As Easter weekend creeps closer, the allure of a chocolate egg (or several) is growing ever stronger, but there's an alternative gift available that beauty lovers might crave even more.
Following the continued popularity of beauty advent calendars, the latest collection of beauty eggs are emerging just in time for our second favourite public holiday. Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or a friend, they make perfect present for every age.
Filled with a range of products at excellent value for money, here are the best luxury beauty eggs you can get your hands on this year…
You might find your annual Easter egg hunt is a lot more fun if there is a Lookfantastic Beauty Egg at the end of the trail. You'll have to move quickly though, as the offering has been a sell-out for four years in a row and this time looks to be no different.
Crack it open and you'll discover six luxury products, from brands including Elemis, Eve Lom and Color Wow, worth over £220, but retailing for only £65. Lookfantastic beauty box subscribers will also receive an extra £10 discount on the beauty egg, which will even apply if you purchase a subscription at the same time as the limited edition Easter offering.
The full list of products included are:
Following the success of last year's Easter eggs, L’Occitane is once again releasing not one but two beauty egg options. The Cherry Blossom Easter Egg (pictured) and Verbena Easter Egg contain a shower gel, body lotion and hand cream from their namesake ranges in beautifully illustrated casing.
The second alternative is the Mini Easter Eggs Set - which is a little like a collection of beauty-filled Christmas crackers. This treat is made up of four individual mini eggs. Inside each are two 10ml Shea Butter Hand Creams in a selection of different scents, including almond, rose, and classic shea butter. Priced at £24, these are the perfect buy for those opting for a sugar-free Easter shared with long separated loved ones.
£20 for subscribers, £25 for non-subscribers
The beauty box subscription service Glossybox launched its luxury beauty egg two years ago and it sold out in an incredible five minutes last year! So, you'll need to move fast to get your hands on the 2021 version of this limited edition gift when it goes on sale on the 26th March. Luckily, you can join the waitlist now.
The reason for all the excitement: ten covetable luxury products worth over £80, from brands including Nars, Juliette Has a Gun and St Tropez. There are also 50 special eggs that contain 'golden tickets' inside. Find one of them and you'll win £100 worth of Pandora products as well as £50 to spend on Lookfantastic, which would make it a very happy Easter indeed.
The full list of products included are:
Can't decide between chocolate and beauty? With the Lush Golden Eggs collection of bath and body favourites, you don't have to. The sweet selection includes products that utilise the softening effect of cocoa butter to pamper your skin.
The highlight of the collection, which also contains two bath bombs and a shower gel, is definitely the body butter bar, which is carved into the shape of a bunny. It's the perfect Easter treat.
Rituals have two brilliant offerings for Easter this year, with a choice of scents between two of its best-selling ranges - the Ritual of Karma or the Ritual of Sakura (pictured).
Both would make a really lovely gift as inside each egg you'll find full-size pampering essentials that smell that so good you'll find your shoulders relaxing as soon as you inhale them.
You just have to make the difficult decision between the pampering shower gel, body cream and hair mist collection (the Ritual of Karma), or the shower foam, hand balm and white floral fragrance (the Ritual of Sakura). Either will get you lots of brownie points, should you not choose to keep them to yourself.
Easter might not be the most conventional time to start thinking about your health but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be, especially when Myvitamins helps you by wrapping it up with a literal bow.
Inside the brand's limited edition egg is a selection of best-selling beauty supplements, including collagen sticks and gummies, that work to strengthen your hair, skin and nails. What's more, you don't even have to give up chocolate: you'll also receive two Beauty Hot Chocolate Stick Packs that offer a sweet treat with a side of brain-boosting pantothenic acid and vitamin C.
