As Easter weekend creeps ever closer, it’s impossible to avoid the copious amounts of chocolate stacked high on supermarket shelves. While we’re partial to a chocolate egg (or several), there's an alternative gift available this year.
Following the continued success of the beauty advent calendar trend, beauty eggs are emerging just in time for Easter. Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or a friend, they make perfect present for beauty lovers of every age.
Filled with a range of products at incredible value for money, here are the best luxury beauty eggs you can get your hands on this year…
Glossybox, which offers a beauty box subscription service, is launching a luxury egg inside which are seven outstanding products. The brand’s UK communications manager, Deepa Bamrah, says, “To produce a limited edition beauty box in the shape of an Easter egg is the highlight of our year! This is the perfect, luxury Easter 'surprise' for yourself or a special someone.” We agree.
Inside the egg, you'll find:
Illamasqua Iconic Chrome in 'Passionate' (full size), worth £22
Benefit Cosmetics BADGal Bang Mascara (travel size), worth £11
St. Tropez Self-Tan Purity Bronzing Water Gel (deluxe mini), worth £4
St. Tropez Luxe Applicator Mitt (full size), worth £5
Pixi Glow Tonic (full size), worth £10
Patchology Flashmasque Soothe 5 Minute Sheet Mask (full size), worth £8
Living Proof Style Lab Prime Style Extender (deluxe mini), worth £5
Lee Stafford Choco Locks Gloss Box (full size), worth £6.99
Cink Bare Necessity 3D Strip Eyelashes (full size), worth £10
The beauty egg will be available from 9 April, priced at £30 for non-subscribers and £25 for current subscribers. With Glossybox’s Mother’s Day limited edition gift selling out in under 30 minutes, we’re not expecting this Easter treat to be around for long either.
Following the success of their 2018 Easter launch, L’Occitane is releasing another beauty egg, available now, priced at £15. Shoppers can choose from two eggs – the Verbena Easter Egg and the Cherry Blossom Easter Egg (pictured). Each contains a shower gel (70ml), body lotion (30ml) and hand cream (10ml) from either the Verbena or Cherry Blossom range. Give the gift of relaxation to yourself or a friend with this one.
L’Occitane also has a third Easter gift – the Assorted Egg Box. This treat is made up of four individual 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 £19, these are the perfect buy for those opting for a sugar-free Easter this year.
Lookfantastic’s Beauty Easter Egg, available now, is a real deal: the lovely collection of products, worth almost £250, is £65. The epitome of luxury (without the price tag), products are encased in individually-wrapped eggs, consisting of:
Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Cleansing Bar (full size), worth £30
