set which includes a body lotion and lip balm. The foiled red packaging suits the holiday theme perfectly and is a great Christmas gift.
So that is a quick look at some beautiful mini gifts this holiday season that any makeup or skincare obsessed girl would love receiving. The gimmick is a fun take on the Christmas tradition of crackers while incorporating the idea of fun beauty gifts.
