The Christmas crackers every beauty junkie will love


The trinkets that emerge from Christmas crackers are always festive, yes, but they’re generally not particularly useful – unless you’re considering entering the mini slinky world cup that is.

So if you’ve collected one too many paper crowns and still haven’t got many laughs from the jovial jokes of Christmas cracker’s past, we advise you make the very exciting switch to beauty bonbons, because let’s be real: a bottle opener keychain is handy, but a mini lipstick still comes out on top.

We’ve rounded up the very best of the bonbon bunch – and trust us; they’re all absolute crackers (pun most certainly intended).

Gift them as stocking stuffers or add them to your Christmas table for a little touch of luxury – you’ll probably even end up with a few extra goodies depending on your dad’s moisturiser preferences.
