Christmas Crackers are getting a bit of a name for themselves this year, for being wasteful. But hopefully, there isn’t too much in these lovely beauty crackers that isn’t recyclable or reusable. And all of the plastic cracker pieces I have used here are vintage ones I purchased to make into jewellery. The jokes are recyclable – but we already knew that right?!
These make cute gifts, lovely table gifts if you are feeling generous, and just a nice thing to give a beauty-loving friend.

It contains four favourites from the Beyond Bronze range – Airbrush, Face Anti-Ageing Self-Tanning Lotion and a Spritzer Liquid, as well as the Fake Bake Platinum Bamboo Buffing Face Polish and classic pink mitt.
